COCKROACH PREPARATION & TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Pesticides and their application are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency of the Federal Government. NO pesticide may be applied in a food handling area unless all dishes, pots and foods have first been removed and covered. There is no exception to this law. Due to the nature of the treatments used and their effects upon different types of insects, complete control may not be achieved for two weeks following the initial service.
TIME TO STAY OUT
Prepare to remain out of the home on the day of the service for a minimum of four to six hours after the treatment has been completed. For elderly and infants, 6 to 8 hours is recommended.
PETS, ANIMALS, BIRDS, FISH, REPTILES, EXOTIC ANIMALS
All pets should be removed from the home on the day of the service and kept away from serviced areas for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours after treatment has been completed. Smaller pets and cats may be more at risk to reaction to a treatment and direct contact to all animals should be minimized for the first day of treatment. MSDS sheets are available to provide you and your veterinarian additional information on the product that will be used for treatment.
Remove all caged pets (birds, reptiles, hamsters, reptiles, etc.) prior to service. If fish habitat cannot be removed, seal fish tanks to avoid water contamination. Place wet towels over tanks, disconnect air pump and wrap the air pump in plastic. It is advised to check with fish dealer as some breeds may suffer from 4-6 without aeration. All birds, reptiles, exotic animals may return after 24 hours.
Prior to scheduled treatment, Clean the entire home with emphasis on areas of infestations.
Cover or remove all pet foods, children toys, dishes and small appliances that are openly located in treatment area.

After treatment, clean any eating surfaces such as kitchen tables, counters and exposed dishes.

After treatment, continue high cleaning level in and on all areas on regular basis to maintain effectiveness of treatment. Keep food material from trash, counters, etc.
Although the material used for this treatment is EPA approved and considered safe when applied as labeled, If ill, pregnant or have sensitivity and/or allergies to chemical odors, it is recommended that a physician be consulted prior to scheduling service. It is also recommended to consult the veterinarian concerning pet concerns and sensitivity prior to scheduling service.
It is normal to see continued roach activity for several days as the roaches are exposed to the treatment material and activity will decrease as our treatment takes effect.
