– PEST MANAGEMENT MEASURES –

biological Suwanee pest control
Biological Control

Biological control is the use of natural enemies— pathogens, predators, parasites and competitors to eliminate specific 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 moisture control, debris removal, etc . This is the most popular of the interventions that we implement in our pest prevention programs.

Suwanee mechanical controls Physical & Mechanical Controls

Mechanical & Physical controls are steps which can 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 bug .)

Suwanee pesticidesChemical Control

With our approach pesticides are always used in combination 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 labeling . However, we are not just going to hose down your home with the maximum allowable. We calculate the amount it will take to control   the target pest and apply the pesticides responsibly.  Our goal is to move all pesticide applications to the outside and spray only what is necessary in the living quarters of your home.  Anyone’s objective should be to eliminate the pests before they come into your living space . This mindset and practice make for a healthier home .

 

Our Suwanee Pest Control Methodology

It is not difficult to be conscientious about pesticide application – it just takes a sense of moral obligation , desire and a little more time.  Meaning some homes or the target pest may call for the use of bait stations 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 technique , regardless, it will pay off in results. To understand more about the science behind this type of program check out 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 should include killing the whole colony. Just spraying a couple ants with a typical pesticide , particularly a repellent spray will only kill a few ants and scatter the rest of the colony. If done improperly it would delay controlling the ant infestation. Ants may come inside your house looking for for food or for shelter. They enter through the tiniest 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 others 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 their behavior patterns will help you achieve quicker control .

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

It is hard to establish the identity even for trained people in the pest control industry. The two biggest determining 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 rectified 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 source so other ants can easily find the food. Outside the house, we inspect the perimeter like the foundation walls, 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 experienced with ants.  Ants that live outside and forage indoors .  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 outside but come inside the home. Ants that live outside will come inside your home looking for food. Some species ultimately reside and nest inside houses . Follow these measures to help control any type of infestation:

    •  Caulk and seal cracks and crevices to eliminate passages into the home. Since Ants are extremely industrious in finding access , you may not be able to block them all.
    •  Clean around entrances with a cleanser to remove their pheromones , then spray a non-repellent residual insecticide.

2. Ants that live (nest) inside your home . Some ants don’t just enter your home seeking 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 hours when seeking food, both inside the house 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 undesirable pests. But the ones that feed on plants, animal fibers, woods or food products are considered pests because they end up doing harm to the food source they target .

Sometimes beetles, their mere numbers , can become nuisances. In the late summer and fall, homeowners can find tons of (especially Lady Bugs) clustered inside and outside the home. The beetles are trying to find 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 specific beetle and based on the inspection findings they will customize an effective treatment strategy to resolve the problem .

Proper identification of the pest 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 steps that the technician will do during the inspection which include 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   plan is to devise and implement a customized solution. Our skilled 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 measures 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 responsible application of pesticides to eliminate the nuisance 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 , Blister Beetles , Cigarette Beetles , Dried Fruit Beetles , Elm Leaf Beetles , Emerald Ash Borer , Flour Beetles , Ground Beetles , Pantry Beetles , Plaster Beetles , Saw-tooth Grain Beetles , Stink Beetles .

CARPENTER BEES    

Suwanee Carpenter bees usually live for around a year . Each new generation is hatched in the late summer, emerging from nests in August and September to feed & grow , pollinating as much as possible before hibernating for the winter .  Only the strong survive to residual pesticide application it is the most effective means of controlling the carpenter bee invasion. Reach out to 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 PROBLEMS   

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 more active at nighttime , moving about in search of cockroaches and other insects .  Even though Centipedes are beneficial since they control other insects (like Mother Nature’s pest control) most people have an aversion to them inside their homes.

Fun Fact … Millipedes feed on leaf matter and decaying vegetation while centipedes feed on other Bugs ?

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 centipedes , 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 pest .

