SMART Pest Control: Here’s How It Works!

If you’re like most people, the thought of pests in your home is enough to make your skin crawl.

The last thing you want is for your home to be infested with bees, ants, rodents, or any other type of pest. And no matter how often you clean or how well you maintain your home, pests can still find their way in and make themselves comfortable.

However, there are some things you can do to reduce the risk of an infestation. One of the best things you can do is invest in a smart pest control system.

Our Anticimex SMART pest control system is a proactive approach to pest management. It uses sensors to detect rodents in your home and then sends an alert directly to your pest professional.

This technology is safe for humans and pets, and it's been shown to be effective at controlling and eliminating rodents.

If you're concerned about mice or rats in your home, our SMART pest control system will get rid of them once for all without having any worries about leaving harmful chemicals behind


What is The Anticimex Smart System?

Anticimex SMART is not just a mousetrap, it’s a system. An intelligent, electronic, rodent control system unlike anything currently on the market in the United States.

Our system operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year providing you with continuous peace of mind. By constantly monitoring and instantly reacting, it prevents costly infestations in an eco-friendly way.

Our team tracks pest activity in real-time so we’ll know before you do.

Whether it’s rodents on the interior or exterior of your home, Anticimex SMART devices use sensors to track activity and catch rodents without the use of toxic baits.

Each device will be placed in high-risk areas where mice and rats tend to spend their time without being noticed.

Then, our SMART devices will speak to each other via the built-in cellular network technology WITHOUT the use of cameras, sending critical information regarding the activity and catches to a central data hub and to your pest professional so there is no need to contact us.

Anticimex SMART Home System Install Experience

At American Pest, our top priority is always the safety and satisfaction of our customers. That's why we take a customized approach to every job, starting with a thorough consultation and inspection.

This way, we can be sure that we're addressing all of your pest control needs and that you understand exactly what we're doing and why.

In the case of our SMART Pest plan, this initial consultation is especially important. We want to be sure that you understand the use of smart devices to control pests in and around your home.

With that in mind, our experts will take the time to answer any questions you have and make sure you're 100% satisfied with the proposed plan of action.

Just like we did when we visited one of our great partners, Erin Smith. Here’s what she said:

“The American Pest team was very clear about what they were going to do while at my home. Both inside and outside, how they were going to accomplish that, and how long they would be at my home.

The American Pest staff went above and beyond to get to know my family and ask questions which reassured me that I made the right decision"

Once we have addressed all your concerns, will we begin the treatment, so you can rest assured knowing that your home is in good hands!


1. Compressive Inspection

Before starting any work, our pest experts will conduct a thorough inspection of your property. This initial inspection will help to identify any potential entry points for pests.

Once these entry points have been identified, our experts will then start to seal them off with foam and mesh material.

This will ensure that no pests can enter your property in the future. In addition to sealing off entry points, our experts will also provide you with advice on how to further prevent pest problems in the future.


2. Interior and Exterior treatment

All our preferred care plans treatments start with a perimeter spray around the foundation of your home. This barrier helps to keep most common crawling insects out, including ants, spiders, cockroaches, and crickets.

Our pest expert will also look for any other pests inside and outside of your home. If there's any other problem that needs to be taken care of, we'll address it properly.

This could be from de-webbing to removing a wasp nest found around the gutters.

By creating this barrier and addressing any other immediate concerns, we can make sure your home stays pest-proof!


3. Placing SMART Devices

Then, our pest expert will place smart devices in strategic places to effectively catch rodents on their tracks.

We will pay special attention to those high-risk areas where mice and rats tend to hang around.

The smart devices will use sensors to determine where and when rodents are active.

Additionally, these smart devices will alert your pest expert when there is an activity so that we can address the issue as soon as possible. This will help to keep your home pest-free and your family safe.


4. Follow-up

With the passage of time, pests have developed ingenious methods to get inside your home. This is why it's crucial for you to maintain a proactive pest control plan that can protect your loved ones against these pesky creatures.

As any homeowner knows, pests can be a year-round problem. In the spring and summer, ants and mosquitoes are a common nuisance.

In the fall, termites become more active, and in the winter, rodents seek out warm places to nest. While pests are less visible in the winter, they are still active and can cause damage to your home.

Seasonal pest treatments can help you control pests throughout the year and prevent infestations.

For example, our regular treatments for ants in the spring can help to prevent an infestation in the summer. And our treatments for rodents can also help to prevent them from entering your home in winter.

By being proactive with seasonal pest treatments, you can help to keep your home pest-free all year long!

That is why all our preferred care plans include quarterly treatments and our pest-free pledge which states:

"If pests return between your regularly scheduled preferred care services, we will return at no additional cost to you!"

These scheduled visits allow us to track the effectiveness of the initial treatment, as well as identify any new potential issues that have arisen since our last visit.

By performing follow-up treatments regularly, you can be sure that your home is protected against pests year-round.

As you can see, our service isn't just about placing smart devices; it's all about making your home pest-proof so you can enjoy life again without worrying about what might be lurking nearby or hidden in dark corners ready to pounce on anyone who walks by.

Here's what she has to say about it:

"It’s so great to know not only that we have the SMART system installed in our home but also what other steps we need to do to ensure we have a safe home free of pests and other damages.

Overall, I highly recommend the SMART system to every homeowner who wants to have a completely pest-free home in a safe, eco-friendly way!"

Erin Smith - xoxoerinsmith.com

Like many of our other customers, Erin Smith also loved the intelligent trapping system that we offer and has decided to get it for her home. We are thrilled to share her experience!

Her testimony is one of a kind:

"When I bring companies and staff into my home and near my family, I am often skeptical. The staff at American Pest were absolutely amazing.

They arrived ahead of time for our pest control appointment and were so pleasant and friendly. They immediately introduced themselves to me and my family and made me feel at ease.

The American Pest team was very clear about what they were going to do while at my home. Both inside and outside, how they were going to accomplish that, and how long they would be at my home.

The American Pest staff went above and beyond to get to know my family and ask questions which reassured me that I made the right decision"


Christine | @Thecurlyqmom

Christine is one of our valued partners, and we're proud to work with her! She's an amazing mother who loves to spend time with her kids, and also understands the importance of having quality time at home.

That's why she decided to get our SMART trapping system installed. With this system, she can forget about bugs and enjoy her time with her loved ones.

“It feels great knowing our home is safe from pests thanks to @AmericanPest. Since our service, we’ve been able to run around our home to play without any concern that pests might put a damper on our fun thanks to the SMART Technology we had installed this week!”


Laney Morello | @hellomorellos

Laney found a way to make time for everything in life because she knew how important moments are. Now as an adult with 3 adorable kids, she has learned that there are some things worth investing in - like your home safety.

She decided that our SMART pest control system would let her stop worrying about pesky pests while focusing on what matters most: family.

Take a look at her experience:

“The technician from American Pest, Mark, show right on time, as soon as he walked in, we could tell he knew exactly what he was talking about, he was so smart, he was so helpful answering all our questions.

Then he got to work, spraying, and treating everything, and installing all the smart devices. Then he reminded us how it works, what to expect, and that we can reach out to them at any point.

After that we have noticed a huge difference, it has been awesome, just not having to worry about it, and even if something does pop up, its covered. I don’t have to worry about it, I don’t have to spend my day trying to get someone because they have the whole thing under control, so we are super grateful to American Pest for that.”
