Frequently Asked Questions
How often will Moxie Pest Control provide treatments?
Our year-round general pest control plan includes an initial pest-flushing service followed about 30 days later by your first quarterly visit. After that, regular maintenance visits are every 3 months—one each season.
Each quarterly service begins with a thorough inspection of your property to look for areas of pest activity and potential conducive conditions. We then power spray your home’s foundation to maintain a protective barrier against pests and prevent them from coming indoors. We’ll also granulate your yard, remove spiderwebs and wasp nests, spot-treat specific areas of concern, and perform custom treatments to prevent the pests most likely to be problematic that season. We also treat indoors at no extra cost.
What are the benefits of preventative maintenance services?
The best way to solve a pest problem is to stop one before it starts. Active infestations create more of a burden on those living in the house and are often inconvenient to eliminate for homeowners.
Pests can also damage homes and even spread disease. Year-round preventative maintenance safeguards your home as well as your loved ones.
Can I get treatment in between my quarterly maintenance appointments?
Absolutely! We include free, unlimited warranty services between your regular visits. These services can be used for both the interior and exterior of your home.
What are the most common pests during cold weather months?
Winter in Texas can be unpredictable, changing quickly between warm and cold, so it’s not uncommon to see a sudden uptick in all kinds of pest activity whenever the temperature rises.
Typical pests seen during cold weather include mice, rats, and spiders, but keep in mind that just because you don’t see pests, it doesn’t mean they aren’t there.
A common misconception is that pests die when cold weather hits. Many pests actually go through a process called “overwintering.” During this hibernation and breeding phase, eggs will mature into adults between the cold weather and spring.
Treating for pests in the winter reduces the pest population so you have fewer bugs in the hot summer months.
Can your products be used with pets and children?
Yes! We use pet- and family-friendly products so every member of your household can rest easy—and that includes the furry ones.
