We have been using SWAT Pest Control for about 8 years now. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, prompt and professional. We wouldn't think of calling anyone else!

The following Frequently Asked Questions have been provided to address a few of our business and response policies as well as a guideline to our treatment plans for various pests.
A. We respond to ALL inquiries as soon as possible:
We return all calls and emails. Depending on the volume of business we may be delayed at times but do return them. Please follow up with a call if you need service sooner. With today's technology we track all calls and emails received and returned.
A liquid treatment is guaranteed for one year. We offer an annual renewal for 10 consecutive years. We prefer a liquid treatment for active indoor infestations to get a quick result. We do use the Advance Termite Bait System as a monitoring program. We recommend a baiting program for homes that have been treated by another company years ago or a piece of mind for prevention of termites.
A. Yes. When mixed and applied properly, they are very safe and have an extremely low toxicity to mammals. It’s only strong enough to kill insects.
A. Yes. Please keep all kids and pets away from technicians while applying and keep off until dry, approximately 20 minutes.
A. Yes. If you feel more comfortable, you may want to be out during our application. As a “feel good” policy, we suggest all newborns under six months of age, are out during application and until dry.
A. Due to modern technology, most of our products are odorless. You may detect a slight odor depending upon which materials are needed for specific jobs.
A. If we have to “fog” or “bomb” the house, you will have to vacate for an hour or so and then ventilate upon your arrival.
A. Yes. We provide a 45 day warranty on most one time treatments for short term relief. A maintenance program may be needed for permanent control.
A. Unfortunately, not immediately. We advise our customers of a 10 day grace period to let the chemicals do their magic.
A. Yes, but we ask you wait at least 10 days after the treatment. If the problem persists, we may need to increase service visits.
A. No. We can kill them, but not disintegrate them too. Also, most pests don’t die instantly. After an insect comes in contact with the pesticide, it absorbs the chemical into their system slowly. That is what keeps the chemicals safe around people and pets.
A. Depending on the formulation needed for control, most sprays last about 90 days before they break down to nothing. Heat, ultra-violet light and moisture eventually neutralize all products.
A. You will receive a phone call or email depending on your preferred contact method. You can contact our office if you have any questions.
A: If we call or email twice (depending on your indicated preference) and we do not hear from you, we will email/mail you a post card stating the next time we are in your area we will treat the outside of your home to help your home pest free without skipping the maintenance cycle.
