WELCOME HOME! Newly constructed homes can become inhabited with problematic pests!

Many new homes are built on wooded lots or farmlands that have been cleared. When this happens, pests' home will also be destroyed, so those pests need to go somewhere since their homes were destroyed! The types of construction materials being used, materials delivery and storage practices, climate/weather effects and construction site ecology are all factors that determine which type of pest problem might be encountered in a new home.

With the builder's cooperation, houses in the framing stage of construction can be preventively treated by our service technicians using borates to help control insects that may enter structural voids. Once a home is built and pests have arrived, Roberts Termite and Pest Control can shift their focus to corrective pest control methods. Any preventive control programs that our company has designed and implemented during the early stages of construction will go a long way toward keeping a newly constructed home pest-free.
