    • Does the company have a good reputation?
    • Are they knowledgeable about my unique challenges regarding pest control?
    • Do they have a thorough training program?
    • Do they guarantee their work?
    • Are they financially sound so they can back up their guarantee?
    • Are they licensed?
    • Are their employees security screened?
    • Are they knowledgeable about the regulatory issues in my business pertaining to pest control, sanitation and related issues?

What Makes Pickett Pest Control Different

  • My current provider has been spraying my facility for a pest problem, but the bugs keep coming back. What’s the problem?

    What are the prices for your services?

    Effective pest control involves much more than just applying pesticide. To combat any pest problem, it is critical to do a comprehensive inspection of the facility to correctly identify the pest, locate harbor-age areas and to identify possible entry points. All potential pest-entry points should be sealed. Pesticides should be used only as needed and when targeting a specific pest species. Using pesticides improperly may even cause pest infestations to worsen. For best results, you may want to consult another professional pest control company to take advantage of their knowledge and training to combat pest problems. Pickett Pest Control offers free consultations—call today.

  • Why should I hire Pickett Pest Control when I could try to do it myself?

    Why should I hire Pickett Pest Control when I could try to do it myself?

    Quite a few customers call us in frustration after they have already wasted time and money buying and applying over-the-counter products to control their ant, spider, flea or other general pest problems. Homeowners very often over-apply pesticides, resulting in unnecessary personal exposure, or potential environmental harm. Pickett Pest Control will solve your problem efficiently without you having to buy, apply or store pesticides. We also offer a 30-day guarantee on one-time/as needed treatments. If your pest problem persists within 30 days of your treatment, we will come back for additional service at no additional cost to you.

    In addition to an intensive training program for all our employees, we also place a large emphasis on Integrated Pest Management (IPM).

  • What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

    What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

    Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, is an environmentally responsible approach to pest control that takes advantage of all pest management options. At the most basic level, IPM practitioners recognize that pests seek habitats that provide their essential needs for survival, such as food, water, and shelter. By removing some of these basic elements, or by blocking access to them, IPM programs can impose a significant degree of control over pests before chemical pesticides are employed.

  • What type of materials do you use and how toxic are they?

    What type of materials do you use and how toxic are they?

    Most of the pesticides we use are classified in “Category III” – the lowest in toxicity. Additionally, many of the materials that we use are natural oils or plant derivatives. Our goal is to expose only pests to pesticides by carefully following all of the manufacturer’s instructions as well as all rules and regulations from our licensing agencies. Even relatively non-toxic materials still require proper safety precautions.

  • Do you offer any ‘green’ pest control options?

    Do you offer any ‘green’ pest control options?

    Yes! We offer natural, chemical-free options and low-toxic solutions for the customer to choose from when developing an individual pest management program. Our treatment plans are always designed to reduce or eliminate pests while minimizing customer concerns regarding chemicals; this may include repair or exclusion work, improvements in sanitation, interior/exterior baiting, harborage reduction, habitat modification, and alternative controls. Many of the options are eco-exempt and organics, including granules, botanicals, clove oil, insecticidal soaps, and more.

  • When you come to spray my house, how long will it take?

    When you come to spray my house, how long will it take?

    It depends on the type of pest and many other factors. A routine initial service for ants, for example, will often take less than an hour, but a whole house treatment for spiders can take over an hour and still control the problem for several months. Your technician will recommend things you can do to reduce pest pressure around your home. Rodent problems may require several service visits and cultural control measures as well.

  • Can I be at home during treatment or do I need to leave?

    Can I be at home during treatment or do I need to leave?

    In most cases you do not need to leave for the service. Your technician will advise you if it is necessary to leave the home, or only to avoid specific areas until any treated surfaces have had time to dry. Advise your technician of any sensitive persons, pets, or organic gardens requiring extra care. Fish ponds are especially sensitive and care will be taken to avoid any exposure.

About Our Treatments

  • Is there anything I need to do to my home prior to Pest Control treatment?

    Is there anything I need to do to my home prior to Pest Control treatment?

    In most cases your technician can work around everything in your home. Your technician will advise you to remove pet food, water dishes, exposed food items, and children’s toys from areas he needs to treat. If there are active pests indoors, other items may need attention.

  • What is the difference between granules and liquid spray?

    What is the difference between granules and liquid spray?