    • 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 PROBLEMS

There three most common types of crickets that invade our homes in Georgia are the: Field, House & Camel , 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 inside in considerable numbers. House crickets are nocturnal, they stay hidden during the daytime . They have a distinctive chirping sound. They can drive you insane trying to find them.  As soon as they feel a threat close-by 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 lawns, flower beds & overgrown grasses . However, they do come inside our homes often. Since Field crickets are attracted to light 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 ELIMINATION

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

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

Like many other bugs , 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 may require as little as ( 6 | six } days.  She will reproduce about 5-6 times, laying batches of approx. 100 eggs during each round . Female house flies usually only mate one time but is capable of producing nearly 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 solid foods 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 animal carcasses, human food, feces and garbage . They are drawn to human waste 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 pesticide application, habitat modification, and mechanical controls .  Since our company in the wildlife industry , instinctively we would suspect an animal has died in a attic, wall or crawl space if there is a large fly population . Regardless, we will discuss options with you and customize a plan that meets your goals and expectations .

LADYBUG INFESTATIONS

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.

Be aware 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 overwhelming and killing off 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 flowering bushes , they will likely attract aphids, a popular food source of ladybugs. Certain species of ladybugs also eat on pollen. The pollen  is an energy source to help them over-winter . Ladybugs must find a warm, comfortable place to hide out during the colder months of the year . If they decide your home is a great place for them , they can easily find their way inside through openings around windows, cracks, doors, plumbing, utility lines, etc .

LADYBUG CONTROL MEASURES

If you’ve seen a few and they are not really bothering you, simply leave them alone . They leave as soon as the warmer weather arrives . However, you can easily 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 couple things we can implement . Initially , we can winterize your home. We can go around the perimeter of your home and make some habitat modification suggestions . These are things that could be attracting ladybugs to your yard and seeking refuge inside your home . We can also responsibly spray residual pesticides along the outside perimeter 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 bay leaves, citronella oil, clove 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 mosquitoes ruining your outdoor activities ? Are you concerned about your family’s health ? We provide professional mosquito services that will help you take back your yard . Our friendly & knowledgeable staff can discuss the measures of our Mosquito Control services during the entire mosquito season.

Not all Mosquito Control Products are created equal.

Our method 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 targeting of every life stage of a mosquito to successfully eliminate is referred to as integrated pest management (IPM).
________________________________________
Our Mosquito Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program

IPM is a science-based, common-sense approach for pest management . 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 crucial steps include:

1. Remove mosquito habitats
2. Recommend use of structural barriers
3. Restrict the growth of Mosquitoes at the Larval Stage
4. Control Adult Mosquitoes

Mosquito Habitats

There are simple measures homeowners can take to disrupt  the cycle with mosquitoes in their breeding grounds. By preventing standing water to collect you can devastate the mosquito population, due to the fact that two out of the three life stages of a mosquito requires water.

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

Control Mosquito Larva

By using a larvicide in their breeding habitat , will will decimate their population .  Egg and larva interventions are the least costly & most effective way to keep the mosquito population in control .  We can 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 dramatic means 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 resolve the problem. Although many homeowners attempt the “do it yourself” measures for moth control – the results are often not what they anticipated .

The #1 most popular moth that causes a problem are Pantry Moths.  Have you ever noticed clumps in an old bag of flour, webbing along the corners or edges of boxed foods , or grains 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 many different species of moths, the Indianmeal moth is the most often seen household pantry pest in the United States . It is different from other species   moths because it is attracted to stored food , unlike the clothes moth which is attracted to clothing.

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

The Pantry Moth Life Cycle
There are 4 stages in the life cycle of a pantry moth:
1. Egg: Moth eggs are extremely tiny and a whitish-grey in color. An adult can lay approximately 400 eggs each , and they can hatch in only one week .
2. Larva: This is the stage that makes it obvious that there is a problem .  Moth larvae are tiny worm-like eating machines. The casings they leave behind will contaminate food, rendering it unusable . The larval stage typically lasts 2-3 months depending on conditions.
3. Pupa: Moths in the pupal stage are in cocoons, usually hidden in cracks, corners, or crevices. Often identified by the cocoons buried underneath food, causing the matted webs. Moths usually take 15-20 days to develop from pupae into adults.
4. Adult: The adults appear fully winged; they are attracted to light and fly around looking to reproduce.  Shockingly they do not have working mouth parts so they cannot eat. This means their sole purpose is to reproduce.

All factors need to be considered when trying to devise a strategy to control 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 loathed pests targeted with our household pest control services. The 1st step is proper identification of any pest then the Certified Pest Control Technician creates 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 on average a ½-inch in length.  It is very closely related to the Asian cockroach, and to the casual observer , they both appear nearly identical and are often confused for each other . A quick way to differentiate, the Asian cockroach is drawn to light and can fly, while the German cockroach cannot.

