Imagine the ground in a forest. Usually, it is full of fallen leaves, mulched branches or bark from trees, pine needles, and so on. This creates the perfect environment for pests that creep and crawl. It allows them a place to hide, a place to nest, and a place to lay eggs. Now imagine the area around your Denver home or business. Are there leaves or mulch in the window wells? Are there leaves gathering in a carpet that is right up against your building? Consider any foliage that touches or hangs over your property has a likely place for pests.
There are some measures we can all take as basic prevention against pests. You can sweep, mop, vacuum crumbs and clean up food spills to eliminate the minute traces of odors that only pests can detect. Another level of basic protection is a chemical barrier around the outside and inside the perimeter of your Denver home to deter pests.

Physical barriers that protect your Denver property include some more visible and less obvious barriers. Doors and windows physically block pests from coming in. When open, windows must have an additional level of protection: a screen. A screen allows fresh air inside your Denver property while it keeps insects out. Another level of protection around windows and screens is caulking. Caulking fills in cracks and seals gaps between the windowsill and the screen or the window itself.
