If your child seems to have asthma that won’t get better even with treatment, it may be due to pests. Certain pests can worsen allergy and asthma symptoms.
There is hard scientific evidence that the presence of pests in your home will agitate your child’s asthma and/or allergies. In this article we will go over the pests that have this effect.
Cockroach feces and saliva can trigger allergy and asthma attacks. Roaches are found everywhere but especially in heavily populated human centers. If you see roaches and your child has asthma, you should have the problem taken care of immediately.
Rats and mice can also cause allergy and asthma attacks. Not only are the feces and saliva an irritant to a child with a sensitive system, the child may be allergic to the rat dander itself. These animals stay mostly hidden during the day and at night crawl all over your belongings and furniture, searching for food.
Tiny bugs that live in the cracks and crevices of your home may be irritating your child’s breathing pathways. Dust mites live in the dust of your home. This is a tiny insect that can be controlled with proper pest maintenance.
You can try to manage these problems yourself or you can call a professional pest company that will show up every month and handle the treatment for you.
