3 Benefits Pest Control Provides the Planet

You might be surprised to learn the global benefits of pest control. Maybe you heard about the days of harmful chemicals like DDT. But today, pest infestations are treated very differently. Responsible and reliable pest control companies identify a specific pest problem and treat it with environmentally friendly and safe products.

Reliable and responsible professional pest control services ensure the safety of your family, protect global food supplies, and reduce health risks caused by many pests.

Let's look into the benefits of pest management, besides the time and money saved to get rid of pests over the long term, and how you can benefit at home in Boston.

1. Home Protection

Termites are one type of pest that can cause severe home damage. Many termite species eat nothing but wood, and that includes the wood in your home or business, the studs, the beams, every piece of wood in your home.

The National Pest Management Association, or the NPMA, says termites cause $5 billion in damage to properties every year. Think of how much more damage they could cost if we did nothing about it!

Most homeowners can live for years, as long as a decade or more, without knowing that their walls are infested with termites that digest the house from the inside out.

2. More Food Worldwide

Grasshoppers and locusts are infamous for eating and destroying crops worldwide, but did you know that ⅕ of the world's crop production is damaged or destroyed by insects and other arthropods every year, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization, (FAO)?

Cockroaches can also eat your everyday foods, like meats, dairy, grain products, and other foods. Almost every kind of arthropod either eats other arthropods or some type of plant.

Who knows what could happen if we ceased all pest control efforts to protect our crops? Luckily, aims to protect crops and other foods are improving and continue to reduce the impact arthropods have on humans today.

3. Disease Control

There are many pests out there, and everyone wants to avoid these, especially if it carries diseases. Rodents, mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas are considered the original carriers of the plagues. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a list of pests that are considered vectors for many diseases, and luckily, bed bugs are not one of them.

Here are a few illnesses that Mosquitoes can spread:

  • Chikungunya Virus
  • Dengue
  • Malaria
  • Zika Virus
  • West Nile Virus

Malaria, luckily, is one illness that almost doesn't exist in the United States anymore because of good hygiene, proper healthcare, and mosquito control.

Ticks carry a few diseases as well:

  • Lyme Disease
  • Anaplasmosis/Ehrlichiosis
  • Babesiosis
  • Tularemia
  • Spotted Fever Rickettsiosis
  • Powassan Virus

Lyme disease is a problem throughout the wooded and humid regions of the United States, including the Northwest and Northeast coasts.

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
