Aardvark Pest Control professionals use their knowledge of IPM, pest lifecycles, habits, and the conditions that affect different pests. Our non-chemical approach focuses on limiting pest entry ways, attractants, harborage, and food. This approach provides the most effective, longest lasting pest control.
