Pest Control FAQs

Are you dealing with a pest infestation? Home Pest Control has answers to some of your most common pest-related questions.

Your Questions Answered


Q: Can I eliminate a pest infestation on my own?

A:  If you head to the grocery or hardware store, you’ll encounter all sorts of consumer pest control products. There are traps, bait stations, sprays, and even high tech ultrasonic pest repellers available for purchase. But do these products really work?

In some cases, it’s possible to take care of a minor pest infestation on your own. Some pests are easier to get rid of than others. For example, eliminating indoor mosquitoes may be as simple as repairing a few screens on your windows. However, some pests can be extremely difficult to eliminate. Rodent infestations, German cockroaches, bed bugs, and all sorts of other common pest infestations are next to impossible to get rid of without professional assistance. If in doubt, contact Home Pest Control for a consultation.

 

Q: Do I need ongoing monthly pest control services?

 

A: The answer to this question is dependent upon the specifics of your situation. In some instances, all you need is a single pest treatment. If you’re dealing with a single pest and the infestation is minor, a one time treatment might be adequate.

More often than not, though, we find that ongoing pest control is extremely beneficial for our customers. You can rest assured that you and your family won’t have any future pest problems to worry about, and you’ll quickly see your existing pest issues disappear. Ongoing pest control can also save you time in the long run, as you won’t have to contact a pest control professional on a case-by-case basis. Take a look at our Home Shield Pest Prevention program to learn more about Home Pest Control’s ongoing pest control services.

 

Q: Are Home Pest Control’s products safe for me and my family?

 

A: You’re right to be concerned for the health and safety of you and your family. When it comes to pest control, it’s important to ensure that you’re working with a licensed company that employees highly trained and skilled professionals. If pesticides are used improperly, they can indeed pose a danger to people and animals. Home Pest Control only uses pest control products regulated by the EPA, and our pest control professionals understand how to apply these products appropriately in and around your home.

 

Q: Is Home Pest Control pet-friendly?

 

A: In a word: yes. Here at Home Pest Control, our goal is to offer environmentally friendly pest control services that are safe for you and your family, including your pets. The concentrations of insecticide that we use are high enough for effective pest control, but low enough to prevent toxicity in humans or pets. We also consult with our customers to understand the presence and behavior of pets before placing bait stations or traps, thereby ensuring that these items are placed in areas where pets won’t have access to them.

 

Q: I’m not sure if I need professional pest control assistance. What should I do?

 

A: Sometimes, it can be hard to tell whether you need professional help in order to get rid of pests in your home. We understand, and we’re here to help! Contact Home Pest Control to set up a consultation. We’ll assess your home and make specific recommendations based on the needs of your particular situation.
