Generally a yearly inspection for termites and other pests is the best way to minimise pest infestations from developing. Depending on the type of pest and environment more regular treatments may be required.
The products Avay Pest Control uses to eliminate pests have been extensively tested and are approved by the U.S. EPA, and are applied by highly-trained, certified professionals. We also can recommend non-chemical treatment options including baits, exclusion, and sanitation.
Pests are a resilient bunch and are adept at hiding and entering a home in places you would never think. A pest management professional will know where to look for pests and make expert recommendations on what it will take to prevent or eliminate pests. Also, a licensed pest professional is the only person who can apply pesticides.
This will vary greatly depending on the type of pest and the level of infestation. Most pest control companies will give you a price for a standard pest treatment but make sure you understand exactly what you are getting for that price. A good pest controller will explain this for you.
Fleas, ticks and bed bugs are highly mobile pests and can be carried easily between locations or within an apartment building. Identifying the source of the infestation and taking the proper steps to ensure a re-infestation does not occur can take multiple service visits.
Results will vary according to the type of pest, treatment methods and products used. For example, immediate results can be seen when a yellow jacket nest is removed or treated with a liquid pesticide. However, when using baits for ants, rodents, and termites the process takes longer since the pests have to ingest the product for it to be effective. Your inspector and technician will outline what your expectations for your particular problem should be.
Treatment is a general term use to simply describe the many methods and options available to a licensed pest controller.
Options include gels, pastes, baits, granules, dusts, mist sprays or water based liquid sprays. The type of application used is determined by the type of pest, infestation severity and the access to the problem area. In some situations more than one type of treatment may be required.
Yes. We only use the safest, latest and fully tested products available. The treatments are also used in hospitals, schools, child care centres, food manufacturing and many other sensitive situations. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are available available on request.
In the interests of being extra careful and for full peace of mind there may be certain situations when we ask you to vacate the house during treatment. For instance if very young children, someone who is pregnant, or allergy or asthma sufferers are present.
This is fully discussed and explained with you in advance and we will seek your permission before applying any treatment.
