Damages to your house’s flooring and siding can be yet another explanation as to how pests come into your house. Just a little crack on the wall would be a good home for a colony of ants. As soon as they get there, they will use the heat insulation to organize their permanent housing.

There are plenty of insect species which can live in such conditions. Furthermore, where will they get their food from? It’s obvious – they all will go to your house and cause you a lot of troubles. So, make sure you avoid such trouble by having any cracks, leaks and holes in the walls and roof repaired.

Up-to-date vent systems feature microcell nets for protection against pests. But after a period of time, these nets appear to be torn. It causes a lot of troubles for home owners because insects start to crawl into the house through the vents, especially during autumn. Just keep a check on the ventilation system and change the accessories from time to time.

Low ventilation door placement can also be an entrance route for rats and mice. Make sure that you find a way to prevent all those species from entering your house. This is important as it doesn’t only affect the comfort of your living, but it also compromises your health, safety and confidence.
