Our Annual Pest Control Service Program

Our most common service program for controlling pests like ants, spiders, rodents and roaches is also our most effective. We custom design a service program of exterior visits to protect your home on the outside, where almost all household pests come from.

Year-round outside treatments spaced every other month eliminate the need to treat inside unless you see a pest. For you and your family, that means more convenience, less exposure to pesticides and fewer pests making their way into your home in the first place.

We guarantee our service. If you see any pests inside at any time, year round, we will take care of it for free! Our service program covers all types of insect pests inside your home as well as rodents, and stinging insect nests on the outside of the home.

The only exclusions are bed bugs, mosquitoes, termite control and wildlife removal, which are all services that we offer.

OUR OUTSIDE SERVICE PROGRAM
FOR YOUR HOME

All of our programs are designed around a core principle of keeping pests out in the first place. We do not place materials inside the home unless there is a serious problem that requires it.

Our service, which primarily focuses around the outside of the home, will utilize the best material for the job while making sure that its impact is only felt by the pest we are trying to control and no one else.

On each visit to the home you can expect the following:

  • We’ll check in with you to see if you have experienced any problems / sightings since the last service visit.
  • We’ll make a thorough inspection of your home looking for pest harborages or entry points.
  • We’ll make a prescriptive treatment of these areas with the best material to control the pest that has the lowest impact to you or the environment.
  • We’ll inform you of conducive conditions around the home so that you can help prevent problems by addressing these critical areas.

INITIAL SERVICE VISIT - WHAT TO EXPECT

When you contact Blue Chip for the first time, we will give you upfront pricing and options to not only have your problem solved, but to keep those problems away for good. You can even setup your first service and service program completely online! We will then send out one of our highly trained technicians to inspect your home and solve your pest problem when it is convenient for you. Our technician will answer any questions you may have and can also discuss further options with you regarding regular service for your home.

HERE’S WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT
STEP BY STEP

  • Before we enter your house, we will place shoe covers on our feet to protect your home.
  • We will go through your home with you, making a full inspection and listening to you describe what you have seen. After all, you’re there day and night and know your home inside and out.
  • After we have diagnosed the problem, we will discuss with you how we will attack the problem, inside and out.
  • We will treat your home using the latest methods and materials, placing an emphasis on putting materials where pests are either going to come into your home or where they will live once they’ve made their way inside.
  • If your house has a basement, this is where we will spend a fair amount of time. This is the most common area to find pests as they enter, and since most basements are dark and damp, it makes an inviting environment for them to live. We will also do an inspection for rodent activity in this area.
  • Upstairs, we pay special attention to kitchens, baths and the pantry – areas pests will go once they’re inside. Please clean out under your sinks in both the kitchen and bathrooms to allow us access beneath to treat.
  • We also will treat windows, doors and plumbing accesses – common areas where pests enter.
  • In the garage, we will treat the perimeter, around the garage door and in the corners for spiders. We will also inspect for evidence of rodent activity in these areas.
  • Outside the house, we will treat around all accessible windows and doors, under siding, along the foundation, and around any utility entrances.
  • We will then treat 5 feet out from your home with either a truck-mounted sprayer or granular material to create a barrier that pests can’t cross to enter your home.
  • We will also go around and remove any dead insect nests or cob webs that we can reach.
  • When we are done, your home will be left in the same condition it was found in, minus the pests.
  • We will review your service with you, letting you know what we found both inside and out. If there are concerns, we will give you a written report detailing how you can help prevent future pest problems.
  • We will also give you options for service programs to prevent pests from ever bugging you again.
  • After we leave, we will ask for your feedback either on our Web site or through our Report Card surveys. Let us know how we are doing and what could have been done to improve your service experience.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are The Products You Use Safe?

All of the products we use are toxic to insects, but they pose no threat to humans or other mammals. We do, however, realize that people don’t like to be exposed to treatments. That’s why we concentrate most of our applications on the exterior of the home. On the inside, we concentrate heavily on inspecting and treating where the pests are likely to be and not out in the open. We are as concerned about this topic as you are, so we always look for better ways to control pests inside and out.

I Just Had My Outside Service Done, And It Rained The Next Day. Do I Need To Have My House Treated Again?

No. As long as the materials had an opportunity to dry, which takes about 30 minutes, it will stay adhered to the surface it was applied to. While rain, sun and wind will all break down pesticides, they are designed to withstand the elements for up to 90 days. On most days when there is a chance of rain, we will use a granulated material instead of liquid sprays. The granules work in a similar fashion to fertilizers in that they are time released by rain and moisture.

How Frequently Should My Home Be Serviced?

That’s a good question – one that is very dependent on the conditions around your home. Homes surrounded by trees and shrubs, back up to wooded areas, or have a lot of activity that keeps doors open will require more frequent visits. Other homes may require fewer visits to achieve the same results. See our 365 Custom Home Protection program for details about service around the home.

I Found Some Termite Activity In A Fence Post, What Now?

