Is Coronavirus Transmitted by Pests?

Dr. Jorge Parada

There are many questions surrounding the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), including how it’s spread. With warm weather approaching, there may be concerns about disease transmission from insects, but it’s important to note that coronavirus is not spread by vector pests. While the best and most up-to-date resource for information on coronavirus remains the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we’ll take a look at the differences between common vector-borne diseases and various coronaviruses to help dispel any myths about transmission.

What are Vector Pests?
Vector pests such as ticks and mosquitoes are known to play significant roles in the transmission of many critical diseases. Worldwide, mosquitoes are the leading vectors responsible for the transmission of infections to humans, and are responsible for spreading malaria, Zika virus, West Nile virus (WNV), Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE), chikungunya, yellow fever and many more. Ticks are responsible for the transmission of the most common vector-borne infection in the United States, Lyme disease, as well as many other infections such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis.

What are Common Human Coronaviruses?
Common human coronaviruses were first identified in the 1960s, and are well-known causes of the common cold and flu. There are four main subgroupings of human coronaviruses, and they are mainly transmitted through contact with bodily fluid from an infected person by simple acts like coughing and sneezing. Microscopic droplets produced by the infected person can be inhaled by someone nearby (usually within a three to six-foot radius), or they can also be transmitted via contact with a contaminated surface (one that was just coughed upon) and then inadvertently touching one’s face or rubbing one’s eyes, or by something as simple as sharing a spoon to taste someone’s dessert.

How is COVID-19 Different?
SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and now COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) are zoonotic coronaviruses – viruses that have jumped the species barrier from their normal animal hosts to humans. This can happen through direct contact with an infected animal, as well as indirect contact or eating contaminated food. Zoonotic diseases are also very common and once transmitted to humans, they can spread through person-to-person contact as well, making proper handwashing and other preventative actions outlined by the CDC paramount to public safety.

Testimonials

Susan Donchez

Just wanted to thank you once again for helping us out by ridding us of yet another yellow jacket nest. Meeting Tom was a pleasure. He was very professional and polite and clearly communicated the precautions we needed to take after the completion of the extermination. Sharon has also been a pleasure to work with. She has been very thorough at scheduling and following through on each and every item that we discuss. The communication flow within your organization has been flawless.

Last but not least, I truly appreciate your responsiveness and follow through each time I contact you for service. At a time when good customer service seems to be a 'thing of the past', your organization proves otherwise. Thanks again and please know I will take every opportunity to recommend Quest Termite and Pest.

Your service is excellent. Tom came yesterday and he is friendly and efficient and thorough and so knowledgeable. He explains things to me clearly. He is great with my kids too! You guys are so good about coming back at no additional charge if we have any sort of problem between sprays. We never have bug issues because of your service. It helps me sleep better at night knowing that there is nothing harmful or gross getting at my kids. I say that in all sincerity! Thank you for providing such a great service at an affordable price.

I really think Tom is a wonderful guy and I look forward to seeing him every six months. In the past our technicians have been Dean and Paul, and they were both excellent too.

I can't say enough about the fast response and fabulous customer service that Quest provided to us. We had a pest issue that was extremely stressful and needed immediate attention. When we called they got someone out right away, explained how they could help and handled it quickly. Great local company, I have already recommended them to friends and family.

I received a recommendation from a good friend from my hometown Who is in the pest control business. He said Chris and his company were too notch and would provide the service I'm used too, and not the service I received from another company once I moved to the Lehigh Valley. Chris coordinated with Kendra at the office to have Tom come out and service my property for the fall and winter because we had almost been left out in the cold. Tom was excellent and did a thorough inspection and service of the property. Would recommend Quest over all else.
