Are pest control treatments safe for children and pets?
Yes, our treatments are safe for use in areas which children and pets frequent. Commonly, we use low odour, low toxicity water based preparations, combined with a variety of other APVMA approved products and current methods. We do suggest that people who are sensitive to insecticide products may wish to be away from the premises during treatment.
What should we do if we have termites?
It is VERY IMPORTANT that once you have located any suspected termite activity that you LEAVE IT ALONE! DO NOT TOUCH IT UNTIL A PROFESSIONAL TERMITE MANAGER HAS SEEN IT! Disturbing the active termites or spraying them with household insecticides can make professional termite treatment more difficult and slow down the process. This can actually result in more timber damage rather than less.
After you have called us, Neil will come to your home and carry out a Termite Inspection to identify the extent of the activity and the genus of Termite that may be present. He will also try to ascertain the level of visible timber damage within the building. He can discuss options available to you, advise the type of treatment we recommend and provide a quote.
Are weed control treatments safe for children and pets?
Yes, our treatments are safe for use in areas which children and pets frequent, providing a few simple precautions are followed. We generally suggest you put your animals in an enclosed area e.g. inside your home while spraying is carried out. The weed control products dries quickly so animals and children are able to return to the yard after a very short period of time.
