All of the products we use are formulated for cold-blooded insects, and when properly applied, should not pose any threat to your pets?. Please make certain your pets stay away from the treated areas until the areas are dry. The pesticides we use are applied in low enough concentrations, enough to kill insects.
A Liquid Treatment requires a liquid termiticide application to the soil in critical areas creating a barrier between the ground and the house. A Bait Treatment requires placing monitoring stations around the house and placing bait in the stations only when termites are discovered in the stations.
Pest Control covers those pests that live above the ground in your home, while Termite Control covers termites that live under ground. The treatments are different types of treatments.
A Form II is a form used when it is not possible or practical to do some aspect of the treatment to State standards. You should only sign a Form II if you agree that the treatment can not be performed to State standards.
90 % of the insects inside your home came from outside your home. Therefore, by treating the outside we are stopping them from entering all together.
Some products do have an odor. The odor is not the chemical itself but the emulsifiers added by the manufacturer to allow the products to be mixed with water.
All products are approved by the EPA and when applied properly are perfectly safe. While chemical pesticides may eliminate insects effectively, some may also be toxic to humans and lead to severe environmental degradation if not properly managed. By comparison, natural pesticides, which are usually eco-friendly such as the “Mother Earth” line of products.
By comparison, botanical pesticides (plants that produce chemicals defenses that naturally resist insects) have proven to be equally effective in controlling pests and at the same time do not harm the environment or our health.
The stations should be checked on a quarterly basis if there is no activity, and monthly if there is activity. At the time of each visit you will receive a service ticket with all pertinent information regarding your home.
