Q: How often do I have to have it done?
A: There is no easy answer to this question. Your home’s location, the time of year, pets, landscape and human traffic all factor into determining what will work best for you.

Q: I have termites in my yard, so does that mean my house has termites?
A: Good question. Termites are a fact of life here, and there will always be termites in the vicinity of your home. A good indicator is the presence of mud tunnels or tubes on your foundation or small piles of pellets that return after you clean them up. To find out if they have found their way into your home, call for a free estimate.

Q: Do you have discounts?
A: Senior, military and referral discounts are available.

Q: My house is clean, so why do I have roaches?
A: Not all cockroaches will infest your home. Certain species will end up in your home incidentally because they live around your home or come up through your drains. Our technicians can identify your particular species and recommend a course of action.

Q: I have bees, what should I do?
A: Keep children and pets away from the area. Contact us – we have trained technicians who can deal with your problem and answer questions. Once on site, we will give you a price that we will stick to.

Q: What is making holes in my yard?
A: We have a large variety of “critters” that can be the cause of this. One of our trained technicians can evaluate your situation, identify the culprit and recommend a solution.
