Here are some frequently asked questions and answers that may help with some of your questions.
Q. What are the top pest problems in the Coachella Valley?
A. Because of the ever changing weather, our customers in Coachella Valley commonly face infestation problems from termites, ants, spiders, bees, rodents, and cockroaches.
Q. How many services will I need to eliminate pests?
A. Each home, pest, and problem are different, so there is really no exact number of services that will match a general problem. We highly recommend a series of service appointments to ensure that the pests are eliminated and are prevented from re-entering the home. Not only will we perform service in the interior of the home, but the exterior as well. We want to stop bugs in their tracks to ensure the problem does not get any worse.
Q. After the first visit, when will my technician come back?
A. During your first service with us, you and your technician will discuss a service plan to determine when additional service will be required. When you have decided on your service plan with your technician, they will contact you prior to the next service date for reminders and updates.
Q. Why don’t technicians come inside my home on each visit?
A. Pests come from the outside, in. Over 90% of bug problems start on the exterior of your home. By treating this area, we are preventing pests from entering your home or living area.
Q. Will the products you use to treat pest problems be harmful to my home, family, and pets?
A. At Rudy’s, we use environmentally safe products that are low in odor and in chemicals. We use innovative and safe management strategies that do not involve chemicals like bait, traps and other chemical free pesticide solutions.
If you are pregnant or have small children, we recommend that you leave the premises for a minimum of 2-4 hours as a precaution.
Q. I haven’t seen any pests in my home for a while now. Is it ok to skip a service?
A. We can’t stress enough how important it is not to skip appointments or services. Because you don’t see pests in your home, it does not necessarily mean that they are gone. For you, as the homeowner, to take control, you must perform regular maintenance.
