What Are The Most Common Household Pests in Kenya?
Ants, How Do They Cause Damages?
Usually we see ants marching at our home across the kitchen counter or window frames, etc. but, this is not the scene we often see in all seasons. However, that doesn’t mean that the ants are not nearby. Ants are very successful at overwintering in outdoors, including your own yards. Actually, during the fall months, ants indulge in vast amount of foods with the goal of putting on fat so that they can survive for weeks without eating. When the winter arrives their body temperature as well as the productivity decreases, so they seal up their colony and go down in the deep soil until the spring season comes. And again they are ready to invade the next backyard with full of energy when the temperature rises.
Bedbugs, What Are Bedbugs & Their Nature?
One thing that you people should know about bed bugs is that they can withstand temperature from nearly freezing to 50 degree Celsius, which makes controlling them extremely difficult for us. The bad news for us is that our homes provide them the perfect habitat to survive in all seasons. They live indoors that give them heat as well as food that they need to survive in winter and other seasons. As they get food source and warmth they need, they happily remain active in your house throughout the year. Even if they don’t get any food source then, also they can survive several months without eating.
Cockroaches, What Are Cockroaches & Survival Ways?
Cockroaches are one of the oldest insects in the world in fact, they are older than dinosaur. They are some of the most adaptable creatures in the world but, are the able to survive cold or just die in winters? Well, most species of cockroaches can survive year-round whereas some cockroaches like German cockroach prefers an indoor humid habitat close to food and moisture sources. They often make themselves quite comfortable in kitchen and bathroom in our house, especially during the winter months. On the hand, American cockroaches live outside in warmer climates and when the temperature increases they move into homes or larger commercial buildings.
Mosquitoes, How Do They Breed?
Mosquito bites is certain while spending time outdoors in the summer months. But, you will be surprised to know that mosquitoes don’t fall away in the cold winter months. Mosquitoes overwinter or hibernate in protected places like hollow logs, etc. When the temperature improves, the female mosquitoes awaken and seek blood source to feed and develop eggs.
Termites, What Is Their Nature & Damages?
What actually happens to termite during winter months is totally depends on the species of the termites and climate where they are living. In colder climates the subterranean termites will dig deeper into the soil just to stay warm. On the other hand, drywood termites will seek out dry wood for shelter. In spring time young male and female swarmers come out from their nests in order to search a new mate or new nest location, which often times inside our homes. This means termites can invade our home in this season. After spending their time under the soil or dry wood in the winter season, different species of termites can invade home. In warmer climates or heated homes, where the temperature can be controlled, termites can be active year-round.

Fumigation & Pest Control Services in Nairobi Kenya
Facility managers are often considered a jack of all trades, as they are responsible for maintaining the quality of a building and ensuring the safety of employees, patrons, and other occupants on a daily basis and all while adhering to budgetary restraints. This often results in pest control efforts being placed toward the bottom of the to-do list, done on a shoestring budget, or even forgotten altogether. However, given the considerable consequences of an infestation, facility managers must be prepared to take action at the first sign of a pest problem.
Once inside, pests pose serious health and safety threats with the potential to contaminate food, spread dangerous diseases, and cause extensive structural damage to a building. In order to mitigate these threats in an effective and timely manner, facility managers should work with a licensed pest management company to develop a comprehensive pest management program consisting of preventive treatments, monitoring, regular inspections, and a set of procedures should the facility face an infestation.
In an office environment, for instance, there may be a large number of people in the building for extended periods of time, which compromises facility access. When developing a pest management program, the schedules or office hours of occupants need to be taken into consideration. Even when offices are closed, there may be sensitive areas or areas with limited or no access, which can impact the type and success of pest services provided. It is important that these areas are identified and assessed to determine what risk exists if they are not serviced.
Retail establishments often have similar concerns in terms of operating hours and access. That said, there are differentiating factors with retail, such as where products are made, stored, and transported from; amount of foot traffic through the building; and rate of product turnover.
As retail products may be delivered and transported from a variety of locations, the originating location for all products should be noted as it can factor into the types of pests that may threaten retail facilities. Foot traffic is also a huge concern mainly for the transfer of hitchhiking pests, such as bed bugs. In fact, in the last few years, major retailers have experienced bed bug infestations, driving them into the national media and social media spotlight while also forcing them to close their doors temporarily to treat these problems.
MOST PROBLEMATIC PESTS
Oftentimes, the prevalence of pests in facilities will depend on various factors, including the location and condition of the building. That said there are a handful of pests known for being frequent trespassers.
