Iowa-Illinois Termite & Pest Control, Inc. Davenport IA

Are the materials you use safe?

All pesticides are inherently poisonous and our state certified technicians are trained to handle them with respect to human safety and the environment. Iowa Illinois Termite & Pest Control believes strongly in choosing the safest approach to solving each pest occurrence, and of course, all materials we use are registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Do I have to sign a long term contract?

No, absolutely not!  We offer short term as needed service programs.  This allows you to call us only when you need or want service.  We also offer weekly, semi-monthly, monthly, and quarterly service for those customers who need or desire ongoing control.

Do the pesticides you use cause cancer?

No. None of the pesticides we use have any carcinogenic effects as established through pre-registration laboratory testing required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Do you utilize any non-chemical methods of control?

Iowa Illinois Termite & Pest Control practices Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which utilizes many non-chemical control techniques such as sanitation, harborage reduction, exclusion, sealing, mechanical controls and environmental management.

Does the treatment have an odor?

No. All our applications are odorless or have low-odor alternatives. Ask your Action pest professional if you have concerns about what you should expect for specific treatments.

How long does treatment last?

Treatment effectiveness varies by type of pest, likelihood of re-infestation and product longevity. Ask your account rep about your particular circumstance and they can give you a realistic estimate.

I am considering a do-it-yourself alternative. What is the bottom line on pesticide risk?

The danger of any pesticide is all about exposure. The do-it yourselfer often chooses over-the-counter products that are at a much more toxic rate than the professional materials we utilize. To compound this mistake, the homeowner is not trained in the application methods we utilize that virtually eliminate any exposure to people and pets. If you eliminate exposure, then you eliminate risk.  We do sell products for the do-it-yourselfer at our office, or we can deliver it.

Is Iowa Illinois Termite & Pest Control locally owned?

Yes, Iowa Illinois Termite & Pest Control is 100% locally owned by Earl J. Newberry and his Spouse Darlene M. Newberry.  Their sons Guy W. Newberry Sr. and Joe E. Newberry Jr. operate Iowa Illinois Termite & Pest Control with their parents. Earl Newberry started Iowa Illinois Termite & Pest Control in 1975 and we are proud to celebrate over 38 years in business!
