Pest Control of Homes in the colder winter months of ArkansasDecember 14th, 2011 at 13:51
Homeowners combat pests throughout the year—especially during the colder winter months when pests try to move indoors.
As a new-homes professional, you can help keep pests out of homes year-round while reducing the need for harmful chemicals, which are a concern of many homeowners—especially those with small children or pets.
The Indoor airPLUS Construction Specifications includes two guidelines for Pest Management:
- Seal foundation joints and penetrations, including air-tight sump covers.
- Install corrosion-proof rodent/bird screens at all openings that can’t be fully sealed.
Employing these two simple strategies during construction will help your customers avoid pest problems and use fewer harmful pesticides.
