General FAQs about Pest Control

Why should I hire a professional pest control company?

By the time you make the decision to consider pest management services, you have most likely tried it yourself and found that most pests are relentless. Your schedule is hectic and busy. You probably don’t have the time to take care of it yourself or you might not be sure what type of bug you are dealing with. This is where we step in.

Are the treatments safe for my family and pets?

Our priority at Mantis Pest Solutions is the safety of our customers, as well as being good stewards of the environment. That means that we take the time to develop a customized pest control program and use strategic targeting, which enables us to use the least amount of pest control product while providing superior results.

Do I have to leave my home open when you perform services?

In most situations, it will not be necessary to leave your home. The utmost care is used in application and choice of pest control products. If it becomes necessary for you to be out of your home during a treatment, this will be arranged in advance for your convenience.

Is a recurring service plan necessary?

To get rid of annoying pests and keep them out of your home, a regular service is necessary. Each season brings specific bugs. So, a regular service is also necessary to break the egg and nesting patterns of the insects. Insect eggs are resistant to pesticides. Even though we serviced your home, most of the eggs that pests have already laid will hatch in future months. A recurring service plan provides you with year-round protection from pests as well as those migrating over from your neighbor’s property.

What happens if the bugs come back?

Annoying pests are always trying to find their way into my home to find food, shelter, water or all three! When the bugs return, just give us a call. Your service is fully guaranteed! We return for free to spot treat any areas of the home that need a little extra attention.

Are Chiggers and bed bugs the same?

Bed bug bites and chigger “bites” look very similar which can be confusing to many people. It is important to know that when chiggers bite an enzyme is secreted that breaks down your skin cells. Both bed bugs and chiggers are annoying, but treatment for chiggers and treatment for bed bugs are completely different. (We hope you have chiggers because they are easier to get rid of then bed bugs.) If you think you might have bed bugs you can learn more here about our bed bug heat treatments or just call us so we can identify and eliminate your pest problems before you get an infestation.
