Bed Bug Extermination in Hunt Valley
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 Hunt Valley MD 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 Hunt Valley Maryland 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
Bed Bugs? Exterminator?
I Think I Have Bed Bugs, And I Wanted To Know What The Exterminator Will Do And How Long It Will Take.
Ie, He Will Fumigate The House For X Days.
Only your exterminator can make that determination.
Pets, if you have pets, thats a complicating factor.
Could be fleas, could be lice, bedbugs etc.
Most critters and their larvae cannot survive a trip through the washer and a dryer on a hot setting.
If your mattress is old, then maybe it's time for it to go too.
Time for a serious house cleaning, evaluate possible causes, get a exterminator in there and get all of your bed things through the laundry.

Depends on how much of an infestation there is. You can do a simple smoking which will cost about 80 bucks, or you might have to do an advanced full house smoke which can cost about 350 dollars and leave you out of the house for a while. If you are lucky a few traps can be set and they can spray the place down for about 60 dollars. Unless it takes him a few hours , then he will charge for labor which can cost 20 an hour ! >.<!!!
Can I Leave Food In House For Flea Extermination?
Getting Carpets Taken Care Of, Do I Need To Remove Food?
No, but everything should be in closed cupboards or in the fridge, or at least covered.
The flea-bombs make a sort of mist that's heavier than air, so it spreads out on the floor in a thin layer. A tiny bit of it gets into the air and settles on everything in the room, but it's too small an amount to worry about. But you can at least avoid eating it by closing off food or covering it.
