Frequently Asked Questions

What type of materials do you use and how toxic are they?
All of the pesticides we use are registered specifically for the state of California. Our goal is to expose only pests to pesticides by carefully following all of the manufacturer's instructions as well as all rules and regulations from our licensing agencies. Even relatively non-toxic materials still require proper safety precautions.
Do you offer any "green" pest control options?
Yes! We are happy to offer green products and low-odor solutions for the customer to choose from when developing an individual pest management program.

How long will my appointment take?
It depends on the type of pest and many other factors. A routine service for ants, for example, will often take less than an hour. Your technician will suggest things you can do to reduce pest issues around your home.
Is there anything I need to do to my home prior to my pest control treatment?
Your technician will advise you to remove pet food, water dishes, exposed food items, and children's toys from areas he needs to treat. If there are active pests indoors, other items may need attention.
Is it safe for my pet to go outside after spraying?
Every pesticide requires that pets and people avoid treated surfaces until dry. This is the minimum standard for all products.
If my house is treated inside, when is it safe for my children to be on the ground?
Generally 2 to 4 hours or until dry. Your technician will inform you in advance of any precautions required by the label and our safety policy. If you have any questions you can always feel free to call our office.
I have a bug and I don't know what it is. Can you help me?
Yes! Our technicians can usually identify a bug by asking you a few questions about where you found it, size, color, and general shape.
Help! I have bed bugs. Can you get rid of them?
Yes, but be prepared for a major effort. Bed bugs are perhaps the most difficult pests we face. Please call us to discuss your problem and the solution.
