What are bed bugs?

Bed-bugs or bedbugs are parasitic insects of the cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. Cimex lectularius, the common bed bug, is the best known, as it prefers to feed on human blood.

The name “bed bug” derives from the preferred habitat of Cimex lectularius: warm houses and especially near or inside beds and bedding or other sleep areas. Bed bugs are mainly active at night but are not exclusively nocturnal. They usually feed on their hosts without being noticed. If you find an infestation of bed bugs in your home or business, contact us to get your bed bugs eliminated for good. Not sure if you have bed bugs? We also provide bed bug inspections.

Bed bugs, as the name implies, are commonly associated with areas where we sleep. These insects lay dormant during daylight hours in small cracks and crevices, coming out at night to feed on our blood. Bedbugs often hide near bedding areas but can travel up to 100 feet to obtain a meal. Most activity occurs between midnight and 7:00 a.m. The bite of a bedbug is painless, but most people will develop an allergic reaction to the saliva transferred from the bugs as they feed. The reaction will result in red swollen and itchy skin. Rid your home of bed bugs, contact us today!


Bat Removal  — Do you need bat removal or wildlife removal? Our Exterminators are on call for all of your emergency bat & wildlife removal needs. Once bats move into a house, they rarely relocate, unless evicted using proper bat exclusion techniques. Locating entry points are known to be the best way of how to get rid of multiple bats fast. Place them from the outside of your house, as well as inside the attic.

For professional bat removal, please get in touch today with Our Exterminators & Wildlife Removal experts and we will get you connected to the best in the area.

Despite the risk of rabies, bats are beneficial in controlling insects. Some states have laws protecting bats. There are no pesticides registered to control bats.

Our Exterminator’s wildlife removal partners have provided bat and other animal trapping services on residential homes and commercial buildings for an average of 7 years or more. When you need a humane wildlife trapping company specializing in bat removal and colony relocation, call us today! Our wildlife removal experts trap, exclude, and relocate all nuisance wild animals small to large.

Contact our office for more information on wildlife control and restrictions on bat control measures. 

What To Do When A Bat Is In The House?

Remain calm and keep pets and children away. The bat will tend to fly in a U-shaped path, flying higher near the walls and lower in the center of the room, so keep near a wall.

Close interior doors and give the bat a single way to get outside. If the bat doesn’t exit on their own, it is best to wait until they land to try to catch them or to call a wildlife removal professional.

Bat Removal Cost 

Costs can vary. But there are 3 main principles:

Bat control is highly specialized work, with unique licensing and liability risks.

You usually get what you pay for, and cheap companies tend to do “not so good” work.

There is no one-price-fits-all. Each bat job is different.

With that said, on average a homeowner will spend approximately $300-$400 for bat removal.

After Bat Removal 

Once the bats and animals are excluded, Our Exterminator’s wildlife removal partners can perform all the necessary proofing repairs to prevent the bats and other wildlife animals from returning. When bats are removed from the attic, attic restoration or clean up of damaged insulation is highly recommended to get your attic to its correct, clean condition. Bat guano (their feces) carry a wide range of bacteria and fungi spores which can become airborne if not treated correctly. For bat removal, maintenance, and proofing  — contact us.

We recommend calling at least 4 pest control companies to get an estimate. We help you do this by connecting you automatically to the top exterminators who can safely remove wild animals from your home humanely.


A common occurrence in late spring and summer are Bee or Wasp swarms. Although many swarms are migrating and will leave the property without building a nest within the space of a couple of days they can still cause undue stress or worry. If the problem does persist beyond this time then a nest has most likely been established and we’re on hand and ready to ensure its destruction. The nest is fumigated with either an effective insecticide spray or foam which are either sprayed directly into the nest or sprayed in the vicinity which the occupants carry into the nest upon their return. Honey or Bumble Bee nests would not be subject to extermination due to their classification as protected species. A beekeeper is sent out instead who will remove the nest without killing the Bees.

