HOME SEALING AND COATINGS A WASTE OF MONEY? YOU DECIDE…

The latest new product is a spray or brush on resin that the company claims stops scorpions from getting into your home. The above video clearly shows scorpions climbing on their product high enough to reach the weep holes or footing seam.

The Scorpion Repel product will cut down on entry but will not eliminate it 100% as the Pest Border Barrier will. This product has a limited life span on your home and will yellow from the sun. Being that it is a new product with very limited background the results remain to be seen.

WHY HOME SEALING DOES NOT WORK

MANY OF OUR CLIENTS HAD THEIR HOMES SEALED BEFORE COMING TO US AND ARE REGRETFUL THAT THEY SPENT THAT MONEY BEFORE FINDING PEST BORDERS.

THERE ARE MANY REASONS WHY THE HOME SEALING PROCEDURE IS FAR FROM AN EFFECTIVE SOLUTION. BUT BY FAR THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE IS CONCERNING WHAT IS CALLED WEEP HOLES ON YOUR HOME.

PLEASE EXAMINE THE PHOTO ABOVE.

IF YOU LIVE IN A STUCCO HOME, WHERE THE STUCCO MEETS THE CEMENT STEM WALL WHICH IS THE RISE FROM THE FOUNDATION THERE IS A METAL FOOTING THAT EVERY FEW INCHES HAS A CIRCULAR HOLE TO ALLOW AIR TO FLOW INTO THE INNER WALL IN ORDER TO KEEP THE WOOD DRY AND PREVENT MOLD. THESE HOLES CANNOT BE COVERED UP. MOST OF THE TIME THE HOME SEALING COMPANY IS NOT GOING TO TELL YOU THIS BECAUSE THEY CANNOT SEAL THEM. S0 AROUND THE COMPLETE PERIMETER OF YOUR HOME YOU HAVE HUNDREDS OF THESE OPENINGS INTO YOUR WALLS WHERE NOT ONLY SCORPIONS BUT MANY OTHER PESTS ENTER INTO THE WALLS AND THEN EVENTUALLY FIND A WAY INTO THE HOME. THE PEST BORDER BARRIER GOES DIRECTLY ON THE STEM WALL BENEATH THE WEEP HOLES PREVENTING SCORPIONS AND MANY OTHER PESTS FROM THE VERY FIRST ENTRY POINT ON YOUR HOME.

WOW HOME SEALING CANNOT EVEN STOP SCORPIONS FROM THE VERY FIRST ENTRY POINT ON YOUR HOME JUST INCHES FROM THE GROUND.

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK? IS HOME SEALING A WASTE OF MONEY?
