Following information received by email on October 10, 2019. Fumigation Date: 10/01/19 at 3:00 pm /Time of release of Vikane: 5:30 pm on 10/01/19 and 10:45 am on 10/02/19 Tear Down: 10/03/19/19 at 7:00 am On Tuesday October 1st, 2019 at (Time) x fumigated the structure located at (address), FL (zip) for DW Termites. The structure was fumigated by Mr. (name) # x. Before the fumigation took place, Mr. (name). confirmed with the owner that she had all pets in her possession and out of the structure, she signed an animal waiver, in addition to the OCC. At about at 7:00 pm Mr. (name). received a call from Homeowner stating that there was a possibility of one of the cats is under the tarp. (Name) contacted me immediately and I ordered (name) to go back to the property with Mr (name). to inspect the property. When arrived at the property, the Homeowner had already removed water snakes of one part of the house to try to see if in that way the cat could escape. Customer never entered the fumigated structure. After inspecting around the property exterior, (name) proceeded to enter the into the house with an SCBA, and he couldn't find anything inside the house or around it. This property has a crawl space so we are assuming if there was a cat inside it could be inside the crawl space. (name) did a visual inspection for a second time from the crawl space opening and he didn't see anything that appeared out of the ordinary. On Wednesday after doing another inspection of the property, (name) proceeded to close the house and shot the gas again. Today Thursday, October 3, 2019, after the down was completed, the (name) found a dead cat underneath a gas tank on the right side of the house. We contacted customer to notify her about the finding of the cat. Due to the location of the cat, underneath the gas tank, it was impossible to find it with the tarps on.
