Spotted Lanternfly comes to Lancaster

large spotted lanternflyYou probably have heard about the Spotted Lanternfly by now, and although beautiful to the eye, these insects are deadly to trees.  Starting last year, the SLF was reported to be sighted in Lancaster County, in areas such as Ephrata, Lititz, Denver, and now in the greater areas surrounding Lancaster City. Dominion is no stranger to tackling new pests, in fact we were one of the first companies to go after the infamous ‘Stink Bug’, which wiped out a third of PA’s crops in 2010.  We are currently offering treatment to trees and homes for the Spotted Lanternfly, so if you are seeing these creatures, please call our office today to reserve a ‘spot’ in our schedule for a treatment: 717-393-7879.

Dominion Pest Control Offers Wildlife Services

Lancaster, PA…..Locally owned Howard’s Exterminating Services (Manheim, PA) has decided to join Lancaster’s Dominion Pest Control, bringing wildlife management services to all of Dominion’s customers in Lancaster and York Counties. Dominion’s owner, Gregory Pettis–native of Lancaster, says the move will greatly increase the value of service that the local company provides. “We have been asked for years by our clients to remove pesky critters such as skunks, squirrels, raccoons, snakes, possums, bats and the like, but since we didn’t have the licensing or training, we turned those customers over to Howard’s. Jeremy Howard, local wildlife management expert and owner of Howard’s Exterminating, has 17 years experience in the pest control industry and has extensive knowledge on taking care of the area’s most difficult pests. He is looking forward to giving oversight to Dominion’s Management program and is excited about being a part of a team of technicians that have an average of fifteen years experience in General Pest Control in structures and yards to control indoor/outdoor insects and small rodents such as mice, rats and voles. “I think it will be fun to use the experience I have to help Dominion’s current clients and train their staff to be able to do what Howard’s does best,” Jeremy proudly exclaims. Dominion welcomes Howard’s customers and looks forward to providing them premier pest services.

Dominion Offers Green Pest Control!

Nature-Cide® logoDominion’s Award Winning Team now offers ‘Green’ Pest Control, featuring Nature-Cide® all natural, non-toxic insecticide/pesticide.

Dominion’s owner, Greg Pettis, decided to offer the Green Pest Control Program after encountering the new all natural line of pesticides from Nature-Cide®. “We had tried ‘Green’ products in the past, only to be disappointed,” Pettis admits. “It took a lot to change my mind, and Nature-Cide® did it.” Pettis says the company is using the all natural line of products on pests such as spiders, centipedes, fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, ants and more. “Products we are using on the perimeter from Nature-Cide® even repel mice, rats and snakes. Nothing we have ever used before could do that.”

Dominion says some of the benefits include reduced application restrictions and runoff concerns. Another obvious application benefit is the great smell the new products offer, such as cedar, cinnamon and clove oil. “Everyone loves the smell, and I think our technicians are really enjoying not coming home smelling like chemicals at the end of the day.” Dominion also is offering the Nature-Cide® line of products in premixed spray bottles for fleas and ticks that can be used on animals, furniture, or flooring and an insect repellent spray great for ticks and mosquitoes.

York Daily Record: Stink Bugs Difficult in York Co.

Teresa McMinn, writer for York Daily Record, included Dominion in her story, Stink bugs difficult to deal with in York County. She elaborates on Dominion’s owner typical workday: “Gregory Pettis’ description of his workday sounds more like a combat scene in an action movie. ‘We’re really rocking and rolling,’ he said and talked of a ‘seek-and-destroy mission’ to kill stink bugs. ‘You really have to study the habits and know your enemy.'” She also made reference to Greg’s comment about Dominion’s success with stink bugs: “In 2006 … it was just me,” he said. “Now, we’re up to eight”. For great information on stink bugs, watch the Stink Bug FAQ video.
