Bugs, Spiders and Other Pests — Weatherstripping is essential to winning the war on pests.
Mother Nature's little creatures are always on the lookout for food and protection from the elements and your customer’s homes are prime targets. Although some of these pests are helpful to our environment, and others are merely annoying, many can spread disease or cause millions of dollars in damage.
Unfortunately one of the most common ways for pests to get into the home is right through the door. Porch and patio lights can attract insects which in turn attract spiders that use the other bugs as a food source. As these spiders expand their search for food, they walk right under the front door and into the house.
Screen doors that don't properly fit in their frames are also primary entry points for everything from flies and wasps to ants and silverfish. Even bigger pests such as mice and chipmunks are notorious for getting in under garage doors. In the Southwestern United States, scorpions will use small gaps in the frame around windows and doors to get in.
The best defense against any of these pests is to prevent them from entering the home in the first place. By using Sealmax weatherstripping around doors and windows you can help your customers keep the outside - out.
