The Benefits Of Using Insect Growth Regulators For Cockroach, Flea, & Tick Control - San Antonio, Texas

Aug 6, 2017

The beauty of San Antonio is undeniable, but the humid, and often subtropical climate comes at a price. Much like humans, many insects and small animals are also attracted to the warm Texas weather, and as a result, are invited to reproduce at a much higher rate. According to David Denlinger of Ohio State University, “Insects develop more rapidly with higher temperatures”. That is why more and more homeowners across San Antonio have recently been discovering large and out of control infestations - sometimes overnight and without warning.

From scorpions to snakes, cockroaches, ants, mosquitoes, rodents, ticks, and fleas, San Antonio is host to all kinds of little critters. Aside from bed bugs, ticks, fleas, and cockroaches can often be the most problematic infestation, despite their size. In addition to long residual insecticides, Family Pest Control treats these pests using insect growth regulators that have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. Why?

The Advantages Of Using Insect Growth Regulators

Because insect growth regulators prevent the creation of a new exoskeleton during the molting process, this makes it less likely that insects will develop a resistance to them - unlike with insecticides alone. Put plain and simply, insect growth regulators are not only a safe, but are also an extremely effective alternative for eliminating your bug problem.

In order to control large American roaches, we use the Pest Cleanout System; throughout the summer, we will treat your underneath crawlspaces for no additional charge. If you want complete coverage we recommend our full yard treatment (Reduced from $65 to $45 for a limited time only).

Whether your home has needs for scorpion, mosquito, cockroach, ant, or tick control, San Antonio’s Family Pest Control is now offering one year of quarterly pest control for $320 plus tax. By paying this up-front fee, you will avoid paying the initial fee of $135 and receive the quarterly treatments for $80 each, rather than the usual $89 (and save exactly $88.77).
