The Extermination Station

Local Exterminators – Next Level Pest Control

What is an Exterminator?

Exterminators are professionals who specialize in the elimination of insects and vermin from a variety of different locations. Primarily it is assumed that exterminators only end ongoing infestations however, that is only half of the job. Exterminators also place a precedence on preventing pest problems in homes and commercial properties.

There is a misconception that exterminators are different from pest control experts however, the terms are, in fact, synonymous with one another. In the past, the term exterminator was more popularly utilized, while nowadays the terms pest control technician or pest control professional are more widely used both within the industry and colloquially.

What Do Exterminators Do?

Exterminators travel consistently throughout their service locations in order to perform on-sight inspections and treatments. When one of our exterminators visit your home, you can expect:

  • Professional discussion regarding your pest concerns and treatments
  • Comprehensive preventative outdoor treatments to secure the perimeter of your home
  • Complete indoor treatment (upon request)
  • In depth analysis and assessment of your particular pest issues in order to treat problems at their source 
  • Cutting edge techniques, professional tools, and eco-friendly products
  • Ongoing support and monitoring in between your scheduled visits

How Do You Know You Need an Exterminator?

  • You Suspect a Problem

There is a reason that pests are called pests. They cause problems. In fact, they can cause a multitude of problems from a simple annoyance all the way to your home burning down and contracting fatal diseases. If you suspect a problem, it is crucial to nip it in the bud.

  • You Have Children or Pets

Some DIY and at home sprays can be very toxic to children and pets. Furthermore, there are a myriad of different pests that can be extremely dangerous to the health of both your pets and children including (but not limited to) mosquitos, rodents, fleas, ticks, wasps, roaches, etc.

  • Bug Bites

You and your family should not be bitten. It is not only annoying, but depending on the culprits that are biting you, you could potentially be at risk of contracting some very detrimental and even life threatening diseases. If you are being bitten, it’s time to schedule a professional pest inspection.

  • Recurring Pest Problems

If you have tried to handle your own pest problems and your efforts have either failed or have not been long lasting, its time for professional extermination.

  • Dangerous Pests

In all honesty, it is important to seek professional intervention at the first signs of a pest infestation. Pests can damage your home and be extremely detrimental to your health. Rodents and carpenter ants can dismantle and even completely destroy your home; while spiders, wasps, bees, hornets, cockroaches, mice, rats, ticks, and mosquitos can all transmit deadly diseases. It is not worth the risk messing around with DIY pest control techniques when so much can be on the line and, the longer you wait, the worse a problem can become. Call your local exterminators if you suspect a pest infestation.

We focus on continuously fine tuning our methods and specializing our services in order to always provide our clients with the best service possible. However, even with all of that aside, the benefits you get from using professional extermination services are impossible to overlook. Just some of these benefits include:

  • Saving Money – infestations can be extremely devastating to your wallet due to the damage they cause in your home and to your health.

  • Eliminating Problems at their Source – years of experience, training, licensing, and perfecting techniques definitely count for something.

  • Safety/Protection – Depending on the type of pest you are dealing with, there can be dangers with trying to control them (ie. a large wasp nest). Hiring professional help keeps you and your family out of the line of fire, while our exterminators have the proper professional tools, gear, and experience to treat pest problems safely.

Exterminators VS. Wildlife Control VS. Animal Shelters

There is a bit of a misconception that the term “pest control” encompasses any creature that may be bothering you – whether it’s ants or skunks – however, this is not the case. In the business of “creature control” there are: pest control companies/exterminators, wildlife control/animal control companies, and animal shelters/humane societies. What separates these types of control companies are: the types of creatures being handled, the control methods that are used, and the licensing involved in the services.

We get many cross-calls for services we cannot perform, so the following information is a breakdown outlining the services and types of creatures that each different type of company handles, and serves as a guide to help you know who is the best to call for your particular issue.
