Some of the biggest scourges you must keep an eye out for are rodents; rats and mice. You can see house rats 12 months of the year. They are not suited to any particular season, but active in spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Mice generally nest in warm corners and quiet spots, such as the attic, the basement, the loft and cavity walls.
You should also watch out for rats, the brown rat being the most common variety in the UK. Many have a fear of rats and it’s not hard to see why. They can spread disease and leave droppings behind which could lead to illness. They can leave smear marks, chew electrical cables and bore holes in furniture. They may even get to your food, which is partly why people are eager to get rid of them.
Moths are another common pest in the home. They produce white caterpillar larvae which, along with their sticky eggs, can damage clothing. Bed bugs are also a common nuisance, which, despite their name, are normally spied in crevices, nooks, and crannies. Bed bugs live on human blood and reproduce exponentially, where they can quickly swarm if left unchecked.
Home owners should also keep a look out for flies, be it fruit flies or bluebottles, ants, wasps or cockroaches, alongside other pests, which may be found in the home.
