PMPs offer new services for summer


June 11, 2015

In recent weeks, the Pest Management Professional staff has been receiving press releases aplenty about additional services pest professionals around the country are beginning to offer. Not only is it a sign of a recovering economy, it’s also showing a healthy attitude toward exploring new avenues, both from a marketing and a business perspective. What follow are just four recent examples. But we want to hear from you, too: Are you offering (or for that matter, discontinuing) any new services this summer? Sound off in the comments below!

Organic treatment
proof. Pest Control, a Southeast Michigan-based, family-owned company that does both residential and commercial work, is offering an 100% organic treatment option for general pest management.

“We like killing bugs. What can I say?” quips Allan Draper, proof.’s Wixom, Mich., branch manager. “The average person cringes when they see a spider. At proof., we take pride in dealing with problems that most people don’t even want to think about. We provide peace of mind so Michiganders can enjoy their homes and yards. Part of that peace of mind is making sure that customers are informed about and comfortable with the products we use.

“We have customers that want only organic products, inside and outside their home,” he adds. “We are pleased that we can accommodate these customers.”

Air duct cleaning
On June 1, Chuck Henrichsen, CEO of Clean Crawls, a  Seattle-based crawlspace and attic cleaning, insulation, and pest control company, expanded his company’s service offering to include air duct cleaning services.

“It is a natural progression for our business,” Henrichsen says, “because we already provide crawlspace and attic cleaning services; we deal with air ducts and HVAC systems on a regular basis. Many of our clients have requested simultaneous crawlspace cleaning and duct cleaning services, and we are now able to meet those needs quickly, easily and at highly competitive prices.”

Clean Crawls will be providing certified professional air duct cleaning services with state-of-the-art air duct cleaning tools and methods.

Mosquito program
Home Pest Control, a West Columbia, S.C.-based company that specializes in termite and pest control services, also offers a mosquito control program. Designed by its termite control specialists, the program intends to help homeowners decrease the amount of mosquitoes around their properties.

Home Pest Control offers one-time and monthly services, which are available between April and October. To schedule an appointment with Home Pest Control or request an estimate, clients simply need to fill out the form on the company’s website. Clients who have used Home Pest Control’s services in the past have always reported pleasant experiences with the company and its team.

“It is so nice to be able to enjoy our pool this summer without the constant nuisance of mosquitoes,” says Jennifer Blackhurst, a former client. “We are even able to host outdoor dinner parties without using any citronella candles to keep mosquitoes away. Home Pest Control’s Mosquito Service has proven to me that you can enjoy your own back yard in the summer due to a drastic reduction of mosquito population.”
