ALLERGY AND ASTHMA TRIGGERS IN THE HOME
There are many bugs and pests in The Las Vegas Valley that can be found in homes that could trigger asthma and allergic reactions. Dust mites, cockroaches, stinging insects, rodents (mice and rats) could find their way into homes from Spring Valley to Henderson.
The spring and summer months are associated with seasonal allergies from plant pollen however common household pests also are a factor in allergic reactions and asthma. Common symptoms of allergies include itchy eyes, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Asthma symptoms can be coughing, wheezing, tightening of chest and shortness of breath. During a severe asthma attack “air hunger” and chest tightness can be severe and can require immediate medical attention.
It is important to identify and reduce exposure to specific triggers. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation and the National Pest Management Association conducted a joint survey of allergists and not surprisingly 97 percent of those taking part in the survey believe a pest free home is an important step in preventing allergy or asthma symptoms. They rank cockroaches, rodents and stinging insects as the most problematic pests.
Nearly 90 percent of the allergists surveyed would recommend that a patient that suffers from allergies or asthma consult with a professional pest management company to help alleviate the problem. Keeping allergies and asthma in check is a two-fold process – consult with a doctor and consult with a qualified pest control expert.
