Frequently Asked Questions About Our Services
What types of pests do you handle?
People most often call us to help with the most common types of household pests; Rats, Mice, Bedbugs, Fleas, Cockroaches, Moths, Ants, Wasps and so forth. We’re capable of dealing with all pests found in residential and commercial properties.
What’s your response time?
Our goal is always to respond to our customers’ needs as quickly as we can, and we can typically respond within 4 hours. Our performance does vary based on the number of customers we have at any one time.
Do I have to be present when you come?
You don’t have to be on the premises if you’re calling us in to deal with an outdoor problem, like a wasp nest in your back garden. If you have a pest problem inside your home, then our technician must be met by a member of the household. This is a necessity to explain any Health & Safety issues.
Am I supposed to be seeing dead bugs in the days after you’ve applied your pest treatment? Do I have a more serious infestation to worry about?
Many treatments do cause dead bugs to show up for an extended period after we have applied them. This is normal, and it indicates that the treatment is doing its job.
Do we have to leave our home while you treat it? How do your treatments affect pets?
None of our treatments require you to leave the home. You do NOT need to leave. Household pets need to be kept away from treated surfaces, but only while those surfaces are drying. Once they’re dry they’re entirely safe. This should happen rapidly, but the best policy is to keep pets off treated surfaces for at least one to two hours. Aquariums and fish bowls should be covered when insecticides are applied.
For most household uses, pesticides perform effectively at very low concentrations. Most sprays and liquids are less than one percent active pesticide by volume. This is more than powerful enough to kill insects, but far too diluted to expose humans or household animals to any undue risk. We follow (and provide) all the necessary safety instructions to keep risk to an absolute minimum.
When used to treat home pest infections, treatments are typically dispensed with a droplet size that does not linger in the air for any great length of time. The chance of breathing in pesticide is minimal. Treated surfaces become entirely safe as soon as they are dry, and this happens quickly. The dry residue left behind is lethal to insects but harmless to people. Even the residue wears away after a period of time – typically just long enough for household pests to come in contact with it.
For further general advice on pesticides, please consult the Environmental Protection Agency’s informative website on the topic: www.epa.gov/pesticides.

I spend plenty of time making sure my house stays clean. Why do I still have bugs?
The key elements that all pests desire – food, shelter, and water – are available in every home. Multiple pest species like rats and cockroaches are capable of traveling great distances and fitting through the smallest of openings in order to find these required conditions. This process isn’t affected by the cleanliness of your home; pests come from the environment at large.
The best policy is to let a trained professional survey your home for pest activity. If you’d like to put an experienced, highly-trained Envirosafe pest control specialist to the test then give us a call. Our specialist will be able to identify the key risk factors in your home that are attracting pests.
What pesticides do you use? Is it different for indoor and outdoor treatments? How often does it need to be redone? Can pesticide residue get picked up on clothes and then transferred to other surfaces (like my furniture)?
Envirosafe uses a variety of different pesticides to ensure that your pest problem is resolved efficiently and completely. All pesticides in our inventory come with extensive instructions on safe, proper usage, and our specialists follow theses instructions precisely whenever they use them. Following safety instructions and providing you and your family with all of the safety information you need is always our first priority. This keeps your family, our specialists, and the environment safe from harm.
Our pesticides do not accumulate on clothes or transfer elsewhere as long as you follow the instructions we provide regarding safety and home reentry.
Our specialists have the necessary training to identify situations that will be found attractive to pests. They can inspect your home or business, find the problem areas, and recommend steps you can take to stop the spread of pests in the future.
I’m pregnant. Do I need to take special precautions to stay safe when you spray pesticides? Should I leave my home? If so, for how long?
Expectant mothers and parents with younger children are often especially concerned about safety when pest control treatments involve spraying pesticides. Treatments can be customised to reflect the specialised needs and sensitivities of your family members without compromising their effectiveness.
We always customise our treatments to ensure that we solve your pest problem without exposing any individuals, household animals, or property to danger. We use multiple formulations of insecticide, with each one being designed for a specific situation.
Our specialists will consult with you thoroughly before planning out any treatment, and you can work together with them to factor in special considerations like your pregnancy. In the unlikely event that a treatment makes it necessary for you to vacate the home, we’ll let you know how long you need to stay away and what you should do when you come back.
Although most liquid pesticides leave behind minimal smells that do not tend to linger for long, pregnant women often experience enhanced sensitivity to chemical scents. You may wish to leave your home for your own comfort until the odour dissipates completely. Your specialist can tell you exactly how long this will be. The same precaution may be wise for small children and infants. Note that distinctive chemical smells from pesticide formulas typically come from the solvents used rather than the active insecticide – most of those are completely odourless.
Bear in mind that our policy is to always tailor the treatment to the needs of your specific situation. We follow manufacturer’s protocols and industry safety standards at all times. In the vast majority of cases, treatment involves applying products in small volumes to relatively inaccessible areas that are seldom frequented by people or pets.
The lion’s share of the pest control business is identifying conditions that are likely to attract pests. Our specialists can help you find these conditions and show you what measures you can take to correct them, making your home less attractive to pests.
What’s the difference between residual and non-residual pesticide?
A residual pesticide is one that remains potent for some period after they’re applied. The period in question is influenced by a number of factors: formulation of the product (dust vs. liquid), surface material (brick, wood, dirt, etc.), and local conditions (dampness, grease, etc.). Non-residual insecticide, in contrast, has no ongoing effect after treatment is complete.
Pyrethrum, a natural botanical pesticide that’s used as the active component in a lot of non-residual insecticide formulations. The commercial-grade aerosol sprays you might use to kill crawling and flying insects are another example of non-residual insecticides. Another term for this form of pesticide is “contact insecticide.”
Our family has a newborn. Is it safe to spray for bugs, or should we leave for some time?
The final answer to this question will depend on the exact products your specialist decides to use, but it may be best to vacate your home for a few hours in order to avoid any possibility of harm.
Household pest control products are designed to work with low concentrations of active pesticides. They are further tailored for application to specific parts of the home, designed to minimise the amount of residue left behind.
The baits used to kill cockroaches and ants are either placed in inaccessible areas like cracks and crevices or deployed in bait stations which make them inaccessible to children.
Any insecticide intended for use on exposed surfaces has specific safety directions intended to minimise human risk. People, including children, should avoid contact with treated surfaces until they’re dry.
