When you have a problem with pests, you want solutions fast. Quick, expert service has once again earned Muskoka Pest Control the title of Muskoka’s Best, and with a new retail location, customers can now get the right advice and the right product to solve all their pest control problems.
“Every situation is unique,” explained Mark Sampson, owner of Muskoka Pest Control. “We try hard to give everybody the best service; it’s not always about a buck. They come here for the right advice and that’s what we give them. It’s about integrity, and doing an honest job.”
Sampson is a licensed exterminator with almost 25 years’ experience in the pest control business and said the pest control business has changed over the years.
“People are afraid of the problem — pests — and they’re also afraid of the solution — pesticides. We struggle on a regular basis to find a balance … I live in this community too and drink the water, I don’t want to misapply pesticides.”
Muskoka Pest Control provides full service and products for your home or cottage to rid your property of carpenter ants, bedbugs, mice, wasps, hornets, spiders, earwigs, cockroaches, flies and fleas.
Bedbugs have received a lot of press lately, and Muskoka Pest Control has been called in to deal with bedbug infestations at cottages in the Muskoka area. However, Sampson said the main pest he deals with is carpenter ants.
“Carpenter ants are a big problem because they potentially cause a lot of damage and people want to protect their investment,” said Sampson, who also offers preventative maintenance, such as construction pre-treatments and wood preservation.
The Cottage Care Program is regular pest control maintenance popular with many home and cottage owners. It includes spring and fall maintenance of pests with any between-visit pest problems taken care of at no charge. Complete, regular service for restaurants, hotels, apartments, retail buildings, industries, warehouses, offices and nursing homes is also offered.
Plus, a full line of air fresheners and odour control systems are available and the multi-use Konk systems can keep washrooms smelling clean and fresh or keep flying insects at bay.
Sampson thanks his return customers for the success of Muskoka Pest Control, and said, “It’s a testament to the kind of service we deliver.”
