– PEST CONTROL MEASURES –

biological Suwanee pest control
Biological Control

Biological control is the use of natural enemies— predators, parasites, pathogens, and competitors to eliminate unwanted pests. However, this is the least common of a measure like the following options.

Suwanee habitat controls

Environmental & Habitat Controls

Habitat controls are practices that reduce pests from  reproducing, dispersing, surviving and getting established . Like debris removal, moisture control, etc . This is the most common of the interventions that we invoke in our pest management programs.

Suwanee mechanical controls Mechanical & Physical Controls

Physical & Mechanical controls are measures designed to kill a pest directly, block pests out, or make the environment unsuitable for it. (Examples; Mechanical controls could be traps, glue boards, etc. Physical controls can be screens or barriers – things physically stopping the pests .)

Suwanee pesticidesChemical Control

With our approach pesticides are always used combined with other controls for more effective, long-term control. There is a certain amount of pesticides that we are allowed to spray in accordance to the label . However, we are not just going to hose down your home with the maximum allowable. We determine the amount it will take to control   the target pest and apply the chemicals responsibly.  Our plan is always to move all pesticides to the outside and do limited amounts on the inside of your home.  Anyone’s objective should be to eliminate the pests before they enter into your living space . This mindset and practice make for a healthier air quality .

 

Our Suwanee Pest Control Methodology

It is not difficult to be conscientious about pesticide application – it just takes a little ethics , desire and some more time.  Example some houses or the specific bugs may call for the use of bait instead of just spraying. When applying pesticides to an area it could require a simple spot-treatment instead of broadcast spraying. This may require more time to switch gear for a different measure , regardless, it will pay off in results. To understand more about the science behind this type of program go to this page .

We provide pest control to the following areas:

Some of the most common pests in Suwanee:

ANT CONTROL

Whether you live in the following zip codes: 30174 or the surrounding area we can help with an ant problem.  Ants are social insects that lives in colonies . Treatment plans must include killing the whole colony. Just spraying a couple ants with a consumer-grade pesticide , particularly a repellent spray will only kill a few at best and scatter the rest of the colony. If done improperly it can actually delay controlling the ant infestation. Ants may come inside your house foraging for food or for shelter. They enter through the most obscure entry points , foraging for water or food. They are in search of either sweet based food or protein/grease based foods. Once they ( find | locate | establish | discover | have } a food source , ants will leave a trail of pheromones for other ants to follow.

The most common ants are Argentine Ants, Carpenter Ants, Crazy Ants, Fire Ants, Ghost Ants, Leafcutter Ants, Odorous House Ants, Pavement Ants and Pharaoh Ants. Understanding typical behavior patterns will help you achieve the fastest results .

How to determine if you are dealing with Termites or Ants ?

It is hard to establish the identity even for newly trained people in the pest control industry. The 2 biggest differentiating factors are: 1) When comparing bodies – ants have segmented waists and termites’ bodies are about the same width, without pinched waists. 2) Ant antennas are bent whereas Termite antennae are straight.

Inspection
To get your ant problem resolved it is important that our first step is to conduct a thorough inspection. In order for us to locate the nest, we must follow their trails. Ants lay down a chemical pheromone trail along their established routes from and to a food location so other ants can easily find the food. Outside the home , we inspect the perimeter like the foundation , areas of vegetation, and mulch. Any vegetation found near porches and walls may help hide some Ant nests or their trails.

Ant Control Strategies and Tips

There are 2 main types of problems that are commonly encountered with ants.  Ants that live outdoors and forage inside.  Ants that already have a nest built inside.  Our pest control measures combine habitat modification & barriers with the proper baits or pesticides to control the problem. Our strategy always depends on the type of infestation and the type of ant that we are targeting.

1. Ants that live outdoors but come in the home. Ants that live outdoors will travel inside your home to search for food. Some species ultimately reside and make nests inside houses . Follow these measures to help reduce occurrences any type of infestation:

    •  Caulk and seal cracks and crevices to eliminate access into the home. Since Ants are extremely resourceful in sourcing entry points , you may not be able to block them all.
    •  Clean around entrances with a cleanser to remove their chemical trail left behind , then spray a non-repellent residual insecticide.

