Will the person who places the trap go into my fenced yard?

The majority of the traps are placed in front yard fruit trees or on trees that hang over a public walkway. We do not enter backyards without leaving a notice in advance or talking to a resident of the property beforehand. If you received a notice but were unable to speak to a Pest Detection Specialist about a trap being placed, please call us with any concerns or special instructions about entering your property.
