Top Pest Control related questions
A standard pest control service costs between $90-$178. The cost will depend on the size of your house, the extent of the infestation, and any follow up treatments needed.
Pest controllers assess and identify insects, rodents, and other pests in your home or business. They use chemicals or traps and integrated pest management to remove pests and reduce the likelihood of the problem recurring.
Usually, you’ll need to book pest control yearly to ensure your home is protected. But depending on the type of pests, your climate, and the extent of the infestation, your local pest control experts may recommend a follow up treatment after a couple of months.
Put away food, utensils, pet toys, and baby equipment. If possible, do a deep clean of floors and carpets, and move furniture away from walls your pest controller may need to access.
Depending on the treatment type, you may be able to remain at home or you may be required to stay away for a couple of hours. Your pest control specialist will let you know. They’ll also advise when you can clean surfaces again and how to air your house out after spraying.
For certain types of pest control tasks, you may need someone who has a specialist licence and also additional insurance. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.
