Yes, usually pest control treatments are safe for pets and children. In Australia, laws dictate that pest control companies must use pesticides that are in compliance with directions and dosages mentioned in the label. We use safe pest control sprays to make sure there is no danger to kids and pets. However, it is advisable to vacate the area to avoid inhalation issues.

3.       Can weather have an impact on pest control services?

Weather can have a potential impact on pest control services. It mainly depends on the nature of the service. In the case of indoor pest control treatment, the weather doesn’t make any difference. However, if an outside pest control treatment is on schedule, rain could wash away the spray. In that case, it depends on the pest controllers if they want to reschedule.
