Do you spray every year?
Federal and state laws are clear - AERO Pest Control, Inc. follows the product label which has directions for use.

How long will treatments last?

The un-asked part of your question is "How do I prevent a problem or stop a re-occurance?" AERO Pest Control, Inc. technicians do not simply rely on the toxicity of products to stop a re-occurance of an infesting pest. A thorough inspection is the key to prevention. Experience and specialized equipment help a technician identify and anticipate the conditions favorable for a pest infestation.
Why don't I smell anything after our service?
An integrated pest management approach may not include a chemical application at all, but new liquid treatments have a designed chemistry with little vapors. This reduces the unintended effects of chemical applications.
Do you have to drill anywhere on my property?
It depends. Wood destroying organisms (like termites) infest properties and cause structural damage in hidden places. AERO Pest Control, Inc. professionals use specialized equipment to protect property by treating wood or applying chemical barriers to hidden and difficult to reach places, such as under the foundation and around the perimeter of your home. There are current products that do not necessitate drilling. Each product is different.

Do I need your services every year?
Intervals of service may change based on the type of pest and the situation at your property. Pest services often occur annually, bi-annually, monthly, or even weekly based on the circumstances. State regulations often require AERO Pest Control, Inc. to inspect on an annual basis and report the results of that inspection to the owner or their agent in writing.
