It is recommended you spray your house at least 3 times per year. The best time is in the Spring (April/May), in the Summer (July/August), and then again in the Fall (September/October/November).
This schedule will help to keep your home free of most pests including spiders. We recommend spraying the entire outside of your house, including underneath the eaves of the house, the siding, around the base of the foundation, and out into the yard. We do spray underneath the house or basement. This is only recommended once per year as a cleanout. We recommend spraying inside the house only if you are having a problem with insects inside! If you haven’t received a good spray in a few years or more, it is best to do the inside because an exterior spray will not kill anything on the inside of the house. After that, the maintenance sprays will help keep the spiders out!
Keep your trees & shrubs looking good all year long! Common pests are Elm Beetle, Box elder bugs, Aphids, Earwigs, and Clover mites. We can also spray your yard to help control mosquitoes, gnats, and other biting insects!
Depending on what trees & shrubs you have in your yard, there are several solutions to keeping them pest free.
Our certified arborists, Greg and Charlie, are available to perform tree health evaluations, disease diagnosis and treatments for diseases.
Pre-Emergent and Systemic treatments:
We offer pre-emergent dormant oil sprays in the Spring (February/March), which will smother the eggs left over from last year. This is very effective on aphids and box elder bugs. The systemic treatment is injected into the ground around the dripline of the tree or shrub and is very effective on most trees & shrubs, including fruit trees, such as apple and pear trees. It is not recommended on peach, apricot, cherry, or nectarine trees. It is guaranteed to last ONE YEAR. The best time for treatment is Early Spring (February), or fall (November). Fertilization can also be done at the same time!
There are several different types of rodents which can invade your home and yard. We take very special care not to harm your pets. All mouse baits are placed in tamper-resistant boxes. Mice, squirrels, packrats, gophers, voles, and moles are the most common in this area.
Mouse control is recommended at least 2 times per year. We can place bait in boxes and traps in the garage and the sub-area of your house to control them. This can be done at the same time as you insect control!
Yellowjackets, wasps and hornets can become a nuisance in late summer. A heavy aphid infestation on trees and shrubs will also attract the wasps into your yard. Spraying of your eaves and yard can help make your summer BBQ’s more enjoyable! We can easily spray down nests out of large trees up to 30 feet tall!
Honey bees have recently become threatened, so we must recommend you contact a local bee keeper if you have a nest or swarm! If the bee keeper cannot remove the bees, then we can be called in to spray and eliminate.
Before you purchase your home, you may want to consider a wood-destroying pest inspection. The inspector looks for any several things including:
1. Infestations of wood-destroying pests including carpenter ants, termites, and wood-destroying fungus.
2. Conditions condusive to infestations such as excessive moisture, earth-to-wood contact, faulty soil grades, and inadequate ventilation, cellulose debris.
Our inspectors are licensed, qualified and experienced. We do thorough and complete inspections!
We can install vapor barriers underneath houses to help control moisture underneath your home, correct earth-to-wood contacts, correct faulty soil grades, and remove cellulose debris. We can also do Fungus treatments.
Common insects treated for property managements, restaurants, and commercial buildings are bedbugs, cockroaches, mice, spiders, fleas, and flies. All of these can be treated by our experienced technicians.
