How serious does the pest infestation have to be to get professional help?
Pests reproduce extremely fast and they are even better at hiding from our sight. Seeing an individual one is almost always a sign of an infestation on the premises. When people try to handle the problem themselves, they might treat the ones they can see, but are usually inefficient in getting rid of the entire population, as it’s always hidden.
Can I use pesticides myself?
Most pesticides can only be bought with a professional license.
Are all insects pests?
Absolutely not. Many insects play a vital part in our ecosystem, we treat only the ones that pose a threat or nuisance to our customers.
Is there a connection between pests and asthma in children?
Yes, bed bugs and cockroaches are known to trigger allergies and even lead to developing asthma in children. Their saliva, droppings and decomposing bodies contain allergens which trigger allergies and worsen asthma attacks.
What do I need to do before a bed bug treatment?
Remove all bedding and linens – sheets, pillowcases, duvet covers, etc. Bag them all up in the same room so the infestation doesn’t spread to the rest of the house. Hot wash on 60-90′ C. Proceed doing the same with clothing around or under the affected areas, especially items stored under the bed – must be emptied and their content must also be hot washed. Meticulously vacuum all areas of the bedroom including both sides of the mattress/es. You will be provided with further instructions before and after the scheduled bed bugs treatment.
How do I prevent mice from entering my home?
Sealing all visible cracks, gaps and openings is the best way. However, full prevention is rarely a possibility.
I have small bite marks on my skin when I wake up in the morning, why is that?
It’s most probably a bed bug infestation. Look for other signs such as small dirts on your sheets, that is what their droppings look like.
If the inside of my cabinets/cupboards are treated, do I need to wash them after the service?
No. You can clean your cabinets before the treatment, if so please remove any loose shelf paper.
Why does it take more than one treatment for bed bugs, Fleas and rodents?
These pests have different life cycles than other target species. During certain stages of their life cycles, treatments work only partially, so we have to catch them between these dormant cycles in order to fully manage their population.
