Mice can sneak into your home through tiny holes and are known carriers of disease and parasites. Keep an eye out for rub marks along base-boards, chew marks and small droppings.

Rats

Capable of spreading disease to humans and pets, rats are also a major risk to home owners because they chew on wires which can cause fires.

Spiders

Spiders are fond of dark places in your home like air vents and corners. The webs that common house spiders cast can be a real nuisance to humans.

Cockroaches

An especially unpopular pest, cockroaches carry salmonella and increase the risk of asthma. Their distinctive odor and discarded skins are telltale signs of a roach infestation.

Carpenter Bees
