Parker Ford residents commonly see ants, cockroaches, fleas and spiders throughout the year. These pests can enter your home in a variety of ways like hiding in delivery boxes or entering through cracks around doors and windows. Seeing a single ant, cockroach or flea always means there are more in areas you can’t see. Spot treatment with over-the-counter sprays may kill visible bugs, but only a trained professional pest control professional can eliminate your pest problems completely.
Organic Pest Control
Go organic and choose the most natural pest control solution available! You’ll receive a smart, effective and environmentally responsible service each time we arrive at your door. We carefully select natural products that provide effective, targeted pest control solutions. These scientifically engineered low toxicity products are more effective and biodegradable to minimize the impact on our environment.
Bed Bug Control
A common myth about bed bugs is that they are a result of uncleanliness. However, bed bugs can infest any home because they are notorious hitchhikers. Bed bugs have made a resurgence in the last few years due to increased international travel, shipping, and pesticide resistance. Once they’re on clothes or in baggage, these pests will quickly infest your home or business because they are prolific breeders. They prefer living in cracks and crevices of furniture and mattresses and they move easily through wall spaces to infest many rooms in a structure. This is why they are a nightmare for hotels, condos and apartments. While there has been no proof that they spread disease, they do feed on the blood of their hosts by biting the skin. Depending on the location and severity of the infestation of your Berks county property, we offer several effective bed bug solutions:
- Bed Bug Organic Treatment – This non-chemical, biopesticide is one of the safest treatment options available. The organic treatment provides protection against future bed bug infestations for up to 3 months, typically at half the cost of heat treatment.
- Bed Bug Heat Treatment – Eliminate 100% of eggs, nymphs, and adults with one heat treatment. Heat penetrates walls, furniture, and mattresses. This treatment does not use chemicals and the room can be used within 24 hours of service.
- Bed Bug Steam Treatment – Steam treatments are 100% effective, eliminating adults, nymphs, and eggs. Steam requires extensive treatment of furniture and mattresses. Typically requires 2 services for full control. No chemicals used during this process.
- Bed Bug Conventional Treatment – Bed bug pesticide application is ideal for a small infestation that is caught in the early stages. The pesticide used is low toxicity, low odor, and may require regular treatment to gain full control.
Rodent Control & Removal
Rats and mice are disease vectors that contaminate every surface they touch. In homes, they are typically found in kitchens and bathrooms near sources of water and food. Effective rodent control involves population reduction with the use of traps, baits and tracking powders. Rodent stations are placed around the perimeter of your home to ensure no future rodents move in. After the rodents have been successfully removed from the home, we focus on effective sanitation and rodent exclusion to keep them from re-entering the building.
Protect your home from termites before the damage occurs with regular subterranean termite treatments. We’re state certified and have performed hundreds of wood destroying pest inspections. Our non-repellent termiticides and baits are effective at stopping termite colonies where they start. Termites are highly social insects which communicate by contact with one another. Our non-repellent above-ground and in-ground treatments are transferred by treated termites throughout the colony like a virus, eliminating your termite colony.
Wildlife Control & Removal
Wildlife removal is increasingly important because urban sprawl reduces wildlife habitats. In many cases, wildlife species co-exist with their human neighbors leading to situations where action is needed to protect the wildlife, your family or home. Patriot Pest Solutions offers over 20 years experience in wildlife removal and exclusion. We’re fully insured and licensed with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, National Wildlife Control Operators Association and the Pennsylvania Trappers Association. All of our certified, state-licensed technicians are fully insured and ready to eliminate your wildlife problem.
Raccoon Control & Removal
Raccoons are often found near sources of food and water outdoors. Fruit trees, trash, pet food and gardens are all great food sources for raccoons. They make their nests in attics, chimneys and garages, often causing significant damage. Raccoons are excellent climbers and once a raccoon is on a roof, it can rip open vents or find construction gaps in soffits, which will lead the raccoon into the attic. Once inside attics or walls, raccoons will destroy insulation for nesting materials and contaminate the area with urine and feces. It’s important to catch them early, before they multiply and the problem intensifies. Do not attempt to capture raccoons yourself! Raccoons are very aggressive and strong animals. When threatened, raccoons have been known to attack people and pets. We have years of experience with humane raccoon removal practices and can help you fix your problem fast!
Squirrel Control & Removal
Squirrels may seem cute, but their destructive chewing can cause significant damage to your home. It is important to catch them early, as they routinely damage electrical wiring. You don’t resort to extreme measures. Our technicians are state-licensed and specially trained in humane squirrel trapping, removal and exclusion services. We are able to capture squirrels inside the structure, as well as squirrels entering the structure. After the traps are set up, we will begin exclusion work which includes inspecting the structure for weak openings and sealing them by closing gaps or installing the appropriate screens.

Spotted Lanternfly Control
The Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive plant hopper which are spreading rapidly and present a serious threat to gardens, orchards, and woodlands in Parker Ford. Lanternfly nymphs feed on small plants and vines in the spring using their piercing mouthparts to suck the sap out of stems, leaves, and even the trunks. After maturing into adults, Spotted Lanternflies begin feeding on trees. Infested trees develop weeping wounds which leave grayish or black trails along the trunk. In fall, adults lay egg masses on host trees and nearby smooth surfaces like outdoor furniture, stone, structures and vehicles. Early detection is the key to protecting crops such as apples, grapes, hardwoods and stone fruits on your property. Our treatment uses a systemic pesticide which is applied to the roots of the plant and absorbs into the tree itself. This treatment kills the Lanternflies as they attempt to feed. and prevents further infestation.
