Perimeter Treatment

An insecticide perimeter treatment serves as a first line of defense around your home, stopping pests before they enter. This type of treatment offers one of the best insecticide defenses against outdoor pests that migrate inside for winter, including boxelder bugs, stink bugs, and Asian lady beetles. Perimeter treatments form a barrier on exterior surfaces – house, exposed foundation, soil and nearby plant material. Typically a perimeter treatment blankets a 3-foot-wide zone in two directions: from the ground up the house wall and from the house wall outward. For fall treatments, timing is critical. Get the perimeter treatment in place before insects start gathering in large numbers. Insects migrate toward winter shelter based on changes in temperature and day length. Contact your local extension office to learn approximate times you can expect insect invasions. Insecticides used for perimeter treatments come in two forms: liquid or granule. Which one you use depends on your own preference, although liquid forms offer the flexibility to treat vertical and hard surfaces.

Residual

Residual spraying or RS is the process of spraying the inside and outside of a building, structure, or a landscape and its components with liquid pesticide, herbicide, termiticide, larvacide, etc. A dilute solution of insecticide is sprayed on the inside (Internal Residual Spray)  and outside (External Residual Spray) structures. Insects are killed or repelled by the residual spray. Several pesticides have historically been used for IRS, the first and most well-known being DDT.

The three components of residual treatment are:

  1. Residual Spot Treatment
  2. Residual Crack and Crevice Treatment
  3. Residual Broadcast Treatment 

Dust

Dusting means using insecticide and rodenticide in a concentrated powder form. Insecticide dusts are important tools in the control or elimination of ants, spiders, carpenter ants, cockroaches, ticks, bed bugs, lady bugs (Asian Lady Beetles), silverfish and other household arthropod pests. Most of us are somewhat familiar with dusts used to kill bugs but are not quite sure when or how these products are to be used. Generally, insecticides in dust formulation are applied to areas where pests are known to hide and migrate - especially areas where insecticide sprays do not reach or cannot be safely applied. When used correctly, dusts will give a much longer pest killing residual than liquids. Many pesticide labels use the term "crack and crevice" or other similar term (attics, crawls spaces, wall voids, etc.) when referring to where an insecticide can be used. Putting it plainly, a crack, crevice or void is an area where certain household pests are most likely to travel, hide, breed or forage for food, but where people and pets are least likely to come into contact with pest control materials - sprays, dusts, baits, aerosols, etc.. By treating these out of the way areas we are placing products where they are needed the most and also placing them in areas that are safe for our families, pets or even wildlife. Besides the safety of where dusts are applied (out of reach of people and pets) there are other advantages to using insecticides that you purchase in dust formulations. Dusts are ready to use, meaning that no special mixing is required to prepare the product for application. The only exception to this is when you want to mix two or more types of dusts for longer residual, faster knock down, to change the density of dusts or when you suspect that your targeted pest might have a resistance or tolerance to a particular class of insecticide. In certain pest control jobs, treating wall voids or cracks and crevices is more important than spraying a liquid insecticide on baseboards and carpets. Asian Lady Beetles (ladybugs that are not considered good guys), cluster flies, young ticks, bed bugs are just a few of the indoor pests that are very difficult to exterminate (or prevent) if dusting is not incorporated into your pest management plant. Lady beetles and cluster flies will hibernate or over winter in wall voids and (in the case of cluster fly infestations) attics. Applying only a spray on the exterior surfaces of your home will not always give you the results you seek with these types of pests. You must attack them where they hide. Ticks are notorious for reacting to pesticide sprays, running upwards (away from the chemical spray) and hiding in dark areas such as your wall voids or even underneath pet bedding. Many pest control technicians have discovered that skipping the dust application to these areas means that their customer calls them back to complain of poor pest control service. If you have seen more than a few ticks indoors or if you have been unsuccessful in eliminating an indoor tick infestation, it is probably because you skipped your dust application. In many cases, large numbers of ants, spiders, roaches, silverfish or other bugs are seen inhabiting spaces beneath the home or in the attic areas. When this happens it is often necessary to dust these larger voids. Moreover, certain dust such as the tracking powder (ZP, DITRAC, ROZOL) is the most effective weapon to control rodents, but must be used with great caution and only by a Licensed and Certified Pesticide Applicator.

