Frequent Pest Questions
Let the experts at Gladiator Pest Control help you with any questions that you may have.
The answer is purely simple. If you see just a few ants or just one mouse, those few ants or one mouse have a whole family of buddies lurking where you can’t see them. If you have even a slightly visible problem then you have a problem. Left untreated, you could have a crisis.
Our first lines of defense are Synthetic Pyrethroids. Originally derived from East African chrysanthemum flowers, They are widely used as home and garden insecticides along with uses on pets and livestock, mosquito control, treatment of transport vehicles, and for treatment of ectoparasitic disease. Their features provide a quick knockdown of insects at low rates, extremely low mammalian toxicity and improved stability in outdoor environments. They are effective against a wide range of insect and mite pests and may be mixed with other pesticides for a broad spectrum of pest control. These include aerosols, dips, emulsifiable concentrates, wettable powders, granules, and concentrates for ultra low volume applications targeting mosquitoes. Synthetic Pyrethroids obstruct the transmission of nerve impulses in insects and arachnids. Highly regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency, Pyrethroids are one of the least acutely toxic insecticides to mammals because they are quickly deactivated by metabolic processes. They are approved for homes, schools, nursing homes, kitchens, bakeries, laboratories, meat, poultry and egg processing and packaging plants and more.
As a substitute to synthetic pyrethroids, Gladiator offers “Eco Friendly” pesticides. Eco Friendly pesticides encompass a natural blend of natural cedarwood and organic plant oils and essential food ingredients.
