In making your home comfortable for your family, you also make it attractive to insects searching for a pleasant environment. Some insects enter through open doors and holes in window screens, but even greater numbers may enter through untreated openings that you don’t even think about. A barrier treatment of your home’s perimeter can help protect your home against pest invasion.
PERIMETER PEST CONTROL
Insects can invade your home through cracks in the foundation, loose dryer vents, partially open mortar joints, loose-fitting window frames, drains, sump pumps, or any other openings from the outside. Some crawl across your door sills and slide under ill-fitting storm doors or entry doors. Successful perimeter pest control depends on the application of a barrier treatment to all possible points of entry.
PREVENTION IS THE KEY
Battling an infestation of pests can be frustrating, expensive and time-consuming. Avoid problems by having a barrier treatment applied to your home throughout the year. Seasonal treatments are important, because newly active insects in the spring will be heading inside to avoid sudden cold snaps or find a handy source of food for the season, Summer treatments fight newly hatched crickets and fleas. In the fall, barrier treatments will prevent spiders and millipedes from getting inside to seek shelter from the cold.
