Are you familiar with Murphy's Law? It is an old adage that simply means, "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong." If you've owned a home or raised a family for more than a few years, you know that there is a reason it is called Murphy's Law and not Murphy's Theory. It is best to leave as little to chance as possible.
Pests aren't just an irritation, they present serious threats for a family and for a home. Termites, carpenter ants, wood borers, and other wood-destroying insects can eat away at your equity from the inside out. Ticks, mosquitoes, rodents, cockroaches, and other disease-spreading pests can cause long-lasting health implications. Wasps, centipedes, and other stinging or biting pests can lead to hospital visits for those who are allergic. Each pest comes with its own list of threats. But most of the pests that get into homes share one thing in common; they spend some time near the foundation of a home before they become a threat.
Before cockroaches and rodents get into a home, they explore a foundation wall in search of gaps, cracks, and holes. Before ticks attach to pets, children, and adults, they hide in shaded locations near a home. Before mosquitoes bite, they hide in shrubs, bushes, and under decks. Before wasps sting, they usually establish a nest on the property. Do you see the pattern?
The best solution for guarding a home against pest threats is to reduce pests around the foundation perimeter. At All-American Pest Control, we have developed a program called Perimeter Plus, that provides protection for perimeters in three vital ways:
Perimeter Plus comes with routine visits from a professional pest control technician who knows what signs pests leave behind and what pest control products and methods work to manage the pests that are found. On the first pass around a routine perimeter, the technician will remove spider webs and wasp nests, and assess pest pressures.
On the second pass around the perimeter, the technician will apply a chemical barrier that will help to keep pests out. It is applied to the foundation, windows we can reach, trash cans, and garage door openings.
On the third pass, the technician will do a misting application. This addresses mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and other bugs that are hiding in the yard.
With Perimeter Plus, we address over 47 of Tennessee's most common household pests. Not only does this let homeowners get more enjoyment out of their yards, it helps to stop pests before they get into their homes.
Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Perimeter Plus helps to reduce the number of things that can go wrong by reducing the pests that do those wrong things. Pest control isn't just a quality of life upgrade, it is vital protection every family should have. And Perimeter Plus gets the job done.
