Frequently asked questions
What do I need to do prior to a pest control treatment?
Your technician will need access to skirting boards and room edges, so before any pest control treatment tidy away any articles such as toys, books, clothing from the floor. There is no need to empty kitchen cupboards, we do not use liquids in those areas.
Prior to a flea treatment, your Eastern Suburbs Pest Control technician might ask you to vacuum carpets and mop hard floors.
Should I leave the premises whilst you spray?
We do recommend that you vacate the premises whilst the spraying is in process and for up to two hours afterwards. For the treatment to be most effective it is best to allow it to dry completely before any foot traffic comes into contact with the treated areas.
Do I need to do anything once you have finished?
We recommend that you ventilate the house for up to 3 hours and avoid touching the sprayed areas whilst they are still wet. If you do have contact with the products whilst they are wet, simply wash with soap and water.
Are the products safe?
Absolutely, they are safe for humans and pets. The products are not strong enough to stain carpets or floors, or contaminate your food, and there is no need to wash surfaces or utensils after treatment.
Why do the technicians wear safety clothing?
Because our pest control technicians are exposed to the sprays on a daily basis, and for many years, we ask that all staff use protective clothing. Though the chemicals are completely safe for you and your pets, they are still chemicals and continual contact and inhalation isn't advised.
How often should I have a pest inspection done?
We recommend that you have your property inspected for pests regularly, every 6 or 12 months. If you have had a serious infestation, your Eastern Suburbs Pest Control technician might recommend shorter intervals to ensure the pests are completely eradicated.
Stay pest-free this winter
As we head into winter, many households on the Eastern Suburbs breathe a sigh of relief as it also signals the end of the mosquito season. However, as the evenings get colder, this change in season brings with it a different type of pest to our doors.
Searching for somewhere warm to sleep, as well as widening the search for food, rodents begin to appear in greater numbers inside the home in the winter months. Ceiling insulation is the perfect place for rats and mice to hide, as well as the warm corners behind the refrigerator, or inside wall cavities. And often you don’t discover them until the smell from their droppings becomes noticeable.
But what can we do to protect our home?
Seal any cracks
Rats and mice have incredibly flexible bones, allowing them to squeeze through seemingly impossible holes. A mouse can fit through a hole the size of a pencil and a rat can squeeze through a hole the width of a finger. Look for gaps or holes inside and outside your home and block them securely with steel wool held in place with caulk.
Places to check include: under kitchen cabinets, around doors, around pipes, under sinks, behind appliances, in the attic and crawl space, around windows and doors, and around electrical and plumbing lines.
Keep things clean
Rodents not only come into our homes for shelter, they are also searching for food. Keep any food scraps tidied away, ensure pet food is sealed and don’t keep dirty dishes in the sink overnight. Avoid having clutter around the house so floors can be readily swept and vacuumed to also ensure you don’t have any unwelcome guests this winter.
Clear the perimeter
Keeping a clear area around the exterior of your house removes any sheltered paths that can lead cockroaches and rodents into your home. Remove dense vegetation, trim trees and store any firewood away from the walls. Also, fix any dripping garden taps to take away any possible water source that can bring pests closer to being inside.
If you do find a rodent in your home, there are several over-the-counter baits you can try. Alternatively, call a professional pest control technician who can quickly and easily remove the pest problem and work with you to inspect your home to ensure they don’t return.
