When you have a pest problem, you want it fixed as soon as possible. Clegg’s Pest Control uses the latest and safest methods to solve your insect issues quickly. Our team is frequently asked how long pest control treatments will take to solve the problem – read on for more information regarding the different types of pest control treatment options and timelines.

What Factors Affect Treatment Timeline?

Different pests require different treatments, so the time it takes to eradicate insects, spiders, or rodents will vary from location to location due to the severity of the infestation and type of critter being treated.

Some of the biggest things that determine the length of time it will take treatments to work include:

  • The need for multiple treatments
  • Infestation severity
  • Type of treatment

If your home or business is being treated for bed bugs or termites, our pest control technicians may offer fumigation treatments which will take more time than a simple outdoor spray or bait. With other pests, like roaches or ants, your pest control technician may set up a bait station that requires the affected insects to carry the bait back to the colony to treat the entire nest. This can take up to a week in some instances.
