May 2020: We are open – pest control protection amid the COVID-19 crisis
Why is Pest Control considered an Essential Business?
The pest control industry has always played an essential role in the protection of public health, food, and more for homes and businesses. Considering rodents contaminate or consume about 20 percent of the world’s food supply, and other pests spread diseases such as the West Nile virus, Lyme disease, salmonellosis, hantavirus, and encephalitis. Not to mention insects like cockroaches, bed bugs, and rodent allergens trigger allergy attacks or even cause people with asthma further issues.
With so many people stuck at home, you may start to notice more than you have in the past. Droppings or strange noises in the walls, or a little trail of insects making their way into drawers that would have been missed while running in and out of the house before the stay home orders.
However, our team at Northwest Pest Control can help people eliminate and prevent further pest infestations keeping you, your family, and your businesses healthy.
If you are concerned with exposure we offer many different options that may even be able to administer on the exterior of your home or offer options that you could do yourself with our instruction to keep exposure to a minimum.
