Hulett Environmental Services shares tips on how to keep pests from disrupting Summer picnics or BBQs

Hulett Environmental Services, an organization committed to the protection of public health, food and property from household pests, offers these tips to help pests from ruining your summer gathering:

  • Prior to the party, check screen doors and repair any holes.
  • Remove sources of standing water in your yard, including birdbaths, wading pools or garden ponds.
  • Have insect repellant containing an EPA-registered active ingredient like DEET or Picaridin available for you and your guests.
  • Adorn your deck or patio with citronella candles that can help minimize the presence of mosquitoes.
  • With guests coming in and out of your house, make sure the doors close behind them.
  • Plan to serve food and beverages indoors, and reserve outdoor space for eating and entertaining.
  • Keep food sealed in containers whenever possible, and wipe tabletops frequently.
  • Clean trash, spills and crumbs immediately from tables and other surfaces.
  • Bring utensils and dishware indoors shortly after the meal.
  • Rinse all beverage bottles and cans, and dispose of them in tightly closed garbage containers.

If pests become intolerable, you may have a larger problem and need professional assistance. Sometimes, pest pressure can get out of hand. For example, if homeowners notice large mounds of ants or stinging insect nests around the property, they’ll want to contact a professional to help them safely remove these infestations as they can be a threat to our safety.

New Survey Shows Allergists Agree A Pest-Free Home Is Important In Preventing Asthma And Allergy Symptoms

More than nine out of ten allergists surveyed (97 percent) believe a pest-free home is an important step in preventing asthma and allergy symptoms, according to a recent survey conducted by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) supported by a grant from the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). The survey was conducted among medical professionals at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) in March 2014 in San Diego, CA. The findings are being released today at the beginning of National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month to remind homeowners that many pest-related asthma and allergy triggers can be avoided by practicing simple prevention measures.

The study, which included nearly 500 allergists, was conducted to assess physicians’ views on pests and their recommendations to patients with sensitivities to pest allergens. Many common household pests, such as cockroaches and rodents, contain potent allergen proteins that can cause reactions and symptoms in certain asthma and allergy patients. According to AAFA, 63 percent of homes in America contain cockroaches and their particles – saliva, droppings and decomposing body parts – so it is recommended that homeowners take steps to rid their homes of these pests.

“The health threats posed by pests like cockroaches, rodents and stinging insects are serious but can be reduced by taking action against pest infestations,” said Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs, NPMA. “We’re encouraged to learn that the majority of allergists recommended that their patients with pest problems consult with a pest professional to help eliminate pest allergens in the home.”

“Allergies are a chronic disease of the immune system, and people with a cockroach allergy should take steps to reduce their exposure to cockroach allergen,” said Mike Tringale, Senior Vice President of AAFA. “We encourage patients with these types of sensitivities to seek advice from their doctors on the best plan for treatment and prevention.”

Asthmatic adults and children exposed to cockroach allergens experience symptoms when their airways tighten, inflame, or fill with mucus. Dr. Jorge Parada, MD, medical spokesperson for the NPMA explains, “Common asthma symptoms include coughing, especially at night, wheezing, chest tightness or pressure, and shortness of breath.” He also adds, “Controlling allergies and asthma is a two-fold process, so it’s important for a person suffering from these symptoms to see his or her doctor and contact a qualified pest professional to recommend a course of action to eliminate the problem.”

The AAFA survey of allergists also revealed the following:

  • Nearly 8 out of 10 allergists surveyed (76 percent) say, aside from dust mites, cockroaches are the most problematic household pest for patients suffering from asthma or allergies. More than half of allergists surveyed (57 percent) rank rodents as the second most problematic, and nearly two-thirds (63 percent) rank stinging insects as third.
  • More than 9 out of 10 allergists surveyed (95 percent) regularly advise their patients to reduce their exposure to pest allergens in their homes.
  • 9 out of 10 allergists surveyed (90 percent) would recommend that a patient with a pest problem consult with a pest management professional.
  • When asked to provide open-ended comments about advice they give to patients who have a sensitivity to cockroach allergen, the most frequent advice cited by allergists surveyed was to contact or hire a pest management professional.
