Preventing Pest Problems without Pesticides

Rodents:

  • Deny them cover with proper landscaping, deck design, and maintenance.
  • Eliminate clutter.
  • Deny rodents access to your home by sealing the more common access points - AC line access, utility hookups, gable and eave vents, rotted Facia and siding.

General pests:
