Flea Extermination in Alstead
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 Alstead NH 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 Alstead New Hampshire 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
Is Pest Control Required For New Homes?
I have never used a professional pest control service and have never had bug problems while living in the States. The Philippines was another matter. I would simply plant baits such as Roach Hotel or similar controls if your are in a roach friendly environment. If in fact a problem rises, and you can't get control, maybe a pro then. I personally think that the stuff they spray in and around your home are a greater hazard to your families' health than few spiders.
How Can I Get Rid Of Bed Bugs Without Calling An Exterminator?
By The Way Have You Used This Product?Http://Www.Spraywayretail.Com/?P=Sw003r
I Bought It But I Still Have Bed Bugs?
I'Ve Heard Of Steam Cleaners But Where Can I Get That Here In California? Home Depot?
"The first thing to do is to wash all bedding in very hot water. Stuffed animals or soft toys that cannot be washed should be sealed in plastic bags for a couple of weeks.
The second step in getting rid of bed bugs is to vacuum everything. Vacuum the mattress, any upholstered furniture, and the drapes. Use the crevice tool on your vacuum to do the bed frames, the baseboards, and any furniture near the bed. Of course, vacuum the carpeting as well.
These steps will not remove all bed bugs and eggs and larvae, although it will remove most of them." from http://quickcare.org/misc/how-to-get-rid-of-bed-bugs.html
At this point you need some kind of pesticide. Please consider using an all-natural one. They can be found in your local health food store and sometimes a place like Tractor Supply will sell them. Some can even be made with food from your grocery store. I have used black walnut extract to rid my home of bed bugs and it worked wonders.
Here is a website with more information: http://www.getridofthings.com/get-rid-of-bed-bugs.htm
Commercial pesticides are comprised of extremely harmful chemicals produced in a laboratory. It is possible for them to harm your immediate health, future health or have an unknown impact on the environment and evolution.
When researching what to choose, always remember to consider where the information is coming from. What corporation had the information published? Who did the scientists who did the research work for? You can make the results of scientific research say anything you want - and all corporations have an agenda.
I hope this was helpful.

How Do I Handle This Fumigation ?
I Have A 3 Floor, 2 Family Home. My Tenants Upstairs Are Moving Out And Suddenly I Have Roaches.. Ewww! Oh Man, It Is So Gross.
So When They Move Out I Decided To Use The Fumigation Bombs And I Am Going To Do One Day Upstairs And Then One Day In My Unit Downstairs. I Figure This Way They All Die And Have No Where To Go. I Am Going To Repeat This Process For A Week And Hopefully End The Problem. I Hope!!!
When I Do These Fumigation'S I Am Going To Take All The Curtains Down And Sheets Off The Bed And Put Plastic On The Beds. Is There Anything More I Should Do? Everything Is Leather So I Can Just Clean Everything Afterwards.
Any Tips Or Suggestions??
before fumigating, seal all cracks inside and outside of the home. either read the instructions on the poison's packaging or hire the pros to clean the home.
How Do I Get Out Of My Lease Due To Bed Bugs?
The Apartment Building I Live At Has A Huge Problem With Bed Bugs. They Have A Pest Management Service That Baiscally Stays There To Come Every Week To Fumigate Apartments. I Didn'T Know This At The Time Of Moving In, Even Though I Asked About Bed Bugs, And I Was Told They Did Not Have A Problem.
For The Past Two Months, I Have Dealt With Being Bitten And Sleepless Nights. I Have Had Two Fumigations, And Still See Bed Bugs Scurring Around. I Want To Vacate By July 31, 2011. My Lease Requires 30 Days Notice, But I Just Want Out At This Point. I'Ve Been Living At My Bf'S Place The Past Couple Weeks, Because I'M Too Freaked Out To Live In My Apartment Anymore. I Know I Should Have Given Notice Sooner, But Wanted To Give The Fumigations A Chance.
My Lease Says I Can Get Out Anytime, As Long As I Give 30 Days Notice, But I Would Still Have To Pay Another Months' Rent On Top Of It.
How Do I Get Out Of The Lease Without Being Bound To The 30 Days Rule, And Still Get My Security Deposit Back?
You can probably get out of your lease due to constructive eviction. However, be aware that the bed bugs are now in your stuff and you're probably going to carry them to your new place.
