ABOUT BROCKSTAR PEST SERVICES

As a local company, we know that we can handle every pest that Texas has to throw at us. Our founder Brock Anderson is certified by the Structural Pest Board of Texas, and holds over 20 years of experience as a Texas pest control specialist for industrial, commercial, agricultural, and residential clients. Our on-staff consultant is a Ph.D. Entomologist with 30 years of experience solving the toughest infestations.

While large pest control chains often give their residential customers a “one-size-fits-all” treatment plan, BrockStar applies scientific expertise to your pest issue and only recommends the treatments you truly need. Our goal is to save you time and money by treating right the first time, so you can get back to enjoying life. Bugs gone. Brock on.

WHY CHOOSE BROCKSTAR?

Not all pest control firms are created equal. If you’re searching for the perfect people to keep your space safe from all types of creepy-crawlies, it’s a good idea to know what to expect from the best.

Firstly, any pest control company you consider hiring should be prepared to provide you with pre-service instructions. This means informing you of any preparation you will need to do prior to the services being performed. Such pre-service might include clearing specified areas, cleaning, removing pets, etc. BrockStar always provides pre-service instructions, so your space will be ready to go when we arrive.

Additionally, you should expect that your pest control services firm will arrive on time. If for any reason there is a delay, we will always inform you of the delay and expected time for arrival. Our customers are always provided with an option to reschedule the appointment if the new time no longer fits their schedule. That being said, we are rarely delayed – we understand that your time is valuable, and strive to arrive at the time scheduled for service.

We believe that a professional appearance is also of importance. If there is pesticide dripping down the side of the equipment, there is a good chance that it is going to drip across your floors, as well! When you call BrockStar, you can expect our technicians to provide a clean, neat appearance, and to ensure that our equipment is always in the best condition possible.

We are a family-owned and operated company, and care deeply about the health of your family and pets. At BrockStar, we treat your home as if it were our own. We have pet-friendly and organic options, to take care of pests while keeping your birds, dogs, cats, and even kids, safe and healthy.

Our client-centered program begins with a full inspection of your home or office, and the surrounding property, to discover how and why pests are invading. We provide you with a detailed plan with a range of solutions for your existing pest problems. After discussing the options with you, we implement a strategy to address the current situation, and prevent problems from recurring. While we also provide traditional pest control techniques, our team specializes in the use of physical and mechanical methods that are safe to the environment.

In response to the demand by our residential and commercial customers for green solutions, our Integrated Pest Management (IPM), also known as Integrated Pest Control (IPC) is a broad-based approach that integrates practices for economic control of pests. IPM aims to suppress pest populations below the Economic Injury Level (EIL). The FDA defines IPM as “the careful consideration of all available pest control techniques and subsequent integration of appropriate measures that discourage the development of pest populations and keep pesticides and other interventions to levels that are economically justified, and reduce or minimize risks to human health and the environment. IPM emphasizes the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms.” IPM allows for safer pest control, including the management of insects, plant pathogens, and troublesome weeds.

Along with providing a professional treatment that is applicable to your needs, you should also expect your pest control services firm to provide post-service communication, along with recommendations. This should involve the technician informing you of what has been done, where the treatment has been performed, and why. Additionally, the technician should always inform you of any precautions that you may need to take, and answer any questions you might have regarding the relevant treatments. Along with verbal communication from the technician, you should expect to receive a service report detailing all of the above information, as well as contact information. At BrockStar, we follow up to make sure your problem has been completely solved. We won’t “bug” you, but we care about our clients, and will go out of our way to make sure the job was done right!

Use Lavender

Some people use lavender to deter pests (including scorpions) and there seems to be some evidence to support this. Planting lavender around your house is a helpful tool to keep scorpions away.

Seal Your Home

One of the best ways to keep scorpions out of your home is to make it difficult for them to get in! This means using a silicone caulk on all of the cracks where they might be able to enter. Being thorough is the key, since they can easily enter through even the tiniest of spaces. Be sure to caulk around window frames and around all of the cracks in the foundation. Look for gaps in your baseboards and around window frames. The better job you do of sealing your home, the more difficult it will be for the scorpions to enter.

Safely Protect Your Pets

Dog owners can provide protection to their pets from mosquitoes and other biting pests with approved repellent products. These products are commercially available from veterinarians, and can protect against mosquito bites, which can transmit WNV and heartworms, and tick bites, which can transmit Lyme Disease. Cat owners should keep their pets indoors during the summer months to avoid exposure to mosquitoes.

Avoiding Mosquito Bites

Take extra care to use repellent and protective clothing during evening and early morning, or consider avoiding outdoor activities during these times. Install or repair window and door screens, so that mosquitoes cannot get in your home. Place mosquito netting over infant carriers when you are outdoors. At least once or twice a week, empty water from flower pots, pet food and water dishes, birdbaths, swimming pool covers, buckets, barrels, and cans, as these can be breeding grounds for mosquito larvae. Get rid of outdoor items that hold water, such as old tires, tin cans, buckets, drums, or bottles. Check for clogged rain gutters and clean them out. Check for containers or trash in places that may be hard to see, such as under bushes or under your home.
