General Pest Control FAQ
WHY DO PESTS GET INSIDE MY HOME OR BUSINESS?
Just like humans, pests need food and shelter to survive.
Many pests that enter your home - like spiders - are looking for shelter.
Others are looking for food. Some pests like the same foods you eat, some choose a diet of wood (as in termites), while others like the taste of blood (as in bed bugs and mosquitoes). If your property is easy to get into - through doors, window cracks or other points of entry - and if they can find a good meal - from crumbs, wood or your blood - you are at risk of an infestation.
