We offer several rotational options to fit the needs of each one of our customers, such as: weekly, bi-weekly, monthly and quarterly agreements.
Ants, Spiders, Crickets, Roaches, Mice, Stink Bugs and Pantry Pests are just some of the pests included as part of our pest agreement.
The ants that you see are worker ants. Their job is to find food and take it back to feed the queen and her young, who are being groomed as the next generation of worker ants.
Because of this, if they are sprayed and killed, the colony will simply send out more workers to take their place. So instead, we treat along the trails the ants follow. The workers find the bait, carry it back to the nest, and feed the queen, eliminating her and future populations.
If you are having an issue with ants, it’s best to call a licensed pest control professional to properly inspect the home and recommend the appropriate treatment method.
The most-common pantry pests are moths, weevils and small beetles.
Most pantry pests like to munch on grains, like flours, cereals and processed foods, as well as dried fruits, beans, nuts and spices.
Transfer grains, cereals, nuts, dried fruit and the like to glass, metal or sturdy plastic containers with airtight lids. They keep insects out much better than cardboard, paper or foil. Store pantry basics in a cool, dry, dark place, and give your pantry a thorough cleaning every three to six months (which will help you stay organized and keep pests at bay)
Fungus Gnats – are small flies that erratically bounce through the air. Odds are if you have live plants in a room they are noticed in, or an adjacent room, then you can pretty much figure that fungus gnats are your pest. These little guys breed in soil and the potting soil of houseplants are often the perfect bedding. These plants are watered frequently and offer a nice moisture layer for the larvae to grow into mature adult gnats. If you have fungus gnats, we would recommend cutting back on the watering of the houseplants and treating the soil with an insecticide.
Fruit Flies – are small, brownish/black flies. They have a thicker body than fungus gnats and fly a smoother path to their destination. As their name suggests, fruit flies love ripe fruit and vegetables because those areas are seen as the perfect breeding ground for laying eggs. Any fermenting (read rotting) food or area of moist organic material will be attractive to fruit flies, which includes our garbage cans, compost bins, and even the residues that coat our sink drains or garbage disposals... yuck!
Drain Flies – are again another tiny fly. They have a hairy body with large wings. As you would guess, they breed in the slime that coats so many of our drains in our house. Typically, we find them coming from drains in the basement or garage that are rarely used, but they can come up through drains used more frequently in our kitchen or the bathrooms.
These pests can typically be found in humid, moist areas of the home including basements, attics and bathrooms. People have noticed silverfish when they come down on ceiling soffits and/or drop from skylights and canister light fixtures in the ceiling, likely entering through shake roofs.
Get a dehumidifier for your home, repair leaky pipes and drains, and eliminate or repair any moldy or wet wood. Also don't keep old books and magazines in areas where silverfish are usually found like basements, attics and garages. And it's important to keep food items such as flour and sugar in tight containers.
If a silverfish infestation is suspected or found, it’s best to call a licensed pest control professional to properly inspect the home and recommend the appropriate treatment method.
Flies have been a nuisance insect for thousands of years. They affect human welfare because they can transmit diseases. Flies such as the common house fly are classified as filth flies because they breed in rotten food, manure, and garbage. A fly can mature from egg to adult in as few as ten days. This quick maturity can cause a severe fly problem in a short period of time. Getting rid of flies long term begins with proper sanitation and exclusion.
• Keep garbage cans and dumpsters clean. Keep tight lids on the garbage cans.
• Repair window screens and doors.
• Pick up pet waste in the yard. Flies love to breed and lay eggs on this material because of the moisture content.
• Dead rodents and birds can increase a fly problem.
• Keep outdoor areas cleaned. Clean away any soiled bedding, decaying plant, straw animal matter.
