    previous experience with your sales rep and employees. The service call before this one was for small bugs. The young man who was here was excellent. He was polite, explained thoroughly what the problem was (fruit flies) and how to get rid of them. I meant to let you know how pleased we were with him. Also, Dave does an excellent job when he is here for regular visits.

    I am happy with how my house was serviced for Carpenter Bees. I asked for an estimate on possible Carpenter Bee exclusion. The Technician did not provide that information as requested.We called Cowleys office to have the technician come back to give us the estimate. We were told he needed another technician to help him with the estimate. We still have not been given that estimate.

    The representative examined the perimeter of the house and found where the mice may be getting in. He used copper wire to secure the area and placed poison boxes in several areas in the attic and garage. I hope the problem is now solved.

Our “most wanted” list of pests we work to control includes:

BedbugsBed bug treatment: Bedbugs populations are on the rise. Not known to transmit disease, bedbug bites cause itchy welts and allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. In addition, bedbugs are known to cause secondary skin infections, such as impetigo and ecthyma, emotional stress, and loss of wages. Infestations can be difficult to eliminate without professional help.


TermitesTermite control: Termites have been around for more than 200 million years. While we don’t foresee changing that, we can keep them away from your home for as long as you own it. The treatments we offer include formulations that are low in toxicity for humans and pets but that quickly infect and destroy entire termite colonies.


RodentsRodent control: If you are experiencing signs of rodent activity, contact us immediately. Because of incredible reproduction rates (four to eight babies, five to ten times per year), the problem will only get worse -- fast. Rodents, including mice and rats, can transmit disease, contaminate foodstuffs, gnaw on electrical wires, and shred insulation.


TicksTick control: Ticks are among the most worrisome of pests because they often go unnoticed, can be just as prevalent in your backyard as on a hiking trail, the seriousness of the diseases they transmit, and the difficulty of diagnosing and treating tick-borne diseases. We can help drastically reduce tick populations in your yard and suggest ways to discourage them from returning.

We can eliminate many other types of pests from your home
