Trees and Vegetation Touching House

This is a conducive condition for pest entry, a highway for insects, spiders, and rodents.

Attics

Make sure that attic vent screens and doors are secure so attics aren’t avenues for pests.

Gable Vent

Needs screening to prevent insects, spiders, rodents, and bats from entering.

Exterior Walls/Siding

Pests love to enter through gaps where walls and siding meet your windows.

Doors

If you see light underneath your doorways, that’s a sure sign that pests can enter freely.

Windows

Inspect window screens for holes and make sure weather stripping isn’t worn.

Bath Trap Access Doors

Open doors and gaps are entryways for cockroaches and cellar spiders.

Garage Doors

Use a rubber seal at the bottom of door to have an effective barrier against pests.

Crawlspaces

Crawlspaces provide service access for plumbing, electrical, and heating and cooling systems, but they can have the perfect conditions to support termites.

Slabs

Termites can enter through a 1/32” crack which is approximately the thickness of a piece of paper. Along with pipe access points, slabs can crack due to settling that can allow entry points for termites.
