Pest Control During COVID-19

How We’re Addressing COVID-19


Pest Control is Essential to the Health and Safety of the Community

The health and safety of our clients and community are our top priority.

McDonald Pest Control is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. Following the CDC Guidance for Businesses on best practices for social distancing, we have altered a number of our services to maintain and protect the health of our employees and our customers.

Pest Control services are essential in the effort to promote public health. Recently, the pest control industry was designated as an “Essential Service Provider” as outlined in the Department of Homeland Security CISA document dated March 19, 2020. Our goal is to protect public health by providing an essential service to homeowners and businesses.

Commercial & Residential Customers

We know our commercial business clients are being hit very hard with limited hours, full shutdowns, or limited access. Additionally, our residential customers are spending more time in their homes. To continue to ensure your business and home remains pest-free, we are modifying our commercial service and residential offerings in the following ways:

Providing Exterior-Only Service

  • Commercial – We will service the exterior, focusing on entry points, perimeter treatments, wiping webs from the establishment and baiting for seasonal pests.
  • Residential – We will wipe webs from the house, treat insect entry points around windows and door and treat the perimeter of the home to create a second barrier. We will also use bait in the yard and finally a second Bait when needed in the outer areas of the yard.

Wearing Gloves

Our service professionals are wearing a new pair of gloves for each account we service and then discarding the gloves when each account’s service is complete. In some cases, this may mean changing gloves more than once.

No Physical Contact

With the customer’s verbal approval, our service professional will complete the service without the customer having to touch the handheld device. If an interior service is required, our service professionals will wear a new pair of gloves and appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Our service professionals currently wear long-sleeve shirts and pants to further minimize exposure.

A Message to Our New Customers

As a new customer of McDonald Pest Control, we have made a commitment to you to service both the inside and outside of your home. We understand that having someone in your home during these times may be a concern. That is why McDonald Pest Control will return within 90 days to do the interior portion of your new service. We thank you for your patronage and trust in McDonald Pest Control.

McDonald Pest Control’s commitment is always to the health and safety of our customers and partners. We will continue to update this page with new information as it is warranted.
