Presto-X’s proactive approach to bed bugs involves education, early detection and proven bed bug eradication methods.
Our team of technicians are trained to understand the biological and behavioral nature of this elusive pest. Our solutions to eliminate bed bugs involve combinations of the following services:
Problems with flying insects such as houseflies and blowflies, moths, and mosquitoes in rented premises are important to address.
Bees and other flying insect nests - commonly found at the building facade, in a roof structure – should be removed immediately. Flies are often attracted to trash collection points, either in a building’s basement or in outdoor areas housing trash receptacles, recycling containers and composting facilities. In most cases, protecting windows with screens will effectively prevent the entry and proliferation of flying insects within the property.
In the event that the flying insect problem cannot be permanently eliminated because of conditions conducive to pests, Presto-X offers a wide range of efficient fly trapping devices for use in indoor spaces such as basements, lobbies, stairwells, offices and kitchen areas.
In their relentless search for food, rats and mice constantly seek out structural weaknesses and will enter buildings through wall openings, open basement windows and even vertical gutters.
Presto-X recommends a dual approach, first to prevent entry through the strategic placement of bait outside the property and, second, to ensure the early detection of an infestation. Basements, attics, suspended ceilings and computer equipment rooms are all known problem areas that can benefit from appropriate rodent monitoring solutions.
By focusing on prevention, pest control measures are only necessary for acute infestations. In such cases, Presto-X deploys a wide range of discreet, access-restricted bait and detection boxes, as well as a range of treatments designed to suit the operational environment.
Presto-X offers an effective service to protect landscaped gardens, parks and green areas from destruction by voles and moles. Our Vegetation Management Services will reduce pest harborage areas on your property.
Bird pests, especially pigeons, can be a major problem for property managers as they cause damage running into the millions to a building’s structure.
Highly corrosive bird droppings destroy building facades and roofs. Nesting material frequently clogs rain gutters and drains. Moreover, tenants are disturbed by foul-smelling bird droppings on window ledges and balconies, as well as persistent take-off and landing,cooing and wing-beating. But, more importantly, birds can pose a serious health hazard.
Birds transmit harmful bacterial infections like Salmonella and histoplasmosis which can result form bird droppings, which in the absence of their host animals, can also infect humans.
Presto-X can inspect and report on the scale of a bird problem and professionally clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces. We also offer a range of pest bird solutions to suit all types of building that deter birds from approaching, inhabiting and nesting in your property.
Properties can be plagued by a variety of crawling insects including numerous species of ants, bed bugs, ticks and fleas.
Cockroaches, in particular, find that warmth, water and food scraps make many boiler rooms, private and communal kitchens a welcoming habitat for uncontrolled reproduction. It is vital to recognize the signs of an infestation as early as possible in order to prevent transmission of disease-causing germs to tenants and their pets.
In the event of an infestation, Presto-X’s pest experts have a range of state-of-the-art control methods at their disposal, selected according to the pest to be controlled and the sensitivity of the surroundings.
