F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Exterminator Questions

Are the products you use safe for my children and pets?

Pest control companies are not allow to say the products are “safe” in any of their advertising so be wary of companies who do. We apply the least toxic product that will solve your problem and only put it into inaccessible places when needed. If there is an alternative to using pesticides to solve the problem, we will make that recommendation. Sometimes simple sanitation can solve a light infestation

Do I need to be out during the extermination treatment?

We follow pesticide labeling very strictly. Some of the products we use say that you cannot be in the same room as the applicator and that the treated surfaces should be dry to the touch before reentry but every label varies. I recommend anyone be out of the adjacent area at all times during treatment just to be careful. We strictly follow all label directions and recommend you do the same when treating your own home with do-it-yourself pest control products

What types of bugs does a pest control service control?

Any general household pest treatment should control ants, spiders, cockroaches, and several other species of crawling insects. Termites require specialized products and application methods and are not controlled by a general household pest treatment.

How long will a pest control treatment be effective?

A South Florida extermination treatment should last upwards of three months. The rain and sun usually contribute to the degradation of an insecticide so applications may last longer in certain seasons. Most infestations are the result of improperly stored pet food or people who leave their pet’s food and water dishes on the floor all day. An applicator’s choice of products also determines how long it will last, so be wary of cheap companies

How often do you need to come and spray around my home?

John did an awesome job. I had some pests outside, but on Thursday I inadvertently disturbed a yellow jacket nest. He came out on Friday and treated my yard, house, and the nest. He even rid my pool area of spider webs. I had a list in my head of what I wanted him to do. He accomplished everything on my list without me asking. He’s prompt, thorough, courteous, and personable. He’s even going to contact me in three months to see how things are going. I highly recommend Johnny Bugs! Thanks also to Thumbtack.
