Pest Control Starts with Finding Out How They Got in in the First Place
We use special diagnostic equipment to determine air leakage in your home that can provide entry points for pests. We seal entry points for pests like mice, rats, squirrels, bats or snakes and keep them from entering your home. The image shows blower door - test door to help determine a home's airtightness. This special door detects air leaks in your home.
Another great tool in detecting air leakage within a building is thermal imaging camera. Infrared imaging is especially useful when looking for insulation defects, because it allows us to actually view the apparent temperatures in a given area not seen by a naked eye.
Missing or inadequate insulation, damaged siding, rotted wood around the exterior of the roof, unscreened attic vents are some of the examples of potential entry points for both small animals and insects. Protect your home - give us a call today.
Now that the spring warm weather is finally here, carpenter bees become an issue for homeowners. They are big, bold, in your face bees that are scary. Carpenter bees are not terribly aggressive, but they bore through wood, lay eggs and close it in a special cell complete with its own food supply - a combination of pollen and regurgitated nectar. One of these tunnels or galleries can contain up to 6 sealed cells and can be 6 inches long. Galleries used by multiple bees can extend up to 10 feet. Even if the larva inside the galleries is killed, the adults can come back later, even over winter, in these tunnels and it will be back to business the following spring.
What we recommend doing is not only killing the developing larva, but if possible wrapping the wood in aluminum flashing so that the carpenter bees can never use that wood again. It may cost a little more but it is a permanent solution that helps protect your biggest investment - your home.
Have critters in your attic? Consider the following.
Animals defecate and frequently. Urine and feces can carry diseases. Here are a few:
Carried in the urine of white footed mice. Can produce flu-like symptoms and can progress causing serious respiratory problems.
It is a type of lung infection spread by the spores of the Histoplasma capsulatum fungus. It is commonly found in the feces of bats and birds and can cause serious respiratory issues for people with poor immune systems.
We are not only your trusted exterminator. We are experts in anything that concerns your home and know how to keep it healthy - beyond routine pest control.
How much does it cost to professionally remove bed bugs?
For a heat treatment bed bug removal, expect to pay anywhere from $600 and up, but killing bed bugs with spores is substantially less expensive. While heat treatments are the most organic and effective, we do now offer more choices. Different types of treatment can be combined.
We could heat-treat your worst bed bugs infested bedrooms, and then use fungal spores on the rest of your house. This will cost a lot less than heat treating the entire house.
