Frequently Asked QuestionsCommon Questions We Get about Pest Control
How do I know if I need your services?
Typically speaking, you need EcoCare Pest Management when you have a pest infestation. That could be all kinds of insects or wildlife, but no worries because we handle them all! Take a look at our Pests We Manage page for a full list of insects and animals we can help you with.
If you’re not sure you have an infestation, it might still be a good idea to call us. We can assess the situation and propose a few options for elimination or management. Just remember—the longer you wait to deal with an infestation, the greater the chance the pest will do damage.
What type of pests do you manage?
We handle more than 65 different types of insects and wildlife! That’s pretty much all the native pests in the Central Maryland region (though we can also treat for invasive pests as well). Check out our Pests We Manage page for a full list of insects and animals we can help you with.
What do I do before and after a visit?
There are a number of things you can do to help us (and yourself) prior to a visit from EcoCare. First, be sure to save any specimens of insects and other signs (damage, droppings) to help us with identification. You can also send us pictures of the insects. If termites are discovered, do not apply any material yourself, as it could interfere with a professional treatment. Preparation for treatment varies depending on the pest problem and we can discuss all of your options.
After the visit, be sure to follow our technicians’ instructions carefully to prevent any further spread of the infestation.
