We associate spring and summer with seasonal allergies, there are also non-plant and triggers for allergies and asthma attacks. Household pests, such as cockroaches, crawling insects, dust/bed mites, mice and rats, are all major triggers. Symptoms of allergies from cockroaches and other pests include itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, wheezing or shortness of breath. Asthma symptoms would also include;

·         Coughing during the evening while you asleep

·         Wheezing

·         Ear Infection

·         Skin Rash

·         Sinus Infection

·         Chest tightness

·         Shortness of breath

An infestation of mice or rats means the introduction of allergens. A protein found within the urine can trigger asthma and other allergic conditions. The residue from rodent urine can spread all over, with the highest concentrations usually in kitchens. Rat urine is the leading cause for the spread of leptospirosis, which results in liver and kidney damage. Leptospirosis – This is a bacterial disease that can be transmitted by encountering infected water by swimming, wading or kayaking or by contaminated drinking water. Individuals may be at increased risk of Leptospirosis infections if they work outdoors or with animals. The saliva and shedding body parts of cockroaches can trigger both asthma and allergies. The best ways to prevent cockroach allergies is to eliminate insects from your home.

  • Keep the house clean, including kitchen floors, sinks, counters and stoves
  • Keep food containers and bins sealed
  • Fix any leaks that could give cockroaches access to water
  • Avoid paper laying around, laundry, magazines or dirty dishes

We may be a long way from winter, however, your home becomes even more appealing to mice and rats the closer we get to winter moving through autumn. Cold temperature leads them to search for warm places and your house is the perfect fit.
