Essential Services Continue at 855Bugs

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. In addition, 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 ensure our resources are directed to medical professionals and those impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak. We are trained and certified pest control professionals knowledgeable in the use of personal protective equipment and will continue to work within safety parameters that protect our community. 

855Bugs works tirelessly to protect our medical facilities, nursing homes, food production facilities and warehouses, as well as the homes and the businesses working to keep our communities stocked with essential supplies. We urge you to follow the advice of our government officials and heed the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control. 855Bugs lives and works here. We stand ready to protect your home and business during this crisis. We encourage you to reach out if you need pest prevention and control during the coming weeks, and we will be here for you as a business and as fellow Texans. 

Please visit www.855bugs.com or schedule an appointment online today for more information.
