1. Why should the outside rather than the inside of my home be treated for pests?
By treating the exterior of your home, pests can be stopped in their tracks before they ever get inside and invade your family's living space where they can potentially cause problems.
2. How long does a perimeter pest treatment last?
The perimeter pest treatment our company uses stops pests fast, while products other companies use can take days to control pests. It's difficult to give an exact length of time on how long a treatment will last because it often depends on your specific pest problem and geography. Renewal applications may be needed depending on the size of your problems, your climate and other factors.
3. What should I do to prepare for a perimeter treatment?
One of the best things about perimeter pest control is how easy it is on you. Unlike indoor treatment where you're required to cover and move certain items, there is little preparation on your part prior to the technician making the treatment. Simply close the windows, and pick up any toys, tools, or garden hoses lying next to the house. Another plus: Since the exterior of your home is being treated, you don't have to be home for the technician to perform the treatment.
4. Where exactly does the perimeter treatment take place?
The pest control product we use for perimeter treatments is applied in a band (up to 6 -feet wide) of soil, mulch and lawn surrounding and adjacent to your home. It can also be applied directly on your home's foundation (depending on your individual situation) up to a heigh of two to three feet. This area is where pests are usually found and can gain entrance into your home.
5. Will the treatment harm the grass, shrubberies or flowers around my home?
No. Even with direct contact, you never have to worry about the product we use harming the soil or lawn.
6. Should children or pets be kepts away from the treated area?
Children and pets should be kept off the treated area until surfaces are dry.
7. Is there any odor with the treatment?
No. One of the many advantages of the product we use is there's no bothersome odor for your family and pets.
