What to Expect From a Pest Control Service

From Contact to Ongoing Care

If you’re one of the very lucky few who haven’t needed to call in pest experts, but it seems as though your luck has finally run out and you’ve found yourself with a problem, you might be wondering how it all works. Calling in the experts doesn’t mean that you’ve failed at home or property management by any means. Nearly every property owner needs pest control help at some point in their lives and that’s exactly why companies like Impact Pest Elimination do what they do! Experts are there to help eliminate your pest problem promptly and efficiently. If you’ve never worked with a pest control specialist before, here’s a rundown of how the process looks with Impact Pest Elimination.

Evaluation

The first step after you contact us is to evaluate your specific situation. Every pest problem is different, so each job requires a thorough evaluation of your property and the issue at hand. We will set up a time for our team to come to your property and begin our evaluation. Our experts use a strategy known as Integrated Pest Management, or IPM. This method involves three steps:

  1. A thorough inspection and evaluation of the property that will uncover entry points for pests and their dwellings.
  2. Identification of the specific pest species. Our team includes expert entomologists that can identify pests and explain their specific behavior to enable us to better eliminate them from your property.
  3. Use of the appropriate treatment to eradicate the current pest infestation and prevent future infestations.

Our initial inspection and evaluation allows us to determine the appropriate course of action for your specific problem. As each pest and each infestation is different, using a one-size-fits-all solution simply isn’t the best course of action.

Action

The action we take to address your pest problem depends on your specific situation. However, IPM prioritizes using non-chemical solutions like biological controls and structural repairs across all pest problems, if applicable. Our goal is to leave your property how it was before the infestation without the use of toxic products. Our entomologists understand how pests operate and what their patterns are. That gives us key information in how we attack each pest. For example, if you’re faced with an ant problem, we want to know exactly what kind of ant and what their breeding and eating habits are. That way, we’ll know what method works best in getting rid of them. Many pest control companies use the same solution across a wide range of pests, but we find that attacking each specific case ends up in a better result. Multiple species of cockroaches, ants, spiders, rodents, silverfish, earwigs, wasps, centipedes and millipedes, and much, much more can cause problems in the Sunshine State and we’re prepared to tackle all of them!

Maintenance

The third step in the process should entail maintenance. Just getting rid of the initial infestation isn’t enough. Unless preventative and ongoing measures are taken to reduce the appeal of your property, it’s likely you’ll end up with another pest problem. Our team can determine what needs to be done after the initial issue is resolved to ensure your property remains pest-free. Things like our Turf Care service can not only help you maintain a healthy, vibrant lawn but also assist in reducing the chance of pest problems through ongoing maintenance. Whether you need us once, or partner with us throughout the ownership of your property, we’re here for you.

The best time to call and engage our professionals is at the first sight of any pest issue. You might notice droppings, nests, structural disruption, and more. Whatever you see, we should be the first call you make to get the process in motion. Waiting to contact the professionals for a pest problem can be costly and we’re here to help you from the minute you need us!
