Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a difference between DIY Pest Control & using a professional pest control company?
As you probably know, pests will hide in undetectable areas of your home, with most of their activity occurring at night when you are sound asleep. Most pests are virtually impossible to see…unless the population is already out of hand and infestation has occurred. For instance, only 3 – 5% of a nest of carpenter ants will be active during the day time. So if you walk into your kitchen in the morning and see 30 carpenter ants, you can bet there are up to 600 more below the surface. Professional pest control aims to solve the root of the problem rather than applying a mere topical application of pesticide at the siting.
Can't I just monitor the situation to see if it clears up?
Remember that pests multiply like germs when conditions are conducive. While occasional pest sighting may be easily dismissed, remember that insects reproduce at a prolific rate and they WILL breed and multiply if the environment is right as they are in your home. For example, one female cockroach can produce more than 35,000 hatchlings per year and before you know it, infestation occurs. Wishfully thinking a pest problem will go away on its own is not a good idea. This only allows insects more time to breed and establish a stronger foothold in your house, the longer amount of time the insects have had to set up camp, the more difficult it will be to get rid of them.
Why do I need to wait 14 days for a retreatment?
Pests need time to work through their natural processes. As they move they start spreading the products around. Over this period of time the products work their way into the nesting areas. Depending on weather conditions, such as heat and excessive rain, the pests may move at different rates of speed, so complete results can take a little bit of time to be seen. You may see a brief period of increased activity as the pests become uncomfortable. Seeing live pests does not mean the product is not working, but rather that insect is carrying the product and will soon start to die.
What is IPM?
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a decision-making process that anticipates and prevents pest activity and infestation by combining several strategies to achieve long-term solution. Components of an IPM Program may include education, proper waste management, structural repair, maintenance, biological and mechanical control techniques, and pesticide application. IPM employs an approach that requires more participation by the homeowner to achieve long-term pest control.
What is your responsibility as a homeowner? Your continuous involvement and participation are needed to implement your pest control recommendations for an effective program. The appropriate use and application of pesticides are spelled out by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and others, and will vary according to circumstances. Your Technician will tell you where and how pesticides will be applied in or near your home.
