Pest Infestations On the Rise Because of Rains
he heavy rains and local floods caused pest infestations across the country, reports Vesti.bg.
According to Ventsislav Boychev, employee of a pest control company, the demand for such services in Sofia increased several times. People were complaining from infestations of rats, cockroaches, wasps, ants, fleas and bedbugs.
People living in the recently flooded areas are complaining from rat infestations, as the rodents were abandoning the flooded basements.
The head of the Pest Control Association Konstantin Todorov said the unusually wet summer was leading to an increase in tick and mosquito populations, as the rains washed off the repellents, sprayed in the city parks and gardens.
