Before exterminators, homeowners resorted to less effective pest-control methods, such as holding a mosquito by the throat and repeatedly screaming, "Who are you working for?" Take control with this Groupon.

Licensed, insured, and bonded, Loftin Exterminating's technicians annihilate pest issues. They do it with an effective, human- and environment-friendly method known as integrated pest management. It's a four-step system that begins with analyzing the life cycles of home invaders and whether pest control is truly needed. Next, they properly identify pests to determine if the issue can be solved without pesticides. Third, they manage indoor and outdoor spaces to prevent pests from becoming a threat. With all that information and preparation, they move on to the final step of control, which could include use of highly targeted chemicals such as pheromones to disrupt insects' reproduction cycles. Trapping, weeding, and pesticides are other options, with broadcast spraying of nonspecific pesticides as a last resort.
