What Are Physical Barriers?
Just as the name implies, physical treatments are physical ways to remove pests. Physical pest control is an extremely effective way to eliminate pests, such as termites, rodents, ants, and more. And, unlike other forms of pest control, you have many choices as to which physical pest control methods you use.
What Are My Physical Barrier Options?
These methods include things such as fly screens and barrier mesh, “proofing” for birds (such as netting), physical means of pest detection (such as trapping) and blocking access to your home to prevent pests like possums and rats from entering. In many cases, using physical pest treatments can permanently eliminate the problem. Physical controls can be implemented at pest breeding sites. And, by eliminating the breeding site, your pest problem can be permanently solved.
Why Choose Physical Barriers?
