Why Bugs and Insects are Drawn
to the Living Room
Larger in size than other rooms, living rooms provide pests with many hiding spots. Carpets in particular serve as shelter and even food for some bugs. For other pests food crumbs left behind from TV dinners or late-night snacks will more than satisfy their appetites. Aside from these attractants, living rooms generally provide a more accessible area for pests compared to other parts of the house.
Typically the living room location is ideal, located on the first floor and near the front door, and also tend to have multiple windows, it gives these pests numerous entry points. In addition, living rooms have a great deal of foot traffic in comparison to other rooms, giving any hitchhiking bugs many opportunities to ride in on clothing, personal items or pets.
