  • Ants

How Do Pest Control Services Work?

You have probably heard of pest control services before, but one of the most common questions that we get is how our services work. The specific techniques and products that we use will depend on the type of pest you have and where they are at. However, you can expect the following from your pest control service:

What Does Eco-Friendly Pest Control Services Mean?

The pest control industry has come a long way over the last few years. While pest control once meant spraying harsh chemicals all over your yard, this is no longer the case. At Pest-Ez East, we use eco-friendly products that are safe for your children and pets. We are a family-owned-and-operated business and we won’t use any products that we wouldn’t use at our own property.

Do I Need Pest Control Services Year-Round?

One of the greatest myths about pests is that they go away during the winter months. While you might not notice as much of them as the temperatures drop and snow hits the ground, they are still there. In fact, winter brings a new type of pests. Additionally, pests from outdoors will look for a warm place to live in the winter months, which can be your house. You might not even notice them until spring comes around and they have already reproduced and begin to come out of their nest.

How Do I Know What Type of Pest is in my House?

In some cases, it can be easy to identify pests in your house. Other times, it is not so easy. You might notice damage from pests or rodents, but not actually be able to find them. At Pest-Ez East, we can assist you with evaluating what type of pest is causing damage. We use a variety of techniques and years of experience. We look at things like claw marks, droppings, nest location, and noises.

It is important to understand what type of pests are causing trouble in your house so we know what type of technique to use to get rid of them.

Does it Matter What Pest Control Service I Use?

It does! While many pest control companies claim to get rid of your pests, this does not necessarily mean that they won’t come back. We not only get rid of your pest problem, but we also take the necessary steps to stop them from returning again.

Why Should I Hire a Professional Instead of Doing it Myself?

The problem with DIY pest control is that over-the-counter chemicals and products are harsh and do not permanently remove the problem. Many of these products are designed to get rid of a few bugs initially, but they rarely completely get rid of them. Additionally, it is important to not only get rid of the pests, but to also understand why they are coming in. There must be a food source or an entrance point.

How Do Exterior Pest Control Services Help With Inside?

You might be surprised that your pest technician wants to focus primarily on the exterior of your  house, even if you have pests indoors. That is because an infestation outdoors makes it easier for pests to come indoors. By first focusing on the outdoors, we can drastically reduce the number of pests, meaning you are less likely to find them indoors.


At Pest-Ez East, we know that you have a lot of pest control choices. We are family-owned-and-operated and assist homeowners and commercial owners in Royal Oak, Birmingham, Detroit, Troy, Livonia, and Redford, Michigan. Call us today (248) 820-3057 to make your appointment with a pest expert.

    It went great. No more wasps after 48 hrs. And it took only 15 minutes to apply the treatment. The man that came (I forgot his name but I believe it's a small family business) was very serious and knowledgeable. Also he was the first one to respond and be able to show up after I contacted 4 or 5 different pest exterminators. Aliq, S. *
