Will a backyard playground set attract pests?

Backyard playground equipment is notoriously pest-friendly for a few reasons. First, it provides pests with shelter, and in many cases, dark areas where they can hide from predators. It also tends to go unused for large periods of time, allowing pests to get comfortable. It’s also hospitable to a number of different pests, and it’s not at all uncommon for homeowners to discover several unwanted visitors making use of their backyard playset. The best way to keep them away is to contact a professional pest control company and have them treat the area seasonally. When your children outgrow it, we recommend that you have it taken down to make your property less hospitable to pests.
