Most frequent questions and answers
Whether you are a householder or represent a school, childcare centre or residential block, there is a chance you will require a pest controller.
A licensed pest controller is trained in a lot more than just spraying for spiders. To be licensed you must pass a TAFE standard course including detailed modules in pest identification, breeding habits and biology.
Our qualifications provide the knowledge and ability to use a range of methods and products safely to stop pest activity and reduce the potential of future infestations.
Generally, a yearly inspection for termites and other pests is the best way to find termites before they do a large amount of damage.
Depending on the type of pest and conditions regular treatments may be required.
Queens can lay thousands of eggs a day, so it is not unheard of to have well over 60,000 termites in a single colony in less than a year. A mature queen lives between 25 to 60 years, constantly laying new eggs to increase the size of her colony. So, in twenty-five years, the colony could grow to around 1.5 million termites.
When treating the outside of the home, especially when spraying for spiders etc, we apply a film of insecticide spray – usually Bi-Flex Aqua – against the exterior wall surfaces. The product dries within 10 – 15 minutes, so if it rains later that day it won’t affect the treatment.
