TERMITE CONTROL

Termites cause more than a billion dollars in property damages every year. Their presence normally goes undetected until they have caused substantial amounts of damage.
Termites naturally break down plant and wood material. They travel through soil to any source of cellulose which they consume from the inside out. That’s why it is so important to stay protected even if you do not have any signs of termites. There are many species of termites that we commonly deal with, but in San Antonio subterranean termites are the primary target with our soill and baiting programs. The professionals at Nova pest Control have been protecting families and their homes from termites for over 13 combined years.

WILDLIFE CONTROL

Our wildlife control services includes trapping and removing unwanted wildlife from your home or business. We offer relocating of wildlife such as raccoons, possums, skunks, squirrels, snakes, ring tails and birds. Our services also include dead animal removal, sanitizing attics and crawlspaces as a result of animal droppings, and sealing holes so wildlife can’t re-enter the home or business.

Rat & Mice Control

Mice and Rats not only damage and destroy materials by gnawing but they also are important as vectors of disease. They are prolific breeders and are very wary of objects placed in their environment making them difficult to control. Nova Pest Control is committed to identifying signs of infestation thru inspection and the integrated pest management system to control and remove rodents from your home or business.

Termite Control

Termites cause billions of billions of dollars to homeowners each year. The worst part of termites is that they can cause extreme amounts of damage around the house without you even realizing it until the repairs are in the thousands of dollars. Nova Pest Control offers both preventative baiting and termite elimination to protect families’ largest investment.

Bedbug Control

Bedbugs are ectoparasites to humans but will also attack poultry and other mammals or birds. They were introduced to the US with the early colonies. They have been documented as far back as 1336 BC in Egypt. Bedbugs are excellent hitchhikers and can lay up to 1-5 eggs per day. Bed Bugs can survive up to 1 year with a single feeding, making them one of the top 5 pests to control. Therefore, controlling bed bugs is normally a multi step process that requires a Pest Control Operator . At Nova Pest Control we have a detailed process that has been successful for over 13 years to insure that we safely and effectively protect your family from these blood feeding pests.

Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes are well known for their pesky bites, but they are very important as vectors of numerous human diseases such as West Nile Virus, malaria, yellow fever and encephalitis. Mosquitoes are normally separated into 3 groups based on where and how they lay their eggs. After a blood meal, a female will lay her eggs on water or in semi-dry places such as moist soil. Controlling mosquitoes starts by controlling and eliminating standing water on site locations. Nova Pest Control reduces the chances of mosquito infestation with strategic control techniques to control the larvae and eggs cycle of mosquitoes.

Pest Control

Our residential service includes a thorough inspection for pests, rodents and termites. We inspect the structure of your home, your yard and fence line for any structural invaders looking to gain entry into your home. Nova Pest Control will maintain a pest barrier up to 3 feet high and up 10 feet from your home eliminating any infestations from inside your home. All residential programs are backed with a contractual warranty through the life of the program.

Ant Control

Ants can be very difficult to control. They are one of the most abundant groups of insects. They normally live underground in colonies but will invade structures for food and/or water. There are about 700 different species of ants that occur in the US. All ants species have different biology and habits so knowledge of each species is necessary for effective control. Controlling ants inside a home or business can be extremely overwhelming! At Nova Pest Control, we understand these pest biology and habits to safely and effectively keep your family protected from these structural invaders.

Spider Control

There are over 35,000 species of spiders worldwide! All spiders are predators. The female does not usually eat their mate after copulation contrary to the popular belief of the black widow and widow spiders. Spider control is a multi step process with the most important step being the inspection. Nova Pest Control understands that to control spiders, a proper inspection of the property and correct identification of the spider, along with proper sanitation, must be done to maintain and control spider infestations.

Wasp Control

Stinging pests include wasp, hornets, bees and yellow jackets. Their stings can be very painful and sometimes even deadly as some people are allergic to their stings. Nova Pest Control guarantees to always inspect areas where these stinging insects commonly gather and remove the nest.

Scorpion Control

If scorpions have entered into your home, they are usually seeking out basements, crawl spaces, and other small hidden places. While scorpion stings don’t cause too much harm to adults, the effects could be severe with the elderly and children. If a scorpion is seen in the home, it is important to contact Nova-Pest for a free inspection of the house. We will inspect the property to ensure the pests are not unintentionally being brought into the home through firewood or boxes. Once we’ve inspected the infestation, Nova-Pest will begin treating the problem and monitoring the situation to ensure your home becomes a scorpion-free zone. 

Beetle Control

Beetles can come into the home through a variety of ways. You’ll most likely be dealing with fabric-infesting beetles, food product beetles, or wood-destroying beetles. Since there are a variety of beetle types, the process of removing them from your home can vary. It’s important to contact a Nova-Pest professional to accurately identify the type of beetle, then allow us to start taking steps to eliminating your pest problem. 

Fly Control

There are a large variety of types of flies. These pests are especially dangerous because of how often they land on bacteria ridden surfaces. Your Nova-Pest techincian will assess your fly situation and develop a program unique to your situation for your home or business. 

Cockroach Control

Cockroaches are one of the most important pests of households and commercial structures. They carry many common diseases and have been known to cause allergic reactions in some people. There are over 4000 species of cockroaches in the world but only a few inhabit structural dwellings.Depending on the species, they can lay about 4-60 eggs. Controlling cockroaches often requires multiple treatments to successfully eradicate them from a given structure. At Nova Pest Control we have developed a successful integrated pest program to keep your family safe from cockroaches and the harm they can inflict on our community.

Call us for our entry point protection to allow one of our techincians to come inspect the house and seal up any points that could be potential entryways for pests. It’s your job to relax; it’s ours to combat critters.

Nova Pest Control guarantees to always inspect areas where these stinging insects commonly gather and remove the nest.
