Frequently asked questions

  • What is the pest control process?

    In Fort Lauderdale, FL working with your local Ehrlich Pest Control specialist starts with either contacting us via our website or calling our local office.

    Our specialists will schedule a time to carry out a free property inspection. The specialist will provide you with solution and treatment options based on the results of that inspection, discuss the recommendations and what can be done to prevent future infestations.

    You can then schedule a time for the treatments and any follow-up treatments at that time or at a date of your choosing. The specialists will work with you to find the best time to provide the treatments and offer you assistance in preparing for their visit.

    Start the process by calling us at 800-837-5520 or contact us online to arrange your free inspection.

  • What is the best way to prevent pest infestations?

    The best way to prevent a pest infestation is to make your home as unappealing to pests as you can. Pests need food, shelter and moisture, so preventing them from getting these in your property is a good first step. Maintaining your property so that there are no routes of access is also important. Check out our pest pages for advice on detecting and preventing pests, such as rodents, termites and ants.

    However, knowing what pests might find attractive about your property and where the weak points are can be a challenge. This may require professional help.

    The best way to find out how to stop pests is to contact your Fort Lauderdale Ehrlich office and book a free pest survey. Then one of our pest control specialists can give you professional recommendations.

    Signing up for a pest prevention program will save you money in the long run.

    Check out our Pestfree365 service to keep your home free from over 36 of the most common household pests all year long.

  • How much does pest control cost?

    There are many factors that determine the cost of pest control, which makes it impossible to give a fixed price for treating each pest.

    The price is determined by factors including:

    • Pest type
    • Extent of the infestation
    • Treatments chosen
    • Number of treatments required
    • Optional monitoring and prevention services
    • Size and type of property

    We will do an initial survey and present you with a quote and recommendations for your specific pest problem. We will discuss our recommendations and options with you for you to choose the services you want. See more details on our pest control costs page.

    To request a survey and quote, call us at 800-837-5520 or contact us online.

  • How often should I check my home for termites?

    Termites can cause significant damage in only 3 years, therefore we recommend that you should have an inspection every 2–3 years. However, if you already notice some signs of termite activity in your home, such as damaged timber, mud tubes or flying termites, then you should have a professional inspection immediately.

    Termite activity could have been going on for years before signs become visible. So it is important to identify the species of termite and get an assessment of the extent of the infestation and damage already caused.

    Call us at 800-837-5520 or contact us online to arrange a termite survey.

  • How do I get rid of bed bugs?

    This is one of our most frequently asked questions. The large number of visitors means these pests are frequently brought into hotels, apartments and homes in luggage. For businesses, it is essential to have a monitoring program to detect bed bugs as early as possible.

    Once you have an infestation it is important to thoroughly survey your property to establish the extent as there are many places where bed bugs can hide. Our specialists are highly trained to survey a property and determine the best available treatments.

    There are a number of treatments available to eradicate all the life stages of bed bugs, including non-chemical and chemical treatments.

    Check out our bed bug pages for more advice on detection and treatments to eliminate bedbugs.

    If you need help now, call us at 800-837-5520 to speak to one of our pest control professionals or contact us online.

Bed bug heat treatment

Ehrlich’s Entotherm heat treatment is a chemical-free method of eliminating bed bugs and other pests in whole rooms or for items that can be placed into a heating pod.

The heat treatment kills all lifecycle stages of the insect pests, from egg to adult, with a single treatment. The computer-controlled heat cycle reaches deep into infested materials to kill insects where traditional chemicals would not penetrate.

There is minimal disruption for the customer. The equipment is easy to set up on site, enabling quicker treatment, and the room or items are ready to use again as soon as the heat dissipates and the temperature returns to normal.

Contact us by calling at 800-837-5520 or by submitting an online form to arrange an appointment or find out more about our Entotherm bed bug heat treatment.

Termite control in Fort Lauderdale

The main type of termite on the East Coast of the United States is the subterranean termite. Subterranean termite species build mud tubes on walls, beams and floors to connect their underground nests to your timber and need sources of moisture to survive.

They can live and thrive for years underground near or under your house, hidden until they need a bigger food source. The workers then search further afield, building mud tubes to protect themselves, to find food nearby and when they find the timber in your property will consume it.

Drywood termites are a lesser pest on the East Coast. They feed and nest entirely inside a piece of timber and show few signs of their presence. They can do damage for years before being discovered. If you have found spongy floors, found discarded insect wings, seen the sawdust-like droppings, found that doors no longer close properly or any of the other signs of a termite infestation call your local experts in termite control.

If you think that you have a termite problem, call us to arrange an appointment with one of our termite specialists at 800-837-5520 or contact us by online form now.
