How to know if you have a pest at home?

Animal species that can cause a pest behave differently, so it is difficult to establish parameters for all of them. With regard to homes, the most common are cockroaches and rats, especially those that are at street level or close to gardens and nature.

When temperatures exceed 20 degrees there is a high probability of suffering a pest of cockroaches, since in these situations they exceed their reproduction. For this reason, this type of insect is very common in the summer season. Some cockroach species and mice can produce short circuits in the house with fire risk. Rats can give cables, downspouts and technical rooms.

The second most common pest is that of termites and carcomas, which can cause structural damage to buildings. Pigeons also fall into this category as they are a real threat to real estate. Pigeon droppings cause permanent stains and premature corrosion in metal structures.

To detect if you have a pest at home it is very important that you watch for traces of excrement, in the case of cockroaches or rodents. To know if it is termites or other insects you can control if there are remains of sawdust around the doors. Ants usually appear in kitchens, attracted to sugar or other foods.

When live specimens of these animals are found during the day or at night, it will be a clear sign that there is a plague in the house. Trying to solve a pest by own methods usually aggravates the problem, so it is highly recommended to contact pest control companies to solve the problem.

If I've never noticed any of the traces of pests,it means there are no one? Could it be possible they just hide from me?