2. Ants that live (nest) inside your home . Some ants don’t just enter your home searching for food. Some ants will establish a colony inside. Indoor colonization occurs year-round, especially in warmer climates. Ant species that live in homes include Argentine Ants, Crazy Ants, Odorous House Ants, Pavement Ants, Pharaoh Ants, Thief Ants, and Carpenter Ants. All of these ants may infest food products.  We can strategically place ant bait to attract the ants to the poison.

3. Carpenter Ants
Carpenter Ants are more active in the evening when seeking food, both inside the home and outside. Carpenter ants do not eat the wood for food, but they will chew into the wood to make nests.

BEETLE CONTROL 

Many beetles are beneficial insects such as the lady beetle (a.k.a; ladybug) feeds on destructive pests. But the ones that feed on plants, animal fibers, woods or food products are considered pests because they end up doing damage to the food source they choose .

Sometimes beetles, their mere numbers , can become nuisances. In the late summer and fall, homeowners can find very many (especially Lady Bugs) clustered all around the home. The beetles are trying to seek somewhere to invade homes for shelter to escape inclement weather conditions. When beetles become a problem, your pest management professional will provide a thorough inspection to accurately identify the type of beetle and based on the inspection findings they will customize an effective treatment plan to resolve the problem .

Accurate identification of the target species is critical since there are so many varied species of beetles and the treatment method is varied   for different beetles.

OUR BEETLE CONTROL APPROACH:

We inspect your home in Suwanee — inside and outside. There are several measures that the technician does during the inspection incorporates locating areas of beetle activity, identify the source of the beetle problem, locate potential entry points that beetles are using to gain access into your home .

Our   goal is to devise and implement a custom solution. Our licensed Pest Control Tech will customize the treatment specific to your unique situation. We can select from a variety of tools and techniques to help keep any beetles out of your home: beetle exclusion, habitat modifications, Insect Growth Regulators, residual insecticides.

Beetle Control Measures

We adhere to an “Integrated Pest Management (IPM)” principle & philosophy which simply means we use a common-sense practices to pesticide applications. We take advantage of existing mechanical & environmental controls: Examples are such as habitat modifications, removing attractants, using barriers, traps, etc. Combine those with the conscientious application of pesticides to eliminate the problem pest . The goal is to remove the nuisance pest while protecting human health, non-target beneficial species, and the environment.

Some of the types of Beetles: American Spider Beetles , Asian Long-horned Beetles , Carpet Beetles , Click Beetles , Common Furniture Beetles , Elm Leaf Beetles , False Powderpost Beetles , Foreign Grain Beetles , Ground Beetles , Pantry Beetles , Pine Bark Beetles , Saw-tooth Grain Beetles , Stink Beetles .

CARPENTER BEES    

Suwanee Carpenter bees usually live for approx. one year . Each new generation starts in the late summer, emerging from nest in August and September to grow and feed , pollinating as much as possible before hibernating for the winter .  the residual pesticides it is the most effective means of controlling the carpenter bee invasion. Call us , let’s discuss your specific situation and we will come up with a plan that is best suited for your situation. Let us bring peace to this situation. 

CENTIPEDES & MILLIPEDE CONTROL   

The house centipede is the only species capable of reproducing indoors and is often seen in and around homes where dampness occurs. The house centipede is active at night, moving around in search of food .  Even though Centipedes are beneficial since they destroy other insects (like Mother Nature’s pest control) most people have an aversion to their presence inside their homes.

Did you know … Millipedes feed primarily on decaying vegetation and leaf litter while centipedes feed on other insects ?

Centipede & Millipede Pest Control

Centipedes commonly enter homes in the winter or fall months or during times of colder temperatures. They are typically found in basements and garages, both of which exhibit desirable environments for this creature. An increased population within the home may be attributed to one of two things: a readily available insect food source or, more commonly, increasingly humid conditions.

To eliminate centipede populations , the first step is to reduce humidity. Running dehumidifiers will pull the water out of the air, eliminating dampness and mold within the home. This will also help alleviate structural damage which may encourage other pests.

