While you may love entertaining at your house, ants, rats and cockroaches are not the guests you had in mind. Who would want to come home to fleas? In facts, homeowners do not tolerate pests of any sort. Nonetheless, pests pose a very real threat and are more widespread than you may imagine.
While certain pests like ants and cockroaches may be easily found out, rats and mice being nocturnal are not that simple to spot. If you find partially nibbled food, droppings and burrows, those are sure signs of rat or mice infestation. It’s scary to contemplate what sort of creatures maybe setting up home in your house.

"We like supporting a local company rather than dealing with a national company, who refers customers to call centers not located in the state. The owner of Independent Pest Control, Michael Diaz, is personable and seems to know his bugs, their seasonal cycles, and the most effective (yet safe) chemicals. We've noticed over the last year that we have fewer insects inside the house, and Michael says he can make return visits if necessary before the scheduled quarterly visit. In addition, Michael is low key and hasn't tried to sell us any unnecessary services. He's punctual in scheduling service and comes at the appointed time. We are very satisfied with the work that he completes and would recommend him to others. "

"This family owned local business is awesome! They know how to treat their customers. Chris was so nice on the phone and was able to get me scheduled without a problem after we had a scary spider situation. Mike came and was so friendly and helpful. He explained what he was going to do and also what I could do to help stay bug free. They guarantee all of their work and are committed to providing good service. Their prices are so reasonable and I signed up for the quarterly service. I have already recommended them to two of my friends. "
