The Log Home Neighborhood

An online log home community for log home enthusiasts.

Hi,
We live in Colorado, which doesnt really have that many bugs....however since moving into our log home in 2001, it seems we are constantly battling bark beetles, bed bugs (which we think came from a piece of antique furniture we purchased) beetles and just in general many bugs in the home. I do not remember having this many bugs in a stick built home while living in the same area.

I am very concerned about toxin's in the home and hesitate to spray with chemicals, at least in the interior of the home.

Suggestions?

I think your best bet would be to contact someone who does thermograpic surveys. They can help pinpoint areas of air leakage, which are usually the same areas used by insects to get into the home. They'll also be able to help you determine what kind of maintenance work will be needed to get your home sealed up to help prevent future insect infestions.

Shoot me an email at cbabcock@sashco.com and I'll get you the names of a couple people who do such work in & around Colorado.

Thanks! -- Charis with Sashco
