WHERE EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE IS ROUTINE
Seal cracks in your home's exterior to help keep pests like ants, spiders and cockroaches from getting inside.
Be sure all doors and windows are properly sealed with tight-fitting screens and weather stripping.
Don't leave uncovered food sitting out. It can attract flies that might land on it and spread harmful bacteria.
Consider storing clothing in plastic boxes or pouches to prevent fabric pests from getting to them.
Ensure that the ceiling and crawl spaces have sufficient ventilation. Proper ventilation creates an environment unsuitable for cockroaches and other pests. It also improves the heating and cooling efficiency of the home.
Do not allow pet food to sit out overnight, indoors or outdoors and do not feed pets more than they can eat.
Remove any piles of debris, stones, bricks, etc., around your home. They serve as a harbourage for pests, especially rodents.
With their shear-like mandibles, worker termites can destroy the wood in your home, hollowing out wooden beams, gutting walls and ruining floors. They've even been known to chew through vinyl, linoleum, PVC pipe and underground cables.
There are some things that you can do yourself to help reduce the risk of a termite infestation:
Repair any roof or plumbing leaks as soon as possible. These leaks can allow termites to survive above ground in a house.
Eliminate any timber-to-soil contact around your foundation and remove wood debris near your home.
Prevent mulch and soil from touching the siding of your home. This build-up makes it much easier for termites to enter.
Store firewood away from your home.
Seal nail holes and cracks in exposed wood to help prevent easy access by drywood termites.
Contact your local licenced and professional pest management company, ProPest Pest Management Services , to regularly inspect your home. This will help detect termite activity and allow for prompt and proper treatment.
