Residential pest control targets rodent and insect infestations in the following properties:
All residential properties are at risk of pest infiltration. Pests infiltrate residential establishments via access points found. Pest access points are commonly found in damaged window and door frames. Crawlspace and basement vents, garage doors, siding, mortar, and entrance door thresholds.
What Is Residential Pest Control?
Residential pest control consists of a variety of treatments, including eco-friendly and conventional. Our eco-friendly pest control does not utilize synthetic chemicals. Instead, it utilizes chemicals from natural and organic sources, such as diatomaceous earth and neem oil.
We also offer green residential pest management treatments that do not utilize chemicals, organic, natural, or conventional. These treatments include cryonite, thermal heat, and steam, all of which rely on temperature control to eradicate pests.
Residential Pest Inspection
The first step of every residential pest control treatment is an inspection. A home inspection plays a major role in the pest management process. It gives our technicians the evidence needed to determine if a specific property has been infiltrated by pests. The evidence also helps our technicians validate a pest infestation in a residential setting.
During the inspection, the technician assesses every square inch of the property. The technician is searching for signs of pests:
- Live insects or rodents
- Fecal droppings
- Damaged food containers
- Gnaw marks on structural components
- Nest constructed from twigs, household waste, and other items
- Foul odors
- Scratching, gnawing, and scurrying sounds
As a property owner, it is important to be familiar with these signs as well. Knowing what to always be on the lookout for will play in your favor if your home is infiltrated by pests.
Is Residential Pest Control Products Safe?
Yes, when implemented per EPA guidelines, pest control products can safely be utilized to eradicate pests. During the pest control process, our technicians rely on their education, continuous training, experience, and skills to ensure the highest level of safety during each pest control treatment.
Our residential pest control products, including pesticides, thermal heat, cryonite, and steam, are 100 percent environmentally friendly. We utilize these treatments alone or with traps to maximize the results in the shortest duration.
How Is Residential Pest Control Treatment Implemented?
It depends on the property size and location, infiltration or infestation, and type of pest species. We believe it is crucial to identify the culprit upfront. Each pest species is unique, requiring a unique extermination method. For example, bed bugs require a complex pest control strategy, implemented in the host’s bedroom. The cockroach, on the other hand, requires a pest control strategy that targets the kitchen, dining room, and pantry.
The identification of the insect species will ensure the best results every time.
How We Protect Our Clients From Chemical Exposure?
Our conventional pest management strategies utilize synthetic chemicals like acephate, bromadiolone, bifenthrin, atrazine, chlorpyrifos, and cyfluthrin. While these chemicals derive from synthetic sources, it is possible to minimize or eliminate their environmental risks.
When it is determined property is infested with pests, our technicians immediately consult with the client. The technician will provide the occupants of the home with a short pest control educational course. It is important, each member of the home knows their treatment options. The technician will offer suggestions, but the final decision is the property owner.
The client and other occupants are advised to evacuate the home before each conventional treatment. The property must be completed vacant at the time of each pesticide treatment.
Each Residential Pest Control Treatment Backed By Scientific Evidence
We strive to stay up to date on the latest pest control technologies and techniques. Scientists are continuously researching new technologies to determine their effectiveness in fighting pest infestation. Technological advances have been shown to make a major dent in the number of new pest infestation cases in the United States.
Our customized extermination technicians are backed by scientific evidence. If this were not the case, there would be no guarantee our pest control treatments would deliver full eradication.

Our Residential Pest Prevention Solutions
We not only know how to fully eradicate pests but also to prevent them from accessing your property. With the client’s help, there is no end to the prevention possibilities in all residential settings.
To prevent pests from entering your residential establishment, all access points must be sealed. We suggest a high-quality, waterproof caulk or silicone to seal small openings. Medium-sized openings should be sealed with a metal screen, followed by a sealant.
All screened windows and doors with permanent damage must be replaced. Small insects are known to infiltrate homes through damaged screens, while the windows and doors are only ajar.
