Spring Pest Prevention Tips From Fischer Environmental

June 4, 2013By

This has been an unusually cool and wet spring for southern Louisiana and Mississippi, and many homeowners are now just getting to their “spring cleaning” lists for their home and yard.

Unfortunately, springtime in Louisiana and Mississippi also usually means large populations of insects, many of whom are looking for a new home. Spring is when many different species of insects, including termites, have large newly hatched populations that are on the hunt for food sources. Those food sources could, unfortunately, become your home if you are not careful. Fischer Environmental is here to help you prevent this from happening in many different ways.

Using Exterior Pest Control Treatments to Block Infestations

The first step is to set up a strong line of defense outside your home. While we will treat the entire perimeter of your home, we also create targeted strategies that are specific to your home. In particular, we aim to treat areas where pests would be attracted to sources of moisture, and try to find entry into your home.

The spring season is known for its many rain showers. This means a lot more water and moisture will accumulate around your house, particularly around gutters and downspouts, and any other areas that are naturally prone to facilitating pooled water. Our pest control technicians target these areas more heavily because we know that insects will be attracted to the sources of water, and their next step will be to try to enter your home.

Thanks to a treated barrier that will be created and maintained by Fischer Environmental, any insects that do try to make their way into your home will be greeted by very effective insecticide. Many of our pest treatments cause affected insects to become carriers of the insecticide, and will then affect any pests that the carriers come into contact with as well. The result is a structure that is virtually impenetrable for insects and other common Mississippi and Louisiana pests.

Making Pests Wish They Had Not Entered Your Home

With such a huge explosion of aggressive and voracious pests in the springtime, there is a chance that pests may manage to somehow break through the exterior defenses and make their way into your home. However, with Fischer Environmental on your side, these few insects that make it through will soon wish that they had stayed outside.

Inside your home, the Fisher Environmental interior pest prevention system will be at work. As the pests begin to scout and scrounge for food, they will find themselves facing challenge after challenge, including targeted treated areas and pest baits. Every variety of pests will soon learn that they are much better off hunting for food outside than trying to brave the elements inside your structure.

Taking a Comprehensive Approach to Spring Pest Prevention

Spring is one of the most demanding seasons when it comes to pest prevention, especially along the gulf coast. Half-hearted attempts at controlling insects and rodents will not be enough to keep the infestations at bay. That is why Fischer Environmental provides pest control strategies that tackle potential pest problems from every single angle.
