Frequently Asked Questions
Is it true that one cockroach can be an indication of many more?
Yes, cockroaches travel in packs, which means the possibility of having more than one inside your home is high. Insects, like cockroaches, carry diseases that are dangerous to people. Unfortunately, our homes and businesses can attract these pests, often providing easy access to food.
How do I know if I have fleas in my home?
Check for small bites on your skin, specifically around your ankles. Also, examine your carpet by passing over it with a white rag, and inspect your pets with assistance from a veterinarian.
I have treated my home with store-bought sprays, but I still have a horrible flea problem every summer. Is there anything else I can do?
Fleas are a common problem during the summer, and treatment for these pests requires more than just spraying inside your home. Flea removal and prevention usually involves treating your yard, home, and pets. The best way to go about treating a flea infestation is by contacting pest control experts. Although spraying on your own may seem logical, it won't eradicate the problem. Experts treat to break the life cycle of pests, which will keep them from reinfesting.
How do I know if I have flying ants or termites?
It can be challenging to tell these pests apart. However, there are three identifiers to look for. First, termite's wings are symmetrical and extend past their abdominal section, while ant's wings are unequal in length and end at the tip of their abdomen. Second, termite antennae are bead-like and straight, while ant antennae elbow out from the middle. Last, termites have straight bodies, while ants have narrow waists.
Do mosquitoes carry diseases?
Yes, mosquitoes are some of the most dangerous insects in the world due to the diseases they spread. You should never underestimate even the ones in your backyard.
Is it possible to get rid of mosquitoes?
Yes, things aren't hopeless against these pests! Professionals have the skills and knowledge to keep mosquitoes from breeding on your property.
What does "hospital grade" mean?
Hospitals have strict guidelines when it comes to how their facilities are treated and fumigated. There cannot be any risk of endangering the health of patients through the use of toxic chemicals. So, "hospital grade" refers to treatments that are safe for sensitive locations like health care facilities.
When can I return to my home after fumigation?
Your return time is determined by the type of treatment, but we recommend you wait several hours. Be sure to confirm exactly how long you should wait before entering your home and always have service personal specify any other instructions regarding fumigation.
Should I mow my lawn before treatment?
Preferably, yes. Mowing your lawn and trimming plants, trees, and bushes away from the sides of your structure can increase the effectiveness of pest control treatments.
