If pests give you the heebie-jeebies, then you’ll want to know about their habitats.
We will let you know where pests hide and where they gain access to homes and businesses.
Pests are most likely to occur and become established in those areas where all the pest’s needs are met: food, water or moisture, warmth, and a hiding place (harborage). Home and business owners take preventive measures as part of a seasonal maintenance routine. Attics and basements are often overlooked. Rodents such as mice and rats tend to be the most common invaders of attics and basements, but other insects can also make themselves at home if given a chance. The usual suspects include: cockroaches, spiders, ants, and stink bugs.
Pests find entry points into homes through almost any opening, including cracks and crevices as small as a nickel in the structures exterior. Once mice/rats find there way into attics or basements, they can cause serious and costly property damage. Rodents are capable of destroying insulation in attics and chewing through walls, baseboards and electrical wires. Rodents cause up to 25 percent of house fires in the United States each year!
Harborage: where pests are found.
Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there. From carpenter ants between walls, to spiders in corners, invasive insects and other pests can hide just about anywhere.
Because one pest is too many.
