Why Keeping Your Yard Pest Proof is the First Step in Home Defense

Protecting your home and your property is important. When you think of keeping your home safe, there are a handful of security measures that probably come to mind first:

  • Alarm systems
  • Security cameras
  • Smart doorbells
  • Security sensors
  • Smart locks
  • Locking your doors in general

Most of us think of invaders that are going to break down your door and shatter a window so that they can steal your valuables.

What about the invaders that you are not expecting?

What about trespassers that invade the parts of your home that you can’t see?

The first lines of defense that you need to have at your home should be for protection from the invaders that are invisible to the eye, or at least at first. The ones that could potentially cause hundreds or thousands of dollars of damage to your home.

The Value in Keeping Your Yard Pest Proof

If you haven’t started pest-proofing your home, there is no better time to start than the present. Here are two of our top reasons that you should start protecting your home against pests now.

1) Protect Your Home Now

There is a good chance that you already have security measures in place for a break-in. As we mentioned, those methods of defense are the first thing that comes to mind for protecting your home and your family.

Statistics say otherwise.

The burglary rate in the United States is far lower than the number of homes that have pest infestations, every year.

Having an intruder break into your home can be devastating, but having pests invade your home is far more common. By the time that you realize that you have pests invading your home, it might even be too late.

Termites alone can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your home, and that doesn’t include the other pests that can invade. If you aren’t looking for a solution now, an event like this could be in your near future.

We recommend you make a priority to take the same preventative measures for pests, that you have for burglary and theft so that you can protect your home as soon as possible.

2) Invest in the Future

In terms of pest control, the best defense that you can have against pest invaders is a good offense. And the better the defense that you have now, the more money, time, and hassle that you are going to save yourself in the future.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Investing hundreds of dollars now could save you thousands or more in the future. Contact Advanced Pest and Weed Management today!
