Preventing Pests at Home

Winterizing your home is the best bet to protecting yourself against insects, mice, rats, squirrels and raccoons that are looking for comfortable places to live in the winter.  There are a few tricks you can do yourself, but the surest way is to trust the experts at Suburban Exterminating.  Our technicians are trained to protect your home against pests. 

For your part:
  • Always keep trash cans tightly closed to keep away rodents and wildlife. 
  • Clean gutters of leaves, twigs and stagnant water where bugs can hibernate and gain sustenance. 
The experts at Suburban Exterminating can help you winterize your house and are the best defense in pest control.  Our technicians are trained to spot areas where insects, rodents or wildlife can enter your home.

  • We fill any holes around pipes, vents or windows. 

  • We make sure all vents and windows are screened, and will replace damaged, old or missing screens.  As a step further, we can caulk windows with a silicone frame to prevent any insects from entering.  (Plus, this may stop heat from escaping and lower your energy costs!)

  • We place chimney caps and replace garage door weather stripping.  Both of these entrances to your home can lead to rodents and wildlife looking for warm, dry places to nest in the winter.

  • We move your firewood away from the foundation and cut back any shrubs or bushes that will block the sun on your foundation, allowing it to dry properly.

All of these steps are important in winterizing a home.   Suburban’s teams are trained to spot possible problem areas where pests can enter.  Aside from being a nuisance, many insects, rodents, and wildlife can cause damage to your home, costing money in repairs.  Also, a lot of these pests carry disease, causing damage to your family, which is irreplaceable.  Call (631) or (516) 864-9600 for a free estimate and further information.
