Pest Control Products Used at Home
Many customers contemplating using the services of a pest control company may be concerned about the products that are being placed in and around their home.
Safety of Children and Pets
With most companies these days the products used are odourless and safe for our children and pets.
Once a pest treatment has been done, the owner or tenant should not smell or see any remaining products. The sprays used today are dry within 20 minutes if applied correctly, only a small amount of the solutions are needed to eradicate pest from a home.
Gels and Powders
Other products used within the pest control industry are; “Gels and Powders” the gel is mainly placed on kitchen cupboard hinges to help with the control of cockroaches. The powders are effective in controlling all pests from cockroaches, silverfish, ants, spiders, termites, fleas and many more, the pests mentioned are the main pests found in and around our homes.
To get rid of rats or mice from a home the use of bait blocks or in some cases liquid baits are used, these products are placed into areas where rodents are more likely to harbour and roam. They can be placed in roof voids or behind fridges and even inside walls. Lockable boxes can also be used in areas where there are likely to be children or pets that may tamper with the blocks.
The products used by a professional pest control service provider are safe for our homes because they are only used in small amounts, the amounts are carefully measured and applied for different situations. It is important to use a professional to ensure a proper job is carried out.
Before doing any pest service it is important that the technician does a thorough inspection of the home, some may think an inspection is done only when doing a “termite inspection” but this is not the case, an inspection should be carried out with every treatment.
By gaining an understanding of the environment surrounding the property and also the internal environment will give the ability to give a much better and safer treatment. Knowing what pests to look for and where they may be hiding is the best way to get rid of pests from a home.
Pest Control Warranty
Once a treatment has been carried out it should come with a warranty period,
this gives the customer peace of mind knowing they can call the company up if they start to have any major problems with pests. The technician should explain what the warranty will cover and if there are any limits.
Not all pests can be covered for a whole twelve months, this will depend on the severity of the problem and the surroundings, spiders and ants are the two biggest problems for pest controllers, this is because they can come from neighbouring properties in abundance. The products used will keep them at bay for some months but a re-spray may be needed at some point during the service warranty period.
