Frequently Asked Questions

We are happy to expand upon these topics on the phone, or by email!

Will I have to leave my house?

More than likely you will not have to vacate your home. However, you may have to avoid a specific area for a short time, until the spray dries.

What if I'm Pregnant?

In the case where there is a pregnant woman living within the home, or working nearby, we always suggest that you leave for a short period of time.

What about my children and my pets?

The products we use are developed to control insects and small rodents, and therefore are not intended to harm “Non-Target Pests” at the labeled rate and method of application. Cause for concern would only come if an animal or person ingested these chemicals. For safety, if there are young children present, we would recommend leaving the area for a few hours, until the chemical dries. Once an application dries, it is completely safe to both people and pets.

What if I accidentally touch an area that has been treated?

If you are exposed to an area that was treated simply wash with soap and water as soon as possible.

What do I need to do prior to a pest control treatment?

If the problem is inside your home or business, access to the edge of the affected room is necessary. Items such as clothing, linens, toys, etc. should be moved or picked up. All food items should be put away as well.

What happens if it rains?

In the case where there is an outdoor treatment, all environmental conditions have some degrading impact on our application. Run off from a hard rain is unlikely because the products we use are designed to bond with the soil and remain in place. However, this is why warranties are in place in most situations.

Do you guarantee your work?

Many of our treatments come with 30, 60, or 90-day warranties. Warranties can be purchased or extended. Termite treatments usually come with a 1-year warranty unless another arrangement is made between the technician and the customer.

How much do you charge for your services?

Our affordable fees are determined by the size and the complexity of the project. These factors are discussed in detail and will be part of our estimate.
