We have just completed a new install for bedbug, roach, mice, and other pest monitoring and preventive exterminating at a donation drop-off store that is geared to help out the community but in doing so this type of store runs a very high risk of spreading pests such as bedbugs, carpet beetles, and roaches. This is in no way the intention of the store nor the people making donations. These pest are masters at hiding

We use some of the most sophisticated technology available to manage our pest control services. It’s a cloud-based software called Fieldwork. What does this mean for you as an Akita customer?

This is the story of the worst roach job I’ve ever done.   The photos in this post are from a heavy roach job done in 2008. As bad as those may seem to you (and it is), it was nothing compared to the worst job I have ever done. Unfortunately, there are no pictures for this job since it was done back in the early nineties before portable digital cameras. *** This home was

We first started bed bug work in 2005 as Akita Pest Control. Prior to 2005, I had minimal training at a large pest control company that I worked for simply because it was very new. When we opened Akita, we dove straight into becoming the best bedbug control service in the area, while keeping the prices low.
