Pest Control Services

Professional pest control services are an essential part of ensuring your home and property remain pest-free. They remove roaches, ants, rodents and spiders from your home.

In addition, they also make sure that your family and pets are safe from the toxins and chemicals used to kill these pests. Many of these companies use non-toxic materials that are still very effective at ridding your home of unwanted visitors.


Pests in health facilities are a constant challenge to manage. Aside from ensuring sanitation and compliance with state and federal regulations, health care facilities must also keep sensitive populations safe and protected.

One way to ensure that pests don’t become a problem is through prevention. By removing sources of food, water and shelter, as well as structures that pests can easily access, you can prevent infestations and limit the spread of harmful organisms within your facility.

During construction and landscaping projects, consider adding pest-proof barriers and establishing good exclusion practices to prevent pests from getting inside structures. Sealing gaps and cracks in the foundation, around pipes and vents and in exterior walls are all effective ways to exclude pests from entering your structure.

Another way to prevent pests is to manage your inventory by implementing first-in, first-out inventory and material inspection protocols. This prevents the introduction of pests into your facility that may have entered your inventory via contaminated pallets and bulk materials.


Pests are organisms that damage or interfere with desirable plants in our fields and orchards, landscapes, forests, or other areas. They can also be harmful to human health, water quality, and animal life.

Control aims to reduce pest populations or damage to an acceptable level. The goal may be prevention if the pest’s presence can be predicted in advance; suppression if the population is too large to tolerate; or eradication if an entire pest population should be destroyed.

Suppression tactics include cultural practices, physical barriers, and biological controls. These measures disrupt the environment of a pest, block its movement, or make it unsuitable for its survival.

Biological controls involve the conservation or release of natural enemies such as beneficial mites that feed on mite pests in orchards; parasitic nematodes that kill soil grubs; and Encarsia formosa, a wasp that parasitizes the greenhouse whitefly. In addition, development of refuges by establishing areas of flowering plants and shrubs supplies nectar and shelter for pest natural enemies.


Whether it is an insect, mite, weed or disease, pest identification is vital to successful management. Having an accurate picture of the pests on your property can lead to effective control tactics that are cost-effective and cause the least harm to people and the environment.

In addition to identifying the pest, you must also check the surrounding environment for conditions that may encourage pest populations. These conditions include temperature, moisture levels, and other environmental factors.

Once the pest has been properly identified, you must then determine if it is a problem that requires control. Several factors may influence this decision, including legal requirements and the level at which the population exceeds an action threshold.


Pests are organisms that affect our plants and wildlands, or that damage homes, buildings or other structures. They can also transmit disease or be a nuisance.

There are a variety of treatments available to reduce and eliminate pests. They include a range of chemical solutions and biological methods.

Some of the most common options for pest control are liquid insecticides, termite fumigation and baits. These chemicals are designed to kill pests quickly.

These treatments should be used as a last line of defense for infestations that are too severe to get rid of on their own. They should be performed only by licensed pest control technicians and should only be applied in a responsible manner that minimizes the risk of harm to humans, animals, and the environment.

Many consumers have been deeply concerned over the use of poisons to exterminate household pests. The recent case of a Delaware family suffering life-threatening injuries from a banned pesticide has sparked intense emotion among people across the country.
