Pest Control Questions – FAQs & Answers for Your Pest Management

We want to ensure that our residential and commercial clients like you are fully informed about pest control. That’s why we provide as much information as is needed to support your pest control efforts. 

Being a licensed pest control company in Jamaica for over eight years, we have gotten a lot of questions and worked on various pest management projects (large and small). Here are a few frequently asked questions about our pest control service. If you’re not seeing an answer to your question, don’t hesitate to reach out. You can send us a message using our contact form here, email us at, or call us at 1-876-799-3732 | 1-876-803-1377.

We take the time to investigate the pest issue affecting your property. This means a thorough inspection inside and out to identify the source of the issue and any contributing factors.

We’ll provide a detailed report outlining the pest problems found and the recommended pest control actions to treat the issues. Our team can handle any issues relating to rats, mice, termites, cockroaches, ants, flies, mosquitoes, wasps, bees, fleas, spiders, and many more insects.

You’ll also get a detailed breakdown of any chemical and/or mechanical treatment recommendations we make so you know how we will handle your pest problem. We also offer environmentally friendly options to help alleviate pest problems, where possible.

It depends. This is impacted by the nature of the issue, the size and design of the building, and several other environmental factors. Therefore, pest treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a full day, depending on the severity and complexity of the pest issue. 

We will provide you with an estimate of the timeframe once we have conducted our pest control inspection.

Depending on the type of treatment, you can see positive results in as little as two (2) days. 

You may, however, see a little increase in pest activity. Not to worry. This is a good sign. This means that the pest control treatment we administered is working. The treatment has disrupted their normal patterns and habits, and they are seeking new habitats and breeding areas. This will not happen because at this time they have pesticides all over them, and they will die within a matter of days. 

Within a week or two, you should see a marked difference in the pests. If not, give us a call and we’ll revisit to see if another round of treatment is needed.

Pest control is the process of employing various methods (mechanical and chemical) to remove unwanted insects and other pests from your property. When done right, it follows Integrated Pest Management Principles on the inspection, treatment, management, and control of pests. 

With a quality pest control service such as RYMO, you also get treatments that last. Also, you should expect to get a guarantee on your pest control service.

Definitely. There is a major difference between pest control and pest prevention. If you get a handle on your prevention plan, then you won’t need to engage in pest control (only maintenance) because you will have everything properly managed. 

Preventative pest control is available for both residential and commercial properties. Therefore, if you want to keep your home or business pest-free, then the best time to start is now with an inspection and pest control maintenance plan.

Regular maintenance on a consistent basis will prevent pests from becoming major issues. Simply contact RYMO Pest Control and we will arrange a pest control and maintenance plan based on your property and environment to prevent pest infestations. This is available for both residential and commercial properties.

The saying prevention is better than cure is very apt for such a situation. When you proactively schedule pest maintenance services, you prevent pests from becoming an issue. 

As a commercial entity, regularly scheduled pest control services are often a requirement. So, you need to engage a reliable pest controller based on a schedule that suits your business and environment for targeted commercial pest control services. 

For residential pest control services, you too can benefit from keeping your home pest-free with regularly scheduled services.

9/10 times, you are treating the symptom and not the problem. The other 10% is people making the situation worse by not using the right chemicals. Plus, the recommended treatments are not available over the counter. The required treatments also require a trained and licensed professional to apply. 

Apart from the issues that could arise from attempting to DIY your pest control, 

With a licensed pest control company such as RYMO, you can get:

  • a dedicated technician ready to solve your pest issues
  • a clear and comprehensive process to eliminate pests and maintain a pest-free environment 
  • a safe, pest-free space to continue enjoying your life with friends and family
