How we can help
Your One Two Tree Pest Free service technician understands your needs, and knows how to “think like a roach,” to develop a customized prevention plan to help you rid your home of cockroach breeding zones – safely and effectively.
Even when taking such an organic, preventive approach, however, there are times that you need treatment. But you should never accept the haphazard “baseboard spraying” of some exterminators.
One Two Tree Pest Control takes a One Two Free! approach to treatment to rid your home of cockroaches and protect your family by working from the outside in:
Two Step Cockroach Treatment
1. Exterior Elimination
In Miami, pests come into homes from the outside.
To guard against their entry, we treat the exterior perimeter of your home every 60 days using the latest non-repellent, cockroach-targeted chemistry that is effective in controlling cockroaches and is environmentally smart!
This is because it is genetically targeted to insects – becoming biologically active only after it is eaten or absorbed by the cockroach.
People, pets, and other mammals don’t “turn the compound on,” so your home is protection with safer, greener cockroach control.
2. Interior Elimination
Our goal is to treat inside your home as little as effectively possible.
We apply bait into cracks and crevices and harborage areas where the cockroaches mingle and pass the insecticide from one to the next.
By coming into your home only twice a year, we can successfully eliminate existing cockroach populations and protect your family and home against new cockroach infestations.
