Nothing beats having breakfast while having an unobstructed view of your garden, with the birds a-chirping and the flowers a-bloom while a gentle breeze caresses your cheeks.
However, by opening your windows, you allow not only sunshine and the wind to enter your home. As you leave your windows open, you are virtually sending out an invitation to insects and bugs to come inside your home.
Consider the facts: Humans have to peacefully co-exist with other creatures. However, this does not mean that you or your family members have to suffer the hazards and risks associated with common pests.
Your homes mortal enemy, the fly
The common house fly and mosquito has been the bane of humans since time immemorial. Experts estimates that for every fly that is seen, there are 19 others lurking, hidden from plain view. Furthermore, a fly, on average, harbours 33 million microorganisms in its gut and roughly half a billion microorganisms on its body and legs. Flies have been associated with more than 100 pathogens like Salmonella, Staphylococcus, E. Coli and Shigella. In turn, these pathogens cause diseases like polio, diarrhoea, typhoid fever, cholera, hepatitis and more. Now, consider the fact that flies have only two wings. This means that they have to land often: on plates, on utensils and other things that you and your child come into regular contact with.
Don’t forget the harmful insects as well
Also, consider other insects like wasps and bees that can thrive in your garden. While these insects are welcome guests in your garden because they enable your plants and flowers to flourish, inside the home, they can cause painful — and in some cases, fatal — stings.
