Centipedes, Millipedes, and Earwigs

Centipedes, Millipedes and Earwigs

Centipedes, millipedes and earwigs are occasional invaders. These pest invade your home anytime from late spring to early fall. The first step to control these occasional invaders is to conduct a thorough inspection of the structure and its surroundings to determine  all possible breeding sites, harborage site, and pest entry points to the structure to determine the  severity of the infestation.

To treat these pest  infestations, we use residual pesticide to eliminate any breeding and harborage location.  While DIY ant control methods may provide temporary relief, they are unlikely to fully eliminate the problem. Attempting to tackle any pest control  on your own often leads to a frustrating cycle of the pests returning again and again. Save yourself the headache and let our professionals handle it.
