Frequently asked questions
Q: I had an ant treatment yesterday. Should I still be seeing ants?
A: It may take a few days before you see a reduced number. If you continue to see ants after one week of treatment, call us for a free follow-up.
Q: I have bed bugs. Can I just throw out the mattress and buy a new one and I’ll be rid of them?
A: No. Bed bugs don’t just infest mattresses. They hide in cracks and crevices all over the room. Throwing out the mattress and buying a new one just means that the new one will get infested.
Q: I just had a mouse treatment. How soon will they die?
A: It can take a few days for the mice to eat the bait once we put it out and it takes a few days for them to die once they eat it.
Q: Now that I’ve had a mouse treatment, I wonder, where do they die?
A: The bait makes them feel sick, so they typically go back to their nests and die there.
Q: I just had a mouse treatment. What can I do to keep them out of my food?
A: You should contain all of your food that is in paper or plastic packaging in plastic containers that seal well and sweep the floor of the eating area at night before you go to bed. This will keep them from eating your food and force them to eat the bait.
Q: What can I do to discourage rats from moving in to my yard?
A: Make sure that your garbage is well-contained in garbage barrels with tight fitting lids. Garbage is rats’ food source, so if you keep it contained, they can’t get to it.
Q: I only see a couple of roaches. Do I need a treatment?
A: Yes. If you see a couple of roaches, know that there are many more that you don’t see, as they hide in cracks and crevices.
Q: It seems like I’m seeing more spiders after my treatment. Why is that?
A: The treatment irritates them, so you may see more as they move around in an attempt to avoid the spray.
Q: Should I have a termite inspection done on my house?
A: Every house should have a termite inspection once a year.
