Common Household Pests


We use a baiting method that is not harmful to your pets. We not only eliminate rodents, we find the reason why they are entering your home or business and provide solutions to stop the entry of rodents. A key to successful long-term rodent control is limiting shelter and food sources wherever possible.


We use a baiting technique to control and get rid of roaches. You don't have to vacate the home and don't have to empty all your cupboards. It is safe, non-odorous and usually needs fewer follow-up treatments, if any. Once treated, be sure to keep your kitchen clean, especially the stove and oven because cockroaches love grease.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are invasive pests that usually feed at night on sleeping hosts. They find a host by detecting the carbon dioxide and warmth given-off by the host. They hide in cracks and crevices of your home including furniture, molding, outlets, and carpet edges. Its saliva causes the swelling and itch of the bite.


Termites cause hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage to homes and businesses throughout the United States each year. We use proven, state-of-the-art and environmentally responsible termite treatment processes to reach termites where they live and breed.

Carpenter Ants

Ant colonies on your property can have devastating effects and requires immediate help from an exterminator. Ant, especially carpenter ant, control is critical as they eat wood and can destroy structures around your house. Our ant control method delivers impressive results and chemicals used are environment friendly.


While most spiders are harmless, some are venomous and their bite can have serious consequences. Spiders can be found in homes throughout the year but they are more common during warm weather. Homes located in areas favorable to spiders, such as lakes, woods or fields, are more likely to have large numbers of spiders.

Hornets & Wasps

Hornets are far more difficult and dangerous to control than other type of wasps such as paper wasps. Yellow Jackets tend to be a serious nuisance in fall as they search for discarded food. As pest control professionals, we use a safe dust to control hornets, yellow jackets, bees and other wasps.

Flies & Moths

Flies, Moths and Lady Bugs are major pests and a real nuisance. Lady buys tend to stay in soybean fields until the fall and swarm to homes after the harvest and the first chilly days of fall. The secret to their treatment is a thorough fall treatment inside and out when they first start to converge on your home.
