Pollen, Pets, Bees & Cockroaches?
You are probably already familiar with the most common allergies that affect people in Las Vegas. Seasonal allergies caused by pollen and plants are widespread. People can also be allergic to pets, such as dogs and cats, as well as outdoor stinging insects such as bees and wasps.
Did you ever stop to think that you might be allergic to certain household pests too? These are the critters most people would never willingly touch, such as cockroaches. Cockroach saliva, feces, and body parts can all spread proteins that become airborne and breathed in.
This nasty debris can cause allergic reactions in a surprisingly large portion of the population – especially in people with asthma.
Pests That Cause Allergic Reactions
Roaches aren’t the only culprits. If present in your Las Vegas home, many other household pests can trigger an annoying, and sometimes dangerous, allergic reaction in you or any sensitive family member.
- Mice, Rats & Other Rodents
- Dust Mites
- Certain Spiders
Do You Have A Pest Allergy?
Many allergies involve the same symptoms. The best way to determine the cause of your symptoms is to undergo testing with an allergist. Remember, even if you have tested negative for specific pest allergies in the past, you can develop new allergies at any time.
If you have one or more of the following symptoms, household pests could be the cause.
- Runny Or Stuffy Nose
- Watery, Red Or Itchy Eyes
- Skin Rashes
- Itchy Throat, Mouth Or Nose
Signs Of A Hidden Infestation
Allergic or not, you still don’t want pests in your home. Mice, rats, and cockroaches are good at hiding. It’s best to have a professional regularly check for signs of an infestation. These can include small droppings, unusual smells, gnawing marks on furniture or fabric, the buildup of dirt, and maybe even strange sounds in your cabinets or walls.
For A Healthier Home – Prevention Is Key
Keeping your house clean is an obvious first step to avoiding an allergy-inducing pest infestation. Still, bugs and rodents can find their way into even the best-kept homes. There are some simple additional steps you can take to prevent pests from entering your home and possibly triggering at an attack.
Don’t leave doors and windows wide open. Make sure your door and window screens, as well as door sweeps, are correctly fitted and in good condition. You should regularly check for cracks and gaps on walls and floors, and seal problem areas with an appropriate caulk. Use trash cans with well-fitted lids and seal garbage bags when you take them out.
