Integrated Pest Management: How to address the technician's areas of concern

 The information below serves as your guide on how to address the concerns mentioned in our assessment form, which the technician will provide along with the service report after treatment.

Follow-Up or Regular Pest Control Service:

If a property has an existing infestation, one treatment is usually not sufficient to completely eliminate pests. This is due to several factors, such as 

  • Pests develop immunity to certain chemicals, so it takes a while before they are affected by the treatment.
  • Openings in the property serve as entry points for outside pests, and until they are sealed, pests will continue to infest the property.
  • If the surrounding areas of the property are heavily infested, regardless of how clean one property is, pests may still infest it. Regular pest control is needed to create a chemical barrier for the property so pests will avoid entering it. This is especially common in condominiums, buildings, and houses built closely together.

Solution: After treatment, consult our Triple-A technician for an assessment of your property to determine if follow-up treatments are recommended.

Open Food Sources:

Easy access to food is the primary reason pests infest or breed on a property. This includes leaving leftovers, uneaten pet food, and even seeds exposed.

Solution: Store all food in tightly sealed containers and dispose of leftover food properly.

Waste and Compost:

Exposed food waste in your garbage area acts as a buffet for pests, making your property an ideal breeding ground for them.

Solution: Ensure all trash cans are properly covered to prevent pests from accessing them and trash with food inside the house are all emptied by the end of the day.

Water Sources:

In addition to food, easy access to water sources attracts pests to infest a property. This includes leaks, damaged pipes, and dripping faucets.

Solution: Repair all leaks and damaged pipes, and cover any open water sources. Ensure all faucets are tightly closed after each use.

Cracks, Gaps, Openings, or Entry Points:

Even small cracks or gaps can serve as entry points for pests. It is crucial to find and repair these openings to prevent pests from entering your property.

Solution: Seal all possible openings.

Trees and Branches:

Trees with branches reaching the roof can serve as entry points for rodents. 

Solution: Trimming these branches will prevent rodents from accessing the property.

Open Areas:

Terraces, open windows without screens, and broken windows can also serve as entry points for pests and should be covered to prevent their entry.

Clutter or Debris:

Clutter and debris provide hiding, shelter, and nesting places for pests, especially rodents and termites.

Solution: Take the time to declutter, especially if items are made of wood.


Rooms where food is accessible must be properly maintained to prevent pest attraction.

Solution: Keep these rooms as clean as possible to deter pests.

Past or Nearby Rodent Infestation:

Properties in areas with heavy pest infestations may attract pests from time to time.

Solution: Cover all possible entry points and schedule regular pest control services.
