Homeowners Tips

Pesticide Applications inside your home can be minimized by taking action to pest proof your home.
1)  Use protective covers on basement window wells. This helps to prevent
    leave and debris buildup, which harbors insects. The best well covers are
    those that can be easily removed. That allows your Chem-Wise technician to
    treat this key area for insects.

2)  Do not over fertilize the lawn. Such practice causes clover mites which will
    invade your home.

3)  Clean out your gutters. Earwigs, Millipedes, Carpenter Ants, Mosquitoes, and
    a host of other insects thrive in wet leaves found in gutters.

4)  Scoop the poop. Leaving dog fees on the lawn attracts flies which can
    eventually enter the home.

5)  Cut back the ivy. Ivy left to grow on the side of a house may look attractive,
    but it provides a harborage area for Spiders, Wasps, and Carpenter Ants.

6)  Clean out garbage cans and recycling bins. Spilled soda and food debris will
    provide a breeding area for flies and other insects that may enter the home.

7)  Install weather stripping on the bottoms of all doors. If a pencil can fit
    through a gap below the door, a mouse can too.

8)  Be sure that all screen and windows fit tightly. Caulk any crack or insect
    entry points.

9)  Store firewood away from the house, including window wells and from
    below decks.

10) Trim trees so that no branches are touching the house.
