Got a pest problem?

We understand how having insects like bed bugs, ticks, and termites can make your home feel a lot less welcoming, maybe even downright unpleasant. Let our experienced pest control professionals solve the problem for you.

Your home is more than just its four walls and furniture. It’s the place where you’ve built memories with family members, where your pets roam free, and your refuge from your hectic life. However, it’s no longer a home when unwanted guests start living in it.

Termites feed on and devastate wood in your house until it’s no longer structurally sound. Ticks and bed bugs can transmit diseases through bites that go unnoticed in your skin.

Ordinary pesticides might provide temporary relief, but they won’t permanently keep these pests away. Worse, insect activity can pose health issues like allergies because of droppings left behind.

If you have pesky pests invading your home, don’t take a DIY approach. Call Greenhow Pest Control and get the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is protected by our expert technicians.

Eliminate Pests in Your Home Once and for All

The key to eliminating pests in your home once and for all is finding out the source of the problem. If you don’t have experience in dealing with pests before, you might not have the knowledge or know-how to locate the pests. That’s okay because we’ve got you covered.

Greenhow’s experts perform integrated pest management by inspecting the interiors of your property for signs of pest infestations, such as damaged wood or droppings. 

Our staff also checks the area outside for overgrown foliage and uncovered garbage: The spoiled food could be attracting pests which brings them closer to your home for them to invade next.

We follow proper sanitation practices like turning off unused taps when not cooking so there is no excessive moisture for bugs to thrive on. Once we discover what’s causing the infestation issues in your home, our methods can help eliminate pests once and for all.

Getting rid of pests is one thing, but to make sure the pesky bugs don’t come back our experts check your property for structural damage that the pests use to get into your home. If we find cracks or mold inside your walls, we can get them fixed as soon as possible to prevent entry.

Finally, our licensed applicators give tips on protecting yourself and your belongings from contamination. Just as much as we want to get these nasty creatures out for good, our main priority at Greenhow Pest Control is to ensure that our customers are safe so they can enjoy their pest-free homes with peace of mind and without any stress.
