Why do I need more than one treatment for fleas, ticks, and bed bugs?

Certain bugs have different life cycles that do not respond to treatments. These bugs will require a 2nd treatment.

What can I expect during the first visit?

During our first visit, a technician will come to your home or business and inspect the infested area. We will then customize a plan to suit your individual needs.

How can I prevent bugs from entering my home?

  • Eliminate standing water. Pests, such as ants, mosquitoes and termites, are attracted to damp areas.
  • Keep tree branches / plants cut back from the house. Pests use these branches to get into your home.
  • Seal cracks and crevices in the walls and around the bottom of your house. Pests may use these to invade your home.
  • Keep firewood and building materials away from your home. Pests like to build nests in stacks of wood.
  • Remove leaf piles, compost piles or other vegetation from around your home.
  • Remove trash from around any standing water.
  • Clean and vacuum frequently.
  • Keep your yard clean of garbage and pet droppings.
  • Protect pets with flea and tick treatments. Take them to the vet at least once a year to make sure they haven’t been infested.
  • Screen windows, doors and other openings with fine mesh.
