    The Benefits Of Ongoing BACO Training

    Last updated 1 month ago

    S. Alan Harlan, Associate Certified Entomologist

    Technical Director, BACO Exterminating Services

    We’ve all heard “there’s no substitute for experience” or “experience is the best teacher” or even “future successes are the result of past failures”. While I believe that there is wisdom in these examples and many more like it, I also believe that it is important to be able to benefit from other people’s knowledge and experience to be able to supplement your own.

    A successful training program begins with acknowledgement that training comes in many forms. It may come in the form of classroom lecture, regular discussion with others in a similar position, trade journals, or hands-on learning. It is not debatable that people acquire knowledge through various means. Some may be content to “read the directions” and implement an action plan accordingly. Others may benefit from open discussion with colleagues that may have had similar experiences, and are now helping to better the organization with their insight. I would speculate that most would describe themselves as a “hands on learner”, who achieve mastery through modeling the behavior of the teacher. When implementing a training program, it is important to provide an appropriate place for each of these learning styles as well as incorporating others.         

    As Technical Director for BACO Exterminating Services, it is important to establish a consistent training program that benefits the most people. There must be a purpose for the training, and it must be effectively communicated. Remaining vigilant to outside influences, such as new technology or regulatory changes, it presents opportunities to share information with colleagues within your organization to promote consistency. Training is also viewed as a developmental tool that not only benefits the hearer, but also the organization as a result of well-trained representatives. Positive growth creates opportunities within the organization, so it is the responsibility of the management team to prepare others to transition into these opportunities before they are created. Planning for growth by investing time to create tomorrow’s leadership team is vastly important to our continued success. Our on-going training is not gauged by the content of the material discussed, but by the tangible results of producing “home-grown folks” that represent BACO Exterminating Services to the public and impact our industry in a positive manner.  Quality training is foundational to our company culture. It makes it possible for us to train people to train people. For solving your pest problem, contact one of our well trained representatives today.

    Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation In Your Home

    Last updated 1 month ago

    With bed bug infestations on the rise across the country, it is important to protect yourself and your family against the dangers of these highly bothersome pests. If you do find yourself facing a bed bug infestation, a professional extermination company will help you treat and remove the problem. At the first sign of bed bugs in your home, it is essential to contact an extermination company right away. Here are some of the signs of a bed bug infestation.

    Bite Marks

    Bite marks are one of the telltale indicators of bed bugs. Commonly, bed bug bites will appear as small red marks along the legs or arms of a person. These bites are characterized by their placement in straight rows. If you or a family member is experiencing mysterious bites, chances are you may have a bed bug problem.

    Molted Skin

    Molted skin is another sign of a bed bug problem. As bed bugs mature, they shed their exoskeletons so that they can continue to grow. These exoskeletons are brown, translucent, and typically shaped like a bed bug. As a bed bug colony expands, you may notice more and more molted skins around your home.

    Fecal Spots

    If you have a bed bug problem in your home, you may notice fecal spots on your sheets or around your bed. These spots are created from the excreted waste of the bed bug. Commonly, these spots are dark brown or black in color and are found in groups of ten or more.

    BACO Recommends That Your Entire Home Be Protected Against Termites

    Last updated 2 months ago

    If you discover termites in your home, it is vitally important that you call a pest control professional immediately to completely eliminate the infestation. Termite colonies can be very populous, and the visible insects you first see probably represent only a small fraction of the total number of wood-eating pests that are living in the walls of your home. You will need to have a whole-house termite treatment because:

    Termites Quickly Spread Throughout Your House
    If you notice termites in one area of your home, they have probably tunneled through the wooden house frame into other areas. Termites in the bedroom can rapidly burrow through the walls into the basement, kitchen, or bathroom. Spot treatments may kill the termites in one room and keep them from returning, while the insects elsewhere continue to vigorously consume the wooden structure of your house.

    Termites Reproduce Rapidly
    Even if you catch your termite infestation in its early stages, a spot treatment is no guarantee that you will eliminate your pest problem. A queen termite can lay tens of thousands of eggs in just a few days, and these eggs hatch in a mere two to four weeks. The termite colony can continue to multiply as long as the queen and king are alive.

    Termites Can Nest in Hard-to-Reach Spaces
    Full termite treatment usually involves digging a trench all around the affected home to apply insecticide. This step is necessary because termites can nest deep under the soil near the foundation walls, and the queen may lay her tiny, almost invisible eggs in any spot. Because it is impossible to pinpoint where the termites have nested, exterminators must apply the termite-killing treatment all around the perimeter of the house.

    At Baco Exterminating Services, we offer whole-house termite treatments designed to destroy the entire colony of insects, so that they do not continue eating the wood inside your home’s frame and walls. Our methods are so thorough that we offer termite clearance letters for real estate closings to certify that your home is termite-free. We also offer FREE warranties with our termite work … up to $1,000,000 for approved homes. Schedule an inspection today by calling us at (770) 409-8882 or schedule on-line .

    We are Confident in Our Quality Work.
