On the surface, pest control may seem like a simple task… find the pest’s home and treat the area with something to kill the pests. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Like all living things, pests have different stages of life… all of which need to be treated. AND… in many cases there is a queen involved, who lives a very long time and who produces hundreds, even thousands of offspring. So… when you treat what appears to be the pest’s home, you might only be “scratching the surface” of the problem. In many cases you’re actually compounding the problem by applying over-the-counter chemicals, because many times they only irritate the pests you’re treating and draw more offspring to the treated area.
