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.
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.
Though employees sporting the Bug Avengers uniform could be referred to as exterminators or technicians, many see them as heroes. And for good reason: the team routinely rescues homeowners from perilous infestations such as termite colonies and mosquito nests. Rather than prescribing a general, one-size-fits-all solution, they assess the individual situation and recommend tailored attacks to the problems at hand, whether that means a full-scale fumigation or recommending a product from the local hardware store.
When ridding homes of pests, they strive to keep their services as environmentally-friendly as possible by limiting the chemicals they use and performing fixes such as sealing up critter entryways and recommending different food-storage solutions. They also perform complimentary termite inspections and during visits, they'll keep a lookout for potential moisture problems that could attract pests who can't resist a good pool party.
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.
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, which kills adult mosquitoes and ticks using synthetic chemicals that emulate a compound found in chrysanthemums. They take care to avoid blossoms and harming helpful bugs such as honeybees and sentient VW 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, as well as spray lawns and municipal places before outdoor events.
