The professional pest control industry, an essential service, is responsible for the protection of public health, food and property as declared by the US Department of Health, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and US Department of Agriculture. 

Pest control plays a vital role in public health and is an essential layer of protection for our nation’s food supply. Various pests spread diseases such as salmonellosis, hantavirus, West Nile, Lyme disease and encephalitis; allergens spread by rodents and roaches trigger asthma attacks in children, insect bites send half a million people to emergency rooms each year and bed bugs can cause allergic reactions. 855Bugs will continue to work in any way we can to help ensure that the resources of our medical professionals can be directed to those impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak. We are trained and certified pest control professionals in the use of personal protective equipment and will work within safety parameters to continue protecting our community. 

As a community, we cannot afford to lapse in our protection against pests that cause disease and threaten our food supply. 855Bugs will work tirelessly to protect our medical facilities, nursing homes, food production facilities and warehouses, as well as your homes and the businesses that are working to keep our communities stocked with essential supplies. We urge you to follow the advice of our government officials and to heed the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control. 855Bugs lives here, works here, and stands ready to protect your home and business during this crisis. We encourage you to reach out if you are in need of pest prevention and control during the coming weeks, and we will be here for you as a business and as fellow Texans.
