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.
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.
