General Overview
Most of these pests live outside of buildings and come indoors only on occasion. Although they may enter in large numbers, they usually do very little damage and are considered a nuisance simply because of their presence. Some factors that may cause these pests to move into structures include environmental extremes such as unusual dry spells, excessive rainfall, poor drainage adjacent to the foundation, onset of winter, or presence of some unusual food source within the structure. The presence of one or a few individuals of some species indoors may not really be a problem, but only an occurrence. In this type of situation, it may not necessarily indicate a need to institute a substantial pest control program.

The house mouse is small and produces up to 8 litters per year with 4-7 offspring per litter. a small, slender body. The ears are large, and the tail is as long as the head and body together. The fur is usually dark gray on the back and light gray on the belly, but many color variation are possible.The roof rat produces 4-6 litters per year with 4-8 offspring per litter. Their fur is grayish black to solid black, and the belly varies from white to all gray. The snout is pointed; the ears are large, and the tail is long and reaches the snout when pulled over the body.The Norway rat is also known as the wharf rat. They produce 4-7 litters per year with 8-12 offspring per litter. They have a stocky body and course fur that ranges from reddish to grayish brown with white underparts.

Most centipedes live outdoors in damp area, such as under leaves, stones, boards, or tree bark or in mulch around outdoor plantings.If provoked, 
larger centipedes may bite, causing some pain and slight swelling.Smaller species are not large enough to penetrate human skin.Millipedes live outdoors in damp places, such as under  leaves and in mulch. In dry weather they will migrate from litter piles as the leaves dry,  and enter buildings in large numbers. This also occurs in lawns  containing thick thatch layers, or yards where large piles of leaves are present.Earwigs are recognized by the pinchers at the end of the abdomen. They are primarily scavengers on dead animal and plant material, but some are predatory.They are active at night, and some are attracted in large numbers to lights. They are often transported in potted plants, or other plant material.Silverfish are flattened, long and slender, broad at the front and tapering gradually toward the rear. The antennae are long and slender. Three long, 
appendages are found at the rear. They have a uniform silvery color over the top surface of their body. They can be found almost anywhere in a home.Scorpions are eight-legged carnivorous arthropods. They are nocturnal and find shelter during the day in cool underground holes or under rocks and come out at night to hunt and feed. Scorpion venom is usually harmless to humans; stings produce only local effects (such as pain, numbness, & swelling).
