How Safe Are My Pets?

Pets like cats and dogs have no problems but we recommend that birds, fish or any other fragile pet be covered up or removed during treatment. We simply do this as a precaution only as the pet might be scared to death by our technique rather than the chemical hurting it and we don’t want that to happen. Once the treatment is complete we have had no adverse reports of pets reacting to the treatment.

How Long Do Treatments Last?

How long is a piece of string? It depends on many factors such as weather, if you hose areas down, wind, sun and cleaning. In most cases (in protected areas) the spray products will last around 12 months. The wet season is obviously more difficult to protect from as the water based products will break down in rain affected areas. This means that inside will be fine for 12 months but outside will be good for the ‘dry’ and not so good for the ‘wet’.

Do The Sprays Smell?

Generally the answer would be no as they are marketed as no odour and our experience tells us that. The tick spray is classified as low odour which when dry has no smell. We are very popular for this reason compared to most of our competitors.

Do The Sprays Stain?

If applied correctly no. if you have a lot of dust which sticks to the walls etc. sometimes when the spray is applied by an inexperienced operator too heavily; it causes the spray to run. This then picks up the dust and causes streaks. This is mainly obvious around windows. There is a fine balance between applying enough spray to do the job and over spraying. The windows are a common entry point for pests. We therefore make sure that there is enough spray around these areas. This may result in some streaking.
