Frequently asked questions

  • How much does pest control cost?

    There are many factors that determine the cost of pest control, which makes it impossible to give a fixed price for treating each pest in every situation.

    The price is determined by factors including:

    • Pest type
    • Extent of the infestation
    • Size and type of property
    • Treatments chosen
    • Number of treatments required to eliminate the pest
    • Service options chosen, such as monitoring and prevention services

    We will do an initial survey and present you with a quote and recommendations for your specific pest problem. We will discuss our recommendations and options with you for you to choose the services you want. See more details on our pest control costs page

    To request a survey and quote please call us at 800-937-8398 or submit a contact form.

  • How often should I check my home for termites?

    Termites can cause significant damage in only 3 years, therefore, we recommend that you should have an inspection every 2–3 years or less in high-risk areas.

    If you already notice some signs of termite activity in your home, such as damaged timber, mud tubes, small piles of wood dust on the floor or flying termites, then you should have a professional inspection immediately.

    Termites can be actively devouring your timbers for years before signs become visible. It is important to identify the species of termite, as some are more voracious than others, then get an assessment of the extent of the infestation and damage already caused.

    Call us at 800-937-8398 or contact us online to arrange a termite survey.

  • Who is responsible for pests in a rented property?

    Both the landlord and tenant are responsible for keeping a property free of pests. The landlord is required to provide a property that is free of pests and take suitable measures to keep it pest free.

    The potential impact of a pest infestation for a landlord is high tenant turnover, negative publicity, vacant properties, compensation claims and high costs of treatment.

    The tenant should practice levels of sanitation that do not encourage pests such as fleas, cockroaches, flies, rats and mice. A tenant should also report a pest problem to the landlord as soon as possible so that an infestation can be dealt with before it grows into a larger, more expensive problem.

    Western Exterminator has decades of experience in providing pest control services for rental properties in Salinas.

  • What is the best way to prevent pest infestations?

    The best way to prevent a pest infestation is to make your home as unappealing to pests as you can. Pests need food, shelter and moisture, so preventing them getting these in your property is a good first step. Maintaining your property so that there are no routes of access is also important. Check out our pest pages for advice on detecting and preventing pests, such as rodents, termites and ants.

    However, knowing what pests might find attractive about your property and where the weak points are can be a challenge. This may require professional help.

    The best way to find out how to stop pests is to contact your local Western Exterminator office and discuss pest prevention methods. Signing up for a pest prevention program can save you money in the long run.

Termite inspection in Salinas, CA

An annual termite inspection is essential to detect termite activity and prevent damage to your property. Our termite experts can assess your property by conducting a thorough survey and recommend the most appropriate course of action to keep you safe from damage or remove an existing infestation.

When selling a home a real estate termite inspection helps you comply with full disclosure laws. For a buyer, a WDO (wood destroying organism) inspection should be part of the escrow instructions to make sure you are buying a property that is free of termite damage or risk of damage.
