Comprehensive Pest Control Program
Patton Termite & Pest Control offers a comprehensive, proactive pest management service designed to protect your family from crawling insects, spiders, and mice. During the first service, Patton technicians will conduct an extensive initial inspection in and around your home. During the course of examining your home, we will look for access points for sealing that will keep pests out. We will also knock down wasp nests and spider webbing.
With our service plan, we provide interior and exterior perimeter treatments. In the winter we can provide an attic treatment for spiders and other insects that tend to migrate into attic spaces to escape the cold. Your service technician will install zone monitors in strategic places inside the home to provide a 24/7 monitor for the tech to assess each time they service your home. The service provided is based on your seasonal needs. Since we are a local company, we know what pests are active each season. If pests show up between our regular services, we will return, at no extra charge, until the pests are gone.
In addition to structural and health related pest control, Patton offers the world’s best remedial and preventive termite control, the Sentricon© Termite Colony Elimination System with Always Active Technology. It offers a green answer to preventing and eliminating termites.
The National Pest Management Association and the entire pest control industry are committed to managing termite destruction with the best technology and treatment operations. All professional pest control products have been registered for use by the EPA. When they are applied according to label instructions by technicians who have been trained and licensed to use them, they pose virtually no risk. Our technicians are trained to use the utmost care when treating around children and pets. Our mission is to use the safest methods of pest control to effectively eliminate your pest problem.
Residential Pest Control Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I have to leave my house during pest control service?
A: For a routine residential pest control service, you generally don’t need to leave the house. This includes pets as well. With a traditional service, such as a liquid spray, you do need to make sure that all pets and children are kept off of the treated surface areas until they are dry. The materials generally dry within 30 minutes.
We do have some specialty services like Bed Bug treatments and Flea treatments that require all pets and persons to be out of the home for a period of time, but this is not the case with a routine pest control service.
Q: Is pest control safe for my pets or kids?
A: All of our technicians are trained to treat safety as a priority. Patton Termite & Pest Control is a family owned and operated company so we recognize the importance of keeping families and pets safe, especially in their own homes. All materials are used according to labels and guidelines so that we are keeping your pets and family out of harm’s way. We also offer Green Services for people wanting to limit exposure to insecticides in their homes.
Q: I’m very busy during the week, will the exterminator be able to work around my schedule?
A: Yes! At Patton Termite & Pest Control we do not give you a generic window of time that we will be out to your house. We call you to schedule your appointment on a day and time that works best for you. We try our best to be on time, usually no later or earlier than about 15 minutes within the scheduled time. If we are going to miss that time frame, we will call you. We want to make scheduling easy and convenient for the customer.
Q: Do I need to pull everything away from the walls before pest control service?
A: No, you do not need to pull things away from the wall. We work around the furniture and objects in your home.
Q: I haven’t seen any bugs lately, do I still need to do the regular service?
A: Yes! We are very happy that you aren’t seeing bugs. The absence of pests is the result of effective service. To maintain a pest free environment in your home, however, you shouldn’t skip services. The materials we use can break down and wear off. We can stay ahead of your pests by inspecting and responding to your seasonal needs.
Q: Do you treat the yard as well as the house for pests?
A: We treat structural pests. This generally does not include the yard. Our main concern is inside and outside of the home and garage and around the foundation, door seals, and windows. We do offer some specialty services, however, for fleas, ticks, and mosquitos in the yard. If you have health-related pests that sting, bite, or suck blood we can extend the service to your property lines. Usually we charge extra for the extended service.
Q: I can’t get rid of these pests. Do I need to burn my house down?
A: We have not come across a pest problem yet that required such drastic measures. We will work with you from beginning to end to make sure the pest infestation is eliminated. Often times, pest elimination is a cooperative effort between our technician and the homeowner. As long as you follow recommended clean-up, exclusion, or preventative measures we are confident we can keep your home pest free.
