Residential Service Plan

Regardless of the time of year, undesirable pests are surrounding your home, seeking entrance whenever and wherever they have a chance.

Our recurring services are like a shield for your home. Imagine the perimeter of your home encircled with a band of protection, a barrier against unwanted pests. However, the products we use will naturally wear off over time. This is why we return on a regularly scheduled routine to maintain that protection.

What we do

We begin with an initial treatment, flushing out and eliminating any existing pest populations. Because many pest have differing life cycles, you may still notice some occasional pest activity. It is important to break the egg cycle of the pests or they will just keep coming. That is our focus during the first few visits. Of course, we do want to know if you’re noticing an abundance of activity between the regular visits. Once the pest population has been eliminated the following services work to keep the pests from returning. Each new season brings new pests so our technicians are always diligently on the look out for new threats.

Why it works

We use a proven combination of products that each work in their own way to eliminate pest problems. Some products target several different varieties of pests, while others focus on specific pests. A few work immediately, but many of the products we use are designed to work over a period of time. Let’s use ants as an example to explain why.

A line of ants has arrived on your counter top. Your first instinct is to kill them all. But then more arrive. You’ll kill those too, and the next group. The ants figure it out and show up on a different counter instead. The colony is still there and still needs food. Our approach is to place a gel where the ants are looking for food. The ants will gather this “food” and take it back to the colony to share. This eliminates the entire colony instead of just the foragers.

Some pests, like fleas and roaches, require a more aggressive approach. The process of eradicating spiders begins by doing away with their food source. No matter which pest you’re facing, our team of skilled technicians can get the job done.

Pests

WARNING: This page contains photos of insects and other pests.

There are good bugs and there are bad bugs. And no bug belongs indoors.

Ants, spiders, crickets and roaches are just a few of the invaders we deal with. However we do take steps to ensure we’re not harming the good guys. Let’s start you off with some photos of good guys.

We don’t want to harm our pollinating friends like honey bees and butterflies. There are also insects, dragon flies and praying mantises for example, that eat the bad bugs. Can you believe some people will even buy insects such as lady bugs to control aphids and other garden pests?

Nuisance pests:

Some insects are just a nuisance. These bugs are of minor health concerns or structural threat. Notice I do not say none. Every pest holds at least as much danger of spreading illness and damaging property as a toddler does.

These insects belong outside, but will sometimes wander inside. Usually in search of food or water. However, some insects like our useful friend the lady bug will invade in large numbers just because they want a warm place for the winter.

Especially unwelcome pests:

Insects and pests that spread disease and/or cause structural damage are unfortunately becoming more prevalent. And contrary to what many believe, they do not only choose old or filthy homes to infest. Cockroaches, for example, could hitch a ride into your home in grocery bags, cardboard boxes, and second hand appliances.

Pests can also trigger allergies and asthma, especially in children.

Beware these bugs:

There are more than just bees and spiders that can cause a painful bite or sting. This final group of insects are the ones you want to steer clear of.
