Q: How can I have fleas in my house – I don’t own any pets?
A: You don’t have to have a dog or cat to have fleas. Fleas can “ride in” on rodents, accessing your house through your garage, attic or any small openings.
Q: Sometimes, after treatment, I still see ants; why?
A: Not unusual, always give the chemical seven to ten days to work. You might see ants, or you very might not – if at the end of a week, you still see activity, call us and we will gladly perform a back-up treatment. Don't give into the temptation to add home-remedy or store bought product to areas we treated for ants; doing so will only dilute our chemical and prevent it from being able to finish the job in seven to ten days.
Q: Why sign up for year round treatment, is there a need for pest control in the winter?
A: Pests are like any other being; they need food, water, and shelter and they will enter your house to get away from the elements. Your house should be treated before spiders lay eggs, mice have babies, and any other pest prepares to settle into your home for the winter.
Q: Do I have to sign a contract for Action to come to my house?
A: No, even though it is in your best interest to have year round pest control, Action will come to your house for one particular problem – no strings attached. You will still receive the same professional service and guarantee.
Q: What is IPM?
A: IPM stands for Integrated Pest Management -- a combination of methods and services to keep pests at an "acceptable level." IPM is site and pest inspections and monitoring that includes non-chemical solutions to control pest problems, such as sanitation or repair plans to your home/business, and chemical spraying when your non-toxic options are unreasonable or have been exhausted.
