When it comes to priorities, protecting your family and your home is number one on the list, wouldn’t you agree? Everyone would agree that protecting our homes and families rank high on our list of priorities.
We protect our homes and families in many different ways, we purchase insurance, we provide security by installing locks and alarms, we protect our families from disease by seeing the doctor, we make sure that the car our family gets into is safe, and we make sure the kids are belted in for their safety too.
Pest control is just one more way that we can protect our homes and families. Pests can cause damage to your home, contaminate the food you eat, and expose your family to a variety of diseases. Some pests, such as Bed Bugs, Mites, and Fleas, use people as their food source. Needless to say, that is disconcerting and can strike fear into the hearts of people who are concerned with the safety of their families.
Our Residential Pest Control Services
At A-Alert, we offer a wide range of programs that can be customized for your specific problem or combinations of problems. Our services range from short-term programs that address immediate problems to long-term integrated pest management solutions. We work to educate our customers so they may make changes to their environment and behaviors to avoid future problems. In cases where the problem cannot be eliminated we offer ongoing service programs. This type of service is needed when the real cause of the problem is beyond the client’s control. For instance, if your home is located next to a rat infested building, live next to a neighbor who refuses treatment for cockroaches, or just near a property with a tree overrun by Carpenter Ants, continuing service would be necessary until the problem on the conjoining property is solved.
Our Pest Control Process
We are a company that employs Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles in our work. We try to use chemicals only when necessary and in a strategic way that minimizes both impact and risk. Our technicians will also help identify food sources for pests so that these sources can be eliminated, making the problem easier to address. By locating their food sources and other needed resources and then enacting strategies to rid them of their resources, we will be able to develop long-term strategies to prevent or lessen future pest problems. As long pests have easy access to food and are comfortable in your structure, they will continue to make themselves at home in your place of residence. By working directly with our clients and helping them understand the nature of their pest problem; we can reduce the number of repeated outbreaks and limit the number of service visits.
Protect Your Home From Pests
We can help you protect your home and family from the negative aspects that pests bring with them when they share our homes with us.
We are not a company that performs “cookie cutter” pest control where the protocols followed in every situation are just like the last situation and the next situation. While the pest does not change from place to place the environment they are adapting to does change from home to home. After all, your home is different than your neighbor’s, right? We believe that preventing future outbreaks is just as important as managing current problems. Simple prevention techniques include making your site less attractive than other locations in the area. In many cases, simply removing or limiting access to food, water, and other resources will cause the pests to seek out these resources elsewhere.
If you are experiencing a pest control problem, please contact our office to be connected to our specialists who will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and devise a strategy to eliminate the issue. On behalf of A-Alert, we look forward to hearing from you and working with you.
