In your home, insects such as termites need to be removed completely. Termites that are not removed will eat away at the foundation and structure of your home causing extensive damage. Since termites regenerate and swarm each spring looking for new homes, a pest control plan that includes termite control will include a plan to protect your home against this fact of nature. If you welcome beneficial insects in your yard or garden areas, they are working hard to provide a natural pest control plan for you. But for those insects that your beneficial insects are not able to control, your pest control plan will need to understand that you want to provide an environment for the beneficial insects as well as remove the unwanted insects. You need a pest control plan that takes into consideration the kinds of insects that are around you and how to remove them from your environment. Frontline pest control exterminators are trained with a broad knowledge of insects, rodents, and other insects that you may encounter in your home, office or other property. And WOPD pest control exterminators have the skills and tools to rid your environment of those unwanted and uninvited guests.

Pests are a resilient bunch and are adept at hiding and entering a home in places you would never think. A pest management professional will know where to look for pests and make expert recommendations on what it will take to prevent or eliminate pests. Also, a licensed pest professional is the only person who can apply pesticides.
Results will vary according to the type of pest, treatment methods and products used. For example, immediate results can be seen when a yellow jacket nest is removed or treated with a liquid pesticide. However, when using baits for ants, rodents and termites the process takes longer since the pests have to ingest the product for it to be effective. Your inspector and technician will outline what your expectations for your particular problem should be.
Pests can pose a variety of threats to your family or home including: food-borne illnesses like E. coli and salmonella are transmitted to food by contact with rodents and cockroaches; stinging insect, fire ant and bed bug bites; and asthmatic allergic reactions to cockroaches are some of the health threats pests present. Termites, nuisance birds and wildlife, and rodents can also threaten your home’s structural integrity.
Bait treatments offer consumers peace of mind if they prefer not to have liquid chemicals applied in their home. The type of pest, the severity of the problem and other factors determine the type of treatment we implement.
Fleas, ticks and bed bugs are highly mobile pests and can be carried easily between locations or within an apartment building. Identifying the source of the infestation and taking the proper steps to ensure a re-infestation does not occur can take multiple service visits.
A regularly scheduled pest service will stop pests before they become a problem. It allows our technicians to watch for and spot possible signs of pest activity and act immediately to eliminate any threat. A preventative, pro-active approach to managing pests will keep your home and family safe from annoying and potentially harmful pests.
