Where To Check For Pest Infestation?
Knowing where pests tend to reside is the first step in addressing a potential problem. Here are the most important places to look and some of the creatures you might find there:
1. Your kitchen
One of the favorite places for pests to colonize your home will be the kitchen. The reason is simple, there is an unlimited supply of food. Whether it is crumbs on the floor, uncleaned spillage, or pantry goods. The other main reason is that there is easy access to water as well. That makes your kitchen the perfect home for a pest infestation.
Knowing that, it comes as no surprise that roaches, ants, rats, and mice will try to build a home in your kitchen. If you leave them unchecked, this can become out of control pretty fast.
2. The Basement & The Attic
When winter comes, animals and insects will try to flee the cold weather, which sometimes means that they will enter your attic or basement. A good and easy to visualize an example of that is a family of raccoons or mice that will live in your attic.
Once there is a pest infestation in your home, they are likely to destroy things that you have stored. For example, moths and roaches will feed on your clothes, cardboard or even the insulation of your home. It is important that you check your attic and basement to see if there is any pest living in them. If it is the case, you can always give us a call!
