Why Pests Seem to Enjoy Every Home

Health,Home Improvement,Family & Parenting
Pests tend to enjoy our homes because the conditions there are more than suitable for them to survive and thrive. They can find food, there are lots of places to hide and they don't have to worry about the numerous natural predators they would otherwise face outside.

Residents of apartments can better prevent and reduce infestations by understanding how pests get into their homes and what they need to survive.

Most pests are attracted by debris from human or animal activities and the shelter our homes offer. The first priority for effective pest prevention is to understand your adversary. The goal is to identify and seal pest entry points, eliminate sources of food, establish good housekeeping habits, and if necessary, actively eliminate pests with traps and pesticides.

Common household pests include insects, such as ants, cockroaches, termites, flies, moths and wasps. Urban wildlife, such as rodents, raccoons, bats and birds can sometimes become problems in buildings as well. Insects are the most common and troublesome pests found in apartment buildings.

Pests can creep inside a grocery bag from the store or a suitcase from travels abroad. They can move into your home, from the apartment next door or the one above or below. Apartment buildings have many "highways" for pests to follow. They crawl along heating ducts or water pipes and they squeeze into tiny cracks and gaps in floors, walls and doorways.

Once inside your apartment, a pest can probably find everything it needs to survive and multiply quickly. No matter how neat and clean your apartment is, the pest will likely locate the food, water, warmth and dark hiding places it needs to live and breed. Regardless of whether you own or rent your apartment, there are steps you can take to make your apartment less inviting to pests.

Pests will take various routes to find their way into your apartment. Insects enter apartments through poorly sealed or open windows and doors, cracks and crevices in walls or foundations, and openings around pipes and other penetrations. Insects can squeeze through extremely small openings. Vents and air ducts can provide an entry point for birds, rodents and insects. Insects can also attach themselves to pets, or to people and the items they are carrying.

Look under the kitchen sink and you may see a gap between the sink drain pipe and the wall or floor. Holes in window screens, gaps around window trim and cracks between the floors and the walls may all offer travel routes for pests.