If you run a food business, it is a legal requirement to ensure your property has adequate procedures to prevent and address the risk any pest issues may cause. We offer a contract service where a number of visits per year are provided to ensure your property is being protected and any required treatment is taken care of.

If you are reporting numerous bites or you have detected a number of tiny droppings in the house you may have a Bed Bug, Flea, or Cockroach infestation. These pests have notoriety in regard to their resistance to extermination and the difficulty to subdue. To overcome this obstacle, our pest controllers are licensed to use very potent sprays and treatment products. Bed Bugs and Fleas are subject to an extensive spray treatment in the property and Cockroaches are treated through the implementation of sticky gel bait in salient areas where the Cockroaches will find the bait which in itself carries a high chance of success.

Mice, Rats, and Squirrels can infest a property and can cause serious structural problems in the long term. As they need to keep gnawing to inhibit the constant growth of their front incisors, they can gnaw through electrical wiring and cause structural damage (damage to electrical wiring carries the risk of electrical fires.) The indicators of an infestation would be the sound of scratching inside the walls or ceiling or through visual evidence in the form of droppings or holes. If this happens just contact us and we can proceed in tackling the problem. The pest controller will investigate the property, determine the hot spots for rodent activity, and apply the bait boxes and poisons throughout the property, aiming for the total destruction of the rodent infestation. While on-site we usually arrange a second visit for trap retrieval.

Insect infestations can be an irritant but they are easily treated using powders or sprays as appropriate. The powder we use is very effective against Ants. They digest it and the effects emerge with immediate effect. The sprays are effective against Moths, Flies, and other insects.

Have you experienced any Bird disturbances? In the past few years, we have expanded into the service of providing deterrence services through the implementation of netting or spikes to prevent any unwelcome Bird habitation. We aim to deliver high-quality and competitively priced Bird deterrent service through identifying the primary areas (either through investigative work or through your advice) and determining the best treatment measures through careful consideration. Anti-Bird netting can be applied to prevent Birds from entering and roosting in areas you do not want to be disturbed and bird control spikes can be fitted to ledges and locations Birds tend to perch to keep them Bird-free.

On a few occasions, you may find your garden has been invaded by Moles. Through the creation of hills and tunnels, Moles undermine both your garden’s appearance but also compromise the lawn’s integrity through tunneling. Traps are placed down the Mole holes which catch any intrigued Moles, killing them on contact.

Removal of dead pests with no required treatment is also a service we provide. If you find yourself with a dead pest that needs disposing we are only a phone call away. We understand the displeasure the decomposition stage can cause and would be happy to remedy the problem for you.

Our Pest Control Helps You Deal with Pesky Pests

You may love having guests over, but surely ants, rats, and cockroaches are not invited. No one in their right mind would want to come home to fleas. In fact, homeowners don’t even want to think about sharing their homes with any kind of pests. Nonetheless, pests pose a very real threat and are more widespread than you may imagine.

Pests can be easily spotted during the day, but the nocturnal ones, like rats and mice, are difficult to spot. It’s difficult to spot them during the day, but you may find partially nibbled food, droppings, burrows, and nests if you have rats or mice in your home. It’s scary to think about what may be lurking in the unseen areas of your home.

You can avoid the infestation of some pests simply by keeping your house clean. But others need to be disposed of with the help of a knowledgeable pest control service. A pest control service may use several methods to rid your home of unwanted insects and rodents.

It helps to know that pests want three things that are easily available in your home. These include food, water, and shelter. Though most insects are not quite keen on another basic necessity – clothing, clothing moths can often raid your wardrobe to snip away at the fabric, ruining them for good. It is necessary to have an ongoing pest control service maintenance program to ensure that infestations are under control and future ones do not arise. The service may also offer you tips and suggestions to help keep pests at bay.

Common Pests

Ants are a constant source of irritation. They can wreak havoc indoors or out and we will find the main nest and destroy it. Without destroying the nest the ants will only regroup and return.

