- Diwali is quickly approaching. Before every Diwali, we frequently witness people getting their homes cleaned and pest controlled. Sometimes, we ponder, “Why?”
During this festive season, people visit one another’s houses in India. Nobody would want to visit a neighbor’s home that was infested with bed bugs or spiders. Nothing is more terrifying than entering a restroom and seeing a cockroach or lizard looking at you. Consider that you are on a friend’s couch, feeling as though a mouse has just walked over your foot and is hiding directly beneath the sofa. Even drinking tea quietly while interacting normally is impossible. Or picture a wooden floor that has been partially chewed by termites making a creaking sound as you pass across. We haven’t yet discovered a compelling reason why it must always happen before Diwali and not other holidays. For more information about termite removal, visit our website today.
Soon after the monsoon season is over, people celebrate Diwali. The monsoon season brings with it a lot of enjoyment and cool weather, but it also brings a lot of bacteria, insects, and diseases. Large-scale preparations of delicacies are made during Diwali as well, which attracts a lot of bugs. While humans celebrate it as a “Festival,” bugs celebrate it as a “Pestival.” Therefore, all of the health dangers that the monsoon season brings are really eliminated by our time-honored practises of meticulous pest control and house cleaning.
When I tell people that pest control and cleaning have been customs since ancient times, they are frequently startled. Are you serious, they enquire? I can understand cleaning, but how on earth did people in the past obtain pest control services? Amazingly, every Hindu religion has a sound foundation in logic and science.
Well! The use of a thin paste formed of cow dung, Gangajal, clay, and cow urine as a disinfectant and “Environment Friendly Pesticide” dates back to ancient India. The fact that the cow dung contains bacteriophage, a virus that attacks and replicates within bacteria, made this a fairly scientific method of pest control. Numerous reputable international organisations, including FAO, have acknowledged the traditional Indian practise. You may easily locate evidence by searching on Google and Wikipedia.
How should pest control be done?
Pest control ensures that all of the pathogens and infestations brought by the monsoons are eliminated. Cleaning, painting, and polishing help to make sure there are no cracks or crevices on the wall or in the furniture that would allow them to breed, harbour, and grow more.
1. What if pest control services were only completed after cleaning?
To effectively combat pests, you need a lot of resources, experience, and trained minds. You probably already know that pests are intelligent, cunning, and sophisticated. Even if you physically clean the filth, pests will still find hiding places in cracks and crevices. The following day, you will discover their hair, oil, droppings, etc. once more. Thus, relying just on cleaning and avoiding pest control would be disastrous.
2. What if the cleaning is finished but the pest control is not?
Professional cleaning involves not only dust removal but also removal of grease and slime material, food remnants, bug droppings, clogged drains, etc. It’s crucial that pests can’t access food and water. In reality, pests don’t like clean environments. Nobody wants to visit an unpleasant environment, whether they are humans or pests. They would not want to stay in such a place if they cannot find an entrance door, food, or shelter. A unfavourable environment makes it impossible for pests to reproduce further.
