General Pest Control Questions
WHY DO NEED A FREE INSPECTION BEFORE I CAN GET A PRICE QUOTE?
When a client inquires about a professional pest management service, many times the first question is how much the service will cost. However, no two homes or two pest problems are exactly alike nor are two pest control companies exactly the same. At Boise Pest Control Services, we customize your treatment program based on the specific information found during the free inspection process. Our professional pest control technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your home and property and provide you with a detailed report outlining recommendations for the elimination of the initial pest problem and prevention of future infestations. They will also point out areas that require your attention. This inspection is free and helps us to provide you with an accurate price quote for the solution to your pest problem.
CAN I SPRAY AND GET RID OF MY PEST PROBLEM?
Inexperienced applications of over-the-counter pest control products are usually ineffective and can also be unsafe for pets, children, and adults if used improperly. Also, most pests return unless you take steps to prevent them. In as little as 30 days, new infestations can develop. The only effective way to eliminate and prevent new infestations is to use a reputable pest prevention company with an ongoing service plan.
WHY SHOULD I HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PEST PREVENTION FIRM?
By the time you make the decision to look into pest management services, you have most likely tried it yourself (over-the-counter treatments can kill some pests but are not as effective at providing continuous prevention from re-infestation) and found that most pests are relentless. Most homeowners also lack the time and expertise to handle specific pest situations that are encountered in and around the home or office. At Boise Pest Control Services, our pest professionals are trained in the safe handling and proper application of pest treatments. Our entire team is educated and trained in the elimination of your specific pest problem and the prevention of its return.
IS THIS SAFE FOR MY FAMILY AND PETS?
Boise Pest Control Services’ first priority is the safety of our customers, as well as being good stewards of the environment. This means that we take the time to develop a customized pest control program and use strategic targeting, which enables us to use the least amount of pest control product while providing superior results. All materials are EPA approved and all technicians are trained in the safe handling and application of all materials.
WILL I FEEL SECURE WITH YOUR PEST CONTROL PROFESSIONALS IN MY HOME?
All Boise Pest Control Services job applicants are required to pass a series of interviews and background checks (which include criminal and drug tests) before they are even considered for employment. All technicians go through on-the-job training with a highly experienced trainer for the first month. All of our employees are friendly, professional, and know that our first priority is safety.
HOW SOON CAN ECONOMY EXTERMINATORS COME TO MY HOME?
All of our technicians are instantly available via phone, which also gives us the ability to respond quickly to your needs. Our friendly customer service representatives pride themselves on quick and efficient one-call scheduling to save you time and hassle. In emergency cases, we can provide same-day service. Whether you live in the Boise, Meridian, or Nampa area, we are just a phone call away!
DO I HAVE TO LEAVE MY HOME WHEN YOU PROVIDE SERVICE?
In most situations, it will not be necessary to leave your home, but we will ask you to leave the immediate area where your pest technician is working. Utmost care is used in the application and choice of pest control products. If it becomes necessary for you to be out of your home during a treatment, this will be arranged in advance for your convenience. Caring Service…it’s not just our motto, it’s how we do business.
HOW SOON BEFORE WE CAN EXPECT RESULTS?
You will see a noticeable reduction in pest activity within one to two days. Depending on the pest and the choice of materials necessary to give the best long term results, it is not unusual to notice a gradual reduction up to 14 days. If you notice pest activity after 7 days, please call our office to set up a free follow-up service. On-going pest monitoring is part of our service and is the best way to detect new pest problems. Our goal is your total satisfaction!
IS A PREVENTATIVE PLAN NECESSARY?
There is a big difference between pest control and pest prevention. A service plan like Boise Pest Control Services Program is the only truly effective way to eliminate pests and prevent them from coming back. The Pest Program covers you against the most common pest in the Boise area. This means that you won’t have a problem with any of the covered pests again — and if you do, Boise Pest Control Services’ unlimited extra service will correct the problem at no additional charge.
