How long does pest control treatment last?

When we perform pest control treatments, home and business owners almost always ask us one question: how long does pest control treatment last? Well, the answer really depends on the type of pest you have! Not all insects require the same treatment strategies. For example, insects like termites and bed bugs require specialized forms of treatment. Meanwhile, ants and silverfish are comparatively not as serious to exterminate. At least, when it comes to scope of treatment. Therefore, to more clearly answer the question, let’s talk about some specific types of pest control treatment and how long they last.

 

How long does General Pest Control treatment last?

When we talk about General Pest Control, we are talking about extermination of common insects found in the home. This includes insects like spiders, moths, roaches, silverfish, roli polis, and more. When people think of pest control, this is usually what they visualize. It often involves a spray that the technician applies to the baseboards and sometimes exterior of the property. This is meant to keep insects from entering the home. This type of treatment lasts a few months, and typically needs to be deployed quarterly to make sure that the home stays protected. For more specific information about our General Pest Control Treatments, call us at (888) MRCLEGG!

 

How long does ant treatment last?

For a serious infestation of ants at your home or business, it is not recommended to have one treatment and expect that to fix the problem forever. Unfortunately ant treatment does not last forever, and it requires upkeep to ensure that ants do not return. Typically monthly visits are necessary for 3-6 months depending on the scope of the treatment. On these visits the technician will exterminate the existing ants in your home. They will also work to find the ant hill that the ants are coming from, and destroy that as well to prevent future infestation. Once the ant infestation is under control, quarterly visits are recommended to refresh the treatment and prevent future infestation. If you have ants on your property, call our Clegg’s team at (888) MRCLEGG and let us get them under control!

 

Fire Ant Extermination

 

How long does bed bug treatment last?

Bed bugs are one of the most notorious and difficult to identify insects that live here in North Carolina. They also require a specialized type of treatment to eradicate; we utilize specialized bed bug heat treatments to eliminate the infestation. Bed bug treatment should last indefinitely, but that depends on if the source of the infestation is properly identified. Unlike ants that may simply live around your house, bed bugs are normally brought into your property without your knowledge. That means that even if we completely exterminate the bed bugs currently in your home, they could be brought in again by a friend, neighbor, pet, or even yourself (unknowingly).

 

It is very important during our inspection and treatment for our technicians to identify the source of the infestation for this reason. Unless the source is identified and treated (backpack, suitcase, etc.) it is possible for the bed bugs to re-enter the home. If you are concerned you may have bed bugs, or want to learn more about bed bug prevention, call our Clegg’s team at (888) MRCLEGG. Schedule your FREE bed bug inspection today, and let one of our Clegg’s pest control heroes get to work defending your home!
