Let Us Help

Our nation is in crisis right now. I know it’s a scary time for all of us. This COVID-19 has us all wondering , “Who’s next?” I can’t speak for all Pest Management teams , but the group of professionals I work with, really wants to help.

Pest management professionals want you , the American public, to stay safe. That’s part of the services we provide. We help protect your food source, your clothing, your cars, your animals, your appliances, and everything that makes it to your home. We protect these things while they are still in the manufacturing stages, so let us continue to protect them after they arrive in your homes or businesses.

For those who think you don’t need pest control services right now, I would say to you – “Insects don’t care about what’s going on in the world. They are just looking for their next meal.” Insects, rodents, birds, and other wildlife are vectors of disease. If your pest issue gets out of control because you have stopped letting your PCO come to do his or her job, consequences later, could make pest populations rise dramatically. Most of the country had a mild winter. Grain crops, trees, and weeds are starting to bloom. Hence, here come the pest issues.

If you must cut back on pest services, most, if not all, companies will tailor service frequency to your needs &/or wants. At a minimum, let your PCO have access to the outside of your home or business. From there, we can perform services that will help pest-proof around the foundation, soffits, windows, flower beds and many other places. We can still keep rodents, wildlife and insects at bay with trapping, exclusion, and pesticide use, when necessary.

We are the small hometown businesses and big companies you have always trusted. Government has declared pest control services as essential. Keep those lines of communication open. We all can come out on the other side knowing how we helped each other.

My career in pest management began while working in a flour mill as the “in-house” technician in 2008. I am certified in multiple states. I began working full time as a fumigation-pest control tech in 2010. I achieved my Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) in 2018. I have a Master Tech certification from Kansas State University/Kansas Pest Control Association. I hold a Bat Management certification from NWCOA. Every day, I realize how much I DON’T KNOW. My goal for this blog is to share my every day experiences from the field and to make us all think outside the box for solutions to make pest control make sense.
