The Best Local Pest Control in Virginia Beach
Q. So, who is “Talent Termite?”
A. We’re your local pest control professionals whose team members are experts in their fields, their integrity above reproach, and who are driven to exceed customer’s expectations. We live by the motto of “Accurate, Honest, Fast” to make sure you are satisfied when we “get rid of anything not paying rent,” as we say!
Q. What are your pest control specialties?
A. Here’s the list of how we most often serve the Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads communities:
Termite and Moisture Inspections: Talent Termite serves agents and prospective homebuyers in the homebuying process by inspecting a property for termites and moisture before the sale of the home. Since a clear termite/moisture report (TMR) is required for most real estate transactions, we perform inspections on home foundations (crawlspace and slab) to inform the buyer of any existing or potential issues and guarantee a smooth closing.
General Pest Control: We’re your experts for one-time and quarterly pest control in Hampton Roads, VA. Keep your home safe and pest-free with our professional pest control services!
Sentricon: We are licensed Certified Sentricon Specialists (CSS), which only 4% of pest control providers are! Sentricon is the leader in termite baiting solutions and has the data to back it up. Their formula is proven to eliminate the colony and keep termites away from your most valuable asset - your home!
Mosquito Protection: Take back your lawn! Let us treat your lawn for mosquitoes and you'll wonder how you ever lived without this service. Enjoy your summers outdoors again!
Q. What makes Talent Termite the best in Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads?
A. We stand out from other contractors because we use the minimum amount of chemicals necessary to get the job done right. Protecting your family means treating your house as if it were ours.
We apply pest control chemicals in a responsible and eco-friendly manner, investing in new technologies that target pests effectively and precisely to give you peace of mind.
Q. How often should pest control be done?
A. While there’s no one-size-fits-all answer, our experts have some tips. In general, our treatments have a residual efficacy of roughly 90 days. This period can depend a lot on weather (did the rain wash away the chemicals?), how clean the inside of the house is, etc.
But in general, we recommend quarterly pest control treatments. That said, all of Talent Terminte’s treatments come with unlimited call-backs. So, if there’s an increase in activity between regularly scheduled appointments, give us a call and we’ll come out, re-treat, and figure out what’s going on.
Q. Why should someone buying
a home hire the Talent Termite team?
A. Determining whether there is evidence of termites, termite damage, and/or moisture control on a property is essential to making an informed purchase for either the first-time homebuyer or the seasoned investor.
Most people aren’t trained to look for the signs of a termite infestation. They are often found in crawl spaces, which aren’t a common part of a house tour. Hiring professionals like Talent Termite will give you photos, accurate records, and expert recommendations of appropriate treatments to give you peace of mind before you purchase.
Additionally, most lenders require a termite and moisture inspection as part of the underwriting process.
Q. What kind of response time can customers expect when they contact you?
A. Pest problems need to be solved yesterday! No one likes to wait when they have an issue. Our pledge is to work tirelessly to get you the fastest service possible.
Q. You’re based in Virginia Beach and serve the greater Hampton Roads area. Why do you love working here?
A. Virginia Beach has the offerings of a large city, with the small-town feel. Everyone is connected by only a few degrees of separation. This is why we work hard to maintain a positive reputation with all our customers - we wouldn’t be in business long without it! We love that accountability that comes from serving friends and neighbors.
Q. Is Talent Termite properly licensed and insured?
A. Absolutely! We are licensed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services as well as the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation as Class C contractors. Our inspectors and technicians are all properly licensed and registered, and our inspectors go through training with the Virginia Pest Management Association.
Q. When a client contacts you, who comes to complete the work?
A. All of our chemical treatments are completed in-house by Talent Termite’s licensed registered technicians. This makes sure that all of our technicians are in compliance with state and local laws regarding chemical application, PPE usage, and using proper tools and chemicals. For wood repairs, we subcontract to trusted professionals who have years of experience in this specific field. Anyone we subcontract to is licensed and insured and is someone we would trust doing work on our personal homes.
Q. Do your treatments come with a warranty?
A. Yes! We guarantee all our treatments for one year, and we also offer termite warranty extensions for purchase.
