Is Your Home at Risk from Pests?


Looking for signs of pests is not always easy. It is simpler to identify areas in your home or in your yard, which pests may find particularly appealing:

  • A leaky outdoor faucet or pond in your yard may be an ideal breeding site for mosquitoes.
  • Unsealed gaps around pipes and drains could be an ideal entry point for rats and mice into your home.
  • Crumbs left on your kitchen floor and under cabinets will be very attractive to ants and roaches
  • Unsealed garbage cans and compost bins will appeal to flies, yellow jackets and rodents.
  • Firewood piles in your yard and rotting tree stumps are very appealing to some species of termites and carpenter ants.
  • Uncovered food left in the kitchen or out in the backyard will attract flies and wasps.
  • Unclean pet bedding can be ideal for fleas and their eggs.
  • Spider webs in the corner of rooms and in hard-to-reach places could be inviting spiders into your home.
  • Damp and moist basements, closets and bathrooms will be attractive to centipedes.
  • Neglected, damp crawl spaces will interest pillbugs and sowbugs.
  • Overgrown vegetation will be a haven for mosquitoes.
  • Lush, well-fertilized lawns and shrubs will be a magnet for clover mites.
