  • Pest Control

    • How does my quarterly pest control service work?
      A pest control technician will visit your home or business on a quarterly basis to treat the exterior. You may call our office at (727) 761-9385 to report any pest issues in between any scheduled, quarterly visit. If you see dead pests inside this may be normal and an indication that the barrier treatment is working. If you see an excessive amount of dead pests, please notify us.
    • What do I do if I see dead pests?
      Good news! This is a sign that the treatment is working as designed. The exterior barrier is designed to be effective when the pests come in contact with the products. This may be when bugs are attempting to enter your home or office. If you are seeing only a few dead bugs over the span of a few weeks, that is normal. However, a substantial amount indicates a possible interior infestation that we should be made aware of. Please call our office for assistance.
  • Subterranean Termites

    • What does our subterranean termite limited warranty cover?
      Geiger’s Pest Services will re-treat the structure and the surrounding perimeter if LIVE Subterranean Termites are found, at no additional charge.

    • Do I need to be present for my treatments?
      During our quarterly treatments, we treat the outside only, providing an exterior barrier to your home or business. You do not need to be present. You may request an interior treatment; and at which point, someone over the age of 18 will need to be present to let our pest control expert inside.
  • Drywood Termites

    • How long can the warranty remain active?
      The drywood termite fumigation warranty is a renewable annual warranty. It can be renewed annually for a fee and remain active for 15 years from the initial fumigation year.  Every five years there is an increase in the warranty fee.
  • Subterranean Termites

  • Pest Control

    • Will I be billed for any additional visits if I pay for annual, quarterly pest control?
      Our regular, scheduled pest control is designed to occur once a quarter. If you notice live pests between treatments, please call the office to notify us of the problem. If an additional treatment is necessary, there will be no additional charge unless the issue is outside of the annual contract agreement (i.e, bed bugs, fleas, termites, etc.).
  • Drywood Termites

    • What does re-treatment mean?
      Re-treatment can be either local spot treatment to target a specific area that has become infested or tent fumigation.  The option on which treatment method is used is determined by Geiger’s Pest Services Certified Operator.
  • Subterranean Termites

    • What is a booster treatment?
      Every 5 years after the initial treatment, the chemical needs to be re-applied to the soil.  A Geiger’s Pest Services pest technician will re-treat the soil around the entire structure.  This is an additional cost above the cost to renew the annual warranty.
