Residential Pest Control In The Woodlands
Green Pest Guys love working with homeowners to implement Integrated Pest Management techniques to prevent and eliminate pest problems. IPM includes common-sense measures like keeping a clean kitchen, sealing cracks and crevices in your foundation, and putting tight-fitting lids on your outside garbage cans. It pairs that with our eco-friendly products that are lower in toxicity and better for you, your family, and your pets. The fundamental principle of IPM is to be effective against pests while minimally impacting you, your local wildlife, and the environment.
Many of the pest-control products we use are derived from natural, organic sources, including rosemary, thyme, and wintergreen, and botanical-based products derived from chrysanthemum flowers and the tobacco plant. Many people wonder if our eco-friendly approach works. We – and our customers – are excited to say yes! Our products are highly effective against pests and have very little impact on you.

Commercial Pest Control In The Woodlands
Our commercial pest control in The Woodlands is very similar to our residential pest control. The process starts with getting to know you and your property, the pests you're concerned about, signs you have seen that you have pests, and where you have seen them.
Then we'll inspect the inside of your facility. Our highly trained service technicians will look for hot spots where pests are known to live, especially in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, or other "wet areas" in your business. We also keep an eye out for any signs of rodents, which could bring fleas and ticks into your establishment.
On the outside of your facility, we treat three feet up the sides of your building and five feet out from your walls. We want to create a barrier that discourages and prevents pests from entering in the first place. We'll also keep an eye out for spider webs and nests of mud daubers and hornets on the exterior of your building.
Follow-up visits happen every four to eight weeks to keep the pests out of your business. We come back on this schedule because we know how crucial pest control is to your livelihood. With certain pests, it's essential to prevent infestations before they start to maintain your operating license. For between visits, we give you a binder so you can record any sightings of pests, where you saw them, and when.

How Dangerous Are The Scorpions In The Woodlands?
The most common scorpion in The Woodlands is the striped bark scorpion. It's tan to yellow with two dark stripes down its back, and it grows up to three inches in length. These scorpions are typically found under stones, piles of yard debris, wood, or mulch, though they can also hide in lawn decorations, cracks and crevices in your foundation, and inside outbuildings.
Striped bark scorpion stings can be mild, or they can be very serious. On the mild end, you may only experience pain and swelling around the sting site. On the more serious side, you might have other symptoms, including:
- Muscle spasms
- Swelling of the limb
- Abdominal cramps
- Tightness in your chest
- Nausea and vomiting
- Fainting or passing out
- Shortness of breath or wheezing
- Anaphylactic shock
Since scorpion stings can be severe, it's important that you seek medical attention promptly following a sting. For scorpion control in The Woodlands, after you've received medical treatment, call Green Pest Guys.
Why Bed Bugs In The Woodlands Aren't Only Found In The Bedroom
The name bed bug tends to give people a false impression of these pests. Bed bugs feed on blood, and while they often seek out sleeping victims, they anywhere people are coming and going. That includes:
- Churches, temples, and mosques
- Schools and daycares
- Medical facilities like hospitals and doctors' offices
- Retail stores
- Public transportation
That's because bed bugs are the ultimate hitchhikers. They can't jump or fly, so they climb onto your clothes or belongings and wait for you to carry them home. Once they're there, they may establish a primary residence on your bed. However, as the infestation grows, they'll make their homes wherever they can find a spot to hide, including:
- Upholstered and non-upholstered furniture
- Curtains and drapes
- Piles of clutter
- Closets and dressers
- Inside electrical outlets
- Behind baseboards
