Our Home Pest Control Perimeter Treatment

Perimeter treatments establish a barrier of protection around the outside of your home. Not only will this help prevent re-infestations of common pests such as crickets and ants, but they also prevent the entry of occasional invaders, such as pill bugs and millipedes, and harmful insects like spiders, wasps, and ticks. A perimeter treatment reduces the number of pests that find harborage on the structure or in the soil and lawn around your home. Fewer pests will enter your home, and the remaining pests will encounter an effective barrier, both inside and out.

Insects can also infiltrate your yard and home from neighboring areas. Our perimeter treatment helps keep out pests from neighboring yards as well. Perimeter treatments can also protect valuable landscape plantings from feeding insect pests.

A Thorough Inspection Leads To An Effective Treatment

Before treatment, a Delmar Pest Control technician will perform a pest inspection of your property. This inspection locates areas where pests normally congregate, such as trash collection areas, mulch and gravel beds in the landscape, and eaves that frequently harbor spiders and wasps. The inspection also locates common entry points, such as utilities, door and window frames, and cracks in the foundation walls and siding.

We Tailor Our Treatments To Your Particular Pest Problems

From the pest inspection, our technician determines the type and extent of insect infestations you may have and how to treat them most effectively. Before performing the perimeter treatment, the technician will discuss the treatment strategy with you, pointing out any special treatment areas. The technician will remove objects like children’s toys and lawn furniture from treatment areas. He will also empty and remove pet bowls. As a precaution, we ask that you keep children and pets off treated areas until the application is complete and the solution has dried.

Your tech will apply an insecticide to areas requiring precise applications, beginning in the back yard. The technician will also perform a general surface application along the foundation, in mulch and gravel beds, and in detailed areas, such as around tree trunks. 

The technician will apply a solution to the soil and lawn adjacent to your home to complete the treatment. The same process is followed for the front yard.

The Service Continues After The Treatment

Following treatment, the technician will discuss any other pest problems encountered, such as a rodent infestation, and how they can deal with it. Our technician will point out any steps the customer can take to make the next treatment more effective, such as opening a locked gate or gaining access to a raised deck. We can also discuss ways to make treatments more effective, including repairing or replacing damaged screens or attic vents and sealing cracks in the foundation.

With an industry-exclusive, one-year warranty on our service, you won’t receive more thorough or effective pest control anywhere else.
