Unless you call Alaska home, your house is not safe from termites. Subterranean termites are a huge problem because there are so many of them and they eat continuously. The cost of damage to homeowners is estimated at $5 billion per year — which means termites cause more damage than fires, floods and hurricanes combined. Our climate in the southeastern region of the United States is in the red zone for eastern subterranean termites and the subterranean Formosan termite. It is estimated that two subterranean termite colonies exist beneath every average size home. Whether you have termites now or want to prevent from causing damage in the future, Island Pest Control has a residential pest control Termite Protection Plan for you. After your free inspection, we will customize a Termite Protection Warranty for you.

No one wants creepy insects outside of a home or business. These pests can increase the dangers involved with bites or stings. Not only can a spider be a nuisance, but it can also leave filthy droppings and urine on surfaces used by human beings. It is possible for the wastes’ pathogens to enter the air, leading to diseases such as Hantavirus. In addition, any insects or wildlife lurking outside of a building can enter a building. For these reasons, outdoor pest control is a must. Routine exterior pest control treatments are an important way to keep lawns, decks and porches safe for families and customers.
Unwanted, pesky wildlife can find its way onto your property or into your home. These critters can cause major damage to your property, as well as carry many harmful diseases.

Wildlife Removal services are very similar to animal control services, in that they require trained professionals to come out to your property and live-trap those pesky animals.
Wherever they may go, bats can leave quite the mess. Whether a colony takes up residence in the attic or in the voids of walls, their foul odors can be smelled throughout the building.

Getting rid of these pests is not exactly easy, which is why bat removal should only be handled by trained wildlife experts.
