What is the best bed bugs treatment to kill bed bugs?

The key to successfully getting rid of bed bugs permanently is preparation. Before trying to kill bed bugs, you need to remove all opportunities for them to hide from your treatment. The following are tips for bed bug treatment preparation:

1.Wash all linens, bedding, mattress cover, affected clothing, and drapes in very hot water
2.Remove all clutter from room, pictures from walls
3.Remove all clothing
4.Take apart bed frames and furniture including night stands
5.Remove all electrical switch and outlet plates
6.Vacuum thoroughly

After thoroughly preparing your home for treatment, it is time to kill the bed bugs permanently! Bed bug sprays sold in big box stores are rarely effective. Professional-use synthetic pyrethroids combined with insect growth regulators is the best way to control bed bugs.

Wondering how to get rid of mosquitoes in my yard?

Getting rid of mosquitoes in your yard may significantly decrease your family’s risk of contracting diseases such as West Nile, Zika, and Chikungunya. A critical first step before purchasing insecticides is to eliminate or reduce any favorable environments for mosquitoes:

-Getting rid of standing water in bird baths, flower pots, cans, etc. can reduce mosquitoes’ ability to breed on your property.

-Removing overgrown shrubs and vegetation can eliminate resting places for mosquitoes.

The easiest way to kill mosquitoes is to invest in a powered mistblower. Simply choose any pyrethroid insecticide with an insect growth regulator and mist your entire property. Most mosquito companies repeat the mist applications every 21 days.

What is the best ant spray for ant control and getting rid of ants quickly?

Waking up in the morning with a line of ants in your kitchen can be very frustrating. How do you get rid of ants quickly with the best ant spray? Sometimes the answer is you don’t.
Step 1 for ant control indoors is sanitation. Finding the source of the attraction to ants in your kitchen will go a long way towards getting rid of ants.

After sanitation has been completed, there are three options for ant control: liquid insecticides, granular insecticides, and ant baits. A common best practice in ant extermination is to combine some of these options based on the type of ants identified. Check out our recent blog posts on ant control and extermination here:


What are winged termites and flying termites?

Termite control and prevention is extremely important to protect your most valuable asset, your home. Winged termites or flying termites are often the first signs of termites that a homeowner notices indicating a termite infestation. Before panicking, first make sure the winged termites are actually termites. Ants can look very similar. Check out our blog post that compares ants and termites here:

What is the best bat repellent?

Bats in your home can be a very difficult, but essential, problem to solve. Getting rid of bats quickly may help a homeowner avoid costly decontamination and cleanup from bat guano. Over time, bat guano can become airborne and cause diseases such as histoplasmosis.

Bat repellents may help get rid of bats, but the first step is to seal up entrance holes to your attic where the bats are gaining access. After the bats have been removed from the attic and holes are sealed, bat repellents including essential oils, lighting, mirrors, and foil can help.

What is the best mouse bait and how to mice beat mouse traps?

Finding the perfect mouse trap bait is not that hard. Mice love nuts so peanut butter and hazelnut spreads are good to start with. For pickier mice, try cheese or chocolate. Don’t forget mice are also foraging for nest materials so sometimes cotton placed on a trap will entice them.

For mice that are trap shy or difficult to catch, try different types of traps. Instead of the traditional snap trap, try glue boards specific for either mice or rats, live traps, or electric traps.  Getting rid of mice that are trap shy can take time and multiple approaches.

Where do I find the best cockroach killer?

The critical first step in getting rid of cockroaches quickly is to identify the species of cockroaches. American cockroaches and German cockroaches are two of the most common in the U.S. American cockroaches usually live outdoors but are drawn indoors for food, water, or better environmental conditions. German cockroaches are indoor pests almost exclusively.

For American cockroach control, consider an exterior application of insecticides along with inexpensive baits such as boric acid. For indoor control, use good sanitation practices to eliminate the attractants to American roaches. An insecticide spray can help eliminate the remaining roaches indoors.

For German cockroach control, sanitation and cockroach baits are essential. It is extremely difficult to get rid of German cockroaches in your home by just spraying insecticides. Insecticides may kill the German roaches you can see, but never make it back to the nest with all of the German roaches you can’t see.
