Why should homeowners avoid trying control stinging insects without the help of a trained professional?
Many types of stinging insects, such as yellow jackets, are social insects. They will sting to protect themselves and members of their colony. The insects give off pheromones, which cause other members of the colony to react as well. The chaotic reaction is too dangerous for a homeowner to address alone.
How often should your property be treated for mosquitoes?
The length of effectiveness is dependent upon several variables including temperature, humidity, surfaces treated, materials and control methods employed. The time lapse between treatments depends upon these factors and specifically the materials used.
What is the difference between granules and liquid spray?
A granular form of a pesticide has the active ingredient pre-diluted and impregnated on clay, paper or other sand like particles. Granules can be equally effective to sprays in damp winter conditions for a variety of crawling perimeter pests (ants, earwigs, millipedes, Oriental Cockroaches, etc.). Sprays are most effective on contact for ornamental and turf pests such as caterpillars, aphids, scale, whiteflies, and most spring and summer garden pests.
When you come to spray my house, how long will it take?
It depends on the type of pest, and several other factors. A routine initial for example, a service for ants, for example, will often take less than one hour, and still control the problem for several months. Your technician will recommend actions you can take to reduce pest pressure around your home. Rodent problems may require several service visits, and cultural control measures as well.
Do I need to leave during treatment, or may I stay home?
Our technician will advise you if it is necessary to leave the home, or only to avoid specific areas until any treated surfaces have had time to dry. Advise our technician of any sensitive persons, pets, or organic gardens requiring extra care. Fish ponds are especially sensitive and our technicians will carefully avoid any exposure.
Is it safe for my pet to go outside after spraying?
Every pesticide requires that pets and people avoid treated surfaces until dry. This is the minimum standard for all products. Once dry, the material does not easily transfer to paws or human skin.
I have a clean house but still have bugs, why?
Pests want what we have; food, water and shelter. Many pests, such as roaches and even rodents, can fit through tiny cracks and crevices in search of these resources. This can happen no matter how clean your house may be. Other pests are not related to cleanliness at all. They are hitchhikers in search of a blood meal that people can easily, and often unknowingly, transfer. It is best to have a trusted professional conduct a thorough inspection of your home.
I have roaches in my home, and have tried sprays and bombs, but they did not seem to be working. What else can I do?
Cockroaches can be very difficult to control because so many things can contribute to their survival such as food, water and shelter. Aerosol bombs are not very effective in controlling cockroaches; however, proper placement of the other materials is the key to success. Our service professionals can assist in controlling cockroaches as well as other pests.
How much damage do termites cause?
The truth is there are two kinds of homes: those that have had termites, and those that will get them. Termites work 24 hours/7 days a week at damaging the wood in and around a structure. While they cause $5 billion in damage each year, there is no reason to think that termites cannot be controlled.
