What You'll Get
Insects are regarded as the worst roommates in the animal kingdom, sloppier than fastidious amphibians and more likely to host enormous drunken blowouts than teetotal mollusks. Banish meddlesome cohabitants with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a pest-control treatment including termite inspection from Terminix (a $189 value).
Terminix rids residences of encroaching insects and home-wrecking termites with a full spectrum of extermination strategies, bolstered by a money-back guarantee. A certified inspector begins by scouring the home for telltale signs of termites and other uninvited invertebrates, thoroughly investigating hidden nooks, hard-to-reach crannies, and bathtub crannogs. After carefully charting trouble spots and up-and-coming arthropod hangouts, the inspector will schedule a follow-up visit by a technician. In addition to addressing any specific concerns discovered in the inspection, the technician sweeps eaves, pipes, corners, and crevices to expunge spider webs, bugs’ nests, and uninvited college roommates. A safe and reliable spray treatment administered to the exterior foundation guards your domicile against the return of vanquished vermin.
The treatment covered by today’s deal targets general creepy-crawlies such as ants, spiders, and crickets, and does not apply to specialized infestations by rodents, bed bugs, or carpenter ants, or to nests in locations above eight feet off the ground. Insect evictors may choose to substitute their pest-control treatment for an in-house flea removal instead (yard treatment not included).

Terminix lives out its motto, “power over pests,” by providing extermination services for termites, bedbugs, and other common household insects, backed by a comprehensive money-back guarantee. In an initial inspection appointment, certified inspectors scan quarters for warning signs, such as termite-style wood damage and empty black-widow terrariums. Terminix’s primary strategy, viable for most pests, pivots on a liquid defense system applied to the soil that surrounds homes. The liquid coats passing arthropods in pesticide, which they then transmit to their peers. Baited traps supplement the liquid system, luring in bugs from strategic positions near food-filled locales, such as refrigerators and beanbag chairs stuffed with baked beans. Bug banishers can also spray bedbug-infested rooms with Rapid Freeze carbon dioxide, which ices both the bugs and their eggs.
