Pest Control vs Climate Change: What to do When Pests Invade Your Home


“We must reverse the nefarious consequences of global warming, which is a powerful threat to our planet and humanity.” – José Condugua António Pacheco, the foreign minister of Mozambique.


Climate change and its associated severe weather events are causing untold damage to the world’s ecosystems. The Nasa website echoes this fact in the published article titled “The Effects of Climate Change,” with the following statement: “Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment.”


Climate change and its impact on the natural ecosystem


Greenhouse gasses created primarily by burning fossil fuels have contributed to an increase in the world’s surface temperature, especially the sea temperatures. This, in turn, has led to hotter summers and warmer winters. Glaciers and sea ice are melting in the far northern and southern parts of the world.


Currently, rampant, out of control fires are burning in Australia caused by record-high summer temperatures combined with extremely dry conditions. These fires are burning so hot and fast that they have created a mini-climate system in the development of Pyrocumulonimbus, or dry thunderstorms with severe lightning strikes that start fires in new areas.


Additionally, these pyroCbs events have allowed the bushfire smoke to get into the stratosphere. Consequently, this smoke has drifted over 1000km to New Zealand, where it is harming the air quality.


Not only are these fires killing pests like rats, mice, spiders, scorpions, ants, and termites would play a vital role in the natural ecosystem, they are also driving them into human settlements where they are safe from the fires.


Unfortunately, once these creatures move into agricultural and residential areas, they become pests and need to be dealt with.


Removing and preventing pests from invading your living space


Therefore, the question that begs is, what do you do when a pest infestation like ants, termites, scorpions, or spiders moves into your living space?


The answer to this question is multifaceted; therefore, let’s look at a couple of ways you can ensure that these infestations are removed, and they do not return.


Consult with a pest removals specialist

The best way to remove and prevent pest infestations is to consult with a company that specializes in pest control in Boise, ID. Not only will they come and eliminate the outbreaks, but they will also give you advice on how to prevent the pests from returning.


Keep your home neat, clean, and tidy

Pests like rodents are attracted to rubbish lying around as well as dirty kitchens and bathrooms. Therefore, it is vital to keep your home and yard clean and tidy. Pick up all trash, bin it, throw away rotten food, and wash dirty dishes, clothes, and make sure bathrooms are cleaned.


Tidy up garden refuse

Garden refuse like fallen tree branches and leaves, grass cuttings, and weeds and plant clippings should be picked up and disposed of or chopped up and added to a compost bin. Not only will this prevent the bushfires from encroaching on your yard and house, but it will also stop pests from moving into your yard. They like hiding in the piles of garden refuse left lying around.
