Pests That Might Be Living In Your Garage

You may think the only items in your garage include your car, tools, and storage containers. However, you might be surprised to find out that unwanted pests could also be living there! Keep reading to uncover which types of pests are most likely to take shelter in garages.


When there are spider webs scattered throughout your garage, it can only mean one thing–that spiders have moved in! Spiders are drawn to garages because they feed off of the smaller insects that reside there. A spider infestation can get out of control quickly if they begin to lay eggs. 


It is commonplace for mice to relocate to warmer environments such as garages during the colder months of the year. Mice are small enough to squeeze through the tiniest of openings to gain entrance to your garage. Once inside, mice make nests out of cardboard boxes and gnaw on various materials in order to survive. 


The fall weather could inspire you to complete those projects around the house. Working out of your garage with the door open could make your garage vulnerable to flies. If you plan on getting those home improvements done before the chill of winter sets in, be sure to keep your garage door closed so flies and other critters stay away.
