By now, we have all heard of the Zika Virus and its effects. Since learning this virus is headed our way, Heritage has begun searching for any and all information. Thankfully, we have learned through vendor sponsored seminars, Zika will not reach Kansas City this year.  Butwe still urge everyone to be informed.

Our team is currently searching for an EcoFriendly alternative mosquito repellent. But, until we have found the perfect product, your Pest Control Coach will help protect you and your family with standard pest control treatments .

What is an EcoFriendly Alternative?

EcoFriendly does not mean organic. It simply means we find products that work best with the environment. We want to ensure your lawn and landscape stays healthy while the problems are still being taken care of.

Information Resources

While Heritage doesn’t have all of the answers we continue to search. Thankfully, since carrier mosquitoes won’t be here this year, it gives us more time to prepare treatments. But, we want YOU to find the answers to questions such as these:

  • Do you know the symptoms of the Zika Virus?
  • Did you know, it can be transmitted sexually?
  • What everyday actions should you take to protect yourself?

The best place we have found to find up-to-date information is the CDC website. We suggest that is where you begin.
