Workers from General Pest Co. treat pest and wildlife problems with a constant eye for the means of least impact to both the critters and homeowners. Experts espouse low-impact techniques to tackle common bugs, calling on pesticides only when necessary and using no more chemicals than are required to wipe out damaging populations of bed bugs and termites. For furry invaders, they use only humane techniques to safely remove wildlife from homes and ensure they do not return before repairing damage to attics or insulation from the wildlife visitors. The staff often gets results from simple corrective measures such as carefully sealing up gaps and holes in homes' exteriors and asking visiting beekeepers to leave their briefcases outside.
Surprisingly, a mosquito's greatest fear likely isn't a lightning-fast swat—it's a chrysanthemum. Within the flower is a cocktail of compounds called pyrethrins, which have an insecticidal property when dried and crushed. Nowadays, pyrethrins are synthetically concocted for use in insect repellents, including those employed by Blue Ridge Mosquito Control, but they remain safe for the environment, humans, and pets. A fine mist of the solution keeps mosquitos away for 21 days, allowing homeowners to enjoy their lawns as nature intended: face down in the dirt.
A bulwark is defined as a defensive wall, and the skilled technicians at Bulwark Exterminating live up to that name with pest control services that stop unwanted creatures in their tracks. Using primarily outdoor treatments, the team seeks out infestations at the source, thus preventing them from invading the home. If they do make it in, however, Bulwark administers interior treatments to finish the job without trying to deter pests using "Beware of Dog" signs.
The professionals at MosquitoNix ensure that backyard parties, picnics, and barbecues remain human-only affairs via one-time fogging applications and custom-designed, permanent misting systems. Permanent systems mist properties three to four times a day from nozzles around the perimeter of the house that are hidden so mosquitoes can't find them and clog them with chewing gum. Their solutions effectively eliminate mosquitoes with a mix of pyrethrum, permethrin, essential oils, and other active ingredients.
