How many times do we have to treat the house?
Typically the treatment lasts about 3 months on the outside of a house. We schedule first treatments from late April through late June and second treatments from August until late October.
Do I have to be home?
If we are treating just the outside of your house, you don’t have to be at home, just make sure the windows are closed.
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 inside the house while we spray. It usually takes an hour or less for the spray to dry.
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 on the windows. Any residue is easy to clean off the windows.
Can we spray for mice?
No, the chemicals only work on insects.
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. We usually schedule only 1 day ahead because of the weather. We call our customers in late March or early April to see if they want to be treated again that summer.
Do you have to look at our house to give us a quote?
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.
What is your guarantee?
We guarantee one spider spray treatment for 6 weeks. If you see spiders or webs reforming up to 6 weeks after the first treatment we will re-treat the problem areas for free. If two spider spray treatments are applied by us, our guarantee will cover you all summer long.
Do we have to pay right away?
You can pay at the time of service or send us payment after our service is done. We accept cash, check or Visa/MasterCard.
Do bed bugs fly?
No. they crawl and hide in the seams of mattresses and box springs, furniture joints, and baseboards. They are hitchhikers.
