How Perimeter Pest Control Works

Perimeter pest control starts with the outside of your home. We treat the foundation, eves, walls, doorways, and window frames to create a barrier around the perimeter of your home that pests cannot cross – keeping insects and rodents outdoors where they belong. Next, we spray the spots in your yard where pests like to hide, feed, and breed. This gets rid of the pests on your property and repels local colonies that might want to move in.

Mosquito Joe’s perimeter pest control works to keep pests from invading your home by setting up a band around the foundation of the structure to ensure pests stay outdoors in their search for food, shelter, and breeding sites. We repeat our perimeter treatments every 90 days for continued effectiveness.

Benefits of Perimeter Pest Control Service

Perimeter pest control provides multiple benefits in every treatment:

  • Protects Your Home From Pests: The primary point of perimeter pest treatments is to keep pests from ever entering your home.
  • Minimizes the Need for Indoor Pesticides: Imagine being able to dispense with ant sprays, flea bombs, and roach bait indoors because they stay outside.
  • Targets a Wide Range of Pests: Our treatments effectively control ants, fleas, ticks, cockroaches, spiders, among others, keeping them outside.
  • Provides Continuous Protection: In addition to controlling existing pest populations, it reduces the risks of pests moving in for months.
  • Protects Your Family’s Health: Many pests carry bacteria, diseases, parasites, and other pathogens that can make people and pets sick.
  • Prevents Property Damage: Some perimeter pests (mice and rats, we’re looking at you!) can cause significant property damage to your walls, baseboards, insulation, and electric wiring.

Mosquito Joe’s pest control services eliminate critters, from ants to zebra cockroaches. Our perimeter pest treatments prevent them from moving inside to make their homes with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Since we’ve been fighting pests with success for years, we know questions our valued customers ask. These FAQs may be on your mind, too.
What are perimeter pests?

Perimeter pests are those that live and breed along the perimeters of human habitation. They often feed on our spillage or garbage and seek entry into our homes and businesses through small chinks in our walls or foundations. Perimeter pests include:

Should you spray the outside of your house for bugs?

Yes. The best way to keep pests out of your home is to spray the outside of your house from the eves to the foundations. This closes off the many tiny access points creepy crawlies find in your walls, window frames, and power cord pass-throughs. Caulk any small chinks in your walls and around plumbing pipes, repair cracked and broken mortar, and replace bent window frames to support the effectiveness of your perimeter pest control treatment.

How do I keep bugs and insects out of my house?

The first step in keeping bugs out of your house is recognizing why they want to get inside. Insects and other pests come indoors searching for food, water, and shelter. So, to keep pests out, take the following actions:

  • Store all food in airtight containers and promptly clean up spills.
  • Keep a tight lid on all trash cans and empty the garbage frequently.
  • Pick up pet food when pets are finished eating.
  • Wipe up all liquid spills, do not allow dishes to sit in the sink, and fix all leaky faucets.
  • Pick up clutter.
  • Seal pest entry points like cracks in the walls or foundations and gaps around windows.
  • Repair torn or frayed window screens and replace bent window frames.
  • Hire a professional perimeter pest control service.

How often should perimeter pest control treatments be applied?

We recommend repeating perimeter pest control treatments every 90 days to provide the maximum protection for your home. This schedule provides effective pest protection throughout all types of weather.
