There’s a reason The Bug Man Inc. recently celebrated its 38th anniversary in the pest control business: Our team of professionals is always striving to deliver the best in pest control products and services to your home or office.
One of our most successful products has been Thermal, Acoustical & Pest Control (TAP) Insulation, which is an innovative product that offers an environmentally responsible insulation with thermal and sound deadening properties. Aside from all the benefits that go beyond typical insulation products, The Bug Man has made TAP insulation available to its clients primarily due to its unique method of pest control.
The National Pest Management Association estimates that termites cause $5 billion in property damage each year. That’s because they are, literally, insatiable – they eat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So structural damage can occur rapidly.
In Arkansas, the probability of termite infestation is considered moderate to heavy, which means the potential for property damage also is significant. A trusted expert in termite inspection and termite control in the state since 1976, The Bug Man wants property owners to know the importance of an effective prevention and control program.
While bed bug infestations were common in the U.S. through World War II, they were basically wiped out with pesticide use. Around the late 1990′s, they began to pop up again here and in other Western European countries. And in the latter part of the previous decade, continued outbreaks led to more widespread public concern.
Experts contribute the resurgence of bed bugs to increased immigration and travel from developing countries as well as federal restrictions on the use of certain pesticides. While they traditionally may have been viewed as a third-world problem, bed bugs definitely have gone global.
