Ants, centipedes, earwigs, spiders, and wasps are some of the most common insects that plague homeowners in the Nashville area. No one wants these pests in their home! We understand and have the answer to prevent these insects from invading your space. Our perimeter pest control services are the answer to all of your pest problems.

The Benefits of Perimeter Pest Control

Perimeter pest control creates a barrier outdoors to prevent pests from entering your home. This is done by spraying around the perimeter of your foundation as well as spraying the entire yard. Perimeter pest control offers several benefits, including:

  • Protects against pest infestations for up to three months
  • Treatment is done outdoors, which means no chemicals are used inside the home
  • You do not need to be home when perimeter pest control is applied
  • Perimeter pest control can be done while lawncare is completed

How Does It Work?

Perimeter pest control is designed to prevent pests from entering your home. We apply pesticides around your foundation and landscape. On average, we treat three feet up your foundation and 3 feet out on the lawn. This is six feet around the perimeter, creating a protective barrier around the perimeter of your home. This perimeter includes the landscaped areas as well as the lawn.

The pesticide spray leaves a residue that helps deter insects from the area and kills those that come into the area. On average, you can expect the treatment to last for about three months.

How You Can Help Keep Insects Out of Your Home

Perimeter insect control is great; however, to prevent insects from entering your home, there are a few things you can do to help. First, you want to ensure your window and door screens are in good shape. You also want to check the door seals of all exterior doors. Avoid leaving any crumbs or food out as this can attract insects. Finally, keep all doors closed.

Perimeter Pest Control – Is It Worth It?

Many people wonder if preventative pest control is worth it. The answer is a resounding yes! Quarterly perimeter pest control is more affordable than waiting and then trying to overcome an infestation. In addition to this, perimeter pest control is a much safer option as all chemicals are kept outdoors compared to indoor treatments necessary for a pest infestation.
