How long do we have to wait before its safe to go outside after treatment?
If we are doing a general pest control treatment outside, we usually recommend waiting for the product to dry before entering the area. Interior treatments are generally a bit longer, but each service is different and the technician can let you know the exact amount of time to wait.
Do I need to keep my dogs off the yard after gopher traps have been placed?
Not necessarily. The dog(s) might show some curiosity towards the trap, but generally dogs will not bother the traps. To a dog, it’s basically a peace a stainless steel in the ground. We mark our traps with a bright orange flag so that you will know where the traps are.
Is the gopher bait harmful to my pets?
The bait is placed inside the burrows and never above ground. Your pets wont have access to the bait unless they dig it out and eat it.
Is the CO harmful to my pets?
Absolutely not. The CO is pumped directly into the burrows. Once the machine is turned off, the smoke dissipates and it’s done within minutes. Anyone above ground will not be affected.

I like to keep the gate to my backyard locked. How do you perform the service if my gate is locked?
We generally send out an email the day before we come out. This way you know to leave us a key somewhere on the property, leave the gate unlocked for that day, or give us a key so that we can keep it on hand. We keep our keys in a lock box in the office where the technician picks them up before the service and returns them afterwards.
I like to be home for each service. Can you make sure I'm home before servicing my home?
We typically need you to be home for the first service, after that most services are done on the exterior of the home and yard and you don’t have to sit and wait for the pest control technician all day. If you must be home, we usually give a two hour window and that can be arranged by calling or emailing before your next appointment.
Will the lawn granules harm my pets?
No, the lawn granules are so fine that they fall in between the blades of grass and onto the soil. Once the soil gets moisture or wet, the granules spead the tiny amounts of pesticide for ants, spiders, and other crawling insects. It does not harm mammals.
Will I need to have the inside of my home treated each service?
Absolutely not. The products we use inside will hold up a lot longer inside than the outside. And as long as the exterior is being maintained, the inside should be good. But if you do see some insects inside, then we can spot treat or place some monitors to find out where they are coming from.
