We’re all familiar with the tough little creatures that cockroaches are. One important thing to note that you may not know, cockroaches crave water over anything else. They’ll seek it out wherever they can, so ensure that you don’t leave areas sitting with water. 

Cockroaches are found in around 63 percent of homes in the U.S. Check out our services dedicated to dealing with cockroaches!

3. Rodents

The Norway rat, roof rat and house mouse are the main rodents you may confront. These rodents can be beneficial under the right conditions, but nobody wants to live with them. 

Unfortunately, you may end up in the 30 percent of homes that have had a rodent problem in the past.

4. Termites

One of the more destructive pests that are on this list, termites are a pain in any household. 

They’re often mistaken for ants because of their similar look and cooperative group behavior. 

That usually means that many homeowners never have any idea that they need professional help. From their perspective, there are just a few ants, but in reality, it’s a pest that can cause real structural damage to their home. 

Don’t let your home be undefended.
