Clemson graduate Ricky Wingard helms the staff at Econ-O-Bug, a local business dedicated to evicting pests and termites from homes and repairing damage caused by termites. Staff members can tackle infestations of ants, roaches, rodents, bed bugs, and ticks, among other creatures, and they complete their work with a focus on customer service.
Triad Pest Control’s technicians have protected homes from pests and rodents for more than 25 years. Wielding organic, green products, they work with clients to develop integrated pest-management solutions that can stave off myriad pests and creepy crawlies such as ants, spiders, crickets, fleas, earwigs, roaches, rats, and mice. Their services also extend to shield against yellow jackets, bees, and hornets, and their mosquito treatments help protect families from annoying mosquitos and their accompanying dangers, such as West Nile virus.
The professionals at MosquitoNix ensure that backyard parties, picnics, and barbecues remain human-only affairs via one-time fogging applications and custom-designed, permanent misting systems. Permanent systems mist properties three to four times a day from nozzles around the perimeter of the house that are hidden so mosquitoes can't find them and clog them with chewing gum. Their solutions effectively eliminate mosquitoes with a mix of pyrethrum, permethrin, essential oils, and other active ingredients.
PestPlus works with customers to customize pest-, rodent-, and termite-control systems to meet both the needs of properties and the sizes of budgets. Customers can schedule bimonthly, monthly, or quarterly treatments, and include add-on services such as moisture barriers, which can help prevent termites from reaching homes’ foundations.
Workers from General Pest Co. treat pest and wildlife problems with a constant eye for the means of least impact to both the critters and homeowners. Experts espouse low-impact techniques to tackle common bugs, calling on pesticides only when necessary and using no more chemicals than are required to wipe out damaging populations of bed bugs and termites. For furry invaders, they use only humane techniques to safely remove wildlife from homes and ensure they do not return before repairing damage to attics or insulation from the wildlife visitors. The staff often gets results from simple corrective measures such as carefully sealing up gaps and holes in homes' exteriors and asking visiting beekeepers to leave their briefcases outside.
