What Are The Classifications Of An Occasional Invader?
Have you ever heard the term “occasional invader” during a conversation with a neighbor, family member, or professional? If so, did you ever question its meaning? It is likely, you just ignored the term and continued to carry on a conversation with the individual. Occasional invader is a term very familiar among Livonia exterminators. The term represents a group of insect species that rarely invade residential and commercial establishments. All species in this group do not prey on homes, they just happen to find themselves indoors occasionally.
Insect species and arthropods classified as occasional invaders include the following:
- Cluster fly
Why Did An Occasional Invader Target My Home?
People who are familiar with the occasional invader may be shocked when they detect a sighting in their homes and businesses. These insects utilize access points near windows and doors to gain entrance to buildings. If your home was invaded by one or more occasional invaders, an access point is a contributor.
What Steps Should I Take To Eradicate An Occasional Invader Infestation?
The first step is to contact our Livonia extermination company for assistance. Of course, not everyone will comply with this recommendation. It is not unusual for someone to say “I got this” after spotting an occasional invader in their living quarters. You may very well have control of the situation, but if you ignore what you saw, it could end in a full-blown infestation. Our occasional invader pest control combines two or more treatments – pesticides, traps, steam, heat, or cryonite – to maximize results. In addition to the combined treatments, a visual inspection is a necessity. We do not mean to insult when we recommend a visual inspection of the impacted home. This is a crucial step in the extermination of occasional invaders. The visual inspection will give our exterminators data that can be utilized for identification, extermination, infestation rating. With this said no treatment plan will work without a combined effort from our exterminators and the household members.
When Will The Exterminator Conduct The Initial Inspection?
It can take anywhere between 24 to 48 hours to process an occasional invader inspection request and dispatch an exterminator out to the requesting client’s home. We will contact you with the appointment date after your request is fully processed.
Do Occasional Invader Pesticides Contain Harmful Ingredients?
Chemical-based pesticides may contain ingredients that may be harmful to humans, animals, and the environment. However, it is possible to minimize and even sometimes eliminate these risks by obeying the manufacturer’s administration, storage, and handling recommendations. We take safety very seriously, which is why we partnered with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to bring awareness to pesticide toxicity. The agency is responsible for pesticide oversight in the United States. Every pesticide in our extermination arsenal contains the FDA pesticide-approved label.
