Pest exclusion is the vital first line of defense in commercial and residential pest control. A pest control plan with a heavy emphasis on exclusion methods can reduce the need for traps and chemical applications. When you partner with the professional team at Truly Nolen Atlanta you can be sure that your home or business is fully inspected for any possible pest entry points. Our exclusion methods will then be integrated to block pests from entering your property. Every hole and crack will be sealed with special attention paid to garbage chutes, drains, and foundation cracks in commercial properties and unique problems like worn weather-stripping addressed in residential properties.
Exterior: Create a Buffer Zone
Your home or business should also have a “buffer zone” a two-foot perimeter around your property completely free of organic material. Weeds, grass, mulch, fallen leaves, compost, and bark can provide food and shelter for a vast range of pests. Trim limbs, branches, and shrubbery back at least two feet from the property’s exterior and store firewood and waste containers at least 20 feet away.
Interior: Keep it Clean
You can also take steps to prevent pests from infesting your property’s interior by eliminating their potential food sources (seal pantry products in plastic bags or containers, store any sweets and fruits in the refrigerator or in sealed bags or containers, and remove pet food from bowls except during mealtimes.) You should also clean counters and tables after eating, vacuum and clean floors regularly, and avoid leaving a sink full of dishes for any extended period, especially overnight.
