Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
Gemtek Pest Control, Inc announced today that its newly introduced Pest+ Bed Bug and Termite Protection will be included as a part of all new standard service agreements. Additionally, current customers will be able to add the program to their service plans for $120 per year. The program will remain optional for all service plans, but will not be available as a stand-alone product.
Pest+ was introduced several months ago in light of increased bed bug and termite activity in the state of Idaho. The program was created with the consumer in mind, offering an alternative to dealing with the insects, and providing customers with a buffer against high costs for treatment and repair. Typical treatment and repair costs can reach thousands of dollars.
Bed bug populations have spiked over the last decade due to increased travel and stiffer pesticide regulations. These insects find their way into homes by hitchhiking on luggage and clothing, and have been found in hotels, apartments, movie theaters, and on second-hand items.
Termites continue to be a problem for homeowners as they are easily introduced to new areas through wood and lumber shipments. According to estimates, termites cause over $5 billion in property damage and are a source of scrutiny when it comes to home sales and loans.
The protection provided by Pest+ includes an annual home and crawl space inspection for bed bugs and termites. If either of the insects are present, Gemtek will treat them with no additional cost. At the same time, customers will still receive Gemtek’s signature service for general pest treatment.
