FAQs

Q?Why do I need a pest control professional?
A.

The pest management professional relies on pesticide application as just one part of a total pest management program. The untrained consumer, who purchases a pesticide over-the-counter, can only make an intuitive judgment on how to properly apply the pesticide. However, the professional pest management technician relies on training, expertise and more sophisticated techniques to manage pests in an environmentally friendly manner.

Q?What should I look for in choosing a pest control company?
A.

There are a number of factors that may differentiate pest control companies from one another. Following are some general guidelines for choosing a pest control company:

  •  Look for a reputable company with representatives knowledgeable about pest habits, treatment specifications and state regulations.
  • Ask friends and associates to recommend companies they have used.
  • Look for memberships in industry associations such as the Nevada Pest Control Association (NPCA) or the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) that provide ethical guidelines and technical information.
  • Find out if continued coverage is offered that includes treatment for re-infestation.
  • Be certain the company is licensed by your state’s regulatory agency.
Q?Do I have to leave my house during a service?
A.

Usually not. However, during certain types of services such as fogging and flea and tick treatments, it’s better if all occupants leave the home for a period of time. Please consult our helpful and knowledgeable staff for specifications.

Q?I keep a clean house. Why do I still have bugs?
A.

Typically insects will come inside when outside conditions make it uncomfortable for them or they are simply looking for food and moisture. You have won half the battle with bugs if you keep a clean house and the exterior grounds do not offer the insect much in the way of harborage. The next part is to seal your home in a manner that excludes insects from the interior. Sealing plumbing fixtures inside and outside and adding weather stripping to doors will make a world of difference.

Q?When you come to service my home, where will you treat?
A.

First and foremost, our technician will inspect your property and advise you of their findings as well as a strategic plan for managing the problem bugs. From that point, the technician will make pesticide applications to the insects hiding places as well as placing a chemical barrier around your home. This usually includes treating the eaves, bases of windows and all entryways into the home. The interior treatment (if you choose this portion of the service) typically includes treating at the doorways, windows, common areas and other areas that insects can hide.