These insects often enter buildings in search of shelter or food sources, especially sweets and protein. They are considered social insects, meaning that they live in large colonies of thousands or more. Unfortunately, if one ant is spotted in a facility, there are likely many more within close proximity, which makes this structural pest one of the most difficult to control. It is important to pay attention to general sanitation, as dirty food preparation areas and undisposed garbage can attract ants.
Like ants, if one cockroach is found in a facility there are likely more nearby. These pests are good travelers and often find their way into commercial structures via shipments containing cardboard boxes. Not only are cockroaches considered a nuisance, but they are also a health and safety concern for facility managers. In fact, cockroaches are capable of spreading nearly 33 different kinds of bacteria, such as Salmonella and E. coli by picking up the germs on the spines of their legs and bodies and transporting them onto food or work surfaces. They are also known to cause allergic reactions and trigger exacerbated asthma symptoms through the allergens introduced in their saliva, droppings, and decomposing bodies. The best advice for cockroach control is practicing good sanitation indoors by vacuuming and keeping food preparation areas clean.
These pests have made a significant resurgence in recent years and continue to cause problems for facility managers and homeowners alike. Although bed bugs are typically thought to be a household pest, they can hitchhike to commercial facilities on clothes and personal items. A 2015 survey conducted by the Kenya reaseachers and PCPB and Kephis found 45% of respondents had treated for bed bugs in office buildings in the prior year, while 20% treated infestations in retail stores. Both of these totals are up from the group’s 2013 survey.
There are various steps that facility managers can, and should, take to prevent bringing bed bugs into their buildings from eliminating clutter in storage areas to inspecting new inventory while unpacking it. It’s also crucial to have a policy in place for employees who may suspect a bed bug infestation at home. A licensed pest management professional can help formulate a policy that fits the specific needs of the facility and its employees.
These are a real annoyance as they freely buzz around facilities, but the truth is that they pose a bigger health threat. Flies spread germs wherever they land—whether it be on a desk or food preparation source like a countertop. They are responsible for contaminating food and transferring more than 100 pathogens, including Salmonella and tuberculosis. Fly control is challenging as their larval development site must be located and eliminated. In addition to working with a pest management professional, facility managers should ensure trash is removed frequently and food areas, such as break rooms and cafeterias, are free of food debris.
These pests, such as mice and rats, are capable of entering buildings through openings the size of a dime or quarter depending on the species. Once inside, they can destroy materials and cause structural damage by gnawing through wall boards, wood, plaster, and electrical wiring.
Additionally, rodents defecate frequently, and their droppings are a common cause of allergic reactions in humans. Facility managers should regularly inspect buildings for rodent droppings, paying attention to undisturbed areas such as cafeteria pantries and storage closets.
POINTS OF ENTRY
It is also important to recognize and identify the various points of entry that provide pests access into buildings throughout the year. Consider the following pest hot spots around a facility.
Doorways. While doorways may be considered obvious entry points, these are an essential aspect of pest management. Not only are doorways used as the main entry for buildings, but they might also be propped open during deliveries, periods of heavy traffic, to increase airflow inside the structure, or to accommodate employee smoke breaks.
To assist in the prevention of pests using doorways as an entry point, air curtains can be installed above doors to deter flying pests, and door sweeps can be used to limit the gap between the floor and the bottom of a door. Facility managers should also consider working with a pest management professional to seal any cracks or crevices on the outside of the facility that can serve as entry points.
Pipework. Oftentimes, plumbing, duct work, and electrical chases are possible entry points for pests because they require holes or openings in order to function properly. These open areas can provide a pathway for pests to not only travel indoors, but also move from one area of the building to another. This means that it may be necessary to investigate the areas above and below infestations to determine the entry point and spread.
In developing a pest management program, facility managers of larger high-rise buildings may want to obtain building plans that show the installation of pipework in the walls. Additionally, water and sewer lines, as well as floor drains, can be attractive to pests that need moisture for survival, like cockroaches and flies. This can occur in a small retail establishment with one bathroom or a high-rise office building with multiple restrooms. It is important to identify these areas with a higher risk.
Ceilings. Drop ceilings, while not considered to be an entry point, can be considered a pest hot spot as they provide unlimited movement for pests through the overhead area. Depending on the specific pest concern, these areas may need to be monitored and addressed. In addition to the space provided by drop ceilings, void spaces overall can provide significant harbourage or overwintering opportunities for pests.
Interior plants. Individual plants and plant scape like those found in larger retail malls can serve as ideal harborage sites for pests. In larger plant scape settings, which can include extensive beds and potential water features, there are a multitude of attractive conditions for pests to thrive. Additionally, if mall visitors dispose of food or drink in these spaces, those areas instantly become even more attractive to pests.
