How do I know if I need extermination?

If you have tried hardware or grocery store pest control "do it yourself" products and problems persist, you need a professional. When you see a few ants you may not realize that most ant colonies consist of thousands of workers but only a very small percentage are outside of the nest at any one time. If you see or hear a mouse or rat there are usually more. Because rodents are known to carry many different diseases we always recommend a professional experienced pest control service. Typically, if you see an occasional insect in more than one location inside your home you may have a problem that calls for professional assistance.

What are your "environmentally sound alternatives?"

We practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Our services are tailored specifically to our clients own unique circumstances. We use the lowest dosage of product at the lowest toxicity to control the problem pest population. We also carry a full line of natural products, some are EPA exempt. When the interior of a home has to be treated we use precision injection application, we never spray baseboards as many companies do. We also apply residual dusts to the inside of wall cavities through wall outlets and switch plates when the situation warrant’s.

On the outside our service commonly consists of removing spider webs around the perimeter of the structure, sealing insect access points, identifying harborage and breeding sites and treating for target specific pests. We also make recommendations to clients to help reduce the necessity of chemicals by providing them with a Home Maintenance Report.

Our vehicles are stocked with over thirty different products so we have a large variety to tailor your service to meet your specific needs.

I have a whole bunch of pests and a lot of them. Do you have a solution?

Treatments and service frequencies are based on several factors:

  • Type of pest(s)
  • Degree of infestation
  • Length of time of the infestation
  • Conducive conditions in and around the home

How long do I have to leave the premises?

Because we use low toxicity chemicals, you can usually stay home during the treatment. Flea treatments typically require you to leave 2-3 hours or until the treated area are dry. If the room (s) requiring treatment can be avoided until the carpeted areas are dry, leaving the house is not required. Roaches, ants, mice, termites, and just about everything else can be taken care of while you're relaxing on the living room couch.

What about pets and children?

When treatment on the interior of the home is required we ask that infants and small children stay out of the immediate treatment area during the the treatment process.

Do the chemicals you use have a real bad odor?

Another great benefit of low toxicity chemicals is odorless or virtually odorless pest control. No longer do you need to be reminded that you received extermination by a nasty, lingering odor.

Do you guarantee your work?

We stand behind all of our work. Should any problems arise within a reasonable amount of time after the completion of the job, we will return for no extra charge, completely hassle-free.
