We have quite a variety of pests in Brentwood. Some come into our yards and bite or sting us. Some tunnel through wood or consume it one tiny little bite at a time. And, of course, there are the ones that get into our homes and become a nuisance, make us sick, or damage our belongings. When considering what type of pest control is right for your Brentwood home, one of the first things you need to consider is what kind of pests you want to control.
Pests That Come Into Your Yard To Bite Or Sting
If you're concerned about biting and stinging pests, such as mosquitoes, wasps, fire ants, ticks, and fleas, the type of pest control you're going to want is pest management for your yard. This begins with considering the attractants that lure these pests to your property. Here are some examples:
Removing standing water can deter mosquitoes and prevent reproduction.
Reducing moisture can make it more difficult for ticks and fleas to develop.
Removing unnecessary vegetation, particularly weeds with flowers can help to deter mosquitoes and wasps.
Taking steps to deter wildlife activity, such as fencing off voids underneath structures and securing your trash receptacles, can reduce ticks and fleas.
At All-American Pest Control, we offer mosquito misting services to repel and control mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. During routine visits, our service professionals inspect for wasp nests and remove them.
Pest That Damage The Wood Of Your Home
Move camp wood, scrap wood, dead branches, and other wood sources away from the exterior of your home, and elevate these if possible. This gets the wood up off the ground and makes it more difficult for pests to access.
Address any wood-to-soil contact, such as deck posts that go into the soil.
Remove tree stumps, logs, and trees with heart rot.
Paint exterior wooden structures.
Apply metal flashing to the ends of wood planks.
At All-American Pest Control, we use the award-winning Sentricon® System with Always Active™ to protect Brentwood homes from termite damage, and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to address other wood-damaging pests. IPM uses environmentally-friendly solutions first, and synthetic materials only as required.
Pests That Get Into Your Home
If centipedes, millipedes, spiders, flies, box elder bugs, Asian lady beetles, and a long list of other pests that find their way into your home are what you are most concerned about, your two greatest tools are exclusion and sanitation. Both can be applied inside and outside, but the exterior of your home is most important.
Exclusion — Repair damaged screens. Seal gaps. Replace weatherstripping and door sweeps. Make sure vents and weep holes are properly protected. Seal around pipes and wire conduits. Inspect the pipes that come into your home underneath your kitchen sink and make sure there is a good seal.
Sanitation — Manage your trash so that odors don't attract pests, and pests can't get into your trash. Keep on top of yard work, such as raking leaves, picking up dead branches, and trimming your landscaping. Remove objects from your yard that pests can hide underneath.
At All-American Pest Control, we offer Perimeter Plus Pest Control to repel and knockdown pests before they get in. This program offers coverage for over 47 of Tennessee's most common household pests.
