Singapore -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/03/2014 -- Contaminated food, contaminated drinking water, contact with animals, person to person contact, etc are the major reasons behind the spread of infectious diseases. Singapore pest control aims to prevent the spread of disease, which is caused by animal vectors. However, it is also helpful for preventing food and water contamination by pests.
Pest Control in Singapore
Singapore pest control aims to destroy pests such as mosquitoes, rats, cockroaches, housefly, etc. Mosquitoes spread diseases like malaria, yellow fever, and dengue fever. Hepatitis E, cryptosporidiosis, leptospirosis, etc are caused by rats. Cockroaches are responsible for the spread of various food poisons like faecal allergens, E coli, etc. Besides food poisons, house flies spread typhoid, cholera, and dysentery.
Pests are the carriers of viruses and diseases. The risk of diseases cannot be reduced without proper pest control. Pests are not only hazardous to the people but it is also costly to recover from it. For example, Aedes mosquitoes spread dengue fever. These mosquitoes breed in still water. They have the potential to develop fatal dengue hemorrhagic fever. They also cause shock syndrome as well. A proper pest control service is essential for avoiding all these problems.
Most Singaporeans believe that pest control is limited to a piece of mosquito coil or a spray of Baygon. This may be useful for controlling occasional unsuspecting pests. However, over use of Baygon may lead to serious health problems. Inhaling of such pesticides can also cause serious health problems such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease in the long run. Release of these types of pesticides also destroys environment and its ozone layer.
