Home Preparations for Pest Control Services

Many people don’t realize that they need to do a little bit of work at their home before the exterminator comes for pest control services. Lack of preparation can lead to unsuccessful results and re-infestation, so it’s important to follow a few simple preparations and make your home ready.

Managing pests on your own can take a lot more time and cost a lot more money than simply hiring a pest control expert in Fayetteville, NC. From roaches and spiders to bees, wasps, termites and flying jackets, there are a number of pests that can make your life less comfortable. The aim of professional pest control is to eliminate these pests and prevent future problems to make your home a safe, comfortable, and healthy environment. To make sure your pest control service goes smoothly, prepare your home for the arrival of the exterminator.

Here is how:

Pet Preparation
If you have pets, put them away before the exterminator arrives. If you are dealing with a pest problem inside your home, put your pets outside while the technician applies treatment inside; vice versa, put pets in a bedroom or bathroom if the exterminator will be spraying or setting traps outside. Ask Eco Advantage pest control experts about treatments that are safe for pets if you worry about your animals ingesting the spray or powder.

Home Preparation
Cleaning your home does not impress the exterminator as much as it helps with the application of pest control treatments. Moving boxes, dirty laundry, dishes, and trash can get in the way of treatment and make it harder for the technician to effectively treat the problem. Cleaning up your home will also make for a less attractive environment for pests, which can help prevent future infestations.

Although you certainly do not have to move all of your furniture, you can help our pest control exterminators by moving couches, chairs, end tables, and mattresses away from walls. This will give our exterminators more room to apply treatment in hard-to-reach areas where pests frequently harbor and take refuge. Of course you are not required to move anything in preparation for pest control, but it can make treatment more successful.

Family Preparation
Make arrangements for children, live house plants and anyone who is pregnant or has allergies or respiratory problems to be away from the home for an extended period of time during and following extermination treatment. Cover fish aquariums and unplug filters.

Additional Preparation
Take note of any locations on the property where pests, or evidence or pests, have been seen prior to the scheduled appointment. Ask our exterminators for additional instructions. Depending on the specific pests that you’re addressing, specific unique precautions may be required. Compose a list of any questions or concerns you would like to address with our exterminator during your appointment.
