6 Things to Expect from a Pest Control Visit

Keeping your house free of any pests or rodents is not only important for cleanliness, but also for sanitation reasons as well. If you’ve noticed some unwanted critters in your home recently, it might be time for you to schedule a pest control visit from Palmetto Exterminators. After more than 58 years serving South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia, we’ve seen and treated almost every kind of problem. Whether you need an introduction to general pest control services in Columbia, SC or need the first inspection from an exterminator Charlotte, NC, you’ll want to be prepared to get the most out of your pest control visit. Here are the 6 things you can expect from our Pest Control Service program:

Exterior Perimeter Service

Our program reduces the need for and use of chemicals inside your home. We focus on controlling pests on the outside of your home with an approach called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). We only need to inspect or treat inside your home during your initial service or if you are having a pest problem inside between our Quarterly Perimeter Service.

Professional and Convenient

Most homeowners are not home during the day when we perform our exterior services. Palmetto’s exterior service is convenient and you can count on our professional technicians to inspect and treat your home accordingly when you are not home. Since they are going to be maneuvering around your home, you should feel comfortable with their presence and confident in their capabilities.

Entry Area Inspections

A thorough inspection of easy entry points for bugs and rodents should be expected during the appointment. This includes checking around windows, doors, garages, and especially crawl spaces. Our technicians also check for any cracks around your home, whether they may be visible or hidden, and treat them accordingly.

Scanning the Yard

Not only is the exterior of your property important for inspection, but your outdoor yard space is equally as valuable when determining causes for pest problems. Checking around the property can potentially uncover the root of an infestation or conditions conducive to pest activity.

Moisture Inspection

Areas around or in the house that are damp and hold more moisture are especially attractive for bugs. Your technician will closely inspect your home to find issues that could pose threats for the future, like standing water, thick mulch, and overgrown vegetation.

Report the Findings

Your technician may need to take a few minutes to gather their information in a presentable and understandable way. It’s important for them to discuss the issues with you so you know the best way to move forward and how to prevent these issues in the future. If you are not home we can send you a service report.

It’s critical to know what to expect when scheduling a pest control visit, so you can stay informed and receive the best possible treatment solutions.
