Because of the pandemic, a lot of businesses have to shut down their operations and sent their employees home for remote work. With more people being at home, more food and water are stored. Food and water are sources that many pests are looking for, so they tend to take shelter in homes that have them. With this in mind, here are some pests that homeowners should watch out for during the COVID-19 pandemic:


Flies love anything that decays. This is the reason they like spoiled food, garbage, manure, and dead animals. They depend on the decomposition process for food and moisture. The pandemic has left a lot of garbage bins not regularly collected, making them the perfect breeding for flies. If you have a fly infestation on your property, don’t hesitate to contact a provider of Austin pest control services. Professionals do their job with the utmost care and precision.


Homes with busy owners can have unclean kitchen and dining tables. As they work from home, balancing both chores and online work can be difficult. If not cleaned up immediately, crumbs and spills can be left for ants to devour. A single ant can make a scent trail for others to smell.

Rats and Mice

These rodents like to settle in places where they have access to food and water. Also, they will look for warm and comfortable places to stay. Unfortunately, rats and mice can carry and spread diseases. They especially like exposed garbage bins, so make sure to keep your bins closed. Also, these rodents are attracted to leaking faucets and pools of water.


These pests also like warm environments. They tend to be in homes because of their continuous source of food and water. And even if your water sources are sealed, cockroaches can still drink on towels and wet sponges. Thus, ensure your place is always clean and eliminate any clutter where they can easily hide.
