We often assume that our homes are safe from pests. Hence, we would only choose to have our homes professionally treated when they are critically infested.

Pests are often hidden and are able to multiply quickly. Therefore, as more time elapses before treatment, it becomes more difficult to eliminate the problem. Worse, they may threaten your family’s well-being.

For instance, the small house fly can cause substantial harm.

“A fly feeds by using its mouth. It excretes digestive fluids to dissolve whatever it wants to consume as food, including food waste and faeces, into liquid before ingesting it. When a fly lands on food, it spreads harmful bacteria with its filthy legs and body,” Rentokil Initial Malaysia managing director Carol Lam and technical director Juliana Soo tell TheEdgeProperty.com.
