Q: Can I pay with a credit card/debit card?
A: Not at this time. Cash or check only.
Q: Will the spray hurt my pets?
A: Most of the pesticides we use would have to be ingested in large quantities to cause harm. Because the chemicals are diluted and sprayed as a very thin film there is very little risk to mammals or birds. Once a sprayed chemical is dried it is virtually harmless to vertebrates.
Q: Will your spray harm beneficial insects?
A: Some beneficial insects are protected by law and spraying can only be done when these insects (honeybees) will not be harmed. The property owner must weigh in their mind the cost vs benefits of pest control versus potential beneficial insect loss. In most cases the pest problem is unacceptable (fleas for example) and the cost if justifiable.
