Many people think that doing their own pest control is a savings when in actuality it is not-- it can be more expensive, and actually more toxic for your family. The professional pest control industry has undergone quite a revolution in the past 5 years, particularly where "green" chemicals are concerned. The overwhelming majority of chemicals that are applied inside a home are non-toxic for humans, and are actually considered green, which help those who enlist the services of those companies to maintain a healthy environment for their families. Cobra Exterminating Company uses environmentally friendly chemicals wherever possible, as they provide: Pest control in Perry GA, extermination in Cordele, Adel Ga, Fitzgerald GA, Albany GA, and Americus GA. If your home isn't in that geographical area, we probably service your home-- as we also service all of Middle Georgia.
These chemicals, although green, are just as effective as their toxic counterparts at killing all kinds of bugs, including: termites, ants, roaches, cockroaches, millipedes, centipedes, and a host of other pests that might normally invade the home.
In addition to environmentally friendly chemicals, new procedures are also available which assist in pest control. For example, bed bugs are reasonably impervious to the majority of non-toxic chemicals. These bugs, while present prior to the 1950's, were virtually eliminated completely by DDT. DDT however, was outlawed for home use because of its injurious nature to human life, and new strategies were necessary in order to defeat the creatures. Heat treatments are the latest accomplishment in bed bug removal, and are extremely effective at making a home clean and free of these annoying insects.
Termite treatments have changed significantly over the years as well. There was a time we were often drilling through concrete to treat a home, but more often than not, termite stations are used now, or the termidor treatments can be used as well which are extremely effective at eliminating these wood eating insects, which inevitably protects your home.
Have you heard about the "Crazy Ant"? If you haven't, you should at the very least be alerted to this phenom, as it could quite easily be heading your way. This ant is like NOTHING you have ever seen before. If you get infested with this ant, you will absolutely know as these infestations are huge.
The crazy ant is primarily an outdoor ant and an infestation literally can cover a driveway, or an acre of land. They are extrememly hard to kill. Some homeowners just come home at the end of the day only to find their propery covered in these creatures, or their driveway covered, corner to corner. These ants mean business. They're not like fire ant or termite, or normal ant colonies which normally occupy a specific and more localized area, they occupy large areas. For this reason, they can be extremely difficult to kill, just because of the large amount of pesticides that are required to kill an infestation. Often times, again just because of the sheer size of the ant colony, they can easily recurr, and/or move to neighboring or adjacent property.
Detection of bed bugs is actually not that difficult and can be done by the average person who is looking for them. Bed bugs leave a lot of waste behing, for one thing, and if the creases and folds of a mattress are checked, one can often find these waste products, or can find the actual creatures themselves.
If a person travels, we recommend checking these places in the room, as an infestation can be transmitted from one place to another by your luggage. Keeping luggage away from a bed is also helpful, so keep it on a stand or other place in the room where you are certain that bed bugs cannot occupy. As they feast on human blood, places humans do not rest on are often good places to keep luggage in.
Cobra Extermination Company offers bedbug treatments if you find that you have an infestation. We guarantee our work, and we can remove bed bugs from your home using our heat treatments. We serve Cordele GA, Perry Ga, Albany GA, and Fitzgerald GA with excellent pest control work and bed bug removal.
Bed Bugs can move quite simply with heat treatments! Bed Bugs can spread to cloth very simply and can easily be moved to other places from there, including bedding and furniture. The reproduction cycle is markedly sped up when they receive sustenance from blood, which is derived from biting humans. (we know, gross!)
In many cases people do not know they have an infestation until the infestation is quite severe, so we recommend using Thermal Remediation Electric units powered by our generators outside the structure. This raises the temperature in the room or structure to a temperature that the bed bugs cannot survive in. An electrical cord is usually run through a window and providing all the power necessary for the heating units. Maximum temperature is achieved 1-2 hours into the procedure and reaches a temperature of 120 degrees or more.
This temperature in the structure or home is then kept there for approx, 4 hours, which kills the beg bugs. We monitor all treatments through a wireless monitoring system and we are able to see the exact temperatures from exterior location throughout the structure or facility. We have had great success with heat treatments on bed bugs in the Cordele and Middle GA area.
