Yes. Pest control services are generally safe. First of all, not all pest control treatments depend on chemicals and sprays. According to the pest type and the overall situation, The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Team will use the most suitable methods that include techniques like making physical changes to the surrounding environment, trapping, and eco-friendly treatment methods.
If the situation requires using pesticides, we use the safest formulations and baits available and apply them directly where pests are living and reproducing. We do not overuse chemicals and avoid any unnecessary applications to minimize the impact that these products might have on humans and pets.
If there is an allergic child or a pregnant woman, we ask the homeowner to find another place for them while treating the house and until the treatments dry completely. The risks are low, but it is a necessary safety precaution.
If you have any questions or concerns about our pest control services and treatments, speak with our technicians before they start working at your place. They will keep your concerns in mind and consider them while treating your place. After all, pest control services are about the safety of your family.
The safety of everyone at your home is the most important thing for us. After inspecting your place, we will be able to determine the type of pest infestation and the different techniques we can use to eliminate it. The techniques do not only include the use of chemical products but also environmental changes and using non-chemical products.
Therefore, if you or any family member has a respiratory problem such as asthma or allergies, or sensitivity to chemical products, we will modify our treatment plan to suit the situation.
Treatment is a general concept used in the pest control industry to describe the wide variety of options, techniques, and products available to professional pest control experts like us. The treatment options include pastes, gels, dust, mist sprayers, water-based liquid sprayers, baits, and many other options. Our experts determine the best type of applications to be used according to many factors such as the type of pests, the severity of the infestation, and the best access to the infected area. In some cases, we have to use more than one type of treatment.
The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Team will explain to you all the treatment options and the best treatment option for your property’s problem.
The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Technicians can provide you with a checklist of what should be done before treating your place. This may include removing your pets temporarily from the property or at least from the treated area.
After finishing the treatment, your technician will tell you when it is safe for your pets to re-enter the home.
Also, if there is a flea infestation, we may recommend taking your pet to the vet to make sure that it is not infected.
This depends on many factors such as the type of the pest infestation and their locations. Our treatments usually focus on the locations where pests live, hide, and breed.
There are usually two types of treatments: internal and external. Internal treatments are usually applied in places that none will come in contact with while external treatments are applied around your property and at areas where pests may be living and breeding.
Open food packets and containers are the only things that we may ask to be removed and covered. Our technicians will apply the treatments in certain areas, and they have special covers that can be used when necessary.
This depends usually on the type of pest infestation at your home. In most cases, you do not have to leave your place, but in some cases, your technicians may advise you to stay out of your place and re-enter after a certain period.
It is recommended to leave liquid treatment to dry out before entering the treated area.
When external spray pesticides are applied, all windows and external doors must be closed while internal treatments that include applying fine mist pesticides such as flea treatments require leaving the property for a while until the treatments dry out completely.
Just like humans and animals, pests and insects need food, water, and shelter and they do their best to find all of them no matter how clean you keep your place.
