Insects come in all colors and sizes. In fact, scientists have identified around 900 thousand species of insects. Each of which has unique behaviors, physical characteristics, and survival needs. With this said, not all insect species infiltrate residential establishments. More residential pest infestations involve the cockroach, ant, fly, flea, rat, mouse, bed bug, and spider. These species of pests are drawn to specific locations of the home. For example, the rat and mouse are drawn to the kitchen, while the bed bug is drawn to the bedroom.
Why Pests Target Residential Establishments?

Like humans, pests have essential needs like food, water, and shelter. Each pest species has a unique diet. For example, the bed bug diet consists of blood, derived from humans or animals. Another example is the ant diet, which consists of dead insect carcasses, food crumbs, plant nectar, leaves, nuts, seeds, and grains.
It cannot be stressed enough, pest species target homes for various reasons, with the main one being food, followed by shelter, warmth, and safety.
Home Infiltration Of Overwintering Pests
Overwintering pests, an insect species that spend the winter season in a deep sleep, are not always considered household pests, they do invade homes from time to time. The cluster fly, Brown Marmorated Stink Bug “BMSB”, ladybug, and box elder “boxelder’ bug. When it comes to home infiltration, overwintering pests are in need of shelter. These insect species do not feed or breed after home infiltration.
How Do Pests Infiltrate Residential Establishments?
Pests invade homes and other residential establishments through accessible exterior-to-interior openings. These access points are more commonly found along utility passageways, leading from the perimeter to the interior of the home. Utility passages are more often utilized by mice, rats, spiders, centipedes, and cockroaches. Ladybugs, stinkbugs, and box elder bugs, on the other hand, infiltrate homes through small exterior-to-interior crevices.
Cracks, gaps, holes, and crevices are oftentimes the result of normal wear and tear. Once the damage has created an exterior-to-interior opening, it will become an access point for household pests. Depending on the diameter of the opening, it may not be accessible for rodents, only insects.
