Pests That Could Be Lurking In Your Basement

Posted on August 13th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

If you have an unfinished basement, you probably do not spend a lot of time there. Unfortunately, uninhabited areas of your house provide the perfect home for pests. Keep reading to find out which pests could be lurking in your basement.


Since termites typically reside underground, it is no wonder why you may discover them in your basement! Termites are able to make their way into homes through gaps in the foundation. Once inside, these pests will start to gnaw on any wooden structures they can sink their teeth into.


A dark and damp basement is the ideal place for a spider to seek shelter. Cellar spiders, house spiders, and black widow spiders are notorious for hiding out in basements. Finding any type of spider in your basement can be especially distressing if you have a fear of spiders.


It is no secret that mice and rats love to congregate in basements. These rodents can squeeze through very small crevices to gain access to your home. If you come across any rodent droppings in your basement, it is very possible that there are rodents living in your home.

Have you seen termites, spiders, or rodents in your basement? If so, turn to the professionals here at Knockout Pest Control for assistance. We can knockout pests and keep them down for the count!
