3. Pest Control
Proactive Pest Control is a recognized leader you can trust in your home, around your children, or at your work. As a family owned and operated company, we are constantly striving for improvement, which gives you better-trained technicians that care.
Some customers want a one-time solution for a specific pest, and maybe some helpful friendly advice on how to prevent future infestations, while others want an ongoing program that focuses on inspection, prevention, and discovering minor issues before they become major issues. Either way, Proactive is there to help.
Our pest treatment plans provide control of numerous pests, including:
4. Mosquito Reduction Plans
We offer two plans that are sure to make your event memorable, but not for the wrong reasons.
Comprehensive mosquito reduction program:
With our comprehensive mosquito reduction program, a Proactive technician will treat your yard once a month for 7 months, usually starting in March and ending in September. We will spray the foliage around your yard to kill mosquitoes where they live and breed. This plant-friendly process is used on bushes, trees and other surfaces around your home where mosquitoes are most likely to land. The treatments help control roughly 85% of the mosquitoes within the treatment area. Unfortunately, not all of the mosquitoes you encounter on your property originate there. This means that an ongoing treatment regimen is your best option for protecting you and your family. The treatments will also help with fleas and ticks that are carried into your yard on raccoons, squirrels, mice, and other wildlife.
One-time mosquito reduction:
Proactive’s one-time mosquito reduction treatment provides short-term relief from mosquitoes for outdoor gatherings and special events. Our treatment will address both adult mosquitoes, as well as larval / egg mosquitoes, which will drastically reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard. Our technicians will inspect your property to identify potential mosquito breeding areas. The technician will provide a granular treatment to those areas that are best treated with larvacides and will then apply a mist to the perimeter and foundation of your home. This mist will treat mosquito landing sites and will reduce the number of adult mosquitoes. These highly effective, one-time mosquito treatments ensure the comfort of your family and guests.
5. Fire Ant Treatment Control
Fire ants are to Georgia just as sugar is to sweet tea, or as termites are to wood. If you have lived in Georgia for any length of time, you are probably more familiar with fire ants than you ever wanted to be.
Fire ants are very active and aggressive and will sting any intruding animal or human repeatedly. Fire ant stings are painful for most humans, and even fatal to some. Average colonies contain tens of thousands of ants, with the larger colonies containing up to 250,000 worker ants! Fire ant mounds can appear as a few larger mounds, or as numerous smaller mounds scattered throughout the yard. We can perform one or two treatments at peak times of the year or perform preventative monthly fire ant treatments.
6. Flea and Tick Control
We can all pretty much agree on one thing…fleas bite! Other than being a tremendous nuisance, fleas can cause other problems as well. Pets with fleas may develop anemia, tapeworms, or numerous skin related illnesses due to the excessive scratching.
Fleas can be extremely difficult to control and can spread quickly and easily. A single female flea can lay an average of 18 eggs per day, and up to 2,000 eggs in her lifetime. Fleas can jump as much as 7 – 8 inches vertically, and 14 – 16 inches laterally, allowing them to easily spread throughout the home. Fleas are able to reproduce and thrive year-round indoors. They are able to spread more rapidly outdoors but are a little more limited by cold temperatures during certain times of year.
7. Termite Control
Georgia is considered a termite “hot zone” with higher infestation levels than most other areas in the U.S. Unfortunately, most homeowners do not consider termite protection on their homes prior to experiencing an infestation. A termite protection policy is just as important as your homeowner’s policy. In fact, most homeowner’s policies DO NOT include coverage for damage caused by termite activity.
At Proactive Pest Control, we know what a huge and important investment your home or business is. We stay on the cutting-edge of our industry through constant research and testing of products and techniques ensuring our customers get the best results. That’s why we recommend protecting your home or business with a liquid / bait combination treatment. This type of treatment gives your home or business the maximum amount of protection available. Most of the homes or businesses that we treat qualify for our retreat and damage repair warranties, which are also 100% transferable.
8. Lawn Care
Proactive Pest Control is the natural choice when it comes to your residential and commercial lawn needs. We offer services in fertilization, weed control, aeration, over-seeding, and more.
In addition, we can handle any of your pest and termite control needs. Most insects come into homes through various entry points from the outside. Having the knowledge and ability to service both, your lawn needs, as well as your pest needs, gives our customers added benefit, and added peace of mind. We’re a one-stop shop!
