Do I really need to hire a pest control service?

Yes, you may not wish to perform electrical or plumbing services in your home or business for the same reason. Pest control employees are trained, licensed, and certified based on the services they perform. At Accurate Pest Control, the owner operates under a Commercial Applicators License as well as various employees. The license allows us to purchase restricted use pesticides and operate the business. It also creates an environment enabling individuals to be apprentices and technicians under the company umbrella.

Being certified means our employees have been through the proper training, secured the credentials, took the exam, and have appropriate insurance. Certain pesticides cannot be purchased or applied if you do not have the necessary license.

At Accurate Pest Control, we perform services other than just treatments. Our teams may include a licensed pest control technician and a technician specializing in construction and exclusion services. If pest and wildlife damages are significant, it will require this team to eradicate the pests and rebuild from the damage caused by pests and wildlife.

Why should I hire a pest control company?

A do-it-yourself mindset exists in many situations. Homeowners or business owners attempt to manage the problem themselves and often incorrectly apply pesticides and insecticides. Let’s leave this to the professionals:

We are experts.

As discussed, pest control professionals are trained in multiple aspects of pest control and removal of nuisance wildlife. They assess the situation and address the problem using the safest and most efficient methods.

We are skilled in identifying and eliminating pests.

Few people know the difference between a hornet, a wasp, and a mortar bee. Removal and treatment of each are different, and identifying the pest will determine the treatment and elimination. This ensures safe and minimal use of pesticides and a plan to ensure these pests do not return.

Ensure your health and safety.

Stinging, flying and crawling insects pose a threat to humans. Bee stings and bug bites are painful, and in some cases, can be deadly if there is an allergy present. Rodents, bats, and other wildlife pests leave behind urine, droppings, mites, and other pathogens that can cause serious health risks. Combine the damages and effects from the pests and possible improper use of chemicals and treatment, and a homeowner can find themselves in a terrible position.

Experience to avoid damage and repairs.

Mice, bees, wildlife, ants, termites, and bedbugs damage your interior home, attic space, and basements. Incorrect and unsafe removal of large nests and hives can damage soffits, gutters, and living space. Termites require a treatment plan and a full inspection by a trained professional to access the damage and rebuild. Our team is experienced with proper removal and eradication. Should the infestation be significant, we will remove, clean, sanitize, and repair the area.

Upon initial inspection, we will review the process we used to remove and eliminate the pests and wildlife. Then we can concentrate on prevention.

  • Inspect all exterior doors and windows for gaps and repair damaged screens.
  • Inspect screen vents and openings to chimneys.
  • Seal cracks and holes, including areas where utilities and pipes enter the home. Use caulk, steel wool, or a combination of both.
  • Store food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly.
  • Keep attics, basements, and crawl spaces ventilated and dry.
  • Replace loose mortar & weather stripping around basement foundation and windows.
  • Eliminate all moisture sites, including leaking pipes and clogged drains. They are a host and breeding site for pests.
