Protect your family against insect-borne illnesses

OCTOBER 27, 2022

No pest or insect should be allowed to feel at home and linger in any household.


It is every parent’s intrinsic objective to create a haven for their families and make their homes a safe place and a worry-free environment.  For mothers and homemakers, particularly, protecting their children at all costs is always top priority, whether it is from any peril outside their homes, or against the stealthy threats such as pests or insects crawling or flying inside the house.  Pests such as roaches, flies, and mosquitoes are more than just nuisances that annoy us or make us scream.  They are disease vectors that pose hazardous health risks, and which are oftentimes serious or even fatal, especially when not managed or mitigated.  

These pests or insects, present in a lot of households, can carry harmful bacteria and viruses.  Several infectious diseases one could possibly acquire from them include Dengue, a mosquito-borne viral infection causing a severe flu-like illness and sometimes causing a potentially lethal complication.  This illness causes flu-like symptoms that could last from two to seven days, which happens after an incubation period of four to 10 days after the bite of the infected mosquito. Other symptoms include high fever (of up to 40°C) with headaches, nausea, swollen glands, joint, bone, or muscle pains, and skin rashes.  The World Health Organization (WHO) reports an increase in the incidence of dengue 30-fold over the past few years, putting almost half of the world’s population at risk.

And that’s from mosquitoes alone.  Other household pests such as cockroaches, for instance, are not only gross and scary when they run across the room or hover above our heads.  These nasty bugs carry bacteria that can result in health concerns such as gastroenteritis, dysentery, roundworm, tapeworm, and fungus.  Mosquitoes, on the other hand, are more than their irritating buzz sounds, as their bite will not only give us itchy, red welts, but they are also popular carriers of a host of illnesses such as Dengue fever, and malaria.  Even the common household fly carries pathogens that could cause E. coli, and typhoid fever, and is able to transmit skin and eye infections, allergic reactions, poliomyelitis, dysentery, diarrhea, and cholera, to name a few.  

These insects can spread illnesses, especially when they infect food and water sources in the household.  Our family, particularly young children whose immune systems are still developing (plus their innate inquisitiveness in exploring their surroundings) can be the easy preys of these vectors, making them the most vulnerable to these dangerous diseases.  Parents know the importance of pest-proofing one’s home to prevent, destroy, and repel any household insects and protect the health of the whole family, especially the children who are at high risk. 

The good news is, there is a new Baygon Shield Defense Multi-Insect Killer—a refreshed version of the most sought after Baygon Odorless—now made better and stronger, guaranteed to provide parents with the right protection for their familiesIt delivers 100% knockdown promise, and kills mosquitoes in seconds, as provides fast-killing power against flying and crawling insects found in and around the household.

No pest or insect should be allowed to feel at home and linger in any household, thus long-term prevention of insect-borne diseases is also crucial.  Maintaining the sanitation and cleanliness of your surroundings, removing the filthy corners and breeding grounds of these pests that are typically attracted to moist organic matter (such as an open garbage to both lay their eggs and eat) should be a habit as these creatures pick up germs which they will then redeposit to either your food, or even your skin. It is imperative that trash cans are securely covered, and garbage bags are sealed, and taken out regularly.  Food should be either covered or kept in impenetrable containers, as not to entice flies and roaches. As simple as closing all doors or windows can prevent them from entering your household. Water containers should also be covered, while stagnant water from your backyard and inside the house should be discarded to reduce the mosquitoes that could cause dengue. As for roaches, practical daily habits such as removing spilled or exposed food from the floor, not leaving dirty dishes in the sink, doing away with unused boxed or damp newspapers, and keeping storage areas of the house dry, are surefire ways to eradicate their sustenance and hiding places.
