A Few Ways the Pros Keep Your Home Insect-Free

Musty basements, messy kitchens, or old wood floorboards are not the only place insects reside. Lucky for you, Zip Zap can use a specialized treatment to rid your home of bugs. Listed below are a few of the treatments available for different areas of your property.

Interior treatment should be as inconspicuous as possible. You should smell nothing and be able to go about your daily routine after our trained technician has applied the eco-safe insecticide around the exterior floorboards. This will treat pests scurrying underneath the floorboards and they consequently carry the insecticide back to their nest where it spreads to the remaining insects.

A prevention used on the perimeter of the exterior of your home prevents insects from migrating into your home. The insecticide creates a barrier on your foundation, exterior of your home, plants, and the soil surrounding your home. It provides a protection from swarming insects trying to seek shelter in the winter. Preventative treatment is important in the fall before the cold weather sets in if you want to keep your home insect free during the winter months.

Eaves sweeping is included in this list of services needed to protect your home from pesky insects. Pests are easily spotted in your home or yard but easily missed when the insects are hiding in your eaves (the bottom edge of your roof). A brush is used by our trained technician to rid your eaves of spiders and their eggs. Sweeping the eaves also eliminates the spiders’ food source and aids in the prevention of them entering your home. Wasps like to reside in eaves as well. However, simply sweeping the nest away will not cause the wasp to be removed permanently. Wasps leave behind pheromones which attract other wasps to their location even after the nest has been removed. Our trained technician will eliminate the traces of pheromones left behind to ensure the wasps will not return.

Burrowing into the cracks and crevices of your home is was insects prefer. Our trained technicians will treat all cracks, crevices, and weep holes in and around your foundation, to prevent insects from entering your home.
