St. Charles Pest Control Services
For much of its history, the former capital of Missouri was an important jumping-off point in the push westward. In fact, when Lewis and Clark set out on their voyage of discovery in 1803, St. Charles was considered the last outpost of civilization.
The town has changed quite a bit over the last two hundred years. In fact, St. Charles has changed markedly since the 1970s. That’s when development of the so-called Golden Triangle (the area bordered by bordered by Interstate 70, Route 94, and Interstate 64) began in earnest.
As new homes and businesses emerged, rodents and other outdoor pests had to find new homes. Unfortunately for many area residents, these new homes were local homes and businesses. Infestations significantly reduce a family’s quality of life and also may threaten the physical and emotional health of many people. As for most businesses, even a few bugs or rodents could cause a crippling loss of business goodwill.

Residential Pest Control Services in St. Charles, MO
Bugs and rodents might be inside the house, but the problem is usually not inside the house. To be sure, inside product treatments can reduce the pests which are there and deter new ones from taking their place. But that’s only part of the solution.
Generally, pests come from the outside to the inside. For example, many insects use tree branches which extend to exterior walls to enter your house. Therefore, our technicians often spend more time treating the outside than the inside. Typically, such preventative measures ultimately bear much fruit.
Speaking of preventative measures, we usually recommend quarterly treatments. As a rule, bugs are rather easy to deter and difficult to eradicate. So, we try to treat the front end of the problem as opposed to the back end.
Statistically, St. Charles is one of the largest cities in Missouri. But it is still basically a bedroom community in many respects. So, weekend getaways are very common for many families. Once again due to some changes in the 1970s, a hotel stay often means a subsequent bed bug infestation.
Before the EPA banned DDT in 1972, hotel owners sprayed copious amounts of this powerful chemical to kill bed bugs and other pests. Unfortunately, DDT sometimes killed people as well, or at least made them very sick, which is why the government banned it. Other treatments were and are available, but they are expensive and time-consuming. So, many hotel owners choose to risk a bed bug infestation. Your family bears the brunt of that risk.
Bed bugs are usually not physically harmful. But from a psychological standpoint, they are extremely harmful, especially to children. We do more than eradicate these pests. We give families the tools and tips they need to keep these bugs from hitching unwanted rides in their luggage.
New development also displaced a significant number of ants. These insects are usually not harmful to people or property. However, an infestation could mean hundreds or even thousands of ants. These creatures are unsightly and unhealthy. They communicate by leaving invisible chemical trails for other ants to follow.
If you see an isolated ant here and there, they are probably scouts. When they find food, which could be anything that contains even a minuscule amount of sugar, scouts summon the remainder of the colony.
These colonies are nearly always outdoors. Ants usually do not need your home for shelter. They only come inside to get food. So, our technicians heavily concentrate on a home’s exterior. If we eradicate most of the colony and make it difficult for ants to get in your house, the survivors often relocate.
