Entry Points: Pests can enter your business in many ways, including through doors, windows, vents, plumbing, cracks or holes in walls and floors, or via supplier deliveries.
Water Sources: Pests require water daily, which means water fountains, restrooms, faulty drains, condensation from air conditioning systems and other types of plumbing are attractive breeding grounds.
Food Sources: Even minor sanitation mishaps provide adequate food for pests. Cockroaches will eat almost anything – from hair to glue used in cardboard boxes.
Harborage Points: Rodents and cockroaches seek living spaces that are small and dark. Little cracks and crevices throughout your facility can provide breeding and living areas for pests.
Customer/Employee Areas: Areas like break rooms are critical exposure points. Protecting your customers and staff from unsightly and unhealthy exposure to pests is essential to your business’ success – and to your bottom line.
Throughout the Valley bed bugs are quickly spreading. Bed Bugs do not infest dirty homes as many have been led to believe. These pests will infest a million dollar home just as quickly and easily as they will a 35 year old mobile home. Most of the products available to the public are not effective at controlling these bugs. These little pests have built up a resistance to the insecticide and have developed the ability to detect and avoid insecticides altogether. Thus, Bed Bug Control is multi-faceted. The initial treatment is very in-depth and can take several hours when executed properly. The homeowner must also be heavily involved with the treatment if success is expected. In most cases follow-up treatments are required.
All bees in the Valley that are wild should be considered Africanized. It is of the utmost importance that you are equipped with the proper protective clothing as as well as equipment and chemical when exterminating bees. Depending on the placement of the hive, treatment could be as simple as a bee suit and a commercial hand-sprayer with unscented dish soap. If it is possible to minimize chemical dispersal into our surrounding environment, General Exterminating will do so. In most cases, General Exterminating will destroy the hive and remove the comb when possible.In more extreme cases, it may be necessary to open walls to remove inactive hives and then repair the structure.
We begin by performing a thorough inspection of the property. After determining the rodent pressure we will then employ the use of multiple tactics, e.g., snap traps, glue boards, live traps (ketch-all), bait stations, exclusion, etc. Following the initial placement, each bait station will then be replenished with fresh uncontaminated bait during the regular pest control service for a nominal fee. Areas with rodent pressure may require a maintenance program.
