Answering Your Questions:

What is the Number One Household Pest?

– Ants are often considered the number one household pest due to their ability to establish colonies in homes and access food supplies, making them a challenging nuisance for homeowners.

What is the Hardest Pest To Control?

– While bedbugs receive a lot of attention, ants can be one of the most challenging pests to control due to their large numbers and ability to infiltrate various areas in the home. We are well-equipped to handle ant infestations effectively.

How Do I Make My House Completely Bug-Free?

– Achieving a bug-free home requires a comprehensive approach:

– Regular Pest Control: Enroll in a program like our Quarterly Pest Control (QPC) service. This provides consistent and lasting protection with four appointments annually.

– Eliminate Entry Points: Seal cracks and crevices in your home’s exterior to prevent pests from entering.

– Proper Sanitation: Maintain cleanliness by regularly vacuuming, dusting, and sweeping to remove attractants like crumbs and spills.

– Trim Vegetation: Keep lawns and vegetation well-trimmed, ensuring they don’t touch your home’s exterior.

– Reduce Clutter: Store woodpiles and construction materials away from your home.

– Manage Standing Water: Eliminate sources of standing water, both inside and outside, which can attract pests.

– Reduce Outdoor Lighting: Use yellow light bulbs less likely to attract insects.

– Professional Pest Control: We’re right down the road! Consider utilizing our services that guarantee results and provide ongoing support.

Is Your Pest Control Service Safe for Kids and Pets?

– Absolutely. All our products are labeled for safe use by national and state agencies. We prioritize safety; the only precaution necessary is keeping people and pets off treated areas until they are dry.

Do I Have to Leave My House for Service?

– No, vacating your home before, during, or after standard service is unnecessary. We ensure that our procedures are non-disruptive to your daily life.

Why Do I Need a Winter Service?

– Pests don’t simply disappear during winter; they seek shelter indoors. Regular quarterly service is vital for consistent treatment, even in colder months. Our granular treatments effectively target overwintering insects near your home, creating a long-term barrier activated by winter conditions. Our pest control plan also covers mice, which are more likely to invade during colder months.

How Long Does the Product Take to Work?

– Our products typically work immediately, though some, like those used for ants, may have delayed action for maximum effectiveness.

Is Your Work Guaranteed?

– Yes, all our pest control programs are backed by a guarantee. We stand by the quality of our service and results.
