RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL EXTERMINATION
Insects need shelter, moisture and food. Your home provides all of these and without the presence of their natural predators - lizards, bats and owls. This is why they have a constant desire to enter and live in your home year round.
How do pests affect your environment?
They cause physical damage to your structure and possessions, spread germs, irritate allergies and generally make the living environment uncomfortable by virtue of their presence.
How do pests invade your environment?
They enter via cracks as small as 1/64 of an inch, access holes where pipes and wires enter your home and around window sills.

PREVENTATIVE BED BUG TREATMENT
There are many possible signs of bed bug activity. The first would be seeing the bugs. Adult bed bugs are about the shape and size of an apple seed. A second sign would be case skins. As the juvenile bugs grow, they shed their skins, discovery of which can indicate their presence.
After feeding, bed bugs return to their harborage to hide. They eventually defecate in these areas, which appears as black to brown stains on porous surfaces or black to brown mounds on nonporous surfaces.
Bites also may indicate bed bug activity, but further signs will need to be found, since other sources can cause red welts on the skin.
The most effective method of addressing a suspected bed bug infestation is to contact a local pest control company. Our experts will conduct a thorough inspection to ensure that your infestation is, in fact, a bed bug population and will then arrange for appropriate treatment.
RODENT & WILDLIFE REMOVAL
Rodents are warm-blooded mammals that, like humans, can be found throughout the world. They have oversized front teeth for gnawing and check teeth, which are adapted for chewing. Rodents chew on a variety of items available to them and cause great damage in and around homes.
Rodents tend to be rapid breeders. Some species breed year-round, and populations are maintained through constant reproduction. Because of the rodents’ body plan, they are capable of squeezing through spaces that appear to be much too small for them. All such holes should be sealed to prevent entry and reentry of rodents. A pest control professional should be contacted for assistance.
Rats and mice are both extremely destructive within agricultural communities. A number of species feed on seeds and grains. The feces and urine of some rodents may contaminate surfaces with which they come into contact.
Controlling wildlife is a challenging task. Since many of these are protected species, it’s advised to consult local conservation offices before starting. Finding entry points is a mandatory first step. After determining how they are entering the structure, their schedule and habits inside should be noted. Be sure to identify the number of animals and if they have young nesting. Often, they will burrow under insulation to nest, so discovery may not be easy.
Once the rodents are found and removed, it is important to make sure affected areas are cleaned and disenfected, preferably with an antimicrobial agent.
Wildlife can be a challenge to control. It’s advised that a professional be contacted to handle the situation.
BEEHIVE & STINGING PEST REMOVAL
Many stinging pests can be ground-nesters. They not only build aerial nests, their colonies can be found under porches or steps, in sidewalk cracks, around railroad ties or at the base of trees. Sometimes the queen uses a wall void of a building as a nesting place. Some wasps build aerial nests in bushes or low-hanging branches or in the corners of buildings and other manmade structures.
Signs of an infestation dependent on species, but most often the workers and the nest are the most likely indicators.
Known to be aggressive defenders of their colonies, bees and wasps are otherwise not quick to sting. The sting from one of these is painful, and depending on the species, the insect is capable of delivering multiple stings. Wasps are equipped with lancelike stingers with small barbs, and compared to the larger barbs in honey bees, yellow jackets are capable of stinging repeatedly. Stings from these pests may induce severe allergic reactions in some individuals.
