What does a pest control service include?
Every pest control service is designed to protect your home and your health. But the specific inclusions and processes depend on the type of pest control you need:
Insect pest control
Get pest control services near you to deal with bed bugs, cockroach control, flea control, flying insects, and spiders in and around your home. They’ll assess the situation and confirm your infestation before using the right chemicals and treatments for the insect species and climate.
Termite inspection and treatment
Termites or white ants can cause thousands of dollars in damage if left untreated, affecting the structure and resale value of your property. Fortunately, protecting your home is easy, with regular termite inspections and barrier treatments on areas of your home that are most vulnerable (like timber structures, underneath your house, and woody areas of your garden). Use a licensed local termite inspector and pest controller near you to ensure their work meets Australian safety standards. You can request a certificate to ensure the quality of work once they’re done.
A professional possum removal expert will see that your resident possums are relocated safely and humanely. They may climb into your roof cavity to set a trap, capture the possum(s), and relocate them a short distance from your home. Then they’ll seal up any entry and exit points so no one else moves in!
Wasp nest removal
Found a wasp or bee nest in your home or backyard? Don’t be remove it yourself - you might aggravate the occupants and even damage your property in the process. A get a wasp nest removal expert for a safe, quick, and easy job. They’ll bring the right tools, chemicals, and protective equipment to destroy wasps and relocate bees so you can relax without worrying about stings.
Mice and rats multiply quickly, damage wiring and furniture, and cause health issues from their droppings. A local pest exterminator will identify where they are living, then use baits and traps to quickly get rid of them. Plus, they’ll advise you on the best way to keep rodents away in future.
Pre-purchase pest inspection
Before you buy any property, it’s a good idea to hire a professional pest controller nearby to check for potential pest issues. Your local pest control experts will thoroughly inspect any accessible areas of the property for signs of termites, borers, timber decay, and environmental factors that could encourage pests. They’ll check inside the roof and underneath the house (if it’s raised), as well as fences and sheds. At the end of the inspection, which can take around 2 hours, you’ll get a detailed house pest control report with photos and information on the areas inspected, plus any pest issues or damage.
