Pests are sneakier than you think and have a knack for finding their way into your food processing facility. But don’t worry-we’re here to help narrow down the search! We’ll provide helpful tips so that pesky pests won’t bite into any products – ultimately protecting both profits and morale in this tough economic climate where everyone needs every edge against competition from other companies.
The same goes for when you want to find pests in your home. They hide in places you never can imagine, so you should check out this guide! We’ll help you figure out where to look for pests and how to get rid of them once and for all.
Before we start, there are two main places, the inside and the outside. The inside and outside of your house is a breaking point from which a pest can enter or exit. So, to make things easier, we’ll be dividing this guide into two sections.
Section 1: Finding Pests in Your Home (Inside and Outside)
As stated before, pests are good at hiding. But that doesn’t mean they’re invincible! With some know-how, you can find where these critters are nesting and get rid of them for good.
The first step is to inspect your house from top to bottom thoroughly. It means looking in all the cracks and crevices and behind furniture and appliances. The most common places that pests like to hide are:
- Kitchens (pests like to feast on food scraps and crumbs!)
- Bathrooms (pests are attracted to moisture)
- Storage areas (pests like to nest in the dark, secluded places)
- Basements and attics (these are usually humid and dark, making them ideal places for pests to hide)
Once you’ve thoroughly inspected your house, it’s time to look for signs of pests. The most common signs of pests are:
- Gnaw marks
- Egg casings
- Shed skin
- Musty odours
If you notice any of these signs, likely pests are lurking nearby.
Section 2: Finding Pests in Your Facility (Inside and Outside)
Finding pests in your home may be easy, but finding them in your facility or a commercial place is hard. The main reason is that these places are usually huge, and there are a lot of hiding spots for pests. But don’t worry, we’ll help you out!
The first step is to check where food is stored or processed. It includes the kitchen, pantry, storage rooms, and other areas where food is present. Pests are attracted to food, so these are likely places where they will be hiding.
The second step is to check all the places where water is present. It includes bathrooms, sinks, toilets, and other areas where water is present. Pests are attracted to moisture, so these are likely places where they will be hiding.
The third step is to check all the places where trash is present. It includes garbage cans, dumpsters, and other areas where trash is present. Pests are attracted to garbage, so these are likely places where they will be hiding.
If you see any of these signs, likely pests are lurking nearby.
