Our Pest Control Service
Residential, Commercial, And Multifamily Exterminators
Our safe and proven effective pest treatments for Dallas area homes and properties cover a wide range of pests, from termites, bedbugs, fire ants, fleas and ticks, roaches, German roaches, spiders, mosquitos, animals, grubs, rodents, and birds. So whether you need extermination or trapping services, we have you covered. Here is a rundown of our pest treatments:
Our process for termite control begins by digging a trench in the soil or grass areas around the property. Next, holes will be drilled 18 inches apart in concrete or asphalt areas. We then apply chemicals to the trench and holes, followed by foaming all plumbing exclusions and back traps inside the walls on the property. Finally, we will cover the trench and holes to complete the job.
We use chemical, aerosol, and dust treatments to eliminate pesky bedbugs. We will treat your baseboards, cracks, and crevices throughout your property and even remove and reinstall the switch plates around your plugs to dust around your outlets. Our bedbug extermination is a minimum two-step treatment completed 21 days apart, and we provide a prep sheet before treatment.
Fire Ants Control
Fire ants are most effectively killed through a two-step baiting and mound drench method. By baiting and eliminating the queen and other worker ants and then using insecticide for targeted treatments on the mounds, fire ants can be eliminated from your yard. Mars Services can provide this to keep your yard free from fire ants, which can be a major nuisance.
Flea And Tick Control
Fleas and ticks are common in Texas yards. We use a liquid and aerosol treatment to handle these pesky bugs. The aerosol is applied to floors, baseboards, and furniture inside your home, while a liquid treatment is used to treat your backyard. Flea and Tick treatment is a minimum, two-step treatment completed 7-10 days apart and includes a prep sheet before treatment.
Roaches are common in Texas and often spend time near the dark, food, warmth, and moisture. For this reason, insecticides, in addition to good housekeeping, can help eliminate infestations. Finding and treating harborage locations are the best way for Mars Services to tackle roach infestations to ensure that your roach problem is eliminated.
German Roach Control
German cockroach treatment is a minimum two-step process. Before treatment, we provide you with a prep sheet to prepare. Everything must be removed from the cabinets in your kitchen and bathroom area. We treat the entirety of your home, focusing on the kitchens and bathrooms to eliminate these persistent types of roaches from your home or property.
Spider control methods range from sprays and traps to repellants, each with pros and cons. Spider traps include glue boards that are non-toxic and cost-effective but can be less effective against larger populations. Sprays can kill on contact and are easy to use but often leave a residue. Natural spider repellant is non-toxic and suitable for both indoor and outdoor but can have a higher cost and re-application time.
Mosquitos are a major nuisance in Texas. Mosquito control manages the population of mosquitoes to reduce their damage to human health, economies, and enjoyment. Mosquito control is a vital part of public health, as mosquitoes spread many diseases, such as malaria and the Zika virus.
In the context of wildlife damage management (WDM), exclusion refers to using barriers to reduce wildlife access to resources such as food, cover, and water. If you find that you have unwanted animals in your home, exclusion is a method that both modifies habitats and prevents damage.
Unlike exclusion, Animal trapping is used to remotely catch an animal for humane rehoming purposes. All trapped animals are released into a safe area where they can humanely return back to the wild. This may be necessary if you find you have some unwanted animals around your home or property area.
Rodent Control Service
Rodents can hide and lurk throughout your property and be a significant source of frustration. Our process is a minimum two-step treatment, using bait boxes and a baiting system with an anticoagulant. We will look for entry points, letting you know where they are and the best way to take care of them.
Grub Control Service
Grubs, the larval stage of various types of beetles, include the Japanese beetle, Northern Masked Chafer, June Beetle, and more. These grubs can cause significant damage to turf grasses, trees, and shrubs. While low populations may not cause enough damage to be seen, when populations increase, you may see significant damage to your lawn.
Bird Exclusion And Proofing
Birds can cause problems such as noise, disease and illness, and property damage. Certain species have been known to contribute to structural damage in any property through their nesting and pecking behaviors. Bird droppings corrode expensive business equipment and materials like metal, concrete, and paint. Bird exclusion and proofing can ensure they cannot infiltrate your home or property, eliminating the damage they can cause.
Termite Control FAQ
How Mars Handles Termites
If you’re looking for quality termite control in your home or property’s yard, it’s important to know what product your pest control company uses and how long until it works. So if you are a property manager or homeowner looking for termite control in the Dallas, Texas, area with questions about termite control, we have the FAQ you’ve been looking for.
What Termite Product Does Mars Services Use?
Mars Services uses Termidor to treat termites in your yard. Once a termite comes into contact with Termidor, they carry it back to the colony on their bodies, infecting others through a transfer effect. Most other termiticides are repellents, which keep termites away from an area rather than killing them. Termidor takes termiticide directly to the source, helping eliminate pests completely from your home or property area. Termidor affects Formosan and subterranean termites, the two most destructive species in the United States, which account for 80% of the $2.5 billion in annual destruction to homes and buildings.
How Is Termidor Applied?
This odor-free termiticide is applied by digging 2×4 trenches around the soil areas of your home or property. Then, small holes will be drilled every 18 inches on the concrete areas of your home, followed by foaming all plumbing exclusions inside the walls of your home. The total time for Termidor treatment can vary depending on the size of your home or property.
How Long Does Termidor Last?
While in every test, Termidor has achieved control of termites within three months or less, Termidor binds to the soil so there is no leaching through rainfall or irrigation. This means that there is no break or reduction in Termidor’s effectiveness at controlling the termite populations around your property at a faster rate than termite bait and monitoring systems.
