Should i set up a regular schedule of pest control inspection / application?

Once you've had even a minor pest problem there is always the possibility of a recurring problem. It is always a good idea to employ preventive application to keep pests away for good. Commercial locations need to have regular applications in order to maintain a clean environment for their employees and customers.


What can i do to maintain a clean, safe, pest free household?
  • Keep kitchen and other potential pest areas clean & free of clutter.
  • Solve moisture problems: leaky faucets and standing water.
  • Seal cracks in foundation or siding with caulk, putty or fine steel wool.
  • Minimize outdoor lighting, yellow light attracts fewer insects.
  • Don't let paper bags and newspapers accumulate. Don't store them next to the refrigerator.
  • Keep trash and recyclables covered. Do not allow garbage to accumulate in your home.
  • Make sure there is no food spillage from you or your pets.
  • Don't store food products on the floor.
  • Prune shrubs, vines and trees to minimize hiding places and moisture accumulation.
  • Check window screens and replace any damaged over the winter.
If pests do appear despite your best efforts, it is highly recommended that you contact a professional pest control company before a minor pest problem gets out of hand.

Why should i hire a professional pest control service like Y2K Bug Inc.?
  • Pest control companies have the knowledge plus years and years of experience in identifying pests.
  • Pest management professionals use well tested pesticides in appropriate amounts that can have long lasting effects against pests, as opposed to pesticides purchased in local stores which can have residual effects that may only last 30 minutes.
  • Using a professional company will allow you to get on a maintenance schedule to prevent any reoccurring pest infestations.
  • Many companies like Y2K Bug Inc. are confident in their work and may offer a guarantee for a certain period of time.
  • The pesticides used by professional pest control companies are regulated for consumer protection. Plus, a company will know the effective amount of pesticide to use.
  • Some companies are licensed to do research with their findings; this research helps to improve pest control treatments.
  • Professional pest control companies must be licensed (based on testing & training). In the state of New York, the N.Y.S. D.E.C. is the regulating body.
  • Professionals know the safest way to treat the problem. Bees and wasps can be dangerous if they're not handled properly.
  • Experienced pest control companies can use their experience to find quick remedies for regular problems that everyday people may overlook, costing more in the long run. Professionals have specialized equipment and knowledge, which comes in handy for pests such as termites.
  • It's not uncommon for pest control companies to offer free quotes and/or home inspections. Take advantage of these rather than playing a guessing game.
