Dodson Bros. knows that household pests are more than just a nuisance. Ants, rodents, roaches, and other problem pests can lead to structural damage and health problems. The pest control company states that its technicians use a comprehensive and efficient system to remove any pests from the home. Using Integrated Pest Management (IPM), the company will identify any pest issue, and eliminate contributing factors that enable unwanted pests to survive.
Dodson Bros. covers a number of bug and wildlife species to fit your pest management needs:
After the initial inspection, the technician will come up with a customized treatment plan to address any concerns. Depending on the type of pest and wherein the home, the problem occurs will determine what kind of treatment is needed. Homeowners and business can expect any of the following treatments:
Following a positive termite inspection, Dodson Bros. uses an effective termiticide called Termidor. Termidor is applied underneath and around the home. When a termite comes in contact with the insecticide, it becomes a carrier and will transmit the termiticide to the rest of the colony.
Pests are bad news for a business. That's why Dodson Bros. offers commercial exterminator services for a number of different business types. Whether it's a restaurant, warehouse, retail store, or a housing complex, unwanted pests and critters can ruin a company's reputation.

There are few details as to what a pest control plan contains. Dodson’s site simply states that it uses the Integrated Pest Management system to identify and treat pests and that the company has several strategies when it comes to managing pests. Before signing up, many customers like to know the details of what their treatment plan will contain and how often it will be implemented. While a pest control treatment plan does depend on several factors, it would be helpful to customers to have at least a general idea of what to expect.
Dodson states that its employees have the knowledge and training to treat any specific pest problem, but it does not say what kind of training or certification its employees go through. Leading pest control companies like Terminix put their technicians through rigorous certification programs like the National Pest Management Association's QualityPro and GreenPro programs.
Other companies in the industry will offer additional services alongside their pest control plans. Dodson does not offer any kind of lawn, attic, or crawlspace services.
