Pests at Home and Where You Can Find Them

No matter how committed you are to keeping your home clean, expect bugs, rodents and other creepy crawlies to appear without warning. They can thrive in your home as long as they stay out of sight. However, if you know where to look, you can minimize their unwanted effects, such as bites, property damage and disease exposure. Here’s a look at the many places in and around your home where you can find household pests.

Furniture

Any piece of furniture could make an enticing home for bugs and other nasty pests. Carpet beetles, for instance, can be found not just under carpets, but also in upholstered furniture and boxes of clothing, destroying anything that is made of both natural and synthetic fibers. Fleas aren’t only brought in by dogs and cats; they can also thrive in these same locations where their young can feed on dust and pet dander.

Electrical Outlets

The covers of electrical outlets can serve as a place of refuge for small insects like bed bugs, beetles and ants. If you see a fine and powdery substance seeping through the cracks around the outlet, it probably means that they are also hiding in many different locations around your home. Get in touch with a pest control specialist as soon as possible to get rid of them.

Gutters

Your home’s gutter system can accumulate leaves, twigs and other organic matter that can cause clogs and prevent water runoff from being directed away from your property. The debris buildup inside your gutters can also become a shelter or breeding place for ants, rodents and other pests. If not removed right away, they can find their way into your attic and your home interior eventually.
