Leaf Defier Gutter Protection Systems Help Prevent Pest Infestations

General Pest Control Products

Leaf Defier says its products can help solve problems by preventing pests from entering the gutter cavity.

| December 17, 2010

Media, Pa. — Recently awarded the “Green Buildings Product Seal” from Green-Buildings.com, the Leaf Defier family of gutter protection products from FXI Building Products Corporation helps improve stormwater management, enhance building durability and prevent pest infestations by allowing water and fine particulates to flow freely through gutter systems while keeping leaves and other debris out, the firm says.

Designed with high-performance urethane polymers, Leaf Defier is easily inserted into gutters to ensure leaves, twigs, pine needles and other possible obstructions and animal food sources are kept from entering and clogging gutter systems. As a result, water flows readily through the foam filter insert, into the gutter valley and out the downspout to virtually eliminate overflows.

In addition, recent research within the pest management field has confirmed the potential benefits of Leaf Defier, which if used properly can change conducive conditions away from pests, the firm reports. In fact, Leaf Defier can help solve problems by preventing all forms of pests from entering the gutter cavity, including insects like mosquitoes that breed in standing water or carpenter ants that can build nests in moist wood caused by clogged gutters.
