Frequently asked questions

  • 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.

  • 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

  • How do I get rid of bed bugs?

    Bed bugs are one of the most common pest problems in California. People inadvertently pick them up on their travels when the tiny insects crawl into clothing or luggage from an infested hotel room. They are then carried into other hotels, apartments and homes where they crawl around at night to seek blood meals and places to shelter.

    For businesses, it is essential to have a monitoring program to detect bed bugs as early as possible before an infestation spreads. New bed bugs can be brought in to your property at any time and they can quickly find places to hide and breed.

    Once you detect an infestation it is important to thoroughly survey your property to establish its extent. Our specialists are highly trained to survey all the places bed bugs could hide and determine the best available treatments.

    There are a number of treatments available to eradicate all the life stages of bed bugs, including non-chemical and chemical treatments.

    Check out our bed bug pages for more advice on detection and treatments to eliminate bedbugs.

  • How do I get rid of rats?

    Rats need to be close to sources of food to survive, so removing food sources for these pests and preventing access to food will help get rid of them. For example, close your garbage cans and pick up garbage that is on the ground.

    Rats are clever and agile which gives them a good ability to find any weak spot in a building to find shelter and food. A thorough building inspection is an important step to look for weak points. Seal holes in your property, even if they are very small as rats can get through a quarter-sized hole. Ensure vegetation (including trees) is not too close to your property as it can give shelter to pests and a route into your building if it is growing on or touching a wall, roof or cables.

    There are several types of device and treatments available for eliminating a population of rats, including:

    • Traps
    • Bait stations
    • Fumigation

    We can provide a free inspection of your property to assess the extent of a rat infestation and the potential entry points and recommend tailored treatments to eliminate the rats.