Cockroaches are also extremely difficult to control, which is not surprising since they can go into hiding and live for a very long time without food or water. The best way to keep roaches out is by keeping your house clean. Once infested, roaches are not easy to get rid of. Our pest control service uses federally approved pesticides to keep this tenacious pest out of your home. A spotlessly clean house, especially the kitchen, is the best strategy as far as roaches are concerned.

Different kinds of bugs swarm in spring and autumn and form a significant part of the pest control service’s business. They can interfere with your comfort at home or with your gardening Pests can grow in number very quickly, so it’s a good idea to call us as soon as possible. Bugs are best dealt with by a qualified pest control service.

People especially dislike fleas because they can cause physical discomfort. Some pests are nocturnal and feed on human blood. Your local pest control service takes special care to rid you of this problem. All beds are stripped bare and every crevice and joint examined. Even the seams and buttons of mattresses may be teeming with these parasites.

Cats and dogs are carriers of fleas and children playing with the pets may be tormented by the fleas. They are not particularly difficult to control. One pest control service treatment should do the trick. Dust mites as well are often found in every home and can cause allergic reactions like asthma. Though difficult to get rid of, the simple rule of thumb is the less dust, the fewer dust mites.

Pest Control Tips for Pest Control

Always keep an eye out for any pest trouble. Most pest problems are better nipped in the bud and can be easily controlled if spotted early enough. If neglected they can snowball into a much bigger problem. A knowledgeable pest control service will suggest several basic things that can be done to prevent infestation.

Using amber lighting outside keeps insects from being attracted to bright lights. Caulking any cracks and joints is also a good idea because it helps prevent roaches and other insects from using it as their hiding place. Also, cleanliness goes a long way in helping you keep your house pest-free. Pests are tiny, and as a knowledgeable pest control service will tell you, they can survive even on the smallest crumbs. Keeping the outside of the house clean is equally important. Piles of leaves and other rubbish in your backyard form excellent nesting and hiding places for a wide variety of rodents and insects. It’s important to clean up yard debris on a regular basis.

While following the above tips will help you prevent infestation, if you do find that your house has been invaded by pests, you are better off calling  our Pest control service.

Keeping You Pest Free

While a reputable pest control service is not against home owners attempting to get rid of the occasional fly or ant on their own, they advise exercising caution. If you are attempting to use pesticides on your own, pay a great deal of attention to how you handle them, and always follow the label instructions. For more tips and ideas about how to avoid these unwanted guests in your home, contact us.

Pest control technicians are trained professionals who understand what makes pests thrive and what kills them. An average homeowner may not have such specialized knowledge. So if you find any signs of pest infestation in your house, it is better to call for your nearest pest control service rather than attempting to handle it on your own.

Our professionals are trained in locating the root cause of the problem and attacking it there. We use the latest and best equipment and technology, with minimum interference to your daily schedule. Once the infestation is taken care of, a reliable pest control technician will give you useful tips to keep your home free of pests.


landscaping – tree services 6/19/2020 – gtg

A home is more than just the walls around you, it also includes the property which surrounds it. Whether you have a palatial mansion on hundreds of acres or a quarter acre of grass, you can do a lot with what you have if you know what you’re doing. Read on for tips that will help anyone to make their property more beautiful.

Use balance, not symmetry. A balanced distribution of plants creates a focal point, but the garden should never be symmetrical. For example, a large tree to the left of the garden can be balanced by two smaller trees to the right. This creates a much more desirable effect in the garden, whereas a symmetrical look appears completely unnatural.

If you are installing lighting it is a good idea to make sure that you do not overdo it. While it is nice for walkways to be well lit, you do not want to make your yard look like everything is under a spotlight. Furthermore, make sure that it is evenly lit since having bright areas and then dark areas near one another do not look good.

Add color with petunias or impatiens. These small annual flowers will blossom throughout the year and keep your landscape vibrant with colors. These plants are very affordable and easy to take care of. You should get a large number of these and place them throughout your yard where a touch of color is needed.

Check outside of the internet and large home improvement stores for your plants and materials. You may find botanical centers holding sales on plants. You may even want to ask around the neighborhood or check the classified ads to see if anyone has extra perennials that they are looking to get rid of.

