FAQ

There are many questions people ask about pest management techniques and treatments. Here are a few of the most common. If you have a question or a concern regarding pest control in and around your home or business premises, contact us and one of our expert technicians will answer it for you.

When you arrange for an Envirotechnics pest management technician to visit your property, whether for an inspection or a treatment, he will tell you all you need to know about the particular treatment being applied and, once again, will be happy to answer any queries you may have.

Does it cost extra for an urgent call out?

If it is outside business hours we may need to charge for an urgent call out.


Do I need to vacate the premises while you are treating them?

If we are spraying chemical, children and adults need to be inside with doors and windows closed during the treatment.

Children’s toys and furniture should be brought inside prior to spraying.

It is safe to go back outside after the product is dry.


Is spraying my home dangerous to my pets?

Pets need to be kept inside or off-site during any treatment, whether spraying or baiting.

Pets’ bowls and toys should be put away prior to spraying.

It is generally safe to go back outside after the product is dry.


Are cockroach baits dangerous to my children or pets?

The products we used are very specific in their mode of action so the risk to children and pets is extremely low.


Why are you unable to remove bee hives?

The threat of disease to domestic bees is the the main reason. Also access to the hive is generally restricted, which prevents removal.


What if I am pregnant or breast feeding?

If we are spraying chemical externally, we would advise the occupant to vacate the premises for a minimum of four (4) hours.

In the event that the treatment was internal we would recommend that the house or dwelling is ventilated for a minimum of two (2) hours before re-entry (this should be done by the partner or friend).

If we are not spraying, then it is safe to stay at home. An example of this is rodent baiting.


What if I am hyper-allergic or have a weakened immune system?

If we are spraying chemical, it is best to leave the house for 4 hours while the technician conducts the treatment.

If we are not spraying, then it is safe to stay at home. An example of this is rodent baiting.
