The days, weeks and months after a general pest control treatment can have varied effects on customers depending on what information was explained at the time of the treatment by the pest controller.
A general pest control is the most common pest treatment home owners have each year, and is an inspection and spray for household pests such as cockroaches, silverfish, ants and spiders.
So what should you expect after a general pest control?
Well this depends on a lot of different things, such as the location of the property and its surroundings, and most importantly the condition of the property.
In this case ‘condition’ relates to cleanliness and hygiene, which can be a touchy subject for a technician to raise with a customer.
What a lot of pest control technicians do is – absolutely nothing. They apply the treatment, knowing that there will be problems in the future; then when the customer calls to complain, they get a “sorry no warranty” response.
At Best 1 we prefer to explain the pest control procedure, and tell you if there is any need for a cleanup.
We would also explain a few things that you would not expect, such as a possible increase in pest activity after the treatment. This can happen because some of the products used have flushing agents in them, and can drive pests out so that you see them.
You, as a customer, must know and understand what to expect after a pest treatment has been done, and this will be explained to you by the pest technician that carries out the work. They may also give you important pest control advice.
If there is any kind of infestation, the first treatment done by the technician is an initial treatment, and a second treatment is necessary about one month later. This is done to give you time to clean any areas that need attention, and then we re-spray to put the control products back in place.
This is why every pest job is different and can need a different approach to obtain a successful outcome.
