Got bugs? Whether it’s ants in the kitchen, roaches in the bathroom or rats in the attic, every home is susceptible to an infestation of common household rodents, bugs and other pests. Once these pesky critters find a way inside, they can pose significant threats to our health, food and property. Locating and properly identify these home invaders is crucial when dealing with an infestation or attempting to prevent one from taking hold in the first place. If household pests are left unchecked, they can start to turn your home into theirs, leading to a full-blown infestation.
Typically the areas of the house that are most affected are rooms with food, moisture or clutter since they are likely to attract ants, cockroaches, mice, rats, flies and other common household bugs. Though maintaining a clean and tidy home is essential to keeping these pests and rodents at bay, there are other measures that go a long way in preventing an infestation from taking root – and they vary by room.
