HomeBlogA Pest Inspection Checklist – Areas We’ll Be Checking

When it comes to pest inspections, our qualified inspectors at Brown Pest Control understand the importance of going above and beyond. We know that pests can infiltrate even the most unexpected areas of your property, which is why our inspections extend far beyond the obvious spots.

A Pest Inspection Checklist - Areas We'll Be Checking

In this blog, we’ll take you through our comprehensive pest inspection checklist, highlighting the key areas where we’ll be paying special attention.

  1. Crawlspace and Subfloor. Crawlspaces can easily harbor pest nests and burrows, especially if they are damp environments. Our inspectors will be crawling under your home to check the foundation, insulation, and structural wood in this area for any signs of termites, ants, or wood-boring pests. We’ll also probe the subfloor to listen and look for pest activity
  2. Attic. Attics are prone to pest issues due to their warmth and seclusion. Our inspectors will be on the lookout for droppings from animals like squirrels or bats. We’ll also check insulation, rafters, and roof decking for signs of damage or activity.
  3. Basement. Dark, damp, and often cluttered, basements create an ideal environment for pests. During the pest inspection, we’ll meticulously inspect your basement, focusing on areas where pests commonly hide, such as behind stored items, in cracks, or along the foundation.
  4. Garage and Outbuildings. Pests don’t limit themselves to the main structure of your home. Garages and outbuildings can also fall victim to infestations, potentially compromising the overall integrity of your property. It’s essential that we examine these areas, checking for signs of pest activity and recommending appropriate measures to prevent future invasions.
  5. Potential Entry Points. Doors, windows, and any holes or gaps in siding or foundations provide easy access for pests to invade your home. Therefore, they must be identified during the pest inspection and sealed afterward. Furthermore, we’ll monitor outdoor areas for burrows or potential entry points along your fence to determine where pests might be gaining entrance.
