A: Our two most popular programs are Envirosafe365 and Ecosafe60. The Envirosafe 365 approach treats both the inside and outside of your house, attacking the insects when they attempt to break into your home as well as if they do gain access. We treat all accessible outlets and switch plates in every room including the garage. We caulk openings inside and outside the house and apply a barrier to the exterior around the doors, windows and foundation. Every three months a technician will return to apply a fresh barrier to minimize insect problems. The Ecosafe60 program has become very popular since the advent of two new ant species to south Florida, the white footed ant and the pheidole ant. With this service, we treat the house every two months, applying an exterior barrier to stop pests. It has been proven to work well, resulting in good control around the house. Also, the product does not completely break down in two months, giving you continuous protection. Another advantage of this program is that you do not have to be home when the service is performed.

A: Yes. Whiteflies have been in the south Florida landscape for the past few years. There are liquid, granular and injection methods available to treat for the white fly. We offer all three treatment methods.
