PEST CONTROL FAQ

​Are the pest control products you use safe?

Absolutely! Safety is our utmost priority. The pest control industry is tightly regulated, and each product undergoes rigorous testing. Rest assured, all the products we use are approved and safe for use around families, pets, and the environment. We operate under Ministry of Environment licensing, and our technicians are fully trained and certified, boasting many years of experience. Your safety and peace of mind are always our top concerns.

Why should I hire a professional pest control service instead of taking care of it myself?

While it’s possible to handle pest control on your own, unqualified application of pesticides often leads to ineffective results. Achieving optimal outcomes requires knowledge and training. Our technicians possess expertise in locating pest hiding spots, accurately identifying the type of pest causing the issue, determining the appropriate pesticides and application rates, and implementing preventive measures to deter pests from returning. In short, our professional pest technicians offer more experience, comprehensive training, and access to superior products, resulting in significantly better results.

Do I need to vacate my home during treatments?

For most standard pest control treatments, there’s no need for clients to vacate their homes, and the process causes minimal disruption to their daily routines. If there’s a need to leave during specific treatments, your technician will advise you accordingly, allowing you to plan your schedule accordingly. Businesses often prefer treatments to be conducted after business hours for added convenience.

Do you guarantee the work you do?

Absolutely! We’re so confident in our ability to address any pest issues that we offer guarantee. Our industry-leading pest control and extermination services are sure to meet and exceed your expectations.

Why should I schedule regular treatments even if I'm not seeing any pests?

Regular service visits are crucial to maintaining a pest-free home. The reason you’re not seeing pests is because the treatments are effective. Regular maintenance is necessary to continue preventing insects, rodents, and other pests from returning.

What if I encounter a pest problem between regular service visits?

If a pest problem arises, simply give us a call! We’ll respond promptly and return to your home or business to address the issue. We’ve built our business and reputation on excellent service and customer satisfaction.

If my home was recently treated, why am I still noticing pest activity?

Pest control isn’t always instantaneous and depends on the type of treatment provided. It takes time for pests to come into contact with the pesticide, for eggs to hatch, and for young pests to make contact with it. Many of our pesticides are residual, meaning they continue to work long after application. While complete elimination may take several weeks, you should start noticing improvements very quickly. Our knowledgeable technicians are available to answer your questions and provide information to ensure pests are thoroughly eliminated.

What dangers do pests pose?

Pests can pose various problems depending on the species. Aside from being nuisances, pests, particularly rodents, can contaminate food and spread bacteria and illnesses like salmonella and E. coli. Roaches are known allergens and can worsen asthma symptoms in susceptible individuals. Stings or bites can result from pests such as bed bugs, mosquitoes, wasps, bees, and fire ants. Moreover, pests like termites, carpenter ants, and rodents may compromise the structural integrity of your home. While this isn’t an exhaustive list, it’s clear that pests need to be addressed promptly. Trust Calgary Pest Exterminator for effective solutions!
