Frequently Asked Questions – Pest Control

Q. Do I need to do anything before pest control treatment?

Please try and allow access to skirting boards by moving furnishings that are up against the wall and removing toys, clothes, pot plants, towels etc. which are close to skirting boards.

It is recommended that you move food items  off benches in kitchen or table tops etc. You do not need to remove food from cupboards as our gel technique ensures no contamination but we recommended covering open food items.

Please ensure your pet can be kept somewhere safe until our Pest Control Technician advises it is safe to return.

A quick vacuum and mop will also allow the treatment to bond more efficiently.
