Protecting an area against pest access either by mechanical alteration (physical exclusion) or by rendering access points and harborage impassable via chemical repellency (chemical exclusion).
- Exclusion involves altering the environment so pests cannot enter or travel through. Chemical exclusion repels pests from the area and reduces the likelihood that pest will enter or harbor.
- Accomplished by making Crack & Crevice or void injection treatments with silica aerogel, or other repellent material.
- Physical exclusion may be a permanent solution for an area and reduces long-term pesticide requirement.
- Access points and voids may be quickly with products (chemical exclusion) designed to repel, which limit the influx of some pests and reduce pest sightings.
- Exclusion may reduce the use of chemical insecticides and is considered, by many, as environmentally friendly.
- Caulk, netting, wire mesh, cement and highly repellent insecticides.
Common Pests Treated with this Technique
- Occasional invaders
Residual products with repellent properties such as Tri-Die and Microcare.
