The application of commercially registered insecticide Spray to exterminate Caterpillars.

First and foremost, we listen to your concerns and questions. Next, we inspect the structure and spaces thoroughly and devise a strategy that commonly involve deploying of commercially registered pesticides to exterminate Caterpillars.

Insecticide Spray: To exterminate Caterpillars successfully we employ contact based insecticide spray. These pesticides are commercially registered with the ministry of the environment, and can only be deployed by a licensed exterminator.

The areas of infestation must be cleared out of litter and debris and cleaned before the technician arrives for the application. All residents and pets must vacate for the duration of treatment plus two hours before returning. The insecticide spray is applied in key areas where the Caterpillars may nest or travel in search for food. Typically, it takes 3 to 5 weeks for entire population of Caterpillars to die off.

Expected Results:

When the Caterpillars comes into contact with the treated surfaces, the pest gets the insecticide on parts of its body, as well, gradually the pesticide reaches into and invades the pest’s nesting environment. The Caterpillars expire after some time having been affected by the presence of the active ingredient of the insecticide in the Caterpillars’s physiology.


Our standard service includes a 7 months limited warranty. It may takes between 3 to 5 weeks for entire of the Caterpillars infestation to die off. If the infestation does not completely die off or if the Caterpillars infestation revives, then we deliver a second application free of cost. In rare instances where a 3rd application visit is requested within 7 months, it is considered an exceptional situation and a fee of 28% is charged for the service.
