Where Do Pests Hide in Your Home?

More times than not, a person will initially spot a single cockroach in their home and ignore it. However, this is usually the first warning sign of a much bigger problem. Over time, many household pests will wander inside your Sydney home for food, warmth and shelter, thus making it their home. Pests such as cockroaches, spiders, and rodents will make their homes inside walls, in the attic or basement or any other dark secluded place they can find. Commonly in Sydney; areas in the house where we find them and require extracting them from include; wall cavities, roof voids, and subfloors. Moreover, German cockroaches are normally found within kitchen areas and roof voids predominantly, whereas spiders are located externally within tree branches, fence panels, window frames and gardens. Further, ants expose themselves when seeking food but generally come from ant mounds externally within backyards or gardens.

Today, we at Sydney Wide Pest Solutions will talk about the 4 most common places in your home where pests hide or an infestation can be found.

1. Kitchen Pantry

Just like human beings, pests also require food and water to survive. They’re then more likely to be found hiding and luring in a dark, cool space around a food source such as a pantry. Sometimes it is not easy to spot the pests if the situation is already out of control. You can also find the infestation under the kitchen sinks where there’s usually a bit of moisture and dampness from the drain pipes & garbage disposals.

2. Attics & Basements

The attic is a very popular hiding spot for pests in Sydney. They’re undisturbed a lot of the time, these storage areas serve as ideal indoor places for pests, especially spiders and cockroaches. Also, attics & basements in Sydney are warm and comfortable during cold weather which is an added benefit for the pests to grow. Additionally, it also has its fair share of clutter in most cases, which gives pests an additional sense of security. You can check for pest infestations behind boxes and stored furniture, and in hollow spaces like floor joists and rafters.

3. Garage

The garage is often one of the most infested places in any Sydney home. The first and primary reason being it’s easily accessible and permits entry to the rest of the house. On top of that, it usually contains food sources as well like a second pantry, birdseed or even rubbish. One must be aware that you could increase the risk if you use the garage for storage in Sydney as you are likely to encounter pest infestations, especially cockroaches, rodents, and more.

4. Bathrooms & Laundry Rooms

Bathrooms and laundry rooms in Sydney are also one of the common places one can find pest infestation because of their warm & moist conditions. The primary places the pests like to hide are under sinks, toilets, underneath and behind washers and dryers, behind wall decorations, and in & around vents, and ducts.
