Before exterminators, homeowners resorted to less effective pest-control methods, such as holding a mosquito by the throat and repeatedly screaming, "Who are you working for?" Take control with this Groupon.
$69 for a Pest-Control Treatment and Free Inspection ($199 Value)
After searching for evidence of termites and pests during a thorough inspection, experts get to work ousting up to 27 common household insects including spiders and silverfish. The pest-control treatment does not cover termites, bedbugs, or carpenter ants. This Groupon is valid for residential buildings in the East Bay, Pen, and North Bay areas.
Common household pests such as ants, termites, cockroaches, flies, and spiders can carry up to 33 types of bacteria, including some that cause illness in humans. They can eat away at a building's framework, as well as homeowners' ability to confidently sleep with their mouths open. This is why Terminix technicians aren't satisfied with simply eliminating current pest problems—they strive to also prevent future infestations, and they guarantee their ability to do so.
Terminix team members know all the obscure places where pests like to hide: in water-heater closets, fireplaces, the centers of donuts, plumbing penetrations, and the weep holes in wood-veneer walls. Their response to an infestation varies depending on the home's unique situation, but services may include sweeping away spider webs and wasps nests from the eaves of the home, setting up traps, dusting and spraying interior or exterior crevices that are prone to pests, and spraying around the home's foundation.
