What can you expect from a pest control service for your home?
Late one night, you are lying in bed and you hear a noise in the attic. Or you are sitting with friends outside over a BBQ dinner and you are assaulted by bees and mosquitos. What do you do?
All Pest Proz are the experts at keeping your home and yard pest free. The key to proper treatment is inspection. We do not charge for home inspections and upon completion, we will submit a proposal for removal, treatment and clean up if required. Soon your home will be free from rodents and pests.
What does a pest control exterminator do?
Upon inspection and identification, your technician will determine the best protocol for treatment and removal. This can include:
- Pesticides and/or natural treatment
- Use of barrier tools to eliminate access to your home
- Fumigation and fogging
- Heat treatment
Please do not attempt to utilize these methods yourself to treat for pests or wildlife problems. Pests such as bats and mice carry disease and improper use and ventilation with some pesticides can cause serious illness. Contact us for a free quote and inspection.
Inside your home:
- Seal all cracked windows, loose screens, or drafty doors.
- Keep the kitchen area clean and free from spills and crumbs.
- Remove unfinished pet food promptly and clean the area thoroughly.
- Check under sinks and in the basement for leaks and damp areas where destructive pests such as carpenter ants, termites, and rodents may harbor.
- Make sure your garbage cans are clean and emptied frequently.
Outside your home:
- Clean up yard waste and grass clippings. They provide shelter for many pests and insects.
- Store garbage cans with tightly fitted lids. If the cans are stored inside the garage, ensure the lids cannot be removed easily.
- Do not store firewood inside the garage.
- Inspect the outside of your home for entry points such as soffits and gutters where bees, birds, and wildlife can live or nest.
Below are some of the most common pests and wildlife animals that we are called upon to treat. Never take matters into your own hands when dealing with pests and wildlife. Our technicians are trained to safely treat and remove them from your home or business.
Common household pests
Mosquitos can spread dangerous diseases such as West Nile Virus, Zika Virus and Malaria. Proper treatment to eliminate mosquitoes create a happy and healthy outdoor environment for family and friends.
Ticks are dangerous to both people and pets. Treatment for ticks should be more than lawn treatment. Ticks leave the lawn in the heat of the summer and survive in the brush and bushes surrounding your yard.
Fleas are industrious and survivors. They can lay upwards of 50 eggs per day. Treatment goes beyond a flea bath for your pet. Your home should be treated before the pet returns home. Fleas also carry disease and can cause illness.
Bedbugs are a pest that feed off human blood. They can enter your home tagging along on luggage or a gym bag. Bed bugs leave humans with red, itchy bites. They infest your home at a rapid rate. It takes more than washing linens in hot water to eradicate them.
Cockroaches are pests that are highly adaptable and strong. Cockroaches leave behind droppings that look like soil or coffee grounds. These traces are commonly found near bathrooms, kitchens and damp basements or attics. They breed disease.
Termites are often discovered when a homeowner is renovating or during demolition, termites are found. They are tenacious and destructive. Even after removal, they can return. Termite treatment packages are available to ensure termites do not return to cause more damage.
Bats can gain entry to your home easily and quickly. If you hear a noise in the attic, it can be a group of bats. Outside, they are voracious feeders of mosquitos and insects. Inside your home or attic, they are dangerous. Their droppings, or guano, can leave behind disease and infection. They are truly nocturnal, and you may see them rapidly flying at dawn and dusk.
Rodents including mice and rats leave behind filth and disease. They travel easily from outdoors to inside your home, through cracks and in between the walls. If you hear the familiar sound of a scampering noise in the attic, you need to call us. When moving through your home rodents bring disease to floors, counters, and inside your walls. Trapping is effective yet finding the entry points into your home is critical.
