To provide the maximum protection for a home from a pest infestation inside, the place to start is outside. Because most of the pests that invade our homes come from outside, the first line of defense is around the exterior perimeter and immediate surrounding area. A perimeter treatment is performed using a combination of contact granules, granular insecticide baits, dusts and liquid residuals depending on a variety of factors. Once the initial line of defense has been established, we turn our attention inside to determine, through an interview with the homeowner, what further measures will be required. At this time we will discuss our findings and our recommendations with the homeowner regarding structural maintenance that may be influencing pest pressure. If further treatment is necessary inside, a wide selection of active ingredients, formulations and physical pest control methods are available to best suit any given situation. Our company offers a variety of different programs, each one tailored to fit your individual and specific needs. For a maintenance program where pest pressure is low, a Quarterly service (every three months), is typically recommended. When pest pressure or probability is high, a Monthly program is typically recommended. Both programs require a one-year service agreement and include any additional treatment as needed between regular services at no additional charge. We also offer One-Time services which require no service agreement but provide no guarantee either. This service is typically reserved for customers who have a specific issue that they need addressed but do not need a regular maintenance program. Cadenhead Services, Inc. is locally owned and operated, certified, licensed, bonded and insured. By using our services the funds you spend stay in our area to recirculate into the local economy.

While most pest problems involve ants, roaches, spiders, crickets, rats, or mice, here in the Florida Panhandle, termites are extremely prevalent. And while you may not be able to see them, termites alone cause over 2 billion dollars worth of damage every year which is more than tornadoes and hurricanes combined. Knowing this, we stay up-to-date on all the latest methods and chemicals available, so that you have several options to choose from when deciding which method of termite control is best for you. Structures are similar to finger prints, each one is different. Keeping this in mind, we know that each house consists of subtle differences which require individualized attention. Based on these factors, here are some different options for termite control. Liquid-Based Treatments is a style of treatment that requires a liquid-based chemical application be made to the soil that is adjacent to the house. Depending on each homeâ€™s layout, sometimes access to this soil may involve trenching, rodding, or even drilling. We currently are using Termidor, Premise, and Alterset which has proven to be the most effective products on the market for immediate and long-term termite control.

Florida lawns are constantly under attack by extreme heat, extended periods of drought, turf damaging insects, disease, fungus and numerous varieties of weeds. The first step in bringing your lawn back to health is to understand exactly what issues your lawn has. We will do a thorough inspection and a fully detailed graph of your property. Then we will put together a customized plan to get your lawn back on the right track. Florida's climate causes bug season to persist for much of the year. It is important to only apply pesticide applications when insects are present in high numbers and to reduce use when they are not. Although preventive measures should be taken for some types of insects, broad application of pesticides when insects aren't present can also be damaging. Florida soils have unique nutritional requirements to their northern counterparts. Common store bought fertilizers deliver too much phosphorus, a material most Florida soils gets enough of.

With mosquitoes being such a prevalent issue around this area, we felt it was crucial to offer this service to our customers. Our Mosquito Reduction Service is a 7-8 month program that typically runs from April through October (can be extended from March through November depending on the weather). Mosquitoes breed in standing or stagnant water and the adults â€œrestâ€ on the underside of foliage, primarily in shaded areas, during the heat of the day. For this reason, they are most active during the early morning hours or closer to dusk when the temperatures are lower. With this is mind, Cadenhead Services assesses each situation on an individual basis. With every homeâ€™s layout being different and the surrounding foliage also being different, a thorough evaluation of each customerâ€™s property is necessary in order to develop the most effective plan for mosquito reduction. We will assess each property and all its immediate surroundings to determine what course of action would best be suited for your individual needs. In some cases, a combination of larvacides in standing water along with an adulticide application to the foliage is the best plan of attack while in other cases simply treating the surrounding foliage is sufficient. In either case, the results for this program have been overwhelmingly positive, and we are very eager to offer it to all our current and future customers.

Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspections provides important information relating to otherwise inaccessible areas of a residential building. Infrared detects extremely small but crucial differences in temperature from one area of a house to another. These temperature variations show up on the cameraâ€™s view screen as â€œcoldâ€ or â€œhotâ€ spots, which reveal hidden problems that often cannot be detected in the course of a traditional visual inspection. Although pest control experts previously conducted inspections with a flashlight and a screwdriver, technological advances include the use of infrared cameras. These cameras detect high-risk, high-moisture areas as well as heat emitted by active termite colonies. Infrared cameras allow termite inspectors to identify problem areas without invasive techniques. Some professionals use infrared in conjunction with more traditional inspection methods. Termite colonies are difficult to detect before significant damage has been caused to infested structures. The presence of one winged termite often indicates a full-blown infestation. Other signs of termite presence, such as mud tunnels or piles of sawdust and feces, only become apparent after an infested area has been substantially hollowed. Severe infestations may lead to blistered, buckling wood. In order to address a suspected infestation before damage reaches this point, it is advised that homeowners employ the services of pest control professionals. With the Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection Survey, we can quickly identify problem areas that can't be seen by the naked eye. Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection - eliminating destructive probing methods. Our infrared survey inspection will pinpoint not only hidden water leaks, current moisture damage but also energy leaks and electrical "hot spots".
