Are the pest control products safe for my unborn baby, newborn baby or children?
Pest2Kill recommends minimising exposure to all pesticides. The highest risk occurs as products are applied, hence we advise you vacate the property whilst treatment application takes place and return once products have dried which usually takes 3-4 hours depending on weather conditions.
Pest2Kill services child care centres, schools and hospitals with the same products used in your home. All pesticides carry inherent dangers however we have selected the safest and most highly regarded anti pest products in the industry and our technicians are trained in the application to minimise risks to humans and pets.
Are the pest control products used safe for my pets?
Pest2Kill recommends removing all pets from the area during pest control treatments as well as any food or water bowls. If there is an external treatment being carried out, it is ideal if pets are not present however if this is not possible then place pets in the garage or laundry whilst the exterior is being treated. The animal can be returned outside once the products used have dried which usually takes 3-4 hours depending on weather conditions.
Birds in mobile cages should ideally be moved away from the area being treated and covered if still on the property. Large aviaries need to be covered with tarps or similar whilst the treatment is being carried out.
Fish inside the premises should have the top of the tank covered in glad wrap, towel etc and the filter should be turned off. Fish ponds around the premises must be covered with a tarp or cover.
Reptiles are highly at risk to many pesticides and can be particularly susceptible to Pyrethrins which are very commonly used in pest management because of their low toxicity to humans. Therefore it is best to have reptiles removed during pest treatments. If you cannot move the reptile elsewhere consider not having the interior of your home treated or confining the reptile to one room and not treating that particular room. Reptiles that are affected by Pyrethrins can be more adversely affected in cold weather, so try to wait until it is warm as the risk of poisoning dramatically reduces.
Are your products environmentally friendly?
These days, the vast majority of gels, sprays and other pest control formulations available to the pest management industry are researched and manufactured with the health and safety of humans and the environment as a top priority. Most products are designed to break down over time, therefore avoiding any potential compound to sensitive ecosystems. Pest2Kill offers even greener anti pest alternatives however for severe pest infestations, a more toxic pest treatment may be necessary.

How long does it take for the product to take effect?
The products will start to take effect immediately once applied in and around your home, however varying time frames apply to reach full effectiveness dependent upon the pest being treated and the product used. Our pest control technicians will advise you on the time frames for your individual property on the day of treatment. Depending on the severity of the pest infestation a follow up or series of treatments may be required.
Should I clean my house before or after the pest control treatment?
Pest2Kill recommends your home is cleaned clean your home before the treatment to prevent washing away products. Cleaning prior will also enhance the results of the pest control treatment.
How long should I wait until I can clean my house after a pest treatment?
Pest2Kill recommends waiting 5-7 days post pest treatment before cleaning your home. However, if you must clean prior, we recommend leaving an inch around any skirting boards to avoid washing away products. Exteriors of windows and doors should be given 7-14 days before cleaning off the residues.
What happens if it’s raining on the day of treatment?
If there is only slight rain on the day, then pest treatment can be carried out as normal as the rain can help products soak into treatment areas. However, if there is a heavy downpour of rain, our technicians may service inside your home first and return another day to complete the service outside if the rain persists. Alternatively, you can call Pest2Kill to reschedule your pest control service at a later date.
What happens if it rains the day after the pest treatment service?
Light rain will not have an effect on the applied pest products. Normally, rain should not adversely affect the treatment to a great degree unless there is extreme rain and only then may outside areas directly affected by heavy rain be compromised.
Will the anti pest products stain my carpet or ruin any furniture?
No, the products will not cause damage to your home or furniture. In the ca flea treatments where the entire carpets are treated, our Pes2Kill technicians will test a small obscure area of carpet if in doubt.
Do I need to remove anything from my cupboards or move any furniture?
Generally there is no need to remove any items from within your cupboards during standard treatments. It may be required with severe german cockroach infestations but we will advise during treatment.
How long will the pest treatment take?
