Gutters are one usual place that can house pests. They always hold moisture, so during summer, cockroaches and other insects can easily make gutters their home. But where will they go to get some food? It’s obvious that they will gradually populate your house creating stable colonies.

It is important you clean gutters every year. Gutters that are clogged with old tree leaves might also be the source of earthworms climbing up to the roof of your house. It’s awful to watch and even realize that such things do exist in your own house. Therefore, always pay close attention to the cleanness of your roof.

Are you a grill fan? Then you probably have special grill equipment always ready for use. However, not many people like cleaning that equipment after eating tasty BBQ dishes. As a result, grill equipment are a great place for cockroaches and other insects to create colonies.

Bits of meat fat fall onto the metal parts of a grill. After sometime, it becomes impossible to clean them out and insects will be attracted by the sweet smell from afar. For sure, they will want to know what kind of refreshments you left for them in your garage. And it won’t take them long before they find their way into your house afterwards.
