While you want to keep bugs outside (and as far from your home as possible), pests are likely to make their way in for some of the very reasons you love your home. It’s warm, dry, and has access to food. But the last thing you want to worry about is sharing your home with creepy crawlies like spiders, centipedes, and earwigs.
Fortunately, there are pest control solutions that will keep the bugs away. Perimeter pest control is an effective answer to your problems.
If you’re wondering how perimeter pest control works to keep bugs away, then we’re here to answer your questions. We’ll explain what you can expect from this service and how it works.
But first, let us explain exactly what perimeter pest control is all about.
Perimeter pest control is different from hiring an exterminator, who will perform pest control inside of your home. This may be warranted if you already have a significant infestation inside.
At Oasis Turf & Tree, our perimeter pest control service is performed entirely outside of the home, which eliminates the hassle of having to be home while it’s being done (as would be the case with an exterminator). It’s also nice to keep the products outside of your home rather than having chemicals applied inside, as would have to happen if it gets to the point of an infestation.
But the key benefit is that perimeter pest control is all about prevention. The idea is to keep bugs outside of your house in the first place so that you don’t end up dealing with a major problem inside.
As a preventative measure, perimeter pest control ends up being a lot less expensive than having to deal with a full-blown problem. For only a small investment you can prevent a very costly infestation, making it well worth it.
Perimeter pest control works by creating a barrier around your home. A pest control technician will apply the product three feet up and three feet out from the perimeter of your property.
A pest control technician should also make recommendations on other ways to keep the pests out. For instance, if you have plant material that is touching your home and might serve as a “bridge” inside, those plants should be trimmed back. A technician should also look for entry points like cracks that can be sealed.
As you think about how perimeter pest control works and you think of it as a barrier, it’s also important to understand that you may see some increased activity inside of your home as the product starts working. This is because the pests no longer have a free passage in and out of your home as they previously did.
When homeowners first get started with perimeter pest control we usually tell them to prepare to set some traps inside of the home just during that initial period to get rid of any insects that were already inside when the spray is applied.
Going forward, you can now prevent a great majority of pests from coming in.
As far as how perimeter pest control works, it’s also important to recognize that not all services are the same.
The way in which pest control product is applied can have an impact on the results. At Oasis Turf & Tree, we are targeting our application of product to the property, using a spray that can even get into cracks and crevices where pests may try to make their way inside.
We’re using a liquid product from a large tank that is mixed with water. This stays put in cracks and crevices and on dirt, mulch, and rock much better than the misting applications that many perimeter pest control companies in Cincinnati, Dayton, OH, and Northern Kentucky are using.
The effectiveness of the application is an important factor that simply cannot be overlooked.
At the end of the day, it’s important to choose a company that you feel confident will deliver the best results.
At Oasis Turf & Tree, our perimeter pest control service gets very good results on common pests like ants, spiders, centipedes, and others. We’re not a pushy company and certainly not one that tries to upsell our clients on every possible service we offer. But we like our clients to know that this is an option and if it’s something they’re interested in, we can provide the service.
Our program is thorough and effective, and generally costs less than what others charge. That’s because we use some of the same high-quality products as those that exterminators utilize on a regular basis to treat the exterior of your home.
The bottom line is that you don’t have to let pests take away your peace of mind.
By letting us create a barrier around your home, we can help restore your peace of mind that pests will stay outside where they belong. You can cast aside your worries and get back to life as usual.
