Home Pest Control in Coopersburg
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 Coopersburg PA 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 Coopersburg Pennsylvania 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 Integrated Pest Management Real?
I Read On A Local Farm'S Website That They Use An Integrated Pest Management System Which Reduces The Amount Of Pesticides Used. I Buy Organic Foods, But Am Interested In Buying Local Too. My Question Is, Would The Food From A Farm With Ipm Have Less Pesticide Residue Than Conventional Produce Found In A Large Supermarket? Thank You.
Yes, food from a farm using IPM would have less pesticide residue than regular produce. IPM uses the least amount of pesticide possible, by trying to use a combination of alternative ways to reduce pests. IPM does occasionally use pesticides, but usually a small amount because the point of integrated pest management is to reduce the pests to an economically viable amount, meaning they try to reduce the amount of pests to the point where they can harvest enough produce, rather than just spraying everything with pesticide to kill all the pests.

At A Dead End With Bed Bugs, Exterminator Says There Are No Signs, But I Continue To Get Bitten...?
Over The Past 3 Months (Since I'Ve Moved Into My New Apartment) I Have Experienced Bug Bites And Have Been Perplexed About Where They Were Coming From.. Until Just The Other Night I Found A Bed Bug.
I Killed It And Kept It And Immediately Called My Landlord Who Sent Out An Experimenter. The Exterminator Identified The Bug As A Bedbug, But Couldn'T Find Any Other Signs Of Bedbugs And Concluded That I Must Have Brought Just One Home Somehow. I Followed Some Tasks That The Exterminator Gave Me (Wash Everything In Hot Water, Steam My Mattress, Vacuum, Ect.) But Alas, I Awoke This Morning To Find 4 New Bites.
Now, My Landlord Is Refusing To Pay For An Additional Inspection Or Treatment Because A &Quot;Professional&Quot; Already Came And Said There Were No Signs Of Infestation! I Can'T Afford An Exterminator On My Own And These Bugs Are Driving Me Crazy! Help!
Go to a doctor and have them tell you whether or not your bites are similar to bed bug bites.
If they aren't, then you probably have spiders or mosquitoes and you should look at completely cleaning out your apartment and closing all windows and doors to prevent further infestation.
If they are bed bug bites, then it is possible that the exterminator missed the signs of the bed bugs. You should look under the sheets and around the seams of your mattress to see if you can find them yourself. If you see them, take pictures and document the date that they were found. You can bring this to your landlord, proving that they are required by your contract to call the exterminator again, because there is definitely an infestation.
