Recent Pest Control Reviews in Philadelphia

  • Green Pest Solutions

    Since I developed chemical sensitivities, Green Pest Solutions blessedly non or minimally invasive yet guaranteed effective (with free retreat if need) saves me from insects/small pests torments in and outside. Free Termite inspection and non-invasive long-lasting treatment may leave a few light cement plugs in drilled garage/sidewalk border holes. I annually renew the termite guarantee of free repair/treatment (not needed since 2015 effective first treatment and advised prevention). I sched the Quarterly Pest Control per MSN weather forecast by zipcode on a cool dry non-windy a.m. with my window a/c's I wrapped in black plastic bags with masking tape after I clean out windowsills and basement window wells, and pull basement/garage contents on floors away from walls/doors, for the field tech's maximum access. After treatment, I leave for a few hours with secured screen doors/windows open and fans blowing out that minimal odor, drying on BASEMENT borders and around the OUTSIDE of my home, of the insects-customized and govt-regulated spray. The field pros help with traps/finding entrances, and with high web/nests too. Though I no longer need insect service in cold temps, the better value and pay-as-you-go 4x/year pest control contract ensures help if any small mammals. I haven't needed yard pest treatment these honest experts advise on. Green lawn care available too.

    Yellowjackets were nesting under the siding of our house. Greenpest responded promptly and the alternatives - one-term service or annual contract - were clearly explained. The technician arrived exactly as scheduled and he also was very clear and polite. He sprayed the area in question and explained that it might take 7-10 days for the wasps to completely disappear. So far so good. The one-time service is guaranteed for 30 days and he will return within that period as needed.

    Township Pest Control is a one-man business. Owner Mike Snyder is great! I've used him for at least 5 years now. He's prompt, polite and great to deal with. Explains things thoroughly when asked. And if something unexpected pops up, I text him and he always gets back to me within a day. He comes out between regularly scheduled appointments to take care of the problem at no extra charge and is always happy to be of service.

    They installed the Sentra-con ground bait. Jeremy was very professional and let me know that he was there to start the install. If there was any questions he said to let him know. This whole issue started with some home improvements. So glad that Hoffman was able to come out and get this under control.

    They got in touch with me almost instantly after I submitted my request for a quote and arrived that same day. The technician that came out was polite, professional, thorough, and informative. On the day of the appointment the crew arrived on time and again were professional and polite. The work was executed quickly and without fuss and cleaned up thoroughly afterwards.

Pest Control in Philly

Throughout history, pests have been one of the most dangerous threats to Philadelphia. In the beginning they threatened agriculture. Faced with the possibility of losing a harvest, farmers are obligated to combat the problem.

While pesticides are the most common way to protect crops today, their side effects can be dangerous to both the environment and consumers. These dangers are magnified in a city like modern Philly. Fortunately, there are some natural alternatives that can be effective at reducing Philadelphia pest populations.

Here are some common organic pest control techniques. If these fail consider hiring a Philadelphia pest control company that uses natural techniques.

Oil Sprays

Oil sprays are designed to suffocate pests, rather than poison them. In order for them to work, the pests must be directly sprayed.

There are different types of oil sprays for different uses. Dormant oils are used to kill eggs and spores that may be found on bare branches during dormant seasons. For growing plants, lighter oils are used, since they are less damaging to plants. Here are more oils for pest control ideas.

Sticky Traps

Sticky traps are made of a rigid, colored material coated with a sticky substance. Bugs are attracted to the color and trapped when they're unable to free themselves from the sticky material. The traps are most effective when they're hung every 3 to 5 feet (at plant height) and will lose their effectiveness if they're not kept clean.

While sticky traps are available in stores, it’s also possible to make them from scratch. Different colors attract different pests, so you'll need to know what type of pest you're trying to get rid of, if you plan to make your own traps.

Pheromone Traps

Insects emit powerful scents called pheromones to attract the opposite sex. Scientists have been able to duplicate many of them for use in bait traps.

The downside of pheromone traps is that they attract primarily males, which makes them significantly less effective than sticky traps. However, they are useful as a form of early detection to let you which types of pests are moving in. Armed with this knowledge, you can choose a strategy based on which pests you expect to face.

Philly Pest Control Services

Although some pesticide use is still necessary on large farms, organic pest control techniques make it possible to minimize their use in our cities. This helps ensure that the ecosystem's natural balance is maintained. But if these fail consider a Philadelphia pest control company - research and find the best for free with Angie's List.
