How much does your pest control service cost? 2019-06-19T14:52:31-07:00

We base our fees on several factors:
a. If the property is commercial or residential
b. The square footage of the house or building
c. If you want the inside, outside, or both sprayed
d. The pest issues that you are having
e. Frequency of service

To give you an idea the initial service fee for general pest control on an average 2000 sqft house would be $150 to treat the inside and outside of the home and get a good knockdown.  Then the rate for maintaining the outside would run $40 monthly, $60 bi-monthly, or $80 quarterly.
Rodents, pigeons, ticks, fleas, bedbugs and flying insects such as bees are more difficult to treat so pricing will be based accordingly.
Please call Alpha Pest Control Inc. for your personalized estimate – 480-968-0414.

Is a contract required to begin service? 2017-06-04T21:10:23-07:00

A signed contract is not required, however we do provide discounts to those who do sign a contract. Our main goal is to cultivate and maintain a long term relationship with our clients based on service. If you do not wish to sign a contract we do have a general service agreement that is required for liability purposes.

We do schedule our appointments for times that are convenient for all parties. Just give us a call and we can find a time that works best for you. We also call a day or so in advance to remind you of the appointment. We strive to arrive within 15 minutes of all appointments.

What methods of payment do you accept? 2015-04-20T00:42:46-07:00

Cash, check, debit, Visa and Mastercard. You can pay at the time of service. Or, we can safely keep your payment information on file so we can process payment at the time of service.

Are the chemicals used safe for the environment? 2015-04-20T00:50:30-07:00

The chemicals we use are regulated by the EPA and are labeled for use in many locations. We use the recommended dosage for the maintenance of pests in the areas we are treating. That means we leave the least amount of chemicals in and around your home or place of business in order to effectively control the pests.

How are common pests controlled? 2015-04-20T00:49:54-07:00

Pests can be controlled by various methods such as spraying, sealing, and baiting.
Spraying – Some of the most common pests that we spray for are ants, silverfish, cockroaches, crickets, spiders and scorpions.
Sealing – Another alternative is to have the premises sealed. This is an up front cost that will provide another layer of protection for your home, and will allow you to go longer between treatments.
Baiting – For rodents, baiting is usually the most effective method of control. We place bait into self contained units for safety. Then, we strategically place them around the premises for maximum effectiveness.

How often is service required? 2015-04-20T00:49:25-07:00

This is a good question and really depends on your tolerance for pests. If you prefer not to see any pests then we recommend monthly pest control service. Bi-monthly service is sufficient if you don’t mind the occasional pest that will more than likely perish soon after entering your home or business. Quarterly is sufficient if you simply want to control the pests to a manageable level and you don’t mind seeing insects on occasion.

Are the chemicals used safe for pets and people? 2015-04-20T00:48:20-07:00

The chemicals we use are labeled for use in places such as apartment buildings, houses, hospitals, schools, hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, pet kennels, etc. We are proud to say that we have been using these chemicals for years and have never had any issues. Per the label, we do recommend that you allow the spray to dry before allowing re-entry of animals into treated areas.
