As we recognize April as National Pest Management Month, Rottler’s Pest & Lawn Solutions invites homeowners in St. Louis and throughout Missouri to find out how they can protect their homes from insect and rodent activity.
“When most people think of pests, they likely think of the ‘ick-factor’ associated with an infestation, but few people consider the serious health and property threats that pests like termites, mosquitoes, cockroaches, rodents and stinging insects can pose,” says Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the National Pest Management Association (NPMA).
While carpenter ants, mice and other home invaders may seem harmless, they can cause significant damage as well as and introduce serious health conditions into your home. You can, however, take steps to prevent pest problems and keep your home pest free.
