PESTS THAT CAN TRIGGER ALLERGIES IN THE HOME

 

Many people in the Las Vegas Valley that experience the repercussions of suffering from allergies, like itchy eyes and a running nose, often attribute these unpleasant symptoms to culprits in the great outdoors. However, common household pests including rodents, cockroaches and dust mites have also been documented as triggers of allergy and asthma symptoms, especially in children.

 

To fight indoor allergens from these pests follow the following tips.

 

  • Keep a clean kitchen – cockroach saliva, droppings or decomposing body parts contain allergens that can make allergy symptoms worse. If your kitchen is clean you are cutting off the food supply to the cockroaches and they will have to go somewhere else.

 

  • Vacuum on a regular basis – once a week will help you rid your home of dust mites and other pest droppings

 

  • Dispose garbage regularly in a sealed trash bin. This step will you help avoid rodents.

 

  • Store food in sealed containers and keep fresh fruit in the refrigerator.

 

  • Routinely check under sinks for areas of moisture – fix all leaks. Moisture is a magnet for all types of pests.

 

  • To avoid dust mites make sure your bed linens are fresh – dander builds up on your sheets and that is a magnet for dust mites.

 

  • Inspect the outside of your home for entry points – like near utility pipes and cracks near the foundation. If you find a crack – seal it up with a silicone based caulk. Also use steel wool to fill larger holes.

 

If you do find an infestation you should call a licensed professional pest management company to evaluate and treat the problem.
