Why GGA? FAQs

GGA is known for our high level of reliable service built on extensive experience in the industry. Our team, including our office staff, maintains a professional appearance and undergoes a thorough background check.

Pests are attracted to homes that provide their basic needs: food, water, and shelter. Removing their access to these resources with professional pest management helps control and prevent infestations.

We prioritize exterior treatments because most indoor pests originate from outside. By managing these pests where they live and breed, we can reduce the likelihood of them entering your home, minimizing the need for interior pesticide use.

Professional pest control offers a safer and more effective approach than DIY methods. Our technicians at GGA are trained and certified, equipped with the right tools and knowledge to safely apply pesticides while avoiding overuse and environmental harm.

Regular pest control ensures a pest-free environment for your family. Our services are guaranteed, and if pests return between visits, we'll come back at no extra charge until the issue is resolved.

GGA Pest Management, TX ants.
Ants FAQs

The cost of ant extermination varies depending on the size of the infestation, the type of ants, and the treatment needed. Factors such as the location and size of the infestation also affect the price. Contact us for a detailed quote tailored to your specific situation.

Signs of an ant infestation include seeing trails of ants moving to and from food sources, finding nests or ant hills around your property, and noticing ants in your food or on surfaces in your home. You might also see discarded wings from swarming ants.

To permanently get rid of ants, you must eliminate the entire colony, including the queen. This usually involves professional treatment that targets the ant colony and their nest. Professional exterminators can identify the species and apply treatments deep into the colony.

Prevent ant infestations by keeping your home clean and free of crumbs, sealing cracks and entry points, fixing leaks and moisture issues, storing food in airtight containers, and trimming vegetation that touches your house to reduce access points for ants.

While DIY methods can help manage minor issues, professional ant control is recommended for thorough and lasting results. Experts can identify the specific ant species and use targeted treatments to eliminate the infestation.

GGA Pest Management, TX mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes FAQs

The cost of mosquito extermination varies depending on your property's size and the infestation's severity. Contact us for a detailed quote tailored to your specific needs.

Signs of a mosquito infestation include seeing swarms of mosquitoes, especially at dusk or dawn, frequent mosquito bites, and hearing buzzing sounds. You might also find larvae in standing water around your property.

Due to their breeding habits, completely eliminating mosquitoes is challenging without professional help. Regular treatment and preventative measures can significantly reduce their population and deter new infestations.

Eliminate standing water where mosquitoes breed, such as in plant saucers, birdbaths, and clogged gutters. Maintain your yard by trimming vegetation and using appropriate mosquito repellents. Professional treatments can also keep mosquito populations under control.

While you can take steps to prevent mosquitoes, like removing standing water and using bug repellents, professional mosquito control is often necessary for complete and effective management, especially for large or persistent infestations.

GGA Pest Management, TX rodent.
Rodents FAQs

The cost of rodent extermination can vary depending on the severity of the infestation, the size of your property, and the methods needed to address the issue. At GGA, we provide a free initial assessment to help you understand the costs involved.

Signs of a rodent infestation include visible droppings, sounds of scurrying or gnawing, bite marks on food packaging or structures, and nests in hidden areas. If you notice any of these signs, you likely have a rodent problem.

Permanently removing rodents involves a combination of prevention techniques, sanitation, and population control. A professional pest control service can provide a plan tailored to your situation for lasting results.

Prevention is key to keeping rodents out. Seal any cracks and openings in your home’s exterior, maintain clean and clutter-free storage areas, dispose of garbage regularly in sealed bins, and keep food in sealed containers. Regular home inspections and maintenance can also help spot potential entry points before they become an issue.

While many DIY rodent control methods exist, including traps and over-the-counter baits, these are often temporary solutions for small problems. For larger infestations or recurrent issues, it’s best to seek professional pest control services.

GGA Pest Management, TX spiders.
Spiders FAQs

The cost of spider extermination can vary, depending on the scope of the infestation and your home's size. For a precise quote, it's best to have our team conduct a personalized evaluation.