Whether your lawn needs a major overhaul, it is just time to get it growing again in the spring, aeration is a great idea. The aerating process involves punching small holes through the turf to improve soil drainage. If you have a tiny lawn, you can handle aeration with manual tools. For bigger areas, mechanical aerators are available.

You should know that prices fluctuate from one season to the other. You should compare prices for the materials you need and wait for the right moment to buy them. Buying in large quantities is also a good way to save money: do not be afraid to stock materials you know you will use later.

When planning a landscaping project for your house, try to encapsulate ideas that will bring a pleasant look to your yard no matter what time of the year it is. This is important because you do not want to spend all of your money on a yard that only looks good for a few months out of the year.

Do not shy away from bargain-hunting at the garden center. Such stores are usually running sales on certain plant species, and you can realize significant savings by taking advantage of them. Be flexible with your landscaping plans. A cheaper alternative may produce the effect you are looking for and save you money at the same time.

When hiring a professional landscaper, it is important to make sure they have a license and liability insurance. You wouldn’t want a tree to fall on your car, and not be able to collect for the damages! Always protect yourself, and your property by requiring proof of license and insurance.

When planning a landscaping project for your house, be sure to mix hard scape in addition to your landscaping. This includes features such as fencing, decking, and walls. This may not only add to the value of your home but also provides privacy and a great look to your entire yard.

Landscape according to the different seasons. Make sure you include a variety of plants in your garden that are at their best during different seasons. This way you will create a landscape that offers year-round interest. Plant a combination of shrubs, trees, and flowers, and make sure that there is always something colorful to catch the eye, no matter what season.

It could be resodding the dead parts of your grass, planting rosebushes or even, putting in a pool, because landscaping can be as small or as grand as you choose it to be. Whatever your budget, timeline, or skill level, the ideas in this article can help you to create a yard that meets your wants and needs.

Tree Removal, Tree trimming, tree pruning, tree cutting, and stump grinding.. we do it all!

#1 Tree Care Company
All homeowners over the course of their property ownership will inevitably need to maintain or remove trees. Sometimes this need is derived from wanting to improve the property’s appearance, but most commonly its because there is a tree or broken limb that poses a major safety hazard. What we see a lot of times is overgrown trees that are to close to buildings and the branches of the tree are hanging over the roof. If the tree or even just a branch fell it could cause serious damage to the roof and cause other structural problems. Most importantly, a fallen tree can cause great harm/death to you or a member of your family. It is a homeowner’s duty to protect their home and the people that occupy it. Call us today for a free quote and we will come by your property and inspect the trees you are concerned about.

Emergency Tree Removal Service
When mother nature does strike, the damage it can leave can be overwhelming. Over the years, we have seen it all. We have seen fallen trees destroy homes and crush automobiles that were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Removing fallen trees in a timely manner is crucial. By doing so, you eliminate a dangerous situation for the home occupants and you prevent further structural damage by removing the enormous weight a tree is placing on your home or building. Most importantly, fast tree removal will also eliminate a hazardous situation for its occupants. Luckily for local residents and businesses, we are on call 24/7 to help you with your emergency tree removal needs. We will be on the scene as soon as possible to assess the situation and fix the problem.

Need Stump Grinding and Removal in Phoenix, AZ?
Sometimes an unsightly stump has plagued your yard for years or perhaps recently you had a tree removed. Most tree removal projects do not include stump grinding/removal unless requested specifically by the homeowner. Many of our stump grinding customers are clients from previous years that were satisfied by just having the tree itself removed and did not think the remaining stump would be an issue. When they call us to have it removed it is usually for one of three main reasons. The most common reasons are:

The stump is an eyesore and affects the appearance of the property overall.
The stump is dangerous because I have children playing in the yard.
The stump is taking up space that we would like to use for other things, such as installing a pool or planting a garden.

