General information

Excess moisture...

    Run those dehumidifiers to remove the excess moisture from interior areas during the rainy season.

Warmer days are near.

   
    The days are getting warmer and warmer.   This is the time of year for spider and insect season.   Timing is everything...Call your Pest Pounders for your seasonal treatment.

Repairs..

Check your crawlspace vents to see if they need repair.  This will help keep the rodents from entering the structure.

Screen your deck!




Putting a deck on the property that is close to the ground, requires a bit of planning for live animals and rodents.  Be sure to install some mesh screening around and you will be able to keep animals from living underneath.

Be Smart

     I hear of nightmare cases from everyday homeowners, how they had someone basically rob them of money, and Trust.  These guys give all of us real professionals who take their work seriously, a bad name.  They ruin the trust of the public and give the pest control industry as a whole, a bad name.  Truth is a good majority of these cases could be prevented.  Be smart, make sure the company you hire is licensed, and insured.  Be sure the technician that comes to do the work is certified by the state.  Ask to see their green card, their state certification card.  If they can't show you it, for any reason,  REFUSE SERVICE!

Think Exterior?

      This is the time of year to think about the exterior of the home.  Putting down the barrier treatment now can make a difference in the pest activity inside your home in the coming months.  

Spring! Into action!

   Now with the spring season slowly coming in, so do the bugs begin to move around and forage.  Keep the centipedes, earwigs, spiders, pill bugs, sow bugs, and the rest of the early season moisture related insects to a minimum.  Call you favorite pest professional and get those treatments done...

Be Proactive...

      As spring approaches and the snow begins to melt, thawing the ground.  The bugs will begin to start moving after a very long winter.  Carpenter ants, centipedes, and spiders will become active again, foraging for food.  Get your treatments in early before you get a major problem.





Seal Those Cracks & Gaps

     Get ready to begin thinking about the spring season and the exterior maintenance of your property.  Spring is the beginning of the bug season.   Get a jump on sealing those small gaps and cracks where the bugs have easy entry inside.  









Crawlspace Care

     Crawlspace areas are often overlooked for care and maintenance.   They are usually dark, loaded with cob webs, and limited with the amount of space to move or do repairs or work in. However pests love these protected, sheltered areas, especially in the cold winter months.  Keep the vents sealed in winter- helps keep the water pipes from freezing and seals rodents out.  Make sure there are no water leaks.  If the dryer vent is running inside the crawlspace, be sure it is secure.
