First Step In Pest Control - The Inspection!

The Inspection
If you have seen evidence of a pest or want help protecting your office or home against unwanted guests, your Guardian Pest Control Specialist will come and inspect your office or home. On the first visit, our Specialist will conduct a thorough inspection of your property, and if necessary, bring in state-of-the-art equipment, such as moisture meters, telescoping cameras, and UV lights, to help identify high risk areas such as entry points, leaks, and cracks.

You can expect your first inspection to takes about 45 minutes to an hour, for regular visits 20 to 30 minutes. At the end of the inspection, we’ll complete a Guardian Office/Home Inspection Report that outlines your problems and recommends a plan tailored to your office or home.
About Guardian Pest Control
Successful pest control doesn’t just start with science – it continues day in and day out to help ensure your property is protected from pests and the damage they can do. Every Guardian Pest Control Specialist is trained to assess your building’s unique characteristics, then implement and monitor an Integrated Pest Management plan based in science…created just for you.

What is Integrated Pest Management? Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest control that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in conjunction with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment. #PestControl #GuardianGreen #GuardianPestControl #GuardianSince1918

Lighting & Electric - Guardian Service

Electrical Safety

In the United States, on average 400 people die from electrocution and 4,400 are injured each year. Most of these deaths and injuries can be prevented. May is National Electric Safety Month, so we want to take this opportunity to remind you of 10 ways to avoid electrical safety hazards:
  1. Never handle electric appliances with wet hands. Never use electric appliances in wet or damp conditions unless the appliances are specifically rated for this use.
  2. Protect electric outlets close to sources of water. Electric outlets in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and garages should be ground fault circuit interrupting (GFCI) outlets to reduce the chance of electric shock. Arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCI) can also be added to enhance protection from fires.
  3. Secure electric sockets around small children. Toddlers can insert objects into electric outlets that are not covered properly. Outlets within reach should be protected with plastic closures that fit snugly and cannot easily be removed.
  4. Eliminate defective or worn electric wires. Inspect all appliances and extension cords regularly to ensure that they are in good condition. Cords should not be loose or frayed and should have a grounding prong intact if so equipped.
  5. Never work on electric equipment with the power on. When doing work on electric equipment, ensure that all sources of electricity to the appliance are turned off. Be sure to shut off the correct breaker. A simple voltage tester can be purchased for home use at a local electrical supply store.
  6. Never pour water on an electric fire. Water acts as a conductor and can cause shock. Use a fire extinguisher that is rated as Class C for use on electric fires.
  7. Leave wiring to professionals. Proper electric wiring is critical and must meet codes and standards of safety. Use a licensed professional who can do the job safely and correctly.
  8. Watch for overheating bulbs and lights. Lights and bulbs can be heat sources and must be kept away from flammable materials like upholstery, drapes, bedding and cribs. Never exceed the maximum wattage specified for the device.
  9. Don’t misuse extension cords. Never use extension cords as a permanent substitute for additional outlets. Also, don’t overload extension cords and block off any unused outlets. Discard them if they have worn out wires or loose connections.
  10. Check for covered cords and wires. Electric wires and cords radiate heat. Never cover wires with rugs or furniture. They could overheat and start a fire.
To learn more about potential electrical hazards and how to use electricity safely, contact the Electrical Safety Foundation International at esfi.org.

Oh No...Bed Bugs!

How to Find Bed Bugs

If you have an infestation, it is best to find it early, before the infestation becomes established or spreads. Treating a minor infestation, while an inconvenience, is far less costly and easier than treating the same infestation after it becomes more widespread.


 However, low-level infestations are also much more challenging to find and correctly identify. Other insects, such as carpet beetles, can be easily mistaken for bed bugs. If you misidentify a bed bug infestation, it gives the bugs more time to spread to other areas of the house or hitchhike a ride to someone else's house to start a new infestation. Learn about identifying bed bugs.

Bites on the skin are a poor indicator of a bed bug infestation. Bed bug bites can look like bites from other insects (such as mosquitoes or chiggers), rashes (such as eczema or fungal infections), or even hives. Some people do not react to bed bug bites at all.
