Itchy eyes, a runny nose, or a bad cough is something we all dread but learn to expect as our allergies are provoked. Surprisingly, pollen isn’t the only culprit that can spark up these irritating symptoms. Common pests that you see around your home can also be the blame for your allergy attacks. Do not take these little creatures lightly – they can induce health-threatening reactions if you’re allergic. Pest control is the most effective solution to rid these pests from your home. The team at Insectek Pest Solutions has compiled the top pests to keep an eye out for this allergy season.
Insects to Watch For That Can Cause Allergies
One of the most common pests to be found in your home are cockroaches. These creepy crawlers leave cockroach “grime” from place to place. This grime is composed of their saliva, skin, and feces and is more than likely to be littered throughout your home. Allergies induced by cockroaches can turn into chronic illnesses. Some common symptoms include ear infections, sinus infections, skin rashes and wheezing. If you have asthma, call a pest control company immediately and remain extra cautious because cockroaches are known to trigger asthma attacks.

2. Dust Mites
Although minuscule dust mites cannot be seen, these pests cause a significant health risk. These mites feed on your dead skin that is more than likely shed all over your home. Their waste is what triggers the initial allergic reaction. These pests can inflame your skin, eyes, and lungs and unfortunately reach their peak in the summertime. Because dust isn’t something you can permanently get rid of, the best defense is keeping your home clean and calling a pest control professional to rid your home of dust mites and any other bugs that may be triggering your allergies.
Like the other pests mentioned, rodents, such as rats and mice, can induce your asthma, as well as cause a stuffy nose, eczema and other infections. A rodents urine, saliva, droppings, and skin, are all known triggers to allergies. With temperatures rising, these creatures will try to seek shelter from the heat in your home. Due to their active lifestyle, they will spread around your home, leaving allergens everywhere.
