  • FAQ

    • What if my pet ate a dead mouse that had consumed the rodenticide?
      Again, DON’T PANIC! There is not secondary poisoning. If your pet does consume any rodenticide directly, flush them out with peroxide until they vomit then call your vet and request an antidote of vitamin K1.
    • You just sprayed my house, why am I still seeing insects?

      The insects MUST come in contact with the chemical in order for it to be affective. Once they come in contact with the chemical, it can take up to a few hours before you will notice dead bugs.

    • What is the common time frame for the fall spray?
      September through mid-October, depending upon the year.
    • What is the common time frame for the summer spray?
      July through mid-August, depending upon the year.
    • What is the common time frame for the spring spray?
      May through mid-June, depending upon the year.
    • What is the minimum I should do to prevent common pests?
      If you are not in a position to hire a pest control professional, we recommend that you ensure that all cracks, crevices, and holes are sealed up on the exterior of your home. Check out our Facebook page for DIY pest control solutions.
    • If I am not home, what can I do to let the technician in?
      This can be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. We can either get a key, code, or we will purchase a lock box for you to keep an extra key. All information will remain confidential.
    • What if it rains right after my spray?
      With most chemicals as long as they dry, which takes about 20 minutes, before it rains there will be a minimal affect.
    • What is the difference between calling you vs. a “do it yourself” option?
      By calling Pfitzer Pest control, we can save you time and money while giving you peace of mind that the job will be done safely and correctly by our expertly trained technicians.
    • If I have a mouse in my house, what should I do?
      First of all, don’t panic! Pfitzer Pest Control guarantees to take care of the issue. We will look over the premises and locate possible entry points and of course eliminate them.
    • Do I need to spray inside of my house?
      Depending on the level of infestation and type of pests. For regular seasonal treatments (spiders, boxelders, cluster flies, crickets, asian lady beetles, etc.) interior spraying is usually not necessary. We do offer a winter check-up service, taking place early in the year which includes an interior service as well as a completed winter checklist to ensure your home is pest-proof for the upcoming warm season.
    • Is the chemical going to hurt my pets?
      No, again it is always recommended to keep pets away from fresh spray until dry. Any rodenticide is kept in lock and key bait stations to prevent children and pets from coming in contact with it.
    • Do I need to leave my house prior to service?

      Usually, no. Most commonly used chemicals are safe. Some chemicals may have a low odor; therefore, it is up to you if you want to leave until the chemical dries, which would be 30-60 minutes. It is always recommended to keep children and pets away from fresh spray until dry.
