Having a pest problem in your home is bad enough, but not being ready for the technician when he or she arrives is worst.

Being ready for a thorough inspection and treatment will give the technicians more success on eliminating your pests in one treatment.

If you want your FLEAS FOREVER – DON’T READ THIS

There are billions of ‘em — those blood sucking parasites that feed on your cats and dogs and you, too, if all else fails. The female of the species routinely consumes 15 times her body weight in blood (the flea’s favorite meal) every day. This very high protein diet enables her to lay about 25 eggs every 24 hours or so, or between 600 and 800 eggs in her lifetime.

Fleas are amazing little critters. They can jump seven or eight inches up in the air, and jump more than a foot horizontally. Fleas don’t eat only when they are hungry. In fact, they are absolute gluttons, and will continue to bite its host until they can’t eat any more. There is a reason they do this and it is critical to the survival of a flea’s life cycle. Here’s how it works.

Bed Bug Treatment Preparations | Part 2

Bed Bug After Treatment thing to Do

  1. Stay in your home. It is very important that you are still living in the home during the treatment protocol. Without a human in the home the Bed Bugs will not come out of their hiding spots and get exposed to our products. Leaving the home for the treatment protocol will only make the Bed Bugs hide until you return.
  2. Keep all items picked up like laundry, shoes, bedding, backpacks. Any item that is left on the floor by the bed can become a new nesting spot for the Bed Bugs. If these items are not treated the Bed Bugs will remain in your home.
  3. Keep all stuffed toys sealed in plastic bags until the treatment protocol is completed. This is to avoid the Bed Bugs from infesting the toys and having to be thrown out.
  4. Vacuum carpets and baseboards weekly...

FAQ about Bees | Part 2

Can I just plug up the hole and suffocate them?

If the entrance hole is plugged, the bees will look for another exit. They may find another crack or opening or they could follow light and enter your living quarters instead through gaps in baseboard, electrical outlets, or vents. However, if you do succeed in trapping the bees in the wall, expect to have a stench from the hive in the wall, and it is very probable that honey will seep out of the structure.

Will the bee’s just leave on there own if I don’t do anything about it?

No, if left alone the bees will just continue working, building more and more honey and laying more and more eggs. Eventually, your beehive can grow to be hundreds of pounds and up to forty thousand bees...

A Little Info On Roach Treatments to help Eliminate Infestations | Part 2

Sanitation

If it is low, then cockroaches have abundant food sources and they will not be feeding on any type of baits. While this doesn’t happen often, it does occur and other steps should be taken to eliminate the infestation before switching to baits. For example, we want to use a traditional pest elimination approach using directed contact applications of very mild and low toxicity material applied with an applicator designed to inject these materials deeply into cracks, crevices and voids were the roaches like to hide. A micro-injector or an Actisol unit can perform this task...
