For many homeowners, pest management isn’t a top-of-mind concern, but that quickly changes at the first sight of a pest like a mouse, cockroach or other unwanted critters in your house. While turning to professional pest control services is often the best solution after an infestation develops, these emergency fixes can come with a high price tag and a fair share of stress. Rather than turning to an exterminator only when a problem arises, homeowners can benefit from investing in proactive, regular treatment. Our residential pest control services are designed to efficiently prevent pests from infesting your home. However, our experience has shown us that the majority of households only contact professionals when an infestation has already taken place. This is why pest eradication is also a major part of our services. Our residential pest control services will protect you from a wide variety of pests, and rodents.
Cockroaches can contaminate food and surfaces, destroy fabric and paper, transmit disease, cause allergies, and leave foul odours behind. Cockroaches are nocturnal creatures that love dark, warm, moist hiding places in cracks, crevices, or hard-to-reach corners. The first step to eradicating an infestation is removing food sources and hiding places, especially since cockroaches only return to habitable places. With a little detective work, a persistent strategy, and preventative measures, you can make your house an unattractive place for roaches, which will not only manage an infestation but also prevent them in the future.
Fleas are not only an itchy nuisance but may also be a disease risk for you and your pets. Cats and dogs can develop mild to severe flea allergy dermatitis, flea bite anemia, and internal parasites like tapeworms. People, especially children, are sometimes exposed to the parasites through interaction with flea-infested pets. Other sources of fleas include used rugs and upholstered furniture, as well as visiting animals. Adult fleas jump onto a new host either from an infected animal or from the areas where an infested animal rests. In a yard, moist and shaded soil in warm weather is attractive both to fleas and their hosts. Once on a pet, an adult flea burrows to the skin, bites the animal to get a good blood meal, and then settles in to reproduce. This is why controlling fleas fast is absolutely essential.
Ants are the most frequent and persistent pests encountered around homes and buildings. Besides being a nuisance, ants contaminate food, build unsightly mounds on the property, and cause damage by hollowing out wood and other materials for nesting. Species such as fire ants inflict painful stings, which can be life-threatening to hypersensitive individuals. To get rid of ants, it is important to identify the ant species before attempting ant control. Some ant species, like Pharaoh ants, can be controlled using baits, while others cannot. To get rid of ants successfully, it is usually necessary to follow them back to their colony and treat the colony directly. Bugocide Pest Control professionals have the experience to correctly identify your ants and kill them.

Give us a call today for a free estimate and the reassurance that we will get the job done quickly and efficiently, and restore safety to your home.
Silverfish are nocturnal members of the insect order Thysanura that thrive in high humidity and warm temperatures. They can move very fast, making them hard to see and live on a diet that includes starchy foods, paper, and fabric. A Silverfish infestation requires treatment of both the adult Silverfish and their harbourage. Trying to eliminate silverfish can be difficult. A professional treatment to get rid of a silverfish infestation is the most effective. At Bugocide, our certified technicians will be able to assess the situation and advise on the most effective treatments to manage the infestation in your home or business.
Although they are mostly beneficial to our environment, many people do have an inherent fear of spiders, known as Arachnophobia. This causes feelings of uneasiness at the mere sight of spiders, which in its extreme can lead to excessive sweating, crying and panic attacks. Professional spider control is important to control a large or repeat infestation. Our inspection and monitoring service is aimed at identifying specific spider species that may be an issue to a business and confirming those which are harmless. We can offer advice on how to spot the early signs of an infestation, to enable quick and effective targeted treatment if necessary.
Rats and mice pest management is all about taking preventative action. Exclusion tactics such as sealing entry points keep rodents out of buildings and help you avoid a full-scale invasion. Reduce the risk of accidental human, pet, and wildlife exposure to rodenticides by using non-chemical solutions to manage rodent invasions. Rats and mice are not only a nuisance but can also cause property damage and transmit diseases that pose a threat to public health. Our modern techniques of rodent control in large facilities have been immensely successful so far. Controlling rodent problems in homes is much easier, and Bugocide’s residential services will keep you free from disgusting rodents for a very long time.
Identifying wasps is difficult without professional training. Accurate identification is very important as it will help determine the best treatment. Wasps can be easily mistaken for other stinging insects such as bees. Bugocide Pest Control strongly advises against attempting to remove wasp nests by DIY methods as this can be highly dangerous. Our specialists have the appropriate equipment and wear protective gear to remove wasp nests safely. Although high numbers of wasps in your home or garden almost certainly means there is a nest nearby, getting rid of a nest may not always be a possible solution. If the nest is not on your property, you will have very limited control over what you can do to remove it. Nests located in confined, hard-to-reach areas will also be more difficult to treat. Therefore, it would be best to seek professional assistance.
Bed bugs are skilled hitchhikers. In fact, they are primarily transported by humans and human belongings like suitcases. This pest gets its name from the fact that it is usually found in close proximity to beds. That’s because bed bugs need the blood of warm-blooded animals to survive. Unfortunately, bed bugs can mature in about 35 days. They then live about seven to 12 months. This makes bed bug removal difficult to do without the help of a professional. The complexity of getting rid of bed bugs and their impact on businesses and families make professional control vital. Our educated and experienced pest control technicians follow strict protocols for inspection and treatment to ensure the complete elimination of these bugs.
