Common Perimeter Pest Control Concerns


The most notorious of pest invaders to homes, ants pose major sanitation concerns as well as being an overall nuisance on your property. Though very beneficial, when ants invade a property they can also cause structural damage costing you thousands in repairs. Because of this, we use a combination of treatments to help control their populations.


Spider invasions usually occur when the spiders go looking for food in the dark, moist areas of your home where other bugs might invade. Shy as they are, spiders are primarily a nuisance pest with a bad reputation. They do not attack on purpose, but can bite if their nesting sites are disturbed. There are non-chemical methods of lowering their presence, but perimeter treatments around the property provide great relief as well.

How Should I Prepare Before R&D Pest Control Arrives?

  1. Please do a quick check of the perimeter of the property for any pet toys that are close to the exterior. We do not wish to accidentally contaminate any of these toys, but if we see them our technicians will pick them up and place them in a safe area.
  2. Please keep all windows and doors closed. We know it can get hot during the summer months and opening the windows helps keep energy costs down. However, we do not wish to have any accidental residue from our treatment work its way into your home, so please do your best to keep the house closed up for the duration of the treatment.
  3. No, you do not need to be home for the treatment. Our technicians can email you a copy of the treatment specifics. However, if you’d like to be there during the treatment, we’d be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
