Top 10 household pests
Discover what pests could be in your home
READING, Pa., December 10, 2014 — Homeowners work hard to keep their homes safe and healthy during the holiday season. Uninvited guests, especially small, furry rodents, are never welcome at any time of the year, but especially at holiday time. The Rentokil family of pest control companies (Ehrlich Pest Control, Western Exterminator and Presto-X Pest Control), provide tips on how to prevent nuisance wildlife from getting inside the home.
“The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) reports that finding any wildlife in your home can be a very unsettling experience at any time of year, but particularly as you are busy planning your holiday fun,” said Nancy Troyano, PhD, entomologist for Rentokil. “The important thing to remember is that pests can enter a structure through very small openings including openings as small as a dime, making it easy for them to find a way indoors and quickly cause a full-blown infestation. Additionally, and equally important, is the concern that they can potentially harbor and spread disease. However, unwanted pests can be prevented with some simple precautions.”
