The Bio of Dr. Bug, Owner of ProBest Pest Management
If you have a bug problem and you are looking for someone who can solve it, please read on…
Keith Birkemeyer aka Dr. Bug has been in the business of pest management for over 20 years. His interest in bugs began at an early age when he delighted(?) his parents with an infestation of Praying Mantis. He had brought some egg cases in from the cold one winter in Ohio. When they hatched there were baby Praying Mantis everywhere. Keith grew up in Scouting and is an Eagle Scout.
His formal training began in Florida. A state well known for a hearty bug population, especially termites. He continued his career with a chemical manufacturing company as a Technical Specialist.
Keith has traveled the world speaking to various groups about bugs, termites and pest control. He is an Associate Certified Entomologist. Keith enjoys sharing his Arizona pest control stories and facts. He is the owner of ProBest. ProBest has been named a Quality Pro company. And is awarded the “Mark of Excellence in Pest Management” by the National Pest Management Association. Keith may be a grown kid at heart and his company allows him to pursue his passion.
No one knows bugs like Keith does. That is the number one reason to call ProBest Pest Management for all your insect prevention needs.[/az_column_text]

Protect your home from invasion of scorpions, bees, snakes and other dangerous pests with a Scorpion Home Seal.
Our ProBest Home Seal Service Includes:[/az_column_text][az_column_text animation_loading=”yes”]
- Dust Attic or crawl space.
- Block wall bump-outs (pilaster) – concrete or seal those cracks, that’s where the scorpions and other bugs hide.
- Garage door seal StormShield (on concrete where the garage door comes down).
- Replace the Garage Door T trim rubber, over time this product wears and should be replaced. Sometimes this product is actually vinyl and doesn’t wear as well as rubber. So we replace it with rubber.
- Garage Door trim is the piece that goes around the sides of garage door. It really is there to prevent intrusion of water, rain, dirt/dust and bugs.
- Garage Door Rodent Guard, this attaches at the bottom of both sides of garage door molding trim and is constructed of metal making it tougher for rodents to gnaw their way into the garage.
- Install Dryer Vent Screen to prevent birds and other pests from entering your home through the dryer vent.
- Clean dryer vent exhaust duct work from the dryer to the outside. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that 15,000 fires are caused each year because the lint builds up.
What can you do to prevent scorpions and rodents from gaining access into your home?
- Repair pipes that leak. Check drip and irrigation systems for leaks. Check to insure that irrigation doesn’t splash your home. Over time the water will seep into the house.
- Use pest resistant trash receptacles.
- Pest proof your compost bin.
- Encourage bats and song birds, they eat bugs.
- Plant flowers not to close to the house. I don’t suggest planting them to close. Don’t plant vines that attach over time. This creates an avenue into the house. And you can’t see what is going on behind the plant.
- Make sure access panels are secured and closed.
- Monthly or at the least quarterly check your home for unusual signs of pests or rodents.
- At least once a year conduct a termite inspection.
