Residential pest control Services
GSC Pest Management residential pest control programs are designed to safely control or prevent pest activity in and around your home—thus protecting the health of you, your family, your pets, and your property. We offer one-time services or flex service programs to control and prevent infestation of ants, fleas, silverfish, bedbugs, mites, mosquitoes, wasps, yellow jackets, cockroaches, pantry pests, rats, mice, and more.
Our Integrated Pest Management strategy is a systematic, long-term approach to pest control that prioritizes prevention, avoidance, monitoring and suppression. We take a holistic approach to pest control by considering mechanical, cultural, and environmental factors that contribute to pest issues. By doing so we hope to reduce the need for chemical applications and achieve long term control over pests and pest related problems.
Some examples of IPM strategies you can implement around you home are:
- Installing a crushed stone border around the foundation
- Pull back trees and shrubs that touch or overhang the house
- Eliminate all wood soil contact
- Ventilate basements/install dehumidifiers
- Reduce clutter in and around the house
- Store firewood off the ground and away from the house
- Check garage door seals for signs of damage or chewing
- Eliminate any standing water
- Clean up around birdfeeders and keep 50 ft from the house
Yard treatments are very effective at controlling mosquitos and ticks that rest in grass and green
growth around a structure and rec areas. Contact us about getting on a monthly mosquito control
program or about spring and fall tick control.
A treatment around the perimeter of your home; 3 ft up the foundation and 3ft out will provide 2-3 months protection against invasive insects, such as ants, spiders, and yellow jackets, and more. Recommended in Spring and Fall for a full year of protection.
When it comes to the control for minor pest activity, a full service
program or treatment of the entire structure may not be necessary or
warranted. Spot treatments are a one time localized application for the
control of a specific pest.
GSC provides both full liquid termiticide treatments and termite baiting systems. Our treatment programs provide a 15 year service agreement in case of termite reemergence with an annual termite inspection.
GSC provides services for the control of commensal rodents, which are
rats and mice. Our programs are designed around the needs
of each specific property in order to meet our customers' needs. Ask us about our rodent flex and seasonal programs.
Wasp and Hornet Control
Wasps and hornets build new nests every spring and use them for one season. The location of the nest
can be problematic when in close proximity to human activity. Depending on species, nests may be in a tree, under an eve, in the ground, or in a wall void. Rely on GSC for safe and effective treatment options.
