Professional Pest Control in Somers
Pest control and management refers to any system or measure that seeks to eliminate or regulate the population of insects considered harmful to human and animal health and the environment. Pest control in Somers CT requires a lot of work and resources but it is a necessity, especially for homes. Here are the reasons why pest management is important and why every homeowner should consider applying it:
1. Preventing damage to homes and structures
In the U.S., people spend about $5 billion for the repair of damages caused by termite infestation. Termites consume wood and wood products such as ply-board and paper. Once they have burrowed into the wood components of the home, they can eat beams, floorings and walls from the inside. This makes the structure weak and vulnerable to collapse, leaving household members at a risk. Termite infestation can be especially problematic in older homes and structures that have not been treated. In areas where termites are known pests, managing a home to keep it safe from termites requires constant vigilance and assistance from pest control agencies.
2. Preventing allergies
Pests can cause a range of issues in people, such as skin allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. Bed bugs and mosquitoes, for example, are notorious for causing skin rashes. Pests can also carry certain allegens that can cause strong allergic reactions in some people. Cockroaches, for example, can cause allergies in at least 7% of the population. They are also one of the leading causes of asthma in children.
3. Avoiding diseases and other health risks
Leprosy, skin infections, urinary tract infections, Lyme disease, intestinal infections, dysentery, dengue, malaria and food poisoning are just a few of the diseases and health problems that pests can cause. They also carry a number of bacteria and viruses that can affect human and animal health. Although many of these diseases are treatable, they can cause serious health issues in children, the elderly and immune-compromised individuals, many of whom will require professional medical treatment or hospitalization. That, in turn, can translate to millions of dollars in medical costs.
4. Preventing damage and deterioration of furniture, carpets and clothes
Pest control has to be applied in order to save furniture, carpets and clothing and avoid the expenses associated with repairs and replacements. Burrowing insects are notorious for causing damage to the wooden and fabric components of furniture. Some, such as carpet bugs, moths, cockroaches and silverfish are also attracted to fabric, often using it as a source of food.
5. Maintenance of food supply
Food supply is critical to the survival of the world’s populations. On a macro economic level, it also influences the world’s economies and supports majority of today’s active industries. Without proper pest management, almost 20% of our food supply will be wasted due to consumption of rodents. Each year, millions of dollars’ worth of food is lost to rodent attacks and infestation. By controlling the threat, it is possible to keep food supplies at manageable and useful levels. On the Somers Connecticut home-front, implementing pest control measures can help prevent food waste and contamination. Pests do not only consume food, they also leave behind undesirable organic matter such as dead skin, body parts, feces and urine, all of which can affect the quality of the food we eat.

Some Common Q & A’s
I Cant Get Rid Of These Fleas, I Have Had My Home Sprayed By Pest Control & Still They Wont Go!?
Im At My Wits End Now, I Had My Home Sprayed By The Local Authority Pest Control On Thursday And They The Adult Ones Should Be Dead Within 24 Hours But To Expect The Eggs To Hatch Within A Week But They Are Still Here. I Have Got Rid Of My Sofa And We Are Sitting On Deck Chairs Until I Dare Confirm Delivery Of My New One As I Dont Want That To Get Infested. I Am Vaccuming The Beds Twice A Day And Washing Everything In Site But Still They Wont Go, The Cats Have Been Frontlined By The Vets So They Are Clear. I Have Resorted To Spraying Myself And The Children With Insect Repellent Spray In The Hope They Will Leave Us Alone, I Really Dont No What To Do Now. Please Any Adice At All I Will Try. Thanks
would have to know what the externimantor used before I could guess on what you need to expect. Know that you can care less about any eggs hatching, they are of no concern to your problem, what you are dealing with is the emergence of adult (biting) flea from the pupa stage. They were in a protective cocoon so the insecticide could not effect them. Depending on the actual conditions where they are developing it takes around two weeks to go through this stage (they can actually stay in the pupa stage for many months) So the ones that went into the pupa stage two weeks before your treatment probably emerged the last few days where as the ones that went into that stage the day before your treatment may not show up until 2 weeks after the treatment. I suggest vacuum multiple times daily until your sick of your vacuum, the movement / vibration helps to stimulate the ones that are ready to emerge to go ahead and emerge from the cocoon. Assuming your exterminator used a residual product on the floors the sooner they emerge the sooner they get into the product and die, but if they emerge next you or your pest they will hop straight to you never getting into the residual. You can use a fogger but that will only kill the exposed adult fleas, but can give you some relief.
My Apartment Landlord Gave The Keys To The Pest Exterminator And He Came In And Stole Some Things, What To Do?
Please I Need Help.
I Was Sleeping While The Pest Exterminator Used The Keys To Come Inside My Apartment And When I Woke Up And He Was Inside My Apartment And He Said He Needed To Check For Roaches, Then Everything Went Ok And He Left.
Soon After He Left, I Checked For My Wallet But Some $25 Applebee'S Gift Cards That Were On The Table Were Missing..And I Reported It To The Landlord And She Said She Was Going To Call The Orkin Company And Tell Them About It. The Pest Exterminator Was From Orkin'S And I Was Suspicious Because He Asked Me Why I Have So Many Gift Cards And Also Asked If The Food At Applebees Is Good.
Please I Need To Know What Is The Best Thing To Do In This Case Because I Lost A Lot Of Money On Those Gift Cards.. And The Thing That Bothers Me Most Is That He Came Inside The Apartment While I Was Sleeping Because He Had The Keys From The Manager.
Your legal claim is against Orkin, not your landlord.
You will need a police report. Orkin is likely to settle out of court, but you may need to sue. The DA will handle the criminal charges against the thief.

Oh yucky, I hate roaches. This is why I could never live in FL. I have heard that you should not do any DIY pest control if you plan on calling a professional, because it interferes with their efforts.
You can buy professional stuff on line. (the brand is Maxforce.) But I have heard boric acid is the most effective treatment. You're supposed to dust it with a little brush basically everywhere.
I'd call the pros, if I were you.
