Frequently Asked Questions
I have roaches in my home and have tried sprays and bombs. These don't seem to be working. What else can I do?
Cockroaches can be very difficult to control because so many things can contribute to their survival such as food, water and shelter. Aerosol bombs are not effective in controlling cockroaches. For a more effective treatment, contact us.
I am waking up with strange bites on my body. What could these be?
You could quite possibly be infested with bed bugs.
We have bugs in our house. Can I get something to spray that is “child friendly” but will get rid of the bugs?
In order to control and/or eradicate the insects you must first eliminate their food sources, nesting areas (if any), entry points, etc. With, our IPM (Integrated Pest Management) approach identifies not only the pests but the true cause of the problem. We will then treat in the most environmentally responsible way to alleviate current issues and help prevent any future recurrence.
I have bees drilling holes in my house. What can I do and will they sting?
The bees you are describing sound like carpenter bees. They bore into wood to nest and lay eggs. They are not very aggressive, and the male (white spot on face) does not sting. There isn’t a lot that can be done to prevent this from happening however it is important to treat the holes and then seal them as the bees will reuse the holes each year.
Do you have a monthly or quarterly service, that I can afford?
Having a monthly service is actually more affordable than doing last minute emergency service exterminations. This way, you don’t have to worry about pests EVER being in your home, because we maintain your home or business.
I have roaches but I keep a clean house. Why do I still see them?
Having a clean house will not eradicate roaches entering your home since they are looking for food, shelter and water to survive. If it is a larger cockroach you are seeing, they are coming from the outside to the inside, through windows or doors that might not be sealed properly when shut, or through attics, basements, etc. If it is the smaller German cockroach, they can be brought in on groceries, bags, furniture, etc.
