How to prepare for pest control?

While the preparation required of the homeowner is fairly standard, BUGMAN Pest Elimination will provide you with a list of specific prep steps to be completed before our visit. Because a lack of preparation could make a treatment unsafe or cause reinfestation of the entire home or building, we will not treat areas that are not prepared to our specifications.

How long does a pest control last?

Moisture, sanitation, and environmental conditions can all affect how long a treatment may last. At BUGMAN Pest Elimination, our goal is to eliminate pests with 1 treatment. However, sometimes pests require 2-3 treatments, and last approximately 2-3 weeks each treatment.

After carrying out pest control it is advisable to remain at least 2 to 4 hours out of your home so that you do not inhale any fumes of the treatments.

Typically, cleaning of the treated area can safely take place about three to five days after application. If the exterminator left bait around your home, cleaning is typically safe, as long as you stay away from the pieces.
