What To Expect From Our Treatment

Target The Source: First we identify and target the source of your pest problem with our custom treatment.

Inside Treatment: We then treat unfinished basements, garages, crawl spaces, trash areas, attics, wall voids, and even inside electrical sockets. Wherever there is the possibility for a pest to enter your home or make residence, we create a barrier to protect you. We deploy a variety of techniques depending on what works best for your situation, including residual powder, gel, and bait.

Outside Treatment: We create a protective barrier around your home using a granular base around the foundation. We then treat windows and doors, as well as under siding, to keep the pests out. We will also place a granular bait in your flower and mulch beds so that bait is taken back to any potential nests, destroying them.

For the past 10+ years we’ve helped protect over 200,000 homes. We are Orange County’s preferred Exterminator and Pest Control Company.
