Pest Control Services
Pest infestation is inconvenient at best and a serious problem and safety hazard at worst. Many people understandably can’t live knowing some annoying pests lurk around their homes waiting to pop up for an unexpected scare.
Fortunately, our pest control experts are some of the finest in Canada and are experienced in dealing with all pest problems, from cockroach infestation to bed bugs and beyond; they can do it all.
So read on to learn more about our highly trained technicians and how they can secure you a pest-free environment.
Some of the most common pests in households are ants, wasps, mosquitoes, ticks, flies, bed bugs, cockroaches, and rodents such as mice, rats, and voles. Not all are equally annoying, but a pest problem is a pest problem. And especially in hot summer months, pest extermination could be an essential service.
The Importance of Pest Control Services
Is It Worth Getting Pests Professionally Controlled?
Pest management isn’t a simple luxury for the family’s comfort but rather a way of keeping your home or business office clean and safe while giving you peace of mind.
Even if you don’t see mice, rats, or cockroaches very often, they can still spread disease to your family or pets or even cause structural damage to homes.
For example, some insects like fleas, ants, cockroaches, and mosquitoes are known parasites for diseases like Lyme, strep, malaria, dengue, and more.
On the other hand, some rodents carry serious diseases that could destroy your body. For instance, rats and mice can spread the rabies virus, hantavirus, or even the plague.
If not diseases, some pests carry a punch of debilitating venom. Perhaps the most infamous venomous pests are the dreaded black widow spiders, whose neurotoxic venom is painful on the chest and abdomen and can even cause fatal damage in some rare cases.
Another safety risk of pests is allergens. To clarify, wasps, bed bugs, ants, and some other pests can either bite or sting you to spread toxins that can trigger allergic reactions in humans. Also, be careful of fire ants because those can bite and sting at the same time!
Lastly, think of the damage pests can do to homes. That’s right; if those stinky pests don’t come for your body, they’ll target your house, and especially any wooden structures you have.
For example, a puny crawling insect chews a new home inside the wood for itself and reproduces an entire colony there. Now imagine thousands of these chewing apart your wood day in and day out. Long story short, the situation can quickly become disastrous if left unnoticed or untreated.
Rodents like mice, rats, and even squirrels, are notorious for chewing on electric wires and causing outages. In the worst cases, a rodent can cause a burst that can start a house fire.
Why Use Pest Control Services?
Time and Money Savings
As we previously talked about, pests can damage your and your family’s health through disease, allergies, and venom. They can also cause structural damage to your home, office, or site. So it’s not difficult to imagine how much time and money you could spend to fix a problem caused by bugs.
One of the businesses that need advanced pest control services the most is the agriculture business, where pests can cause so much damage to crops that the entire business can go awry.
For reference, the Canadian Encyclopedia published this article which shows that yield losses due to pest problems can reach 10% for canola, 25% for cereal grains, 50% for potatoes, 70% for onions, and 100% for apples. So obviously, losing 25 to 100% of your work’s yield isn’t sustainable for any business.
And it’s not just businesses that can save time and money. For example, many households that neglect a pest problem spend time and money on healthcare for the hazards caused by pets and reparations for structural house damage.
It’s hard to measure the costs in exact numbers. Still, the Government of Canada published this report, which estimates that one invasive pests species would cost Canada $34 million a year and each $1 spent on prevention would save $3 spent on mitigation. So this gives you an idea of how efficient pest control is in the long term.
Pest Control Services Appearance
Pest control experts have an immediately noticeable appearance. And while technicians don’t wear white-collar suits or any formal office clothes, they have their professional, clean uniforms, a truck full of chemicals, and special equipment for the job.
Once our technicians arrive, they’ll inspect the place inside and out to identify pests or any signs of pests, such as cobwebs, nests, feces.
Depending on the findings of our technicians, they’ll cover your furniture to protect it then use the proper extermination method for the situation.
We’ll also take preventive measures to ensure you and your family are satisfied with the results for as long as possible.
What Are Pest Control Services?
Types of Pest Control Services
There are four types of pest control services: organic, chemical, biological, and electronic. So let’s look at each of them in a bit of detail.
Organic pest control is defined as a way of control without using artificial chemicals. This method is usually done using baits, traps, or organic substances like oil and vinegar, sometimes even in a spray bottle.
The opposite of organic is chemical, which involves using artificial chemicals, such as pesticides, to kill pests. Be careful with these chemicals, though, as they’re pretty easy to find in shops, and some of them may contain substances that are harmful to humans.
Next up is the biological one, which involves using another organism to get rid of pests. For example, you could introduce a natural predator to the pests’ natural habitat and let it kill them off. This method is used as an effective and chemical-free way of pest control.
Lastly, we have the most technologically advanced method of the four, which is electrical control. Nowadays, pest repellers shoot off electromagnetic or ultrasonic sound waves that exterminate pests from their surrounding areas.
Our Pest Control Methods
Before any extermination starts, we thoroughly search for pests in the entire space, paying extra attention to deep holes and caves where we know pests like to hide, especially when hibernating in winter and preparing a new wave to bombard your property.
Depending on the severity of the problem, we take our time to ensure no stone is left unturned and no pests remain after we’re done with our work. But at the same time, we only use high-tier commercial methods that are effective and leave no trace of harmful substances in your home.
What’s Included in Pest Control Services
Depending on the type of service you choose, you’ll find traps, chemicals, or repellents included in the pest control service. Either way, the tangible objects included come with a guarantee of a pest-free place suitable for living and working.
Professional Pest Control Equipment
Each expert is equipped with personal protection equipment (PPE). And no matter how many years of experience an expert has or how bulky PPE may look, wearing it is always mandatory at all times for their safety. For example, bee suits, booties, masks, gloves, and so on are all PPE.
Flashlights and headlamps are also helpful for most jobs where pests are stuck in nearly unreachable dark holes, so we provide them to each technician.
Furthermore, we use organic equipment, such as traps, baits, repellents, or any other equipment that attracts and kills pests. We also have some tested chemicals for stubborn bugs, which we use with our sprayers and aerosol foggers to aim them right at the pests.
Pest Control Examples
Examples of each type of pest control are using:
- Mouse traps to catch mice.
- Ladybugs to eat aphids.
- Electromagnetic repellents to destroy rodents.
