Pest Solutions for Pill Bugs in Tennessee
Whether you encounter pill bugs (aka roly-polies) in your garden soil or inside your Tennessee home, this woodlouse can be an unwanted nuisance. Their main habitat is underneath organic matter such as mulch, rocks, and fallen leaves and in soil alongside millipedes, earthworms, and sow bugs (a close relative).
However, just because pill bugs thrive outdoors doesn’t mean they can’t make their way indoors to bug you. Prevention is especially important when it comes to managing pill bugs. If you have pests traveling inside, you’ll want to close off any cracks and entry points as quickly as possible.
How We Inspect and Treat for Pill Bugs
At U.S. Pest, our technicians prioritize proactive action and integrated pest management (IPM) practices to ensure we’re taking the most comprehensive approach to your pill bug problem. First, we perform a thorough inspection of both the interior and exterior of your home for pill bugs. When inspecting the outside of the building, we’ll look for any potential pest entry points and conducive conditions around the premises.
Our pest control for pill bugs will avoid treating with product application inside the home unless absolutely necessary. Due to the nature and habitat of this pest, our methods for eliminating pill bugs will focus on controlling conditions on the exterior of your home or business.
Moisture Prevention and Crawl Space Services
Many pill bugs gain access to houses through openings and cracks in the foundation or crawl space. They’re also attracted to dark and damp environments, making proper ventilation a must in basements and crawl spaces to help eliminate excess moisture. Make sure crawl space vents are open to allow airflow and that there is a door on the entrance to keep pill bugs out.
Fortunately, U.S. Pest offers a full range of crawl space services and solutions if areas under your home are attracting pill bugs and other pests. From insulation and draft protection to humidity and moisture control, we can help ensure that unwelcome bugs and excessive moisture stay out while maintaining the structural integrity of your home.
