A good exterminator knows that there are variety of ways to eliminate pests, and constantly considers which method will be most effective. In many cases, exclusion programs work best—that is, stopping insects and rodents from entering proactively. It might sound easier than it actually is, however, as exclusion programs require an understanding of the specific pest’s behavior, as well as their surrounding environment.
If insects or rodents are finding their way into your home or business, you need to identify exactly what type of pest they are. Every species of creature has its own particular instincts that lead them into your building. At Comfort Pest Control, we have expert knowledge on what attracts problems, whether it be sources of light, food, or materials. We can also examine an environment and local trends to determine what might turn into a problem in the future.
The most important aspect of insect and rodent exclusion programs is the inspection of the building in question. A good exterminator will leave no stone unturned, closely examining entry points. The next step, of course, is eliminating each entry point. This could involve anything from closing gaps in the foundation to adding a screened barrier to ducts. A line must be traced from the source to the destination, and that line must be interrupted and diverted away from the home.
Another key component of any effective insect and rodent exclusion program is the elimination of sources of attraction for pests. Recommendations may be given to the home or business owner based on the insect or rodent that’s been a problem. Often, a deep cleaning of an area or more sanitary habits can go a long way towards resolving the problem.
