Pest Control Sydney

Interview With George From Redline Pest Control

Pest Control Interview

 

 

When did you become interested in pest control?

I became interested in pest control when I had an outbreak of German cockroaches in my house, I had called a pest controller and when he had turned up I was asking his questions of what his day to day tasks were. Once he left I looked into how I could get into pest control and from that day on I fell in love with helping my customers get rid of their pest and termites.

What makes your day interesting?

Defiantly the customers I meet, I have met some interesting people who makes me laugh with stories they have told me.  I remember one customer who told me that he had a mouse that he couldn’t catch and was really frustrated, he fell asleep on the lounge with chocolate next to him and when he woke up the mouse was eating the chocolate and the mouse had scared him.

What motivates you?

My motivation is helping my customers with their pest and termite issues that they have.

What sets you apart from other pest controllers?

I will always listen to the customer’s needs and wants and go out of my way to make sure that the customer is informed on what pest treatment they are having and how to avoid an infestation occurring, providing the customer with support during and after the treatment has been carried out.

Who is your targeted audience?

I would say that my targeted audience is both residential and commercial property market.

What is the most common complaint you hear from customers?

I always hear horror stories from customers who have had pest controllers come in and will spray a few areas and will be in and out within 15 minutes and they still have pest crawling around their home or place of business.

What are three positive things a customer would say about your work ethics?

My customers will say that I am honest, reliable and I get the job done right the first time.

What makes a good pest technician and how do we know that we are getting the treatment that we pay for?

 

Yes sure there are companies in the pest industry who will do almost anything to get you to go with them but what are they offering and will they fix the issue at hand.

 

Don’t be scared or intimidated when it comes to choosing the right pest controller. What I always recommend is jump on to Google and see what reviews are being posted about the company that you have in mind in Pest Control Sydney.

 

Redline Pest Control goes above and beyond to make sure each client is informed of how the treatment works, the threshold of pest which is at the clients home or business and will eliminate any pest which you may have.

 

It is unfortunate that there is several pop up companies who will advertise very cheap then will either disappear, provide no warranty or even worse they will not fix your pest issue forcing you to call another company and lay out more of your hard earned money.

 

Redline Pest Control is Sydney’s leading pest control company offering clients a 6 month warranty on most pest  services they provide.

So what sets Redline Pest Control apart from other pest control companies?

 

Each technician which is employed by Redline Pest Control goes through extensive training workshops not only to help them understand the biology of pest and their thresholds but to listen to what the client is saying in regards to their pest issue. (We have heard many horror stories where pest technicians have gone into client’s homes or businesses and not listen to what was the issue at hand and done a completely different treatment).

 

Field technicians are not the only one who goes through training, each staff member in the office will also commence training on pest and termites. Imagine if you call a company and the office admins have no idea what you are talking about, you will be very disappointed and will call the next person which is listed in Google.

 

Redline Pest Control will always have a solution for any pest that arises in your home whether we advise you on how you can eliminate them on your own or by recommending a treatment that is right for your pest issues. (I don’t know of many companies that will let you know that there is a do it yourself treatment).

 

A good pest control company in Sydney will always make themselves available to their clients by providing an after hours phone number for any questions they may have of their past service, upcoming service or emergencies.

What are some prevention tips that you can do around your home or business?

 

  • Flyscreens that have holes or not on properly on will need to be replace or fixed.
  • All doors in and around your home or business to be sealed so no insects can gain entry.
  • Take out the rubbish each night that way no pest will have a breeding ground.
  • Any trees or plants that is in direct contact with your home will need to be pruned.
  • Any cracks or crevices in and around your home must be sealed.
  • Clean gutters from any twigs and leaves.
  • Make sure that any gutter drain is diverted away from your home as this will attract termites.
  • Subfloors and roof voids are to be well ventilated.
  • Water and food bowls for pets to be put away once finished.
  • Check to see if you have any plumbing leaks in or round your home.
  • Seal all food in air tight containers or in your fridge.

Redline Pest Control not only treats pest but advises our commercial clients on the different methods on how they can eradicate pest on their own by simply following our advice.

 

Sometimes all that needs to be done is block entry points so pest can’t gain entry or have  simple cleaning procedure put in place once the commercial premises closes for the day.

Redline Pest Control has been hearing a lot of horror stories from our commercial clients who had previously used a different pest control company.

With one of our commercial clients their previous pest control company had used coopex dust in the kitchen area along the skirting boards near where the cooking elements were and on top of the kitchen counters which could potentially killed their customers.

 

Needless to say that this commercial client was still seeing a severe infestation of German cockroaches.

What does your commercial food business say about you?

 

Whether you are a take away shop, restaurant or café food hygiene is vital for any business owner who is in the food industry as without customers you wouldn’t be in business today.

 

Do you have regular pest control on your business?

 

Have you seen pest like rats, cockroaches, ants or birds in your business?

 

What can you do to avoid a pest outbreak in your business?

 

Could your business survive if you were to have pest outbreak or being fined and put on the name and shame website?

 

In today’s society it is easy for potential customers to search if a business has been placed on the Food Authority’s Name and Shame registry therefore potentially losing you customers for a mistake that you could have avoided.

 

Pest control is so vital in the food industry and anyone who owns a business has the duty of care to make sure that food hygiene and a pest free environment is in place at their business.

 

What are some steps you can do to make sure that your business is pest free?

 

  • Install flyscreens to windows and doors
  • Seal any gaps, holes and cracks and crevices in your building
  • Have an plan of action once your business closes for the day
  • Designate an employee to make sure that other employees pulling their weight when it comes to cleaning and keeping food safe at the end of each day
  • have regular training available for all of your employees so they are aware of the dos and don’ts when it comes to hygiene and pest management
  • Keep food in air tight containers and do not store food on the floor
  • Keep your garbage area neatly and always take the rubbish out at the end of each day
  • Have regular mini inspections, go around the premises and see if you can see any areas which are affected by pest or have pest droppings.
  • Being on a regular pest maintenance program with a pest control company who is licensed

 

When cleaning your business be sure to make sure that you get all fats and oils from those hard to reach places and that all bench tops, counters, floors etc are cleaned with the correct cleaning agent. For cups, plates and utensils make sure that they are sterilised in hot water and the correct detergent is placed in the dishwasher.

 

It is very easy for an outbreak of pest to occur without you realising. Say for instance German cockroaches you see them at night time and depending of the infestation you could very well see them in the day as they are spilling from their harbourage spots. For every female German cockroach you have they have the potential to breed hundreds before you even realise that you have an issue. Female German cockroaches breed every 5 to 6 weeks and once their egg capsule hatches between 40 to 50 baby cockroaches will be running around. Their lifecycle can be hard to eradicate if the outbreak is quite high. Usually you will need to be put on a maintenance program by having an initial service then a follow up service 6 weeks later then depending on the conditions of your business you have services every 6 weeks to 3 months to maintain a pest free environment.
