Pestmaster technicians are trained to determine which methods are best, in any given situation. Our priorities will be to use non-chemical approaches. Our specific methods include, but are not limited to: vacuuming, screening, caulking, removing harborage, and other exclusion methods. If these are not practical or possible, then we will consider other methods, starting with Advion and EcoSMART and ending with low toxic alternatives like baits or gels if all other options are eliminated. Regardless of the IPM method employed, we will monitor the result to ensure that the pest control needs of your home or business are addressed. We at Pestmaster Services are fully committed to providing our customers with "green" sustainable pest and vegetation control services.
