FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I get rid of the pests by myself?
The basis of any pest control starts with improved sanitation and eliminating conditions conducive to the pest infestation. This may be enough to solve your problem, but there are times when more must be done to be pest free. This is when you should enlist the services of a qualified pest management professional.

Are chemicals the only solution to my pest problem? Are they a health risk?
Chemicals are rarely the only solution and can pose a health risk if not used properly. This is why it is essential to only deal with licensed, qualified professionals. Pesticide may be a part of the solution, but the objective is to achieve control with minimum risk or hazard to the customer and the environment.

Will my house smell after the treatment?
In most cases, there is little to no smell associated with the service.

Do you offer any “green” or non-chemical treatments?
We offer a variety of environmental conscious programs that take a preventive approach toward pest control, thus significantly reducing the need for pesticides.

Are the treatments harmful to my children or pets?
All products used in our treatments are EPA registered and, when used according to the label, pose little to no risk. Furthermore, all products selected for indoor use by our company fall into the caution category, which is the EPA’s lowest risk category. On rare occasions, depending on the treatment, we may ask you and your family and pets to leave your home for a short time.

How soon can you begin treating my house?
Most of the time, we can have a technician out to your home or business within twenty-four hours.

How long will the service visit take?
The length of the service will vary depending on the pest and level of infestation. Typically, the service takes 45 minutes to an hour.

Will my family have to leave home during the treatment?
On most occasions, this isn’t necessary, but it depends on the pest and level of infestation.

When can I expect to see results?
We typically ask that you give the treatment 14 days, but there are situations where the results may be immediate.

Will you have to come more that once?
This will depend on the pest we are dealing with, as well as the level of infestation.

Do you guarantee your work?
We believe that quality counts; therefore, we warranty most programs.

Do you deal with wildlife?
We no longer handle wildlife removal/exclusion at this time, but we can help you get in touch with the appropriate service or authority.
