    Question about what food needs to be bagged. I know cans and unopened glass jars are fine to NOT be bagged. Anything in cardboard needs to be bagged.
    1) What about unopened plastic containers, such as mustard or other items that come in plastic containers?
    2) What about boxes of almond milk or other nut milk? I’m not sure what those containers are made from, whether it’s considered cardboard or plastic.
    3) What about bags of chips and/or popcorn, or other snack foods in bags? Not sure if these are considered foil or plastic, but do they have to be bagged?

    Thank you,
    Michelle

      Unopened plastic containers are okay to leave out if the factory seal is in tact. Boxed milk does need to be double bagged regardless if it has ever been opened or not. Chips and/or popcorn, or other snack foods must also be double bagged.

    I’m here for the August 10th 6pm Webinar. There is no link to a live webinar. Is it not a live webinar for us? I only can access pre-recorded webinar. But what if I have a lot of questions not answered and also how can I access the files in the prerecorded webinar?

        So, Should I just watch the “Webinar Recorded” video? I guess it’s from the first session and there wasn’t a second session? I don’t think I want to post all of my questions here for privacy reasons. Is there another option? Thanks.

    Are the patios at Colina De La Costa going to be under the tent?

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Yes, while the fumigators will make every effort to exclude as much of the patios as possible, the layout of your buildings will most likely require for the tents to encompass the patios as well.

        So plants that are physically planted in the ground on my patio will most likely be killed? The last time this community was fumigated they did not tent the patios. Why this time?

        • Ozzie Camacho

          Although we can’t speak for the past fumigation since we don’t know product what used, in most cases it’s necessary to cover the patios to achieve a proper seal of the tent in order to ensure no leakage during the fumigation.

    Before I purchased this unit, the prior owner closed up the door to the crawl space underneath my unit. What issues is that going to cause? I would prefer you not cut holes in the wall of my garage.

      The crawl spaces will be treated as part of the building foundation during fumigation. The fumigators will not cut holes in the garage.

    Why do you have to inspect my safe and why do I have to leave it open? I don’t keep food in there. Only valuables, which is why I own a safe. So strangers in my house can’t steal them.

    • Ozzie Camacho

      Safes are also commonly used to store medication. By law, they have to be inspected. You can choose to either leave it open during the fumigation, or be present for the inspection early in the morning on fumigation day. You can then lock it up once it has been seen checked out and verified that no unbagged food or medicine is present.

    I have critically endangered tortoises as pets in my unit. I cannot take even the slightest risk of doing anything that might harm them. They’re kept in a custom wooden enclosure. Will there be residual poison that stays in the wood of their habitat?

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Be sure to remove your pets before the fumigation. You can leave the wooden enclosure if you choose. There will be no residual fumigant on the enclosure or on anything else in the home after the fumigation.

    Is it okay to leave the following items inside the unit?
    1) Fire Extinguishers, 2) Rubbing Alcohol and Hydrogen Peroxide, 3) Nail Polish Remover (Acetone), 4) Cleaning Supplies that contain Liquid Chemicals such as Windex and Mr. Clean, 5) Bleach, and 6) Miscellaneous household chemicals not mentioned previously. ??

    Also, what about empty bottles that have corks and are on display in curio cabinet? Do the corks need to be removed so gas does not get trapped inside the bottles? Or any lids on other kinds of showy containers used for decorative purposes inside the home?

      Hey Stuart. There are no specific ties that need to be used when closing up the bags. You can use tape or rubber bands as you please, but we do not supply either.
