FAQ’S

How much does it cost?
The service’s cost depends on two things—the square footage of the structure and the frequency of the service.
Do I have to sign a service agreement to do a pest control service?
Yes, we do require a service agreement for both single and routine services. Our single service agreements are generally for one month, and our routine service agreements are for a minimum of 1 year.
What payment types do we accept?
  • Cash
  • Check
  • Credit Cards
  • Venmo
  • Bill Pay (Only with routine services)
Does Eric The Bug Guy guarantee their services?
Yes. We provide warranties for our single service and maintenance plans.

A single service is covered for a single pest, and a maintenance plan is covered for several different pests.

Are our pest control methods safe?
According to the manufacturer’s labels, the chemicals are non-toxic once it has dried. This is the reason why we ask you to leave the house or establishment for a specific period, especially if the services will be conducted inside your home. We also ask you to keep your pets away from the treatment site once there is an ongoing service. All the pesticides we use are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Pesticide Regulations (DPR). Your safety is of the utmost importance to us.
Will you be required to vacate your home or business during each service?
It depends on the pest that we are treating. Most services are completed without having to vacate the home or business. However, some pests’ treatment requires a customer to vacate for up to 4 hours.
How long before a pet can go in to yard after treatment?
This depends on the weather. If it is a warm or hot day, the pesticide typically takes 15-20 minutes to dry. Our recommendation is, once the ground is completely dry, only then can your pets go into the yard.
Will the pesticides stain my floor or baseboards?
We are cautious and conscientious about our customers’ property. There are some pesticides out there that stain, but we try to stay away from those types of pesticides.
How do we treat ants?
We use a special chemical that is non-repellent. The reason for this is that ants can detect standard repellents, like an aerosol spray. The non-repellent chemical will be carried down into the nest to kill the colony, rather than just a few on the surface. Also, we use sugar bait on the home or business interior if ants come up from places that the non-repellent chemical can’t be sprayed on.
How to get rid of spiders?
The chemical we use is a 2 part chemical. One part is a knockdown, and the other part is a residual. Also, we will use a special broom called a webster to remove the reachable spider webs. The reason we do this to monitor the spider activity and deter the spiders away.
How do tell if you have bed bugs?
Bed bugs leave black marks on your bedsheets and the seam of the mattress. Also, you will normally have multiple large bites on you.
How often do you need to do service?
There are many factors to selecting the right pest control plan for you. Some pests, like spiders, require more frequent services, where other pests don’t need as many. This is the reason why we offer customized pest control plans. Another factor might be money. The more frequent the service, the more it costs.