You may more commonly find centipedes in greenhouses and outside structures. Insecticides may be used where significant numbers are found and usually provide sufficient pest control. They are available in both organic & chemical solutions. We follow an Integrated Pest Management methodology when applying pesticides in or around your home. We use pesticides responsibly and use only what is necessary to eliminate the target species .

    • Find the location: Look behind plant posts or other gardening equipment regularly to ensure there are no signs of life.
    • Sanitize the area and remove the pests: These should be removed and the area thoroughly cleaned.
    • Prevent further infestations: Consider using a pesticide and monitoring the area regularly for signs of recurrence.
    • Some of these measures are to make sure doors and windows fit tightly and caulk cracks and crevices that permit their entry to the inside. Additional measures could be removing or eliminating trash piles, rocks, stacks of wood, leaf piles, compost piles around the outside of the home.

CRICKET EXTERMINATION

There three most common types of crickets that invade our homes in Georgia are the: Camel, House & Field , Crickets. Crickets can be extremely ( aggravating | annoying | bothersome | nerve-racking | unsettling }, but unless there are large numbers, they do ( very little | little | hardly any } damage. They love to chew on anything , especially clothing.

House Crickets live outside but may come indoors in considerable numbers. House crickets are nocturnal, they stay hidden during the day . They have a distinctive chirping sound. They can drive you crazy trying to find them.  As soon as you hone in on their location they stop chirping.

Field crickets are another common nuisance. This species is slightly longer & darker than the House Cricket.  Field crickets prefer to live outside in flower beds, overgrown grass and lawns . However, they do come inside our homes often. Since Field crickets are attracted to lights at night, sometimes turning off these lights helps.

Camel crickets (humpback crickets) are not true crickets since they do not have wings. Camel Crickets are most often are found in basements, crawlspaces & closets , but also like any ( damp & cool | damp and cool | cool & damp | cool and damp } areas like under   logs or stones most outdoor areas, and while some people enjoy their songs of the evening, these tunes can drive others to complete distraction. These choirs of crickets can be avoided by making the outdoor yard or landscaping less desirable for the insects. They are naturally attracted to bright lights, so reducing any outdoor lighting will make the area less desirable to these serenading creatures. As an alternative, low-level “bug lights” can be purchased at home and garden stores. Keeping any grasses around residences trimmed and tended will also reduce the environmental appeal.

Crickets in the home are easily eliminated . We can seal any of the entryways into the home that allows crickets to invade.

HOUSE FLY CONTROL

Fly control is always a popular request since a house fly can transfer more than 100 different diseases , including typhoid, salmonella, and tuberculosis . House flies contaminate food surfaces by spreading disease organisms picked up on their legs and mouth-parts when feeding on feces, trash, and other decaying substances .

However , an occasional house fly is not necessarily a problem requiring our intervention.  Every human, every home , will have to deal with an occasional flies . When we get called out for flies, it is a large population that cannot be eliminated .

Like many other pests , the house fly experiences a four-phase life cycle. If the conditions are favorable , the developmental time of a house fly from egg to adult could take place in as little as ( 6 | six } days.  She will reproduce about 5-6 times, laying batches of about 100 eggs each time . Female house flies usually only mate once but is capable of producing between 350-900 eggs in their lifespan . Adult house flies typically live between two weeks to a month .

House flies feed on liquids since they do not have any teeth . However, they use their sponging mouth-parts to liquefy many solids through ( regurgitation and spitting | spitting or regurgitation }. Their tongues are shaped like straws to suck up the food. House flies feed on a wide variety of foods such as garbage, human food & feces, animal carcasses . They are drawn to feces because of its strong odor.

HOUSE FLY PEST  EXTERMINATION

With our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices, we combine multiple control measures to eliminate the problem. Each situation is unique ; however, it may call for habitat modification, mechanical controls and pesticide .  Since our company in the wildlife industry , instinctively we would suspect an animal has died in a crawlspace, attic or wall if there is a large presence of flies . Regardless, we will discuss options with you and customize a plan that meets your expectations .

LADYBUG CONTROL

People who’ve never had a ladybug infestation view ( them | ladybugs } in a favorable way. Who doesn’t get a warm feeling after watching the movie “A Bugs Life”. Ladybugs sometimes referred to as lady beetles, are actually considered a beneficial insect. They feed heartily on many plant-eating insects such as aphids.

