Home is where the heart is. It is a place to escape away to a sanctuary of peace and security. It is unsettling for most people when unwanted guests pitch their tents, or ant hills, right in the bed alongside homeowners and apartment dwellers alike.
That creepy crawly sensation is fine while watching a scary movie, but a real fright fest when it turns out to be a spider latching onto legs, or a mosquito helping himself to dinner, compliments of the home owners’ arms and legs. And no one ever said, “Hey, I’d like to share a bath with silverfish.”
While pest control is our business, we do not care to share our home (or even our office) with any creatures either. We are among the top pest controllers in the area, and provide some of the most advance and trusted methods of pest control services.
While the annoying mosquitos and bedbugs have really burrowed into the home before too long, it is still possible to realize great results with organic pest control. We start out by providing a pest inspection, where we look for bed bugs, spiders, silverfish, mosquitos, cockroaches, rodents, and even ants. The reason we do a pest inspection is to ensure that we identify what pests are in a home or business, so that we ensure we are applying the right types of pest control treatments.
The bed bug treatment will not get rid of ants, for one. Or, the way to get rid of cockroaches is not exactly going to be effective for
rodent control. Even more so, mosquito control will differ from either of those. We are an exterminator and provide fumigation if that is what the pest consultation proves will work best.
We know the ravages of termites (or white ants as they used to be known and still referred to by this name sometimes). It is incredible and horrifying to see just how much damage termites do to a home. We provide regular inspections for termite prevention to check for the multi-billion dollar problem — termite damage. That’s right, termite inspections are an important way to safeguard any home from serious damage. Think of a regular termite inspection as additional insurance for your home – it’s that important!
We know that there are right and best ways to apply termite treatment. The idea is to prevent termites in the first place. We strongly suggest installing termite barriers, which we perform. We do perform the exterra termite barriers installation along with kordon termite barriers as well to help to manage termites.
Termites are pernicious. If we allow them to have an advantage, they will take it and literally eat our customers out of house and home! No one wants to experience that. It is one of those special purposes we as pest control experts recognize. We love to help our customers enjoy their homes free from damage and the sheer fear factor of pests, especially termites.
We are experts at not only providing termite assessments, or in applying termite control methods, but more than anything, we perform termite management. Termite management is a way to ensure that the whole scenario is taken into account. We wrangle the situation into a manageable picture, where we then establish a plan of attack to win the war against termites.
We find that our pricing is competitive with the going rate for services. We cannot emphasize enough that where termites are concerned, the termite treatment cost plays second fiddle to the main purpose of controlling and eradicating termites. We emphasize making a plan and attacking the problem with everything from termite barriers to termite bait. We know how serious of a problem termites pose, and use all of the tools to keep your home safe and secure from termite damage.
We start out the process by providing a very thorough building and pest inspection for all of our customers. Whether they have a ranch with many buildings or one structure, we know the value of being thorough. It is a little bit like being an insect and pest detective, is how we like to view it. We come into the building, and start out by interviewing our customers.
Are there piles of ant hills appearing right outside the back door, where a line of ants is marching right into the home’s kitchen? Are there droppings from rodents in corners of the kitchen? Are little bites taken out of cardboard boxes in the pantry?
Does everyone in the house itch incessantly, especially when they sleep in the beds in the house? Are there little red dots all over the white sheets? Then bed bugs are eating residents alive, most likely.
During our pest and building inspection, we also look at the degree of damage and signs of termite wear and damage. Are there piles of wood shavings outside on the home’s exterior, or in other spaces?
We are thorough and identify not only what is in the home or building, but what damage they are causing, where they are living, and determine a method to exterminate them. In our inspection reports, we detail all about all of the different pests we find.
We find that it is important to call us before a renter moves into a home. Prior to signing the purchase contract for a home or building, contact us for a pre-purchase building inspection.
This degree of due diligence makes a lot of sense for the comfort of any pets or family who will be living or working in the building or home. Beyond that, it will save plenty of money on a property that is uninhabitable.
While we normally can solve problems, we will be able to give our expert and professional perspective on how pernicious and difficult a problem is to solve. If it is something that will involve rebuilding portions of the home, then it may be best to skip this property and find another home to buy instead.
We like to know that our skill, knowledge, training and expertise is capable of helping businesses and home owners make well-informed decisions that can prevent making those ill-fated million-dollar mistakes.
A pre-purchase pest inspection ensures that your due diligence is completed properly and in a timely manner. It will allow potential buyers to avoid taking on costly conveyancer fees before ever proceeding to finalising the purchase.
A part of our expertise is in managing risk and costs in a sense. We present the information that we gather from a property about the rank and number of pests living there. Then we determine how we would solve the problem, and how much work and money it would take to get to that goal.
For some businesses, a recent pest problem may be a deal breaker. For instance, for a company that wants to expend into a new location for its next bakery, an unmanageable rodent or cockroach population may not sit so well with local regulators.
It may prevent the business from being able to receive its permit to operate, which makes the new investment a waste of money. Likewise, for families who have children who have allergies, the very droppings, scales, or eggs of many rodents and insects cause full on asthma attacks, unmanageable breakouts of eczema and other skin rashes and conditions.
If we can make a family’s medical bills and pain and suffering recede just by performing our work — a pest inspection and pest plan of action — we are very satisfied. Likewise, if our work helps potential buyers avoid a money pit, we are also happy for them as well. Please think of us first, as we value our customers and the service we perform.
