Good “home hygiene” is the absolute best treatment for all pests; when you combine them with our Mosquito Control or our Pest Defense programs, you can’t get better perimeter protection. From a bug’s perspective there is hardly a better place to call home- dirty gutters have water, protection, and tons and tons of food (rotting leaves and other bugs). During particularly wet time periods, gutters can be the ideal home for nearly every single pest that plagues home owners.
For the absolute top of the line protection, three gutter cleanings a year are recommended. Most home owners, especially if you don’t live around a lot of trees, do just fine with two (one in spring and one in fall).
When our crew arrives, they remove all leaves and other debris blocking your gutters by hand, taking it with them after their finished. After a thorough cleaning, they check and clear all of your downspouts and make sure water can flow through them properly. Finally, they will closely inspect your gutters and reattach or tighten any loose gutter hangers.
