Insects and other pests are searching for a convenient food and water source and favorable climates. Most insects are desperately in need of moisture for survival, and the dry heat is almost unbearable. With the dry heat comes fewer water sources and with less water means less food. Desperate to escape the dryness and requiring food and water for survival, they will find the nooks and crannies to slip into your home or business that has more preferable climate, especially close to leaky faucets or places where the humidity might be enhanced like the bathroom. Water and food sources are easy enough to find with crumbs left behind, or an assortment of options that appeal to their taste buds. Some insects like sweets and proteins where others flourish with book binding and paper products. In any case your home or business has what they need.
