Don't Like Pests? Then Avoid Living Near These Places...

Pests, including different types of bugs and rodents, can be found all over the place. While no one particularly enjoys pests, they like to invade our homes and make themselves cozy, especially if the home isn’t well maintained. This can be a problem because pests tend to carry diseases and pose a myriad of health risks to humans.

As this exterminator explains, pests generally infest areas with abundant sources of food because it helps to ensure their survival. With that in mind, the overpopulated city of New York is an ideal place for pests to make themselves at home.

Old buildings, especially those built before World War II, are havens for a wide variety of pests because they aren’t built up to code and have lots of nooks and crannies for pests to hide. The exterminator also recalls a time when he visited an apartment in which the bed and walls were covered with cockroaches.

If you, like most people, don’t enjoy living with pests, then you may not want to live in an overpopulated area such as New York City. More importantly, you’ll want to live away from old buildings, parks, and restaurants and avoid living on the bottom floor of apartment complexes since pests generally move from the ground-up.

As always, you can prevent pest infestations no matter where you live by maintaining your living space and keeping it clean. Leaving trash, dirty dishes, or clutter out in the open will provide an inviting space for pests to make their way into your home.
