Pest+ Prevention

Control Carpenter Ants and Little Black Ants in Your Connecticut Home

Our Pest+ Prevention program is derived from our former “Quarterly” service. We felt that the new name better suits the scope of services provided with this plan, as well as minimizes confusion regarding the timing and frequency of your appointments.


Pest+ Prevention is a maintenance program designed to treat current infestations as well as prevent ant colonies from re-establishing nests on the interior of the structure after an initial service has been completed. The program consists of a minimum of 2 exterior treatments throughout the year. For customers on our recurring annual plan, interior treatments are provided at no additional charge on an as-needed basis. This allows us to minimize the use of pesticides on the interiors of structures and helps prevent the over-use of chemicals.

Crawling Insect Control in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts

The chemicals we use to exterminate and prevent ants also work to repel a number of other nuisance insects including but not limited to: spiders, silverfish, house flies, centipedes, and earwigs. See a full list of covered pests below. These occasional invaders are also covered under our Pest+ Prevention program, but may require additional indoor treatments to effectively repel them. This is because your treatment plan is specifically targeted towards ants, and other pests may require us to apply the treatment in other targeted areas. To schedule an indoor treatment at no additional cost, just give us a call and let us know where you are seeing activity so we can spot-treat where necessary!

The best approach to pest prevention is to practice good sanitation, regularly inspect and maintain the property, eliminate potential entry points for pests, and use non-toxic pest control methods whenever possible.

The frequency of pest control depends on various factors such as the severity of the pest problem, the type of property, and the location. It is recommended to have regular pest inspections and treatments at least every six months.

It is recommended to wait at least 24 hours after pest control treatment before cleaning the treated areas. However, it is best to follow the specific instructions provided by the pest control professional.

Effective pest control is important to prevent the spread of diseases carried by pests, protect property from damage, and maintain a safe and healthy environment.

Preventing pests and rodents is important to avoid property damage, prevent the spread of diseases, and maintain a clean and safe environment for humans and animals.

If pests and rodents are not controlled, they can cause property damage, spread diseases, contaminate food sources, and even harm humans and animals.

In the service industry, it is important to maintain proper sanitation and hygiene practices, regularly inspect the property for signs of pests, use non-toxic pest control methods, and seek professional pest control services when needed.

Identifying pests according to their use is important to determine the appropriate pest control methods and to prevent the spread of diseases or damage to crops or property.

Controlling pests in agriculture is important to protect crops from damage, prevent the spread of diseases, and maintain food safety and security.

An integrated pest management approach to pest control emphasizes the use of multiple pest control methods, including non-chemical options, to manage pest problems in a sustainable and effective manner.

Conditions that may increase pest problems include warm temperatures, high humidity, and lack of sanitation, while conditions such as proper sanitation, regular cleaning, and pest-proofing can decrease pest problems.

The most effective pest management strategy varies depending on the specific pest problem, but an integrated pest management approach that combines non-toxic options with targeted pesticide use is often the most effective.

The best way to develop an effective integrated pest management plan is to conduct a thorough assessment of the property, identify the pests and their habitats, determine the most appropriate pest control methods, and regularly monitor and evaluate the success of the plan.
