For general pest control from Aptive, you can purchase the Four-Seasons Protection Plan. It’s a year-round plan that begins with an initial inspection to determine the weak areas around your home where pests reside. Your technician will provide you with a quarterly treatment plan and return for quarterly service appointments.

Termites are difficult to detect if you’re not an expert in pest control. They reside in hidden, moist areas of your home and can cause irreparable damage if they’re not caught early enough. That’s why it’s crucial to hire a professional to get rid of these pests. Here’s how Orkin’s and Aptive’s termite control plans stack up.
Termite management from Orkin starts with an inspection, which includes checking your crawlspaces and basement for moisture and other evidence of termite activity. Then, you’ll receive a customized treatment plan based on the layout of your home and the severity of the termite infestation.
Termite treatments include Termidor liquid treatments, dry foam, and the Sentricon bait and monitoring system. After the initial visit, you’ll receive continuous monitoring and service to keep the termites away.
