A lot is written about ant identification but in most cases the customers tell me “I don’t care what species of ant it is or what you call them, I just want them GONE!” The good news is that advancements in products and technology have made ant treatments easier, more efficient and safer.
We will need some basic information to help us solve this problem such as what color the ants are, where they’re located, how big they are and if you’ve ever had this problem before and we’ll figure out the rest. The first step in getting rid of them is to call or e-mail us; we’ll take it from there.
Just the mention of them sends shivers up your spine. These blood sucking devils have made a resurgent come back. They’re not only plaguing hotels now, but bed bugs have found their way into our homes. This is one of the most difficult insects to eliminate and one that you can’t live with. These cryptic bloodsuckers live in the folds and creases of your bed out of sight and emerge at night while you and your family are sleeping to feed on your blood! Because their saliva has a numbing agent in it you don’t feel the penetration as the insect feeds on you.
In the morning, however, the skin reacts to the unsanitary saliva and becomes infected causing red bumps that itch and swell slightly. You can’t live with bedbugs and the longer you wait; the harder it is to eliminate the problem. Like roaches, the success of the treatment depends on the partnership between the treatment company and the clients, both need to work together to solve this difficult problem. Don’t be sold on “easy fixes”, bed bug elimination takes effort and compliance. Call today to speak with a trained inspector to determine the next course of action.
Great and necessary for the environment BUT AT A DISTANCE PLEASE! Bees and wasps sting and for some people that’s life threatening! The bees and wasps that you should be concerned with are those nesting in or on your structure, which is the threat. Bees pollinating around your flowers and plants are doing what nature intends for them to do, but when these stinging friends decide to set up house with you it is time to draw the line.
Bees and wasps also have a nasty habit of swarming to protect them; this can be a life-threatening thing even if you are not allergic to them. With that being said, why would you consider treating it yourself? Would you consider performing your own root canal? Of course not, leave the bee / wasp treatment to a trained professional. If you have bees / wasps nesting in or on your structure call us, we’ll figure out what type you’re dealing with and tell you how the problem can be solved. Don’t risk injury or worse, it’s not worth it.
Roaches are not easy; don’t buy into any slick salesman’s pitch. Roaches, no matter what kind, German, Oriental, American or Martian, whatever, roaches are not easy. Proper control or elimination of roach infestations has to be a partnership with the client and the technician treating the home. Also, there is no “magic wand” or miracle product, it is a series of treatments designed to reduce the population until the problem is either under control or solved. This is rarely done in one treatment, don’t be fooled.
The goal is to control or get rid of the problem for good, not just a short period of time. A phone call to our Call Center can assist you today to take the first step as you talk to our on call inspector to determine what is the best course of action for you to consider. With roaches, it only gets worse the longer you wait.
There are thousands of different species of fly, but many are found in the wild and do not come into contact with humans. The common fly pest species are the Cluster Fly and the Housefly. During summer and early autumn Cluster flies are no problem and go about their business without coming into contact with humans, but towards the end of the autumn they seek out likely places to spend the winter. If they did this in small numbers the Cluster fly would not be considered a pest, but unfortunately this is not the case, and they can sometimes be found in vast numbers in one loft whilst the neighbours on either side have none. Large numbers often produce a stick smell. On warm, sunny days, the flies often emerge from their hiding place and swarm on windows causing great annoyance by their buzzing and by their presence. Dead flies provide a food source for the larder beetle and can contribute to the presence of other nuisance insects in the house. Houseflies are a health risk and can spread diseases such as food poisoning and dysentery
Cute, cartoonish..NOT! Rats and mice are responsible for the spread of a number of diseases either directly or by contamination of food or indirectly by way of rodent fleas and mice. Rats continuously gnaw to keep the growth of their teeth in check and to gain entrance to obtain food and shelter.
Rats and mice destroy approximately ten times more food through urination and defecation then they actually eat. Additionally rats and mice are blamed for the majority of house fires in the United States and around the world as they chew through the electrical wires in walls and attics. Rodents (rats and mice) present a significant health and safety issue in our homes.
Termites feed on wood with the aid of protozoans that live in their digestion system. Termites have proven to cause devastating damages to structures.
