  • 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 the property whilst pest control treatments are being applied?

    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 a general pest treatment spray?

    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.