Whatever your reasons are, when local residents or businesses need stump grinding, they are in good hands with our services. We can move our equipment onto your property without causing additional damage to grass or shrubs. When we are finished, you will have a nice pile of freshly cut wood chips that can be used for landscaping purposes. If you don’t want the wood chips, we can haul that away as well for a small fee. The cost of stump grinding depends primarily on the size of the stump and how far down you want it ground. Typically, we will grind a stump down to about 8 inches below the surface of the ground. We find that this depth is more than satisfactory for most homeowners. If you want the stump ground even deeper or perhaps completely removed, root ball and all, expect to pay a bit more.

A Tree Care Company You Can Count On
Tree removal projects are not tasks to be taken lightly. In all honestly, even basic tree trimming projects should be left to professionals. We have heard countless stories of homeowners and do-it-yourself types injuring themselves trying to save money by doing it themselves. Operating dangerous machinery like a chainsaw should not be done from a ladder. It’s not worth risking injury and sometimes, unfortunately, your life. We are tree professionals who deal with tree removal day in and day out. We know how to get the job done in a timely but most importantly, a safe manner. When it comes to trees, the danger is always lurking. Because we are licensed and insured, you can rest easy knowing that you are covered if something were to happen to a member of our crew during the course of a tree care project taking place on your property.


Once you’ve successfully cut down and removed a tree you only have one thing left to do, remove the stump. The removal of the tree is relatively straightforward in comparison to the removal of a stump. Stump removal has a lot more involved and takes special machinery to effectively and safely grind the stump down well past ground-level to ensure a flush and uniform look to the lawn. Often time’s removal is not included with the cost of taking down and removing the tree itself and this is generally why you see stumps remaining long after the tree is gone from someone’s yard.

Successfully grinding down a tree stump safely takes not only proper knowledge but also experience. This is why it is best left to professionals. Our company works both quickly and methodically. This ensures that we do not take up any additional time during the removal process. We ensure satisfaction and guarantee the complete removal of any stump you may have. It is imperative that you remove any stump that is located near any additional trees which you are keeping. The reasoning for this is due to the fact that stumps attract fungal diseases that can very easily spread to neighboring trees.

The Equipment
Have you ever wondered what type of machinery is used? The stump grinder we use has a steel wheel type blade located in the front of the machine. This wheel spends at an extremely fast rate much like the blade of a saw and it has teeth that are carbide tipped. This blade is lowered onto the stump and is moved from side to side slowly lowering down onto the stump further and further with each additional pass. This process is continued until the stump is completely removed. This is the machine needed to effectively remove tree stumps.

Reasons for Tree Stump Removing
After going through the trouble of having a tree removed from your property it doesn’t make sense to stop short of completion by having the stump remain. Here are just a few of the top reasons why you should have your stumps removed from your yard.

They’re an Eyesore – Nobody enjoys looking out and admiring a freshly cut lawn only to have their attention grabbed away by an old stump. Inevitably they’ll start to look even worse once weeds and other plants start to grow over them taking away from the beauty of your lawn. This is hands down one of the biggest reasons for tree stump grinding.
They take up Valuable Space – It’s an interesting phenomenon but often times tree stumps end up being in the absolute worst locations. This can become extremely frustrating. In general, most people want a very wide and open yard but having a stump can really get in the way of achieving this goal. This is a huge contributing factor for removing tree stumps.
They’re Hazardous – Some stumps are easily visible and very obvious, but oftentimes they are hidden or camouflaged by weeds, grass, and plants and can become hazardous if not properly tended to. These not only become tripping hazards but they can also cause serious damage if hit by a vehicle. By leaving these dangerous stumps unattended they cause a great liability when left on your property.

Pricing of Professional Tree Stump Removal Services
Often times it is in a homeowner’s best interest to hire a professional to grind away any unsightly stumps on their property. It may not be as cost-effective in comparison to attempting to remove the stump on your own, but imagine how expensive it could become when you have to hire a professional to remove the stump after you failed to successfully remove the stump yourself. Between the cost of machinery rental, your personal time, and the price of hiring a professional it can become a very expensive do-it-yourself attempt not to mention the dangers that are attributed to it.

