Perfecting Pest Control

If you don't like pests setting up shop in your home, you might be interested in hiring a professional exterminator to help you with your problems. However, unless you understand the tools that they are working with, you might find yourself wondering what else you can do to curb issues. For example, if you don't mention that mosquito problem, your exterminator might not know to treat that water feature with a pesticide that targets larvae. My site explains different ways you can prepare for your professional pest control treatment, so that you aren't left with issues later down the road.

Use A Certified Termite Pest Control Inspector To Treat Your Home's Termite Pest Control Problem


Anyone can claim to be a termite pest control inspector, but the only test control inspector you should hire is a certified termite inspector who is trained and qualified to determine whether your home has termites. The costs of finding and destroying termite organisms can be enormous when the insects are embedded in the wooden structures of your home. So you should protect your property's investments and use a certified termite inspector to examine and completely extinguish these pests if they are found in your home. You should also never purchase a home before checking for termite pests. Using a certified termite pest control inspector to determine if your house has a termite pest problem.

Examine House For Termite Pests Before Making Purchase

One of the first things you should do before committing to buy a certain home is to ensure that the home has been examined by a certified termite inspector. If the inspection reveals that there are termite pests well-lodged in the structure, then the seller should take care of the expenses involved in removing the pests. It's just not in your interest as a buyer to find a colony of termites embedded in your home's supporting beams and walls after you've bought the house. If the pests have been gnawing away at the structures for years, it may be even impossible to reverse the damage in some cases.

Fixing Termite Damage And Including Costs in Sale Price

Now if you're the seller and there is documented damage due to termite destruction of your house, you have the option of fixing the problem before offering the home for sale. You can later add the costs for fixing the damage to the sale price of your home. 

Building A New Home?

When you're having a new home built, arrange with the construction site manager to have a pre-construction anti-termite treatment performed. This treatment destroys any existing termite infestation on your building lot after the foundation is laid. Your new building structure gets full protection from this procedure at the beginning of the construction, during and when the construction ends.

How Pre-Construction Treatment Works

Your home's foundation is treated with a termiticide anti-termite solution. Soil surrounding the foundation is also heavily treated with this solution, which acts to bar any termites from advancing into the foundation. Faced with no wood to feast on, the termites mercifully perish. Your home is thus secured from any future termite attacks. Consolidated earth within your plinth walls also blocks entry by the pests.

If these wily pests plan on entering your new home through the soil that surrounds gutters, pipes, and tubes, which are usually inside the foundation area, that will not happen. This area is also treated with the termiticide solution by a certified termite control technician.
