Q: Do I have to leave my home or move furniture for treatment?
A: In most cases you can be in the home while we are controlling pests. Our family safe application methods employ materials labeled for use while buildings are occupied. In most cases, you will not have to move anything. When application is necessary inside the home we use crack and crevice applications to reach the pests where they live and breed. Contact Pest-Ops today to discuss your pest control needs. Back to top
