What QualityPro Means...

You hear QualityPro in our advertisements, on our trucks and on our brochures.
Many ask the questions, what is QualityPro?

QualityPro is the mark of excellence in pest management designated through the The National Pest Management Association. This program is designed to separate QualityPro companies from the competition and increase the overall professionalism of the industry. QualityPro members inform consumers about QualityPro, through the marketing tools provided are encouraged to hire smartly, train correctly, and upgrade professionalism through the training and education of service technicians and sales personnel. Here at Craig Thomas Pest Control, we perform background checks, reference checks, maintain a drug free workplace, practice environmentally responsible pest control, employ highly trained employees, offer clear warrantees and service agreements.

Children spend countless hours in school buildings and on surrounding fields and playgrounds. Thus, the management of pests in such a sensitive environment demands special care. QualityPro schools companies, while meeting QualityPro qualifications, recognize that pests in schools need to be managed in a careful and environmentally responsible way. Each QualityPro Schools company is required to provide reduced-risk IPM services in schools. Additionally, their technicians and sales people who service schools are experienced, trained and tested on school IPM techniques above and beyond state requirements. Craig Thomas Pest Control cares about protecting children in the school environment.

Mice are not Nice!

The most common winter invader is the house mouse. The house mouse looks for a warm, cozy place to spend the winter. Mice enter your home, business or building by squeezing through spaces as small as the diameter of a pencil. Once inside the home, they become destructive. They damage and destroy your home by chewing wires, which can cause fire along with eating and contaminating your food spreading disease. Mice carry over 20 different pathogens of human disease such as a salmonella, Hantavirus and asthma to name a few.

Mice usually live only for a year, but if all their offspring were to survive and reproduce at a similar rate, one pair of house mice have the potential to produce more than 500 young within a year! It is wise, to begin control earlier than later. Another shattering figure is the amount of droppings a mouse will produce. In one year, one mouse produces up to 18,000 droppings along with depositing hundreds of micro droplets of urine to mark its trails.

If mice become problem in your home or business, call your pest professional. Craig Craig Thomas Pest Control implements several methods in dealing with mice. These methods may include using our Heppa Filter Vacuums to vacuum feces, removing,disinfecting old insulation and replacing with T.A.P. Insulation or performing exclusion work to prevent mice from getting inside. Leave it to the professional to determine the best way to carry out an effective rodent control program in your home or business that will protect your health, home and property.
