How to Prepare for a Pest Control Visit

You can do six things to ensure a pest control visit is as effective as possible before one of our residential pest control technicians arrives at your home or business.

  1. Create access to hard-to-reach spots: Many pests like to hide and multiply in moist and dark spots, such as crawl spaces, attics and basements. Items blocking access to these places should be removed.

  2. Prepare the kitchen: Properly pack and store items beforehand to avoid contamination with pesticides. Food items should be placed in sealed containers and/or placed in the refrigerator. Other items, such as dishes, glasses, utensils and cookware, should be removed and placed in a safe area away from pesticides. You may also want to pull the refrigerator, stove and dishwasher away from the walls and cupboards.

  3. Move furniture: Some pests hide in the cracks and crevices along baseboards and door and window frames. Move any furniture that blocks access to those locations.

  4. Remove pets: Keep pets in a safe area away from the technicians and pesticides until it's safe to allow them back into the area.

  5. Prepare drawers: Many pests, such as cockroaches, like hiding in the cracks and crevices of kitchen drawers. Remove the items from the drawers, so they can be treated properly.

  6. Be home: Be there when a residential pest control specialist arrives to let them in and help move any items that are in their way.
