Inspect:
We make sure we understand your pest issues.

To determine the most appropriate approach for you and your family, we need a complete understanding of the pest problems. This includes an understanding of the pests as well as the structural and environmental conditions that affect their populations. We conduct a thorough physical inspection of your home as well as listening to your specific concerns.

Prescribe:
The perfect solutions for you and your family.

Our experienced technicians evaluate the pest conditions and possible treatment options. Using information gathered during inspection, we prescribe a strategy to deliver the results you need. This strategy often includes a quick remedy to address current issues as well as other tactics to control the source and prevent future problems.

Communicate:
Including you in the process.

Our pest control professional always takes the necessary time and effort required to help you understand what to expect from the services we are providing, educate you on the treatment options, and tell you what you can do to assist in the process. We invite you to always ask question about your Treatment options before, during or after treatment.

Targeted application:
Implementing the plan in a responsible way.
The treatment strategy may consist of: non-chemical monitors, sealing up pest entry points, reducing food and water sources, using a Webster broom to remove accessible cobwebs, vacuuming dead insects and rodent droppings, and targeted applications to eliminate existing infestations. When chemical applications are required, our experienced pest management professionals are trained to apply the right product in the right place in the right quantity to solve the problem.

Follow-up:
Count on us to keep your house pest-free.

Pest Management is a process, not just a one-time event. Folow-up allows us tlo ensure that you are satisfied with the results during all phases of the process, the initial service and into the future.

Tips for Spring More Tips

Wood to soil contact. Keep soil from touching wood to reduce pest access. If there must be wood to soil contact (on a porch or deck) use pressure-treated wood or material which is insect resistant. Eliminate hollow porch post and columns.

Ventilation and high moisture conditions. Eliminating damp conditions, increasing ventilation and replacing decayed wood, aids carpenter ant management and helps prevent future infestations by the ants and wood destroying fungi. This may include your cellar, crawl spaces or under dirt filled porches.

Flower and shrubbery beds. Adding crushed rock around the foundation instead of mulch will eliminate a food and harborage source for sow bugs, centipedes, millipedes and many other insects. Crushed rock is also a rodent and snake deterrent.

Leaking gutters and roof lines. Keep gutters and roof lines in good repair and free of debris to reduce wood rot. This reduces breeding areas for wood destroying insects. Satellite carpenter ant colonies are usually in areas of moisture damaged wood.

Openings at plumbing, electrical, and telephone line entrances into your home. Sealing openings around these entries reduces access for carpenter ants, stinging insects, and many occasional invaders.

Excessive plant cover around the foundation. Leaves and other debris under decks, in window wells, and behind bushes should be removed to eliminate decaying organic matter which may provide a food source or harborage for insects such as sow bugs, centipedes and millipedes.
