Preventative Maintenance Program Keeps Pests Away Year Round
By Chris Williams on September 25, 2014.
Every fall, we have the same problem with these brown bugs that appear out of nowhere and climb up our house to get inside. Every year we call an exterminator but it doesn’t really do much good. We’ve been told that they’re some kind of seed bugs, and since they come from the trees in the neighborhood, there’s really not much we can do. L. N., Stratham, NH
There definitely are some changes you can make around the exterior of your home that will help to keep western conifer seed bugs (and other fall-invading bugs) out. You have to try to screen, or seal, or caulk any openings that the bugs can use to sneak inside. Admittedly that’s difficult and not always totally successful. See Keeping Seed Bugs Out This Fall.
The problem with calling an exterminator after you start seeing the seed bugs inside is that it’s mostly too late. If you’re seeing a few inside, you can bet that there are many more already in your attic or hiding inside wall voids and other places. Once they’re inside, they’ll hide until spring.
Our Preventative Maintenance Program Works
At Colonial Pest, we have a better answer and the best part is that you don’t even have to think about it or plan ahead. Our Preventative Maintenance Program insures that you are protected from any and all pests, year round. When you’re part of our Program, you receive two scheduled pest barrier treatments per year, and more service if you need it.
Our outside preventative treatments are precisely planned to intercept pests at critical times of the year, when they are trying to enter your home. Our preventative barrier treatment is around the outside of your home, so you don’t even have to be home. And since the treatment is outside, you and your family are not subjected to pesticides, odor, mess, or inconvenience.
Year Round Pest Protection that You Don’t Have to Think About
Best of all, you don’t even need to call us or anticipate your pest problems. Our trained technicians know when to expect seasonal pest activity in your area. Six months later you receive another preventative treatment, so your home has constant protection from pests, year round.
Even better, we have so much confidence in our Preventative Maintenance Program that if any pests do show up in your home, your service calls and treatment are free in most cases. No more paying for each pest problem as it occurs, and no more paying for follow-up visits. You know exactly what your annual pest control costs will be, no matter what happens.
