Pests are pretty much the worst creatures out there. Having an infestation of them in your home is even worse. They cause a whole load of damage to our London properties each year, cause physical harm and even spread diseases.
Here is a list of the pests we consider to be London’s top 5 most unpopular bugs!
- Bed Bugs
Our bed is a safe haven, where we go at the end of each day to relax and have a good night’s rest. So it’s everyone’s worst nightmare to be bitten by a pest while they’re sleeping. Over the past few years, the London bed bug population has risen drastically, and many London home and business owners have experienced a full-blown infestation. Bed bugs are elusive, and hard to exterminate. DIY treatments will not be effective against them, and you have to make a conscious effort to prevent an infestation from occurring. For effective bed bug treatment, a resource like Empire Pest Control is the first choice for this blogger because of their reputation for excellent levels of health and safety.
I think everyone hates cockroaches. They are certainly icky, and can also threaten our health. Cockroaches spread bacteria and germs to any surface, food or water source they come into contact with. This is how we get infected by them. They can also trigger serious allergic reactions and worsen the symptoms of asthma.
They are so annoying, especially when we’re trying to enjoy some rare sunny UK weather. Flies also contaminate anything they come into contact with, including food. One touch off a fly can spread more than 100 different types of germs, which is really gross! Keeping your home clean and taking out any rubbish will help you avoid having flies in your home.
Although they don’t affect your health, lice are common sources of unease amongst parents. They are easily spread throughout schools, but are very treatable with products you can buy at the chemists.
The bite of a mosquito is the most horrible thing about them. Red, itchy welts on your skin are the last thing you want. In other countries, they can also spread dangerous diseases.
If you think you have a pest infestation, you should always call in a pest control company to help you get rid of the problem before it becomes too severe.
