Why Does PCI's Pest Control Service Focus On The Outside Of My Home?

Las Vegas = Bug's Paradise. Outside your home is where bugs live and breed. Our service is designed to stop activity where it originates. By getting to the bugs on the outside of your home we can often prevent them from ever getting inside. This is also more convenient for you since you aren't required to be home during the time of service. If bugs somehow return, so does PCI at no additional charge; Guaranteed!

How Can I Tell The Difference Between A Flying Ant And A Termite?

There are 3 easy ways to tell flying ants and termites apart:

Wing size

Termite wings are all equal in length and extend well past the abdomen. Ants have wings which are unequal in length and generally end at the tip of the abdomen.

Antennae shape

Antennae on termites are straight and bead-like, but on ants they are elbowed.

Waist size

Ants have a pinched waist, but termites have no constriction in the body and are more streamlined.

Why Are Baits Often More Effective Than Sprays?

Spray products break down fairly quickly in most cases, and must be contacted by the target insect in order to be effective. However, baits work on both the bugs you see and the bugs you don't see. Ants, for example, will bring the bait back to their nest and spread it throughout the colony. This leads to a more effective and efficient pest control system with results you can really see.

How Long After The Initial Treatment Does It Take To See Results?

Time of results will vary with the target insect and the pest management strategy employed, but for the most part results are rapid and long lasting. Your ongoing service agreement will ensure that pests are not only controlled, but prevented and kept out of your home. If bugs do somehow return, so does PCI at no additional charge; Guaranteed!

Why Are Some Types Of Ants Such Problematic Pests?

Some types of ants are very problematic, but with the proper service type control can be attained. For example, Some ants are miners of the soil. They tunnel under slabs and enter homes through cracks in the slab and various other penetration points. They also have multiple queen colonies which allow for rapid and constant reproduction. Even though these ants are challenging, PCI has a service designed to manage and control them. Our program utilizes various products and methods to draw activity away from the home.

Why Should I Continue Being On A PCI Program When I No Longer Seem To Have Pests?

We like to think of it like driving a car. If you don't keep up the routine maintenance then the car will breakdown and eventually you will have problems. Pest activity is exactly the same way. Our programs are designed to give your home routine maintenance to manage your pest issues and to prevent problems before they happen. Our warm climate here in Southern Nevada keeps pests active all year round. So when you think your pest problems are gone, it is only because of the routine pest "maintenance" performed by PCI-Pest Control Inc. Without that maintenance, your pest problems would come back.
