Unfortunately, there are no “quick fix” solutions.

Proofing against pests and properly timed exterior treatments can provide relief but will not prevent entry of every single pest.

Here are some suggestions to help make your home less inviting to pests.

Sealing cracks and openings is one way to to help preventing pests from entering your home or business. Doing this in the spring and summer months prepares your property before adults begin searching for wintering sites. Cracks should be sealed around windows, doors, soffits, fascia boards, utility pipes and wires, etc. with caulk or other sealants. Common entry points can be eliminated by repairing damaged window screens and installing screening behind vents. Install tight-fitting door sweeps or thresholds at the base of all exterior entry doors.

While sealing cracks and openings helps, the approach is time-consuming and sometimes impractical.  Hiring Mosquito Squad professionals can help eliminate pest before they can ever enter your home.
