Pest Treatment Questions

Why should I hire a professional when I can try and do it myself?

Pests are a resilient bunch; and are adept at hiding and entering a home in places you would never think. Therefore, a pest management professional will know where to look for pests; and make expert recommendations on what it will take to prevent or eliminate pests. Also, a licensed pest professional is the only person who can apply pesticides.

How long after the initial treatment does it take to see results?

Results will vary according to the type of pest; treatment methods and products used. For example; immediate results can be seen when a wasps nest is removed or treated with a liquid pesticide. However, when using baits for ants, rodents, and termites; the process takes longer since the pests have to ingest the product; for it to be effective. Your inspector and technician will outline what your expectations for your particular problem should be.
