Frequently Asked Pest Control Questions
Is your products safe for children and pets?
Yes, the products we use are safe for children and pets but like any poison we ask that all babies/young children and pets be kept from wet chemical until the chemical has dried.
Is your product safe for elderly people?
Just as babies and pets, seniors are highly sensitive so too are our grandparents and although safe, we ask to be notified of any medical conditions anyone may have within the home.
What types of pests are controlled with your product?

Crickets, Spiders, Sliverfish, Earwigs, Centipedes, Millipedes, Ants (all species), Scorpions, Cockroaches (all species), Bed bugs, Bees/Wasps, Flies.
The Rodenticide products cover:
Mice (all species), Roof rat and Norway rat, which are the most common in our area.
Is there a connection between pests and asthma in children?
Cockroaches are a leading trigger of allergies and asthma attacks. The pests’ saliva, droppings and decomposing bodies contain allergen proteins known to trigger allergies and increase the severity of asthma symptoms, especially in children.
How can professional pest management help alleviate asthma?
The proper management of pests will help prevent or remove pests that can trigger asthma. A pest management professional can inspect a home for these pests, treat, eliminate them and provide you with recommendations to prevent re-infestation.
What are cockroach/mouse allergens? What is it in these pests that cause the problem?
“Frass,” or carcasses, feces and other debris, is considered to be the allergen triggering asthma and/or attacks.
What happens after you control the pests? If the frass is left behind, won’t it pose a health risk also?
The pest management professional will detail a plan for pre/post treatment that will sanitize the home.