Fun Fact! In our area, there are the friendly & beneficial ladybugs and then there are an invasive species called the Asian Ladybug beetle. The Asian Ladybugs tend to gather together in large numbers inside our homes and this is typically when homeowners take action . Oftentimes, it can be difficult to resolve without professional help. Get this the invasive species that is now taking over our native species was introduced by the USDA.

LADYBUG INFESTATIONS in Suwanee

Ladybugs in the house. Multiple things can attract ladybugs to your house . If your landscaping includes flowers , they will likely attract aphids, the primary food source of ladybugs. Certain species of ladybugs also eat on pollen. The pollen  is an energy source to help them through their winter hibernation . Ladybugs must find a warm, comfortable place to hibernate during the winter . If they decide your home is suitable , they can easily find their way inside through cracks around anything like windows, doors, utility entry points .

LADYBUG CONTROL MEASURES

If you’ve seen a few and they are not really bothering you, simply leave them be . They evacuate as soon as the warmer weather arrives . However, you can simply vacuum them up and discard the bag. If you have a ladybug infestation inside your home, other measures will need to be taken. There are a several things we can implement . First and foremost , we can winterize your home. We can go around the outside perimeter of your home and make some habitat modification suggestions . These are things that could be attracting ladybugs to your yard and seeking refuge within your home . We can also responsibly spray residual pesticides on the outside of your home to prevent them from establishing a cluster .

There are some all-natural alternatives that you can try at home. Possibly consider spraying around the cracks and crevices with a natural repellent such as citronella, bay leaves, cloves or citrus oil . Also, Mums are known to repel ladybugs. The more mums you have by doors and windows the fewer ladybugs you will have to deal with.

If you want to leave it to professionals, simply call us and we will take measures to get rid of them and prevent them from coming back .

MOSQUITO CONTROL

Are pesky mosquitoes ruining your outdoor family time ? Are you concerned about your family’s potential health risks ? We provide professional mosquito control services that will help you feel safe in your own yard . Our friendly & knowledgeable staff can discuss the steps of our Mosquito Control services during the entire mosquito season.

Not all Mosquito Control Products are created equal.

Our practice is taken right out of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) & the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) collaborative playbook on how to best control mosquitoes . The protocol that encourages affecting the development of every life stage of a mosquito to successfully impact is referred to as integrated pest management (IPM).
________________________________________
Our Mosquito Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program

IPM is a science-based, common-sense approach for controlling pests . Our Mosquito Control service uses a combination of measures that focus on pest prevention. It is our job to identify the conditions that lead to infestations. The most effective means of controlling adult mosquitoes is through the use of pesticides. A successful integrated mosquito control strategy includes several tactics to control mosquitoes. Four necessary steps include:

1. Locate all mosquito habitats
2. Advise on the use of structural barriers
3. Control Mosquitoes at the Larval Stage
4. Eliminate Adult Mosquitoes

Mosquito Habitats

There are simple measures homeowners can have done to impede   the cycle with mosquitoes in their breeding grounds. By removing standing water sources you can devastate the mosquito population, due to the fact that 2 of 3 life stages of a mosquito requires water.

• Get rid of standing water in old tires, buckets, plastic covers, toys, rain gutters or any other container where mosquitoes can use for breeding .
• Weekly water changes in potted plant trays, rain barrels, birdbaths, fountains, and wading pools . 
• Drain temporary pools of water,  store them upside down or fill them with dirt.
• Keep pool water treated and circulating.

Control Mosquito Larva

By using a larvicide in their breeding habitat , will   yield the greatest impact on their population .  Egg and larva interventions are the least costly & most effective way to control mosquitoes .  Our company will devise a program that uses all of the measures combined to provide the best results.

Control Adult Mosquitoes
Misting pesticides for mosquito control is one of the most common measures to control an outbreak of mosquito-borne disease. Mosquito adulticides (pesticide labelled for the adult stage) are applied as ultra-low volume (ULV) sprays which dispense extremely small droplets. These smaller size droplets stay suspended longer making the pesticide more effective. The more effective the pesticide, the less we have to apply. We want the healthiest & safest environment for humans, non-targeted species and pets.

