Depending on the type of pests involved, it may take anywhere from a day or two to a couple of months to completely rid your Sacramento home or business of pests. The pest control process in Sacramento can vary widely depending on the type of pest and the company doing the work, but there are some common, basic steps that pest control companies should follow. These steps include:
The pest control company should do a thorough inspection of your home’s entry points – where pests can enter your home. This includes checking around pipes, crawl spaces, attics, doors, windows, and garages. Other entry points may include gaps or holes in siding, roof fascia, tree branches that hang over the roof, old weatherstripping, gaps near gas or plumbing lines, and gutters. During this inspection, they should be able to determine which types of pests are creating a problem. They should also check the area around your home or business to determine if any outside pests are a potential threat.
After completing a thorough inspection of your property and reviewing the findings, they should provide you with a report that includes a plan for pest management.
ADDRESS IMMEDIATE ISSUES
They should take care of addressing issues that need immediate attention. This may include a variety of methods to get your pest problem under control, including treating the perimeter of your home or yard, placing baits, or setting traps.
They may offer to perform ongoing maintenance for an additional fee as necessary to keep your home or business pest-free. Ongoing maintenance can be a great solution to ensure those unwanted visitors don’t come back.
