Our Pest Web pest control specialists get a lot of questions about insects, rodents and treatment options when they're out and about. So much so, we've put together this FAQ section for pest control related questions.
Pests are a resilient bunch and are adept at hiding and entering a home in places you would never think. A pest management professional will know where to look for pests and make expert recommendations on what it will take to prevent or eliminate pests. Also, a licensed pest professional is the only person who can apply pesticides.
Results will vary according to the type of pest, treatment methods and products used. For example, immediate results can be seen when a yellow jacket nest is removed or treated with a liquid pesticide. However, when using baits for ants, rodents, and termites the process takes longer since the pests have to ingest the product for it to be effective. Your inspector and technician will outline what your expectations for your particular problem should be.
A regularly scheduled pest service will stop pests before they become a problem. It allows our technicians to watch for and spot possible signs of pest activity and act immediately to eliminate any threat. A preventative, pro-active approach to managing pests will keep your home and family safe from annoying and potentially harmful pests.
Each of our services are priced a little differently depending on the size of your home or business, the type of service, the time and materials being used and the type of pest being treated. Normally, we can give you a very good idea of pricing just by calling in and listening to your description of the situation. For commercial accounts, we would be happy to send out one of Account Managers or licensed technicians to take a look at your facility and give you a verbal or written proposal.
Of course! DIY comes easy with the advice from one of our pros when you stop in to visit us at one of our locations. Keep in mind though, that having the expertise of how to apply those products as well as years of experience learning each pest’s habits is enormously helpful and much more effective. In addition, there are certain products that cannot be sold to the general public. Therefore, while some things can be done yourself, please don’t underestimate the value of a licensed professional.
Pest Web strives to ensure that our licensed technicians respond as immediately as necessary. For general pest control issues, we will normally schedule service for the same day or the next day depending on what is convenient for you.
We believe in integrity and quality service. We will do our absolute best to make sure that you are happy with the quality and results of your service. Different types of pests are guaranteed differently. When you call us to receive your free estimate, we would be happy to explain the guarantees. Of course, our best guarantee comes with ongoing services. When you have ongoing services, they normally include a 365 day a year guarantee. Specifics about each type of ongoing plan can be explained by any staff member by calling 0772 645 531.
For general pest control services, you do not have to leave at all. There are certain medical situations where we will recommend that the customer leave the area. For instance, we would recommend for customers on oxygen to leave the home long enough to be sure that all “the dust settles” from our visit before reentering the home. There are other services where we do require customers to leave their home. For instance, flea treatments require that all pets and residents leave the home for four to six hours. This allows time for the products we use to settle before anyone reenters the home.
Though the termites live in the soil, they are known to infest even high rise buildings having more than 100 storeys, moving all the way from ground to the top floor. Rats are also known to be excellent climbers and use drain pipes, electric cables, lift shafts etc. to reach the top floors.
