Common house-infesting pests in Phoenix, Tucson & Southern AZ

When you were viewing your new home for the first time, there’s a good chance you didn’t see any bugs crawling across counters or hiding in the bathroom. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean they weren’t there or that you won’t discover them once you’ve had a chance to really live in your new space. In order not to be caught off guard by pest infestations, it’s helpful to know what insects and rodents to be on the lookout for and where to look for them. In our region, some of the most common house-infesting pests include: 

Don’t ignore pest problems in or around your home

If you’ve spotted ants in your kitchen, spied a cockroach in your bathroom, or found mouse poop in the garage, it’s important to take action. Left untreated pest problems can result in damage to your home and belongings as well as jeopardize your good health.  

Helpful pest prevention tips 

To keep pests out of your home, our pest control specialists recommend the following prevention tips: 

  • Sealing off potential points of entry 
  • Deep cleaning your home
  • Removing clutter in your home, garage, and yard
  • Keeping your grass trimmed and your yard well-maintained
  • Eliminating potential food sources inside and out
  • Correcting areas where water pools 
  • Fixing plumbing problems
  • Replacing water-damaged wood
  • Addressing moisture issues
  • Repairing and/or replacing damaged window screens

What to do if you discover pests infesting your home 

As we mentioned above, ignoring pest problems won’t do you any favors and in fact, will result in larger infestations and potentially more headaches. If you find your new home has been infested by insects or rodents, you should contact a pest control company right away.

Testimonials

‟I bought a home, sight unseen (I trusted a VA inspector) in rural Cochise County, AZ.
After moving in I quickly discovered that the home was INFESTED with vermin and BROWN RECLUSE SPIDERS!

NW Exterminating installed ‘Desert Guard’ and that took care of ALL of the vermin, and, after a few treatments of Spider Power-Dusting in my crawl space I am free of dangerous spiders!
