If you're like most people, when you have a pest problem you have a lot of questions. If you've tried calling other companies you've probably talked to a busy receptionist that was happy to schedule (and charge you for) a visit from on of their exterminators. When you have a pest problem you don't need to talk to a receptionist, you need to talk to a pest control expert. How do you know what kind of problem you have? How do you prepare? What will eliminating the problem cost? Most pest control companies don't make time to answer your questions. At Responders we put you on the phone directly with our exterminators so you can get the information you need. We continue to offer customer support after the job is finished so you can remain pest free.
Finding one bug in the house may or may not be a big deal. There are times when a stray one wanders into the home and is discovered quickly. At other times, noticing some type of bug or rodent scurrying along a baseboard is a bit like viewing the tip of an iceberg.
The only way to know for sure is to give us a call. We can conduct a complete home inspection and determine if what you saw was something of an anomaly or if there are thousands of unwelcome guests settling into your walls, in the attic, and deep into the insulation. Depending on what we find, we can help you get rid of the pests and also make some changes that prevent them from coming back.
The thing about pests in the house is that they are not going to go away just because you want them gone. A more likely scenario is that they will lay eggs or reproduce at a rate that leads to a full scale problem faster than you thought possible.
Even if you believe there isn’t any real issue just yet, it makes sense to give us a call. In the best case scenario, we’ll confirm that only a few pests have invaded the home and take care of them. We’ll also identify the most likely points of entry and provide you with suggestions on how to keep them the pests from gaining access a second time.
In the worst case scenario, we’ll find that the infestation is in full swing and there’s no time to waste. When you call us at the first sign of a problem, what you are really doing is preventing rodents from ripping your insulation to shreds, wreaking havoc with the home wiring, and protecting your clothing from becoming the stuff that nests are made of.
When you first call us for help, our focus is on evaluating the problem and taking care of it as quickly as possible. Once that’s done, we will talk with you about what can be done to keep the same problem from developing again. Along with closing those points of entry, our team will discuss the idea of periodic treatments inside and outside that keep pets at bay.
With our service contracts, you will learn why having the home treated monthly or semi-monthly reduces the odds of having another infestation. Remember that it’s not just about preventing the same type of pest from getting into your home. It’s also about understanding what kind of pests are common in your area and using those treatments as a proactive means of keeping them at bay.
What we want for every one of our customers is the comfort of living in a pest-free home. Whether that means getting rid of an existing problem or taking steps to prevent one from developing in the future, we have the knowledge and the skill to help.
