When is the last time you had a home pest inspection?
Last year? Five years ago? Ten years ago? 20 years ago? The average first-time homeowner may never have their home inspected for pests until there is an issue.
Although a pest inspection is required for most mortgages, the pest control firm isn’t contracted to provide remedies. An inspection doesn’t mean a pesticide application is needed. It is designed to give information about the conducive conditions that contribute to pests being around your home. This is a minimal cost for peace of mind.
That’s where Horizon Pest Solutions steps in, and SOLUTIONS are the name of the game.
Inspections for general household pests take between 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Some homes take longer to inspect based on square footage, number of outbuildings, property layout, or hard-to-access areas. Criteria for inspections include potential entry points at ground and roof level, vegetation too close to the home, rodent burrows, excessive moisture conditions, damage to guttering, soffits, or concrete, and many other items.
During the inspection, your certified pest professional will search for insects and other nuisance pests that can cause damage to the structures on your property and create health hazards. Common structural concerns are damage caused by termites, wood-boring beetles, carpenter ants, and carpenter bees. Mosquitoes, cockroaches, ticks, and rodents can cause health concerns.
Insects and other pests get into your house by entering though, or causing, structural damage to your home. Seasonal and nuisance pests like Asian Ladybeetles, boxelder bugs, crickets, ants, and many types of flies can best be remedied by sealing cracks and openings on the exterior of your home, including crawlspace accesses. A limited pesticide application around window and door frames, at soffits, and under the edge of siding or masonry can help prevent these pests from coming into your home.
Mosquitoes love family BBQs as much as we do. Would you be surprised to know that there is a botanical solution that is safe for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators? It’s true!
