A part-time wrestler and full-time pest annihilator, Johnny Cook draws on 18 years of extermination experience when he gets in the ring with the bugs infesting local homes. After nearly two decades in the pest-control business, Cook founded his own company to provide a better level of service than he encountered at large national groups. Emphasizing thoroughness and ethical business practices, he takes care of pest problems that appear inside and outside of his clients’ houses.
Jim Huthmaker knows bugs. The founder of Natural Roots Organic Pest Control began his career with the US Forest Service, spending a great deal of time outdoors learning the best ways to fend off insect attacks. He brings this knowledge to home pest control as a certified and licensed exterminator by the Department of Pesticide Regulation of South Carolina. After an initial inspection, he uproots colonies of critters such as ants, spiders, flies, and rodents on both the interior and exterior of the home, strictly with organic pesticides that aren't harmful to bees and other beneficial insects.
The exterminators at Pest-A-Con,LLC set interior and exterior barrier sprays to protect against the intrusion of pests such as cockroaches, flies, ants, and spiders. The team has been at it since 2000, and leverages their accumulated experience to rid homes and businesses of these pesky critters once and for all. Treatments not only kill off current populations but also protect against future infestations.
Annoyed by bites and wary of diseases carried by mosquitoes and ticks, Mosquito Squad spritzes its signature barrier spray across more than 20 states. Technicians protect home acreage with an EPA-registered spray that kills adult mosquitoes and ticks as well as up to 90% of other incoming insects using synthetic chemicals that emulate a compound found in chrysanthemums. They take care to avoid spraying blossoms and harming helpful bugs such as honeybees and sentient Volkswagen Beetles. As an alternative, staffers can spritz an all-natural spray, whose scent confuses and repels pests for about two weeks.
Mosquito Squad can also equip yards with remote-controlled automatic misting systems, and techs can spray lawns and municipal places before outdoor events.