    A granular form of a pesticide has the active ingredient pre-diluted and impregnated on clay, paper or other sand-like particles. Granules can be equally effective as sprays in damp winter conditions for a variety of crawling perimeter pests (ants, earwigs, millipedes, etc.). Sprays are most effective in creating an invisible barrier around the home that pests have to cross to be affected.

  • What if I touch an area that has been sprayed?

    What if I touch an area that has been sprayed?

    You should avoid any treated areas until dry. That is the minimum precaution for virtually all pesticides. If you accidentally touch a moist deposit or are otherwise exposed to a diluted pesticide, wash the exposed skin with soap and water. Remember that most of the common materials that we apply have been highly diluted and should not cause any ill effects. Consult the specific pesticide label for any further recommendations. Our service invoice and your technician will have further instructions for the specific products applied.

  • Is it safe for my pet to go outside after spraying?

    Is it safe for my pet to go outside after spraying?

    Every pesticide requires that pets and people avoid treated surfaces until dry. This is the minimum standard for all products. Once dry, the material will not be easily transferred to paws or human skin.

  • If my house is treated inside, when will it be safe for my children to crawl or play on the ground?

    If my house is treated inside, when will it be safe for my children to crawl or play on the ground?

    Generally 2 to 4 hours or until dry. Your technician will inform you in advance of any precautions required by the label and our safety policy. If you have any questions you can always feel free to call our office.

  • If my house is sprayed right before it rains will the pest control treatment wash away?

    If my house is sprayed right before it rains will the pest control treatment wash away?

    Pesticide applied to eaves, around windows, under patio covers, and many pest harborages will be effective even if it rains. Dormant Oil sprays need to dry a little before it rains to smother overwintering insect eggs on shrubs. If pests re-appear within 30 days, we will be happy to do extra service under our standard guarantee.

  • Do I have to empty my cupboards before the interior of my house is sprayed or treated?

    Do I have to empty my cupboards before the interior of my house is sprayed or treated?

    Sometimes, depending on the pest and the type of treatment. For German Cockroaches it is necessary to remove all the food and dishes to allow us to get access to every cockroach hiding place we can find.

  • Should I shampoo my carpet before or after getting the inside of my house treated for pests?

    Should I shampoo my carpet before or after getting the inside of my house treated for pests?

    If you are planning to shampoo the carpet, doing so before treatment will maximize your treatment benefits. Sometimes fleas are so bad that the carpet cleaner will not enter the room until we have sprayed! In that case, a re-application should be scheduled following the carpet cleaning.

  • Is there anything I can use on the ants inside my house before my service technician comes for treatment?

    Is there anything I can use on the ants inside my house before my service technician comes for treatment?

    You can use soap and water for ants all over the counter. Other household and over the counter sprays may complicate control, so please ask the technician first before applying any chemical yourself.

What We Can Help You With

  • I have a bug and I don’t know what it is. Can you help me?

    I have a bug and I don’t know what it is. Can you help me?

    Sure! Our technicians can usually identify a bug by asking you a few questions about where you found it, size, color, and general shape.

  • Help! I have bed bugs. Can you get rid of them?

    Help! I have bed bugs. Can you get rid of them?

    Yes, but be prepared for a major effort. Controlling bed bugs can take time and multiple follow-up treatments. Pricing will depend on the size of the area to be treated as well as the type and number of treatments. The first step in this process is to call us and request a bed bug inspection.

  • How are pests getting inside my house?

    How are pests getting inside my house?

    There are often many areas around the exterior of the home that can either be a pest attractant or an area conducive to pests. These may include vents, windows, eaves, debris around the home, landscaping issues, etc. Before applying treatment, your Pickett Pest Control Service Technician will do an inspection and walk-around of your house to help identify any problem areas. They note any problems on the inspection form, and make suggestions of what can be done to reduce pest pressure.

  • Can you help get rid of rats or other rodents?

    Can you help get rid of rats or other rodents?

    Absolutely. Most of our technicians have a lot of rodent control experience. Rodent proofing services are also available. We understand it’s tempting to toss “De-con” bait around, however we strongly recommend you DON’T, as this will often lead to dead animal odors and flies, and, frequently, no easy solution to locate or remove the animal. Trapping and exclusion are the best first steps in most rodent problems.

  • What about termites, fleas, spiders, etc.?

    What about termites, fleas, spiders, etc.?

    If it can invade in your home, we can help! When you request your free in-home evaluation, let us know about any pests you currently have. Then after the inspection, we’ll give you a customized treatment plan to eliminate every pest we found.
