Terminix lives out its motto, “power over pests,” by providing extermination services for termites, bedbugs, and other common household insects, backed by a comprehensive money-back guarantee. In an initial inspection appointment, certified inspectors scan quarters for warning signs, such as termite-style wood damage and empty black-widow terrariums. Terminix’s primary strategy, viable for most pests, pivots on a liquid defense system applied to the soil that surrounds homes. The liquid coats passing arthropods in pesticide, which they then transmit to their peers. Baited traps supplement the liquid system, luring in bugs from strategic positions near food-filled locales, such as refrigerators and beanbag chairs stuffed with baked beans. Bug banishers can also spray bedbug-infested rooms with Rapid Freeze carbon dioxide, which ices both the bugs and their eggs.
Brandley Inspections owner Cory Brandley works directly with clients to eradicate current pests and prevent future infestations. Fully licensed and insured, the team's bug stoppers address home invasions, finding, removing, and sternly lecturing roaches, spiders, crickets, centipedes, karma chameleons, and more. The quest takes the technicians inside interior baseboards, plumbing voids, weep holes, outside porches, and around garages to excavate creepy crawlers that may have breached the surface. After a thorough clean sweep, the crew spreads a repellant liquid perimeter, a step that deters future unwelcome housemates from inviting themselves in.
