Residential Pest Control
Easy Options. Easy Pricing. Quick Response. Great Results.
No property is the same, just like no ant colony, bee colony, or any system of pests. Treatments can only be as effective as to how we approach the concern. Many factors are considered when discussing our approach plan of treatments. Factors like the type of pest you are concerned with, how long activity has been noticed, locations of activity, exterior structural concerns that can be attracting the pest, as well as you, the homeowner.
Take Control offers short term “as needed” services! Some customers do not need ongoing service. If you feel you have caught the pest activity at the beginning stages, we can most likely eradicate the problem with just one treatment. This option includes a piece of mind, 60-day Service Agreement. If you are still experiencing the same pest issue within 60 days from your initial service, we will be happy to come back at no charge for a follow up treatment. After the 60 days, we will offer a discounted rate for any issue you may have the remainder of the year.
If the problem has been going on for two seasons or more, the pest has most likely built a nest or colony that may require more than a single treatment. Rodents, depending on activity level, may not work with this option, so let's discuss our options when you call.
Pests included in this option are: Ants, Spiders, Cockroaches, Centipedes, Millipedes, Earwigs, Waterbugs, Silverfish, Sow Bugs / Pill Bugs, and Scorpions. If you feel you may need a one-time treatment for other pests not included, please call us for an estimate.

Bed Bug Prevention and Treatment
Anyone can get bed bugs. They’re difficult to kill, but we have two proven methods to offer you.
Due to the nature of bed bugs, it can be difficult to control and fully eradicate unless you are aware of how they travel and what to look for. We offer two bed bug treatment options: liquid or heat. Both have different benefits, so it’s up to you, your environment, the current activity level and your budget to determine which would work best for our situation. To provide a proper quote a personal inspection is necessary. Please call our office to find out more.
Bed bugs can live in any home or building, even in tiny cracks of furniture as well as on clothes and upholstered furniture. However, they are more frequently found where people sleep. They can be found in beds such as the mattresses, box springs and bed frames. They also like to live in corners inside dresser drawers, curtains, and inside the spaces of wicker furniture. Because bed bugs can live for months on time without eating they can be found in vacant homes or buildings.
Bed Bugs go through five developmental stages before reaching maturity. A blood meal is required between each stage. As the bed bugs develop, they become larger and darker until reaching adulthood. Under favorable conditions, bed bugs can complete development in one and half – two months. Cool temperatures or limited access to a blood meal may prolong the developmental period. On Average Adults will live for just under a year. The adult females will deposit about 5 eggs per day depositing them in a wide variety of locations. An adult female can lay up to 500 eggs during her lifetime.
Bed bugs are nocturnal insects and lead a very cryptic lifestyle. Bed bugs are often present for weeks or even months before a single bug is ever seen. They live in cracks and crevices associated with all your bedding area. They will disperse away from the bed and can live between or beneath floorboards, carpeting, under moldings, in or under furniture, behind picture frames, inside walls, etc. There is no crack too small for this insect to live and breed. From these secluded cracks and crevices that the bugs emerge during the nighttime to feed on their sleeping host. The bites are typically painless and often go undetected.
With the application of various professional insecticides, it can be very effective in controlling and eradicating the existing activity. Preparation before the treatment is necessary, ensuring we have access to multiple surfaces. Mattresses, bed frames, sofas, dressers, and all areas humans have high contact with are treated. We pay attention to cracks and crevices of furniture, walls and electrical outlets, as that’s where they hide. Due to the life cycle of bed bugs, 2-3 treatments may be necessary, but we’ll have better idea after a thorough inspection to determine activity level.
When you choose to get this service, please closely review the bed bug preparation guide that describes in detail what is required from you prior your service. To ensure the chemicals get into crack and crevice of the furniture, the walls, floorboards, we need to have the room cleaned out and fully ready upon our arrival. Remember, if there is just one area that a bed bug is all to remain unfound, it eliminates the chance of a full elimination.
We use thermal remediation heaters to raise a rooms temperature to 120-135°F (49-57°C). The heat circulates throughout the room ensuring all challenging spots, such as cracks and crevices are reached, and Bed bugs of all life stages are physically unable to survive. Preparing for this treatment option does require some time, but we review all details with you ahead of time.
