Q: What is a termite warranty and why do I need one?
A termite warranty works just like a warranty you may purchase on any other product or service: once we have performed an initial inspection and treatment, the warranty stands behind our work and covers you should termites appear later and cause any damage to your home.
Because a home is typically the single largest investment a person will make in his or her life, many people find that it makes sense to protect their home from termite damage by investing in a warranty.
Q: What makes Peachtree’s termite warranty different from any other company’s?
We are confident in the termite service and protection that we provide, and the terms of our warranty are a reflection of that confidence.
Q: Why do I need to purchase a separate warranty for termites? Doesn’t my homeowner’s insurance cover termite damage?
Q: Why should I pay for pest control services when I can buy pest spray at the store and apply it myself?
However, if you’ve tried doing it yourself and the problem persists or gets worse, give us a call. You could potentially be dealing with a species of pest that is relatively new to our region, such as the tawny crazy ant. If this is the case, you probably will not see much success on your own with just a general-purpose product.
We are always ready to come out and complete a thorough inspection to identify the specific pests you’re seeing (and maybe some that you aren’t seeing) as well as their potential entry points, harborages and food sources. We can then provide a comprehensive treatment plan utilizing integrated pest management (IPM) solutions to thoroughly treat the problem.
Q: How often do you come to my home or business to treat for bugs?
We can provide one-time service or set up weekly, monthly, quarterly or annual visits—whatever is needed to get the job done and ensure that pests are kept under control.
Q: Is it OK for my children and pets to be around the chemicals that you use?
It’s also important to understand that, because we utilize integrated pest management techniques and solutions, the use of chemical pesticides is the last measure we take when treating and protecting your home or business.
When chemical application is necessary, our customers’ concerns are typically lessened knowing that we follow all label instructions for proper application. Many of our customers are also reassured to learn that many of the pesticide products we use contain the same or similar ingredients that are found in popular pet medications for the prevention of fleas, ticks and other bugs.
Q: Is the technician who comes to my house properly trained?
We also hold continuing education units for all employees on a monthly basis, so you can rest assured that Peachtree staff members are up-to-date on all the latest trends and techniques in the pest control industry.
Q: I maintain my house and keep it clean—how did I get bed bugs? Where did they come from?
Bed bugs can also be introduced into your home by guests who have traveled and brought in luggage, or even by overnight guests who unknowingly transported one on their clothing.
Q: Do I have to throw everything away if I have bed bugs?
Q: What happens if I am not at home when you arrive?
If your service plan includes interior treatment or if you requested it for that service call, you can leave a key, leave it open, or call us to arrange another time when you will be home. It’s totally up to you and what you’re comfortable with—and there is never an additional charge for coming back to treat the interior.
