The answer to this question is pretty simple. If you see just a few ants or just one mouse, those few ants or one mouse have a whole bunch of buddies lurking where you can’t see them. If you have even a slightly visible problem then you have a problem. Left untreated, you could have a crisis.

We use state-of-the-art low toxicity chemicals that are much less harmful to people, pets, and their environments than what is currently offered by the majority of the pest control market. During the service our technicians will take the time to explain how the products work, explain what choices of products there are, and together decide what is the best choice for you.

Because we use low toxicity chemicals, you can usually stay home during the treatment. Interior chemical liquid applications require you to leave for a minimum of four (4) hours. Just about everything else can be taken care of while you’re relaxing on the living room couch.

Children need to leave during a liquid chemical treatment and may return a minimum of four (4) hours after the chemical application is complete. We ask that during treatments, you either put your pets in a room that is not being treated or remove them from the structure until the materials we have used are dry. Fish tanks need to be covered and turned off, birds need to be removed from the premises.

We stand behind all of our work. Should any problems arise within a reasonable amount of time after the completion of the job, we will return for no extra charge, completely hassle-free.

Many products applied outdoors are formulated to bond with the soil so as not to be effected by rain.

Bed bugs are picked up primarily when people are staying in multi dwelling buildings such as hotels, hostels, hospitals, apartment buildings etc… The host needs to be in the same area such as a bed or couch for an extended period of time allowing the bed bug the opportunity to feed.

The most common cockroach in North America is the German Cockroach. Roaches hitch rides in cardboard boxes, food, and clothing. They prefer warm, humid environments such as kitchens. Because of their high reproductive rate one or two roaches can quickly become one or two hundred.

Skunks make homes under sheds, decks, and front porches in urban areas. The entrance to their den is approximately one (1) foot in diameter. Stuff the entrance of a potential skunk den with newspaper. If the paper is moved then you know you have a skunk problem.
