Unless you’re an entomologist, the thought of sharing your home with insects might not be a pleasant one. But the truth is, there are probably more insects living in your house right now than you realize. 

In fact, the average home has more than 100 different types of bugs living in it!

So, let’s take a closer look at some of the most common insects you’ll find in your home so you can take pest control steps to get rid of them once and for all. 

Bedroom Hiding Spots for Insects

From the cracks in your floorboards to the gaps between your furniture, there are countless hiding spots for bugs to take refuge in your bedroom. Plus, bedrooms are often full of dust, which provides a food source for many types of insects. And finally, most bedrooms are located near other rooms in the house (such as the kitchen or bathroom), making it easy for pests to travel from one room to another.


The bathroom is one of the most commonly used rooms in any home, and it’s also one of the most likely places to find pests. From ants and cockroaches to spiders and silverfish, a variety of creatures are drawn to the humid, dark environments found in bathrooms. In many cases, these pests are simply looking for a source of water or shelter. However, they can also be attracted by the food left behind on counters and in sinks.
