Pests can create health problems and structural damage to your house without anybody even knowing they are there. Without knowing what to look for, pests can live in your home for years before being caught. Learning that you have a pest infestation and what kind of pest infestation is the first step in exterminating them. Here are some things to look for around the house to make sure you don't have any unwelcome creatures living with you.

Where to Look

Some of the places you should search include the kitchen, around appliances and in the garage. The kitchen is a hot spot for pests, not only because of all the food that is stored in kitchens but also because of the many pipes extending to and from the kitchen which pest use to travel. Make sure to check around places with appliances as well, like laundry rooms, utility rooms, basements and attics. These are warm places that pests like to settle around. Also, check your garage. The garage directly borders the outside, so pests will have little difficulty making their way in. Meanwhile, the garage has many places to hide and things to chew on, so it is a prime location for pests to live.
