Pest Control The Problem




Pests are a reality of everyday life. There are over 94,000 species of pests in the United States. No matter how clean you keep your home, pests will find a way in. Pests can not only cause physical damage to your home, they can also spread germs, irritate allergies and generally make the environment in your home uncomfortable. 


Common pest control techniques can often compound your pest problem by re-routing pest activity. The misapplication of chemicals in the home can cause the formation of new nests, as well as potentially contaminating your environment. 



Pests systematically seek out entry points and invade your home to obtain food and water. Once pests find a way in your home, your home provides a perfect environment for them to flourish. It is important to understand the areas of your home that are most susceptible to pest activity. 




  Exterior

The exterior of your home is the pest's natural environment. The exterior of your property contains numerous active pest harborage areas. These areas support pest activity providing access to moisture and a fertile environment to live and breed. 

EXTERIOR HOTSPOTS
 

• Trees 
• Bushes 
• Mulch 
• Grass 
• Decaying vegetation 
• Firewood
 
  Perimeter

These are areas that are immediately outside of the home. Small stress cracks and improperly sealed windows, doors, etc. can provide easy access to the interior of your home. 

PERIMETER HOTSPOTS
 

• Foundation 
• Windows 
• Doors 
• Thresholds 
• Soffits 
• Eaves 
• Plumbing 
• Electrical ingress points 
• Vents 
• Downspouts 
• Garage
 
  Interior

Your home's interior can provide the food and shelter pests need to thrive. Pests can easily gain access to your home through improperly sealed attics, crawl spaces or gaps in plumbing services. Once inside, pests thrive by seeking out food that is improperly stored or not secured and by seeking out moisture sources such as under sinks, in bathrooms and kitchens. 

INTERIOR HOTSPOTS
 
• Improperly sealed attics or crawl spaces 
• Food not stored properly or secured 
• Gaps in plumbing 
• Under sinks/moisture sources
