You got your four seasons. Spring, summer, autumn and winter. Usually the local forecast genie will trumpet the beginning of each quarter during the weather segment on the TV. That’s your cue. You don’t have to start right then, but in the next few days you should consider a plan to make your home or apartment bug-proof until the next season rolls around.
It’s called performing “quarterly pest control.” That’s when you should lay-down the law. You can DIY it, but those who live in overwhelming infestations, ring us up. We get out the bug spray, traps or insect dust and hit every perimeter inside and out. This is the best way that Vulcan Termite and Pest Control, Inc. has found to virtually keep the bug population in check. Set-up a schedule with us and we’ll handle the dirty work.
What We’ll Do
By practicing quarterly pest control, we’ll all have power over silverfish, scorpions, spiders, most ant species and centipedes. The tougher ones like fleas, German cockroaches, bedbugs, termites and other ant species may need us to set-up a system of IGRs (insect growth regulators) and baits.
The biggest benefit of our procedures is that almost immediately the creepy-crawlers will vanish. No magic. Just good science does the trick. Got a large plague? May take a smidge more time, but they’ll eventually croak.
Out, Out Damned Roach!
Frankly, roaches are a pain in the butt. They carry disease and have colonies that can number in the hundreds. Here’s what we’ll do:
- Exterior Spray Application.
Outside we’ll apply a hefty treatment of a general purpose liquid pesticide. Vulcan Termite and Pest Control, Inc. will blast the entire perimeter of the home. We’re likewise looking at doors and window frames where roaches get inside your place.
- Interior Bait Application.
We think that rather than spritzing, we’ll use a roach bait gel. Not much of this is needed. We simply put a little dab in corners of every room. That’ll do ya.
Have a Deadly Flea Sale
Here’s where quarterly pest control really shines. Even if you don’t have pets but live in an environment where the previous occupants had a cat or a dog, you may have a problem and not detect it until someone gets bitten by a tiny hopper. They live in rugs and furniture.
Our treatment includes spritzing every nook-and-cranny with the correct insecticide to bounce their existence into dead-land. Again, if you do have a pet, it’s truly important to get on this regimen. Likewise, visit your vet and put your animals on a once-a-month pill to kill not only fleas but ticks.
Think of your pest control company as not merely a soldier with a killing machine. On our staff we have a dedicated scientist who knows all there is to know about bugs on Earth. This fella can ID a bug and prescribe the right stuff for our folks to use.
A cautionary note: If you have an invasion of small critters from Outer Space, we’ll give you the number for the Men in Black. Who knows, maybe Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones will show up.
