Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How do I know which treatment I need?

The first step in the battle against bugs is a thorough inspection of your home. Our technician will identify any bugs that are an immediate threat, and inspect for any ways they may be entering your home. Bugs crawl through cracks and crevices and are carried into your home in packages and clothes. Other common entry points are windows, doors, garages, porches and eaves. Our Slug-A-Bug professional will point out any problem areas and discuss solutions with you.

How does a Termite Guarantee work?

Slug-A-Bug offers two types of guarantees when it comes to Termite treatments. The first and most often requested is our 5 or 10 year “REPAIR” guarantee. This protects the home owner from a re-infestation and the costs associated with correcting any damage termites have caused if the treatment should fail. Slug-A-Bug guarantees that you will remain termite free for the duration of your policy or Slug-A-Bug will re-treat the affected area and repair the damage caused by a re-infestation up to 1 Million dollars.

The second type is a “RE-TREATMENT” guarantee. A re-treatment guarantee protects the home owner from a re-infestation and the costs of re-treating the structure. Slug-A-Bug guarantees to maintain your home termite free for the duration of your policy or Slug-A-Bug will re-treat your home for free.

Why should I have an ongoing pest control program?

In some cases a one time service can eliminate your immediate pest problem, however there is no long term protection against a re-infestation. Most pest control products are only designed to last 3 months, leaving your home susceptible to pest problems. Choosing an on going pest maintenance program will not only save you money in the long term, it will give you a continuous pest free environment for you, your family, and your pets.

How do I know if I have a termite problem?

Many home owners never see a sign of a termite infestation until it’s too late. Termites can cause the home owner thousands of dollars in repairs. At Slug-A-Bug we can provide you with a complete termite evaluation by one of our highly trained Termite inspectors.

In extreme cases we have employed “DIXIE” our termite detection K-9. Dixie has undergone extensive, expensive training much like the bomb sniffing dogs which protect our ports and airports. K-9 termite detection is effective in 90% of inspections, higher than even human termite detectives.
