General Pest Control

Our promise is to get rid of the bugs and pests so that you can have absolute peace of mind. Spiders, wasps, cockroaches – you name it, and we’ll eradicate it. If you see any of these in your home, business or real estate property, feel free to get in touch and let us do the rest.

Mice, Rats & Rodents

Mice and rats are destructive, filthy creatures. Some may think they’re cute and harmless, but they can eat through drywall, insulation and electrical wiring. They spread diseases, from rat-bite fever to bubonic plague. If you see one or just droppings, it’s best not to wait for things to spiral out of control.

Ants & Termite

Damage from these critters cost up to $5 billion every year in the US. So, if you see mud tubes snaking up walls or the foundation of your home, or notice soft spots in floors, drywall or trim, your home could be infested with termites or ants.

Bed Bugs

Even if your home is spotless, bed bugs can still invade by hitching a ride. And they’re rarely seen since they mostly come out at night while we sleep – to feed on us. Waking up with bites? Don’t wait - call us now to fix your problem.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How frequently should my home be serviced?


It really depends on any number of factors. The schedule for preventative treatments will be different from follow-up treatments for infestations. If your home is surrounded by trees, bushes and heavy vegetation, it may be more frequently. For our customers with high traffic homes, kids coming in and out from playing, open doors tend to invite the outdoors in. Depending on your situation, we’ll put together the best plan for you and walk you through our recommendations.




Do I need to leave when you're treating a home or a business?


We use low-odor and the safest treatments possible, so leaving your home or business while removing children and pets is entirely up to you. Whatever you feel comfortable with, we’ll accommodate.




Do you reccomend also winter treatment?


Ongoing treatments of your property during the winter are a great way to be ready for spring when nature comes alive and bugs emerge from the deep freeze. This early intervention can protect you from major issues and are worth following through on.




Do I need to worry about termites if I have a brick home?


While your façade or siding may be brick, termites will exploit even the smallest crack to get in and start devouring the wood framing in your walls and around windows – from your basement to your attic and roof. Have wood floors and doors? They’ll eat those, too.




I noticed termites outside my house but never inside, is my house in any danger?


Termites on your property don’t always equate to termites in your home. We’ll come out and conduct a thorough inspection to ensure they haven’t invaded, then treat the out building to kill the colony before they can turn their attention and appetite to your home.




How are mice getting into my home?


Unfortunately, a mouse only needs a hole one quarter of an inch, or the size of a dime to get into your structure. Sealing off those entry points will help deter mice and other pests.




Why are roaches so hard to get rid of?


There are three reasons that make getting rid of cockroaches so difficult. The first is that these insects can hide in the smallest of cracks or crevices. The second is that cockroaches will eat anything, including glue on paper bags and boxes. The third reason is that they reproduce every 30 days and may have 30 to 50 babies each time.




What can you do about stinging insects?


The first step in controlling any pest is to identify it correctly. There are many kinds of beneficial flies that closely resemble wasps, and there are many kinds of "solitary" wasps, such as sand wasps, which also look exactly the same as yellow jackets, but pose a lower hazard. After the type of pest is identified there are a variety of control methods that a professional could take. Many pest control professionals practice a new technique called integrated pest management, or IPM. This technique involves removing the pest's food, water and shelter. In the case of stinging insects, this could involve cleaning up your yard and sanitizing outdoor areas. The professional will use appropriate steps and techniques to address the particular type of infestation. Vacuuming is a new technique in stinging insect control.




Why are bedbugs so hard to treat?


Bedbugs should not be equated with filth or sanitation problems -- in hotels or in homes, for that matter. Bedbugs are very elusive, transient pests. They are hardy. They can live for a year or more without eating and can withstand a wide range of temperatures from nearly freezing to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. Bedbugs can be controlled with vigilance, constant inspection and treatment by professional pest control companies.




Are bedbugs just in beds?


Bedbugs are not just in beds. They can be in chair cushions, sofas, behind electrical outlets, cracks and crevices around baseboards, or even behind picture frames. In other words, they can be live pretty much anywhere.




How can you control bedbugs?


Any effective bedbug control strategy should start with a careful, thorough inspection by a pest control professional of all known and suspected spots where the bugs may be harboring. This is not a pest that can be controlled effectively with do-it-yourself measures. As they are discovered, the pest control professional will develop a treatment and control strategy with the customer depending on the extent of the infestation.
