Insects and rodents cause a wealth of health concerns. Here are a few points to keep in mind…
- About one-quarter (24%) of homeowners surveyed believe the risks associated with pest infestations have increased over the past few years.
- Filth flies can carry diseases such as E. coli, leprosy, typhoid and polio.
- 11% of U.S. living room floors and 13% of kitchen floors exhibit elevated concentrations of cockroach allergens, levels previously found to be associated with significantly increased allergic sensitization.
- Body lice infestations spread rapidly under crowded conditions where hygiene is poor and there is frequent contact among people.
