Hello, everyone! After a storm or heavy rain, while we’re busy dealing with the cleanup and checking for any damages, there’s another concern that often goes unnoticed at first—pests. Yes, those unwelcome guests who thrive in the chaos left behind by climate events. Here in Chennai, where the weather can go from sunny to stormy in a blink, it’s essential to know which pests might pop up post-climate events and how to deal with them. Brought to you by Professional Pest Management And Allied Services Pvt. Ltd., let’s dive into what you can expect and how to keep these critters at bay.

Understanding the Pests Surge Post-Climate Events

  1. Mosquitoes: The Water-Lovers

First up are the mosquitoes, those buzzing little vampires that thrive in stagnant water left after heavy rains or floods. They’re not just annoying—their bites can spread diseases like dengue, chikungunya, and malaria, which are particularly prevalent in our region during the monsoon and post-monsoon seasons.

  1. Rodents: Seeking Shelter

Next, we have rodents. Rats and mice dislike the wet weather as much as any of us. They seek refuge from the floodwaters in the nearest dry place they can find, which unfortunately often ends up being our homes. Once inside, they can be difficult to evict, posing risks of disease and damage to property.

  1. Termites: The Silent Destroyers

Heavy rains can also disturb the colonies of termites, prompting them to relocate. If your home offers the wood they need for survival and the moisture they love, it can become the new hotspot for these destructive pests. Termites can silently eat away at the structural integrity of your home, causing extensive damage before you even realize they are there.

  1. Cockroaches: The Ultimate Survivors

Cockroaches are another pest that can increase in number after climate events. These critters can swim and hold their breath for up to 40 minutes, easily surviving floods. Like rodents, they seek dry shelter and often find it in our homes, bringing germs and bacteria along with them.

Preventive Measures and Solutions

Moisture Control

One of the key strategies in managing post-storm pest invasions is controlling moisture. Ensure your home is dry and well-ventilated to discourage pests from settling in.

Check for leaks: Inspect your roof, pipes, and walls for any damage that might allow water to enter and fix any issues promptly.

Use dehumidifiers: In particularly damp areas of your home, like basements, consider using dehumidifiers to reduce moisture.

Sanitation and Cleanlines

Keeping your home clean is more crucial than ever after a storm or flood.

Dispose of garbage regularly: Pests are attracted to trash and debris, so ensure your garbage is properly managed and disposed of.

Clear standing water: After any climate event, make it a priority to clear any stagnant water around your property to prevent mosquito breeding.

Seal Points of Entry

An effective way to keep pests out is to make sure they can’t get in.

Seal cracks and openings: Check doors, windows, and walls for any cracks that might serve as entry points for pests.

Install screens: Use screens on windows and vents to keep flying and crawling pests out.
