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.
Mosquito Squad rids outdoor living spaces of unwanted pests with a wide range of insecticidal services. The treatment will cover up to half an acre of land with a fog specially formulated to eliminate mosquitoes and ticks on contact. Spraying sessions last roughly 15 minutes, and people and pets can return to playing each other in poker in the treated areas just 30 minutes after the fogging. Mosquitoes are thereby banned from the premises for 21 days, after which you will need to bring on the fog again to ward off winged intruders.
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.
AdvancePro Carpet Cleaning emerged more than a quarter of a century ago as a result of the owners' dissatisfaction with the day’s carpet-cleaning procedures. To develop a more-sophisticated and thorough method of cleaning, they practiced various techniques on their own carpets. They concluded that much of the mildew in carpets comes from moisture, which originates in homes’ crawl spaces. As a result, AdvancePro technicians expunge dirt and stains from deep within fibers and also spend time in crawl spaces, where they track down sources of moisture that can draw mold, mildew, and parched dust bunnies to carpets.
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.
