How bugs affect your home?

different-types-of-beetlesHere are major effects of bugs in your home:

  • Increased Health Risks 

There are several health risks that can come from having bugs in your home.  Most of the bugs in your home can infect you with one blood-related disease of the other. Even the bugs that introduce none bacterial infection into your system leave you with the very discomforting itches and redness of the skin. These itches, redness, and inflammations, can lead to severe cases of infections, insomnia, depression, stress, and anxiety.

  • Increased risk of infant mortality 

The body system and immunity of infants are not as mature as those of the adults living in bug-infested homes. Therefore, kids are at grave risks from bug stings and bites. Studies have shown that infants exposed to bug bites and stings stand a much higher risk of developing debilitating and deadly diseases like childhood lymphoma, leukemia, and some other such diseases.

Best preventive measures against bugs 

There are several ways to keep these pesky bugs out of your home for good so you won’t have to share your lovely home with the uninvited guests. Let’s see some of these preventive measures:

  • Inspect what you bring home 

Most times we introduce bugs into our peaceful home when we buy some inexpensive used furniture. Inspecting anything second-hand before you buy and bring them home remains one of the best preventive measures for keeping bugs out of your home. So, whether you are buying new furniture or beddings, make sure you check them thoroughly or treat them accordingly before you bring them home.

  • Do the regular check 

These bugs can creep into corners and spaces in the wall, on your bed, sofas, curtains, ceilings, kitchen cabinets, drawers, and elsewhere. Checking your beddings, drawers, chairs and all other furniture regularly for bugs is another good way of preventing bug infestation in your home.

  • Check your hotel room for bugs when you travel 

One night in the wrong hotel might be all you need to have those annoying bugs creeping all over your home. Before you climb into any hotel bed, make sure you take time to ensure it is bug-free. You can do the same for the sofa in the hotel room.

When you get home, separate every piece of clothing you traveled with if you suspect any bug infestation in the hotel room.  Dry clean these clothes using boiling water before bringing them into your wardrobe.

  • De-clutter your home regularly 

Bugs can hide in an untidy heap in your home, so make sure you do regular de-cluttering. Check every heap and get rid of things you no longer use. This way these bugs will find no place to hide and launch their onslaughts from.
