Pest Control

You’re on your way to the medicine cabinet because you can’t sleep, your allergies are keeping you up; then when you turn on the light, you see them. One of the worst surprises a homeowner can find in the middle of the night is cockroaches.

As the weather starts warming up, the threat of pests coming into your home increases.

Address Entry Points

The colder temperatures and precipitation of winter can have quite an impact on your home. Your first line of protection against pests is to walk around the perimeter of your home, looking for any cracks or openings around utilities and pipes that go into your home. Seal all of these entry points with silicone caulk, no matter how small they may seem. Mice only need a spot the size of a dime for entry and bugs can fit through the tiniest spaces.

While you are tackling the perimeter of your home, also check for any damaged or loose areas of mortar along your foundation and around your windows. Repair or seal these areas as well if they’ve been damaged. (more…)

If rodents can find a way into your house, they will be more than happy to become your newest houseguest. As the weather becomes colder, people’s homes provide the perfect place for rodents to find warmth and protection.


Unfortunately, it is not very difficult for rodents to get into your home and once they’re inside, the problems will start. Here are some facts about rats & mice you may not know, but will help you understand how to better guard against them. (more…)

Whether you are in the food service, hospitality, manufacturing, grocery, or healthcare industries, you need commercial pest control. Pests can wreak havoc on your establishment, and create a wide range of issues for business owners, employees, and customers alike.

Food Service Industry

For those in the restaurant industry, commercial pest control is a necessity, regardless of whether you have seen any insects or not. Once you have seen roaches, mice, or other pests, you will already have a large infestation issue on your hands. In addition, if you can see evidence of a problem, you can be sure that your customers may see it as well. If this happens, your facility’s reputation and bottom line can take a serious hit.

Hospitality Services

Pests can also be devastating for those in the hospitality industry, especially if the infestation includes bedbugs, rodents, or cockroaches. While you may not think that you have an issue, it is important to remember that a patron that sees only a single insect can spread word of that sighting through the use of social media faster than ever. As a result, a single sighting can reach hundreds of people in a very short time, which can have serious implications for your establishment. (more…)

Rodent ControlIn most instances, you will often notice the evidence of having a rodent problem in your home or office before you actually ever see one. And while your first inclination may be to reach for the strongest rat or mouse pellets you can find, you might want to rethink that strategy. Rodenticides will most likely kill a few of the rodents infesting your home, but they may not kill them all.

Having rodents present in your home poses health risks to everyone in the home. Their droppings can trigger allergic reactions and asthma. The parasites that they carry can transmit disease like the bubonic plague to members of your family. And, they can track a variety of bacteria, germs, and parasites onto your food stores and dishes for you to ingest.

Fortunately there are ways to eliminate existing infestations and discourage future infestations while minimizing the use of harsh and dangerous chemicals. Integrated pest management plans can not only address your rodent concerns, but can also provide benefits for the environment as well. (more…)
