Unusual Places to Find Pests in Your Home

Here at Dayton’s Pest Control in Tennessee, we know that pests are sometimes the worst. They can get into your home through tiny cracks and crevices, crawl spaces, around plumbing and even through your walls. 

Here are some unusual places to find pests in your home.


Many pests love living in debris such as piles of leaves or garbage. Look for piles of clutter and if there are any pests, they will be there. 

To get rid of these pests, you need to remove the debris and seal off any holes or cracks they could have used to get into your house. 


Some pests, like bed bugs and cockroaches, are attracted to new furniture.

You’ll likely find pests in many of the fabrics used to make couches and other furniture. This means the minute you bring your new stuff home, these pests may be attracted to it.


Some pests like ants love to hide in plain sight. Take termites, for example. You’ll never know they’re there unless you see tell-tale signs of their work, like flaky or powdery spots on your walls. 

They also like to live behind wall outlets and under floorboards. If you suspect you have an infestation of these sneaky bugs, you need to contact an expert as soon as possible.

House Plants

Plant pests can be a nuisance to homeowners since these pests tend to feed on, destroy or otherwise damage the plants in your home, rather than on anything else. 

These pests can be just as harmful to your plants as common pests like termites, spiders and rodents. Identify them as quickly as possible. 


Pests have been located in the oddest of places such as in your shoes. People do not often think about looking in their shoes when they are looking for pests. But, they love the sweat and grime they can find there.
