FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We understand you may have some questions about termite treatments, pest control services or your warranty. You’ll find a list of our most frequently asked questions below. If you have a question you don’t find the answer to please contact our office at 727-323-9595. Our staff will be happy to answer your questions.

Pest Control

A pest control technician will visit your home or business on a quarterly basis to treat the exterior. You may call our office at 727-323-9595 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.

No. We manage the schedule for your quarterly exterior treatments and we will call you the day before to notify you of our impending visit.

After your initial pest control visit we will schedule visits to your home or business once per quarter. Your technician will provide you with a courtesy call the day before the service is conducted. You do not need to be present at the time of service as most of our treatments after the initial service are done on the exterior of your home or business.

If you are seeing live pests or an abundance of dead pests in a particular area, please call our office. Our staff may determine an additional treatment is necessary.

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.).

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.

Yes, it is safe for both children and pets. The products we use on the interior are diluted for everyone’s safety.

If you have any issues with live pests on the interior of your home or office, please call our office to schedule a pest control visit.

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.

Drywood Termites

The drywood termite swarm season is typically determined by the change of climate, humidity and temperature; this season typically begins between April – June. 

If the structure becomes re-infested with LIVE drywood termites during the warranty period, Geiger’s Pest Services will re-fumigate the structure at no additional charge.

Your termite fumigation warranty is limited to re-treatment only.  Coverage does not include repair to damage that may have been caused by termites.

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 pest technicians.

The drywood termite fumigation warranty is a renewable annual warranty. It can be renewed and remain active for 15 years from the initial fumigation year.   

The warranty renewal will increase in cost on the 5th and 10th year.

Contact Geiger’s Pest Services to schedule a free inspection.  A technician will visit your property to evaluate the evidence you are finding and determine if there is an active drywood termite infestation. 

Subterranean Termites

If the structure becomes re-infested with LIVE subterranean termites during the warranty period, Geiger’s Pest Services will re-treat the soil around the structure at no additional charge.  Re-treatment must be determined to be necessary by Geiger’s Pest Services Certified Operator.

Your termite fumigation warranty is limited to re-treatment only.  Coverage does not include repair to damage that may have been caused by termites.

Lifetime! The subterranean termite warranty is a renewable annual warranty. It can be renewed and remain active for the life of the structure as long as the required “Booster” treatment is done every five years from the initial treatment year.   

The warranty renewal will increase in cost every five years and accompany the required “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.

Contact Geiger’s Pest Services to schedule a free inspection.  A technician will visit your property to evaluate the evidence you are finding and determine if there is an active subterranean termite infestation. 

Yes, the warranty is transferable for no additional charge.  The new owner’s information will need to be updated on the account to have the warranty transferred. This can be done by calling Geiger’s Pest Services.
