Stop Pests in Their Tracks

Stop Pests in Their Tracks

As pest management professionals we recommend the following to our customers to prevent infestations and to make your home less attractive to wood destroying pests. Preventive practices include:

  1. Remove wet or repair water damaged wood and sheet rock
  2. Remove all wood that is in contact with soil
  3. Wood should be separated from soil by at least 18″
  4. Seal cracks in masonry to block entryways
  5. Do not bury wood or tree stumps on the building lot
  6. Move firewood, scrap wood, and lumber away from the home
  7. Remove vegetation and mulch from touching the foundation
  8. Avoid using foam insulation on foundation walls when possible
  9. Fix moisture problems: roof, wall and plumbing leaks. Run your de-humidifier when necessary
