Houck Wildlife Pest Control
I recently moved into an apartment and learned quickly that we had a mice and roach infestation. Dave Houck of Houck's Pest Control was very knowledgeable and was able to show my roommates and I pictures to identify that we in fact had German Cockroaches (one of the most difficult types to get rid of). Within a week we were mouse free and a few weeks after that we were glad to be roach free also! My roommates and I are young (19 - 23) so we greatly appreciated the affordable prices that Dave Houck provided us. He was also able to eliminate these pests without risk to our Siberian Husky puppy, which we were very grateful for. Overall we were more than impressed with Houck's Pest Controls excellent service!

Houck Wildlife Pest Control
We've used Houck Wildlife and Pest Control for the past year for insect control. The service has been terrific! An honest outfit that does what they tell you they're going to do for you. Found their personnel to be very knowledgeable as they explained the steps they take to rid/control unwanted pests on your property. We'll continue to use without hesitation because of the outstanding professional service we have received thus far.
Tips & Advices
Ask your pest control company about no-kill traps you can use if you want to get mice, rabbits, opossums or other furry creatures out of your house without harming them.
Many pest control experts now offer environmentally friendly treatment for your home and yard with insecticides that aren't as harsh for the ecosystem. Check with exterminators around your area to see if they provide these kinds of services. Also, keep your plants free from harmful chemicals by spraying cedar oil or soapy water on your flowers.
  • Dispose of garbage regularly.
  • Don't ┬áleaving food or drink out.
  • Clean up after spills as soon as you can.
  • Drain any standing water in your house or yard.
  • Regularly mow and rake your lawn.
If you find insects and other animals trying to get in through cracks or openings, use a caulk gun to fill the gaps. You'll also want to either use traditional bug spray or a citronella candle to keep bugs such as mosquitos away from you during the summer months.
The price for exterminators can range broadly since they can charge for a monthly inspection and treatment. The final bill also comes down to the square footage of your property.
When pest control technicians visit your home or place of business, expect them to first identify what insect or other animal it is that's causing trouble. After identification, they will inspect your building to see where the pests are coming from and locate their hive or nest. Then the exterminator will spray or set out traps and bait according to which pest you have.
