Preventive Pest Control Plan

Preventive Pest Control
When it comes to pest control, prevention is just as important as elimination. Preventive pest control ensures that your home or business is thoroughly protected from insects and rodents. At Ledford’s, we offer convenient quarterly pest control maintenance plans which will take the stress and guesswork out of keeping your home or business pest free.


Ledford’s has helped residents and business owners throughout Charleston, Columbia and Florence shield their homes and businesses from pests for almost 50 years with our quarterly preventative pest control services. Our experts will visit your home or business each season in order to identify risk factors and complete routine pest management services.

Our technicians utilize top-of-the-line technology and products to ensure that the source of any infestation is eliminated and that any possible entry points and risk factors are addressed. Prevention also includes education; we always provide our clients with the information they need to keep their properties pest-free.

A Trusted Pest Control Process

Ledford’s approach to preventive pest control is effective and efficient and has been refined over the many years we’ve served this region. We’ll begin with a comprehensive inspection of your property in order to ensure that you’re currently pest free and to identify any potential problem areas. If we do spot any issues that may make you more susceptible to termites or other pests, we’ll give you advice on how to correct them. Next, we’ll explore your pest control options with you and recommend a plan that is customized to your home. We’ll then carry out a treatment optimized for the particular season.

Residential and Commercial Pest Control

The preventive pest control services we offer aren’t limited to residential properties. Ledford’s also offers a full range of services for all manner of commercial clients ranging from small retail shops to large commercial buildings and manufacturing sites. Just as we do with homes, Ledford’s will optimize your preventive pest control plan based on your location and the specifics of your business.

  • Restaurants
  • Bars
  • Cafes
  • Veterinarian Offices
  • Doctor’s & Dental Offices
  • Attorney’s Offices

The Value of Preventive Pest Control

We encourage our clients to look at preventive pest control not as an additional expense but as an investment in their home or business. That investment gives you peace of mind as termites can cause substantial damage and rodents can expose you to serious diseases. The statistics are also clear that a preventive approach to pest control costs home and business owners less over the long run.

Organic Pest Control

At Ledford’s we appreciate that customers may have concerns over the chemicals we use. Homeowners may want to avoid certain treatments due to their children and pets, and businesses may need to avoid them due to their customers and employees or because of their particular operations. It’s for these clients that we offer organic preventive pest control. Organic pest control is very effective at stopping the pests common to our area and does not involve the use of any potentially harmful chemicals.

Many Different Pests

Termites are a serious concern for both home and business owners throughout South Carolina. We specialize in termite prevention and extermination and offer preventive pest control plans that emphasize termites. That said, termites aren’t the only issue that our customers have to deal with it. That’s why we offer seasonal plans that are optimized to deal with the pests prevalent during those times. We can, for instance, help you prevent the carpenter bees and fleas that are active in spring and summer along with the mosquitos that are active during those months but also into early autumn. We also prevent ants, cockroaches, flies, gnats, mice, rats, ticks, and much more.

  • Fleas: Active during the spring and summer
  • Mosquitos: Active from the end of spring until early fall
  • Carpenter Bees: Active throughout spring and summer
  • Termites: Active all year but require annual maintenance after treatment
