During the winter, creeping little creatures like spiders, ants, beetles, silverfish, and more generally stay out of sight. But, as the snow starts to melt and the weather warms up, these pests will start looking for a place of refuge from the rain showers. Your home or place of business makes for the perfect shelter.
Thankfully, you don’t have to share with these insects. By starting perimeter pest control from LawnMatters in the spring, you’ll lay down a defense that can be maintained all season long.
The Horror of Infestations
Shrubs, mulch, flowers, even yard decorations by a foundation provide the perfect cover for insects looking to find a way inside. These features make your property look more attractive, so eliminating them isn’t a great option. But pests will use them against you in their quest to get into a building.
It’s no wonder pests are attracted to your house or business. The building provides quite the life:
- Shelter from the elements
- Cover from predators
- Food supplies
For all these reasons, little critters will stop at nothing to get inside. Once they’ve taken up residence, these insects can live just about anywhere, destroying furniture, walls, and more as they feed and multiply. They can also create dirty living conditions, ruining your home or reflecting poorly on your business.
Once you have an infestation, the problem becomes more difficult to manage. Not only does it require more effort to kill off and remove the pests, you might need to repair damage to the structure or items inside.
The Advantages of Perimeter Control
As the weather warms, insects will start looking for ways to get into your home or business. They’ll either find an opening in the foundation, or climb up the foundation to locate another opening. With perimeter pest control, an invisible barrier kills these creatures on contact, so they can’t take up residence with you.
Because perimeter pest control is done on the exterior of the building, you don’t need to move furniture or other items. It means your pets and children aren’t exposed to the spray. In addition, you don’t even need to be around when our technician applies the spray, since we do it all from the exterior.
Our technicians all go through extensive training and are licensed to apply perimeter pest control. They make applications on schedule, so your house or business gets the protection necessary to keep pests outside, where they belong. Contact us today to make an appointment.
