What is Your Pest Risk?

It is natural for pest risk to fluctuate throughout the year, so it's important to know the risks and be prepared to win the fight against pests. Find out your pest risk score for cockroaches, rodents, large flies and small flies for your area and industry by simply entering your zip code. This predictive tool, made in partnership with the University of Minnesota, shows the risk of a pest infestation in the next 30 days by using an algorithm that includes proprietary and non-proprietary data including weather patterns, demographics and geographic data.