If you're noticing more spiders than usual, encountering webs in various corners, or seeing other insects—which spiders prey on—you likely have an infestation. Consistent sightings are a key indicator of a spider problem.

Having a spider-free home requires a combination of expert pest control treatments and preventive actions, such as sealing up entry points and minimizing clutter. Ongoing maintenance and regular treatments lay the ground for lasting results.

To prevent spiders from entering your home, seal any cracks and gaps, maintain a tidy environment, and manage the vegetation around your property. You should also minimize other pest infestations, as spiders are attracted to prey such as flies, ants, and mosquitoes.

DIY spider control methods might offer a temporary fix but often fall short of fully resolving an infestation. Professionals have access to more effective tools and techniques that can safely eliminate spiders from your home. For comprehensive, long-lasting results, hiring a professional is better than DIY spider control.

GGA Pest Management, TX termites.
Termites FAQs

You might have a termite problem if you notice discarded wings, mud tubes, hollow-sounding wood, or visible damage to wood structures. Termites shed their wings after swarming, and the small tunnels they build to travel between their nest and food sources are called mud tubes. Tapping on wood structures and hearing a hollow sound can indicate that termites have eaten the inside.

The cost of termite extermination can vary based on the size of your home and the extent of the infestation. It's best to contact us for a detailed quote. We’ll assess your situation and provide an estimate.

To get rid of termites for good, you need professional treatment like the Sentricon system used by our team at GGA. Regular inspections and ongoing prevention measures are also important to keep your home termite-free.

Prevent termites by controlling moisture, using termite barriers, scheduling regular inspections, and maintaining wood structures. Fixing leaks and using dehumidifiers in damp areas help control moisture. Installing barriers around your home’s foundation can also help. Regular professional inspections can catch early signs of termites, and keeping wood surfaces dry and well-maintained can prevent infestations.

While DIY methods are available, they often don't completely eliminate termites. Professional termite control services are more effective and provide long-lasting results. For the best results, leave it to the experts.

Cockroach FAQs

Signs of a cockroach infestation include seeing live or dead cockroaches, finding their droppings (which resemble coffee grounds or black pepper), noticing a musty odor, and discovering egg cases (oothecae) in hidden areas such as under sinks, behind appliances, and in pantries.

The time it takes to eradicate cockroaches can vary based on the extent of the infestation, the type of cockroaches, and the methods used. Generally, it can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Consistent treatment and follow-up are crucial for effective elimination.

GGA Pest Management, TX wasps.
Wasps FAQs
The cost of wasp extermination can vary depending on the size and location of the nest, the number of wasps, and the accessibility of the infestation. Generally, prices range from $100 to $400. It’s best to get a personalized quote from a professional exterminator as they can assess the details of your situation.
Signs of a wasp infestation include seeing an unusually high number of wasps in your area, finding a nest on your property, or observing wasps entering and exiting a particular spot. Loud buzzing sounds within walls or attics can also indicate a hidden nest.

Permanently eliminating wasps is difficult, but you can reduce their numbers and prevent future infestations with effective strategies.

The first step is nest removal. Due to the risk involved, professional pest control services are recommended to ensure safe and complete removal. After removing the nest, apply insecticides or residual treatments and employ other preventative measures that deter wasps from returning. Experts like GGA Pest Management will often have access to more effective products than the general public.

To prevent wasp infestations, it’s important to manage potential attractants and access points.

  • Ensure garbage cans and compost bins are tightly sealed to deny wasps access to food.
  • Seal any cracks and crevices on the exterior of buildings to block entry points.
  • Keep vegetation well-trimmed to eliminate possible nesting sites.
  • Regularly monitor for signs of wasp activity to detect and address new infestations before they become major problems.
While DIY wasp control is possible, it carries risks such as stings and improper handling of insecticides. If you choose to attempt DIY methods, ensure you wear protective clothing and use appropriate wasp sprays. However, for larger or more dangerous infestations, it is highly recommended to seek professional assistance to ensure safety and effectiveness.
