Outside Pest Control
Today most of the professional pest control companies are only doing the outside of your home or business. This is actually a great idea as 99% of all your pest problems come from the great outdoors. What the pros are not doing for you is telling you what you need to do before they or you do an outside treatment around your home.
- Clean and or remove all debris and other pest habitat away from the base of the building, this includes but not limited to fire wood, children’s toys, bushes and other growth cut at least 12 inches away from the wall
- Check for any entry points into the building and closing them, you can do this by using expanding foam or Stuf-fit
- Cutting and trimming all vegetation around your home, including the lawn
- Remove all animals and or humans for at least 3 hours or until dry
These are just a sample of what you need to do before your treatment starts.
When you get ready to do the pest control treatment, start out with the best products you can afford, we do not really like many of the generics and only use the name brands at this time. Our products of choice are Demand cs
which we believe is the best for most pest problems including spiders. We will treat up under the eaves, behind the down spouts of the gutters, around all windows, doors and any other entry point into the house. We will also treat under the edge of the siding as this is one entry point that many pros will miss.
Once we have finished the basic spraying around your home we will apply Talstar PL
granule to the outside bedding and grassy area around the house. We apply Talstar PL
with a spreader to apply a band about 8 to 10 feet wide that starts at the base of the building. With these two products we feel you have one of the better outside perimeter pest control treatment for general pest problems. We use this treatment method for many ant, spider, scorpions, ticks and other pest problems.
Some specialized problems like ants we might use Termidor sc
as a treatment and or use a product like Talstar P
which is also a great ant product.
