What You'll Get
Early exterminators experimented with judicial pest-control solutions, such as serving roaches with tiny eviction notices and suing silverfish on The People's Court. Declare martial law on household pests with today's Groupon: for $79, you get one pest-control treatment and termite inspection from Terminix (a $189 value). Today's Groupon does not include treatment for termites, bed bugs, carpenter ants, or rodents.
Terminix's determined exterminators free homes from the tyranny of creepy crawlies with an arsenal of treatment plans and a confidence-bolstering guarantee. Bug battling begins with a detailed inspection that sleuths out sources of infestation and signs of pests, spotting termites as they scurry around cupboards and eat copies of the The Giving Tree in home libraries. After thoroughly scouring the property for troublesome areas, the inspector schedules a follow-up visit by a technician, who addresses the specific concerns noted by his or her predecessor.
The technician performs a one-time pest-control service that includes dusting the cracks and crevices of the home's exterior and clearing eaves of spider webs, wasp nests, and poorly thrown footballs. A power or pump sprayer then wards away many-eyed intruders from the building's foundation with bug deterrent, and aerosol treatments clear out plumbing voids in the home's interior. Clients can substitute the one-time pest-control treatment for an interior flea treatment, which does not include yard treatment.

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.