Everything about your specific situation, your specific yard needs to be a consideration to determine the best way to tackle the mosquito problem. Some considerations might include the type of mosquito, resistance, targeted stage of life, upcoming weather, etc. This is our approach!

MOTH CONTROL

An established moth infestation usually requires professional treatment to completely end the problem. Although many customers attempt the “do it yourself” measures for moth control – the results are often disappointing .

The single most common moth that causes a problem are Pantry Moths.  Have you ever noticed strange stringy particles in an old bag of flour, webbing along the corners or edges of cereals , or rice that appears to have cobwebs? If the answer is yes, then you’ve seen pantry moths. The term ‘pantry moth’ usually refers to the Indianmeal moth.

While there are numerous different species of moths, the Indianmeal moth is the most frequent household pantry pest in the US . It is different from other   moths because it is attracted to packaged food , unlike the clothes moth which is attracted to clothing.

Moths can enter your home through open ( doors & windows | windows & doors | windows and doors | doors and windows }. They may also enter through cracks & crevices around utility chases, dryer vents or around cables that pass-through walls . It is shocking when you open a sealed box of food only to find evidence of pantry moths on the inside . You may not even notice the moths until they have already passed through the different phases of a pantry moth life cycle and you see an adult moth flying within your home .

MOTH CONTROL MEASURES
Prior to implementing a moth control solution, your Licensed Pest Control Tech will properly identify the moth species affecting your stored foods .  Different moth pest species require different treatment methods to effectively control them.

All factors need to be considered when trying to devise a game plan to eliminate the moths. These factors can include; species, stored products, type of structure, etc.

Control measures for stored products moths (Indian Meal Moths, Mediterranean flour moth, etc.) include going through all of the pantry items and throwing away all open grain-type products, better storage containers, freezing existing packages to kill eggs, and spraying the closet to eliminate the problem. However, for the fabric moth pests; vacuuming the entire closet including the walls, throwing away any paper items that could be harboring eggs, proper storage, and application of pesticides. Monitoring using various traps including pheromone traps where applicable is done thereafter to ensure moth problems do not continue.

All our State certified technicians are highly-skilled and are required to participate in regular continuing education programs to keep them up-to-date with industry standards.

ROACH CONTROL

Roaches are one of the most feared pests controlled with our household pest control services. The 1st step is proper identification of any pest then the Certified Pest Control Technician calculates a plan to resolve & prevent future infestations. 2nd step after treatment is the habitat modifications.

The Most Common Roaches in North Georgia Pest Control

GERMAN COCKROACHES

German Roaches are brown to dark brown in color. They have two distinct parallel bands running the length of their pronotum (behind the head to the base of the wings) . Full grown adults are about a ½-inch in length.  They are closely related to the Asian cockroach, and to the average person , the two appear just about identical and are often misidentified . A quick method to differentiate, the Asian cockroach is drawn to light and can fly, while the German cockroach cannot.

German roaches are the most prolific of all cockroaches. They complete their life-cycle in approximately 100 days , and they breed constantly . Under the proper conditions, a female can create ( directly & indirectly through offspring ) over 1 million roaches in her lifespan . German roaches often pollute food & food products with their feces and defensive secretions. They also physically transport & often harbor pathogenic organisms, and in some cases may cause severe allergic reactions and illnesses .

The German cockroach is extremely successful at establishing a stronghold in buildings and is resilient & hardy against pest control measures . This is because of the massive amount of nymphs produced from each egg case, the short period between birth and sexual maturity, and their ability to stow away due to their tiny size. That is also the main cause that they can effectually be eliminated with baits in crevices & cracks .

Our company believes in using just enough pest control products to get the job done without going overboard. We use “Low Risk” products such as baits, and IGR’s (Insect Growth Regulators). These products only affect the roaches themselves and have zero effect on mammals, birds, fish, and other non-target organisms.

