The uniformed technicians of A-Star Pest Control rely on IPM, or integrated pest management, to evict unwanted guests from the premises in a quick, safe manner. They arrive at residential or commercial job sites equipped with the industry's latest technology that enables them to do away with everything from ants to bedbugs to termites. Instead of trying to get a straight answer from the bugs themselves on which treatments work best, A-Star team members frequently participate in meetings to review the latest findings in treatment procedures.

When Irving and Shirley Brussell founded Brussell Exterminating Services in 1947, they began doing what no one else wanted to: ridding homes of all unwanted pests. Today, the company's licensed team of exterminators continue to handle infestations of unwanted critters ranging from termites and ants to mice and house guests overstaying their welcome.

This big-picture approach includes both biological intervention—such as growth regulators or parasites—as well as traps and changes in household habits, such as sanitation.
