How Much Does Pest Control Cost?
On average, the cost of pest control depends on the service, the frequency, and the size of the home or business being treated. For example, a general pest service in a home under 4000 square feet will be about $89 on a bi-monthly basis. Commercial pest control will require us to give a custom estimate.
Is Monthly Pest Control Necessary?
In general, monthly pest control is not necessary. The reason is because the products we use last 60-90 days, therefore a monthly treatment would be overkill. However in rare cases, if pests are particularly pernicious, an extra treatment or monthly option may be justified.
Do New Homes Need Pest Control?
Buying a new home is a great time to get a pest control service. It’s easier to keep the pests out than to get them out once they’ve set up shop in the attic, basement, sub area, and walls. We’ll treat either way, but it’s a very good idea to get a treatment when you buy or build a new house.
Why Do I Need Pest Control?
In all honesty, pest control works and saves time, but we’re not going to pretend it’s more important than putting food on the table. If you don’t want to battle spiders, insects, and rodents, give us a call. Our mission is to make homes safer and businesses more productive.
How Often Should I Pest Control?
We do things a little bit different around here. Many pest control companies do quarterly services, 4 times a year, even in the winter. The problem we see is that the products usually aren’t effective at the 90 day mark and more customers need callbacks. In short, it doesn’t work as well as a bi-monthly treatment schedule (every other month). We skip the winter service, so that means you’ll see us 5 times per year. If you ever need additional service, we’ll come back out absolutely free.
Can Pest Control Get Rid of Mice?
Yes, pest control can definitely get rid of mice. Depending on the species and location of the mice, we will use a variety of methods to make sure they’re out of your home.
What is Home Pest Control?

What is the Best Time to do Pest Control?
This may seem obvious, but the pest time to get pest control is when or before you have pests. As far as time of day or season, there’s really no magical time for when to treat. We treat all year long except in December and January, and throughout the day.
How Do I Prepare for Pest Control?
We don’t want you to have to plan your entire day around getting a pest control treatment, so we’ve made the process pretty hands off for homeowners. In fact, after the initial treatment we don’t even require you to be at home when we treat. Once the bugs are gone from the inside of your home, we only usually need to treat the exterior, giving you a barrier of protection until the next service. You can prepare for the first treatment by tidying up your home and moving small items away from walls. Don’t worry about the heavy items or furniture.
What do I do After Pest Control?
When the service is completed, you’re good to go. We ask that you let the product dry (about a 1/2 hour) and then you and your pets can go anywhere, the product is harmless to anything bigger than a bug.
