Fumigation Service – Pest Proofing your Home
How to pest proof your house
If you have just encountered a problem with pests at your home, you should know that a severe pest infestation can become a long and extensive process. You may need seek out a professional for a fumigation service, and then hope that another infestation doesn’t happen afterwards. There are a lot of things you can do to be proactive in pest proofing your home against an infestation.
Seal up openings
Cracks and openings in your house can become an entryway for bugs that want to share your home. Be sure to seal up any gaps you may have, making sure to check around doors, windows, or other areas that may be prone to holes or cracks on your exterior walls. A loose or torn screen on a window should also be replaced.
Be sure to close food packaging
Open food containers in your kitchen will easily become an attraction for bugs like cockroaches. Opened goods should be kept in plastic containers that can be sealed, and not left open inside your pantry.
Clean up
Any rubbish that is left sitting around your home can attract pests like rodents and many types of insects, especially food, food containers, and crumbs. Be sure to toss these items as soon as possible in an outside bin that is sealed. When you have more clutter, you are less likely to catch a pest problem early.
Get a pet for your home
Getting a pet can be a prevention of mice and rodent infestation. These rodents can smell predators and you’ll have more chances of them staying away if they know the area is dangerous. If the idea of a pet is too much, there are pet urine sprays that you can purchase that mimic the smell. Spray this in strategic areas around the home so that you imitate the presence of a pet.
Search for signs of pests often
Finding pests early is very important in helping to prevent more extreme pest problems. Calling a fumigation service early can help prevent minor problems from becoming much larger, which will help save a lot of money in the future. Just keep a look out for any clues that there may be pests like droppings, dead insects, and chew marks on your furniture.
If you think you may have a problem with any pest, it’s great to plan a professional inspection. This will help to determine the severity of the problem and a fumigation service will provide you with methods on how to prevent pests in the future.

"We first used A1 Pest Control a few years ago when we noticed a few termites under a wine barrell in the rear yard of our home. We asked A1 Pest Control Sydney to pay us a visit to have a thorough termite inspection of our home. Bruce and his crew were on time, and very well presented. They explained how they would get rid of the termite infestation using a low toxic method and how their Thermal cameras worked, It worked very well and now we can sleep at night!"

"We have been using Bruce form A1 Pest Control for over 4 years now. We bought our new house on the Hills Area, and moved in. our neighbours had problem with rodents and spiders so they are using A1 next door. I asked them if they could come over and treat our house too, as i didn't want to chase pest around our home. The service was not only effective, but carried out without any smelly fumes that we have experienced in our last house. They solved problem next door and I haven't seen a bug since."
