- $39 for interior and exterior pest-control treatment (a $190 value)
To prevent pests from entering homes, a pest-control technician treats baseboards and corners throughout the house and uses an injection system to flush out nesting pests. An initial dusting of the attic minimizes scorpions, spiders, silverfish, and roaches. The technician also treats garages, the bases of windows, and entryways to prevent common pests from entering.
During exterior treatments, a pest technician sprays 3 feet up houses’ foundations and 6–12 feet out, creating a barrier around the home that kills such unwanted guests as roaches, earwigs, and ants. The tech also combs through the yard in search of ants and spiders that may have traveled off from their home bases and into the grass, bushes, or trees. Window bases, eaves, and expansion joints receive proper treatment as well, preventing bugs from reentering and reproducing.
