Cockroach and General Pest Treatment
Are the chemicals and sprays you use toxic for me and my family?
No. We, at Central Pest Control, only use 'pyrethrum' based, 'synthetic pyrethroid' based and/or 'botanical' based sprays, dusts and gels for the safety and well being of all.
Will there be a strong odour after the treatment is carried out?
No. We only use nil odour or low odour 'control agents' so there is never any air borne insecticidal residue within your home.
Will we have to leave the house for the day after treatment?
Not for the day. We recommend that you vacate the home until such time as the spray has dried (not for any 'toxic' reasons. Simply, so that you don't slip on any wet surfaces).
Will my pet dog, cat, bird, guinea pig, rabbit, hamster, ferret, snake be okay after treating the home?
Yes. As previously mentioned, we use 'control agents' extremely low in mammalian toxicity (low toxic for mammals). It is wise, however to keep dogs away from treated areas until dry. (Residual spray dries in minutes on a warm sunny day).
Do I have to do any preparations (such as empty kitchen cupboards) before you come over to treat.
No. Treatment for cockroaches, for example, has come a long way over the past decade. We use the latest gels for cockroach control, which are extremely effective in eradicating large cockroach and german cockroach infestations.
If it rains on the day of treatment, will it wash all the insecticides away?
No. We use the most advanced external control agents such as 'Biflex Ultra'. This low toxic but effective insecticide is insoluble and will not be leached away by rainfall or watering of gardens. (If you knew the cost of a 20 litre drum of 'Biflex', you would understand why it would want to be a damned good product).
If it rains after treatment, will it weaken the residual effect of all areas treated?
No. Approximately 95% of any home treated is not even accessible to the rain. (internal of home/ building, kitchen cupboards, roof void, garage, sub-floor area, outbuildings, sheds, under eaves etc.). With regards to external garden areas, please see answer of previous question.
Do you offer any warranty with your work?
Yes. We offer written warranties for pest control work carried out. (We have been operating from the same office address for 3 decades so we should be easy to find).
I received a pamphlet in my letter box offering a $99 pest control treatment. Should I take it up?
I wouldn't. Often these 'fly by nighters' are not licensed pest technicians, nor are they insured. They also use toxic control agents (the more toxic the insecticide is, the cheaper it is to purchase). They are also notoriously difficult to locate if you have an ongoing pest problem a few weeks after treatment.
I consider my mother in law a pest. Are you able to get rid of her?
All mothers in law are unique in their own way. Subsequently, we would need to treat such a request on a case by case basis.
