If you’re like most people, you don’t spend much time thinking about what’s inside your walls. Out of sight, out of mind, right? You’re more interested in what’s on your walls, like pictures of family, paintings, and other decorative items. You don’t give a second thought about wood studs, wiring, conduit, or living creatures. What? Living creatures?! You betcha. There are all kinds of bugs and wildlife that take up residence in our walls. If you could see through your walls, it would probably shock you. That is why even Superman has ongoing pest control services. But, we digress. Here’s what you need to know about your wall voids.
You may or may not know this, but your walls are hollow. Between each of the wall studs inside your wall is space where living creatures can dwell, large creatures like squirrels, bats, rats, and mice all the way down to the tiniest of bugs. In fact, your wall voids are the perfect place for a wide variety of creatures to live. Inside your walls, it is warm, safe, and probably close to a food source. What creature wouldn’t want to live there?
You might think that having bugs and animals in your walls would be obvious, but most of the time it is not.
The hollow spaces in your walls are perfect for cockroaches, ladybugs, boxelder bugs, and a whole host of other bugs and animals. But what you can’t see can hurt you, your family, your pets, your home, and your belongings. Consider getting ongoing pest services for 2017 and get vital protection from the things unseen.
