A lot of what is needed depends on what type of pest you are looking to get rid of. The first thing to know now is that these are the professionals and they will remove any of the unwanted critters using a variety of techniques. The first usually involves fumigating the place so that everything unwanted gets killed. Naturally you are not there when this happens and nor will the pest controllers. The whole house is covered in a tent and the fungal agent added. It does take some time.

The other way is to enter the house and spray everything that needs spraying with a biological agent. In all cases these are only toxic to the bugs and not to you and your animals. However if you are concerned then it is wise for the pets to be out of the house when it happens. They will thank you for the lack of bugs when they return.

Unfortunately insecticides and rodenticides may well be needed. This will spell the end for the creatures so be prepared that they won’t make it.
