Our customers are considered family. Your family’s health is our number one concern which is why we select and apply products responsibly by well-trained solutions specialists to avoid harm to the people and pets in your household. All of our products are registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA.)

Here at Fort Myers Pest Control, we’ll do what it takes to keep pests out of your home and to do it in a way that is healthy for you, your family, and the environment. Every member of our staff follows all city, state, and government guidelines when treating homes and yards to minimize the impact on the environment. All products used are reduced-risk and professionally applied by our trained solutions specialists to ensure the health of your household and neighborhood.

We believe in providing realistic expectations about results and stand behind the promises we make. If a pest issue isn’t fully resolved by the recommended treatment, we are happy to return for further treatment until the customer is completely satisfied. If resurgence occurs due to factors out of our control or new pest problems arise, we will provide you with a new estimate free of charge. With our Household Pest Management program, we recommend ongoing treatment including monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly Perimeter Pest Management. Those receiving this proactive pest management service can call at any time they detect pests for additional treatments as part of our Quality Service Guarantee.

The results of your pest control treatment depend on the severity of your infestation. Most times, you will experience a difference after the first pest control treatment, but those with a severe infestation may require multiple treatments before pest activity is eliminated. Your Pest Control Solutions Specialist will provide you with realistic expectations regarding results. If you continue to see pests after treatment has been completed, please contact us. Your satisfaction is our first priority.

In specific pest management cases, we may recommend you leave your home for a short period of time, but most of our Household Pest Management treatments can be performed while your family is in the home. We use EPA-registered products and responsible application techniques to ensure the safety of those in your household.

Most interior applications can be performed in less than one hour. However, every situation requires different methods and products, with environmental conditions such as moisture and sanitation affecting the length of treatment. Your service technician will communicate the expected length of service with you prior to the start of treatment.

Even the most spotless home can fall victim to pests. Southwest Florida’s temperate climate provides the perfect conditions for year-round pest activity. Most pests need nothing more than a moist, dark place to hide or a food source that is easily accessible. A proactive pest management program including regularly scheduled service is the only way to ensure that bugs stay out of your home.

We provide multiple payment options including cash, check or credit card. You can pay at the time of service; you can prepay, or we can send you a bill.

All of our pest control treatments and programs are designed to withstand all weather conditions. There is no need to worry about rain affecting the result of your service.

If you are not seeing pests it is a sign your maintenance program is working. To maintain these positive results, we highly encourage you to continue to request routine maintenance as previously scheduled.

At a minimum, we recommend lawn service every other month. Additional specialty services can be made as needed as well as increased service during months when outdoor pests are more active.

Insect and pest-borne illnesses remain one of the largest global threats to public health including Zika, Dengue Fever, Chikungunya, and Malaria. We have a number of preventative services, including Mosquito control, that can assist to protect your family.