A common concern for smaller potted plants or large plantscapes is small flying insects, like fungus gnats, as the soil provides the ideal breeding grounds in both office and retail environments.
Personal space. Individuals can be a cause of many pest infestations and oftentimes personal desks or offices contain items that may be found in a residential home, including food, clothing, and medicine. These personal environments also create conditions that are attractive to pests.
Likewise, if there is a pest infestation in the home of an individual employee, the possibility exists for these pests to be transported into the workplace. Two common hitchhikers known to move from one location to another are German cockroaches and bed bugs.
Food service areas. Where there is food, moisture, and harborage, there is high potential for insect and rodent activity. Food service areas vary greatly, ranging from full commercial kitchens to small spaces with a refrigerator and microwave. In these areas, general sanitation and excess storage can be a concern as employees often leave behind items that can attract or harbor pests.
Public areas. Facility spaces such as entryways, public restrooms, elevators, and water fountains serve as hot spots that attract pests. Some of these areas require drainage, which may draw flies and cockroaches to the area due to excess moisture.
Grounds. The outdoor areas of buildings that contain standing water, such as ponds or a birdbath in a garden, may be a nice aesthetic, but these can also serve as unwanted potential breeding sites for pests. Other areas to consider addressing include storm and sewer grates, as well as trash collection areas.
While spotting a cockroach under the bathroom sink in a retail store or rodent droppings in the corner of an office may seem like minuscule issues, a full blown infestation can develop in the blink of an eye. By not having a proper pest management plan in place to address problems such as these, facility managers put their organizations and occupants at risk.
Why You Need Professional Pest Control Services
There are many benefits to seeking professional pest control services when you are facing an infestation in your home. These benefits go well beyond simply ridding your home and family of the nuisances of these pests and can actually help to keep you safe and healthy. Pest control is necessary in your home and around your property because infesting bugs or rodents can introduce disease, bite or injure your family and pets, put your food at risk through contamination or compromise the structural integrity of your house. When you choose to use professional pest control services, you are choosing to keep your family and your home safe, healthy and free of any potential dangers that these pests can potentially pose to your loved ones.
5 Reasons Why Professional Pest Control Services Are Important
A Do-It-yourself Approach To Pest Control Is Not Always Enough
There are many products available to consumers that will claim to rid your home of your pest infestation woes. Although these products can appear to be effective initially, they will not eliminate your pest infestation for good. Many of these treatments are not able to get to the root of your pest problems and only have surface level effectiveness when it comes to controlling infesting insects or rodents. When you purchase a pest control product at the store, these products will usually only get rid of the infesting pests that you see scurrying about in your home and on your property. The source of most infestations, whether a rats nest or a termite colony, are usually out of sight and are not able to be reached by over the counter pest control products. This is why it is crucial to rely on professional pest control services, as your treating technician will take an even deeper dive into finding and eliminating the source of the infesting pest. To make sure you catch your infestation early before it becomes bigger and more difficult to control, contact pest control services upon the first sight of insects, rodents, wasps and other pests that might make themselves comfortable in your home.
Infesting Pests Can Create Health Problems For You and Your Family
According to public health officials, quality pest control attributes to the overall clean quality of living that Americans enjoy each and every day. This is because without professional pest control services, the spread of disease by infesting pests would be much greater. Some of the pests that most commonly invade our homes including, ticks, rodents and mosquitos, are capable of carrying diseases or viruses that can contribute to poor health for homeowners. The rodents that so often infest our homes, including mice and rats, can carry Hantavirus which may be life threatening to humans, causing kidney damage or failure. Although not as immediately dangerous as hantavirus, ticks can infect humans with Lyme disease which causes flu-like symptoms and in some cases, can be fatal if not promptly treated with antibiotics. Bats are now known to cause coronavirus with the deadly disease of COVID-19. Mosquitos, which are known to cause more human deaths than any animal in the world, can transfer dangerous illnesses including Zika, malaria and West Nile Virus.
Pest infestations can be especially dangerous to those who live with asthma or allergies. Some pests, including rodents and roaches, have a protein in their droppings which is known to cause allergic reactions in vulnerable individuals which can lead to dangerous asthma attacks and respiratory issues. Wasps are also known to cause allergic reactions in some people through the venom they inject as they sting. Even if you or anyone in your family are not asthmatic or allergic, exposure to infesting insects and especially their droppings can have a negative impact on your lungs. Because it is not possible to know whether or not a pest is carrying a disease, it is always the best idea to be overly cautious and hire professional pest control services to effectively take care of your infestation.
