Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I have my house/cabin sprayed?
This all depends on the pest problem. Seasons for pests vary and will be discussed with you to ensure you receive the best targeted service. For example: spiders may require two applications, one in the spring and one in the fall, where asian beetles bugs may require only one application in the fall. Properly timed exterior treatments will keep pests from entering your home. Mouse control can be scheduled as needed or as a scheduled service. This is common for cabin/ seasonal clients. We can assist you in finding a schedule that meets both your time, pest issue and budget so you can enjoy your home, cabin or business pest free.
