What Makes Houses Vulnerable to Pests?

Do you fear entering the kitchen at midnight to spot cockroaches scurrying across the floor? If you suffer from a pest infestation, chances are you are already fed up with it and looking for an easy way out.

Why are pests infesting my house?

It is interesting yet worrisome to know that common pests are more drawn towards some houses than others. If you witness an increasing population of insects invading your house, it can be due to multiple factors that encourage pests to inhabit, feed, and stay hydrated inside your home.

1.    Uncleaned clutter

This is probably the primary reason why your house is infested. Leaving unwashed dishes in the sink gives rise to a huge population of roaches, which can feed on the food residues overnight, party on the leftovers, and sleep with their tummies full. Uncleaned table tops, kitchen counter, and in-house garbage are the signs of a buffet for these little scavenging pests.

Moreover, home-pests are always finding ways to hide and breed in your clutter. Despite having infiltrated your home and found their basic nests, they absolutely love to find clutter where the other half of the population (read “off-springs”) can plague. Cardboard boxes, cabinets, drawers, and unused stuff in the basements is every pest’s dream come true. Therefore, this is also where the best pest removal services begin their work from – cutting down possible hiding places of infestation.

2.    Aging house

The other major reason why pests are drawn to your house is that it has started to age. When a house gets old without regular repair or maintenance, it becomes vulnerable to infestation. Cracks open in the wood, gaps occur in the sealings and plaster, and the paint starts to chip away. These areas are the next most-loved places of pests and bugs. They find optimal privacy, darkness, and dampness to breed and hide years long.

Many best pest removal services recommend doing a complete repair or renovation of your worn-out house to cut down the roots of pest infestation, which brings us to the fact that an aged house can become their permanent hideout. Before you end up encountering immune and resilient “families” of pests, make sure you do the necessary repairs and seal the patches.

3.    Humidity inside house

It’s a no-brainer that all living things need water to survive – to drink, breed, and absorb. Many bugs require a lot of water to stay alive. Humidity is another major element that attracts all pests to swarm over to your place throughout the year. They actively look for damp, moist places to live in and are thrilled to get drinking water in your humid kitchen. As a preventive measure, try as much as possible to fetch sunlight to every corner of your house. Open the curtains wide, let the sun pour in every day, and dry up the hiding spots of these pests.


Do pest removal companies offer a guarantee? Pest infestation is a common problem nowadays. There are several companies offering pest removal services, but the question that arises is; is there a guarantee?

The best, most effective ones always usually offer a guarantee to their service. The terms may differ slightly, such as some companies offer no extra charges to make visits if bugs return, whereas others offer a refund. If you fail to control pests by preventive measures, your last resort is always a pest removing professional service.
