Pest Inspections and Treatment Services
Bed Bug incidences are on the rise in Central Ohio. The findings have become so wide spread that in October 2008, the Franklin County Health Department formed an inter-agency task force to address the issue (Columbus Bed Bug Task Force). Participants range from Pest Control Companies to Health, Code Enforcement and Housing Agencies.
Organic pest control products are all natural and are the least toxic methods available to pest proof your property. They are safe to use even for household plants and pets. Minimum risk pesticides, as determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, do not pose a risk to mankind or the environment as they are food grade materials.
Termites primarily feed on cellulose which is found in wood, paper, books, insulation, and even swimming pool liners and filtration systems. They can injure living trees and shrubs, but more often are a secondary invader of woody plants already in decline. While buildings may become infested at any time, termites are of particular importance when buying or selling a home since a termite inspection/infestation report is normally a condition of sale.
We are often asked which form of treatment is more effective and which one we would choose if it were our home that we were treating. We would without a doubt apply a non-repellant material, using a rod trench and drill method to encompass the entire structure. Our chemical of choice and the one we use most often is Termidor.
Discovering a pest problem is threatening a homeowner's property, family's health and even just their peace of mind can be a major annoyance. Plants, insects, mold, mildew, rodents, bacteria, and other organisms are a natural part of the environment.
Our on-site Gas Line Inspections utilize state of the art combustible gas leak detectors. When a suspect area is found, we will apply a liquid to verify leakage. Resolution of the problem area can be accomplished by DOT Certified Technicians and all work is done in compliance with Columbia Gas guide lines and all local codes.
