Protecting Your Family From Pests Since 1974!
“Values Customers like family.” “Guarantees treatment by experienced professionals.” “Willing to be chased by wasps for your safety.” Sound familiar? If you’ve received customer service from us, then it does! If you haven’t experienced our services yet, we would like to offer you the best pest control service possible. We believe in building long-term relationships through superior customer service. To show you that our clients agree with our mission statement read what they have to say about our Certified Termite & Pest Control company in customer reviews.
In an online review site for service providers called Angie’s List, Mary F. stated that a Certified Termite & Pest Control member “was right on time and explained what he was going to do inside and outside the house. He was very responsive to my concerns and made suggestions on how to resolve future pest problems.”
After treating her property, Lucretia Johnson, from Madison Point Apartments was very please to inform Certified Termite & Pest Control that she has “NOT had one request from the resident for pest control!”
Praveen V., from Dallas, Texas, posted an explanation on Yelp about how other companies weren’t able to meet his needs. “We have gone through so many companies who had been ineffective and unwilling to tackle the challenge in an affordable manner. Their sales team always claims they will take care of it and you sign
up for this annual contract, but once you are in the contract they don’t want to do anything about it. And you are kind of stuck until the next year.“
Praveen’s response to pest companies changed after he signed up with Certified Termite & Pest Control. He stated in a Yelp review that his neighbor had referred him to Certified Termite & Pest Control. “Certified TPC’s team assured me they would be there. Sure enough…Wasps began showing up inside our home. I called Certified and they did honor their commitment as promised,” he continued “more importantly the Certified Pest folks are there to come back if I need anything else. Their customer service team is extremely nice and friendly.”
Certified Termite & Pest Control provides pest treatment with your needs in mind, just as we did with Kaia V.
“I had originally scheduled my appointment on a day before a huge storm was going to come through, but the folks at CT&PC were able to rebook me for a day that was likely to be followed by drier days. Apparently the spray needs to soak in for 24 hours with no rain in order for it to really take. Since they sprayed, the number of mosquito bites I’ve gotten on a daily basis has decreased from about 25 to maybe 3. Pretty effective.”

Something has been sucking blood from your skin, and it’s not a tick! Bed bugs are parasitic insects known for feeding on animal and human blood–bed bugs can survive for more than a year without feeding! Though we cannot extinguish bed bugs world wide, Certified Termite and Pest Control wants to prevent you from getting bed bugs in your home.
Have you spotted a reddish-brown insect crawling around your home, about 3/16 – 1/4 inches long? It’s definitely not a roach. Bed bugs may not be as long and disgusting as roaches, but do not be fooled by their harmless look because they can bite.
Don’t let bed bugs bite you while you sleep, eat, watch TV, or travel. Bed bugs don’t have a preferred time to feed, they will bite as soon as they sense your heat. Bed bug bites may be mistaken with mosquito bites or rashes and usually do not require serious medical attention, but if you become seriously infected make sure to talk to a dermatologist.
Do not ignore those unexplained brown spots on your bed sheets. Those funny spots are blood stains from being bitten and positive proof bed bugs are in your home. Look carefully through your pillow cover, the corner of your mattress, and under the bed frame. If you notice blood stains, get treatment for bed bugs before they control your sleeping schedule!
It’s easy to ignore bed bugs when we don’t see them. Their size allows them to hide in the seams of a bed, chairs, couches, curtains, and even in the head of a screw. Make sure to check in electronic appliances, such as the opening of a DVD player or the corners of the paper container from your printer.
A bed bug is the last thing you want from a friend, but before you let a guest sleep in your home be cautious and ask them about their bed bug history. This will prevent you from having future pest problems. After your guest leaves, either wash the bedding on the hottest wash and dry setting or trash the used sheets right away.
If you aren’t able to prevent bed bugs from infesting your home, contact a professional Pest Control exterminator. Our company, Certified Termite and Pest Control can give you a cost estimate after we inspect the infected area. Bed bugs don’t wait to bite, so don’t wait to call!
We work in the following areas: Austin 512-676-0828, Dallas and Fort Worth 972-852-2847, Houston 713-878-0182, and San Antonio 210-727-5990.
Copious amounts of mosquitoes are still buzzing around Texas as the heat lingers on. There has never seemed to be any rationale as to how mosquitoes choose whom to bite – until now. Tech Insider, a website of all things technology and science, put together a list of seven things that influence mosquitoes to bite you.
