The X-Terminator FAQ

pest infestation

The X-Terminator receives several frequently asked questions about various types of pest control. Read the following questions and answers below to see if they address the inquiries you have.

Why should I hire a professional pest control company instead of doing it myself?

Many customers end up wasting time and money buying and applying over the counter products that just don’t work. These products also contain harsh chemicals, whereas our products do not. Save yourself time and money in the long run by calling The X-Terminator right away—we’ll get rid of bugs the right way quickly.

How long will the pest extermination process take?

It depends on many factors, such as the type of pest, size of the property, and how severe the infestation is. A routine any service will take less than an hour while a rodent problem may require multiple extended visits.

Is there anything I should do to prepare my home prior to the treatment?

We advise you to remove pet food, water dishes, exposed food items, and children’s toys from the areas we need to treat.

If the exterior of my house or yard is sprayed right before it rains, will the treatment wash away?

While they do need some time to dry, treatments are still effective even if it rains.

How often should I get a termite inspection?

Every year, no matter the age or condition of the home.

Will I have to leave my home for the service?

For most pest control services, you do not have to leave at all. There are certain medical conditions where we would recommend the customer leave the area; for example, those on oxygen should leave the home until the dust settles. Other services may require you to leave your home—for example; flea, and some roach treatments, require that you leave the home for four to six hours.
