Common pests can be more than just annoying. They can also be health hazards. Cockroaches, mice, and rats – in addition to the chemicals we use to control them – can contaminate the air in our homes and trigger asthma and allergy attacks. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a holistic method of pest control that addresses serious pest infestations and prevents pests from getting out of control in the first place. The Healthy Homes Coalition can help families control pests to prevent asthma attacks and help with allergies.
