Empire Pest Defense FAQ:
Will Your West Palm Beach Pest Control Work the First Time?
The exterminators at Empire Pest Defense have been West Palm Beach pest control specialists for a long time. In that time, we’ve seen many infested properties. Getting a pest problem under control is a multi-pronged attack. In some cases, it will take periodic sprays. But that depends on what kind of a pest problem you have. Some pests will require multiple treatments. Others may require less. You may need to make modifications to your home in order to ensure that the pest problem doesn’t return.
Insects and other pests get into your home by breaching the exterior. In some cases, they may be very difficult to get out. Termites, for instance, are very tiny. Rats and mice, on the other hand, are likely exploiting cracks along the foundation. Pest control measures may kill off the extant pests in your home, but other means will be necessary to prevent infestation from occurring again.
When we said eradicating a pest problem was a multi-pronged process, we weren’t lying. Spraying or using other methods is only one element of that equation. In some cases, we may be able to eradicate the vast majority of the pest population in one treatment. The question then becomes, what happens to the 1% or so of pests that remain thereafter? Oftentimes, they can come right back.
Bed bugs, for instance, are notoriously tricky to get rid of. This is because you need one treatment for the insects themselves and another for the eggs. A spray-based approach may require multiple treatments in order to get rid of the entire population. A heat-based approach may be able to kill off all of the bed bugs, but its effectiveness would be relegated to one room at a time.
To answer the above-stated question, your home may need multiple treatments in order to rid of the vast majority of infestations. The first time around, however, you should notice a considerable improvement.
Empire Pest Defense strives to do the job correctly in the fewest amount of steps possible. While it’s impossible to guarantee that we will only spray once and then the problem will be solved, our professional approach ensures that the job will be done properly each time.
On your end, you will want to ensure that the causes of the infestation do not occur again. In some cases, it makes sense to spray on a monthly or yearly basis depending on where you live. Ultimately, you may need to do some maintenance on the exterior of your house to prevent future pest problems.
Our techs will not only help eradicate the infestation, but we can also make recommendations on preventing future infestations.
