What can you do to Pest-proof and home-seal your home?

 

 

Here in Arizona one of the best methods for keeping out scorpions is a home seal. Use caulking and fill in any holes that are open.

The rains and/or monsoon bring out the bugs and termites.

 

Most everyone enjoy the rains that come to Arizona this time of year, but with the good comes the bad.

 

Monsoons tend to whip up dust into the air. It also can bring down all that pollen floating in the air.

Monsoons can also bring in heavy rains and wind, almost cyclonic in nature.

And depending on your thoughts – termites. Termites consume a lot of wood including cactus and other fallen material. They also don’t know the difference between your house and wood in general.

 

So keep an eye on your property and if you see something like the photo below, it might be time to give ProBest Pest Management a call at 480-831-9328 or 623-414-0176

Building termite mounds for a Zoo.

 

 

I found this article interesting, but I have noticed over the years that many critters use termite mounds for observation. “Monarto termite mound is a high point for long time zoo volunteer Brian Tinning.” This zoo is in Adelaide Australia and this gentleman has been a volunteer there for over 40 years. Our hats off to him for his work and his dedication to wildlife.

There are many places around the world that have bigger issues with termites than Arizona. Certainly the East Coast of the US especially the southern states have more problems mainly due to more water and warmer temperatures.
