Important Information Concerning Your Pest Management Program

Health and Safety Precautions to be observed during and after pest management treatment

1. You must advise us of any pets or of any personal or family/staff allergies, or other health concerns.
2. Any persons who may be particularly sensitive, or who may suffer from allergic reactions, should, as a matter of precaution, remain out of the premises for a period of twenty-four (24) hours and not return until after the premises have been fully ventilated. Leave any air-conditioners on ‘vent mode’ (so they circulate outside air into the building) for a period of at least four (4) hours after the treatment or after re-occupying.
3. Should you suspect anyone has come into contact with a treated area and has been affected in any way contact the Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26 and have this notice with you.
4. You must cover all food items and all food utensils prior to a treatment, or as directed.
5. You must remove or protect any people, animals, birds or fish during the treatment period. All pets/animals should be kept away from treated areas until dry and any odour has cleared.
6. You must avoid contact with treated surfaces until the insecticide has dried. This could take one (1) to twenty-four (24) hours in some cases.
7. On external treatments close all doors and windows during the treatment and keep closed until the odour has cleared. This could take one (1) to twenty-four (24) hours in some cases. This is done to avoid any odour entering the building.
8. When gaining access to, or working in the roof void and/or subfloor areas, overalls and gloves and a respirator should be worn to avoid contact with any insecticidal products. The overalls and gloves should be washed immediately and separate from other washing or disposed of as soon as practicable.
