Q. Inconvenience - Do I have to leave the house? Will there be an odor?
A. No, it's not necessary to leave your house. And most of our products have little to no odor. All of our products are registered with the EPA and are safe for people and pets.

Q. My house is clean. Where are the bugs coming from?
A. Bugs like the same thing people like - food, water and shelter. Bugs can be carried in with anything, particularly items from the grocery store. Or they can sneak in through doorways, attics, eaves and windows.

Q. Are the products you use safe and environmentally friendly?
A. All of our products at The Bug Man are registered with the State of Florida and the EPA. Our many years of experience in pest control have taught us to use the most environmentally friendly products available.

Q. When will I see results?
A. In most cases you will begin to see immediate results. However, some pests are harder to control than others. But we do guarantee that you'll see results.

Q. How much will it cost?
A. Our low-overhead family-run business has no commissioned salesmen. Our personal service will actually save you money, since each job is customized for your needs. We offer monthly, quarterly and yearly plans, as well as special condo packages.

Q. How long does the treatment last?
A. Depending on the type of treatment that you choose, a treatment will last anywhere from 30 to 365 days.

Q. When should I hire The Bug Man; or should I Do It Myself?
A. In cases of severe problems, or if you are uncomfortable using chemicals, The Bug Man's professional expertise can provide you with safe and effective service. However, if you would prefer to do it yourself, we can show you what to use and how to safely apply it.
