​If My Home Was Recently Treated, Why Am I Still Seeing Pest Activity?

Control of pests is not always immediate and depends on the treatment that was provided. It takes time for pests to come in contact with the pesticide and then for the babies to hatch and also contact it. Many of our pesticides are residuals, which means that they will continue to work for a long time after they are applied. It could take several weeks to achieve complete knockdown, but you should start to see improvements very quickly. Our knowledgeable technicians will answer your questions and provide information that will be useful in making sure that the pests are completely eliminated.

After A Chemical Spray Treatment How Long Do We Have To Be Out Of The Home?

​Most standard pest control treatments no longer require clients to leave their homes and involve little to no disruption in their daily schedule. If it would be advisable to leave during specific treatments, your technician will let you know so that you can arrange your schedule. Businesses typically prefer to have treatments done after business hours for convenience.

Do I Need To Prep For The Service, Is It A Lot Of Work?

Some services require no preparation from the owner other than access. Other Services require more preparation such as Bed Bug service and Flea treatments. Our Customer Service Rep will guide you with a preparation list for your service.
