The first step to protecting your home from pests is to know what they are. Pests are insects, rodents and other animals that invade homes and cause damage or spread diseases. There are more than 100 different types of pests in Norway, but only a few are common.
Rodents: Mice and rats cause damage by gnawing on wood or plastic surfaces and by spreading disease.
Ants: Ants can be found just about anywhere. They feed on plants, meats, fruits and sweets. They also spread diseases such as dysentery, malaria and typhoid fever.
Cockroaches: Cockroaches can carry bacteria that cause food poisoning and dysentery. They also carry germs that cause diarrhea and dysentery in people who eat their eggs or feces.
Spiders: Spiders build webs to catch insects for food; they don’t usually attack people unless they feel threatened by them. Spiders can crawl into bedding or clothing where they might bite if disturbed while sleeping. Bites usually aren’t serious but can be painful because of their size – some spiders have fangs longer than ⅛ inch (3 millimeters).
Pest control products
Pest control products are the most important part of pest control. They are used to exterminate pests and insects from homes, offices and other places.
There are many pest control products available in the market that you can choose from, but not all of them can be used for every kind of pest. Some products are only effective against certain pests, while others may be toxic for humans or pets. Here’s a brief guide on how to choose the right pest control product for your needs:
How do you know if a product is right for your home?
Before you buy any pest control product, make sure that it is labeled as safe for use around children and pets. You should also read the instructions carefully before using any insecticide or pesticide on yourself or others in your household. If you have any questions about whether a particular product is safe for use around people or animals, contact a professional pest control company, such as SkadedyrNorge.
What types of pesticides are available?
Insecticides are substances that kill insects such as cockroaches, ants and fleas. These chemicals can be used indoors and outdoors as long as they don’t get absorbed through the skin when handling them with bare hands or inhaling them through the nose or mouth during application.
