We don’t want to point any fingers here but the truth of the matter is that when it comes to pest infestations, many times we are the ones responsible for pests getting into our own homes and for sticking around. It is the little things like leaving the garage door open or letting dirty dishes sit in the sink overnight that could attract mice, ants, cockroaches and other insect and rodents. Though we don’t even realize our actions are only contributing to pest problems.
Obviously the welcome mat at your front door is intended for friends and family and not nuisance and annoying insects and rodents common to Little Rock and all of Arkansas, however, some of our daily habits or conditions in or around our homes welcome them in anyway. So to help bring awareness to the matter, the team of AR pest control pros at McCauley Services would like to help out. We’ve compiled a list of items that could contribute to an infestation in your home.
Leaving crumbs or spills on the floors and counters
Not emptying the trash can regularly
Leaving outdoor trash cans too close to the house and not secured with tight fitting lids
Leaving food on the counters and/or not storing open food packages correctly
Allowing dirty dishes to piles up in the sink overnight
Forgetting to vacuum and/or sweep under fridge and other kitchen appliances
Not fixing the leaky pipe or appliance
Creating a compost pile close to the house
Storing firewood in the garage or against the exterior of the home
Torn or window and door screens
Vents that are not covered
Cracks around doors, windows, along the foundation and other areas on the exterior
Excessive moisture and/or standing water
If you are prone to leaving the trash in the bin a bit too long or you haven’t sealed the crack on the outside of your home or any of the other situations mentioned
above then your house is much more susceptible to a pest infestation. Unfortunately, you may already have unwanted houseguests and haven’t even realized it yet at many pests can go unnoticed for long periods of time and the damage (structural damage, contamination, spread of disease, etc.) has already been done.
