Termite / Pest Control

Termite Inspections
Gunter offers termite inspections for property owners or for prospective property owners for the purpose of finding out whether or not termites are present in a building.

Termite Treatments
If termites are discovered, Gunter offers two types of termite remedial treatments. One is a traditional liquid barrier treatment using Termidor, and sometimes combining this treatment with a spot boric acid application and a spot foam application. We are also an authorized Operator of the Sentricon® System in which we place monitoring stations outside the home and uses a bait to eliminate the termites once they enter the stations. This type of treatment is considered more environmentally friendly than the conventional method.

Residential Pest Control
For homes, we recommend our Diamond Annual Service Plan, which consists of four quarterly treatments. On the first visit, we inspect the home inside and out for all types of pests, including spiders, insects and rodents. Then, we perform a treatment according to your specific needs. Treatments usually consist of 1) an attic treatment 2) crack & crevice treatments 3) spot residual treatment in high risk areas or for specific pests  4) spot fogging as needed for spiders or flying insects 5) baiting for rodents as needed 6) granular insecticides next to exterior foundation 7) treating around exterior windows and doors with a long-term residual spray. 8.) removing reachable spider webs and wasp nests. Alternatively, for homes, we offer a “one shot” treatment on the entire interior with a six-month service agreement. Callbacks for the “one shot” service are $35, whereas, all callbacks under the Diamond plan are completely free. We also do lawn care for those homeowners wishing to improve the health and look of their lawn. For more information see Gunter Lawn Service www.gunterlawn.com.

Bedbugs
The common bedbug is an ectoparisite insect (a parasite which lives on the outside of the body of the host) of the family Cimicidae. Bed bugs feed only on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts. Although they have a cryptic behavior and can conceal themselves in tight cracks and crevices, bed bugs are often found in bed parts, such as mattresses and box springs, hence the common name. For more information see http://www.gunterpest.com/?page_id=183. Gunter is an expert on the identification, inspection and treatment of bedbugs. For a quote, send us an email or give us a call.
