When an outbreak of bedbugs overtook New York in 2010, residents, business owners, and members of the media alike turned to Steve Free for help. The expert exterminator had been combating pests for more than 20 years, captaining a team of highly trained technicians at The Bug Stops Here, Inc. Techs went to work immediately and still journey to more than 2,000 local homes, gardens, and workplaces each month to banish unwanted insects and rodents with their comprehensive Integrated Pest Management system. The system combines current information on the lifestyles, habits, and deep-seated insecurities of pests with the sensible use of professional control products, ensuring the most effective results with the least damage to the surrounding environment.
There is a war brewing across America's patios and backyard barbecues. Mosquitoes, ticks, and all pests capable of drawing up battle plans disrupt outdoor gatherings with their bites?a nuisance that the techs at Mosquito Squad hope to eradicate. Treaters of 70,000 households using their EPA-registered all-natural spray system, they mist pest-laden areas with a control solution that repels up to 95% of tiny infiltrators. Alternatively, they can take a natural approach that eschews chemicals for bug-repelling essential oils. However, the bug fighters aren't just focused on making outdoor events more comfortable; they also hope to quell the spread of insect-carried diseases such as West Nile virus.
