OTHER ERADICATION PROGRAMS

TERMITE ERADICATION

Termites, like any other pests, are very detrimental to your home. There are five (5) types of termites; the most common throughout the U.S. is the Subterranean Termite. Termites are often mistaken for ants, but they are related to the cockroaches.


Termites can be identified depending on their role within the colony by the following features:

  • Creamy white to dark brown/black
  • Long, narrow and oval bodies
  • About 1/2 inches long


KOJOS inspects the home to find their main nesting and breeding grounds, and determine how critical the colony has spread. After treatment, another inspection will determine of the 0% population levels has been reached. If 20 or more termites survive the colony can continue to thrive throughout your home.


Once the termites mate, another colony can begin. Their saw-like jaws will create tunnels through the wood to and from the food source.

FLY ERADICATION

KOJOS can identify the fly by their adulthood and/or larva stages , and their main resting places for breeding. Most adult flies rest around breeding areas. It is important to eliminate their breeding area to avoid further infestations as well as larva furthering into their stages.


KOJOS target adult flies directly with insecticide applications as well as fly traps, sticky traps, and other devices for indoor and outdoor populations. Baits, aerosols, and residuals insecticides are most commonly used technology for control. For the resting sites emulsifiable concentrates, wet-able powders, and/or micro-encapsulated powders with residual applications are used to completely eradicate the infestations.


It is important to keep trash receptacles clean and empty as much as possible to avoid future infestations
