Though rats are larger than their smaller rodent cousin, the mouse, they can still fit into almost any area a mouse can. Rodents have been known to squeeze through holes the size of a nickel.
There is quite a wide variety of pests that can invade your home. If you’ve seen an ant, rodent, or any other pest there’s likely already an infestation. Depending on your landscape, geographical location, and exterior surroundings you may actually be more prone to some pests than others. Making your home less attractive to pests can go a long way in preventative pest maintenance.
There is more to the process of tackling a mouse problem than just removing the mice. It's also vital to find out where they are entering the dwelling and solve that issue so a reinfestation doesn't occur.
For many of us, seeing any type of spider indoors can cause alarm. It’s good to be familiar with the common types of household spiders and to know whether they pose a health risk. They aren’t all cause for panic. Some can actually be beneficial in controlling other insects. You can identify some spiders by web patterns but it’s much easier to identify most spiders by color, shape, and markings.
