Every year pests become a problem as they try to enter homes across the area. Ants, spiders, and more are trying to stay out of the cold winters, out of the spring rains, and are in search of water during drought conditions. Pest control around homes can keep over 180 different species of insects away from the perimeter of a home. At The Pest Guys we offer this service with our Perimeter Pest Control applications.
What is Perimeter Pest Control?
Perimeter pest control is an insecticide application that is sprayed around the perimeter outside of the home. This application acts as a barrier that not only kills any pests present while spraying, but also repels insects from traveling within the area that has been sprayed. This application has a residual of 30-60 days depending on the weather; during very rainy periods it may not last as long, while dry conditions allow for a longer period of protection.
When Should Perimeter Pest Control be applied?
When it comes to perimeter pest control, like most pest control applications, timing is critical. It is beneficial to spray the area before the pests become a problem inside the home. It is a lot easier to prevent an infestation than it is to treat after the fact.
It is also important to keep perimeter pest control constant. Following the proper application schedule each year will help make the home look less appealing to the insects. Typically the proper schedule includes a spring application, a summer application, a late summer application, and a fall application.
Sum it up
To sum it up, perimeter pest control applications not only treat for insects that are trying to get into your home, but also to prevent future invasions from pests. Following a schedule each year will help with your fight to keep these bugs out of your home.
It is always a good idea to consult with a lawn care professional and ask any questions you may have. Look around, ask friends or family, and research companies on the Better Business Bureau to find a company that you can trust.
