After Treatment Tips

This advice is free and for the benefit of the client.
The advice does not form any part of the contracted call out fee.


Cockroaches:

 

Eliminating cockroaches in an apartment or dwelling requires a combined effort on the part of management, tenants and pest control professionals. It is always recommended that you follow the pest prevention advice given by the pest controller including filling any holes/gaps that are discovered. This advice will help to speed up the treatment and also help prevent future infestations in your property. Failure to do so may incur further cost.

After the visit and during the treatment period, you may see one of the following:

a) Dead cockroaches (Young and Adults):

This is normal and means the treatment is working and killing the population of cockroaches in your house.

b) Live cockroaches (Adults only):

A few days after the treatment, this means that cockroaches are still finding a way into your house and are seen before they reach the poison. There must still be entry points.

c) Live cockroaches (Young and Adults):

There are two possibilities. Either you have a nest inside the house somewhere or option b) above.

d) Every day more dead cockroaches (Young and Adults):

This is normal and means the treatment is working and killing the population of cockroaches.

 

e) Decking and artificial grass are great breeding grounds for cockroaches. Please contact us if you think that you have a problem with either and we will quote for a pesticide treatment.

 

Lastly if cockroaches persist, it could be that the hole filling advice has not been followed, or there are more cockroaches than originally reported, or we were not able to deploy the full treatment pesticide dust because of owners reluctance. It may also be you have a serious infestation. In any event another (chargeable) call-out should be considered.

 


Wasps: It is always recommended that you follow the pest prevention advice given by the pest controller ASAP. This advice (given free) will help to speed up the treatment and also help prevent future infestations in your property. Failure to do so may result in a re-infestation and incur further cost.

After the visit and during the treatment period, you may see one of the following:

a) Wasps flying around position of old nest:

Within 24 hours of the treatment, wasps that were not in the nest at the time of treatment will be returning to the location of the old nest. The numbers will reduce over a period of days, due to the repellent and insecticide that is applied. Having said that there are things that can be done to avoid further cost by the client, to repel wasps (e.g. apply wasp fly spray) before a new nest is discovered.

b) Wasps building a new nest in the immediate vicinity:

Just like the location for the original wasps nest, it is entirely the choice of wasps where they make a nest. Having said that there are things that can be done to avoid further cost by the client, to repel wasps (e.g. apply wasp fly spray) before a new nest is discovered. We cannot be responsible for other wasps making a new nest somewhere else or nearby.

c) Wasps still seen in reported area.

It is impossible to eradicate air born insects. So it is important that wasp prevention advice is followed after the pest visit, as this will greatly reduce their numbers to acceptable levels. We guarantee our treatment is effective. If within 3 days the wasps are still active in the same location, and the problem is reported, then we will return free of charge. 

Note: It is important not to delay in the treatment of wasps as a small nest (a few hundred wasps) can quickly become a large nest (a few thousand wasps). We always quote for a normal size nest, and if there are thousands of wasps or they have been there for a while, then it is the responsibility of the homeowner to mention this and we will give a revised quote . A few thousand wasps wading through wasp dust will inevitably mean it will run out, and more dust will need to be applied. Therefore another chargeable visit should be considered.

We can also administer wasp repellent to entire walls
, roof areas or structures to deter wasps from making nests in the immediate area (see Wasp Treatment). Or contact us for a quote.


Rats & Mice: It is always recommended that you follow the pest prevention advice given by the pest controller. This advice will help to speed up the treatment and also help prevent future infestations in your property. It is crucial that the entry and exit points are filled ASAP in order that you do not end up killing visitors, other members of family or friends. Failure to do so may mean you run out of poison which will incur further cost.

After the visit and during the treatment period, you may see one of the following:

a) The rat tubes/traps look empty:

Refill the tubes with the poison, and re-bait the traps with the bait. If you want to catch/kill rats/mice you must refill the tubes/traps with bait/poison.

b) The traps have dead rats/mice in them.

Remove the carcass and re-bait the trap.

 

Note

1) Catching rats and mice and keeping their numbers down outside, is an on-going task. 

2) Depending on the size of the rat and it's appetite, a lethal dose may take more than one feeding from a tube. 

3) It is also important that there is someone in the property to monitor the progress of the treatment, and if necessary, refill/reset the traps/tubes.

4) If you keep the numbers down outside your house, you will reduce the chance of potential problems inside your house.

 

IMPORTANT: Our rat treatments are based on killing a single rat to a possible family of rats. And to this end a complimentary jar of poison/bait will be left at the property. This will be enough to complete the job. 

However, what might be reported in the first instance as a simple rat problem where two or three rats are seen on a daily basis, could turn out to be two or three different rats every day from a much larger rat population/infestation. 

So inside, if the traps are continually catching rats, or outside, the poison in the tubes is constantly being taken AND no reduction in rat sightings are noticed, then a major infestation must be assumed.

Under these circumstances another (chargeable) call out, using mass rat catching techniques must be employed.

If you need help call us.

 


Ants: It is always recommended that you follow the pest prevention advice given by the pest controller. This advice will help to speed up the treatment and also help prevent future infestations in your property. Failure to do so may incur further cost.

During the visit, type of bait the ants prefer (sweet or savory) will be established by the controller and accordingly baited pads will be laid on the trails. After the visit he will leave enough bait/poison to eradicate the ants from these locations - This may take weeks.

After the visit and during the treatment period, you may see one of the following:

a) There are a lot of ants seen.

This is good as the attractant (bait) is working. The more you see the more bait/poison you need to put down. If you want to kill ants the more you can get to leave the nest, the more you see, the more you're going to kill.

b) The ant traps/pads become empty:

The trap/pad should be refilled.

c) No ants are seen around the trap.

