Commonly asked questions about pest control.

1What does an exterminator do?
An exterminator is your first line of defense against pests. They are trained, certified, and experienced in pest extermination and removal. This involves the inspection of a home or business to identify what type of pest you have, where it is nesting, how it is entering the premise, and why it is entering the premise. A control plan is devised based on this information and carried out by the exterminator.

2What is a pest control technician?
The title of pest control technician is interchangeable with an exterminator. Both professionals carry out the same work and use the same methods. Pest control doesn’t always mean elimination, though. An exterminator typically takes measures to control an infestation and a pest control technician takes measures to eliminate an infestation.

3How is pest control done?
There are three types of pest control procedures:

    • Biological pest control: This uses chemical agents and may involve baits, pheromones, sprays, and repellants.
    • Physical pest control: Exterminators manually remove pests and use control methods like barriers, sealants, and environmental manipulation to control pests.
    • Mechanical pest control: Mechanical devices include traps, bait stations, and other devices designed to prey on the behavior of a specific pest.

4How do you control pests?
Our exterminators use the right method for the job. We take into account the property, pest type,
and residents of the home. Certain methods aren’t used when small animals or children are present. We always target our efforts as well. That means identifying paths your pest uses, where they are present, and using their feeding areas and times against them to achieve the fastest and most complete results.

5How do you prevent pests?
Pest prevention depends on what you’re trying to prevent. Some best practices we always advise customers to follow are to keep all food items (including those for pets) in air-tight containers. Make sure there are no leaks in your home (including the attic and basement). Mechanical exclusion involves sealing off all entry points into the home. This is difficult for homeowners to accomplish without help, but you can keep your lawn and surrounding areas clean and free of debris. If there are any trees or bushes that provide roof access for pests, move these away from the home or trim them shorter than the roof line.
