    1.    Great  Expert  Tips  From…     EMPIRE PEST CONTROL EMPIRE PEST CONTROL   EXPERT LOCAL PEST CONTROL IN LONDON     What  pests  can  cause  allergic  reactions?   From  UK  Based,  Local  London  Pest  Experts   Household  pests  are  really,  really  annoying.  But  if  your  one  of  the  thousands  of  people  who  suffer   from  allergies,  or  respiratory  problems,  pests  in  your  home  can  be  very  dangerous  to  your  health.   Pests  in  the  house  can  leave  allergens,  triggering  serious  asthma  attacks  and  skin  reactions,  such  as   rashes.     WHO  SUFFERS  FROM  ALLERGIES       •  Children  and  young  adults  are  more  likely  to  develop  allergies  when  they  have  regular  contact  with   some  household  pests.  The  more  contact  they  have,  the  higher  the  chance  that  they  will  suffer  an   allergic  reaction  at  some  point  in  your  life.  This  can  include  rashes,  and  serious  breathing  problems.       EMPIRE  PEST  CONTROL  LONDON  |  www.empirepestcontrol.co.uk  |  T:  0800  633  5220  or  0203  633  2143    

    2. SYMPTOMS       •  Symptoms  can  range  from  a  simple  runny  nose  and  a  small  rash  of  itchy  red  bumps,  to  life  threatening   reactions.  Some  of  us  can  go  into  anaphylactic  shock,  which  is  deadly.  So  it’s  really  vital  to  keep  pests  at   a  minimum  in  your  home  through  vigilant  pest  prevention  and  eradication.     WHICH  PESTS  ARE  MORE  COMMON     •  There  are  a  few  pests  that  are  more  common  than  others  when  it  comes  to  causing  allergic  reactions.   The  pests  listed  here  are  the  more  known  pests  that  can  cause  serious  reactions  for  us.  The  health   problems  they  can  cause  once  they  invade  your  home  are  also  included  for  you.     DUST  MITES     •  Once  dust  mites  are  in  your  home,  they  will  leave  droppings  and  shed  their  skin.  These  contain  a   particular  type  of  protein,  which  is  the  main  cause  of  the  problem  for  people  who  suffer  from  a  dust   mite  allergy.  Once  the  proteins  enter  your  body,  they  trigger  a  serious  reaction.     WHAT  HAPPENS  WHEN  YOUR  EXPOSED  TO  DUST  MITES     •  These  reactions  result  in  an  inflammation  in  the  nose,  lungs  and  eyes.  Exposure  to  dust  mites  will   make  these  symptoms  increase,  and  can  cause  long  lasting  damage  to  your  health.  Prolonged  allergic   reactions  from  dust  mites  in  the  lungs  can  cause  serious  breathing  problems  for  the  rest  of  your  life.     COCKROACHES     •  The  faeces,  saliva  and  dead  bodies  of  cockroaches  is  what  triggers  allergic  reactions  from  sufferers.   People  who  have  asthma  are  also  far  more  likely  to  have  a  symptom  increase.  They  can  also  suffer  from   itchy  skin  and  eyes.  They  may  also  experience  breathing  difficulties,  and  cockroaches  can  trigger  asthma   attacks.         EMPIRE  PEST  CONTROL  LONDON  |  www.empirepestcontrol.co.uk  |  T:  0800  633  5220  or  0203  633  2143    

    3. BEES       •  If  you  already  have  an  allergy  to  bee  stings,  it  is  life  threatening  if  you  are  stung.  People  who  suffer   from  these  allergies  always  carry  medication  with  them,  like  an  epi  pen.  Once  a  bee  has  stung  someone   who  is  allergic  to  it,  they  need  to  seek  immediate  medical  attention.     HOW  TO  AVOID  BEING  STUNG     •  If  you  have  an  allergy  to  bee  stings,  you  can  take  precautions  to  avoid  being  stung.  Brushing  them   gently  off  your  skin  instead  of  swatting  at  them  may  stop  them  from  stinging  you.  Doing  this  will  stop   them  from  feeling  so  threatened,  so  they  won’t  want  to  attack  and  sting.     PREVENTION  IS  KEY     •  Try  to  avoid  wearing  bright  colours  outside  in  the  summer,  and  using  strong  smelling  perfumes  too.   This  will  make  you  less  attractive  to  bees  and  wasps.  Lastly,  don’t  expose  your  bar  skin  if  possible  when   you  know  bees  will  be  outdoors.  This  is  obviously  more  common  in  the  summer  months.     WHAT  TO  DO  NEXT     •  There  are  plenty  of  treatments  available  for  allergies.  The  best  way  to  deal  with  symptoms  is  to   remove  the  problem  altogether.  If  you  know  you  have  a  pest  infestation,  call  in  the  professional  pest   controllers  right  away.  This  will  reduce  the  chances  of  having  any  type  of  reactions  to  pests.             EMPIRE  PEST  CONTROL  LONDON  |  www.empirepestcontrol.co.uk  |  T:  0800  633  5220  or  0203  633  2143
