When it comes to pests, it is better to act sooner than later. A small presence can soon turn into an infestation if left unchecked. For that reason, we recommend our Quarterly Pest Control Program. With this program, we will treat in and around your house routinely throughout the year to preserve and protect your home. Not only does this program handle any existing presence of pests, but more importantly it prevents them from entering your home. Protect your home from pests today by contacting the experts at Barrier Pest Control.
HOW TO KEEP PESTS OUT OF YOUR HOUSE
Although it is near impossible to get rid of an existing pest infestation without professional help, there are some things you can do to minimize/prevent the presence of any unwanted guests in your home. Here are some steps you can take to keep pests out of your house:
Keep a well-groomed yard.
Regular trimming, pruning, and cutting of any lawn, trees, or shrubbery will minimize any real estate bugs will have close to the house.
Any piles of wood, construction materials, or other debris should be distanced from the home or better yet cleaned up. As for indoors, keep rooms free of piles of clothing or garbage, and sweeping and vacuuming daily is a must.
Avoid any standing water.
Pests love a good pool of standing water. By eliminating or decreasing any spots inside or outside your home that create puddles of standing water can greatly decrease the amount of pests you have.
Decrease the amount of outside house lights on at night.
As you may be aware, bright lights attract insects at night. Another way to minimize attracting insects is to install yellow-hued lights. Avoid any bright-white lights as they will attract more insects.
Seal any cracks/gaps in your home.
Do a thorough inspection inside and outside of your home and fill/seal any cracks or gaps you may find. Doing so will ensure pests won’t enter your home easily.
Hire an experienced pest control specialist.
Not only can we eradicate an existing infestation, but we also offer pest preventative services. We can come to your home routinely and ensure pests don’t invade your space.
Our Customers Love Us! See What They Are Saying.
I recently decided to use Barrier Lawn and Pest services as I became acquainted with their services through my place of work. The initial contact with Mike Dean was personable and informative. Scheduling of the service was also very accommodating as I was not given a 2-4 hour window as I had experienced with other companies. The technician arrived on time and reviewed the service with my wife before beginning. Upon completion, my wife was given the company's contact information in case we had any future questions. This experience was very pleasant and we would recommend Barrier's services to any friend or neighbor.View All Testimonials
This Month's Featured Pest
Against popular belief, Cockroaches are quite common in Idaho. You can find them in homes, restaurants and a multitude of other businesses. In general, they prefer warmer areas, which is why we often find them tucked up under kitchen stoves, dishwashers and refrigerators. But they are also found in cabinets, cupboards, drawers, and pantries. They multiply quickly, producing anywhere between 600-800 eggs per year per one female. They contaminate food supplies which results in thousands of dollars in damage each year, carry diseases, and cause illnesses in those in close contact. Treatment is necessary in order to take care of cockroaches and must be done as soon as you notice activity. If you’re needing help with cockroach control, give Barrier Pest Control a call at 208-463-4533. We’d be happy to help!More Pests