Pests Can Cause Damages to Your Property and Belongings
Different types of pest infestations pose unique risks to your property and belongings. Termites alone cause five billion dollars in damages to properties in the United States each and every year. If you are facing a termite infestation, your belongings and the structural integrity of your home are absolutely compromised as these insects eat away at wooden furniture, structural timbers, hardwood floors and any other wood source that supports your home. Other insects prefer to feed on fibers putting upholstered sofas, clothing, towels and blankets at risk for damage. Additionally, a rodent infestation can result in damages to electrical wiring and contamination of the insulation in your home. Regardless of the type of pest infection your family is facing, it is important to seek professional pest control services to ensure the safety and integrity or your property, home and belongings.
Pests Can Contaminate The Food Your Family Eats
Pest control is especially necessary when considering all of the ways in which food can face contamination due to infesting pests. According to estimates made by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 48 million Americans become sick, 128,000 hospitalized and 3,000 die every year from food poisoning. During production, food may be contaminated in many different ways, however, one contaminating factor is the presence of pests that are carrying dangerous diseases in food facilities. These statistic speak to how dangerous pests can be when it comes to the food we eat, and even the food you have in your home. Uncontaminated foods in your home can become contaminated when infesting pests make a meal out of your family’s food supply. When cockroaches dig into your food, they contaminate it with their saliva and waste. These secretions contain bacteria that can cause diarrhea, food poisoning and Staph infections in humans. Rodents may also contaminate the food you eat through their feces, while houseflies can cause food poisoning and dysentery.
There are a few steps you can take to help reduce your chances of food contamination in your home. These include storing flour, sugar and similar ingredients in bags or containers that are tightly sealed, storing your garbage cans outside, cleaning up food particles or spills immediately and washing your dishes after your meal instead of letting dirty dishes pile up in your sink. Failing to take these steps will give outside pests a reason to join you and your family indoors as they search for food.
Pest Control Services Help Create A Stress Free Home Environment
It is hard to be at peace in a home that is constantly plagued by pests. When you rely on professional pest control services to take care of your infestation, you are allowing your family to live in a stress and pest free environment. The constant worry of pests in your home is not only annoying, but can cause you to worry about potential diseases and dangers that these pests may pose to your family. Create a happy and healthy home for you and your loved ones by leaving pest control to the professionals.
Types of Pest Infestations That Require Professional Pest Control Services
There are many types of pests that infest our homes, with some of these pest requiring more immediate pest control than others. When deciding whether or not you need professional pest control services, consider the type of infestation you are facing and how these pests might negatively impact you and your family. Although you may not need to seek pest control for all types of pests, there are a few that will usually require pest control services to keep your family safe and your home comfortable. Read below to learn more about the types of infestations which necessitate professional intervention.
Insects and Spiders
It is true that insects and spiders belong outside and not in your home. If you notice the odd insect or spider indoors, chances are you will not need to seek pest control services. However, if you find that you are noticing a wealth of insects and arachnids in your home, it may be time to reach out to the professionals to take care of your budding infestation. It is important to keep a bug and spider infestation from spreading, as these pests can carry a variety of diseases and bacteria, including E. Coli and salmonella, which can make you and your family sick. Additionally, insect carcasses and droppings can create unhealthy conditions inside of your home which can especially impact those who live with respiratory conditions, including asthma.
Rodents can pose real health and safety risks to you, your family and your pets, as they carry and spread disease through fleas, ticks or mites. These health risks make pest control services for rats and mice infestations extremely necessary. Unfortunately, infesting rats and rodents that were nesting elsewhere have now moved up into the attics of homes in an attempt to avoid the flooding. This means that it’s important for us to know their options for rodent pest control services in the home and especially during the winter months when these rodents are looking for a warm place to take shelter from cold weather.
While rodents and insects are known to pose health threats through bacteria and viruses, wasps are better known for their aggression and the harmful side effects that may happen as the result of a wasp sting. For those with allergies or who are more sensitive to wasp venom, stings may be life-threatening. This is why it is important to seek professional pest control services at the sign of a wasp infestation on your property.
Although not necessarily damaging to your family’s health, termites are perhaps the most destructive of all pests that may infest your home. Termites will very literally eat your home from the inside out, causing incredible damage to your home which requires costly repair. These pests work very quickly and can cause a significant amount of destruction in a very short period of time making termite control an absolute necessity at the first sign of infestation. Termite colonies are usually hidden away underground meaning that if you try to address the infestation yourself, you may not be able to reach the source of the infestation. Professional pest control services are required to effectively rid your home or termites and to wipe out the active colony.
