It’s Your Sanctuary

For over 40 years, Landmark Pest Management has protected synagogues, churches, and temples of every denomination from pest damage. Wildlife undermine the integrity of buildings, rodents cause fires by chewing through wires, and insects expose visitors to a multitude of diseases. Shepherd your community with the help of Landmark’s effective Integrated Pest Management program.

Pest Control for Your School

We proudly partner with schools to ensure student health. Each Integrated Pest Management program is tailored to reduce reliance on pesticides, with 24-hour monitoring designed to catch emerging issues before they become a problem.

Landmark ensures a clean, pest-free environment using research-based green technologies. We first employ pesticide-free methods such as insect traps, light traps, air curtains, structural exclusion, and habitat modification. Preferred green methods include natural products such as silica, dust formulations applied to inaccessible wall voids, and targeted bait gels applied to cracks-and-crevices.

Nuts About Pest Management

We admit it. We’re more than a little crazy about safety. It’s the reason why protecting public health by engineering the ecology of your building is our mission. Did you know that nut products are used in many pest control formulations? Because of the growing prevalence of nut allergies and sensitivities, all Landmark treatments are peanut and tree nut-free.

Goodbye Church Mice

Rodents in houses of worship are common. They can enter through holes as small as a 1/4″ and carry diseases that put your community at risk including hantavirus, salmonella, and flea-borne illness. Landmark performs top-to-bottom inspections. We locate every hole where pests enter and seal them out.

No More Bats in the Belfry

Bats are often found in churches, having entered through gaps as small as a dime. Bat colonies may be present in an attic or wall void for years before they are detected. Detection often occurs when a single bat loses its way, following light and air currents into the human occupied spaces of a building. When one bat is found in your building it is important to check for the presence of a colony.

Landmark Pest Management’s urban wildlife managers are certified in bat colony remediation and the humane control of bats. Our preferred green method for removing a bat colony involves the installation of one-way doors called “excluders” that allow the bats to leave, but not return. Once the bats are out, gaps are sealed and structural deficiencies are corrected to prevent bats from returning.

We coordinate with all relevant public health agencies to test any bats we capture for rabies to ensure the safety of your community. Research indicates that wild bat populations living in caves have a low occurrence of rabies, with 1 out of 1000 (0.1%) being infected. Bats that are found behaving abnormally, such as entering human-occupied spaces, fluttering around on the ground, or initiating contact with people have a much higher incidence of rabies, with up to 15% being infected.
