Is it safe for you to be servicing my property?
While we continue to monitor the CISA, CDC and our state government regulations, currently exterminators are listed as an essential service under the CISA guidelines. Our team is using proper PPE when entering your property to ensure the safety of our customers and all our employees as it pertains to COVID-19. We are continually putting new measures in place as government officials update the public to keep everyone, including our customers, safe. Outside only service is an option to reduce the footprint of individuals inside the property when requested.
How do I know that you will not infect me with the virus?
Our 1st priority is the protection of our employees and customers. We are implementing policies and practices as the situation continues. We have trained staff on proper use of PPE, given out hand sanitizer to each employee and limited the technicians contact with other staff by eliminating weekly staff meetings. We have limited our office hours for technicians to 2 hours a day so that technicians can get chemical needed and turn in paperwork but also reduce contact with other staff members still working in the office.
Why are you working when we are supposed to be practicing “social distancing”?
While we are still an essential service, we have taken steps to “social distance” from our customers while also providing necessary services. We are not currently requiring you to digitally sign for service on our technicians phones, we are offering outside only service, if preferred, and we have online billing options to prevent customers from coming into contact with a technician. We have continued service do to the public health issues pest and rodents cause.
Why do I need service at this time? Can it wait?
Due to so many people “social distancing” we have seen a large number of people staying home. Staying home has then lead to people outside a lot. Spring is the prime time for insects and here is some information on a few key insects/rodents to focus on as why treatment is necessary:
- Mosquitoes: mosquitoes are LOVING the fact that we are all outside trying to escape the house for a walk and taking this opportunity to feed on us. Mosquitoes transmit many diseases such as the most recent, Zika.
- Rodents: rodents will continue to gnaw and find a way into a structure year round. Rodents carry many disease such Hantavirus and can produce litters of babies very quickly.
- German Cockroach: german cockroaches multiple very quickly and can lay approx 40 eggs at a time. They feed in kitchen areas so with so many people at home during this time, a clean kitchen is keep to prevent these invaders.
- Termites: termites feed 365 days a year 24 hours a day. This is not a service you want to skip at this time due to the amount of damage they can cause in a very short period of time.
What type of service are you going to do?
If interior service is not preferred at this time, outside service is still strongly recommended due to the above pest issues.
