What can I do to help protect my home from pests?

  • Seal any cracks and holes on the outside of the home, including areas where utilities and pipes enter the home. Check all windows and door frames.
  • Screen vents and openings to chimneys.
  • Keep attics, basements and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry.
  • Repair fascia, soffits and rotted roof shingles; some insects are drawn to deteriorating wood.
  • Replace loose mortar and weather-stripping around the basement foundation and windows.
  • Clean away weeds and leaves from the perimeter of your home.
  • If you suspect a pest infestation in your home, contact AB-Con to inspect and treat the pest problem.
