Q: Why should I use a pest control company and not do my own pest control?

Answer:

Doing your own pest control is not fun.  Getting into the crawl space of your home may not be easy and sometimes difficult in terms of access.  Spending time researching the active ingredients of products is worse than reading IRS manuals.  Knocking down wasp nest may entertain the spectators, but for you it could sting a bit.  We do not discourage you from doing everything you feel comfortable doing, but if you have a question, please do not hesitate to call. We will be happy to discuss options along the way.  Our technicians can solve your pest control issue.  We have training in insect behavior, that allows us to target a specific insect and eliminate it.  We also have access to products that are not available to the general public.  At Capitol Pest we can and we want to solve your pest issue.
