Q. Can I get rid of a pest infestation using DIY techniques?
A. When it comes to pest extermination, many homeowners will buy some random pesticides from the market and apply it in their house or apartment. While using DIY techniques may work in some cases, they fail to deliver long-term solutions. The process of pest management should be carried out in a proper manner to get rid of pests as well as prevent future infestations. If you end up buying the wrong products, you may even help the pests multiply and make your problem even worse. Not just that, you will also waste both time and money in the process while exposing yourself to some serious health risks.
Unless you have some practical knowledge, you should always rely on the services of a professional pest control company in or near your location. Successful removal of pests requires deep knowledge and expertise.
Q. Why should I seek the help of pest control experts?
A. Hiring the services of an experienced pest control company offers a number of benefits. Key reasons you should work with experts include controlled application of pesticides, decreased chances of pest-related illnesses and saving money. Licensed technicians have experience in dealing with a range of pest issues. They carry ample knowledge and expertise to first assess the severity of the problem and then work out and implement the most ideal solution.
Above all, trained professionals perform pest removal in a way which keeps you and your family protected against health risks.
Q. What should I expect from a first pest control visit?
A. Before we give your property an initial visit, we would like you to know the process that will be followed. If you are hiring a pest control service for the first time, here is what you should expect us to do:
- A Professional Introduction
- Inspection of Entry Areas
- Examination of the Outdoor Spaces
- Moisture Check
During the initial visit by our team, you will get the chance to ask any questions that you may have in regard to your specific pest infestation. An inspection of all the key entry points will follow after that. Our experts will also carefully inspect your yard in order to prevent future infestations. After a moisture check, you will be provided with a review and report of the inspection. During the discussion, our team will share with you the findings of the inspection. Finally, once you have given the nod, we will move ahead and start planning the pest treatment.
Q. Why does a pest management company focus on outdoor spaces?
A. Examination of your yard or the outdoor spaces of your property is an essential part of the pest extermination process. As a pest control expert, our goal is not just to kill and remove pests from inside your home, but also find areas of concern and destroy the actual sources of pests. This is done to ensure a long-term solution and keep out pests, bugs and termites in future as well.
Q. How many treatments are required to successfully get rid of pests in a house, apartment or commercial property?
A. Since all pest problems are not the same, the solutions also vary from one case to another. The number of treatments will be determined after a proper assessment of the specific infestation you have. If the infestation is severe, more than one treatment will be needed. It is important for the baits, sprays and other chemicals to reach every nook and cranny in your property where pests may be hiding. Once our pest removal process has started, you will start to see a gradual reduction in the presence of pests. It may take 1-2 weeks for the application of pesticides to take effect and for the pest problem to go away completely.
Q. What kind of exterminator services do you offer?
A. At the Activated Pest Solutions, we specialize in the extermination of pests such as water bugs, spiders, roaches, earwigs, ants, crickets, bed bugs, bees, wasps, beetles, rats, etc. What makes you stand out in the pest control market is our in-depth knowledge about each pest including their life cycles, what they feed on, and their behaviors and habits. It is through this information that we can effectively create customized plans to deal with a wide range of infestations.
Based on your specific problem and needs, you can hire our pest extermination service for just one time or on a monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly basis.
Q. What are the variables that affect the frequency of pest control?
A. How often you need pest control is determined by multiple key factors. These include the type of your property, location of your property, the type of pests you want removed and the environment conditions. Apart from these, there are some other factors that will play a role as well. For more details in this connection, you should talk to one of our experts at the Activated Pest Solutions.
Q. What is the average cost for pest control?
A. Every pest problem is different. The average cost of getting a pest control service starts from $150 and it can go up to $800. The total cost for executing a solution to get rid of pests will depend on the type of pests, the severity of the problem, the size of the pest infestation, type of treatment and the number of treatments that will be required for the complete elimination of pests.
Q. Do you offer a free quote?
A. Yes. After an initial assessment, we will discuss with you the pest issue you have and its solutions in detail. Feel free to get in touch with one of our professionals to schedule and receive your free estimate.
Q. What to expect after a pest control treatment?
A. Any pest infestation will not go away overnight. After the treatment, you may have to wait for 1-2 weeks to see results. During this period, pests will consume the insecticide or the bait and come out and die. If your infestation is a severe one, it can take 4-5 weeks for all the pests and bugs to flush out. You may notice pests moving slowly after the treatment. But there will be a gradual reduction in the number of pests and they will all finally come in contact with the treated zone and be killed. Our team will keep you up to date throughout the entire process.
