Perimeter

A) Foundation

 

This is probably the most important entry point to your house. This is where most pests will enter a structure. Early spring ant treatment will help keep them from starting a colony inside your house. In late summer and early fall, rodents make their way into a home to seek shelter for the upcoming winter. Exterior bait stations will intercept wandering rodents before they find entry points. Many other insects such as crickets, earwigs, spiders, millipedes and centipedes will enter a home through small cracks in the foundation, gaps in the siding and utility entry points. Many of these entry points can be permanently sealed.  NPWC can also provide a protective barrier to prevent insects and rodents from entering.

 

B) Windows and window screens

 

Even the highest quality windows are susceptible to flying insects finding small gaps to use as entry points. Wasps and bees will often nest outside windows. Ladybugs and stinkbugs will enter through window gaps in the fall to winter over. We will inspect and treat all windows, as necessary, to stop infestations before they have time to develop.

 

C) Attic vents

 

Like windows, they can be entry points for insects and, if not screened properly, wildlife. These entry points are inspected every visit.

 

D) Peaks and soffits

 

A very common nesting site for bees and wasps. Nests are removed before they have time to develop. Also, in the fall, this is where stinkbugs and ladybugs will likely enter an attic for winter.

 

E) Garage doors

 

Due to their construction, most garage doors are not capable of keeping rodents out. Bait stations and careful inspection will keep garages rodent free.
