Why don't you have contracts?
At Foss Pest Control we do not require you to sign a contract with us for pest control service. This is an extension of our honesty without compromise business philosophy. We will keep your business by providing a quality service, not by binding you with a written contract. We do however; provide maintenance service in which we will service your home or business at a regular time interval.
How often do I need service?
That really is up to you. We recommend quarterly service for residential customers and some of our commercial customers. Food service and some other higher risk commercial customers will need a monthly service. If you do not feel like you need a maintenance agreement or would like less frequent service or even a one time treatment, we will provide that for you. We will customize a treatment plan to meet your needs.
What kind of treatment can I expect?
You can expect a thorough inspection with a detailed interior and exterior treatment of your home. Special attention will be given to the areas that prompted your call without diminishing treatment to the rest of your home. Several monitoring traps will be left behind to help in future inspections Most pest problems come from outside so an important component of the treatment will be to the outside of your home. The exterior will get a three part perimeter treatment as follows:
First a band of material will be applied around the house with a power sprayer. This will prevent crawling insects from approaching the house.
Second a band of baits will be applied outside of the first band. This will help lower ant populations around the house and prevent them from foraging inside.
Finally dusts or liquids will be applied to entry points around doors, windows and weep holes. This kills pests that are harboring in these areas and prevents them from gaining entry into your home.
What pests are covered by this treatment?
This treatment will cover common ants, spiders, cockroaches, scorpions and other common occasion invaders. Insects not covered are Termites and other wood destroying insects, Bees and Bedbugs. We treat all of these pests, but the specialized treatment required is not included in typical maintenance programs. We will gladly provide you with an estimate for these services.
What is your Guarantee?
If you have a maintenance plan with us and have issue between services we will cheerfully treat your home again, no charge, it’s on us.
