Do you provide bed bug extermination service? If so, how much does it cost?

Getting rid of bed bugs can be very difficult. There is no magic wand which can control these blood-sucking pests. Control of bed bugs can take time and multiple follow-up treatments. The first part of any bed bug control program is a thorough inspection. This includes not only areas that are infested, but also adjoining areas. The inspection can be time consuming, based upon amount of furnishings and size of infested area as well as the adjoining areas.

When treatment is needed, pricing will depend on the size of the area to be treated as well as the type of treatment. If standard control, using products specifically applied for bed bugs, you can expect to remove carpet edges where necessary, perhaps outlet plates and some personal belongings. If heat treatment is used in areas offering that service, certain materials must be removed such as candles, makeup, etc. to make a blanket statement about the cost to get rid of bed bugs in every case.

The conditions of each property are different, and therefore the problems are different for each house. Thus, quotes and estimates for the cost of bed bug control are best done locally and perhaps after an inspection by a qualified Pest Specialist.

The first step in this process is to call us and request a bed bug inspection. A highly trained and bed bug-qualified Gulf Coast Specialist will conduct a very thorough inspection of your premises. Upon completion of the inspection and an assessment of the situation, the Pest Specialist will recommend a customized solution for your bed bug problem, which will include pricing and guarantees.

When I call your office with a pest problem, how fast can you respond with treatment?

We try our best to meet your needs efficiently and effectively. With that being said, our summer months are busy, and we give top priority to all of our regular maintenance customers. Even in our peak months, we can usually have help on the way within a day or two, and even sooner for emergencies. Remember, good service providers are often busy, but are worth the wait!

When you come to spray my house how long will it take?

It depends on the type of pest and many other factors. A routine initial service for ants, for example, will often take less than an hour, and still control the problem for several months. Your technician will recommend things you can do to reduce pest pressure around your home. Rodent problems may require several service visits and cultural control measures as well.

Your technician will advise you if it is necessary to leave the home, or only to avoid specific areas until any treated surfaces have had time to dry. Advise your technician of any sensitive persons, pets, or organic gardens requiring extra care. Fish ponds are especially sensitive and care will be taken to avoid any exposure.
