Louisiana Pest Control's Most Frequently Asked Questions

Pest Control FAQ Background

General Pest Control FAQs

An Accu-Pest Exterminating professional not only has the latest and most effective products, but also the education and knowledge to get the job done right. They know the habits, life cycles, food preferences, and harborage areas of the pest he/she is treating. We can tell the difference between the many insects that exist in South Louisiana and know that each has its own prescribed methods of control. Accu-Pest professionals knows how to handle products safely, when and where to apply them, and how much application is necessary.

A thorough inspection can spot possible problems before they become serious and therefore limit the amount of products that need to be applied. We also know many non-toxic ways of managing an insect infestation including habitat modification, exclusion techniques, the use of growth regulators and the proper use of baits.

Results will vary according to the type of pest, treatment methods and products used. For example, immediate results can be seen when a yellow jacket nest is removed or treated with a liquid pesticide. However, when using baits for ants, rodents the process takes longer since the pests have to ingest the product for it to be effective. Your inspector and technician will outline what your expectations for your particular problem should be.

A regularly scheduled pest service will stop pests before they become a problem. It allows our technicians to watch for and spot possible signs of pest activity and act immediately to eliminate any threat. A preventative, pro-active approach to managing pests will keep your home and family safe from annoying and potentially harmful pests.

Pests can pose a variety of threats to your family or home including food-borne illnesses like E. coli and salmonella are transmitted to food by contact with rodents and cockroaches; stinging insect, fire ant and bed bug bites; and asthmatic allergic reactions to cockroaches are some of the health threats pests present. Termites, nuisance birds and wildlife, and rodents can also threaten your home’s structural integrity.

Our #1 priority is to ensure the safety of your children and pets. Inside applications normally require no special actions or precautions. We use low impact materials and do not apply large quantities of products in your home.

No. Most treatments (regular preventive pest control visits) do not require you to leave OR require you to stay home.  It’s entirely up to you.  The only requirement on an inside treatment is to make sure we have access to get inside.
