Although keeping your home clean and tidy is a great way to limit pest exposure, some critters love to hide in the most unexpecting places, away from human sight. Here at K.C.S, we understand that when pests are hiding, they still cause more harm than good - that's why we've created a list of 3 unexpected places to check for infestations in your Nambour home.
1. Stuffed Animals
Stuffed animals are common in many homes with kids, but wear and tear can cause tiny breaks in seams that provide an entrance for pests, particularly bed bugs, mites and roaches.
Whether your child takes their plush toys outside and in public places, shares them with other children, or only uses them as a pillow, it's essential for all parents to regularly wash stuffed toys and check for any signs of pests.
It may seem unlikely that pests would choose somewhere as cold as a refrigerator to live, but some critters have evolved to tolerate freezing temperatures for hours - and sometimes even days. Fruit flies, roaches and gnats are especially evident, as their attraction to food is stronger than their distaste for the temperature.
3. Dishwashers and Washing machines
Even though dishwashers and washing machines are usually sparkling from consistent use, it's common to find critters while trying to clean up.
Even if only a day between uses, pest infestations can happen fast, especially in these machines as most generally gravitate toward wet and dark places. Due to this, here at K.C.S, we recommend checking these machines for signs of life before using them so you don't need to clean up twice.
The best way to prevent pest infestations in these unexpected places is prevention, so if you're worried about finding critters hiding in your Nambour home, be sure to call K.C.S for a personalised quote and plan.
