Guess what takes the top spot? Rats. They’re vectors of disease, so if you notice signs of droppings or gnawing on your electric cables, call in the pest control straight away.
Other common pests can vary in their danger and inconvenience. For instance, flies are very common and carry a wide range of diseases, whereas spiders are harmless yet cause a huge amount of fear. Some insects themselves aren’t problematic but their eggs are, such as moths and woodworm.
