Our Core Values

We Educate Our Customers

It is our job to inspect a building, and diagnose its relationship to the pest. The pest’s life cycle, diet and environmental needs are all calculated into the control plan.

Our thorough inspections are shared with our customers. Time is taken to explain how the structure can be altered and the environment manipulated. Our goal is for you never to have this pest problem again.

We educate our customers instead of convincing them they need our pest control services for the rest of their lives.

We Practice Honesty

So if you look at the bigger pest control companies’ websites, you may notice something. They show testimonials from long term customers. These companies also come across interested only in signing you to an annual contract for the rest of your life.

Sure some people would rather spray their homes 4 times a year than make the necessary repairs. And some repairs just cannot practically be made.

But seriously, pests are not that difficult to eliminate from your home permanently. We are going to be honest with you. And we are going to provide you with the answers to solve your pest problem; without a life long commitment.

Members of the Community

Honestly we get a lot of customers because we are local and we have a lot of good reviews.

We are lucky to attract the customers that we do. It makes it easy to perform at such a high level and get the reviews that we do.

We truly are blessed and in turn, we take great pride in our community.

  • Every summer we donate a portion of our profit to the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA.

  • This upcoming summer we will be sponsoring a Lakewood youth baseball team.
