Instead of calling your werewolf best friend to protect you, there are tons of pest control in the Philippines that will help you fend them off. But before you call them up, check out this list of blood sucking pests to watch out for:
“Don’t let the bedbugs bite!” This common saying that people tell us before going to our beds has gotten us cringing right? More so because bedbugs actually exist and want nothing more than to sink their teeth on your skin and suck your blood. They are even revered as the “perfect parasite” because these tiny insects feed at night, often while their victim is asleep, and their bites are painless due to their anesthetizing agent. It’s not until the morning when you notice the itchy welt on your skin! Fortunately, bedbugs don’t transmit diseases but they can be hard to eliminate so better find a good pest control service shop to help you.
If you think Fido’s the only one bothered by these pests then think again. Fleas are deadly insects that love to suck blood from their hosts. They even went down in history by becoming the cause of the deadly bubonic plague that killed a quarter of Europe’s population during the Middle Ages. It happened because when infected rats began to die off, fleas then turned to humans for blood, then spread the disease in the process.
One of the more popular bloodsuckers in the industry, mosquitoes is everyone’s nightmare. These flying insects are the biggest nuisances to the society. Mosquitos have a really bad rep already by being the cause of many deadly diseases and the most annoying thing on the face of the earth.
