Safety

Your family’s safety is of great concern to us. We take special precautions to remove and prevent pests and insects without harming your family or pets.
See how we keep your safety in mind for our residential pest control treatments.

Our Treatments are Safe for Your Family

Our home treatments are applied into the cracks and crevices of your house, where only pests can reach. Treatments are applied in levels that are most effective at eradicating the pests, but not harmful for pets or humans.

For regularly-scheduled preventive treatments, our team will let you know when a treatment is applied. This gives you the peace of mind that your pest problem is taken care of in a safe, effective manner.

If you ever have any questions or concerns about the safety of a treatment, do not hesitate to contact us. We would be glad to help you better understand our approach to safety and eliminating pests.

Preventive Measures

As part of our extermination services, we advice and educate you on best practices for preventing pests and insects. By reducing the conditions and locations that pests love to live and hide (called harborage), you can minimize the pest activity around your home.

Some simple tips for preventing pests around your home:

  • Open up your landscaping. Let the sun shine in by trimming trees and bushes, and don’t let your grass get overgrown.
  • Seal any gaps in your home, including garage door seals, along windows and around doors, and any place where wiring or plumbing enters the house.
  • Trash cans should be in good working order, free of holes and with a good lid that closes tightly.
  • Clean up after your bird feeder. Bird feeders can attract many unwanted pests, including mice, ants, crickets, beetles, rats, squirrels, skunks, and more. Our recommended tips for keeping a bird feeder includes emptying it at night, cleaning up spilled seed, and keeping it in a location away from possible pest harborage.

According to the National Pesticide Information Center, the majority of misapplications and safety issues are by homeowners, not pest control professionals. Don’t try the DIY approach; keep your family safe by contacting our trained professionals to remove your unwanted pests.
