As agricultural facilities have moved into the age of technology, so has the demand for pest control. Nuisance birds, flies, and rodents compromise disease control efforts and create economic losses you can not afford. Weevils and "bran bugs" in wheat and other stored grains cause your crop to be worthless at market time. Buckeye Exterminating can help! We have provided treatment programs, fumigations, grain protectants and disease disinfecting for all types of agricultural facilities. Call us today…Buckeye Exterminating can evaluate your situation and provide a professional solution.
Our Agricultural Services
A variety of products and services are available to control flies at your facility. Providing a control mechanism at each phase of infestation is the key to structural fly control.
- Reducing outside fly populations.
- Preventing fly entry.
- Eliminating flies that have entered.
Both chemical and non-chemical control options are available.
We are the bird control experts of Northwest Ohio. Bird problems occur with many different unusual circumstances. It is critical to inspect each problem site and recommend the control option that best fits each situation. As sparrows, starlings and pigeons are not protected by law, typically lethal and non-lethal options are available for these species.
Control of mice, rats, voles and other commensil rodents normally entails two goals.
- Eliminating the current problem.
- Preventing future infestations.
Trapping verses baiting pros and cons can be discussed as part of a service inspection. (For example, baiting is cheaper than trapping since it requires fewer visits. Fumigation and poison tracking powders may be valuable tools in some situations.)
Future infestation prevention can involve rodent proofing, exterior bait stations and habitat modifications. An estimate for these services can be provided as part of the service inspection.
Wheat, corn, oats or any other stored grain commodity can be fumigated with phosphine gas for the control of weevil, “bran bugs”, grain beetles, meal moth or any other stored grain pests. Cost varies dramatically from 1¢ to 7¢ per bushel ($250 minimum) depending on storage conditions and total bushels. It is normally cheaper to fumigate than take a dock at the elevator.
Empty grain bins and other storage facilities can be treated to prevent insect infestation prior to harvest. We power spray long-term residual insecticides, mixed with a vapor killer to provide long-term residual control and a vapor kill in dead spaces such as false floors and equipment voids.
Several grain protectants are available for different circumstances.
Storecide II (SDS / Label) is the most effective insecticide available. A mixture of deltamethrin and chlorpyrofos, Storecide II is a water base spray solution that provides months of insect control for only 3½¢ per bushel at full label rate.
Protect-it (MSDS / Label) dust is available for any applications where a liquid spray is not desired. A mixture of silica gel and high grade diatomatious earth (DE), Protect-it provides better control than any other DE product on the market, yet also has full approval for use on certified organic grain.
For serious disease infections such as Psudorabies, Cholesa, PURS, etc. and repopulation with SPF livestock, many vets will prescribe a fumigation disinfect over and above the normal contact disinfects that are commonly used today. We provide disease control fumigations as prescribed by your veterinarian.
Season long soil sterilants are serious labor savers in areas that require long-term vegetation control. One application in April will keep stone, gravel or bare ground areas “vegetation free” for the entire year. Parking lots, electrical substations, tank farms and industrial facilities are ideal locations for this application. We include a mid-season “follow up” inspection at every treatment site and provide any necessary “touch up” treatment at no charge.
Microbial enzyme digestant, DIGEST-IT, is available for use in liquid manure management systems. When added to manure storage pits and reservoirs, it effectively liquefies solids and eliminates odor by stabilizing the Nitrogen compounds. Stabilized nitrogen remains in a liquid state and does not "gas off" as a vapor. Higher liquid nitrogen content in the manure multiplies its high fertilizer value.
DIGEST-IT is also available for retail purchase.
