Looking for signs of pests

I have never really been a person that has been afraid of pests like roaches, rats or even spiders. I have always been the type of person that when I saw one I would take care of it and make sure that there were no more where that pest came from. Now days though I have to watch for signs of a pest infestation more carefully. My youngest son is super afraid of spiders so we have to be careful of them. It is like he has a sixth sense and knows when there is one in his vicinity. So that being said we have to be extra careful about pest infestation. So it helps to look for the signs of one:

  • Gnawed food packaging
  • Droppings
  • Nesting materials
  • Unusual holes or sawdust piles
  • Dried blood flecks
  • Wings or carcasses


Being on the lookout for these things can help prevent a pest control problem of course because it is important to protect families and children from unsanitary conditions that a pest can bring on in your home and surroundings. And if you do have a pest problem or the beginnings of one it is very important to get in touch with a knowledgeable, certified exterminator.


I know I am just getting chills at the thoughts of pests and am sure to check out the signs above to make sure there is not a pest problem in my home.