The trap has done its job and can be removed.

d) There is no apparent reduction in the numbers of ants seen and there is no interest in the bait.

The bait must have become contaminated since the initial visit, when it was proved to work.  Throw away the pad and use another one. Avoid any actions that could contaminate the bait.

e) There are still a lot of ants around.

There must have been more ants than were originally thought or reported, so if all the advice has been followed then as the problem was larger than initially reported, then keep putting the bait/poison down and allow a little more time for the poison to work, or another chargeable visit should be considered.

 

* Note: Ant trails can be destroyed by the use of aerosol sprays or poisons. DO NOT continue to kill ants with ant sprays while the treatment is in progress as the aerosol will destroy the pheromone trail and reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.

 


Bed Bugs: According to the 2015 Bugs Without Borders survey, bed bugs remain the most difficult pest to treat - more difficult than cockroaches, termites and ants!

Depending on the scope of an infestation and the type of treatment used by a pest professional, it can take several treatments to completely eliminate bed bugs.

Fortunately, there are many things that one can do to prevent bringing bed bugs into the home. Vigilance is the key to bed bug prevention. When out in public - whether at a hotel, store, movie theatre or work place - it is important to be conscientious of all surroundings.

Regular bed bug inspections are the best method of prevention to avoid bed bug infestations.

It is important for the people responsible for cleaning to adopt more rigorous cleaning techniques to avoid, remove, and prevent bedbugs. 

Here are some to keep in mind regarding how to avoid and prevent bed bugs.

Prevention Tips:

  • :
    o Vacuum suitcases after returning from a vacation.
    o Check your sheets for tell-tale blood spots.
    o Consider bringing a large plastic rubbish bag to keep your suitcase in during hotel stays.
  • o Carry a small flashlight to assist you with quick visual inspections.
  • o Never bring second-hand furniture, especially mattresses and box springs, into a home without thoroughly examining for signs of a bed bug infestation. 

o You might consider having a pest control professional inspect the furniture as it is difficult to detect an infestation without training. 

o Remember to treat vehicles, especially car boots with insecticide spray. 

o Regularly inspect areas where pets sleep for signs of bed bugs. Bed bugs can also bite dogs/cats, so have them and their bedding checked as a precaution.

o Bites from various sources are often attributed to bed bugs as the bites only itch in the morning after a nights sleep. There can be many reasons for this the main one being that alcohol the previous night acts as an apathetic so the bites are only noticed the following morning so it is wrongly assumed that bedbugs are the reason. 

o Rented properties with regular changes of occupants are a constant problem, which requires a higher level of diligence on the part of the cleaners.

o It is easy for renters to complain about their accommodation (being bitten and especially bed bugs) but if they are concerned, and before complaining to the landlord, the first place they should contact is the local doctor for an examination of the bites. 

o Regular hoovering and spraying is the best way to deal with these bugs, and do not store the hoover inside the house.

o Keep a diary of movements, so that common factors such as dog grooming, cleaners movements, kids schooling (yes children can bring bed bugs into the house) can be cross referenced with occurrences of bites. 

o Mattress encasement covers, (where the mattress is zipped into and enclosed in the cover) can provide temporary protection solution until another pesticide treatment can be applied.

o If biting still persists after 7 days of first treatment, in the same bedroom on the same bed, then remove any clutter under the bed and quarantine in a spare room. Repeat the insecticide spray treatment in the bedroom and re-spray the area of the bed any time you are bitten. Repeat this approach with any cuddly toys, furry object and rugs etc.

o If after one month you still have problems, then re-infestation is the most likely cause. In this event another call out (chargeable) should be considered.

 


Fleas After a pest control session is over, use some flea spray and flea tablets for your pets right away before letting them back into the house and start the vacuuming process as soon as you have had your first pest treatment. If you have a strong enough vacuum, you can actually vacuum up even the eggs wherever it passes over. Just make sure you cover as much space as is possible. Vacuum the carpets, curtains, under your furniture, beds and also any cracks or crevices in the floorboards and baseboards. 

Remove the bag and store it in a bin liner. Or for non bag cleaners, store the machine outside to prevent any risk of re-infestation.


After the vacuum session, use flea spray again on all the vacuumed areas just in case you missed some of these bugs and their eggs.

 

Our flea powder is very effective and works 24/7.

So if you are still having problems with fleas after 3 - 4 weeks, then either you have unwanted visitors re-infesting your house or more eggs have hatched. In either case you should consider a second (chargeable) treatment.


Kitchen Moths/Bugs As effective as pesticides are, it is not reasonable to think they will achieve total elimination of Indian Meal Moths without any effort on your part. Practicing good sanitation and eliminating conditions that favor Indian meal Moths will speed the work of chemical control and prevent future infestations from returning.


If you are unsure about an item being infested, test it! Place any and all potentially infested materials in a heavy duty ziploc bag for at least a month. If you find the pantry pest accumulating in the bag, you know the foodstuff is contaminated and needs to be discarded. 
After the initial pesticide treatment by the Pest Controller, there will be a 3 - 4 week period when any eggs or pupae that may have been in the dwelling could appear. The residual insecticide applied will kill any newly hatched bugs within this period. It is advisable to purchase a UV Fly Zapper and leave it on 24/7 somewhere in the kitchen so that any newly hatched moths will be attracted to it and killed. After this period, should there be a re-occurrence of the pests then re-infection would need to be looked at and another (chargeable) visit considered.

Getting rid of pests is never a one treatment fix. Almost without exception the pest(s) will have been there unnoticed for a while. After the initial visit by the pest controller, it is important that the home owner follows the verbal advice, the information on the website and the post treatment advice, to complete the eradication process. The only other alternative is another chargeable visit by the pest controller.
