Aphids and Whitefly

This treatment, which is part of our Annual Ant and Spider control program, should be performed between February 15th and June 15th to aid in the control of these homopterous insects.
This treatment is not sold as a standalone service.

This treatment is not meant to control 100% of the infestations. Our treatment of these insects is intended to minimize these populations. Thereby reducing the secretions produced that are a major food source for ants. Ants move colonies onto properties where these insects are plentiful.

Aphids and Whitefly can ancestor millions annually.
