We are pest control operators! We kill the pests that pester our clients. We rid them of mice, bats, raccoons, spiders, ants, bedbugs and more! As the weather begins to cool, these critters look for shelter bringing with them disease and destruction.

When colder weather arrives we, as pest control operators, need to put on another hat, home weatherization expert! We know where they enter and how they do it. Why not prepare homes to be more defensive. Your clients don’t need voles or mice chewing away at their wiring, or mice running across their counters. We can help protect their families before the invasion.

In addition to applying our products to the exterior perimeters we can identify the most accessible areas and seal them tight. If pests can’t get in, energy can’t get out! By weatherizing homes at this time of the year owners will be reducing their heating bills, saving money in the long run.

Another thing you can do for your clients is provide them with a list of items they can do to reduce the likelihood of an infestation. Here are just a few things as recommended by the NPMA you can share:

  • Install door sweeps on exterior doors and repair damaged screens
  • Store food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly in sealed receptacles
  • Eliminate all moisture sites, including leaking pipes and clogged drains
  • Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house; keep shrubbery well-trimmed.

Are you doing any of this right now? We would love to hear your story. Feel free to comment here or post something on the Bug Off Pest Control Center Facebook page.

By giving your clients some expert advice and going the extra mile for them you gain their trust and, most likely, will have their business for years to come.
