Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I need extermination?
The answer to this question is pretty simple. If you see just a few ants or just one mouse, those few ants or one mouse have a whole bunch of buddies lurking where you can’t see them. If you have even a slightly visible problem then you have a problem. Left untreated, you could have a crisis.
What are your “environmentally sound alternatives?”
Bugstoppers Inc. is in the 21st century and we have already gone green! Along with the Advance Termite baiting system, we use products from EcoSMART Technologies. These are state-of-the-art low toxicity chemicals that are much less harmful to people, pets, and their environments than what is currently offered by the majority of the pest control market.
I have a whole bunch of pests and a lot of them. Do you have a solution?
If you have a feeling one treatment isn’t enough to keep your house pest free, we offer a couple of different options.
How long do I have to leave the premises?
Because we use low toxicity chemicals, you can usually stay home during the treatment. Flea and spider treatments require you to leave for 2-3 hours. Roaches, ants, mice, termites, and just about everything else can be taken care of while you’re relaxing on the living room couch.
What about pets and children?
Children need to leave during the treatment and may return 2-3 hours after completion. We ask that during treatments, you either put your pets in a room that is not being treated or remove them from the structure until the materials we have used are dry. Fish tanks need to be covered.
Do the chemicals you use have a real bad odor?
Another great benefit of low toxicity chemicals is virtually odorless pest control. No longer do you need to be reminded that you received extermination by a nasty, lingering odor.
Do you guarantee your work?
We stand behind all of our work. Should any problems arise within a reasonable amount of time after the completion of the job, we will return for no extra charge, completely hassle-free.
