Keep disease-carrying pests at bay this Christmas season

It’s that wonderful time of the year again when we Filipinos, known for celebrating the longest Christmas in the world, gather our families and relatives for a grand holiday reunion to remember. To get everyone into the spirit of the season, we light up our homes and deck our halls with all sorts of Yuletide décor.

But do you know that even as our visitors bask in the warmth of our welcome, “unwanted guests” threaten to spread holiday gloom and doom?

We may be so engrossed in the frenzied holiday preparations that we fail to note the presence of disease-carrying pests lurking around the house. These vile little critters—cockroaches, rats, mice, and mosquitos, among others—might be hiding in our closets, cabinets, drawers, and in those tiny crevices all over the house, ready to wreak havoc on our best-laid holiday plans.  

And we could unknowingly set these pests loose when we retrieve those Christmas décors stashed in dusty storage boxes.

When we do, these loathsome creatures could unleash the vermin they carry, exposing our family to different diseases and turning our Christmas from merry and bright to one highly stressful and dark one instead.

The good news is, with thorough cleaning and the right home pest solutions, our Christmas can indeed be filled with holiday cheer. Jardine Distribution Inc.’s complete line of Home Pest Solutions, which includes Klerat Single Feed Rodenticide, Optigard Roach and Ant Bait, and ZAP aerosol insecticide, ensures that no harmful bugs, pests, and creepy crawlies will spoil the most joyful season of the year.

For instance, JDI’s line of Home Pest Solutions will exterminate disease-carrying pests like rats and mice—the most common sources of the deadly disease called leptospirosis. Leptospirosis is commonly acquired when an open wound is exposed to water contaminated with rat urine, such as when people wade in dirty floodwaters, or when they handle things on which rat urine has dried. Thus, we need to take extra precautions, especially when going through old Christmas décors.

Finally, when the holiday season’s over, we must properly store our ornaments, preferably in tightly covered plastic storage boxes to prevent pest infestation.

Make this season of family gatherings absolutely worry-free and memorable by keeping household pests at bay.

After making sure that our home is scrupulously clean, we can depend on JDI’s complete line of Home Pest Solutions to protect our home from unwelcome guests, not only at Christmas time but all-year-round as well.

Jardine Home Pest Solutions is available in leading Supermarkets—Shopwise, Rustan’s, Wellcome and DIY stores nationwide - Handyman, Ace, Citi, and Wilcon, among others. For more information, go to
