We’d like to thank you for stopping by Safety Fumigant Company’s new website. While our old website was fine, we decided to upgrade it and do what a pest control company does all of the time: take out the bugs.
But we do so much more than just deal with bugs. Sure, bugs can be a problem, but there are other critters that people want out of their homes and businesses. Nobody wants squirrels destroying their home, and a single mouse can ruin a business’ reputation. Termites can cause thousands of dollars in damages, and roaches…well, roaches are just plain gross.
Let’s take a look at the many different types of pests we deal with every day as we provide our pest control services. Each takes special care, and we have the equipment and experience to make it happen.
Mice can be cute, when you see them in a pet shop. Even rats have a certain charm, when you’re certain they aren’t carrying a disease and you know that they won’t follow you home.
But when they are in your house or business, you want them gone, and you want them gone soon. Both mice and rats are disease carriers, and sometimes they can be perfectly healthy but transmit the disease to humans. They’re incredibly destructive to a home, gnawing through wood, mesh, wiring, and plastic. (Because they are rodents, their incisors are constantly growing and they often gnaw on stuff just to wear them down.) Of course, it’s also horrible when they get into your food, because a) they steal your food, and b) they defecate in your food. It’s just disgusting all the way around.
Like we mentioned above, mice and rats can ring the death knell of a business, especially if that business is a restaurant. The fact that a customer saw just one rodent — or even signs of a rodent — will get around town fast, and that customer certainly isn’t going to come back to that business anytime soon.
Why go with professionals instead of do-it-yourself methods? We’re much more thorough, and we can take care of the problem and make sure they don’t come back. Plus, do you really want to deal with all the traps and poisons? Probably not. Read more about our mouse and rat control services.
Wildlife is great…when it remains in the wild! Creatures such as squirrels and raccoons can be fun to watch when they’re in a park, and sometimes even when they’re in your yard. But when they start building a home in your home or business or attacking a pet that’s in your backyard, it’s time to make them go away.
In the past, this was often taken care of with poison or a .22 rifle. But most of our customers — and we have to admit, we ourselves — have a bit of an affinity for these mammals. Unlike mice and rats, they’re not scurrying around on the main floors of a home at night; most squirrels and raccoons will only make it as far as an attic. That’s why we use Have-A-Heart live traps to secure the animals and relocate them to an area outside the city. Sure, it’s a little extra work, but everyone seems to feel better about it.

Some bugs are awesome, and some bugs are horrible. The problem is, once they get in your house they all end up being horrible if you find them in your bed or crawling on your arm.
We have to take a specialized approach with every type of bug, insect, and spider we’re mentioning here, and that’s why it’s so important to call a pest control service that knows what they’re doing. Here are a few of the creepy-crawly problems we handle.
While most insects are just annoying or gross, termites cause billions of dollars in damage a year. Termites that eat your home or business have a special enzyme in their gut that allows them to digest cellulose in your home’s frame. We’ve been dealing with them for over 130 years.
The problem is that there are dozens, if not hundreds, of termites in your home for every one that you actually see. Never think that it’s just a small termite problem, because there’s no such thing. Find out more about termite control right here.
Mosquitos are horrible. Not only do they suck your blood, but they inject you with an anesthetic so that you won’t feel the bite and anticoagulants so that they can suck up your blood more easily.
If that wasn’t bad enough, they’re also big carriers of disease. While we don’t have to worry about malaria around here much, you’ve most certainly heard of the West Nile Virus. The key to killing mosquitos is making sure they don’t breed in the first place, and we can help. Find out more about mosquito prevention right here.
Ticks are horrible. Absolutely horrible. They stand out on the ends of plants and grass blades with their forearms out, waiting for an unsuspecting mammal to walk past. Then they grab on, find a soft spot, and start sucking blood. If that wasn’t bad enough, ticks are huge disease carriers. Two of the most prominent diseases they carry are Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
The key to stopping ticks is to kill the current generation so that the next generation can’t even happen. We have lawn sprays that can ensure the ticks leave you, your children, and your pets alone. (To be perfectly clear, they’ll leave you alone because they’ll be D-E-A-D dead.) Read more about our tick prevention methods here.
Neck in neck with ticks for “most disgusting insect in Massachusetts” are cockroaches. While cockroaches might not give you Lyme disease, they will most certainly give you the willies.
Nobody wants roaches in their home or business, and we want to help you feel good about going into your bathroom in the middle of the night when the lights are off. Be sure to contact us at the first sign of trouble before it gets worse.
In general, ants are beneficial in the environment, cleaning up messes that other creatures ignore. We’re talking about dropped food and other bug bodies. But ants in your home can be quite bothersome, and if one gets in, they can all get in. We can help.
