  • What is Pest Control?

    Pest Control is the management and control of a species classified as a Pest. Pests can range from those that are classified to be detrimental to the integrity of structures/dwellings thru to pests that carry diseases and can affect the health of our families and pests. As a licensed pest control company, we will inspect and identify the pest issue, offer a treatment that is both safe and effective for everyone in the home or business.

  • What does pest control cost?

    Depending on the pest issue our treatments start at $155, and we offer a return policy guarantee on all services.

  • How often should I get Pest Control done?

    In most cases we recommend every 12 months.

  • Do I have to leave during the treatments?

    We always recommend everyone leave during chemical treatments to keep people safe (all the products we use are registered and approved for use in hospitals, nursing homes, public places etc). We recommend you return once its dry.
    *If you cannot leave that’s ok, we can work around that.

  • What can we do to prepare for the treatment?

    Vacuum and mop before the treatment as it’s not recommended to do so for 7 days after to allow the treatment to be effective. Where possible make skirting boards accessible and make sure no clothes are on the clothes line. We’ll take care of the rest.

  • How often should I have my house inspected for Termites?

    Every 12 months.

  • How do you get rid of Termites?

    We have several methods depending on the species of termites and where they are located/active.

I would recommend them to anyone. They are thorough, honest and do the right job. They are informative, they give you all the information that you could possibly need. And they always, always communicate with me well whether it is via email or text.

From my wife's perspective, as a woman, they were very respectful and informative. They fill her in on everything and don’t treat her like "well you’re just a woman, who cares, and ring me". They leave her with all the information verbally and she tells me when I come home from work. It’s a major plus.


I just had a termite chemical barrier put in place. Shane called around promptly to assess the site and quote. He kept me informed on when he could do the job and what was involved and arrived on time to get it done. Price was good and I found Shane to be very professional, friendly and courteous.
