Well, we must know how long we should be exterminating our house, right? The duration of each chemical used depends on the pest itself. Let’s proceed below!


Inspecting for changes or signals of pest activity, checking traps, and putting preventative measures in place to limit insect populations are all part of your neighborhood exterminator’s regular visits. Even if pests aren’t apparent, monthly inspections allow pest control professionals to evaluate the infrastructure of your building or business and hunt for new insect-related dangers. Regular inspections also aid in the reduction of pest management costs.


How often do we need an extermination?

In order to properly prevent common pests or when moving into a new home or apartment, we propose frequent pest control treatments on a quarterly or even bi-monthly basis for apartments and residences. Monthly treatments over the course of 3 to 6 months are recommended for more significant infestations. However, the recommended frequency is affected by your location, building size, weather conditions, time of year, and pest species.

How long does it take?

A professional pest control treatment for spiders, moths, roaches, silverfish, pill bugs (roly-polies), and other pests lasts a few months and should be repeated regularly. Depending on the severity of the ant infestation, monthly visits are required for three to six months. 

For example, when one of our experienced exterminators treats your ant infestation, it may take more than one visit to kill the colony. Improvement should be seen quickly, but complete elimination can take anywhere from several weeks to a couple of months.

The frequency of pest control treatments for your home or company is determined by several factors, including your location, the size of your home or business, the weather (such as rain), and the type of pest (as i’ve mentioned, as not all insects need the same treatment).
