Whether it’s ants in the kitchen, cockroaches in the bathroom or mice in the basement, every home is susceptible to an infestation of common household rodents, bugs and other pests. Unfortunately, once these pests find a way inside, they can pose significant threats to our health, food and property. Being able to locate and properly identify these home invaders is critical when dealing with an infestation or attempting to prevent one from taking hold in the first place. If household bugs are left unchecked, over time they can start to turn your home into theirs, leading to a full-blown infestation.
Generally speaking, rooms with food, moisture or clutter are most likely to attract ants, cockroaches, mice, rats, flies and other common household bugs. While maintaining a clean and tidy home is essential to keeping these pests and rodents at bay, there are other pest-proofing measures that go a long way in preventing an infestation from taking root – and they vary by room.
