What is pest control?
Pest control is the management or regulation of a species classified as a pest. Pests can be detrimental to both the structural integrity of a building and a persons health and well being. Controlling pests is done using a range of chemicals and other strategies which have been proven to eliminate the infestation.
How often do I need pest control?
A yearly inspection is the ideal way to detect, treat and deter pests from taking destroying your home. However, if you think you have a very serious pest problem right now, don’t wait. Give us a call us immediately so we can get our professionally trained staff onsite in the shortest possible time.
Do I need to prepare for pest treatment?
We will let you know whether you will need to prepare because each case is different. Nonetheless, you may be asked to do some few things, depending on whether we are working outside or inside or both.
What is the cost of pest treatment?
This will depend on the type of pests, how much damage the pests have caused and how long they’ve inhabited your property. You should ask for a preliminary assessment of the problem so you can then receive a written or verbal quote. Most companies have a minimum call out fee and hourly rates start at around $75.
Can I stay on the property while you are treating pests?
Whether you stay on site while we get to work is simply a matter of the pest type we are treating, the kind of treatment we are applying and how we are doing that. We advise that you avoid going near the areas we have sprayed till the spay has dried up or for a couple of hours as an extra precaution.
Are my pets safe?
The treatments and sprays Pro Pest Control Brisbane uses don’t affect pets; but your pest control consultant will discuss your individual case with you in detail. The chemicals we use of are certified for safe use public places, hospitals and schools. We do recommend some precautions depending on the type or pest or termite problem you have.
Why would I need a pest inspection?
Most homes have their own fair share of irritating pests. Not only can these critters contribute to allergies and leave behind toxic mess, they can potentially affect the structure of your property. If you have an older home which hasn’t had an inspection for over 12 months we would recommend getting one just to be safe.
What treatments are used for termites?
The most common treatments for termites are termiticides. Termite baits are also used in place of termiticides.
How can I prevent termites?
You can prevent termites by using our highly efficient termite repellents that deter termites from coming to your house.
