People in Phoenix, Arizona enjoy sunny, dry weather year round – unfortunately so do a lot of pests, and we encounter a variety of bugs and other creepy crawlies that not a lot of other people living in other states experience. As such, it’s not at all surprising that pest control companies in Phoenix, Arizona are much needed by people all over the state.

After all, the quality of life we have today can be attributed to 3 things: better medicine, better sanitation, and yes, better pest control.

Spiders and scorpions are two of the most fearsome pests that plague residential and commercial properties in AZ, and one of the most damaging pests of all – termites – are also quite common as the state sits on top of one of the most active subterranean termite belts in the country.

While pests are a part of everyday life in almost all households across the country (and the world), sometimes they’re more than just a nuisance and pose a real danger, whether that’s by destroying property or by spreading diseases.

In cases where a pest is only a nuisance, their numbers can grow to such an extent that they disrupt our daily activities. They may also attract other unwanted pests into your home since they serve as a food source.

In more urgent cases such as a termite infestation, you’d be left with hundreds if not thousands of dollars’ worth of property damage. 

Rats and mice are known to spread diseases, and you may be surprised to know that rats bite more than 40,000 people each year – rat bite fever, salmonella, and leptospirosis are just some of the diseases they leave people with, either by direct contact or by exposure to their urine and feces. Rats also love chewing through wiring, leaving you with electrical issues or worse, a fire.

You may be surprised that a lot of commercial spaces forego pest control services especially if they are small businesses. But when these pests are left unchecked and the few employees there are no longer able to deal with them, the business owner is left with more problems than if they’d just allocated the budget for proper pest control in the first place.

What do pest control workers do?

Pest control workers are equipped with an arsenal of pest management techniques to locate, identify, and exterminate or remove unwanted pests.

A pest by definition is a destructive insect or other animal that attacks food, crops, livestock, etc. and common indoor pests for both commercial and residential properties include rats, mice, cockroaches, ants, termites, and bedbugs.

A pest control worker would have the expertise and access to tools needed to eliminate a pest problem as effectively and safely as possible. They’ll also be able to work with the property owner in designing and/or implementing pest control strategies.

Most pest control companies now go beyond mere pest extermination and include proper sanitation and property exclusion for integrated pest management. That is, proper sanitation goes a long way to warding off pests. If there are no readily available food sources for pests – such as dirty dishes left in the sink overnight for cockroaches, or open trash receptacles for rats to go through – then your property becomes significantly less attractive for them. And property exclusion means preventing future infestations by making sure pests can’t enter in the first place. That includes measures such as sealing cracks and crevices where pests can squeeze their way through.

What do pest control workers need?

Of course, because of the nature of the job, pest control workers must be in good health. They must be able to withstand working in very uncomfortable conditions in the heat or cold, and be physically fit enough to crawl in tight spaces.

Because pests and pest control methods change, pest workers also often attend continuing education on pest management.

Last but not the least, pest control workers must be licensed. They are educated in pesticide safety and use. They undergo training and pass an examination. Requirements vary by state, but generally entry level pest workers need to have a high school diploma or equivalent and pass a background check as well as other additional requirements for that state.

So if you have a pest problem you need help dealing with, get in touch with pest control companies in Phoenix, AZ for professional assistance.

Haraka Haraka app to link customers with service providers

Published

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
