Spring is here. And it brings a few new pest threats - termites, black snakes, as well as the usual all-year suspects - mice, and cockroaches stick around. Call us or email us for fast service.
Every spring, once we start seeing some warmer temperatures, termite colonies produce "swarmers" - the winged adults termites that fly away to form their colonies. This is a reminder - termites are nearby. They likely come from underground nest somewhere near.
Our Mission - We Prevent Future Problems
Our mission is not only to remove an acute pest problem, but to prevent any future problems by exclusion, sealing cracks and crevices. We will protect your home so you can feel safe.
Wildlife Alert! Spring is here. This is the time of year when you may start seeing snakes around your home or yard. Black rat snakes are native to the central and eastern United States. While they are harmless and can sometimes help control other pest problems, like rodents, the snakes are scary and can be a real nuisance. We can help. Visit our wildlife control website.
Watch Bed Bugs Die During Heat Treatment
Why do we stress the importance of the heat treatment? Because it works (read The Truth About Chemical Bed Bug Treatment.) We don't want to see people wasting money on all-chemical treatments that just don't work.
Bed Bug Treatment Warranty. No matter how good the treatment is, this is a tough pest.
We will to come back and reinspect if there are signs of problems or re-infestation. If desired, we can bring Canine Bed Bug detection dogs to help access possible re-infestation. See more at allpestk9.com.

Why Heat Treatment?What makes our approach to bed bug control different? We use Heat Treatment. Chemicals, powders, freezing, etc. only work if the bed bugs are directly contacted. That's why most other methods fail. It is virtually impossible to find every single bed bug, not to mention - every single egg. Most chemicals won't kill eggs even if they are contacted. Back before I used heat treatment it would take me up to 3 retreats to get rid of all the bed bugs and these treatments would be spaced out over a month or more.
That's up to a month and a half before my customers could get relief. Even with my steam heater I was not getting a lot of success. The steam could only kill the eggs I could find them and many times the pressure from the steamer would send the bed bugs flying to the other side of the room where they would just walk away.
That's why I am now offering heat treatment. I was getting sick and tired of spending 4 and 5 hours doing chemical treatments only to get a call back from an angry customer. Heat treatment works because the heat penetrates everywhere. Chemicals, powders, freezing, etc. only work when you actually contact the bed bugs and most do NOTHING about the eggs.
It is impossible to find every egg and every bed bug, which is why all other treatment types fail miserably and why it takes so many retreats to even begin to get control. At 125°F all stages of bed bugs and their eggs die in under a minute. I usually achieve 100% eradication in the first heat treatment. Don't take it from me. Just Google bed bug heat treatment and see for yourself. More information on Bed Bug Control.
Bedbugs are exploding on the scene with a vengeance. Worldwide there are 92 described species of bedbugs. The two species most common in Maryland are the common bedbug and the eastern bat bug. Female bedbugs are round while males are more oval shaped. A female bed bug lays 200 to 500 eggs in her life time (about 5 eggs a day). It is now recognized that thermal remediation is the most effective way to kill bed bugs. At 125 degrees Fahrenheit BED BUGS AND THEIR EGGS DIE IN UNDER A MINUTE.
Good Housekeeping in Pest Control
When dealing with pest problems it needs to be understood that your pest control professional can only do so much. Good housekeeping is an essential part of pest control protocol.
Clutter, crumbs, overflowing trash cans, and even taco shells and other carbohydrates not stored in Rubbermaid-like containers will ultimately defeat even the best treatment. Additionally, be careful to check for food that may have fallen under your refrigerator and behind your stove.
Remember, your exterminator is your partner, not your savior. Approach pest control as a team effort and watch your pest problems disappear.

My name is Marc Cohen and I was born here in Baltimore. I attended the University of Maryland and graduated with a BS in zoology and science education. Animals have always been my first love. Upon graduation I taught life science at the Jemicey School in Owings mills. I left Jemicey to start a business called Safari Party. For nearly 14 years I brought live exotic animals to schools and birthday parties. Although it was a great concept and kids loved it, it was not the best way to make a living.
