The team of technicians from Nature's Pest Solutions descends upon infested homes armed with earth-safe products and a thirst for uprooting freeloading guests ranging from termites to mosquitoes. Upon entering a household, the technician evaluates the home for possible entry points, such as cracked baseboards and miniature revolving bookcases, before developing an action plan and treating the problem areas with pesticides that are entirely safe for pets and humans. For yards infested with mosquitoes, techs employ the company's signature misting system, which manually fogs the yard with a special machine and keeps the lawn free of the winged pests for about a month.
