Pest Control

Simply put, pest control is any activity that has an end result of pest extermination. When you think of rodent control, traps probably pop up in your mind. Trapping rodents is definitely a form of control. If you have an infestation of bed bugs, traps might help identify the pest, but you will still have bed bugs. The best control method for bed bugs is temperature. That’s right, temperature. You see, bed bugs cannot survive when temperatures reach 122 degrees. Because heat is their weakness, we raise the temperature of your home and bake the bed bugs until they die. Since termites nest inside the wood of your walls, the best type of pest control is gas. Gas is able to penetrate your walls and sink into all of the tunnels formed by the termites. We have to understand the pests to know what type of pest control we will be using. Pest control is species dependent. Our technicians have the knowledge base to understand how to exploit weaknesses and use the right type of pest control for the right type of circumstance.

Pest Prevention

Pest prevention is any activity that will keep you from getting a pest infestation. With rodents, we perform a perimeter walk around your home and find any potential entry points. Mice can fit through a hole the size of a nickel, while rats can fit through a hole the size of a quarter. Once the potential entry points have been identified, we seal them up to prevent rodents from getting into your house and creating an infestation. Bed bug prevention is all about education. Bed bugs are expert hitchhikers. If you go to a movie theater, hotel, restaurant, school, hospital, or other location that has an infestation of bed bugs, you could bring one home with you. They can ride in your luggage, purse, backpack, or even on your clothing.