ASIAN COCKROACH

Since these are often confused for the German Cockroaches , in most cases, establishing their identity by observed location & behavior . Specifically, Asian roaches are capable of flight and usually live outdoors . German roaches cannot fly and are the home invaders . Furthermore Asian cockroaches live primarily outdoors , while German cockroaches tend to infest our homes . Outside Asian cockroaches are typically located in moist & shady areas. Asian cockroaches are active at dusk and fly long toward porch lights . You may see an Asian cockroach drawn to your computer monitor or perched near lamps and other sources of illumination . If you find an Asian cockroach inside your home , the use of screens may be successful in preventing further infestation.

However, our pest control expert can discuss our strategy , as cockroach populations multiply fast and are difficult to control without our help .

AMERICAN COCKROACHES

Both female & male American cockroaches can take flight .  Their wings develop as become adults. American cockroaches normally live outside . They prefer damp, warm areas like landscaped beds , and under mulch. All over the United States , people known them as “palmetto bugs” because they live in trees. Florida almost opted to make the Palmetto Bug their State Bird but the Mosquito won that election. American cockroaches are extremely common in sewer systems in all   American cities . American cockroaches enter houses to find food and water .  Roaches can easily pass under doors if the weather stripping is damaged . Garages and basements are also common entryways . When American cockroaches enter , they often go to kitchens, laundry rooms, basements and bathrooms .

SMOKYBROWN (SMOKY BROWN) ROACH

These roaches become a concern when attracted by house lights , they enter homes through cracked in doors, windows and other gaps going into the home. They contaminate anything they touch , spreading bacteria that can result in illness. Proteins in the Smokybrown Cockroach’s skin and saliva may also trigger allergic reactions and asthma . It is not common that people see huge , flying cockroaches so it can be upsetting to most people.

ORIENTAL COCKROACHES

Oriental cockroaches favor dark, damp, and cool areas such as those under sinks and washing machines , and in damp basements. This species, which is more sluggish and less wary than the other species , concerning because it runs through in sewer pipes and can live on filth . Adult Oriental cockroaches are about one inch long . Both female and male adults are very darl, almost black ; their bodies usually have a shiny finish .

OUR COCKROACH APPROACH:

We inspect your entire home — inside and outside . There are several things the our Tech   will do during the inspection:
• Identify areas of cockroach activity.
• Locate the causes of the cockroach problem .
• Identify any suspect entry points that cockroaches could use to get into your home.
• Implement a customized solution since “cookie-cutter” treatments aren’t always effective, the technician will design the treatment specific to your unique situation. We can select from a variety of { techniques and tools } tools and techniques to help keep any pests out of your home:

o Exclusion: Non-chemical methods such as caulking or door sweeps help keep cockroaches from entering your home. We will provide you with a quote to seal up your home from pests .
o Habitat Modification: If roaches are hanging out around and in your home , we provide you with a checklist of issues that you need to change to cut back on the issues in your house or yard that are attracting pests .

• LOW-RISK Gel or granular bait: These are applied in areas where cockroaches will eat them, but children or pets cannot reach them.
• Insect growth regulator: Applied into cockroach hiding places, these interfere with the cockroaches’ normal development.
• Residual insecticides: Applied into cracks and crevices, this help to keep cockroaches from hiding in the treated areas. The technician may also apply liquid insecticide outdoors to help keep all cockroaches from coming inside.

Monitoring Roaches – each time the technician returns to your home, they will inspect. There are several things he will do during the inspection:
• See how the last treatment worked .
• Check for new cockroach activity.
• check to see if any habitat modifications have been implemented .  Identify any needed changes to the landscape or home that could make your home vulnerable to cockroach infestation .

SCORPION CONTROL

A scorpion is known , unfortunately, for its sting. In some areas of the World , there are dangerous scorpions that do result in human fatalities from their stings. These creatures frequently get a lot of media attention and thus most people believe that all or most scorpions are deadly creatures. Not true! Most species which enter houses are not very poisonous, their stings being comparable to those of bees or wasps. The little uniformly colored Southern devil is what we see all over North Georgia . The Striped Bark Scorpion is found in the coastal plains and other areas of Southern Georgia.

