Why Pest Control Is Important

We have all seen the various pests that would like to think your home is their own. They may be insect pests, venomous reptiles, or the occasional fuzzy little rat that is carrying more than a big hunk of cheese through your house. Rats could also be harboring dangerous diseases.

You have two choices when it comes to these invasive pests. You can choose to share your home with them, and you can bet they will be moving in, or you can choose to keep them outside where they belong. Most people choose to keep the pests outside. This is something that BUGCO® Pest Control in Houston can quickly remedy.


Rodents bring with them more pests. Fleas, ticks, and mites love to hitch a ride on the back of a rat. These tiny pests get introduced into your home when a rat decides to take up residence. These are the little pests that transmit dangerous diseases.

Rats can also cause more problems. They consume about 20% of the world’s food supply, and they have been known to chew through wires. This has contributed to fires and even death.

Rats are not the only problem either. Every year over half a million people are admitted to an emergency room for insect bites and stings. The number of deaths related to these bites is relatively tiny. On average, 150 people die each year as a result of an insect bite. These deaths could be the result of an allergic reaction or a venomous bite. Either way, proper Houston pest control can quickly help lower these numbers. Are you still thinking that just dealing with these pests is a good idea? Here is some more food for thought.


Termites are yet another pest that is causing billions of dollars in damage each year. The annual costs in repairs are well over the five billion-dollar mark. Do you want your home to become part of this statistic?

These are just a few examples of why commercial pest control is so essential in our everyday lives. All of these pests are here for a reason, but you don’t have to share your home with them. Let BUGCO® Pest Control put a stop to pests before they enter your home.
