Pest Control

How Can I Keep from Getting Bugs and Spiders in my House?
There are several effective ways to control insects in your house:
  1. Keep your house clean: Cleanliness is key to keeping insects away. Regularly sweep and mop your floors, wipe down surfaces, and take out the trash regularly.
  2. Seal cracks and crevices: Insects can enter your home through small cracks and crevices, so be sure to seal them up with caulk or weatherstripping.
  3. Store food properly: Keep your food in airtight containers, and don't leave any food out on counters or in the open.
  4. Use insect repellents: There are many insect repellents available, including sprays, baits, and traps. Choose the one that works best for the type of insect you are dealing with. A licensed applicator can help identify and come up with a treatment plan that will work best for you.
  5. Use natural remedies: There are many natural remedies that can help repel insects, such as using essential oils like peppermint, eucalyptus, or tea tree oil, or planting certain herbs like basil, lavender, or mint.
  6. Call a professional exterminator: If you have a problem with insects or spiders, or would like to keep from having insects or spiders in your house there are great insecticides to use for preventative measures, or others that we can use to treat an already existing problem. The protective barrier a licensed technician can apply combined with the above methods can help keep your house insect and spider free!
Are Pest Control Treatments Safe for Kids & Pets?
Yes! As long as insecticides are applied according to the label they are completely safe to use with kids and pets. One of the benefits of using a licensed applicator is that they are trained on which products are safe for certain areas and know how to apply the product according to the labeled rates. Eliminate the guess work and feel safe knowing your home can be protected today!

How often do I need to Treat for Insects and Spiders?
For our complete pest control plan we recommend treating about every six weeks. The residual from the insecticide should last about a month, so by six weeks your barrier has worn off and we recommend reapplying to have the most effective control. For interior pest control treatments we usually recommend that they be done on an as-needed basis. If you have a severe infestation you might want to plan to treat ever six weeks until control is gained.

What type of Insects does a Pest Control treatment kill?
Almost all of the common insects you’ll find in Eastern Idaho can be controlled with insecticide applications. Looking for control of a specific insect? Give us a call and we’d love to have a licensed technician visit with you about the best method of control.