1. Blood type O tends to attract more mosquitoes.
2. Pregnant women – because of the extra heat they produce.
3. Having alcohol in your system.
4. Certain body smells attract mosquitoes while others repel mosquitoes.
5. Skin microbes – “people with more types of bacteria living on their skin were less attractive to mosquitoes.”
6. “Mosquitoes like people who emit more carbon dioxide”
7. Lactic acid produced while working out is released through your sweat is attractive to mosquitoes.
However, Tech Insider, notes that the studies were done on several different types of mosquitoes, so it depends on what type is near you. See the article for details on all of the studies used.
At Certified Termite & Pest Control, we know just what is needed to lower the number of mosquitoes at your home. Get the mosquito protection you need as the Texas heat sticks around.

When most people think of Pest Control, they think of the “exterminator” who applies big clouds of toxic chemicals. While this image was fairly accurate many years ago, the Pest Control industry has changed dramatically:
1. The 1st major change was through regulation and the banning of the most “toxic” and “harmful” chemical products such as DDT, diazinon and dursban.
2. The 2nd major change was a movement within the industry to the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). There are several key elements to IPM:
> Minimize the use of chemicals through targeted chemical application (focusing on crack and crevices where insects live and breed).
> Focusing regular service on the exterior of structures where most pests originate, which will pro-actively keep them out of the structure and minimize the required use of chemicals inside.
> Utilize non-chemical treatments such as sealing up entry points, placement of monitoring devices such as glue traps, and reducing food and water sources.
3. The latest change is the creation of “effective” green and organic products. The products vary widely. Some are truly “organic” and are made of things like orange peel oil extract while others are more “green” in nature like baits that minimize chemical exposure.
Many pest control companies have created Green pest control programs by utilizing the above changes. Unfortunately, like most industries now utilizing the “green” term for marketing purposes, there is a lot of different “shades of green”. Some programs only utilize Organic pest control products, while others focus more on inspection and treat with chemicals only when necessary.
What is the right “shade of green” for your property? My personal opinion is that good sense should prevail. You should always look for a professional company that practices IPM in all their programs. Then it really depends on your tolerance to pests. If you do not want any pest issues, then a true Organic program is probably not right for you. This does not mean you go back to “clouds” of toxic chemicals. There are many products produced now with chemistries targeting only insects and have little to no effect on mammals (they focus on the exoskeleton of insects). In addition, a professional company can utilize baits and target their treatment with minimum chemical application. Although the programs can vary, below are some basics that they should all include.
A good “green” program should consist of the following:
1. Inspections: Always start with a thorough inspection including monitoring stations to find the source and to learn where to target treatments.
2. Conducive Condition reports: provide information/feedback that describe areas that need to be fixed to reduce potential pest problems such as high moisture around the perimeter of the structure due excessive watering, trash areas that are not clean or overflowing, gaps around windows or doors that insects can enter through.
3. List specific products: the Service Ticket should show specific products that were used. If you have concerns about the toxicity of any of the products, the company can send you the product label or should be able to answer any questions. Some pests (like fire or carpenter ants) can be difficult to control with organic products, so many “green” programs make exceptions for them, but they should still only be used in crack or crevice areas inside.
4. Establishing a partnership: IPM will not work without proper inspection, reporting, and cooperation of the property owner. Conducive conditions must be reported and remedied to minimize the pest pressure which will result in less chemicals used on site.
So ultimately the term “Green Pest Control” is not an oxymoron, but the level of green depends on the program implemented.
Per the American Mosquito Control Awareness Association, “Each year the week of June 26 is declared National Mosquito Control Awareness Week or Mosquito Week for short”. Mosquito Week was created to educate the public about the significance of mosquitoes in their daily lives and the importance of mosquito control companies, like Certified Termite & Pest Control, throughout the United States and Worldwide.
Now that the weather is warm, the mosquitoes are back in full force. Certified can help keep the amount of mosquitoes buzzing around your house to a minimum. Protect your family, pets and livestock from mosquitoes by requesting a high-quality pest prevention system from Certified. We offer pyrethrum or pyrethrum-based products derived from the chrysanthemum flower, which are approved by the EPA and non-toxic to people and pets.
