Pests love to sneak indoors. Why wouldn’t they? Most Canadian households are cool in the summer, cozy in the winter and have an infinite amount of available food sources to choose from. It’s easy to see why they want in but tough to spot how they are getting there. In the same way that humans have their own preferred mode of travel, so do pests. Some crawl, some scurry, some squeeze and others prefer to be carried in. If you find yourself dealing with a revolving door of pests, it is time to look for entry points.
There is nothing better than throwing opened windows and doors to let in a cool breeze. Unfortunately, doing this lets in more than just the wind. Small critters, like spiders and silverfish are known to use these spaces to creep inside. Screens might help a bit but they can’t keep everything out. These are some of the most obvious pathways, but they aren’t the only ones. Mice are known to squeeze themselves through holes the size of a dime, so cracks and openings in basement walls or windows are high-traffic for rodents. Depending on the type of invader that you are dealing with, some areas are obvious and others are more well hidden. Luckily, Toodaloo technicians have been in the business a long time and understand how common pests think.
The only way to properly keep pests out is to seal up the areas that are letting them in. Residential and commercial properties take up a lot of space, and offer up a lot of opportunity for bugs and vermin. Treating these unwanted guests means getting creative and that is just what Toodaloo does. Even tricky areas like air conditioning vents can be sealed with mesh screens, holes in foundations can be patched and attics can be outfitted to prevent birds from nestling in. When you want the right insight to keep your home pest-free, there is no one better to call than Toodaloo.
