|HOW TO BAN
BUGS & MICE FROM YOUR HOUSE:
|The following steps will help you keep
your home pest-free.
ant control is a prime concern to home owners since these ants are a wood destroying
insect. They can work unnoticed in attics, in walls, between floors, any out of sight area
cutting the wood during their nesting process and weaking the structure. Wet wood is
their prime nesting area. The water source can come from roof leaks around chimneys and
sky lights, leaking plumbing including shower, toilet seal, dishwasher, sink, etc. Repairs
to eliminate their water source and our effective baiting/spraying service will eliminate
the carpenter ant colony. Keeping the structure treated inside and outside will maintain
control. Our service can be tailored to fit your needs!
other indoor pests:

Invaders and other Outdoor Pests:
||Move your garbage collection area away from the house. Caulk around doors,
windows and ulility inlets. Store firewood away from the house. Use screens in doors and
windows. Install "non-attracting" or yellow light bulbs at entry doors. Repair
cracks in foundation walls, especially basement. Clean gutters and down-spouts. Remove
leaf litter promptly.
Thin shrubs and trees away from house
and garage. Eliminate damp, wet areas ants are attracted to. Repair or replace water
damaged wood where carpenter ants will nest. Outside barrier treatments using liquid
insecticides and/or granules will help reduce or eliminate many pest problems inside the
house if applied on a regular treatment schedule. Professional services and do-it-yourself

Control, Inc. You have a choice!!
||Found on pets, near pet areas inside & yard areas pets
frequent. Fleas reproduce rapidly during hot, humid weather.
Feas will feed on any convenient host, people as well as pets causing irritating, itchy
bites. Have a veterinarian treat your pet for fleas before returning it to your home. Wash
pet bedding often in hot, soapy water. Vacuum thoroughly in areas where pets spend time.
Inspect pets for fleas and ticks often, especially in summer. Treating the yard with
insecticide granules (works with frequent watering) or yard spray (best used if yard is
not watered very often) during the summer months will help prevent infestations from
occuring due to stray animals such as squirrels, racoons, dogs, cats, etc visiting your
yard and dropping off fleas for your pet and family members to pick up and transport into
your home and vehicles. Pet, house, yard and vehicle treatments are necessary when flea
infestation occurs. Flea pest control is available at our retail store and order online.
||Most species hide in cracks, dark areas or webs, may bite if disturbed.
Black Widow and Brown Recluse species are poisonous. Sealing cracks & crevices around
foundation walls & windows (in window wells), door sweeps to close gaps under doors
& sealing loose fitting doors will help keep spiders outside. Frequent vacuuming of
baseboards behind furniture, corners of rooms & windows and closet areas will
discourage spiders from nesting in undisturbed areas.
||Active at night, hidden in mulch & dark areas during the day.
Scavenges on dead plant & animal material. Found in cool, damp ground cover. Nuisance
garden pest that comes inside at night thru gaps & cracks around doors, windows,
