Pests & Health

Where appropriate Zero Pest Control provides its clients with relevant pest-related health and safety information. For example, some pest species are associated with infection and disease. Rats carry the pathogen that causes Weil's Disease (Leptospirosis) which is occasionally fatal to humans and cockroaches have been found to carry the pathogens that cause tuberculosis, cholera, leprosy, dysentery, and typhoid, as well as over 40 other bacteria (like salmonella) and viruses that can cause disease.

Remember, most insect species are relatively harmless and sometimes 'casual intruders' like ground beetles wander into buildings - these issues are easily remedied. Occasionally insects in buildings play a positive role by serving as indicators of other and more serious problems eg: Booklice my indicate high relative humidity levels in a building and blowflies may reveal the presence of rodents. So, distinguishing the good guys from the bad is necessary and that's why correct insect I.D. is critical.
