Our general pest control service covers 75 different types of insects and spiders including:

  • Cockroaches
  • Ants
  • Spiders
  • Biting and Stinging Pests
  • Rodents*

Cockroaches

Damage:

Cockroaches spread human disease by depositing disease organisms on food and utensils. The American cockroach, which comes into contact with human excrement in sewers or with pet droppings, may transmit bacteria that cause Salmonella and Shigella. German cockroaches are believed to be capable of transmitting disease–causing organisms such as Staphylococcus, hepatitis, and coliform bacteria. They also have been implicated in the spread of typhoid and dysentery.

Recent studies have found a strong association between the presence of cockroaches and increases in the severity of asthma symptoms in individuals (particularly children) who are sensitive to cockroach allergens.

Detection and Treatment:

Cockroaches may become pests in homes, restaurants, hospitals, warehouses, offices, and virtually any structure that has food preparation or storage areas. These pests are common even in the cleanest of crowded urban areas and older dwellings. It's usually not difficult to discover an infestation, because they are often visible. Treatment usually involves sealing cracks and crevices to block entrance; keeping food and trash areas clean to avoid providing food; and the professional application of insecticide and bait on a regular basis.

Ants

Damage:

Ants cause various types of damage, depending upon the variety. Carpenter ants tunnel through wood, destroying structures. Pharaoh ants may transmit serious diseases. A fire ant's sting is potentially deadly to susceptible individuals, and all ants contaminate the food they infest. The most common ant in our area is the Argentine Ant. These hard working ants join together from different colonies and your house may be invaded by thousands of them with an hour.

Detection and Treatment:

Ants build massive colonies, so their presence is generally detected when you see their nests, or the ants themselves. Treatments involve baiting, insecticide, and sealing off entry to buildings.

Spiders

Some spiders are harmful to humans. The most recognizable of these are the black widow and brown recluse, but there are many spiders with venom that affect humans differently. This is similar to bees and wasps where you may know someone who is highly allergic to bee stings but you just get a small itchy spot for a few days. When it's important to control spiders, pest control materials are used, along with destruction of webs and eggs. Since they feed on insects, measures that control unwanted insects will also reduce spider populations.

Biting and Stinging Pests

Damage:

Bees, wasps and scorpions are dangerous because of their painful and potentially harmful stings.

Many people suffer from massive swelling and itching.

Detection and Treatment:

Wasp nests and bee hives can be removed by professionals with protective gear. Never get the bees and wasps upset. There are now many strains of Africanized honeybees in our area and trying to deal with them without professional help is foolish. Freezing, insecticides and specially treated dusts are the most effective treatments. The same is true of scorpions…don't get close!

Rodents*

Damage:

Rodents consume and contaminate food. They also gnaw on electrical wires, wooden structures, and tear insulation in walls and ceilings for nesting. Rodents can also transmit disease to humans, pets, and livestock. They have been found to transmit typhus, Hantavirus, leptospirosis, trichinosis, and salmonellosis.
*While control of mice is included with regular service, rats are much more difficult to deal with and will incur an extra charge.

Detection and Treatment:

The presence of mice and rats is usually detected by the damage they cause to food and structures, by their droppings, and by their nests. Treatment involves eliminating all entry points and population reduction by the application of rodenticides and traps. Droppings should also be cleaned up and the area disinfected. Learn more.
