The term insect is broad, encompassing a variety of different creatures that are within the Hexapod class. As the term hexapod implies, insects have six legs in total. Their body is covered in an exoskeleton and can be separated into three parts; the head, thorax and abdomen. While insects are important and necessary for the environment, they can quickly become pests when they invade your home, destroy gardens and lay eggs in unwanted places. Our insect exterminators, commonly called technicians, are licensed and qualified to provide insect treatment for your home.
While many over-the counter insecticides are convenient and cheap, they are often a quick fix solution. Our products at Insight are designed to treat the source of an insect infestation. Allowing colony members to take the product back to their main hub, thus treating the overpopulation on a larger scale.
How To Manage Insects
As stated earlier, the term insect is broad and contains within it a variety of species. Each insect is different; insect control and/or removal may need to be specific to the species that has invaded your property. A technician can help you determine what specific steps to take and what products to apply in order to manage your insect issue. In general apply these techniques to minimize insect problems:
- De-clutter the outside and inside of your home. Insects often like to congregate in dark and moist shelters. Scrap piles, dirty clothes, and plyboards leaning against homes are all examples of areas that can provide shelter and a home for insects.
- Securly package pantry items, clean dishes and wipe off counters and tables after meals. Remove crumbs and potential food sources that would be easily accessible to pests.
- Trim back shrubbery from your home. This will eliminate an easy bridge from your plants to your home that insects will use to gain access to the inside.
- Seal entry points such as cracks in the foundation, and caulking decay next to the windows and doors in your home.
