Bullseye Pest Defense’s approach to insect and rodent control works as a partnership between their technicians and clients. Before spraying areas with ecofriendly products or laying traps baited with Krispy Kreme donuts, a property survey is taken to identify conditions that lead to pest activity and breeding. Clients are educated on sanitation issues around the dwelling that may attract critters, such as ants, roaches, and mice, before techs seal off potential points of entry. Their services also take care of spider, bee, and house-elf infestations and vanquish mosquitos from recreational areas.
