Our Method for Each Visit

We call and/or email you about one week before your next appointment.

Understanding Our General Pest Control

Say goodbye to a line of dead bugs on your front porch. We go beyond typical pest control by spreading granules in the yard to provide an additional barrier. Our products do not harm the lawn, yet they effectively prevent pests from reaching your home.

We carefully apply the best products on the market in a way that seals the tiny insect entry points around the walls and foundation.

Rather than spraying all of the floors and walls like some companies, we target pests where they hide. You will not need to leave the room.

For mice and a few other pests, excluding access to the home is always the preferred option. We will work with you to identify and fix pest entry points. For example, a little steel wool or caulking in the right crevice can go a long way.

Many pests prefer safe harbor in moist, dark voids. If wet-wall pest activity is suspected, we will make an application in a safe manner inside the walls through existing holes around accessible plumbing.

With advanced IPM, we do not need to lay a product down on every inch of your property to control the pests. If you need us to fix an ant hill in the back yard, some spiders on the kids play-place, or something of that nature, we will gladly perform a spot treatment at no charge on your next recurring visit.

At the conclusion of each service visit, your technician will provide you with a statement of the work performed and offer insightful tips you can apply to reduce future pest activity.
