Around this time of year new homeowners get settled into properties before the start of the school. While preceding inspections may have revealed infestation or prior damage from pests, new residents should err on the side of caution from the moment they take ownership.

Unpacking, renovations, and getting established in a new area typically takes precedence, though many homeowners are shocked when their new home is also home to unwanted tenants that need evicting. From carpenter ants to termites, mice to small wildlife, on occasion required home inspections can miss the tell-tale signs of infestation – putting a damper on those upcoming housewarming parties.

Red Flags
You’ve been handed the key to an empty house. But is it really unoccupied? As a new homeowner, an empty house can be pretty revealing. Take a look around to see if you spot any of these red flags.

  • Holes in walls, floorboards, and cabinetry
  • Gnaw marks, wood shavings, and ripped or chewed screens
  • Brittle or crumbling wood (stairs, window sills, guard rails, eves)
  • Collection of sticks and paper shavings in attics and basements
  • Small pellet-like droppings in kitchens or near food sources
  • Insects flocking in a specific area