Baiting

Baits are categorized into insecticide bait, termiticide, and rodenticide bait. Bait is a product manufactured with food or other materials that pest and vermin consume. They often contain an active ingredient that helps control the pests. On the other hand, some baits do not contain any active ingredient and are solely used for monitoring pest activity and harborage sites.

Flushing and Fogging

Fogging is basically the use of oil based pyrethrum concentrated solution in fogging machine. Cold foggers are used in indoor application because cold fogger are safer and cleaner. The most economical material to use in a cold fogger is a pyrethrin concentrate. (You can also add an ounce or two of pyrethrin concentrate to your Residual Pesticide and Insect Growth Regulators for a quick knock-down of bugs.) Fogging is most effective pest control procedure to extract pest hiding in deep structural cavities and and provide excellent results instantaneously. Thermal foggers are used in large industrial application evenly over an extensive area. Pyrethrins and Pyrethroids are insecticides included in over 3,500 registered products, many of which are used widely in and around households, including on pets, in mosquito control, and in agriculture. The use of pyrethrins and pyrethroids has increased during the past decade with the declining use of organophosphate pesticides, which are more acutely toxic to birds and mammals than the pyrethroids. This change to less acutely toxic pesticides, while generally beneficial, has introduced certain new issues. For example, residential uses of pyrethrins and pyrethroids may result in urban runoff, potentially exposing aquatic life to harmful levels in water and sediment. Pyrethrins are botanical insecticides derived from chrysanthemum flowers most commonly found in Australia and Africa. They work by altering nerve function, which causes paralysis in target insect pests, eventually resulting in death. Pyrethroids are synthetic chemical insecticides whose chemical structures are adapted from the chemical structures of the pyrethrins and act in a similar manner to pyrethrins. Pyrethroids are modified to increase their stability in sunlight. Most pyrethrins and some pyrethroid products are formulated with synergists, such as piperonyl butoxide and MGK-264, to enhance the pesticidal properties of the product. These synergists have no pesticidal effects of their own but enhance the effectiveness of other chemicals.

  • Pyrethrins, a single pesticide active ingredient, contain six components that have insecticidal activity: pyrethrin 1, pyrethrin 2, cinerin 1, cinerin 2, jasmolin 1, and jasmolin 2
  • Pyrethroids include: Allethrin stereoisomers, Bifenthrin, Beta-Cyfluthrin, Cyfluthrin, Cypermethrin, Cyphenothrin, Deltamethrin, Esfenvalerate, Fenpropathrin, Tau-Fluvalinate, Lambda-Cyhalothrin, Gamma Cyhalothrin, Imiprothrin, 1RS cis-Permethrin, Permethrin, Prallethrin, Resmethrin, Sumithrin (d-phenothrin), Tefluthrin, Tetramethrin, Tralomethrin, and Zeta-Cypermethrin
  • Synergists include: MGK-264 and Piperonyl butoxide

Steaming

Steaming is the latest option is the latest option for the control and elimination of Bed Bugs. Bed bugs may be resilient, but one thing they cannot withstand is the high heat of a steamer. Steamers are an excellent, chemical-free way to treat for bed bugs and other pests such as dust mites. Reaching upwards of 250ºF or 121ºC, steamers will kill any bed bug or bed bug eggs on contact, and thoroughly clean the infested area. When treating an area for bed bugs, Pest Terminators, Inc. Prep and Treatment guidelines and instructions must be followed to ensure that all bed bugs are eradicated in a safe manner. Modern technologically advanced Bed Bug Steamer to kill bed bugs and get rid of bed bugs in your home is environmentally safe and highly effective. Bed bugs cannot tolerate heat above 120 degrees, and a bed bug steamer will kill bed bugs on contact. Even better, steam can penetrate into hard to reach areas and through the cloth wrappers of mattresses and box springs to kill bed bugs hiding inside as well. The advantages of a bed bug steamer:

