In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Economy Exterminators will temporarily suspend interior service due to considerations of the health and well-being of you, your family members, and our employees. We will continue the exceptional pest control service on the exterior of your home.
If you are feeling unwell, no need to answer the door! You’ll get a full report of your service via email when we are finished servicing your home.
The State of North Carolina has put a stay-at-home order in effect Monday, March 30. Gov. Cooper has designated specific service industries as “Essential to infrastructure” of which pest control has been deemed a “Critical Trade”.

To ensure the health and well being of our customers and technicians, Economy Exterminators has made changes to procedures for the time being. We have educated all our technicians and staff on the guidelines and practices recommended by the CDC.
Our technicians will take the following extra precautions when servicing your home:
- Before coming to your property the technician will put on a new set of blue nitrile gloves
- Technicians will not be collecting signatures on their handheld devices at each service
- Service orders at each account will be sent electronically
- All technicians will wash their hands or use hand sanitizer after each service
These new precautions supplement the existing safety standards set by the company, which help keep our employees and our customers healthy and safe.
We want you to know that we take this health issue seriously and will closely follow information issued from the government at www.cdc.gov.
