SEASONAL TREATMENTS

SUMMER

With the heat of the summer comes a large scale of activity from earwigs, wasps, ants, and spiders. During the summer months we focus on eliminating these pests and creating thorough barriers.

FALL

Fall is arguably one of the most important times to protect the home from pests. With the dropping temperatures, pests look for a warm safe haven for the winter months. In the fall we focus on strengthening the barrier around the home as well as treating the inside for invaders looking for a warm place to stay.

WINTER

The winter is a crucial time to service the customer’s home. It is during the winter that most pests are trying to get into the home to escape the cold and harsh weather conditions outside. With our winter treatment we target these pests to ensure that they will not invade the comforts of your home. We use a specialized powered duster on the outside of the home to strengthen the barrier that we created during the warmer months.

SPRING

Spring is a wonderful time that brings new growth and life. Sadly that is true for insects and rodents. Due to the melting snow, and warmer conditions spring is a very active time for pests around the home. Spiders in particular have large hatchings in the spring and must be treated properly. Spring is an essential time in which we are able to create barriers around and in the home so that when summer comes they are pest free.
