Regarding pests, it is better to act sooner rather than later. A slight presence can quickly 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 bugs 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, please keep rooms free of piles of clothing or garbage; you must sweep and vacuum daily.
Avoid any standing water.
Pests love a good pool of standing water. Eliminating or decreasing any spots inside or outside your home that create puddles of standing water can significantly reduce the number 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.
Inspect the inside and outside of your home thoroughly and fill/seal any cracks or gaps. 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
Cat Faced Spider
The Cat-Face Spider is an Orb Weaver, as their intricate webs suggest. The Cat-Face Spider tends to make its webs near lights and corners along the outside buildings. Full-grown females are large and have a combination of odd projections on the abdomen and dark indentation markings that some say resemble the ears and eyes of a cat. Despite their large size and bizarre appearance, Cat-Face Spiders are not venomous. It has been our experience that homes close to the Snake or Boise River have more issues with these feline-faced spiders.
As with most other spiders, regular pest control treatments and exclusion methods are essential to keeping the Cat-Face Spider off and out of your home.
