The Most Common Pests Found In Homes 

Since 1932, Presto-X has been going above and beyond to solve customers' pest problems. Our Technicians are trained to treat your residence for the most common home invaders. A wide variety of household pests have been know to cause damage and even spread disease. Below is listed some of the pests that frequent homes and require professional pest control services. 


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.


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 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.


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

While carpenter bees are unlikely to sting humans, they will bore holes into wood and damage your home. Carpenter bees will leave perfectly round holes on the outside of your home.

Yellow Jackets

Colonies of yellow jackets will nest in sheds, hollow walls, attics and under porches. Yellow jackets will become aggressive when provoked and stings can cause allergic reactions.


Common home invaders in the Spring, ants will leave small piles of dirt and dust. Carpenter ants are capable of causing damage to your home if left untreated.


These many-legged creatures are fond of moist basements and bathrooms. Centipedes will bite humans unlike millipedes.


Especially common in homes where dogs and cats are present, fleas are known carriers of the tapeworm parasite and will inflict itchy bites.
