Hoarders and their serious health issues?

Frequently I get called in to consult on issues that deal with hoarding, considered a serious health risk to all involved.

Hoarders – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hoarding could have simply remained a symptom and been included under multiple disorders. However, treating the comorbid disorders in a patient often does not eliminate hoarding behaviors. Another significant factor in the disorder’s reclassification was the discovery that more people could be diagnosed with hoarding behaviors than could be diagnosed with OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder).

 

All sorts of items play into this, mice are often able to set up within the home, as well as insects. If animals are involved the hoarder may only think there are a few when in fact many more are present. In the pictures below there were over 150 cats in this house. The smell of feces and urine permeate the entire structure and had to be dealt with house wide as it had become part of the drywall and the cement within.

If you notice someone within your community please consider the impact on that person and seek help. There are numerous agencies within most communities that can assist.

Have you ever tried DIY for German Roaches?

The biggest issue I have with DIY (Do It Yourself) pest control is that most people don’t understand bugs. If you have the knowledge then you can deal with the pest. Same reason I don’t replace my own brakes on my vehicle. I don’t have a clue and frankly I don’t want to know. But let me tell you, I know bugs.

You know those cockroach stations that you just throw into the kitchen or bathroom cabinet, they might work if you get them close enough. But most people just toss them into the cabinet and that isn’t very helpful. Yes some roaches will find the stuff but if you place them near the source, it will work better.

Did you have any idea? Cockroaches may have personalities…

This article appears in the “Royal Society Publishing” “Group personality during collective decision-making: a multi-level approach.”

highlight that the individuals within groups exhibited consistent personality traits in their probability of sheltering and total time sheltered

Another good reason to hire a Pest Management Professional.

DIY pest control bug bombs increasing demand for fire services, authorities urge people to see expert help

This story is out of London but really fits with everyday life and Do It Yourself issues with Pest Control. These bug bombs have there place, primarily dealing with flying bugs. In my opinion, all they do is make the bugs go into their hiding places deeper and that makes it more difficult to really get them out.

BOOM!

 

Insects and other vermin consume food on the street

It turns out that millions of tiny bugs are consuming the equivalent of 60,000 hot dogs per year over a 150-block strip in Manhattan.

Just when you thought it was safe to go out into the streets of New York City – this amazing factoid “The bugs on a single NYC median can eat 14 pounds of food per year” Actually it is a good thing, if they didn’t eat all this stuff it might bring out more and possibly dangerous things like rodents.

My thoughts are just one rodent in the house is one to many. Wherever you live  there is probably a  Pest Management Professional
