Sometimes you have pests in your walls and you don't even know it. It's an unnerving proposition, living amongst a silent infestation.
The problem will continue to grow over time, and eventually could cause real danger to your home.
There are many answers to your pest problem, though people will debate endlessly over which answer is the best.
Personally, we're fond of tube systems that exist in your walls to actively deter pests from colonizing your home.
In wall pest control systems work through a network of tubes that run through your home, before attaching to an outside port.
The tubes themselves have slits that distribute a slow supply of chemicals throughout the inside of your walls.
Many people are under the impression that in wall pest control tubes expose themselves, their family and their pets to unnecessary chemicals.
That's simply not true. The levels of chemicals in your walls are minimal. Each tube is no larger in diameter around than a pencil.
Also, the chemicals do not penetrate through your walls. Any pesticide running through the tubing will never make it through your drywall.
Traditional pesticide spraying exposes your home to just as many (if not more) chemicals than the tube system.
Eliminate staying home, waiting for your technician to show up
Part of the convenience tubing brings, is that scheduled appointments aren't necessary to keep your home pest free.
In wall systems for pest control let's a technician come refill your system from the outside service ports.
This means your home stays pest free without you ever knowing when a technician comes to refill your system with chemicals.
TUBES IN THE WALL SYSTEMS ARE ONLY PREVENTATIVE MEASURES TO PROTECT YOUR HOME AGAINST CRITTERS.
Tubing will likely keep any pests away from your home. However, the tubes do not cover every inch of your interior.
Pests could find their way into your house through areas not protected by the tubes.
With the amount of damage any monetary loss pests can cause, it's wise to invest in a secondary pest control system.
THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH PROTECTION FROM PESTS.
NOTHING LASTS FOREVER
While tubing does last a long time, nothing lasts forever. Eventually, the tubes in the walls will age and could start to leak.
While chemicals won't normally seep through your walls, a leak could potentially change that.
YOU CAN ONLY USE THE COMPANY THAT INSTALLED YOUR SYSTEM
THIS IS NONSENSE. Any pest control company with the correct tools can service a tube system.
