Top Frequently Asked Pest Control Questions

  • How do I know if I need extermination? The answer to this question is pretty simple. If you see just a few ants or just one mouse, those few ants or one mouse have a whole bunch of buddies lurking where you can’t see them. If you have even a slightly visible problem then you have a problem. Left untreated, you could have a crisis.
  • What are your "environmentally sound alternatives?" We use state-of-the-art, low toxicity chemicals that are much less harmful to people, pets, and their environments than what is currently offered by the majority of the pest control market.
  • I have a whole bunch of pests and a lot of them. Do you have a solution? If you have a feeling one treatment isn’t enough to keep your house pest-free, we offer a couple of different options, including comprehensive service bundles.
  • How long do I have to leave the premises? Because we use low toxicity chemicals, you can usually stay home during the treatment. Flea, bed bug, and spider treatments require you to leave for 2-4 hours. Roaches, ants, mice, termites, and just about everything else can be taken care of while you’re relaxing on the living room couch.
  • What about pets and children? Children need to leave during the treatment and may return 2-3 hours after completion. We ask that during treatments, you either put your pets in a room that is not being treated or remove them from the structure until the materials we have used are dry. Fish tanks need to be covered.
  • Do the chemicals you use have a real bad odor? Another great benefit of low toxicity chemicals is virtually odorless pest control. No longer do you need to be reminded that you received extermination by a nasty, lingering odor.
  • Do you guarantee your work? We stand behind all of our work. Should any problems arise within a reasonable amount of time after the completion of the job, we will return for no extra charge, completely hassle-free.
