What is a monitor?

Monitoring devices are used to observe activity, identify pests properly and formulate specific solutions for the situation at hand.

The monitor is one of our most important tools.

Pest control has evolved so much over the last several decades. At Franklin Pest Solutions, we pride ourselves in providing scientific solutions that solve the problem without relying on product overkill.

About the monitor

  • Non-chemical piece of cardboard with a layer of adhesive glue on it
  • Disposable
  • Can be folded to fit into inconspicuous spaces, away from children or pets that might be present
  • Tells the Pest Management Specialist the exact species and counts of pests captured
  • Works 24/7 while our Specialist isn’t there to provide important information about activity and populations of pests
  • Each monitor is tracked and activity is noted in each customer’s account

We’re not exterminators, we’re public health professionals. And we’re looking out for your family and business.
