Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month: Your Guide to Pest Control and Prevention

Published April 21st, 2024 by Exodus Exterminating

May is recognized nationally as Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, a time when health professionals, patients, and communities come together to raise awareness about asthma and allergies. In Rochester, NY, where seasonal changes can significantly impact those with respiratory conditions, understanding the connection between pests and allergies is crucial. 

Exodus Exterminating is committed to educating our community on how proper pest control and prevention can contribute to healthier living environments, especially for those affected by asthma and allergies.

Understanding the Link Between Pests and Allergies

Pests such as cockroaches, mice, and dust mites are known triggers of asthma and allergic reactions. These pests can be more than just a nuisance; they can seriously impact health. For example, cockroach droppings, saliva, and shed skin can trigger asthma attacks in sensitive individuals, while dust mites thrive in warm, humid environments, contributing to a range of allergic symptoms.

The Role of Pest Control in Allergy Prevention

Effective pest control and prevention measures are key to minimizing the presence of allergen-producing pests in the home. Here are several strategies Exodus Exterminating recommends to reduce your exposure to these common allergens:

Regular Home Inspections

  • Conduct regular inspections of your home for signs of pest activity. Look for droppings, shed skins, and other indicators that pests might be present.

Seal Entry Points

  • Seal cracks and crevices around doors, windows, and the home's foundation to prevent pests from entering. Pay special attention to areas where utilities and pipes enter the home.

Reduce Moisture

  • Fix leaky pipes and use dehumidifiers in damp areas of the home. Pests are attracted to moisture, so keeping your home dry can deter their presence.

Clean Regularly

  • Regular cleaning can help reduce allergens and eliminate food sources for pests. Vacuum frequently, wash bedding in hot water to kill dust mites, and keep counters free of crumbs and spills.

Professional Pest Control Services

  • Consider professional pest control services for a comprehensive approach to pest management. Exodus Exterminating offers environmentally responsible solutions tailored to your specific needs, ensuring your home is protected from pests and the allergens they produce.
