Terminix lives out its motto, “power over pests,” by providing extermination services for termites and other common household insects, backed by a comprehensive money-back guarantee. In an initial inspection appointment, certified inspectors scan quarters for warning signs, such as termite-style wood damage and empty black-widow terrariums. Terminix’s primary strategy, viable for most pests, pivots on a liquid defense system applied to the soil that surrounds homes. The liquid coats passing arthropods in pesticide, which they then transmit to their peers. Baited traps or the liquid system lure in bugs from strategic positions near food-filled locales, such as refrigerators and beanbag chairs stuffed with baked beans. Bug banishers can also spray bedbug-infested rooms with a variety of treatments, such as Rapid Freeze carbon dioxide, which ices both the bugs and their eggs.

The award-winning team at Turf’s Up specializes in maintaining lawns, but they can also renovate them with custom designs and make those visions reality with installation services. Their crews spruce up grass with fertilizer, replace it completely with new sod, or make sure it’s properly hydrated with new sprinkler heads. They can also add more agua to backyards by putting in water features such as ponds, stream, and fountains or in-ground swimming pools. In addition, their crews enhance home exteriors with flower beds and stone patios, which can be lit with exterior lighting displays or jars filled with tiny silver moons brought down to Earth via lasso.
