Everyone wants to make their home a comfortable place for their family. However, your family’s desire for comfort also leads to a very comfortable environment for insects searching for their families too. Most insects gain access to your home through untreated openings that you don’t even think about. Placing a treatment barrier around your home’s perimeter can help protect your home against pests gaining access to your home.
Common access points for insects to enter your home are through foundation cracks, loose dryer vents, partially open mortar joints, loose-fitting window frames, drains, sump pumps or any other openings from the outside. Some insects crawl across your door sills and slide under poorly fitting storm doors or entry doors. For perimeter pest control to be successful and effective, it depends on the application of a barrier treatment to all possible points of entry.
Once you have an insect or pest infestation, it can be frustrating, expensive, and time-consuming to battle. It is much less costly or frustrating to have a barrier treatment applied to your home throughout the year to avoid and prevent an infestation. 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 new season. Summer treatments combat newly hatched crickets and fleas. Fall treatments will prevent spiders and millipedes from getting inside to seek shelter from the cold.
