Ocean County & Cape May County Pest Control Services

What to Expect After Treatment


RID’s service technician provided a general pest control service to your home today. This is a preventative service to control many crawling insects and rodents. Your technician inspected your home during the service and will discuss or write down their findings that will help your home remain pest free. Your technician also used a combination of spray, bait, and dust to control pest activity in and around your home based on the season and their inspection. Your certified technician took the proper steps to protect your home from pests and to observe what Ocean County and Cape May county pests are interested in your home to ensure proper control.

Expect to see more spiders for a while

After treatment, it will take about two weeks for treatment to fully take effect in and around your home. Once the insects expire, spiders, which are likely already in your home, will start looking for new hunting grounds. It can be expected for you to see more of them until they expire or move on. Spiders are typically found in and around homes that have high populations of insects that they use as their food source. Once our treatment takes full effect and the insect population at your property diminishes the spider population will disperse as well.

Follow instructions left by your RID technician

It’s important that you read and follow your technician’s instructions; examples are sealing openings, cutting back trees and bushes away from your home, cleaning gutters and other items that contribute to moisture problems or allowing your technician access to areas where pests maybe a problem. If you don’t understand what they are asking for, please call our office to review the additional steps that you can take to prevent pest populations.
