How to get rid of fleas and ticks?

Getting rid of fleas and ticks requires targeted treatment for insects at all life stages. Tick and flea control for the yard will require the use of a pesticide that’s rated to control these insects. The entire outdoor area will need to be treated to ensure that the entire population is eradicated. This can help prevent problems from developing indoors since most fleas and ticks enter the home by hitching a ride inside on pets or rodents.

Our professional exterminators also provide advice on preventative measures that can be taken such as keeping the lawn mowed and using safe flea control products for pets.

How to get rid of bees and wasps?

Getting rid of bees and wasps can be extremely difficult depending on the location of nests. For example, bumble bee nests are typically underground and can be hard to locate if you don’t know what to look for.

Removing bees and wasps begins with a careful inspection to identify the species and location of the nests. The nests will need to be treated with an appropriate insecticide then removed or sealed depending on the location.

If you have black and yellow wasps the problem is usually isolated outdoors. A wasp exterminator will examine the exterior of the structure as well as areas around decks, fences and trees. Once the property has been thoroughly inspected the exterminator will begin the paper wasp nest removal process.

You may also find bees in the house. When this occurs you will need the help of a professional exterminator because removal can be very complicated. Oftentimes bees will create hives within the walls where access is limited.

Why shouldn't you kill bees and hire a professional pest company?

In recent years the decline of the honey bee population has raised serious concerns since they are very beneficial in the pollination of fruits and vegetables. Instead of killing honey bees the goal is now to remove and relocate hives whenever possible.

That is why it’s highly recommended to call a bee pest control service rather than attempting to handle the problem on your own. It’s also an issue of safety. Honey bees are very protective of their hives and will sting if they feel threatened. Another factor is the sheer size and location of nests. Many mature colonies range between 20,000 and 100,000 honey bees. Bees that get into homes typically create nests within the walls and are very difficult to locate.

What types of lawn and outdoor pests do you exterminate?

Our lawn pest control is extremely comprehensive and can provide protection against a wide variety of stinging and biting pests, including:

  • Grass bugs like chiggers

  • Bees

Is lawn pest control safe for pets and children?

Lawn pest control is completely safe for pets and children when you use a reputable exterminator. Vulcan Termite and Pest Control Inc. only uses pesticides and treatments that have been deemed safe for use by the EPA. We also follow very strict protocol when treating a backyard or outdoor space to minimize accidental exposure.

How long should you stay off the lawn after spraying for pests?

That depends on the product that’s used. However, the recommendation is to always wait until the product has completely dried. Typically we suggest that clients keep people and pets off the lawn for at least 3-4 hours to allow for drying.

Your exterminator will let you know how long to stay off the lawn and any other precautions that need to be taken.
