Pest risk factors

  • An open garbage can stored under the sink can be a magnet for flies, rodents, roaches and ants.
  • Mice, roaches and other pests can enter a home through tiny gaps between plumbing pipes and walls.
  • Food that is not sealed tightly can attract “pantry pests” such as roaches and rodents.
  • Improperly sealed attics or crawl spaces can become access points for spiders, rodents and other pests.
  • A leaking roof or a blocked gutter can accumulate moisture, a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
  • Mosquitoes, flies and other pests enter through small openings around windows and door frames.
  • Some pests can reach your home via high grass or yard debris.
  • Piles of firewood stacked near your home can lead to pests such as carpenter ants and termites.
