Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What pest problems can you treat?

Q: What is involved in a typical pest control treatment?
A: On a standard General Pest Service, we treat the outside of the perimeter 5-10 from the foundation with either a granular and/or liquid product. We treat around all windows and doors, and remove spider webs & wasp nests. Inside the home we treat key areas that may harbor or provide entry to pests. If necessary, we can inspect key areas in the home such as attics or crawlspaces that may be sources of pests. Outside only services are also available.

A: No special precautions are required for pest control treatments where children and pets are present.

A: Prices will vary based on the type of service. Our pricing is based on the square footage of the area to be serviced and the degree of the infestation. Please contact us for more specific information on our pricing.