9. Fertilization and Weed Control
Fertilization and weed control are essential parts of a successful, comprehensive lawn care plan. Properly fertilizing your lawn will not only promote healthier, thicker, and greener grass, but will also help to prevent weed infestation and disease.
Are weeds taking over your yard? Our fertilization and weed control program consists of 8 treatments, which are performed on your lawn every 4-6 weeks. Through the use of pre-emergent and post-emergent weed controls, we can remove weeds before they have a chance to ruin the health and beauty of your lawn. With continued care, we can keep them out!
10. Aeration and Seeding
Core aeration is one of the most important things you can do for your yard each year. Every living thing needs air, water, and nutrients in order to survive and thrive; your lawn is no exception! That’s why we recommend that you put core aeration at the top of your list. During the spring and early summer months, our lawn experts use a core aerator to remove plugs of soil from your Bermuda and Zoysia lawns. Fescue is generally aerated in the fall.
Over-seeding is the process of adding more seed to existing lawns to fill in the bare spots. Bermuda and Zoysia are self-germinating, which means that they spread all on their own. Fescue is a non-spreading grass, which means it needs to be aerated and over-seeded in the fall. When over-seeding fescue, aeration is essential, because it gives these seeds a safe place to grow and germinate.
11. Pest Control Programs
We have multiple treatment plans to choose from, or we can customize a plan around your specific needs. Here is some information about the different plans:
Perimeter Pro Treatment
Our most popular treatment plan
The perimeter pro treatment plan is a quarterly treatment that offers you maximum protection, but with more flexibility than our other, more traditional plans. We want you to focus on your work, family, and the things that are important to you. Just relax and let us take care of the rest. With our perimeter pro plan, there are no appointments for you to have to remember and try to work into your hectic schedule.
Your first appointment will consist of the following:
After the initial treatment is complete, Proactive Pest Control will return to your home every quarter to reapply the outside barrier. On your quarterly visit, we will exclusively be treating a four to five-foot area around the perimeter of your home. This protective band of product will eliminate problems before they can come inside. This treatment includes protection from various pests such as roaches, ants, spiders, crickets, scorpions, millipedes, rodents, and more. Notification will be left on your front door to let you know your protection has been renewed. If, by chance, you experience a problem on the inside that needs to be addressed, we will gladly provide an inside treatment at your convenience, at no extra charge!
Quarterly Pro Treatment
With our quarterly pro treatment, our technicians will contact you every quarter (3 months) to schedule a time that is convenient for you. This treatment option covers both the inside and outside perimeter of the residence or business, and includes various pests such as roaches, ants, spiders, crickets, scorpions, millipedes, rodents, and more. If, by chance, you experience a problem before your next quarterly treatment, we will promptly schedule a FREE visit for a time that works best for your schedule.
Bi-Monthly Pro Treatment
With our bi-monthly pro treatment, our technicians will contact you every other month to schedule a time that is convenient for you. This treatment option covers both the inside and outside perimeter of the residence or business, and includes various pests such as roaches, ants, spiders, crickets, scorpions, millipedes, rodents, and more. If, by chance, you experience a problem before your next bi-monthly treatment, we will promptly schedule a FREE visit for a time that works best for your schedule.
Monthly Pro Treatment
Our monthly pro treatment plan is recommended for the control of significant flea or German roach infestations because of the rapid breeding cycles of both of these insects. Based on the level of your infestation, our technician may recommend that you start on a monthly treatment plan initially, and then transition you over to our quarterly pro treatment plan.
The monthly pro treatment plan is the most common / popular plan with our commercial and industrial clients.
One Time or As Needed Treatment
At Proactive, we understand that some people are looking for a program in which the customer decides how often a service is provided.
With this treatment option, our technician will only come when the customer calls and sets up an appointment. This is a good program for customers that may only want pest control seasonally, or for the customer that spends the majority of their time out of town. This is also a good plan for controlling the occasional invader.
12. 100% Unconditional Satisfaction Guarantee
Our recurring pest treatment plans come with a 100% unconditional satisfaction guarantee. That means that we aren’t happy unless you’re happy! We will do whatever it takes to get the job done right. If we are not able to do so, we will gladly refund 100% of your last regular service fee.
