Have you ever thought of cleaning or protecting the ceiling area of your property?
Probably not. Here’s why it may be necessary:
Termites have an insatiable appetite for cellulose found in wood – eating 24-hours a day, seven days a week. They cause serious and costly damage and compromise the structural stability of a home
Birds such as pigeons roost in areas above ground and will readily nest in steeples, as well as in voids or inside buildings and other protected areas.
The fact remains – rodents and all pests, can have harmful effects upon your family’s health and your own. Rodent droppings most often cause allergic reactions in human beings but can also cause disease, including the potentially deadly hantavirus.
German cockroaches can be found throughout structures but show a preference for warm and humid places.
Eggs are laid in cracks of wood and the larvae tunnel into the wood, filling the surface with a very fine powder-like dust.
Roof rats get their name from their tendency to be found in the upper parts of buildings. Roof rats are known for the damage they cause by chewing on materials.
The fact remains – rodents and Bat guano can build up in attics and eaves that have been used by bats, and even if the human occupants of the building are not aware of the dung, they can be harmed by it. After guano has lain around for a couple of years, a fungus can grow in it, releasing spores into the air that cause histoplasmosis in humans.
Medical studies have shown that cockroach allergens cause many allergic reactions, especially in children. They cause asthma in children. These allergens build up in deposits of droppings, secretions, cast skins, and dead bodies of cockroaches.