Generally, the costs of tree stump grinding range between $100 and $400 per stump with an average per diameter price of between $2 and $3. If you decide to tackle stump remover on your own it could cost as little as $75 for a half-day rental or between $250 and $400 for a full day. One thing to remember when researching for a professional tree stump grinder company is that often times they will charge for this service based on different criteria.

For example:

Priced by Diameter – On average the per diameter price is between $2 and $3 per inch and companies will generally charge a minimum of $100. If you have multiple stumps that need to be ground you should measure the diameters of each stump then multiply that by the average price per diameter. For example, if you have five stumps that are all 15 inches in diameter you will multiply 15 inches x 5 which is 75 inches, you would then multiply 75 inches by the price per diameter which in this example is $2. So the price of getting your five stumps removed in this example would be $150.

By the Hour Pricing – often companies will charge by the hour if they are clearing out huge areas of land that need hundreds of stumps removed. Common pricing for this type of work is around $150 per hour. Very few homeowners will ever need to worry about this type of service.

By the Stump Pricing – This is by far the most common way in which the majority of tree grinding companies price their services. With this type of pricing, companies will generally charge by the number of stumps that need to be removed. In most cases, the company will charge around $100-$200 for the first stump, and then they will give a discounted price for each additional stump following the first.

Factors that could affect the pricing of professional stump removal services.

The Diameter – The larger the diameter, the larger the cost
The Age – Older stumps are usually easier to grind down due to rot and weathering
Soil Condition – If the soil is rocky you could easily damage equipment thus the pricing could be affected
The Type of Tree – Certain types of wood is harder to grind than others
Root Systems – Extensive root systems are more costly to remove in comparison to minimal roots
Cleanup – If you want the woodchips to be removed you will often pay more

What You Can Expect When Having a Tree Removed From a Tree Removal Service
There many different services available when talking about the removal of a tree, but generally speaking most of these services will be included in the price of the removal. More than likely, the tree will probably need to get completely cut down and removed. Oftentimes the contractor may even need to rope down portions of the tree and this is done by climbing sections of the tree and cutting it into smaller, more manageable sizes which can be more easily handled and controlled. Also, generally speaking, it will also be taken away and removed from you property at no additional charge (or that is contained in the pricing). Do you need a tree removed? Give us a call today!

Services That Could Cost You Extra
Sometimes you’ll be in need of more than just a basic stump or tree removal. By way of example, if the tree removal company does not include the removal of the limb then this is something you may need to pay extra for. The average cost of limb removal can vary but often times it ranges between $50 and $75.

Stump Removal — Stump removal is virtually never included in the cost associated with the removal of a tree. Most of the time you will need to pay an additional cost for this service, and if this additional cost is not paid then you will be left with an eyesore, called a stump. On some occasions, you can get a discounted price if you get the stump removed in addition to the tree removal. Yet, different equipment is required and may need to be completed by a subcontractor if the tree removal company does not own a stump grinder. That’s why this additional service can be a considerable addition to the overall price of the removal. Also, the diameter of the stump can be a good gauge in estimating the cost of its removal. An older stump that is withered and weak will often be cheaper to remove because it is easily destroyed by the stump grinder in comparison to a healthy, strong stump.

Limb Chipping — Instead of paying more to have all of the tree limbs taken away, you could decide to have them put through the chipper. In case the tree service comes with a chipper and a truck or trailer to haul off all of the chippings. Having this done will not cost you a great deal more. When this is not included, you could potentially have to pay around $75 for this to be completed.

Tree Trunk (body) Removal — At a minimum, the tree removal company should cut the trunk of the tree into smaller more manageable pieces. This will make it much easier for you to move them out of the way or get rid of them completely. In the event that you’d prefer the company to remove the tree trunk for you, this will oftentimes cost you a bit extra. Generally speaking, the price of trunk removal will range between $50 and $100.

Travel Expenses — If you find yourself in a remote area that is hard or difficult to get to and the removal service needs to travel a great distance to get to your property, you are going to more than likely have to pay travel costs associated with the cost of the trip. This could or could not include total drive time.