German roaches are the most prevalent of all cockroaches. They complete their life-cycle in approximately 3 months , and they breed constantly . Under the right conditions, a female can create ( directly & indirectly through offspring ) over 1 million roaches in her lifetime . German roaches often pollute food & food products with their waste, 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 an ecological niche in buildings and is resilient & hardy against pesticides . This is because of the sheer 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 meager size. That is also the main reason reason that they can most effectively be eliminated with baits in crevices & cracks .

Southern Pest Management 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 roaches are often confused for the German Cockroaches , in most cases, establishing their identity by observed behavior and location . Specifically, Asian roaches are capable of sustained flight and more likely live outdoors . German roaches cannot fly and are the home invaders . Typically Asian cockroaches live primarily outdoors , while German cockroaches tend to take over homes . Outdoors Asian roaches are more likely located in moist & shady areas. Asian cockroaches are most active at sunset and fly a long toward sources of light . 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 effective in preventing further infestation.

However, our pest control expert can discuss further treatment , as cockroach populations grow quickly and are difficult to control without skilled assistance .

AMERICAN COCKROACHES

Both male and female American cockroaches can fly .  The wings develop by the time they become adults. American cockroaches normally live outside . They prefer damp, warm areas like flower beds , and under mulch. All over the US , 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 prevalent in sewer systems of many metropolitan areas . American cockroaches enter homes to find food and water .  Roaches can easily pass under doors if the weather stripping is damaged . Garages and basements are also common entry points . When American cockroaches enter homes , they often go to   bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and basements .

ORIENTAL COCKROACHES

Oriental cockroaches search for cool, dark & damp areas such as those under sinks and washing machines , and in damp basements. This species, which is less wary and more sluggish than the other species , of concern because it travels through sewer pipes and can live on filth . Adult Oriental cockroaches are about 1″ long . Both female and male adults are very dark brown, nearly black ; their bodies usually have a shiny finish .

SMOKYBROWN (SMOKY BROWN) ROACH

These roaches become a nuisance when attracted by house lights , they enter homes through cracked in gaps, doors and windows into the home. They contaminate the surfaces they touch , spreading diseases 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 large , flying roaches so it can be upsetting to most people.

OUR COCKROACH APPROACH:

We inspect your house — inside & outside . There are many things the Tech   will do during the inspection:
• Identify areas of cockroach activity.
• Locate the areas of concern .
• Identify any suspect entrances 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 all pests from getting inside your home. We will provide you with the price to seal up your home from bugs .
o Habitat Modification: If roaches are living in and around your home , we provide you with a   list of things that you need to change to reduce on the things in your   home or yard that are attracting bugs .

• 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 visits to your home, they will inspect. There are several things he will do during the inspection:
• See how the last treatment worked .
• Verify if there is any cockroach activity.
• Emphasize moving forward with habitat modifications suggested to homeowner .  Identify any new changes to the home or landscape that might make your home susceptible to cockroach infestation .

SCORPION CONTROL

A scorpion is best noted , unfortunately, for its sting. In some parts 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 so prolific all over Northern 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 the same to every pest that we manage .
• We perform a thorough inspection.
• Determine what is the target pest.
• Devise a plan .

With our 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 moisture in places that have maybe improper fitted pipes or faulty plumbing, bathrooms and other areas of high moisture or condensation . Silverfish look for the humidity. Silverfish cannot survive inside buildings in low relative humidity, so take measures to reduce it by using a dehumidifier. The goal should be a relative humidity below 50% year-round.

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

It is common to find Silverfish in the basement areas & attics . 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 rocks, stones, wood piles and leaf debris . Silverfish prefer warm temperatures. Remove any possible harborage areas such as leaf, grass, and wood piles near your home . Keep gutters debris-free .

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 and the use of weather stripping around windows and doors.

SPIDER CONTROL

Our approach with Spider Control is identical to every pest that we handle.
• We perform a thorough inspection.
• Determine / Confirm the target pest.
• Devise a strategy.

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. Many species of spiders are common household pests in the United States. 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 , nooks & crannies 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. Let’s make this CLEAR … every “cobweb” was made by a spider.

Rather than posting 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
