Pest Management Services Continue During COVID-19
Maryland may be on lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19, but that doesn’t mean common spring pests are going to leave you alone. If anything, with fewer cars on the road and people out and about, they’re likely to be more active than usual.
Luckily, there are a number of pest control services that we can still offer without having to worry about breaking the rules of confinement.
Typically, we don’t need to enter a house to take care of a termite issue. We can set up a barrier around your house using our state-of-the-art termite control technology. The only reason we would need to enter your home for termites is if they have built tubes in your walls, basement, or crawlspace, where we have to remove and treat the infected area. Luckily, this is only in circumstances where a termite colony has grown out of control. Most cases don’t require such extreme measures.
Stinging Insect Removal
Most bees, hornets, and wasps like to make their nests in trees, in the eaves of a house, or even under your house’s siding. Some even like to make nests in the ground. No matter where a stinging makes its home, it’s likely not going to be inside yours. That means we can safely remove it while still social distancing.
Fleas and Ticks
Normally, fleas and ticks only come into a house on the body of a pet, which could certainly be a problem for anyone confined to a home. However, if this is a problem you face regularly, then it’s a good idea to have your yard treated before the flea and tick population starts to explode. Treating your property now can save you a lot of headache later this year, something that’ll be crucial once confinement is lifted.
Other Safety Measures We Take
If for any reason we do need to enter your home to take care of a pest, we take many safety measures to protect both you and ourselves. Wearing gloves and masks is a standard part of our job, coronavirus or no. We’ve taken additional precautions of requiring our pest control experts to wear protective clothing, as well as keep masks and gloves on throughout their interactions with customers.
Your safety is a top concern for us, as is your comfort. If you have a pest problem, there’s no need to wait until confinement ends. We can help you today. Call us to get started.
