The specialists at Mosquito Control of Mississippi collaborate with a mix of natural and organic formulas to eliminate existing pests and discourage future breeding. For their own safety, the crew members refuse to work with synthetic chemicals. Instead, they use solutions that naturally repel mosquitoes, spiders, and similar pests that would otherwise thrive in warm and damp vegetation. During routine treatments, the crew applies the solution to shrubs and plants while paying careful attention not to damage flowers or make undercover garden gnomes blow their covers by sneezing. These treatments can last for up to 21 days. Event treatments are also available to ensure coverage during outdoor weddings and holiday barbecues.

Specialty Electric's current-guiding gurus scrutinize your home or business' wiring, seeking signs of disrepair and curing minor maladies.

A breaker box diagnosis curbs endless fuse appetites, and meter panels and outside boxes get a once-over to ensure safe operation. Owners receive a compiled report of the findings and appropriately affectionate farewell from the electricians before they depart.
Round 'Da House's fully licensed and insured owner Mike Woodson gives personal attention to every wheezing central-air-conditioning system or befouled exteriors under his care. The A/C tune up starts with a thorough de-gunkifying of the outside condenser coil, allowing the machine to return to shrinking heat molecules and shipping them back to the sun from which they came. Then Round 'Da House's temperature technician will peruse the air conditioner's guts to check its Freon levels and pinpoint why it keeps broadcasting the sound waves of French soap operas. With the pressure-washing option, the house gets a refreshing motor-powered bath to enliven bleak-spirited bricks and sullied siding.
