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, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the US Department of Agriculture.  

Pest control is essential

Pest control plays a vital role in public health and is an essential layer of protection for our nation’s food supply. 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 annually and bed bugs can cause allergic reactions. 855Bugs will continue to help ensure medical resources are directed to those impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak.

We are trained

The 855Bugs team is trained and certified in the use of personal protective equipment. We will work within safety parameters to continue protecting our community. 

Essential service that protects the community

Our community cannot afford to lapse in protection against pests that cause disease and threaten our food supply. 855Bugs will work to protect medical facilities, nursing homes, food production facilities, warehouses, homes, and businesses that keep our communities stocked with essential supplies. Follow the advice of our government officials and heed the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control. We stand ready to protect your home and business during this crisis. 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. For more information, please visit www.855bugs.com, or schedule an appointment online today.
