Cockroaches can generally be found in warm spaces in the home, in wall cavities and in kitchens.

Many pests live in our homes without us even knowing about it and mice do that in millions of properties throughout the country. Mice generally live in quiet and warm places and they are known to nest in small cabinets or within the cavity of the walls. Not only can mice cause damage through biting, they are also know to spread disease and they may even present a fire hazard if they chew through electrical wiring.
When the weather warms up and people begin to open up their homes to let the air in, they can often run the risk of having mosquitoes in the home. These are the biggest killers in the world, not because they are physically dangerous, but because they move from human to human, looking to feed on the blood and that is how they are able to pass disease on from one person to the next. There are over 150 species of mosquito here in the USA and they love nothing more than getting out when the heat rises, and biting all who come in their path.
You’ll also need to be aware of rats, ants, wasps and even flies in your home, these are all pests which can cause damage and which are quite simply a pain. If you see any dead animals or droppings then be sure to call the experts out as soon as possible.
