While Eden has a variety of services for your home that protect you from pests, one of our most common and convenient pest control services is our Enhanced Service Program.
Enhanced Service Program
Eden's Enhanced Service Program (ESP) protects our clients and communities from pests year round. This program consists of every other month services that are each customized to the seasonal pest trends of the Pacific Northwest. Using our integrated approach, not only is the ESP effective in controlling pests, but it also helps prevent and reduce pest populations, reduces the use of unnecessary pesticide usage, and makes your home a healthier more efficient environment! Average pricing for this service is $85 per service (every other month) and there is an initial setup fee that usually starts at around $275. These again are average prices and vary according to the size of your home, specific pest concerns, and severity of any infestations. For more accurate pricing for your home, click here.
Here's how our Enhanced Service Program works:
December/January: ESP Customers will receive a service in December or January when Rodents are always active and spider egg sacks begin to yellow and are more easily found. In this service dormant oil is used to reduce the number of honeydew producing soft bodied insects during their dormant overwintering stage. This service keeps your plants protected and healthier in the spring and prevents ants and wasps in the spring and summer months.
February/March: During your February or March our ESP focuses on inspecting and treating the Dripline area of your home. The dripline area is where many pests – like rodents, spiders, birds, millipedes, and earwigs - overwinter in the soil along the foundation and are beginning to emerge. We also sweep away spider webbing and spider sacs that are visible on the exterior surfaces. This treatment reduces spider populations and prevents pests from emerging in warmer temperatures.
April/May: ESP customers can expect an inspection and treatment around the Barrier (10 ft perimeter from foundation) of their home. Now that temperatures are warming up pests like ants, rodents, spiders, wasps, ladybugs, box elder bugs, flies, and stink bugs are becoming more visible. As activity increases, our attention focuses on pests further out from your structure to stop them before they enter. These emerging insects can be extremely bothersome, and prove the value in our fall preventive applications.
June/July: During these summer months our ESP moves our protection perimeter even further out to what we call Lines of Approach - checking walkways, landscape areas, fences, electrical lines entering the structure etc. to find new infestations that are moving closer to the structure as they enter your property. Your technician will be inspecting for signs of rodents, ants, spiders, ground beetle, rove beetles, and other occasional invaders.
August/September: As summer starts to transition into fall our ESP starts to move it's protection and prevention closer to the home again with the inspection and treatment around the Barrier (10 ft perimeter from foundation) of your home, looking for ants, spiders, millipedes, rodents, many other occasional invaders, and the overwintering insect activity that begins in September. This area becomes more attractive to pests as water sources are fewer and natural foods are in shorter supply as the season comes to a close.
October/November: During these fall months ESP focuses on inspecting and treating the Dripline area of your home for ants, millipedes, spiders, rodents, overwintering insects. This is the time when the pests are trying to get to the most favorable overwintering sites increasing pressure close in to the structure.
*Eden's Promise to ESP customers: If you have pest issues that continue in between/after your services just let us know, we will return to address your concerns at no additional cost!
