FAQ

How do I get rid of fleas?

It’s best to be proactive, and deal with fleas prior to complete infestation. Either way, start by cleaning all surfaces where fleas have been. Remove all pets from the environs that may be infected. Four to six hours after cleaning, apply a combination of liquid pesticide and growth inhibitors. This should kill existing adults, and stop the larvae from maturing.

How do I get rid of rats?

First, you must know where they reside. Subsequently, you can set traps or place bait in the surrounding area. Don’t use glue traps, as they are inhumane. Another method is to exclude the rats. This entails finding and blocking the entrances to the den, making it difficult for rats to enter, forcing them to new environs outside of the home.

How do I get rid of cockroaches?

There are multiple ways to deal with a cockroach infestation. Avoid factors which attract them: unclean surfaces, high room temperature and still water puddles. It is advisable to repair holes and cracks by which they can enter. If all else fails, call a pest control specialist.

Do cockroaches bite?

Yes, they do. However, human flesh is not a dietary necessity. While uncommon, it does happen in times of ‘desperation’. Cockroaches will only bite humans if their population begins to exceed their existing food supplies.
