Frequently Asked Questions
Are the pesticides and other materials you use safe?
Pesticides are by definition poisonous. Our training, certifications, use of alternative and natural treatments, and expertise are used to provide the safest and most effective approach to solving each pest problem. Sunflower Pest practices IPM (Integrated Pest Management), an approach focusing on reduced pesticide use and increased prevention, habitat alteration and other non-chemical methods to control pests, which translates into fewer and less toxic pesticides, less potential for chemical exposure, and an unapproachable level of safety and security for your families, pets, friends and all others that may enter your home.
Do pesticides cause cancer?
No. None of the currently registered pesticides have carcinogenic effects. Testing performed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) years prior to the release of each pesticide provide a high level of safety.
How long does each pest control treatment last?
Treatment longevity is a combination of the particular pest in question, products used, environmental conditions, and the particular circumstances of each pest issue.
I am comparing a do-it-yourself pest project versus hiring a professional, why should I hire you?
There are a few good reasons to hire a professional. Do-it-yourself pest control is a risk. A professional can identify a particular species of pest and provide a directed approach for control. Mis-identification and misdirected control only serve as a waste of time and money. Expertise may also help solve a pest control issue without pesticides. In addition, most if not all pest control companies offer a 100% guarantee and free return service. This guarantee provides a more effective and economical approach.
