How long will it take to see results after my first treatment?
Time of results will fluctuate with the pest management strategy applied along with the target insect, but for the large part results are long-lasting and fast. Your continuing service agreement will guarantee that pests are not only controlled, but prevented and kept from the house.
Why are baits commonly more powerful than sprays?
To be able to be powerful, spray products break down pretty fast in many instances, and have to come in contact with the target insect. Ants, for example, will bring the bait back to their own nest and disperse it throughout the colony. This results in an even more powerful and effective pest management system with results you can actually see.
Why do the technicians focus on the outside of my home?
Outside your residence is where bugs live and hide. Our service was created to stop the problem where it starts. By addressing the bugs outside of your home we can frequently keep them from ever getting inside.
What are the major differences between a flying ant and a termite?
The three main difference between a termite and flying ant are as follows:
- Wing size
Termite wings are all equivalent in length and go well past the abdomen. Ants have wings that are unlike in length and normally finish in the point of the abdomen.
- Antennae shape
Antennae on termites are beadlike and straight, but on ants they’re elbowed.
- Waist size
Fleas, ticks and bed bugs have distinct life cycles than other targeted species. During certain periods of the life cycle they don’t succumb to treatments, therefore we have to “capture” them between these dormant cycles to be able to achieve management.
I don’t seem to have pest anymore. Do I still need to use a pest control service?
We think of pest control as driving an automobile. If you don’t take care of your car and take care of your regular maintenance, then your car will stop functioning properly after a while.
Pest control is much the same. Our pest control service is designed to first, stop the current pests, and second, to prevent those pests from ever returning. If you choose to discontinue your service, there is a very good chance that your pest problem will return.
