Smart Pest Solutions offers bed bug treatments to residential and commercial accounts. Bed bug services may take several treatments and all estimates are free.

If homeowners suspect bed bug activity they should address the problem immediately to keep the problem from escalating to the whole home. Spraying and dusting with chemical is done as well as educating the customer on what they can do. Homeowners should wash and dry all clothing and materials that can be put in the wash on high heat. Homes need to be clean and free of clutter to receive a thorough treatment. Smart Pest will not clean up clutter and clothes before treating. Fogging is sometimes necessary but not recommended in apartments and hotels
Smart Pest Solutions offers bat services to homes and structures. Bat evictions can be difficult to do correctly and require thorough attention to the home. Bat evictions consist of locating all areas where bats are entering the home or roof and sealing all cracks or holes. Bats only need ¼ of an inch to fit into an opening so all cracks must be sealed. Eviction valves are installed on the main entry and exit holes so bats can fly out but cant get back in. Usually, a week of waiting is required after installing valves to make sure bats have flown out. If necessary, attics can be cleaned of bat droppings when bats have left the house. All bat services are free estimates. Three year warranties are included in the contracts and are valid if the home is sold. Bat infestations must be disclosed to any new home buyers.
Smart Pest Solutions offers mole control to yards and areas around the structure. Mole contracts provide coverage for one year and treatments are performed as needed. Bait is used in the mole runs to kill the pests. Treatments are generally needed continually for the entire year. Prices are determined by the amount of activity and free estimates are available. Moles can be a never ending problem especially in timber areas and high grass. Moles feed on night crawlers and many gimmicky products bought at stores are completely useless. Some traps can be effective but are also difficult to set correctly and require constant checking and resetting
Smart Pest Solutions offers nuisance wildlife trapping services. Some animals covered include: raccoons, opossums, squirrels, groundhogs, and ground squirrels. All animals are live trapped and relocated to more suitable areas except ground squirrels. Traps are checked on a daily basis and if traps cannot be checked every 24 hours they are closed.
