Cockroaches are one of the most commonly noted household pest insects. They feed on human and pet food, can leave an offensive odor. They can also passively transport microbes on the surfaces of their bodies linked to triggering asthma and allergic reactions.


Roches are resilient enough to survive occasional freezing temperatures, and have been known to live up to three months without food and a month without water. This makes them difficult to eradicate once they have infested an area. To help prevent a roach infestation:

  • Keep water and food stored in sealed containers
  • Use garbage cans with tight lids
  • Keep kitchen areas clean and vacuum regularly
  • Repair any water leaks such as dripping faucets
  • Seal off any entry points, such as holes around baseboards, between kitchen cabinets, pipes, doors, and windows

While over the counter roach sprays may kill the ones you see, there are many, many more hiding and multiplying behind your walls. You can trust our professional treatment, special equipment, knowledge and experience to help control cockroaches in your home or place of business.

Sanitary situations like this in your home, can lead to roach problems like these..




Rodents are a diverse, highly adaptable group that includes rats, mice, voles, squirrels and more. They contaminate food, transmit diseases to people, and their constant need to chew can cause extensive damage to buildings.

The first course of action in rodent prevention is preventing them from entering your home or business by sealing off any holes or cracks 1/4 inch or larger. Since mice can squeeze through openings as small as a dime, and rats can fit through holes the size of a quarter, rodent proofing is an essential part of proper rodent control.

Contact us immediately if you notice signs of a rodent infestation. We will inspect your home or place of business, confirm the type of rodent present, and evaluate the severity of the infestation, checking for any established nests. We can then recommend the most effective rodent control treatment for your situation.


Ants are among the most prevalent household pests. They can nest about anywhere. Depending on the type of ant, they may raid stored food, cause structural damage, or inflict painful stings.

  • Nuisance ants, such as the Argentine ant (or sugar ant), will invade any indoor space they find to be a good source of food and water. Entering through the tiniest cracks, they leave an invisible chemical trail for others to follow.
  • The large, unsightly mounds of fire ant colonies are an all too familiar sight in lawns across the South. However, fire ants will also occasionally invade homes through foundation vents and HVAC systems, and nest under bathtubs and around water heaters, damaging electrical systems. Their painful stings and swarming nature make them especially dangerous.
  • Carpenter ants do not eat wood, but instead, create galleries in wood to lay their eggs. While the damage they cause is not as extensive as that of termites, it can compromise structural integrity.

We take into account the fact that different types of ant infestation require different treatments, and offer effective treatments that penetrate the colony and destroy nests to prevent ants from returning. Chemical methods include the use of insecticidal bait which is gathered by ants as food and brought back to the nest where the poison is inadvertently spread to other colony members.
