 Welcome to Elite Pest Management    We want to help you take care of any pests that appear in your home or business and ensure that they do not remain a problem.   The professional service technicians at Elite Pest Management  are extensively trained to search out the hiding places of structural pests, determine what type of pest has invaded your home or business, and make specific suggestions for a program that controls and monitors those pests using control techniques that do not harm human health or our environment.  Household pests are dirty and potentially dangerous. Insects and rodents can cause structural damage to your home or business. They can carry diseases and bacteria. And, they are unpleasant to have around.  But, thanks to modern pest control techniques, they can also be eliminated quickly, safely and with no adverse affect on the environment.  Elite Pest Management also offers Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is a decision-making process that anticipates and prevents pest activity and infestation by combining several strategies to achieve long-term pest control solutions. Components of our IPM program may include education, proper waste management, structural repair, maintenance, biological and mechanical control techniques, and pesticide application.

Insect Control

 Insects such as roaches and ants can be a terrible problem throughout your home, but often go undetected for a long time. Eventually you will have a real infestation on your hands. You may have tried some DIY pest control with products such as boric acid, ant traps, “roach motels”, or any number of commercially available sprays like Raid, Black Flag, or Ortho. Some of these can be effective when the pests are first noticed, such as when you first spot a small hornet’s nest. In other cases, such as fighting ant or roach infestations, all they can do is hold the line. They don’t take the battle back to the pests’ lairs.The average cost to hire an insect control service averages between $75 and $275 depending on the problem. Hiring a professional is the best way to rid your home of pests, not just convince them to stay out of your sight. If you are concerned about the cost of calling in a pro to take care of your pest problem, here are a few things to consider.

  • Some insects are wood-boring. They can damage your house’s structure and cost you tens of thousands of dollars in repair, or can make your home structurally unlivable.
  • Stinging and biting insects can range from merely painful when they attack to literally deadly.
  • Many household pests carry diseases such as salmonella (cockroaches) and Hantavirus (mice and rats).

 

What Type of Pests Do You Have?

The first step to pest control is to identify the type of pest you have. Some pests come around due to other pests, so don’t assume that because you caught one mouse that mice are your only problem. For example, if you have a wolf-spider problem, you may also have a problem with their common prey, cockroaches.The most common pests found in American homes are:

  • Ants (especially the destructive carpenter ant)
  • Bed bugs
  • Cockroaches
  • Beetles
  • Centipedes (if you are allergic to bee stings, you are probably allergic to centipede bites as well)
  • Crickets (more noisy than anything, they can still leave feces)
  • Earwigs
  • Flies
  • Mice
  • Moths
  • Raccoons
  • Rats
  • Silverfish (though not poisonous, they can do severe damage to fabrics, books, and other such materials)
  • Spiders (many spiders eat insects and avoid people, but their webs can trap a lot of dust and allergens)
  • Squirrels
  • Termites
  • Weevils
  • Woodlice

Whether or not these pests are directly poisonous or can simply bring disease through parasites or feces, the fact is that they do not belong in your home. They are dangerous to your health and destructive to your home. In some cases, they can drive up your cost of living. Raccoons, for example, will tear up your crawl space insulation to make their nests. 


These are just some of the reasons to call a professional exterminator. Not only can they save you money, they can possibly save your home and your life! 

Bed Bugs

 Until fairly recently, most people (and even pest control professionals) had never seen a bed bug. Bed bug infestations actually used to be very common in the United States before World War II. But with improvements in hygiene, and especially the widespread use of DDT during the 1940s and ‘50s, the bed bugs all but vanished. The pests persisted, however, in some areas of the world including parts of Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe. Over roughly the past decade, bed bugs have made a dramatic comeback in the U.S.― they’re appearing increasingly in homes, apartments, hotels, health care facilities, dormitories, shelters, schools and public transportation. Other places where bed bugs sometimes occur include movie theaters, laundries, rental furniture, and office buildings. Immigration and international travel have contributed to the resurgence of bed bugs in the U.S. Changes in modern pest control practice, less effective insecticides ― and a decrease in societal vigilance ― are other factors suspected for the recurrence.  Call Elite Pest Management to discuss your Bed Bug needs at 586-294-7055.

Stinging Insect Control

 In order to protect their nests, wasps and yellow jackets will sting, which can be a painful annoyance or can cause a deadly allergic reaction in some.Typically in late spring and summer, we start to get inquiries regarding wasps and other stinging insects, and what can be done to get rid of them and their nests. Wasps, yellow jackets and hornets can be beneficial insects since they prey on other pest insects that destroy your garden flowers and plants. However, in the late summer months they start to look to human food sources, hovering around garbage cans and outdoor food areas. If wasps or yellow jackets feel their nest is in jeopardy, these insects will sting, which can be a painful nuisance for the sting victim, or even cause a person to go into anaphylactic shock should they suffer an allergic reaction to the sting. Because wasp stings can cause severe allergic reactions in people, having them nest in your yard or under your deck or eaves can be very dangerous for you and your family. 


 In order to limit stinging insect activity on your property, there are a few precautions you can take to make your outdoor activities less attractive to wasps, hornets and yellow jackets, and keep yourself and your family safe from their stings:

  • When eating outdoors, only put the food out once everyone is ready to eat, and make certain to put all food away when finished.
  • All trash should be put into a trash can with a tight fitting lid.
  • While eating outdoors, if a food or drink spill occurs, clean it up immediately.
  • Avoid using scented cosmetics and flowery perfumes while spending time outdoors.
  • With fruit bearing trees or bushes in your yard, keep the area around them clear of decaying fruit, as stinging insects may be attracted to the decaying fruits and berries.
  • While doing yard work, avoid wearing loose fitting clothing and always wear gloves, shoes, socks and other clothing items that fully cover your body.
  • If being chased by a wasp or other stinging insect, avoid sudden movements which may threaten the insect and cause it to be more aggressive.

 There are many ways to curb wasp and other stinging insect activity around your home, but it is very dangerous to try to destroy a wasp or hornet nest on your own . The only safe way to fully eliminate wasp nests and the nests of other stinging insects on your property is to contact our professionals at Elite Pest Management, we have the tools and the know-how for safe and effective nest removal.
