Frequently Asked Questions

Are your pest control products safe?

Yes, safety is our top priority. The pest control industry is highly regulated, and each product must go through rigorous testing. All products that we use are approved and safe around families, pets, and the environment. We operate under Ministry of Environment licensing, and all our technicians are fully trained and certified with many years of experience. You can feel peace of mind knowing that we always put safety first.

Why should I hire a professional pest control service instead of just doing it myself?

​It is possible to do your own pest control, but unqualified application of pesticides will often lead to ineffective results. In order to get optimal outcomes, knowledge and training is required. Our technicians know where pests like to hide, they can accurately identify what pest is causing the problem, they know the appropriate pesticides and application rates needed, and they understand preventive measures that will keep pests from coming back. In short, professional pest technicians have more experience, are highly trained, and have access to better products, which will nearly always produce better results.

Do I need to leave my home during treatments?

​Most standard pest control treatments no longer require clients to leave their homes and involve little to no disruption in their daily schedule. If it would be advisable to leave during specific treatments, your technician will let you know so that you can arrange your schedule. Businesses typically prefer to have treatments done after business hours for convenience.

Do you guarantee your work?

Absolutely! We are so confident in our ability to take care of any pest that is bothering you that we offer a 100% money back guarantee. Our “No Questions Asked” policy means that if you are not completely satisfied, we will refund your money. Our industry leading pest control and extermination services will not disappoint.

Why should I sign up for regular treatments even if I’m not seeing any pests?

On-going service visits are important in order to keep your home pest free. The reason you are not seeing pests is because the treatments are working. Regular maintenance is required in order to continue to prevent insects, rodents, and other pests from coming back.

What happens if I have a pest problem between regular service visits?

If a pest problem arises, all you have to do is call! We will respond as soon as possible and return to your home or business to take care of the problem. We have built our business and reputation around excellent service and customer satisfaction.

If my home was recently treated, why am I still seeing pest activity?

Control of pests is not always immediate and depends on the treatment that was provided. It takes time for pests to come in contact with the pesticide and then for the babies to hatch and also contact it. Many of our pesticides are residuals, which means that they will continue to work for a long time after they are applied. It could take several weeks to achieve complete knockdown, but you should start to see improvements very quickly. Our knowledgeable technicians will answer your questions and provide information that will be useful in making sure that the pests are completely eliminated.

What dangers do pests pose?

​There are many problems that pests can pose, depending on the species. Aside from being nuisances, many pests, especially rodents, can contaminate food and spread bacteria and illnesses like salmonella and e-coli. Roaches are also known for causing allergies and exacerbating asthma in susceptible groups. Stings or bites can be a consequence of pests like bed bugs, mosquitoes, wasps, bees, and fire ants. The structural integrity of your home may also be compromised by termites, carpenter ants, and rodents. This is not a comprehensive list, but it is easy to see that pests need to be taken care of as quickly as possible. GTA Toronto Pest Control is your best bet!
