Are exterminator sprays safe?
Yes, they are safe when professionally applied by a licensed local pest control technician. Our materials have undergone rigorous testing for safety and effectiveness in accordance with each product’s label, approved by the EPA. Our pest control technicians have also been trained to follow safety procedures.
When do mosquitoes go away?
Living in the heartland has many benefits. However, mosquitoes are not one of them! They are most active in the warmer months and begin to die out when temperatures drop below 50 degrees. Year-round prevention is key to keeping your home or business mosquito free. Get rid of mosquitoes permanently when you add Mosquito Protection to your InsectaShield® package for as little as $27/month.

Why do I have bed bugs?
Cleanliness is helpful to us in eliminating pests for you. However, cleanliness alone cannot assure you won’t get bed bugs. If they can find a way into your home, they can find a food source – no matter how clean your space.
Where can bed bugs hide?
Because they are small, bed bugs can hide virtually anywhere. In beds, bed frames, and other furniture, clothing, or luggage are just a few places. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Talk to professionals at Bug Zero to learn more about our process and prevention.
What attracts brown recluse spiders?
- Stacks of firewood
- Large piles of leaves and debris
- Clutter throughout the home
If you’re hosting these unwanted guests or don’t want to chance seeing them around, Insectashield® protection with Bug Zero will set your mind at ease.

InsectaShield® is a proactive, preventative service that keeps your home free of pests like ants, spiders, mice, and termites by stopping them before they ever get inside.
