Have you been looking for a reliable pest control company in Fallbrook, but having little success?

Last month on our blog, we talked about the different levels of toxicity in pest control products (Danger, Warning, and Caution). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates pest control products and categorizes them based on how harmful they are if ingested, or if they get on your skin or in your eyes. Every product used by pest control companies is put in one of three categories, so technicians and consumers can compare “apples to apples” when it comes to toxicity levels. [Read more…]
We’re often asked by new customers and potential customers about the types of pest control products we use.

Almost any real estate agent will tell you, Spring and Summer are the prime times to sell a home in the Temecula Valley (and most places). Getting a house ready to sell involves a lot of small tasks, such as fixing all those little things that don’t bother you (but might put off a potential buyer), adding a fresh coat of paint to the rooms that need it, doing a deep clean, freshening up your landscaping—the list goes on and on.
