Pests We Treat
Frequently asked questions
Every three – to six months is a good guide, although the weather affects this. Pests love steamy weather, so over summer you may need more frequent pest control treatments.
All of our chemicals are registered for use in schools, hospitals, offices and restaurants and all comply with the Australian Safety Standards. As long as you don’t touch the chemicals while wet they will cause you no harm.
Although Pest Control Treatments can vary, usually a chemical is lightly sprayed around the very edges of a room and around entryways. While that is still wet, we advise you to keep your pets away. However, once the chemical is dry (it will dry clear and you won’t smell or see it) it will not harm your family or your pets. It takes up to four hours for the chemical to dry, so it’s best to remove your animals for that period until the chemical is dry.
Please refrain from mopping or steam cleaning your floors immediately after a Pest Control Treatment as this will remove the products and reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. If you can, we recommend not mopping the edges of the room for the first seven days. You should also explain this to any professional cleaners you user.
Yes and it’s great idea to treat both areas at once. Our treatments include fences, sheds, gardens, retaining walls, clothes lines etc so that pests don’t just move outside to inside. However, if it is raining then the Pest Control Treatments will be immediately washed away, so we may not spray yards in bad weather (depending on the product) as it needs time to dry.
There is no need to wash or wipe over anything. Our technicians don’t spray bench tops, or inside cupboards.
Our products have an immediate knock down effect and also a residual effect so you will start to notice the difference immediately, but there will also be a gradual ongoing effect for the net few weeks.