CONTROLLING SCORPIONS

Finding a scorpion in sink or bathtub is common because once they fall in they have difficulty in getting out. Our native scorpions are small up to 1 inch in length.
To successfully control indoor scorpions, it’s essential to manage the scorpions outside the home. As a part of our inspection, we point out the habitat modifications that need your attention, reducing the number of outdoor hiding places for scorpions is important. This might include the removal of debris such as loose rocks, wood, trash and other unnecessary things from the backyard and around the home. It’s also beneficial to keep the grass mowed short and all shrubbery nicely pruned. In addition to those measures, we inspect the outside of your home to determine what needs to be sealed on the outside of your home to help prevent pests from entering. All of our pest control solutions involve the integrated pest management approach where we combine the ethical application of pesticide with a common sense stance on prevention and habitat controls.

SILVERFISH CONTROL

Our approach with Silverfish Control is identical to every pest that we handle .
• We perform a thorough inspection.
• Determine what is the target species
• Devise a plan .

With all the Pest Management Division, We adhere to an “Integrated Pest Management (IPM)” principle & philosophy which simply means we use a common-sense approach.

SILVERFISH CONTROL MEASURES

To prevent a silverfish infestation, eliminate sources of excessive dampness in places that have potentially ill-fitted pipes or faulty plumbing, bathrooms and other areas of high moisture or condensation . Silverfish love the humidity. Silverfish cannot survive inside buildings in low relative humidity, so take measures to reduce it by using a dehumidifier. Maintain a relative humidity below 50% year-round.

Reduce food sources & clutter . Vacuum regularlythe crevices & cracks . Remove easily accessible food sources such as pet foods, cereals and flour by storing pantry food in   tight containers.

It is common to find Silverfish in the attics, storage areas & closets . They eat the glue on the boxes and book bindings. They may feed on surface molds found on cardboard boxes found in damp basements or attics. Silverfish naturally live outside under stones, rocks, and leaf debris . Silverfish prefer warm temperatures. Remove any possible harborage areas such as leaf, grass, and wood piles near your home . Keep gutters clean .

We can also take steps to provide a quote for standard exclusion techniques such as caulking cracks and crevices. But there are also steps the homeowner can take to prevent entry… such as making sure screens are tight fitting and the use of weather stripping around windows and doors.

SPIDER CONTROL

With our Suwanee Pest Control Division, We adhere to an “Integrated Pest Management (IPM)” principle & philosophy which simply means we use a common-sense approach to pest control. We take advantage of existing mechanical & environmental controls (habitat modifications, removing attractants, using barriers, traps, etc.) combined with the responsible application of pesticides to eliminate the target pest. Our goal is to remove the nuisance pest while taking into consideration human health, non-target beneficial species and the environment.

Spiders can be super beneficial in your yard. Most people just do not want the eaves of their home looking like a haunted house. Nor do they want spiders crawling all over the inside of their home. Spiders are considered a beneficial pest because of their prey on other insects Because spiders have eight legs, they are easy to separate from insects, which have only six legs. Another distinction between spiders and other pests is that spiders do not have wings or antennae. Spiders are arachnids.

Spider Habitat

They can be found in upper corners of rooms and attics , crannies & nooks as well as sub-floor air-vents. Spiders prefer to hide in dark places and in cracks as a retreat in order to construct material for their webs. Keep this in mind … every “cobweb” was constructed by a spider.

Rather than pasting a picture of every spider we have in our area, we decided to let you google the images. Please check out a website of spiders seen in Georgia: Spider ID

Brown Recluse Spider
• Size: Less than the size of a quarter.
• Color: This poisonous spider varies in color from a beige color to a brownish – dark brown.
• IDENTIFICATION: You can identify a Brown Recluse spider by the violin-shaped pattern on its neck. It looks like many other species of non-threatening spiders, so the indicative sign of a Brown Recluse spider is that only has 6 eyes. Their eyes are set apart in three pairs along the face.
________________________________________

Black Widow Spider
• Size: Around 1 ½ inches
• Color: Glossy jet-black.
• IDENTIFICATION: Black Widow spiders have a distinct bright-red, hourglass shape on the underside of its abdomen. Black widows create the largest webs of all the web-spinning spiders. However, we have seen some impressive webs from Golden Orbs.
