Pest Control FAQs
Q: Will I ever see any bugs after starting service?
After we’ve treated an area, any remaining bugs will exit their hiding places and seek to remove themselves from the area that has been treated for pests. As a result, you might see insect activity immediately following your initial service. The frequency at which you see pests in your home should diminish within 2 weeks as the treatment settles in and any remaining bugs leave the area, leaving you pest free.
It is completely normal and expected to see the occasional bug, as they are a natural part of any environment, but you should no longer suffer from large quantities of insects inside your home. If you start to see infestation-levels of bugs or they are becoming a continuous indoor nuisance, a second treatment might be necessary and we are more than happy to return to your Huntsville home to provide this service.

Q: Do I need to leave the house during/after treatment?
Your comfort and safety is our number one priority. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, we ask that pregnant women and very young children stay out of the service area until after everything has had a chance to dry. Anyone who has underlying conditions, sensitivities, or who might otherwise be vulnerable might also want to check with their doctor about health concerns related to pest control. If you don’t fall into any of these categories, it is perfectly safe to stay at your home throughout and immediately following your pest control service. Regardless of medical concerns, if you would feel more comfortable leaving the premises entirely during treatment, you are more than welcome to do so!
Q: Why is there an abundant amount of spiders this year?
A variety of factors can contribute to the spider populations you encounter in Madison county and the greater Huntsville area from year to year. Usually, weather is a huge contributing factor. The warmer the weather, the more actively insects can reproduce. When there’s an abundance of pests, the spider population increases in direct proportion. Mild winters mean fewer spiders will die off over the course of the season, more importantly, fewer of the spiders’ favorite foods will die off, leaving an abundance of their food supply. You can see why this would be an easy recipe for an abundance of spiders!
There are also elements of your home and property that might be attracting more spiders. If you’ve made changes in your landscaping or if it’s fallen into neglect, you may be inviting more insects to reside there, which in turn attracts spiders. Standing water will also increase your pest and spider population, so it’s good to make sure your landscaping is well taken care of.
Q: What do you use for organic/green treatments?
Safe and environmentally conscious pest control practices are important to us, which is why we use a treatment approved by the National Organics Program and other natural compounds to eliminate pests in your home. We’ll also often utilize essential oils like thyme, rosemary, and peppermint that serve as natural pest repellants for a safer, eco-friendlier solution to your bug problem!
