PVAs are common use areas or storage areas that provide food, water, and relatively undisturbed shelter for pests. A good example in your home would be your kitchen (specifically, behind/under appliances, under/around the kitchen sink, and food storage cabinets) or bathroom. The pests we generally look for include cockroaches, mice, spiders, ants, silverfish, and occasionally crickets.
Some PVAs inside schools include: kitchens & cafeterias dry food storage,art centers, faculty lounges, custodial storage closets, concession areas, and vending machines.
