Pest Control Techniques

Here we explain the details of proven methods for pest removal and control

What Pest Control Chemicials Are Used?

The type of pest control chemicals we utilise is determined by the pests we’re dealing with. All of the chemicals we employ, on the other hand, are completely safe for humans and pets.

The most efficient way to control rodents is to use bait that is laced with rodenticides and kept in a tamper-resistant bait station. Today, a range of rodenticides that operate as a single dose anticoagulant are accessible. Rodent traps may also be required, depending on the situation.

Crawling insect pest control can take several forms, including dilatable pesticides, oil-based residual pesticides, non-residual pesticides, and powder. The choice of pesticides varies depending on the situation and the pest, but all chemicals used have been certified by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency, or PMRA.


To provide a long-lasting effect, powders are frequently utilised in hard-to-reach locations such as cracks and fissures. To be effective, the powders must be kept free of dirt and humidity. Powders can also be used as a flushing agent.

Non-residual insecticides based on oil are mostly employed to flush out pests that may be hidden in otherwise inaccessible regions of a structure. Cockroaches, bed bugs, centipedes, ants, flying insects, spiders, and other pests are targeted using dilatable insecticides that are combined with water before being employed.


Dosing for each chemical we use varies and is determined by the product as well as PMRA regulations. Chemicals designed to be mixed with water come in highly concentrated forms with various formulations such as Soluble Concentrates and Emulsifiable Concentrates, among others.

Only licenced, trained, insured, and bonded pest control firms, such as Pesticon, can acquire and apply commercial grade chemicals. An experienced and qualified exterminator uses the pesticides with caution. Pesticon also guarantees that the proper post-pest treatment procedures are followed to ensure the eradication process’s continued safety and effectiveness.

Do We Need Pest Control Every Month?

Businesses in the food service or manufacturing industries require pest control on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis to maintain a clean and sanitary workplace. We also urge that warehouses, greenhouses, and other commercial and industrial sites get pest control on a regular basis.

For most industrial and commercial enterprises, pest problems are inescapable, which is why proactive pest management strategies are critical. To achieve effective pest control, we employ a variety of outdoor and interior pest management solutions. For example, to ensure that facilities are free of mice and rats, we may employ external bait stations.


For residential pest control, we provide a home protection plan. The package keeps households secure against a range of pests throughout the year. More information is available here.

When the pest control work is finished, how long do you have to stay out of your house?

Every form of pest control treatment does not necessitate the evacuation of the premises. For cockroaches, we might use dust (powder) and gel, dust and bait for ants, and baiting for rodents, for example (mice and rats). These operations do not necessitate extended stays away from home. The only precaution is to stay away from the area while pest elimination is taking place.


It is best to leave the premises for up to 6 hours if we are employing chemicals to eliminate flying and crawling insects. Before re-entering the premises, keep the property thoroughly aired by opening doors and windows for 10-15 minutes.

How To Control Insects in My House?

Controlling insects in your house begins with habitat modification. You can, for example, alter the humidity in your home and use caulking and sealing to close off pest-infested areas. However, in the vast majority of cases, professional extermination will be required.


Each pest has its unique method of attacking your home:

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs will follow you home from an infested location such as a motel, hotel, or someone else’s home.


Cockroaches frequently follow you home from the supermarket and hide in cardboard boxes. They may also infest your property as a result of any shared utilities you have with a neighbour. Because you share walls in your apartment, condo, townhome, or semi-detached home, your neighbor’s cockroach problem quickly becomes yours.


Rodents usually get access to your home through air vents, central vacuuming pipes, air conditioning pipes, and a variety of other pipes. If you leave the front door, garage door, or back door open by accident, you’ll be invaded.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants build their nests in window frames and door frames, as well as behind plumbing pipes where moisture and humidity are high. You may be able to solve the problem by replacing the old window or door frames in some circumstances. Carpenter ants may also find their way into your kitchen in quest of food.

Pharaoh Ants

They are attracted to moisture and a good food source in the same way that all other ants are. You can get rid of pharaoh ants by removing bread crumbs, maple syrup drips, and other sources of food, but expert eradication can help you get rid of them faster.
