Pests. No one likes them and everyone wants to get rid of them. Getting rid of pests is what we do best! The second-best thing we do is answer questions. Here are some of the most common ones we’ve gotten over the years from customers:
Q: Can I get rid of pests by myself?
A: If those pests are your mother-in-law or the weird guy in the cubicle next to you at work, have at it. But if those pests have tiny legs and tiny wings, you’re better off calling the professionals. Large infestations can become larger very quickly, so you really don’t want to mess around.
Q: Do I need regular pest control services?
A: If you’re experiencing an infestation, it’s important to not only knock that infestation out, but do routine maintenance to ensure it never comes back. We recommend treatment every two to three months.
Q: Is there a difference between pest control and an exterminator?
A: Great question. Exterminators use only pesticides to get rid of unwanted pests. Often these chemicals are incredibly toxic. Pest control professionals, on the other hand, take a more holistic approach to pest control and prevention. We get to the root of the issue, why they have become attracted to your property, and work to remedy the situation using the most effective common-sense treatments available.
Q: How do I choose a pest control service?
A: It’s important to look for a pest control company that has been licensed and is a member of national, state or local pest management associations. This shows they are highly qualified and stay on top of industry best practices.
Q: How long do your treatments take?
A: That really depends on the size of the infestation and the size of the property. Some treatments may only take 30 minutes while others may take between 8 and 10 hours.
