1. What do I need to do to prepare for Pest Control treatment?

We do ask customers to make some basic preparations to ensure your safety and to assist with the treatment process:

  • Put away or cover all food and clean dishes.
  • Put away towels, toothbrushes and toilet paper.
  • Put away any precious items that may be knocked over.
  • Cover or put away pet food and water bowls.
  • Cover fish tanks and turn off the filter.
  • Cover or put away all pillows.

Additional requirements for spider treatments:

  • Do not remove webs.

Additional requirements for flea treatments:

  • Remove any small items from the floor and underneath beds.
  • Vacuum carpets throughly. Seal and discard the contents of the vacuum bag in the rubbish.

2. How long do I have to be away from the house?

  • For internal treatments you will only need to vacate the house for 3 hours.
  • For external treatments you are able to stay at home if you remain inside and close all doors and windows.

3. Do I have to do anything when I return?

  • Open up doors and windows and remain outside for 15 mins while residual odours air out.
  • Wipe down any food preparation surfaces before use.
  • For spider treatments, leave spider webs in place for 7 days before removing.
  • For flea treatments, do not vacuum for 2-3 days.

4. Are treatments safe for pregnancy/children/babies and pets?

  • All treatments are a based on synthetic pyrethroids (which are based on natural pyrethrums). The products we use have been proven safe in sensitive situations over a number of decades. All treatments are professionally applied.

5. Is there one treatment that will take care of all pests?

  • No. Treatments are most effective if they are tailored to the type of pest. If you're looking for a general preventative maintenance treatment we recommend a fly, spider and Gisborne cockroach treatment.
