Dual action kills cockroaches where they hide


Vendetta® Plus combines two modes-of-action to kill German Cockroaches where they hide and the development and reproduction of cockroaches.


Control Dust Mites

Dust Mites: Spray with a sweeping motion same as when you are applying for fleas or ticks, to surfaces where mites congregate such as mattresses, box springs, headboard, floors, carpeting, and baseboard. Spray surfaces until damp. Apply on mattresses as a spot treatment to mattress seams, edges, buttons, and tufts of bed only. You do not use directly on pillows, bed linens, or cloths. Do not saturate the mattress and do not treat entire surface area of mattress. Allow mattress to dry thoroughly before replacing pillows and/or bed linens, this will usually take a couple of hours.  A lite mist is much better and you will get better results without wasting a whole lot of money by over spraying.

 How to Control Carpet Beetles

Carpet Beetles: Apply with a sweeping motion as a surface spray to carpet, rugs, closets, baseboards, upholstered furniture, and around edges of carpet.

Places where animals are kept such as stables and dog parks usually have water which rats will seek. To make sure that a rat and his friends don’t find a hospitable source of water and food at your house, get a Rat and Rodent Control Kit 2 at ePest Solutions. This is a great kit for smaller rat populations and domestic rat control. It comes with three stations with traps, and a 4lb pain of rodent bait.

Mosquito Control - Industrial Mosquito FoggersMosquitoes are a common pest and are found in various parts of the world. They have four life cycles: egg, larva, pupa, adult.
