HOPPER HOME WATCH CAN OPEN YOUR HOME
Having multiple homes to jet off to in order to get away for the winter or the summer is a wonderful thing. However, we at Hopper Home Watch also know that it can be stressful and a little scary at times.
Let Hopper Home Watch take a little bit of the stress away with our Home Opening service so that you are ready to move back in the moment you arrive back in town. We will:
April showers may bring May flowers, but they also bring more bugs. Many bugs are not a fan of excessive or heavy rain, and for this reason, you will notice more bugs out and about or in your home after a heavy a rain. Just like us, they are doing their best to stay dry. So what can you do to keep your home pest free?
Read over the following tips to help keep the number of pests in your home and around your sacred outdoor spaces to a minimum.
STANDING WATER IS A BIG NO, NO
One of the most annoying pests, the mosquito, is attracted to standing water. After a heavy rain, you can find multiple items around your yard have filled with water such as buckets, drainage areas, pool covers, trash cans, and discarded tires. Mosquitos will flock to these water sources and begin reproducing.
In order to reduce the number of mosquitos, you must be diligent about pouring out standing water. After the rain stops, take a walk through your yard to see if there is anything that is holding water that can be dumped. During rainy seasons when it rains a lot during the night, it is also a good idea to create a routine to examine outdoors at least once a week.
SEAL IT. CAULK IT. PROTECT IT.
Rain rarely affects larger insects. However, smaller insects such as ants and spiders find it difficult to survive during long heavy rainfall. For this reason, they begin seeking shelter in your home. Taking steps to protect your home from smaller bugs such as spiders and ants can have a huge effect later down the road. We call these steps exclusion techniques.
Some effective exclusion techniques include sealing or resealing doors and windows, caulking or filling up small holes in and outside of the home, and making sure plants are not too close to the home. These techniques may not seem like much, but they can make a huge impact when bugs are seeking a dry place during heavy rainfall.

For many, spring is just the start of vacations and get-aways. In fact, many take advantage of Spring Break specials and head somewhere warm and inviting. However, the beginning of spring also means the beginning of unstable weather in the Ozarks. Storms can pop up without warning and can cause costly damage to property.
Don’t allow the threat of strong storms keep you from enjoying your next vacation. Check out the ways Hopper Home Watch can help you relax a little better while you are soaking up the sun.
HOPPER HOME WATCH CAN CHECK ON YOUR HOME
After a long night full of strong winds, heavy rainfall, and even hail, the first thing you want to do is inspect the outside of your home for damages. With the residential basic home watch services, our team can visually inspect the exterior of your home for things such as roof and gutter damage. Since it is also possible for storms to cause damage inside of the home, we can also inspect the interior of the home for things such as a tripped circuit breaker. Catching the little things early is the difference between returning to a home like you left it or returning to a mess to clean up.
After the inspection is complete, we will send you a notification via phone call, text, or email to let you know if anything needs your attention.
NEED PHOTOS? HOPPER HOME WATCH CAN TAKE AND SEND PHOTOS
In the case that damage was caused due to the storm, Hopper Home Watch has you covered. Because Hopper Home Watch is unique to every home, your plans can be tailored and customized to fit you and your home’s needs.
In fact, one of the custom additional services we offer is to take photos of any damages caused by storms. We understand how important it is to have post-storm photos taken as quickly as possible in order to have them sent to your insurance company.

This is a tricky question. While there are many invasive pests out there that don’t do too well when the cold winter temperatures arrive, many insects have no problem. In fact, many of the pests that pose problems in the summer find ways to make it through even the harshest winters by burying themselves underground, or even worse, moving further into your home.
And with temperatures warming sooner than usual, insects and bugs are starting to wake up. What does this early spring mean for your home and business?
ANTS AND BEES. MOSQUITOS AND FLEAS.
The good news is that by “waking up” or becoming more active sooner than usual, many pests such as bees put themselves at risks. For example, honey bees can die of starvation in milder winters because they tend to consume more honey due to flying around too early. In addition to early feeding habits, our weather also poses a problem for insects that start moving around too soon. There is no doubt that our weather is unpredictable in our area, and we could still experience a two to three-day freeze. A sudden drop in temperatures could take its toll on early active bugs. However, an early spring also means that there is more time for insects to breed. This could possibly create a larger population by this summer if our area gets enough rain.
Whether it is a record breaking winter or a warm, mild winter like we have experienced this year, there will always be bugs and pests. The best way to ensure that your home or business is pest-free is to be proactive. Take steps like cutting back trees and shrubbery near your home. For the inside of the home, make sure that access to food is minimized by placing food in air-tight containers. You can also give Hopper Environmental Services a call. Our technicians are well trained in exclusion techniques and know exactly what to look for when inspecting your home.

When it comes to selling your home there is often a to-do list a mile long. Sometimes it may seem like another full-time job. This list can get even longer if you and your family need to pack up and move across the state or even the country before the home is sold. This is when Hopper Home Watch can step in and help you in selling your home.
HOPPER HOME WATCH CAN WATER YOUR PLANTS
When it comes to selling your home, most realtors will agree that it is all in the details. Curb appeal can attract or deter prospective home buyers in a split second. If you have beautiful landscaping or eye-catching plants around the home, you wouldn’t want them to die away due to not being properly watered and managed. This is where Hopper Home Watch customized services come into play. With our customized services, we can create a plan specific to the needs of your home such as watering interior or exterior plants, start and idle a stored vehicle, or check and replenish a salt purifier.
HOPPER HOME WATCH CAN PREVENT PESKY PROBLEMS
Again, selling a home is all about the details inside and outside. This also includes pest problems that may be lurking in the attic and walls. Buyers want to know when they buy a home, that they will not need to spend tons of money cleaning up and getting rid of pest and rodent problems. If you and your family go ahead and move before the home is sold, then there is a chance for rodents and other pests to make your old home their new home.
Because of our extensive experience with Hopper Environmental Services, we can also inspect and notify you of any pests that may be lurking in or around your home. And if we spot any, we can also take care of the problem before a potential buyer spots the nuisance.
LET HOPPER HOME WATCH HANDLE THE PROFESSIONALS

With Hopper Home Watch, we can coordinate with professionals for services such as landscaping and tree trimming, maintenance and repairs, painting, plumbing, housekeeping, pest control, real estate sales and rentals, renovations, and roofing. We can customize each home with a unique plan that fits the homeowner’s desired needs.
