INSECTS

Protect your business from the threat of cockroaches and other damaging insects.
Like a boss.

Some of nature's littlest pests cause the biggest problems.

Insects come in all sizes. Many species, like ants and bed bugs, are barely visible to the naked eye. Others, including cockroaches and wasps, are big enough to wreak havoc with a single sighting. But no matter how big or small, all pests cause issues. Many spread bacteria, while others bite or sting, causing physical discomfort to you, your employees, and your customers.

Keep your reputation intact, your business thriving, and facilities insect-free with a phone call to the pest solution experts at Sprague.

When the littlest things in life wreak havoc on your world, our insect control service will restore order.

KEY RISKS 

Cockroaches shed their skin, leaving behind feces that contain allergens. In fact, cockroaches are one of the leading causes of childhood asthma. 

Unlike termites that eat wood, carpenter ants and bees bore through it to create nests, causing cosmetic and potentially structural damage to your property.

Education

Let’s face it; bugs happen. But, knowledge is key: Stay informed about how they spread, what to look for, and how to better prevent infestations from forming.

THEY MULTIPLY LIKE CRAZY.

Insects multiply quickly, especially cockroaches. German cockroaches can lay about 40 eggs every 20 days! That means a single pair of cockroaches can turn into 1,600 within a month and a half. The best advice we can give you is: Don't wait to call in the experts; be proactive and get ahead of their rapid breeding cycles.

ONE MAN'S TRASH...

Dumpsters and garbage bins are a magnet for ants, flies, and stinging insects. To keep pests in check, remember to keep lids closed, have the dumpster emptied frequently, and regularly clean the interior and concrete surface beneath the dumpster to eliminate spillage and waste build up that attract pests.

DIY TIPS
 

STAY ON TOP OF REPAIRS.

Don't skimp on basic structural repairs. Caulk all openings or cracks in the foundation of your building. Seal around window and door frames, replace window and ventilation screens, install door sweeps, and change exterior lighting to sodium vapor bulbs to keep your building off-limits to insects.

PUT A LID ON IT.

Store recyclables like glass, cardboard, plastic and compostable food in pest-proof containers. Lids that close tightly will help to keep odors contained and pests out.

BE BEE-SMART.

You know that honey bees and other pollinators are essential to our food supply and the environment. So, if they're buzzing around your business, learn how to protect pollinators before taking measures to eliminate them.
