Perimeter FAQ

By treating the exterior of your home, pests can be stopped in their tracks before they ever get inside and invade your family's living space.

The perimeter pest treatment that our company uses stops pests in just five minutes. It's difficult to give an exact length of time on how long a treatment will last because it often depends on your specific pest problem and geography. Renewal applications may be needed depending on the size of your problem, your climate and other factors.

One of the best things about perimeter pest control is how easy it is on you. Unlike an indoor treatment where you are required to cover and move certain items, there is little preparation on your part prior to the treatment. Simply close the windows, and pick up any items lying next to your house. Another plus: Since the exterior of your home is being treated, you don't have to be home for the technician to apply the treatment.
