Frequently Asked Questions
How do I prevent ants?
The best way to prevent ants is to keep your home clean. If they do not find food or water they will not come back in. This means you should repair any leaks. Cleaning up after each meal by doing the dishes and wiping down the counters can help. Taking out the trash each day is also important.
How do I find the cockroach nests?
Cockroaches like to nest in small enclosed spaces like behind or underneath a refrigerator or between the spaces behind the counters. An exterminator can use a flushing agent to cause the roaches to come out of their nests to help with treating them.
How do I tell if I have termites?
The easiest way is to schedule a termite inspection, which will look at spaces including your crawlspace and your attic. If you see damaged wood or your floors start to squeak you may termites. Mud tubes along your foundation are another sign.
