Pest Control for Your Home, Business, or Multi-Tenant Complex
Pests will always find a way into our homes and offices, but we don’t have to control the problem by introducing more chemicals into our personal spaces. Our company is proud to offer pest-eliminating products as an alternative to traditional spray chemicals. Common pests like ants, cockroaches, bed bugs, crickets, etc., can be treated without harsh chemicals. Synergistic blends of plant essential oils are highly effective against a broad spectrum of insects. With no known pest resistance to our active botanical ingredients, we provide for a quick knockdown and control of insect pests. We target the octopamine neurotransmitter receptor found only in insects. It regulates insects’ heart rate, movement, behavior, and metabolism, breaking down their central nervous system. Because mammals, birds, and fish do not have receptors for octopamine, our botanical oils don’t have any adverse effects on them.
Rats and mice have adapted to live in close association with man, where they damage structures, chew wiring, eat and urinate on human and animal food, and carry many diseases. While these rodents are present around our homes throughout the year, they often become a problem in the fall and winter when they enter homes seeking warmth. Rats and mice have no respect for an economic level or status. Our area’s two most common rodents are the Norway rat and the house mouse. Both rodents are good jumpers, climbers, swimmers, and gnawers, enabling them better access to your home. They rely predominantly on smell, taste, touch, and hearing instead of vision. Rodents memorize specific pathways and use the same routes consistently. They are omnivorous, eating nearly any type of food, including dead and dying members of their species. A successful rodent control program requires the following:
•A thorough inspection and proper ID of rodent species.
•Harborage reduction and rodent-proofing structures.
•Baiting and trapping.
•Monitoring and maintenance baiting.
Our rodent control inspectors specialize in finding rodent entry points and customizing a strategy to get rid of rats & mice and keeping them away.
