How much does a termite treatment cost?
It’s impossible to give an accurate quote without measuring the house and its treatable linear feet. Pricing ranges from $525 to $1500 depending on the termiticide used, size/structure of the property and location.
Do you have to look at our house to give us a quote for pest solutions?
Usually we can quote a price over the phone if you know the square footage and the style of your house. On some very large houses or apartment complexes we prefer to look at the property to give a fair quote.
How long does a termite treatment last?
Average expectancy of the termiticide is between 5 to 10 years of effective control. This is based on their field trials. This long term rate of effectiveness also depends on the homeowner’s cooperation in reducing or eliminating conducive conditions in and around the home.
Will the chemicals hurt my children or pets?
No, but the wet spray may irritate the skin. That is why we ask people to keep kids and pets away from the treated area. Allow adequate time for the product to dry completely before coming into contact or close proximity of the product. The amount of time is varied but our expierenced and cautious technician will advise you as to the minimum amount of time to be away from the area.
Will it stain the siding or be hard to clean off of the windows?
The insecticide we use is mixed with water and does not stain. It isn’t greasy and doesn’t leave a film. Any residue is easy to clean off the windows.
Can we spray for mice?
No, we don’t “spray” for mice. We have specific products we use to alleviate your rodent problem.
Will you call before you come to treat the house?
Yes, we will call you the day before we treat the house. We usually call in the late afternoon or the evening and give you an approximate time, within a couple of hours of when we will be there. Weather is always a factor in performing termite treatments.
What is your guarantee for pest control?
Our guarantee comes with the quarterly contract. After the inital spray, if you see pests during the interim 3 month period, we will come back at no charge to the customer.
Do we have to pay right away?
Payment is due at the time of service. We accept cash, we accept personal checks with proper state issued identification and we accept all forms of credit card payments. There is a minimum $25 check processing fee for all returned checks.
If I have a contract for pest services does that protect my home from wood destroying insects such as termites?
NO. This is a common misconception among homeowners. It is very important that the homeowner undersands that the pest service covers general pest concerns such as roaches, spiders, ants, flies, fleas, ticks, and rodents to mention a few. A termite treatment and renewal is completely separate from general pest control services. Think of it in terms of pest service protects you, termite service protects the home indirectly protecting you from an investment catastrophe.
Do We Have To Be Home For Pest Spray?
Only if you want to be home. We can conduct a perimeter spray to protect you and your family. This is a spray that is continuous around the home and along the cracks and crevices and troubled areas close to your home. Quarterly treatments in effect provide the foundation for treatments that require maintenance only opposed to extermination of an existing pest. Prevention by means of quarterly sprays often times is less intrusive and preferred to one time sprays.
