Top 3 Pest Control Questions

Posted on

At AB-Con we get tons of calls and questions from all over South Jersey. We thought we would share the answers to the most common calls we receive:

 1) Do I have to leave my home when you treat?

Most treatments require you to stay off treated areas until the product has dried. In most cases, this is a 1-2 hour period. Since AB-Con only treats problem areas on the interior, you are able to stay in untreated parts of your home.

2) Why am I seeing more pest activity after a treatment?

Depending on the pesticide used, it is common to see an increase in activity following a pest control service. Some materials are actually designed to attract pests because they share it with others in their nest. The increase in activity will subside over time as more pests die from feeding on the bait.

Increased pest sightings are also common after a pest control service because the pests are exposed to a product that is an irritant to them.

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

Although State mandates don’t allow us to use the word “safe”, the products that AB-Con uses are extremely consumer friendly – which means: no odor, won’t harm grass or plants and don’t stain. They are considered mammal friendly and have the longest lasting residuals on the market.

More importantly, they are applied only by licensed professionals who follow the application directions precisely as described on the product labels.

If you have additional questions check out our Frequently Asked Questions, our AB-Con Bug Blog, and as always feel free to give us a call.
