What to do before and after pest control treatment

By Pest Busters Olympia WA


Our homes can be seriously endangered by cockroaches and other pests like rodents, flies, or spiders. They can spread diseases and scare us. A pest control company is the best way to eliminate them. This article will show you how to prevent and treat pest infestations.

Pest control professionals provide a variety of services, including bed bug control and termite treatment. Professional pest control cannot guarantee the absence of unwanted pests in your home. You must take responsibility for your home before and after you have done pest control. Before you begin the pest control treatment, ensure that your food, clothing, furniture, etc. are properly stored. Once the treatment is complete, you can re-infest them by utilizing them.


Let's first review the basics. The type of pest will almost always dictate the course of action. However, these rules are applicable in all situations.


There are some things you need to do before you purchase a pest control treatment.

Let's look at some things you should consider before scheduling your pest control appointment.


1. Access: Remove any large furniture and appliances from the corners of your home. This will make it easier for pest control professionals to access your home. This allows them to reach the places where most bugs grow. This means that your furniture and appliances will not be damaged by any chemical sprays or spills. You can even try pest control at your home.


2. Clothing and Furniture You can store them in cabinets. If possible, you can seal the gaps between drawers and doors with a wide sellotape. Because it is made from paper, masking tape won't work and can absorb any chemicals that are applied.


All bed sheets, blankets, and cushions, as well as pillows and mattresses, must be removed from the bed. If you don't have enough storage space, wrap your items in plastic wrap.


Cover your tables, chairs, and sofas with plastic wrap. Because of the dangers of toxins, cloth sheets might not suffice.


* Certain pests like termites may require the removal of all wooden furniture including storage beds.


3. Kitchen and Dining Room:


* Empty your garbage can


Clear your countertops and place all silverware, plates, and cups away. Because they attract pests more than other storage items, kitchen cabinets are often sprayed.


* Kitchen appliances that are small should be removed from the kitchen. If that is not possible, unplug them. Wrap them in plastic wrap. You can leave them unattended if you have to.


If possible, cover the water exit of your water filter using plastic.


* Spray the sinks in your kitchen. Do not cover them or store them.


* Food should always be stored in thick plastic containers. Thin plastic can be broken by pests to gain entry to your home. If possible, spice and chips should be stored in the refrigerator.


* You will need to unplug your refrigerator while we are on the topic of your fridge. You can get rid of any perishables and throw away any leftovers.


4. Pest control chemicals can be very harmful to pets. It is best to leave your pet with someone you know for the duration of the pest control treatment.


• Take care to store pet toys and bedding.


* Bring your pet to the veterinarian for a tick and flea treatment.


* Aquariums should be fully covered with plastic. Make sure your fish are fed enough food for the duration. If you don't have an auto feeder, now is the time to get one.


Avoid using aquarium air pumps as they can absorb contaminants and then introduce them to the water.


  • Consider covering your wall with plastic if the paint you choose isn't compatible with the chemicals.
