How Quickly Do Bugs Get Eliminated After A Pest Control Company Sprays? | San Joaquin Pest ControlAre you considering hiring a pest control company for an infestation in your home or business? You probably have a lot of questions. Luckily for you, you happened across the San Joaquin Pest Control blog, and we have loads of information for you here. When we spray peoples homes, for bed bugs, cockroaches, termites, whatever, we are often asked this questions: how quickly will the bugs die after we spray? Unfortunately, the answer isn’t always cut and dry. How long it will take for the bugs to become eradicated depends on what is being treated.


Sometimes, the results are immediate. Sometimes, they’re not. For example, in the case of rodents or cockroaches, the results will take a little longer, anywhere from a day or two, to two weeks.


Before a pest control company can spray, they will need to perform an inspection. This inspection will help determine your problem and how to solve it. The treatment will require us to seek out the pests nesting area, or where they originated before we spray.

Why should I hire a pest control company?


A professional pest control company will have the know-how and the tools to do the following:


  • Determine what is invading your home.


  • Determine the cause(s) of the infestation.


  • Come up with an affordable solution that works for you.


  • Treat the problem.


Most professional companies worth your money will also guarantee their work and be available for repeat treatments if needed.


What to do after treatment


After your home is treated for bugs, you will want to do a few things. The first thing is to make sure to keep your home clean and free from clutter. While most bugs don’t always come in because you’re a bad housekeeper, you don’t want to give them reasons, or places to hide. Clean up food and water spills as they happen, and remove clutter and trash from your home often.


Keep an eye out for leaky faucets or pipes. If you see any leaks, fix them immediately.


Don’t stress if you do see bugs after treatment, some of them, especially cockroaches will survive the treatment, or will take a week or two to die. The good thing is that the poison that is sprayed is also still working, so with time, your problem should be eliminated.


When it comes to determining how long it will take bugs to die after a pest control company sprays, that depends on what they’re treating for. That being said, you should always ask your pest control company how long they feel your particular infestation will die off, and what you can expect in the future. A professional pest control company will be able to tell you, in detail how long you’ll have to wait for the bugs in your house to die-off, and you can start enjoying a bug-free existence once again.
