Spiders, ants, cockroaches, and centipedes have always been known to hang around people’s homes – and often go unnoticed if someone isn’t paying close attention. In fact, these critters – along with traditional overwintering pests like Asian lady beetles, boxelder bugs, cluster flies, and stink bugs – have been some of our closest co-workers for a long time.
These persistent pests and insects are likely garnering more attention these days, however, as millions of people across Rose Pest Solutions’ service areas in Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio are working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“A centipede or spider someone spots in their home office, bathroom, or kitchen might have gone unnoticed a year ago,” said Mark “Shep” Sheperdigian, board-certified entomologist and vice president of technical services for Rose Pest Solutions. “As people continue to work remotely and spend more time at home, there’s a higher chance of them noticing a pest or insect moving in and making themselves comfortable – which leads to them giving us a call.”
Rose Pest Solutions offers a variety of services to residential clients who want to remove pests that have hunkered down in their homes. The Home Service Program uses science-based techniques to exclude pests safely and effectively from getting into someone’s home in the first place. Technicians are trained to inspect, access, and develop a safe, cost-effective approach that is catered to each client’s home by providing:
The nation’s oldest pest management company also offers an UnBug A Friend program which allows current and new clients to receive a credit of up to $25 toward their next service when they refer a friend or family member to Rose Pest Solutions. A $15 credit is awarded for a single application service, while the $25 credit is available for clients who register for an annual service.
Rose technicians and entomologists remind clients that the most cost-efficient form of pest control is prevention.
“Many pest problems can be reduced or even eliminated if homeowners properly inspect and pest-proof their property,” added Sheperdigian.
