- What is the difference between a mice cleanout treatment and a mice treatment?
a. Mice Cleanout: Treatments include dusting all wall voids, pipe holes, mini guards (stations that hold tracking powder), rodenticides and glue boards are placed behind the stove and refrigerator. They are only placed behind refrigerator and stove because they are areas where children and pets cannot gain access too.

a. CEMIT Treatment: A maintenance treatment which is usually done monthly or quarterly. Includes inspection and treatment to all crack & crevices with gel bait and extraction for kitchen and bathroom or any other room where resident is finding infestation.
b. Full CEMIT Treatment: Includes inspection and treatment to all cracks and crevices throughout the unit including kitchen cabinets, closets, doors, window frames and furniture etc. Wall void treatments will be dusted every 12-14 inches throughout the entire unit.

After all forms are signed and returned the series of (3) treatments are scheduled. Management must be advised to vacuum all common areas daily. Educational training for management and residents can be provided.

Bed Bugs migrate on their own and can also migrate as a result from our treatment.
