Fumigation is harmful to humans and pets

While it's true that some fumigation methods can be harmful if mishandled, most modern pest control methods use products that are safe for humans and pets. When applied correctly by professionals, these treatments target only the pests, without posing risks to you or your furry friends.

Clean homes don't get pests

Many believe that pests are attracted solely to dirty or unkempt homes. However, even the cleanest homes can suffer from a pest infestation. Pests are often in search of shelter, food, or both. A clean environment might deter some pests, but factors like the location of your home, the weather, or even your neighbours can contribute to a pest problem.

Cheese is the best bait for rats

Contrary to popular belief, cheese is not necessarily the most effective bait for catching rats. Professionals often use specialised baits tailored to the specific type of rodent, ensuring higher success rates.

Understanding the facts about pest control is crucial in tackling any infestation. By debunking these myths, we hope to guide you towards effective and safe pest control practices, ensuring a pest-free home.

    FAQs about pest control

    Why do I still see pests after treatment?

    How often should I have my property treated?

    The frequency varies depending on the type of pests and the level of infestation. Generally, annual or bi-annual treatments are recommended for most homes.

    Are the treatments safe for my children and pets?

    Yes, when applied by professionals, treatments are safe. However, it's best to keep children and pets away during the process and until the treated areas are dry.

    Can pests become resistant to treatments?

    Over time, some pests can develop resistance. That's why it's crucial to hire professionals who stay updated on the latest techniques and products to ensure effectiveness.

    Do I need to prepare my home before a treatment?

    Yes, professionals usually provide specific guidelines, like covering food and moving furniture, to ensure the treatment is effective and safe. Always follow the advice given by your pest control company.
