FAQ

General Pests

Yes. The chemicals used today have a low concentrate of active ingredients
but are still effective in controlling your pest issues.

Yes. For the same reasons as noted above, it is safe for pets to be around.
However, there ARE a few circumstances (regarding fleas, ticks and rodents)
where pets are a consideration for how we treat your home.

Our experience has shown that the technology combined with the makeup of
the chemicals used today allow us to prevent pests from entering your
home by treating outside of the home.

Yes. If we feel that treating inside your home is needed, or if you specifically
request us to, we are happy to treat inside your home. And, again, the
chemicals we use are perfectly safe inside or outside the home.

This is probably THE most common question. The answer to this question
has many factors to consider. Weather conditions (sun, rain, hot, cold)
can plays a role in determining how long a particular treatment will remain
effective.

Termites

Termidor is an advanced technology liquid called nonrepellent.This means
termites cannot see, smell, taste or avoid it. Instead, they come in contact,
ingest & share the chemical with all the termites in the colony.
No. Termidor® works the same way and is less expensive than baiting
systems. More than the cost factor, though, baiting can take up to 6 months to work.
No. Termidor® is odor free.
Yes. Termidor is one of the safest termiticides on the market today.

Mosquitos

Mosquitoes breed in standing water, where the adults lay their eggs and
the larvae hatch and develop. Because mosquitoes must have water to complete
their life cycle, treating sources of water is important to prevent the
larvae from becoming breeding, biting, and potentially disease-carrying adults.

In general, yes. Most mosquitoes you see are from your property or your
neighbors’. Mosquitoes usually stay close to the area where they developed
into adults. There are mosquito species, however, that can fly several
miles. Counties and municipalities pay the most attention to these.

We do spray to kill the adult, biting mosquitoes. By the time you see them,
however, several hundred mosquitoes have already emerged from water sources
as adults. It’s much better to stop them before that point, with a larvicide
that prevents mosquitoes from developing.

We have products that target only insects. They are not harmful to fish,
pets or wildlife when used according to the label directions.

Mosquitos develop, mature and lay eggs in standing water whenever conditions
are right, which is quite often in warmer months. Regular treatments are
recommended whenever conditions are suitable for mosquito reproduction.

Treatment should begin as soon as the temperature regularly is above 65
degrees Fahrenheit and should continue into the fall.
