There are only two things that keep you away from the game, one is foul and the other is health. Luis Suarez, a Uruguayan football player got out of the game as he committed a foul and, Neymar, Brazilian football, player couldn’t continue playing due to his health issue.

If anything goes wrong with us we fail to perform well in every field. Human health depends on healthy environment. Whether it is our home or office.

There are many factors that affect our health and with that come many ways to prevent us from going sick. Pests are one of the main reasons that upset human health.

Pests live within us; they roam around our kitchen and have probably settled in our “home sweet home”. We do not only welcome them but the health problems they bring for us.

One must think over this that pests are human killers, and to terminate them, a pest control service should be hired. As, Mahatma Gandhi said,

“It is the health that is real wealth, not gold and silver”
