Pests are everywhere, and they aren’t going away. Most people don’t have a problem with that until those pests start to invade their homes. Many people feel that if they don’t see pests then, of course, they don’t have an infestation to worry about. It’s only when they see that first bug that they scamper for the phone to call in a reputable pest control company such as https://joshuaspestcontrol.com, to come in and treat the home for them. 

There are so many pests in the world and it’s hard to name them all. There are also quite a few that you don’t want to invade your home. Below you can find a few of them. 


From squirrels to rats and mice, no one wants a rodent in their home. Not only do they carry germs and diseases, but they will also nest anywhere and eat anything, including the wiring in your home. If you find a rodent in your home, please do not try to remove it yourself. Instead, call a wildlife removal company to remove it for you, as rodents will attack if cornered or if they feel threatened.

Most common spiders won’t hurt you, as their mouths are too small to pierce the skin. However, there are quite a few dangerous spiders that will make their way into your home, if you don’t prevent them from doing so. No matter what part of the world you live in, there are spiders that can come inside, many with enough venom to make you very sick (or worse) if you get bitten. 

While spiders do keep other pests away, they can infest your property pretty quickly and become a problem. They usually move inside when it’s wet or extremely hot outside, so make sure you have your property treated before these seasons begin. Keeping the bushes trimmed and the inside of your home free of other pests should help you prevent a spider infestation from occurring in your home. 


One of the most common pest problems a home has is cockroaches. These pests carry many types of bacteria and diseases that you don’t want your family exposed to. Just the thought of one of these nasty bugs crawling across your kitchen counter or anywhere near your children is enough to send most homeowners scampering for the phone to have their home treated before an infestation can even begin. It’s important to note that cockroaches can come in when it’s too hot or too cold, and can even be brought in on the bags you get from the grocery store, so prevention is key if you don’t want to end up with a cockroach infestation in your home.

Another common pest that is easy to get, but hard to get rid of is the common ant. They live in colonies and will come in swarms when they sense that you have food and water in your home that can help them to survive. While there are quite a few ant traps, ant bait, and other products on the market to help you get rid of an infestation, your best bet is to call in the professionals at your local pest control company, instead. 

These are just a few of the top pests you don’t want to wake up and find in your home. While some are a nuisance, others can be poisonous and even deadly if you’re bitten. If you suspect you have an infestation of any of the above pests, or any pests at all, you need to contact your local pest control company right away for treatment.
