As pest control experts and exterminators in Houston TX, our philosophy is pretty simple: We treat each customer’s house or business as if were our own. We are a service company, and we are here to exceed all customer expectations.
Our exterminators in the greater Houston and Galveston, TX areas offer green pest management using EcoSmart products, as well as conventional treatment for commercial and residential pests and termite control. Our Integrated Pest Management specialists focus on non-chemical methods to control pests. Below are some of the services in which we specialize.
Formosan termites are bad news and can cause serious damage. For information on Formosan termites, the following link is very informative: https://urbanentomology.tamu.edu/urban-pests/termites/formosan. We offer conventional liquid barrier treatments, as well as baiting systems. Your Bug Man can thoroughly explain the advantages of both and help you discover which will work best in your situation.
Mosquito control is accomplished by using Integrated Mosquito Management, reaching, treating, and eliminating them with larvacides before they are able to become the adult that attacks you. The mosquito misting systems we install on your home or business are almost invisible and greatly reduce the biting insect population without harming pets or humans. Water misting systems can also be installed around homes and recreation areas to cool down your favorite outside zones when temperatures are hot. We also treat areas with standing water and water features – ponds, lakes, rivers, streams, etc., to kill mosquito larvae before they hatch, also greatly reducing the mosquito population. Spraying and fogging only have about 1% effectiveness and the comprehensive program we offer is recommended by the American Mosquito Control Association. We are proud members of this great organization.
Do you have bats in your belfry, bees in your bonnet, or rats in the attic? We will not only seal up those entry points where unwanted rodents/pests enter your home or commercial building, but we can also make repairs when needed. Call us today for more information about our pest control and wildlife removal and exclusion services.

COMMERCIAL PEST MANAGEMENT
We focus on IPM standards (Integrated Pest Management) that are about exposing your customers and staff to least amount of chemical used to control pests. We strictly adhere to all requirements of the Texas Department of Agriculture and maintain a log book including state licenses, chemical labels, IPM plan, posting of treatment notices, and retaining at least two years worth of past service tickets.
Many people today are plagued with chemical allergies and sensitivities and are therefore concerned about the long-term effects of chemicals on our environment. We specialize in green pest management for all types of commercial accounts, including IPM for school districts and nursing homes, using our EcoSmart products.
