When building a new house, it is important to recognize that although we have pressure treated wood and powerful insecticides, our homes are not always safe from pests. With time, the chemicals leach out of the wood, and insecticides wear off. It is important to have the ground around the home’s foundation treated during the construction phase.
Pest control professionals cannot spray around your foundation as effectively once the home is actually up. Therefore, pretreatment is always advised. Other pests like spiders, silverfish, bedbugs, cockroaches, ants, and more will move in without leaving a deposit.
Problem Solved has specific solutions to each of those bugs once they enter your home, but to keep pests out in the first place, Problem Solved will apply a spray to the interior of your home, and the exterior. Pretreatment is the best plan of attack because once the bug is inside your home, removing them becomes much more difficult.
If you are moving into a previously owned home, pretreatment is still an option. Instead of spraying foundation, Problem Solved can spray around your home and within so the bugs will be stopped at your doorstep.
Just as important as spraying your home, it is important to check what you bring into your home. If you have old boxes from your basement, it is critical to look inside of them before they leave your house. Long sleeves and gloves (preferably rubber are recommended) will protect you from spiders, but most importantly brown recluses. They will most likely be hiding under lids, in the groove around the outside, but not exclusively there. They could be amongst the contents of the box also. By carefully inspecting everything in boxes, you will ensure that once in your new house you won’t have to deal with a pest infestation.
