Do we need a regular service plan?
If you are unlucky enough to a pest in your home or other building, it may indicate an infestation. Most pest species are nocturnal and reclusive, seeing them may mean that their numbers have large enough for some individuals to seek out new areas to nest and additional food sources. If the pest population is not regularly kept in check, the infestation will just continue to grow. For most homeowners, we have found that our 5 application pest control service will best serve their needs.
Should we be concerned with pesticide use in our home?
There have been many advances in pesticide formulas in recent years – pastes and gels are regularly used by our technicians, almost eliminating the use of airborne pesticides within your home. Liquids and aerosols contain the smallest amount of active ingredients needed to accomplish the desired results. The fact is, most over-the-counter pesticides are far more harmful to homeowners and the environment than anything a Command Pest Technician may consider using at your residence. It is far safer and usually less costly to let our highly-trained technicians take care of your pest problems for you.
What about my pets?
Our treatments will not harm your pets. When we apply pesticides we are targeting a specific pest only. Our technicians are trained to identify and treat the problem pest alone without endangering other species within the environment. Not having a prevention program may in fact be more harmful with pests such as fleas, ticks and rodents.
How do you treat Flea and Tick infestations?
To eliminate the pests we treat the environment – inside and around the house (if neccessary). The product we use has includes a growth regulator, which prevents the fleas from reaching maturity and reproducing. Vacuuming thoroughly before and after the treatment is essential to the effectiveness of this chemical. You must discard the vacuum bag afterwards! To prevent future outbreaks home owners can take preventative measures such as keeping the yard manicured to reduce harborage areas, keeping pets on regular flea/tick treatment like frontline. Pricing for this service is based on the size of the yard and house.
How does your Rodent Control program work?
We use mechanical and glue-based traps, along with strategically placed baits. We usually start out with glue traps, then move to baits if needed. Baits are placed in lockable bait boxes to avoid tampering with. Since the baits are toxic, we try to limit their use in sensitive accounts such as homes with young children. Please note that we do not do any urban wildlife control (squirrels, possums, snakes, raccoons, birds, moles, etc.).
Why do I need a termite contract?
A termite contract is like an insurance policy – we are guaranteeing your home against termite damage. There are several different ways for us to do this. Most new homes have the soil treated prior to construction, thus setting up a protective barrier against termites. In older homes, it is usually necessary to drill the brick and concrete slabs and inject these areas with termiticide. This, as you can imagine, can be a little more costly, but not as costly as replacing walls and floors due to termite damage.
