  • Saves money: Controlling a few pests before they become entrenched is easier, less expensive, and prevents the need for costly repairs.
  • Protects your health: Proximity to different pests can cause various upper respiratory issues, especially for those with compromised health.

What Does a Pest Inspection Consist Of?

When you call Mosquito Joe for an outdoor pest inspection, we thoroughly examine your home’s exterior. We inspect every surface, from your home’s foundation to the yard, garden, patio, decks, water features, and landscaping. And we don’t stop there. We analyze your windows, doors, screens, gutters, and downspouts for any potential entry to your home that rodents, insects, or bugs might use.

Finally, your inspection ends with a detailed, written report documenting any structural damage and other signs of pest activity we find. We will advise you on any pest control services you may need and prepare a report for your lending institution if required.

  • Evidence of pest activity: This can be in the form of droppings, holes in the wall or ground, or other property damage.
  • Strange odors: Rodent nests, in particular, have strong odors.

Frequently Asked Questions About Home Pest Inspections

At Mosquito Joe, we’re all about empowering you against your pesky foes. And since we’ve seen a lot, we can confidently answer your questions.

How often should my home be inspected for pests?

Because pests can cause significant structural damage in your home, not to mention the health risks they pose, we recommend yearly home pest inspections. Regular inspections are a proactive measure that identifies potential pest issues before they become a severe problem and harder to remove.

Can pest inspections help prevent future infestations?

Pest inspections are invaluable for preventing future infestations. Not only do we detect early signs of pests moving in so you can take action, but we also identify conditions that can attract pests. We provide a detailed report in writing alerting you to potential access points and anything pests look for, like leaky faucets or attractive bedding materials.

Are the chemicals used during inspections risky for pets and children?

We don’t use chemicals during our inspections, so there is no risk to your children or pets.

How do I prepare for an outdoor home pest inspection?

When you schedule a home pest inspection, unlock any gates or doors and secure your pets. If you’ve noticed signs of pest activity, leave it for the service professional’s review. Share your concerns, observations, and any documentation of prior pest problems or treatments.

Can I stay inside my home during the pest inspection?

You are not required to be present for your pest inspection, but you are absolutely welcome to stay. We use no chemicals in the process and will not disturb you. We do ask that you supervise any pets or children while our pest inspectors are on your premises. We will provide a written report of our findings.
