Why Your Pest Control Professional Should Also be a Concrete Expert
By now you know that scorpions can enter your home through any crack that you can slide your credit card through. If it’s approximately 0.030 in thick, a scorpion can squeeze through it…
They are crafty and sneaky little pests.
If your Gilbert home has the smallest of cracks in the walls or foundation, scorpions will find their way in.
The most skilled, trusted and experienced Gilbert pest control professional will have a background in masonry work…plain and simple.
Today, I want to share with you just how important it is to have skilled masonry professional, who also happens to be a pest control expert, to your home for both termites and scorpions.
Pest Control Concrete Professional
There are two instances in which a pest control professional also needs extensive knowledge in concrete and masonry work:
When termites have invaded your home and drilling will need to be done to lay out extermination chemicals…
When home sealing is essential to keep scorpions out of your Gilbert home…
Termites and Concrete
First off, let’s talk about how detrimental termites can be to your Gilbert home.
The common misconception with termites is that they need wood, and since your Gilbert home is not made of wood but more block and concrete, termites have no reason to invade.
That’s not necessarily true.
Termites love masonry! They, obviously, don’t munch through masonry, but they do love the tiny cracks in your foundation or concrete walls that tend to form over time. Termites literally turn these minuscule cracks in the concrete into their own personal highways.
Termites will use every single concrete crack in your home as a highway to the good stuff…your drywall, those 2-by-4 studs in the wall, and the roof frame.
Here at Magic Pest Control, our termite specialists know exactly where to look for termites, and exactly how to get rid of them…placing the termite pesticides exactly where the termites are…within the cracks in your concrete.
This means that when our termite exterminators come out to your Gilbert home, they will skillfully drill into the concrete, laying out essentially a border of protection around your home…within the your concrete driveway, your concrete garage floor, even your concrete entrance path…to kill termites where they hide and keep them from coming back.
Only a skilled masonry with extensive experience in concrete work, and termite knowledge, is right for this job.
Scorpions and Termites
Just like termites use the tiniest of cracks in your concrete as their own personal highway to good food, so too do scorpions.
Scorpions will find these tiny cracks in your concrete foundation and walls, and they’ll let themselves right into your home.
Your Gilbert home needs to be sealed from scorpions by those who know Arizona homes and concrete construction the best…masonry pest control professionals!
