I have had a Rodent Treatment, will I see dead rats or mice in my home?
It is really hard to say as each treatment is different. Around 9 out of 10 rodents do die outside as they go searching for a water source as the bait we use has a thinning agent in it causing the rodents to become dehydrated. There is that 1% that a rodent does die inside, this is due to your home having a water source. If the rodents do die the bait we use coagulates their blood and you may smell an odour for around 24 to 48 hours.
Will the bait used for Rodent Treatments affect my kids or pets?
No, we strategically place baits where children and pets cannot get to. For any rodent treatments which are outside or in certain parts of your home where bait needs to be applied we have lockable bait stations which children and pets cannot get into.
What if it rains the day of my treatment?
If it is raining the day of your treatment you will receive a call from one of our customer service representatives to advise you that we need to reschedule your appointment.
