Safe treatments for pets and humans, no matter their size

Our treatments are safe for you, your family and your pets.  Most of our treatments use synthetic pyrethroids, which are based on natural pyrethrums found in the chrysanthemum daisy. They are UV and acid resistant, so they remain effective for longer. 

Synthetic Pyrethroids (SP) not only kill insects after they come into contact with a treated surface, but they will also deter them from even entering your home.

All treatments are applied and at a level that won’t affect mammals.

These chemicals have been proven safe in sensitive situations over several decades. They were approved of by the Health Department, Pesticides Board and Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry before being released for use in the commercial and domestic pest control markets.

Considered, informed pest control

What do you have to do?

Aftercare for internal treatments can involve, for example:

  • Opening windows and doors to allow your home to air for about 15 minutes.
  • Wiping down all food preparation surfaces using rubber gloves while being careful not to rub your eyes.

Preparation can involve, for example:

  • Covering or putting away exposed foods like fruit bowls, etc.
  • Putting clean dishes, tea towels and paper towels away.

Preparation & Aftercare

For external treatments only, no preparation is required.

For internal treatments the following preparations need to be made:

  • Cover or put away exposed foods like fruit bowls, etc.
  • Put clean dishes, tea towels and paper towels away. It’s OK to leave dishes out if they’re going to be washed. 
  • Put away toothbrushes, towels and toilet paper.
  • Cover fish tanks and turn the pump off.
  • Ensure pet food is covered or put away.
  • Pull the duvet up to cover all pillows on the bed and cover any cots.
  • You will need to vacate your home for a minimum of 4 hours from the time our pest exterminator has completed the treatment.

Aftercare for internal treatments:

  • On return, enter your home and open windows and doors and allow to air for 10mins.
  • Wipe down all food preparation surfaces. We recommend using rubber gloves while doing this and being conscious of not rubbing your eyes until the gloves are removed.

Aftercare for external treatments:

  • Leave spider webs in place for 5 days then remove with a brush.

Our internal treatments use synthetic pyrethroids (which are based on natural pyrethrums). The products we use have been proven safe in sensitive situations over several decades. All treatments are professionally applied and are at a level that are very safe for humans and pets. All products are readily metabolized. If you do come into contact with the treatment it will just pass straight through you and not build up in your body over time.
