Why is NOW the right time for pest control?

With summer comes not just heat but also pests. Just like we like to escape the summer heat and take solace in our air-conditioned homes, similarly pests also choose this time to thrive and infiltrate homes. Hot and dry conditions attract pests causing inconvenience and potential health hazards.

Let’s explore four reasons why it’s time to call in professional pest exterminators.

 

Rising Temperatures and Increased Pest Activity

The extreme summer temperatures in Qatar create an ideal environment for pests to thrive. As the mercury rises, pests such as cockroaches, ants, flies, mosquitoes, and rodents become more active and seek cooler, more hospitable environments. Residential and commercial properties provide the perfect shelters where pests can find food, water, and protection from the heat. Without proper pest control measures, these invaders can quickly establish themselves, leading to infestations that are difficult to manage.

 

Health Risks Associated with Pests

Pests are not just a nuisance; they pose serious health risks. Cockroaches and rodents can contaminate food and surfaces with harmful bacteria, leading to foodborne illnesses. Mosquitoes are carriers of diseases such as dengue fever, Zika virus, and West Nile virus. Ants and flies can also spread pathogens that can cause various infections. In a hot and humid climate like Qatar’s, maintaining a pest-free environment is essential to protect the health and well-being of your family or employees.

 

The Attraction to Water Sources

During the summer months, pests are particularly attracted to sources of water. In Qatar’s humid climate, areas with standing water or excess moisture become breeding grounds for mosquitoes and other pests. Leaky pipes, clogged drains, and even outdoor water features can provide the necessary hydration pests need to survive and reproduce. Regularly inspecting and maintaining your property to eliminate these water sources can significantly reduce the likelihood of pest infestations.

 

Protecting Your Property

Pests can cause extensive damage to property. Termites, for example, can weaken the structural integrity of buildings by feeding on wood. Rodents can chew through electrical wiring, insulation, and even structural components, posing fire hazards and leading to costly repairs. By investing in regular pest control services, you can protect your property from the destructive tendencies of these pests and save money in the long run.
