Modern Pest is Proud to Offer Total Home Exclusion Services

Service Pro with ladder

Recently, Modern Pest acquired Environmental Health Services, Inc. (EHS) of Norwell, Massachusetts. Since it was founded in 1985, EHS has been committed to providing superior pest management and environmentally-sustainable solutions for their customers. The exclusion method reduces the use of pesticides by identifying the root cause of the issue and providing a solution to protect homes from unwanted pests, rather than simply treating the symptoms.

Modern is excited to team with EHS because of how closely our values align with theirs. Modern is also committed to protecting our environment. We believe protection of the earth’s environment is essential to protecting the health and property of our clients.

Integrated Pest Management

Both Modern and EHS use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) technologies and philosophies and employ IPM practices in all operating activities. We evaluate the true extent of all pest infestations for our clients and customize treatment plans to solve pest problems. Comprehensive inspections and detailed communication allow us to reduce, and in many cases completely eliminate, the need for pesticides.

The merger of Modern Pest and EHS means that we can now offer our clients the best of both worlds, including EHS’s Total Home Exclusion (currently only offered in Massachusetts) and Modern’s Anticimex SMART technology, in addition to traditional pest control.

What is Total Home Exclusion?

Modern Pest knows that the best way to stop a pest problem is to prevent them from getting inside at all. Pests have five needs:

  1. Food
  2. Home
  3. Safety
  4. Comfort
  5. Health

When you take these things away, the pests go away, too.

Total Home Exclusion is a custom-designed, real solution from the sub-basement to the roof that is based on your home’s pest problem. We can even work with contractors as your home or business is being built. This is called prevention by design and involves building a structure specifically to prevent pests.

How is Total Home Exclusion Achieved?

We employ Total Home Exclusion through methods like non-lethal wildlife exclusion, bird proofing and/or netting, and pest-proofing for insects and rodents at any height. The process involves various steps.

Step 1:

All our pest programs start with a thorough inspection of the exterior of your home or business.

Step 2:

Potential entry points and openings are sealed with specialized rodent-proof stainless-steel materials that will physically stop pests from entering and infesting your location. Cement and sealant caulking are used to prevent pests from gaining access to you structure through cracks and gaps.

Step 3:

We use permanent corrective and preventative measures such as Xcluder door sweeps, astragal seals, foundation repair, air curtains, and chimney caps to keep pests out.

Step 4:

We tackle landscape rodent-proofing with various methods and materials, such as Xcluder Geo stainless steel geotextile barriers. This prevents unsightly and destructive rodent burrows and tunnels on your property.
