So you’ve booked your “General Pest Treatment” with Integrity Pest Control Mackay, at last you are going to get rid of those Spiders, Ants, Cockroaches and Silverfish. Here’s some commonly asked questions that you may have:
- How long will my General Pest Treatment take? A: typically 1.5 to 2 hrs, depending on property type, size, pest pressure etc.
- Do I Need to Vacate for the treatment? A: Re-entry is recommended 1.5 hrs after treatment is completed, this ensures all treated areas are completely dry & safe to touch. Most of our customers meet at the property to point out any areas of concern, before vacating, and our trusted technician locks up when finished. If this is not possible for you, just talk to your technician about alternative arrangements.
- What about pets? A: We recommend fish tanks be covered, dogs & cats could ideally be taken off site or alternatively cats in a cat cage or dogs on a leash away from the treated areas. This avoids the possibility of them contacting a treated area before it’s dry. Once dry, treated areas are perfectly safe to touch for people and pets.
- Do I need to remove items from cupboards? A: No, we won’t treat items in your cupboards but we will treat the cracks & crevasses and use targeted baits & gels to control creepy crawlies in these areas.
- What if it rains? A: We want the exterior treatment to dry before heavy rain, once it dries, it binds to the surface it’s applied to so won’t immediately wash off with the first shower however constant exposure to the elements will eventually wear it down, 1-2 hrs is usually enough time to dry.
- How long will a general pest treatment last? A: This depends on your construction type, pest pressure and various other variables, but in general, you can expect the treatment to continue to kill for up to 12 months. In fact we offer a 12 month warranty on our General Pest Treatments!
