For some homes, due to space constraints, space layout is constructed creatively to suit multiple purposes and activities. Here are some common home habits that might be inviting house pests to your living or bedroom.

As a result, we tend to do many things in the common space including snacking tea breaks and meals while working or watching TV. House Pest Danger: Food crumbs and sugared drinks may drop onto your fabric sofa, rug/carpet, trapped between gaps and corners of your furniture.

In today’s busy work environment, and the work flexibility trends, we all bring work back home. Rushing deadlines and clearing outstanding would also mean working at home over the night and weekends. With study corners incorporating into bedrooms or spare room, it also means attracting these common pests that seeks the same food source as us in the room.
