Your pest control company is coming to your house and you need to prepare a few things for them. You should make sure all trash bags are ready to go, there are no leaks or water damage from a leaky pipe or broken hose under your sink that might attract pests. Trim tree branches away from your house so they don’t touch any surfaces outside of your home and provide easy passage ways for insects and rodents like squirrels and racoons.
Have all the trash in your house taken to the dumpster now. If you don’t have a dumpster, make sure you take the trash out to the curb for pickup. Also, be sure there is no trash on the ground in your yard. The pest control company will set up traps and may have to spray chemicals around your home, so it’s best if there’s nothing for them to come in contact with.
- The pest control technician will be able to tell you if they can spray in your home when you let them know that there are no animals present.
- If you have a dog, make sure it doesn’t go outside while they are spraying.
When you call your pest control company to set up an appointment, it’s important that you let them know about any pets that may be around. This is because different chemicals are used for different pests and some of them can be dangerous for cats or dogs. While the chances of these chemicals harming your pet are small, it’s better safe than sorry! The most common household pets in America include dogs and cats, with birds also being quite popular as well as fish.
The best way to avoid having this happen is to keep any food out of reach from your pet if you suspect that there might be a problem with pesticides used by the pest control company during their visit. If they do ingest any pesticides then they should seek immediate medical attention from a veterinarian but in most cases this won’t happen so simply keeping food away from where they roam around will prevent problems altogether!

When it comes to pest control, you want to make sure that your home is as safe as possible. The chemicals used by a professional pest control company are toxic and shouldn’t be ingested by humans or pets. To ensure this doesn’t happen, make sure that all food items are stored in the refrigerator or freezer until after treatment is complete. If you have a pet, keep them in another room during the application process so they don’t accidentally ingest any of the chemicals!
Depending on how bad your infestation is, look into an extermination company that does bedbug treatments and other types of extermination services.
Bed bugs can be a serious problem, and it’s best to let a professional take care of them. If you already have bed bugs in your home (or know that they’re coming), make sure to thoroughly inspect the areas where you think they might be hiding. You’ll want to focus on any cracks or crevices around your bed, including headboards and footboards. Also check out the mattress itself—bed bugs love burrowing into soft material like cotton or polyester!
If possible, move all of your belongings away from the bed before calling an exterminator. He or she will use special chemicals designed specifically for treating infestations at home or work. These are very effective at killing all stages of the pest—even eggs!
