Organic Hybrid Program

Highly recommended!

The owner himself uses this combination method around his home.

We use organic/natural products inside your home, and in the yard. With this method, a small band 2' up the exterior wall and 2' out from your foundation is applied with a traditional product that has a 60 - 75 day residual effect. This method combines the effectiveness of traditional pest control products in a concentrated area with the comfort of knowing that only organic/natural products have been applied in the living space where your family and pets spend most of their time.
