Are you a Bedbug victim?

Our founder, George Manning is an Entomologist, so he makes sure his staff is among the most knowledgeable in our industry.  We don’t just spray like others; diagnostics always precede any action undertaken.  When possible, our work is done with the least chemically invasive products, now coined “green products”.

Many conditions where invertebrates, insects, and other arthropods, reach the dwelling, can be avoided by using advance techniques.  For example,  Ladybugs(Asian beetles) look for winter harbourage in protected places such as within the home’s exterior walls.  By applying the appropriate pesticide to the South and West exterior walls between the last week of September to the second week of October, one can stop most of the beetles from gaining entrance to the home.

Are you a victim of a bedbug infiltration?  Did you know there are new and more resistant strains of bedbugs coming in from overseas and creating a new epidemic of bedbugs not seen in the U.S.A. in many years?

Correct diagnosis of your insect problem should be first and foremost to applying kill products.  It is often the approach that gains the lasting results.  An example would be treating any small flying fly-like pest as if it were a fruit fly problem.  Such an action would, or could bring about multiple visits when two visits would have sufficed.

So many people look for wasp irradiation in the Spring, not realizing that none are around and about until the first two or three weeks of warm Spring weather.  Even then, only the over wintered, fertile queens are just beginning to establish their future colonies.  People calling for wasp extermination, are calling because they are seeing past year(s) nests.  Last years wasps are expired; all but the over wintered queens, which are seen flying about looking for a location to start their future colonies.
