Cockroach Control

What are Cockroaches?
These flat bodied bugs are generally red, brown, or black in color. The 3 most common species are the German, Oriental, and Wood cockroaches. The German cockroach has the most run-ins with humans. In addition to transmitting diseases when they come in contact with food, they also cause allergies in some people. The cockroach is one of the hardiest insects in nature: they can live a month without food, can live a week headless, and can hold their breath for 45 minutes.

How do I get rid of Cockroaches?                                                  One of nature's hardiest insects, cockroaches can be a real nuisance and a handful for business owners to tackle on their own. Due to a large number of cockroaches having pesticide resistance, a multiple-chemical approach is normally required. We will advise you on how to remove competing food/water sources, and we will spray/bait your business.

Ant Control

What are Ants?
Ants are social insects that live in large colonies. Unfortunately, this is a nuisance for business owners. Ants will live inside, around, or under a structure and are constantly seen inside looking for food. Two of the most common ants customers see are pavement ants and carpenter ants. Pavement ants are very small and may be seen in great numbers around paved/poured areas since they like the cool dampness under cement. Carpenter ants are generally larger black ants that may destroy wood to build their nests. 

How do I get rid of Ants? 
Nobody likes ants in the kitchen! We will come to your business and come up with a treatment plan that works for you. Depending upon the species of ant and where they are located, this may involve spraying outside to stop them from coming in and/or spraying inside and baiting. In addition to managing active infestations, we also provide exterior year-round preventative spraying and pre-construction spraying to stop ants and other insects from living under slabs, blocks, drives, etc.

Bee & Wasp Control

What are Bees and Wasps?
While not all species or members of a species are aggressive or sting, they can cause injury to people and damage to your home by entering through the walls or ceiling. The most common stinging insect and "bee" call pest control companies receive is for yellow jackets. They are aggressive and frequently enter buildings. They are easily identifiable by their yellow and black "waxy" bodies.

How do I get rid of Bees and Wasps?                                            Oil-based and aerosol products are irritating to bees and wasps, so when applied to nests located in or on structures, business owners run the risk of driving these insects further inside. We use a dust-based product to reduce this risk. When a customer has a honey bee problem, we work with local beekeepers to see if the nest can be safely removed and relocated before a chemical treatment is done.

Bed Bug Control

What are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are reddish-brown and about the size and shape of an apple seed. They are excellent hitchhikers on clothing, shoes, and luggage. People and their guests bring bedbugs to a business without realizing it. These small insects feed on the blood of people and animals, mostly at night. Voracious feeders, they can consume up to three times their own weight in blood at one feeding. Waking up with bites is normally the first sign of an infestation. 

How do I get rid of Bed Bugs? 
Call us for an inspection and estimate. Our experienced service technicians will come up with a treatment plan that works for you.

Termite Control

What are Termites?
These small, white "grub-like ants" are wood destroying insects and are commonly found during real estate transfers and remodeling. The most common species in Ohio (and most of North America) is the eastern subterranean termite. Termite colonies often are composed of several million insects that will spread out and start eating the wood in structures when they find them. They are usually found in basements and crawlspaces.

How do I get rid of Termites?                                                     
After discovering termites in a structure, our technicians will apply a chemical treatment to the structure. A continuous chemical barrier will be made in the soil around the structure to kill off existing termites and prevent new ones from coming in. In addition to treating active termite infestations, we also offer preventative pre-construction and termite shield services to stop termites BEFORE you have them.

Mice & Rodent Control

What are Mice?
These unwelcome visitors are usually one of three species of mice: the house mouse, the deer mouse, or the white-footed mouse. These species are nocturnal and can become a real nuisance to any business. They venture into structures looking for food and shelter.

How do I get rid of Mice? 
Keeping mice and rodents out of your building can sometimes be an ongoing process, rather than a one-time fix. We offer several different baiting, trapping, and exclusion services and will come up with a plan to reduce the number of rodents entering and living inside a structure.

Your Pest Control Partner for:

Mosquito Control

What are Mosquitoes?
While Mosquito season is generally considered to be May through October, anytime the temperature averages 50 degrees or above mosquitoes will be seen. They are most active during dusk and dawn. In addition to being a nuisance and stopping people from enjoying their yards, they also can be a carrier of several diseases.

How do I get rid of Mosquitoes?                                        Mosquitoes breed in standing water and rest on the underside of foliage during the day. We will help you come up with a treatment plan involving both the reduction of possible breeding and resting sites and chemical treatment to reduce these populations.

    We have been delighted with Lucrest's services.  They have been reliable, courteous and thorough.   As a bed and breakfast, our schedule can be difficult to accommodate since we want to avoid disturbing guests for routine maintenance.   Lucrest has been more than accommodating in that regard.  They communicate well about the timing of their service calls and work quickly and efficiently when they are here.   We also love being on a regular schedule with them, so it's one less task for us to remember.   We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
