Don’t Let These Pest Allergies Ruin Your Family’s Health

14-06-2018


Household pests are a very common cause for allergies that a lot of people don’t realise. If you or someone in your family suffers from allergies or respiratory problems, pests can be very dangerous to your health. 

The more you and your family are exposed to allergens and have regular contact with them, the more likely it will be that allergies will develop. Symptoms can range from a runny nose, to a full blown allergic reaction that has life threatening consequences. This is why it’s so vital to keep pests out of your home. 

Here we are going to look at the most common pests that will cause health problems inside your home. 

Cockroaches 
Having a cockroach allergy can be particularly dangerous for those who have asthma. Faeces, saliva and dead bodies of cockroaches trigger allergic reactions in people who suffer from them. If you or someone in your household has asthma, their symptoms are very likely to increase. Other signs of allergies to cockroaches are itchy skin, throat, nose and eyes. 

Dust Mites 
A dust mite allergy is something that is caused by the droppings and dead bodies of dust mites in your home. Once these allergens enter your body, an allergic reaction is triggered. This will then result in your nose, eyes and lungs being inflamed and causing serious discomfort. If you are exposed to dust mites over long periods of time, the regularity of the symptoms will increase. And having long term exposure to these allergens has serious consequences, with lasting damage to your health. 

Stinging Insects 
A lot of people in the UK are allergic to bee and wasp stings. And being stung can be a nuisance, especially in the warmer months, for anyone. If you are allergic to stinging insects, just one sting can be life threatening. People who have this allergy have to carry an epi-pen with them at all times to avoid the life-threatening consequences. 

If you know you have a stinging insect allergy, there’s a few precautions you can take. The best thing you can do is pest proof your garden as much as possible. Brush them off your skin, don’t swat them and make them angry. Try not to wear overly bright colours outside and avoid strong smelling perfumes too. You should also try to cover your skin as much as possible outside too. 

There are a lot of treatments available for pest allergies, and it’s important to seek the right medical advice for these. But the allergies will become worse if you don’t get rid of the pests. You can do this by calling in Catch-it Pest Control today and eliminating any health problems occurring from household pests.
