What Aptive does better than most other pest control companies is focus on environmentally safe pest control and provide eco-friendly options, no matter the customer, location or pest problem. Each service contract begins with a thorough initial inspection where technicians look for the water and food sources for each pest problem.

Then, if necessary, your Aptive professional will apply products that are biodegradable and cause as little environmental damage as possible.

However, Aptive’s unlimited re-treatment satisfaction guarantee is one of the best in the industry, giving you that peace of mind that may not come from another company.
