Q: Do I have to leave my house if the interior needs to be treated?

A: Usually not. However, during certain types of services such as fogging and flea and tick treatments, it’s better if all occupants leave the home for a period of time. Please consult our helpful and knowledgeable staff for specifications.

Q: How often should I have my house treated for pests?

A: Everybody has a different threshold of acceptance for pests. Some people feel that seeing a single insect (dead or alive) between services is too much. While on the other hand, some feel that a few insects between services are acceptable. Our knowledgeable staff will work with you to design a service to suit your particular needs. For most homes we recommend at least a quarterly service plan.

Q: How long will it take before I see results?

A: It depends on the pest and severity of infestation. Generally, you will see a reduction is pest activity immediately after our first visit, in some cases it may take several visits.

Q: If I don’t see any pests, can I skip a service call?

A: No. the reason you are not seeing pests is because you are part of a maintenance program. For us to maintain control, we must perform all of your services.

Q: What if it rains after my service?

A: All of the materials used in our pest management programs are designed for all weather conditions.

Q: How are pests getting inside my house?

A: There are often many areas around the exterior of the home that can either be a pest attractant or an area conducive to pests. These may include vents, windows, eaves, debris around the home, landscaping issues, etc.

Q: How do I know if I have termites?

A: Unfortunately you usually don’t until it’s too late. Termites can enter your home & go unnoticed for quite some time. They don’t make noise when eating. So, most people find out when they discover damage inside the home or in the spring when they are greeted by hundreds of flying termites. You should have your home inspected annually regardless if it has been treated or not.
