After confirming the presence of bed bugs, you will be provided with a preparation checklist, and your first bed bug treatment will be scheduled with one of our technicians.

Norway rats and roof rats are very different in their habits, habitats and behavior, so the first step involved in a professional rat treatment program is to correctly identify the rat and develop a treatment plan that works for that species.
Miche Pest Control's pest management professionals (PMPs) practice all techniques involved in Integrated Pest Management for rats. Rat extermination often involves both non-chemical and chemical methods. Some of the more important non-chemical methods are:
- Exclusion and sealing of entry points greater than ½ inch (about the size of a dime) using screens, flashing, door sweeps and other materials to keep rats from entering a structure.
- Interior and exterior sanitation to minimize available food and water that supports a rat population.
- Keeping vegetation thinned out or removed from the perimeter of buildings.
- Removing clutter and any debris that creates hiding places rats can use as harborage sites.
- Using traps and other mechanical means to remove rats.
Rat control using chemical products involves baits designed to kill rats. Care must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the use instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed. One of the more common techniques by rat exterminators for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals and people. In situations where rats aren't able to be controlled with traditional methods, direct treatment of rat ground burrows may sometimes be needed.
Seeing a few small ants may mean you have a larger problem. We have the experience and effective treatments to find and eliminate ant colonies so you can get back to enjoying your home. Ants are highly social. If you see one, there are likely more nearby, so infestations tend to happen fast. Because they live in colonies, it can be difficult to kill all the ants invading your home. Different ant species require different treatment methods for control. Some species of ants have satellite colonies in nearby yards or homes, meaning killing one colony might not be enough.

Depending on the species, cockroaches can grow up to 2 inches long. Cockroaches can produce 120-320 eggs in their lifetime. Anything a cockroach walks across may become contaminated with the bacteria carried by the cockroach. Cockroaches can transfer E. coli and salmonella from one food source to the next. Most cockroaches prefer to rest on wood, so they’re often found in wood cabinets and cardboard boxes. We will shut down cockroaches and other pests, and our advanced solutions adapt with seasonal pest activity to give you year-round protection. Guaranteed.

Seeing bees buzz around your home can be cause for concern. Fuzzy little black-and-yellow striped bumble bees landing in your garden is no issue, but if you see others around your wood structures, they may be carpenter bees—which you definitely don’t want. It can be dangerous to try to exterminate or relocate bees on your own, and you’d never want to hurt a honey bee by accident. That’s why you should call a professional bee exterminator when you have or suspect an infestation of bees.
Professional pest control companies like Miche Pest Control know how to identify harmful bees from beneficial ones and create treatment plans to eliminate carpenter bees. Each company is responsible, doing all they can to protect pollinators whenever possible.
Because they’re prevalent, it’s important for the protection of your home or business that you know how to get rid of termites. Termite extermination is a specialty of Miche Pest Control. Among other treatments, Miche Pest Control uses a Termite Bait and Monitoring System to rid your home or business of termites. Termite Bait and Monitoring Systems uses termites' nature against them, with a bait that termite workers are attracted to even more than wood. Workers eat this bait and bring it back to the colony, where the queen, workers, and new termites eat it. After feeding on the bait, these pests can’t molt, which means they can’t survive. Contact us to learn more, or get started on termite extermination and prevention.
You can also prevent a termite infestation by maintaining your building or home property to keep them out. Use proper drainage to keep the framing and soil around it dry. The termite control experts at Miche Pest recommend filling cracks and holes in cement and around entry points like pipes and electrical incursions, fixing all leaks, and keeping vents free from debris. Don’t plant trees or shrubs against wood structures and don’t pile wood-like firewood near your home or business.