  • Environmentally friendly and “green” option for killing bed bugs
  • Steam penetrates and kills bed bugs you cannot see.  This includes bed bugs in cracks and crevices, inside of mattresses and box springs, through carpet, and in hard to access areas of your furniture.
  • Steam is a “touch less” method of killing bed bugs and will help keep from damaging your furniture.   Be aware though, that steam can remove varnish from furniture if you aren’t careful.
  • Steam allows you to treat your bed, bed sheets, curtains, carpet and other chemical absorbing items without having to use chemicals.
  • A bed bug steamer will not only kill bed bugs, but their eggs as well.
  • Steam is highly effective at killing bed bugs when used in conjunction with other treatment methods such as residual, fogging, and dusting

Vacuuming

Vacuuming is an environmentally responsible approach to modern pest challenges. Vacuuming is advantageous because it is a non-toxic method for removing pests from your home and office. Vacuuming is the secret to removing and breaking the ongoing cycle of spider and other insect populations in your home and office. Vacuum your house regularly and thoroughly to make bugs unwelcome. If there's nothing to eat, they won't come in and won't multiply if they occasionally do come in. Keep food in sealed containers like the refrigerator and jars, vacuum dust from carpets, corners and shelves, and vacuum or mop hard floors. Clean floors under items where dirt may settle, including sinks, refrigerators, and especially stoves.

  • Immediately impacts the cockroach population.
  • Reduces the reproductive potential of the population.
  • Removes both the susceptible and insecticide-resistant cockroaches.
  • Can be accomplished without vacating the premises.
  • Reduces the number of dead or dying cockroaches the [residents] will see.
  • Reduces the level of allergens present when a HEPA filter is used on the vacuum. 

Freezing

The Cryonite Freezing System is the the method based on the concept that an extremely cold controlled blast of a extremely low temperature carbon dioxide snow approximate temperature of negative 108 degrees below zero, crystallizes insects. The process called: Homogenous Nucleation. Homogeneous Nucleation kills the insect instantly before they can put their bodies into any protective hibernating or homeostasis state. CRYONITE freezing is a great procedure because it doesn’t add any CO2 into the atmosphere, the CO2 used is reclaimed CO2. CRYONITE freezing do not leaves any residue, not even water from the freezing. It is a non toxic and non chemical procedure. It is sub freezing technique that freezes the the exoskeleton of the insect with extremely cold CO2. Therefore, an environmentally responsible approach to modern pest control operation for the elimination of Bed Bug and Cockroach.

Thermal Treatment

Chemical pesticides, such as Methyl Bromide and other toxic fumigants are potentially harmful to people, pets and our environment. Worse yet, chemical pesticides are losing their effectiveness as pests, including bedbugs, are building up resistance to the most commonly used treatments. But there is a better, safer, more effective way to eliminate pests completely. The use of heat in pest eradication is not a new concept. Since the early 1900's, heat has been used as an effective strategy to kill all life stages of insects from eggs to adults. Today, as other chemicals become less appealing, heat treatments are gaining popularity and recognition as a viable and safe alternative to chemicals and fumigants. The use of heat involves safely raising the temperatures in an infested area to a level that is lethal to all insects (approximately above 120 degree F). Heat treatment is a proven non-chemical method of eradicating all life stages of insects from eggs, larva to adults. Unlike many chemical pesticides such as Methyl Bromide, heat treatments will penetrate and force heat into all of the harborage and kill insects where they reside. Heat treatment is used for the sterilization and / or devitalization of both imported and exported goods without the use of toxic gases. It is an environmentally friendly solution that is safe and harmless to your goods and products. Goods suitable for this treatment include bird seeds, grains, herbs, bark products, Bali grass thatching, water hyacinth and moss products. With export packaging guidelines that came into effect in early to mid-2004, exporters have the option for fumigation, heat treatment or kiln drying.

Wildlife Trapping

Wildlife Inspection is normally a target specific situation. Your Technician will inspect your property for your specific target pest as well as other non-target pest situations. This inspection will allow us to find a solution that will best fit your expectations. Moreover, appropriate traps will be installed in and around your property to catch and dispose any kind wild animal from your property such as raccoons, skunks, squirrel, fox, coyote, etc.

Vermin Trapping

Vermin trapping is the use of mechanical traps to catch insect and rodent within and outside a structural facility. Vermin trapping includes such the glue traps, snap traps, tin cat traps, ketch all traps, cages, etc.

