Pests, Pest Control, & Asthma

1. What’s the connection between pests and asthma in children? Could you explain it?

Cockroaches and rodents contain allergens that aggravate existing asthma in children.

2. How does pest control (commonly called exterminating) help alleviate asthma?

Proper pest control will help prevent or remove pests that can trigger asthma. A pest management professional, often referred to as an exterminator) can inspect the home for these pests, treat to get rid of them and provide homeowners tips to prevent reinfestation.

3. What are cockroach/mouse allergens? What is it in these pests that causes the problem?

Allergens include pest “frass,” or carcasses, feces and other debris.

4. What happens after you control the pests? If the frass is left behind, won’t it pose a health risk also?

The residual frass is still an allergen, even after the pests are removed. A pest control professional can remove the frass as well.
