It’s that time year, heading to the summer home to get ready for the season! Aside from the normal removal of the sheet plastic on the Windows, washing the appliances, and prepping for your seasonal ‘move in’, is there anything you forgotten?
Yes! Pest control! Since your home has been sealed up all winter, and it is still pretty wet outside, pests, such as carpenter ants, are already in the process of making your summer home theirs! Before you move yourself and your family in for the summer, the best thing to do would be to have the team of Absolute Pest Management inspect your home for current pests as well as evidence for pests in the past, so that we can prevent them in the future!

They will burrow into dead trees and making that their home, or if the opportunity presents itself, they will burrow into your home and make your life a living nightmare. There are chemical sprays on the market you can purchase in the big box stores, but they only moderately effective and offer no long-term protection.
