Since 1936, the exterminators at Capitol Pest have proven their expertise to customers time and time again. But partial credit for their success must go to Dr. Russell Travers, the on-staff entomologist (insect expert) who chimes in when particularly tricky pest infestations threaten homes. Many pests are easy enough to treat without his help, though, such as common ants, ticks, stinkbugs, and termites. Some treatments, such as termite baiting use eco-friendly techniques?in this case, a lethal but EPA-approved termite bait set in soil around the home and inside its structure that spreads quickly throughout the entire colony.
Bed bugs, on the other hand, quickly succumb to an insecticide that reaches inside every mattress and piece of furniture, making it impossible for the blood suckers to get a good night's sleep. A similar fate awaits rats and mice when the exterminators employ their anti-rodent program, setting traps and baits where rodents are active within the home and providing a thorough inspection for rodent entry points. After an estimate is provided, the staff is capable of sealing any necessary areas, be it, screening a vent, installing door sweeps, or replacing bricks, wood trim, or using concrete.
In the early 1990's a group of Pest Control Professionals decided to band together and form a Pest Control Company for "The People". A company not founded on corporate restrictions or emphasis on "Big Business" profits. A company with solid core values based on ethics, responsibility, and fairness.
Since 2006, the exterminators from Recon Pest Control have freed structures from the tyranny of mosquitoes and ticks so inhabitants can enjoy their living spaces nuisance-free. Each Recon visit begins with a free evaluation, wherein a company representative looks around the property and creates a custom plan for treatment—a marked improvement over the one-size-fits-all method of baiting bugs with offers for free drinks.
When dealing with mosquitoes, the process typically includes treatment of trees, shrubs, and deck posts. Before finishing up the job, the technician also recommends methods to prevent future infestations, such as eliminating potential nesting spots and throwing away welcome mats that only send pests mixed signals.