While this does not mean that the house is falling down, it does let you know that termites are active around your home. This is a great time to go after the termite colony, rather than waiting for them to come to you and do damage. The Sentricon™ system for termite control works outside your home to monitor and kill termites outside where they belong.

Do I Need To Leave When You Service?

Only if you want to. We primarily use no- or low-odor materials in and around homes and businesses. If you would feel more comfortable leaving, let us know how we can best accommodate your needs.

I Have Heard That If I Find Ants Around My Home, I Might Have A Termite Problem. Is That Correct?

No. There is no correlation between the two. While both favor similar habitats, such as mulch beds and woodpiles, they are mortal enemies of one another. Finding one does not mean that the other is soon to follow.

My House Is 10 Years Old, Should I Worry About Termites?

Most homes in our area will develop termite activity between the ages of eight and 15 years. While some may start early and others never have problems, most homes in this range will have termites at some point. You may start to see your neighbors having termite treatments done. While this will not send them your way, it will alert you that termites are moving into the neighborhood. It’s at this point that you want to keep your eyes open. Call us for a free guide of what signs to look for in and around your home to determine if termites have moved in.

What Can I Expect On An Exterior Pest Control Visit During The Winter?

During the winter, we concentrate on using residual dusts, baits and granular materials to prepare the house for spring. By treating early in the season, we can prevent the pests that come alive at the first hint of spring. With winter being less severe than years past, many species are able to not only survive, but thrive year round.

I Saw A Mouse In My Garage, Is My House Infested?

Not necessarily. You may have just a single mouse in the house. The only way to really know is to have a professional inspect for signs of infestation or to purchase glue traps, and monitor the activity yourself. Many times a single mouse will enter a home for food or shelter if the door is left open. If you see more than one, you will need some other form of control for them.

I Haven’t Seen Any Problems Since You Began Regular Service, Do I Really Need To Keep A Regular Program?

The reason you haven’t seen any problems is because of our regular service. By treating your home on a regular basis, we maintain a barrier that keeps pests out, so you don’t see them. If service was stopped, we’re sure that pest activity would increase.

Every Fall And Spring, I Get An Influx Of Ladybugs. What Can I Do?

These pests are simply trying to stay warm inside your walls and home over the winter. Control of these pests starts in the fall. You should seal as many cracks and crevices as possible around windows and doors and under siding. A residual treatment around these areas also will help kill any that find a way in.

Our Dog Found A Dead Mouse In The Yard. Should I Be Concerned With Secondary Poisoning Because The Mouse Might Have Eaten From The Rodent Bait Stations?

No. The materials we sell and use to service around your home will not accumulate to dangerous levels inside a mouse or other rodent. In general, these pests require only a single feeding for control, which would not be enough to harm larger pets.

Why Do I See More Mice In The Fall And Winter?

Mice enter homes in the fall and winter months because their natural foods (insects, plants, and seeds) are in short supply. They are also attracted to the heat that escapes from buildings. Things like long grass, overgrown bushes, and piles of leaves provide an excellent home for mice to live in right next to your house. From there it is only a short trip inside for food. At times they may get inside and find that they would rather live there instead. Exterior baiting is the best long term solution to preventing mice from entering the home by giving them a lethal food supply where they live – outside.

Do Ants Or Termites Have Wings?

Actually both do. The winged versions of these pests are the reproductives that the colony sends out to try and start new colonies. It is important however to know if it is an ant or a termite. Winged ants are harmless and their presence means that there is a nest, usually outside the home, and they were attracted to a light inside. Termites if found inside, are an indication that a termite colony is probably feeding on your home and a treatment is needed.

Why Do I Need To Have My Home Serviced In The Winter? Don’t All The Bugs Die When It Gets Cold?

The reason we treat your home year round is because insects actually don’t die off over the winter. They go deeper down into the soil or like ladybugs they will come inside to stay warm. Insects are smart enough to recognize the oncoming cold and build up supplies of food for the winter. We actually use different types of materials for the winter visits that penetrate deeper into the soil to target these clever pests. These materials are designed to hold up better in cold weather and are the best protection against pests from entering at the first warm spell.

I Have A Brick Home, Why Do I Need To Worry About Termites?

Unless your home has steel studs and floor joists, you need to worry. Behind your walls are wood studs, beneath you feet are wood floors, and floor joists, around your windows and doors are wood frames. You are surrounded by wood even if it is not entirely visible. Termites can enter a home through a crack 1/64th of an inch, which is about how big the cracks are between bricks on your home. Once inside they will work discreetly to consume the wood and take it back to the nest. Our monitoring program will help prevent this unwarranted attack, by catching them before they find your home in the first place.

Mosquitoes Are All Over Me And My Family As Soon As We Go Outside. What Can Be Done For Them?

We have a new service program specifically targeted toward mosquitoes. This treatment program uses a fine mist application of microencapsulated materials to treat all of the foliage around your house and yard. This targeted application kills mosquitoes where they rest and hide during the day.