Exclusion and Pest Proofing

Pest Proofing and Pest Exclusion is an essential part of modern commercial and residential pest management plan. Over application of pesticide and its harmful effect on the environment must be avoided at any cost. Responsible businesses are choosing to apply the principles of Green Pest Management practices. Integrated Pest Management is a more holistic and healthy form commercial pest control that works with the environment, biology and natural life cycle of pests to help curb populations. One of the most important aspects of this approach to commercial pest management is known as exclusion. Pest exclusion is a preventative tactic that involves sealing up areas of your building where pests are likely to enter – essentially, denying pests access to the facility in the first place. Exclusion is essentially a facility’s first line of defense against a pest invasion. The idea behind this integrated pest management tactic is that it’s much easier (and safer for the environment) to simply keep pests out than to root out an infestation once it takes hold. Unfortunately, because insects and rodents are small and sneaky, many commercial buildings are rife with cracks, holes and other entry points that make ideal doorways for pests. The first thing a quality provider of commercial pest control services will do is thoroughly inspect the building for vulnerable areas and fortify them wherever possible. The key to pest exclusion for large buildings – such as offices, schools, hospitals, restaurants, etc. – is sealing and securing all possible points of entry into the building. This includes cracks in the foundation, improperly sealed vents, drain pipes, garbage shoots and other points of entry that are not properly sealed off. Of course, some parts of the building must remain ventilated and open to some extent; the point is to make sure that there are no unnecessary open entry points. Other exclusion tactics recommended by integrated pest management experts involve keeping any organic matter away from the exterior of the building – including trash, compost, mulch and even fallen leaves – as these have a tendency to attract pests. Finally, removing inviting food, water, nesting and breeding sources from the inside of the building will help to create inhospitable conditions for pests. Implementing a pest exclusion plan can be a huge undertaking, especially for a large facility, therefore, we are here to help you in the best possible way with expert advice and solutions.

Granular and Other Method of Pesticide Application

Granular Application Of Pesticide

Some pesticides are applied as granules that have been impregnated with a fixed amount of pesticide to eliminate the need for mixing. When used for row crops, most granular pesticides are applied with either a band applicator or a broadcast applicator. Because some granule applicators are sensitive to speed, it is important to maintain a uniform travel speed for consistent performance. Wind can greatly affect the distribution from granule applicators. Adjust distributors to minimize the effects of wind. To reduce the effects of moisture on the metering of granules, empty the granule hoppers every day.

Granule application rates are affected by the following variables:

  • Orifice size (feeder-gate setting)
  • Ground speed
  • Agitator speed
  • Size and nature of granules
  • Roughness of the ground
  • Humidity
  • Temperature

 

Other Methods of Pesticide Application

Different application methods are appropriate for different crop and pest types, but the method of application should always be consistent with the label directions. Application methods include:

  1. Band application, applying a pesticide in parallel strips or bands, such as between rows of crops rather than uniformly over the entire field.
  2. Basal application directs herbicides to the lower portions of brush or small trees to control vegetation.
  3. Broadcast application is the uniform application of a pesticide to an entire area or field.
  4. Crack and crevice application is the placement of small amounts of pesticide into cracks and crevices in buildings, such as along baseboards and in cabinets, where insects or other pests commonly hide or enter a structure.
  5. Directed-spray application specifically targets the pests to minimize pesticide contact with non-target plants and animals.
  6. Foliar application directs pesticide to the leafy portions of a plant.
  7. Rope-wick or wiper treatments release pesticides onto a device that is wiped onto weeds taller than the crop, or wiped selectively onto individual weeds in an ornamental planting bed.
  8. Soil application places pesticide directly on or in the soil rather than on a growing plant.
  9. Soil incorporation is the use of tillage, rainfall, or irrigation equipment to move the pesticide into the soil.
  10. Soil injection is the application of a pesticide under pressure beneath the soil surface.
  11. Space treatment is the application of a pesticide in an enclosed area. w Spot treatment is the application of a pesticide to small, distinct areas.
  12. Tree injection is the application of pesticides under the bark of trees.
