Common household pests such as ants, termites, cockroaches, flies, and spiders can carry up to 33 types of bacteria, including some that cause illness in humans. They can eat away at a building's framework, as well as homeowners' ability to confidently sleep with their mouths open. This is why Terminix technicians aren't satisfied with simply eliminating current pest problems—they strive to also prevent future infestations, and they guarantee their ability to do so.
Terminix team members know all the obscure places where pests like to hide: in water-heater closets, fireplaces, the centers of donuts, plumbing penetrations, and the weep holes in wood-veneer walls. Their response to an infestation varies depending on the home's unique situation, but services may include sweeping away spider webs and wasps nests from the eaves of the home, setting up traps, dusting and spraying interior or exterior crevices that are prone to pests, and spraying around the home's foundation.

While humans congregate in kitchens and dining rooms, rodents prefer a house's less populated areas, such as attics and crawlspaces. That's where Attic Star's cleaning crew heads to assess the damage left behind by unwelcome critters. The crew will remove any contamination, and disinfect surfaces to rid attics of bacteria and unpleasant odors. If rodents have sullied insulation or air vents, Attic Star's personnel will carefully remove the tainted pieces before replacing and rodent-proofing each part. In fact, Attic Star offers rodent-proofing for entire houses, which saves homeowners the hassle of moving into a giant mousetrap.