Log Splitting — For anyone who has a fireplace, it can be a truly amazing add-on service. If the tree removal company offers it, then they will bring along a log breaking machine, better known as a splitter. There’s isn’t really a fixed price on this type of service. However, it normally adds an additional $75 roughly to the complete price.

Average Price of Tree Removal
Now that you have an idea of what any extras might cost, you’re likely wondering how much you’ll have to pay for a tree removal service. This is greatly dependent on the actual size of the tree itself:

the height of 25 feet or less-anywhere between $150 and $500
between 25 feet and 75 feet tall-anywhere between $200 and $1000
75 feet tall and up-minimum of $1500
The removal of large trees (price range: $1500+)

There isn’t a realistic way for a normal homeowner to properly and safely eliminate a huge tree from her or his property. If you have no experience with tree removal then this is definitely not something you want to attempt yourself. One thing you should be aware of is the fact that the removal of large trees will be very expensive. The total cost of this job will be calculated based upon a number of various factors. When the climbers are required to climb excessively high and rope down many individual pieces or sections of the tree before actually felling the tree itself, which is often times the scenario with extremely tall trees; the price tag on the bill is going to be quite large. As we stated above, you could easily pay $1,500 if not more for that kind of tree removal service. It could be advantageous to ask the company if they will throw in some additional small extras for free, but sometimes tree removal companies are not willing to accommodate something like this.

Dropped or fallen tree (price range: $75-$150)
If a tree happens to fall on your property, you will more than likely want to remove it as soon as possible. Even though this endeavor isn’t nearly as risky or complicated as with a living, healthy tree, it requires a fair amount of equipment and may lead to personal injury if you’re not attentive to the task at hand. The fantastic news is the fact that the expense to get rid of a fallen tree is on average a whole lot lower than felling and removing a living tree. Of course, the price will be dictated on whether you decide to have the tree chipped, hauled away, split, or left in place.

Oak Tree Removal: (price range: $200-$1000)
Oak is among the toughest, hardest, and most sought after woods. Because of this, tree removal companies will generally charge premium pricing for the removal of an oak. Oak trees can also grow to be quite tall. The average height of a strong and mature oak tree is around 60 feet. You can take a look at the price guide above to find that you can expect to pay somewhere between $200 and $1,000 depending on the size of the tree to have an oak tree removed. Because oak is such a tough and strong species of tree you can expect to pay a premium for its removal. Be sure to have a solid reason for its removal because it can put quite a dent in your change purse.

Pine Tree Removal: (price range: $200-$1500)
There are countless species of pine throughout America, but on average the height of a pine tree is somewhere between 40 and 60 feet. Some varieties can effortlessly reach up to 80 feet if not taller. As you probably already understand, the amount that will need to be paid for its removal will largely be dictated on the overall size of the tree itself. If you have a small pine then you might only need to spend a few hundred dollars for its removal. But, if you have a pine that soars 80+ feet in the air then don’t be surprised if the cost of its removal is $1500 or more. This might help you understand why it is vital for you to receive multiple quotes from several different tree removal companies.

Tree Branch Removal: (price range: $200-$300)
What if you only need to get a handful of branches taken down from a tree? They happen to be interfering with power lines and you can simply pick up the phone and call your respective power company. They will often times come out and handle it free of any price tag. If you have a branch or have multiple branches that need to be removed for any reason, you will have to seek the assistance of a tree removal and trimming company. Obviously, if the branches small and low to the ground, you can more than likely do it yourself. In the case that you need to employ an expert, you can expect to get charged an hourly rate. Most tree removal companies charge in the ballpark of $200 and $300 an hour. For those who have several hard-to-reach branches that need to be removed, it might wind up being pretty pricey depending on the duration of time it takes to remove them. Keep in mind, if they’re being paid by the hour, they will be taking their sweet time.

Tree Stump Removal Expenses
Stump elimination or removal prices will vary depending on several factors. The cost associated with the removal of a stump will vary greatly depending on whether you do it yourself (DIY style) or hire an expert to do the job, but different elements will also come into play. By educating yourself on the costs associated with the removal of a tree stump, you will be able to prevent unpleasant surprises.

