Pest Control: Composting or Bug Farming?
This definition is of particular interest to me as a Pest Control professional especially when we view the last 3 word “and other organisms” Many of these other organisms are common household pests. It would seem to go without saying that when you create compost you are actively welcoming these pests in but it really does need to be said because most people don’t think of this when planning a compost pile or bin.
Animal Access at Eaves
Poor detailing in siding is common in newer construction and is the most common cause for animal access in new homes. This is true for both fiber cement products and wood siding products although we are seeing a lot fewer wood siding products used in construction today. One of the most common defects in siding and trim installation in new construction is poor fitting of trim at the eaves of homes where the eaves interfaces the roof surface. This detail is typically observed at the lower corners of gables having a eyebrow roof but may also be seen at changes in elevation of the eaves, at dormer roof interfaces to the main roof surface, or any similar configuration. It does not require a very large gap for animals to gain access to the space above the soffit at the eaves, about a quarter inch, and once there they typically have full access to the attic space.
