Have a licensed pest control professional inspect your home and perform an initial treatment to rid your home of any existing pests.
You can expect an initial service to include a thorough inspection to identify immediate problems, and seek out possible danger spots in your kitchen, bathroom, basement, garage, woodpile, and any other commonly infested areas. Discuss with your specialist about possible treatment options.
Season after season, your home will be exposed to different types of pests -- roaches, ants, spiders, birds, and rodents will all be trying to make a home in yours. To make sure the pests you’ve so carefully eliminated don’t return, you can contract for continuing regular pest control services.
