In-wall pest control systems work through a network of tubes that run through your home, before attaching to an outside port. Each tube is no larger around than a pen, and they have slits that distribute a slow supply of chemicals throughout the inside of your walls. Usually around twice a year, a technician will come blow the tubes out with air and refill them with new chemicals.
Many people are under the impression that in-wall pest control tubes expose themselves, their family, and their pets to unnecessary chemicals, but that’s simply not true. The levels of chemicals in your walls are tiny. Also, the chemicals don’t penetrate your walls. Any pesticide running through the tubing will never make it through your drywall. Traditional pesticide spraying exposes your home to just as many (if not more) chemicals than tube systems.
Installing tubes during a construction process is actually very cheap. There’s no reason that you won’t have the same tubing in your walls for years to come. That’s the beauty of the system! An initial investment and some small service fees are all it takes to prevent pests from ever getting inside.
Part of the convenience of tubing is that scheduled appointments aren’t necessary to keep your home pest-free. Other pest control services want you home and on alert when servicing your home, or you may even have to leave your home all together while it’s fumigated. In-wall pest control tubes allow a technician to refill your system from the outside service port. This means your home stays pest-free without you ever knowing the technician has come to refuel your system with chemicals.
Tubing will likely keep any pests away from your home. However, the tubes do not cover every inch of your interior. Pests could find their way into your house through areas not protected by the tubes. With the amount of damage and monetary loss pests can cause, it’s wise to invest in a secondary pest control system. There’s no such thing as being too protected!
While tubing does last a long time, nothing lasts forever. Eventually, the tubes in your walls will age and could start to leak. It’s important to discuss with your installation provider just how long your system should last.
