Health and Safety
Pests are more than a mere annoyance; they can cause serious health issues within your family and threaten the safety of your home.
The National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as well as Johns Hopkins Medical Institute have conducted studies which provide evidence that cockroach and mouse allergens are a significant contributing factor to asthma in children. Cockroaches, mosquitoes, rodents, and ticks and other such pests are capable of bringing a wide range of diseases into your home which cause side effects ranging from slight discomfort to death. Some of these diseases include Lyme disease, West Nile virus, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, bubonic plague, and encephalitis.
Pests are capable of causing more than medical problems; they may also cause physical damage to your property. Termites alone cause over a billion dollars worth of damage each year all over the country. Whereas 365,000 homes will require help from the fire department each year, over 2 million homes will seek termite treatment in the same time period.
We are aware of the concerns many of our customers have regarding the impact of pest treatment on the environment. At Hopper Termite & Pest Management, we only use the professional chemicals and techniques required to treat and prevent pest problems.
