Imagine London Without Pest Control

A world without pest control is hard to imagine. As funny as it may sound, humanity did, for many centuries, live without the services of exterminators. This must have made life extremely difficult. For example, London is one of the greatest cities in the world. But it wasn’t always this way. Many years ago, this city was infamous for its extreme level of filth and deprivation. Part of this grimy situation included buildings teeming with rats, cockroaches, bed bugs, and all manner of other pests. Since then, we’ve come a long way, but just imagine a world without pest control today?

What would a world without pest control look like?

First of all, rats would be an even a bigger problem than they are now. You’d be dealing with these vermin on an almost daily basis and would probably resign yourself to living with them. Without access to rat control in London, we would include living with the diseases spread by these pests too. without pest control

In fact, we’ve already experienced what this would be like. The Bubonic plague – caused by fleas that live on rats – caused the deaths of almost 200 million people. This plague made COVID-19 look like a minor epidemic by comparison. Thank heavens for pest control!

Bed bugs were another huge issue that humans dealt with in the past. A 1933 report released by the UK Ministry of Health, stated that almost all houses were infested with bed bugs. Dealing with these pests is bad enough. Now imagine being permanently infested with them. A world without pest control is something we don’t even want to think about.

Pest control work is absolutely vital to society