Factors that alter tree removal pricing
As mentioned many times throughout the entirety of this guide, the price tag associated with a complete or partial tree removed will be based on several different facets. Here’s a quick recap of the primary factors:

Size — the total height of the tree is one of the major factors that is taken into account when estimating the price of a tree removal.
Condition — If it’s a strong and healthy tree, you could expect to pay a little more. If it’s standing dead, dying, or rotten, the work will more than likely be easier and should result in a cheaper price. If you’re still told an excessively expensive price make sure to mention that the tree is a week or standing dead.
Diameter — The width of the tree or diameter plays a major part in how much you’ll have to pay. This comes into play during the grinding or removal of the stump. In theory, you might have to pay more to remove a stump that is thicker and shorter than you would have to pay for a stump that is thinner and taller.
Location — the location of the tree is a major factor when getting the price of its removal. A tree that is in a dangerous location or has many hard-to-reach limbs can cost quite a bit more due to its difficult removal. This could cause danger or harm to workers and equipment and this is something that needs to be taken into consideration when thinking of having a tree removed.
After that a large storm or strong winds, a tree could fall down and lead to the harm of a home or other thing surrounding it. Typically a tree removal company will charge a great deal more to remove these types of trees. The most important reason for the high price is because you have to be careful to not cause extra damage. Additionally damaged trees pose a greater threat to the workers who are attempting to remove the tree.

Though it can appear like a great expense to have a tree safely taken down and removed by experts, it’s worth every penny. Allowing the professionals to handle this task for you; you avoid the risk of the self-injury or potential damage to your property or surrounding structures.

We hope this guide helps you fully understand the pricing behind tree removal and all of the various factors that come into play when receiving an estimate from a tree removal company. Remember this guideline is not something that is set in stone and everything will vary depending on your location and the number of companies you call for estimates.

Follow These Pest Control Tips For Crickets

Crickets can be real pests, particularly because the chirping can get annoying. Crickets also create damage to plants, seeds of grain crop, stored tubers and fruits, and baler twine. When they enter the house, they might damage clothing, furniture upholstery, draperies, etc. since they are extremely fond of cotton, silk, wool, and even rayon and nylon.

Mole crickets days

They also eat on paper products. Crickets can be controlled by using pest control insecticides like bendiocarb (Ficam D), chlorpyrifos (Dursban, Duration, Empire, Engage), diatomaceous earth (Answer), propoxur (Baygon), diazinon, pyrethrins, or resmethrin. Drione or Boric Acid and additional dust products can be used to treat wall voids and crawl spaces. Granular bait like Larvalur or Niban can also be used both indoor and outdoor. Some basic outdoor insecticides that can be used are; cyfluthrin (Tempo), cypermethrin (Demon, Cynoff, Cyper-Active), Ficam W, or Plus, propetamphos (Safrotin) lambda-cyhalothrin (Commodore), or permethrin (Dragnet, Flee).

One way to control crickets is to prebait before they take over the lawn. A chemical treatment program started early enough is also effective. Maxforce Granules is an effective pre-bait chemical that is sprinkled around the yard before a rain. Crickets feeding on these granules would die immediately. However, this is effective only if the crickets have not yet established themselves in the yard. If there are cricket nests already, regular chemical treatment once a month for at least three months is necessary. Orthene Turf WP and Talstar Granules are other popularly used products for controlling crickets. These pest control chemicals are also available in concentrated liquid form, dust, wettable powders, and aerosol forms.

To keep mole crickets from entering the house, avoid the use of bright lights outside since crickets are attracted to bright lights; seal any cracks in the around doors, windows and in the walls and floors; keep the area in and around the home dry and clean since mole crickets prefer moist environments; ensure that low-growing vegetation is planted at least 12 inches away from the house; sprinkle cricket baits available in the market; sticky traps can be used to trap crickets, which can then be flushed down the toilet or destroyed; take the help of a good pest control business if the problem with crickets is uncontrollable.
