  • Firewood stacked directly on the ground,
  • Old lumber or junk piles,
  • Gardens and flower beds with heavy mulch,
  • Untrimmed shrubs and shrubs growing next to a foundation,
  • Unmowed and unkept lawns, abandoned lots and fields with tall vegetation,
  • Pond and stream banks with abundant debris and trash,
  • Cluttered basements and attics with a rodent, bird or bat problem,
  • Feed storage areas in barn haylofts where rodents abound and
  • Crawl space under house,
