Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Will my home really be pest-free?
A. Yes! We can eliminate existing infestations and prevent insects and rodents from re-entering, for a pest-free environment that is backed by a 100% year-round guarantee, depending on the level of service you choose. Just call or e-mail us for additional information and pricing.
Q. How long will the technician be at my home?
A. It depends on the type of pest, the size of your home and other factors. A routine initial service for ants, for example, may take less than an hour, while rodent problems may require several service visits.
Q. Why don’t over-the-counter sprays seem to get rid of the ants in my home?
A. These pesticides will only kill the ants you actually spray, which are only a fraction of what you actually have. If the colony is not destroyed, ants will continue to return to areas where you can see them. A trained professional can identify the type of ant, locate the source and apply the necessary treatment.
Q. Do termites only attack older houses?
A. Termites have been found in buildings as early as four days after construction. Any building with any wood in its construction is susceptible to termite infestation.
Q. Are there other wood-destroying insects I need to worry about?
A. Next to termites, beetles are the worst wood-destroying insects that threaten your home. They like all kinds of wood – old and new, hard and soft – and even your furniture. Wood-borers, such as Powderpost Beetles, Old House Borers and Anobiid Beetles, tunnel into the wood of your home to lay their eggs. Hungry larvae then hatch and begin eating everything in sight. Some live as long as 10 years.
Q.Is my home is free from wood-destroying pests if I’ve never seen any evidence of termites or beetles?
A. Not necessarily. These pests work from the inside out and are extremely difficult to detect. Drywood termites are especially difficult because, with the exception of rarely seen swarmers, the other members of the colony spend their entire lives inside the wood.
Tips For Securing Your Home
Many homeowners inadvertently leave out the welcome mat for bugs and pests. Our technician will recommend easy, yet effective steps you can take to create a home environment that will keep pests out. By simply removing their food supply and breeding sites you will be on your way to a pest free home.
Seal Up The Open Spaces
Make sure all outside doors and windows are completely sealed. If you can see light around or beneath a door or window, insects and/or mice will be able to come in! Likewise, keep garage doors closed. For a tight seal make sure the weather stripping at the base of the door is in good condition. Check for good screening on vents.
Dry Out Drainage Areas
Dry up any sources of moisture in or around your home. Fix plumbing leaks on the inside and provide proper water drainage away from your home on the outside (gutters, downspouts, etc.).Do not leave buckets of water on or around your deck or porch as this will attract insects.
Reduce The Clutter
Clutter around the house and in attics, closets and basements provide excellent housing for pests. Eliminate unnecessary items and keep stored items in sealed plastic containers.
Clean Up After Yourself
Extensively clean up food spills, especially pet food. Don’t leave dirty dishes out overnight. To help control fruit flies wash all fruits and vegetables that are not kept refrigerated. Regular vacuuming and cleaning also decreases the likelihood of pest infestation. Remember to change vacuum bags regularly, as they can act as a breeding ground for pests.
Trim Around The Edge
Vegetation creates easy access into your home. Keep trees, shrubs and plants cut back from your home’s roof, eaves, windows and siding. Likewise, keep debris, scraps, mulch and woodpiles away from your home’s foundation.
