Bed Bugs: Creatures Of The Night!
Since the dawn of civilization, there has been a common legend among every culture. There is one terrifying story of sinister creatures that hide in the shadows during the day and stealthily steal into the safest confines of our homes, by night. They exist with one purpose, to feed on human blood. They have mysteriously returned from perceived annihilation by shear will of patience. At times seemingly invisible, these demonic abominations of nature that can only be sustained through blood feedings…There ARE Vampires among us.
Where Did Bed Bugs Come From?
Over the last 10 years, Bed Bugs have reappeared from what was previously thought to be extinction. They have quickly become the scourge of hoteliers, hospices and homeowners. Learn More
Once we spot the problem our trained inspectors, with the support of a board-certified Entomologist, will correctly identify the pest so that we can develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Our trained and certified applicators will visit your home and treat target areas where pests commonly nest, feed, and enter your house. If any pests are visible to the eye, such as spiders, we will treat them on sight and brush down cobwebs. If other insects are found, Hulett will place an emphasis on baits and gels on the interior to control these pests, though making precise spray applications may be needed for larger infestations.

Should an infestation occur, the inspector will offer a curative program for the affected area, preventive for the adjacent areas, and monitoring for the entire facility. Bed Bugs may be re-introduced by anyone at any time. The key is early recognition of a hazard by partnering with hotel staff to vigilantly monitor the entire facility. Secondly, we must employ a preventive options in known, susceptible areas to inhibit an infestation. And finally, curative applications for those areas determined to have an active infestation.
Hotels, hospitals and businesses of any repute are managed and successful based on reputation for providing a safest and enjoyable environment to their patrons. Our society is replete with litigation but few would argue the validity of a claim for emotional or physical distress from an encounter with bed bugs in a commercial facility.
Bird Control Services
Most people think of birds as beautiful and free in their ability to soar above the earth and gently touchdown wherever their hearts desire. Truth is, birds are wild animals and they can become a nuisance when they decide to take up residence on or in your building or business. Birds also present significant negative publicity, health risks & costs to your business; in spite of their public acceptance.
Bird control measures should be left to the professionals – laws and local ordinances are often changed to protect certain wildlife species, and harming nuisance birds may put a business owner at risk of fines or legal trouble.
Pest birds on a ledge of your business structure or bird droppings covering a sidewalk in front of your business, droppings running down a wall or signage give the impression of unsanitary, run down facilities. Nesting materials can short circuit your signage. Poor or shorted-out signage will hurt customer advertising exposure. This can also signify to your customers that you are not concerned about their health and well-being.
Pest bird droppings and nesting material can carry over 60 different transmitted diseases. Some examples are Histoplasmosis, Sarcosporidiosis, Listeriosis, Salmonella, Bird Flu, and Meningitis. These ailments can be life threatening to the very young, the elderly or those with depleted immune systems. In addition to these serious conditions, accumulations of droppings can be very slippery and result in accidents to patrons or staff.
Cleaning up on a daily or weekly basis leads to wasting money and exposing employees to health risk. If you calculate the time, materials, supplies and the work your staff is NOT doing – the cost can be huge. The potential cost of accidents is HUGE with respect to workman’s compensation costs and potential law suits. Bird droppings are also very acidic and will corrode building materials. Without a proper solution, restoration or complete replacement may be needed. Dropping and nesting material can clog drains causing damage during heavy rains. Bird droppings can also damage and contaminate products, causing businesses to shut down.
The great news is that Hulett Environmental Services offers many proactive humane ways to protect your property, employees and customers. There are physical deterrents: used to physically block birds out or from landing on specific areas, which include spikes, netting, electric track and bird slope. Visual and sound deterrents, which utilize bird’s visual and audio senses, include flash Tape, bird diverters and sonic bird repellers. Bird repellents and repellers such as using the birds sense of touch, taste and smell to deter them from the area.

Fly Control Services
Are You Aware of the Many Diseases a Fly Can Carry?
Flies, with good reason, are considered among the most vile and disgusting of creatures. Often portrayed in cinema to signify death, disease or putrid, decaying foulness, these are exactly what flies gravitate toward and congregate around. Flies are often an annoyance to customers and staff; they signal unclean conditions to health inspectors and auditors and can attract unwelcome negative attention from the media.
Flies are also the single greatest transmitter of disease in the world. Flies are known to transmit such life threatening diseases as Staphylococcus, Shigella, Salmonella and E-Coli 0157-H7. They can also transmit Rickettsia, Viruses, Protozoa and Worms. Each time a fly lands it immediately defecates and regurgitates an enzyme (volidrop) and part of its stomach content to dissolve food. A flies’ gut is a caldron of over 33 million bacteria percolating in their stomach. If a fly deposits just 1 bacterium on a piece of food, within 24 hours it will multiply to over 280 TRILLION bacteria – FAR MORE than necessary to cause food poisoning.
Flies Are Also Prolific Breeders And Some Can Lay 30-100 Eggs Which Hatch In Less Than 48 Hours.
Beginning with an intensive inspection of your facility, your Hulett Technician will work closely with you to develop a strategy to identify contributing factors to any potential problem and provide you with a recommendation on modifying the habitat to make it less hospitable to flies.
