Commercial Pest Control & What Redline Pest Control Can Do For You!!!

Pest Control for all commercial food industries 

 

Did you know that pests in commercial food industries not only will lose clients but also breach health and safety regulations here in NSW.

 

Eradicating pests is a high priority for commercial food industries. Unfortunately, we are hearing and seeing more and more clients who have had pest control by another pest company who have not provided an effective treatment and when the client calls the pest company will only provide a service if they pay yet again (even ineffective treatments)

 

Biggest Pest Problem

 

German cockroaches are the most common pest problem when it comes to the food sector.

 

Normal common cockroaches will breed every six weeks and will usually have between five to 12 baby cockroaches wherefore the German cockroach will breed every six weeks and will have between 40 to 50 baby cockroaches, so you can imagine for every female German cockroach you have an infestation very quickly.

 

Unfortunately, commercial food industries are a favourite place for German cockroaches as they provide an adequate source of food. With the high moisture and warm electrical appliance this makes German cockroaches thrive.

 

Pest Control for commercial food industries.

 

There are three things that must be done to ensure commercial food industries remains German cockroach free.

 

Firstly, ensure that all food is to be kept in airtight containers and put away in the appropriate places.

 

Next, at the end of each day make sure that you have a cleaning check list in place for both yourself and your employees.

 

  • Encourage all employees to Clean their Workstation and surrounding areas
  • Remove any water sources at the end of each day
  • At the end of the day clean any food scraps, work stations, sweep and mop the floors
  • Keep all garbage in a sealed dumpster which should be away from entry points of your premises
  • Clean outdoor eating areas daily and be sure to remove any crumbs and leftovers that will attract pests.

 

Finally, always be on time for your pest service as you don’t want an outbreak of pests in your commercial food industries as this will deter any potential customers and the power of social media these days could ruin your business.

Buyer beware Pest Control Sydney

 

As the weather has started warming up, bugs have started invading homes across Sydney causing quite a stir.

 

What does that mean for those who have pest’s issues?

 

Unfortunately, the pest control industry isn’t regulated and there are a lot of flyby pesties who come out of the woodwork for the busy season.

 

Now I know that everyone is on a budget but looking for that cheap quote where these flyby pesties promise you the world by treating all pests and providing up to 12 months warranty for $99 to $150.

 

Unfortunately flyby pesties either don’t read the manufacturer’s label or they are promising what they know to be false advertising as the chemical manufacture only has a six month warranty on their label.

 

While group buying websites are all the rage today you have to be careful of the fine print in the terms and conditions.

 

Let’s have a look at Gumtree as that is a directory of just about anyone who has access to their website. This is where a lot of flyby pesties advertise their work and can get away with ripping off the average joe blow. Now don’t get me wrong there are also good pest controllers on Gumtree.

 

In reality this actually can come at cost in so many ways.

 

Do you want your family sick?

 

Looking for another pest controller and outlaying more money as the previous pest controller didn’t fix your issue.

 

What happens when the pest come back, and you call that pest controller to come back as you have 12 months warranty, do you get the run around? Their phone is no longer connected? They say oh that is not covered under warranty?

 

What are you paying for?

 

For us here at Redline Pest Control we offer a premium service to each and every client.

 

What do you need to look out for when choosing the right pest controller?

 

Do your research on that company, google them, look for reviews good and bad, check their website out, does it have information that is suited to your needs?

 

By reading reviews you are getting a feel for that company and what they offer.

 

General Pest Control should be on or around the $220 mark and should come with a six month guarantee with spiders having a 1 month guarantee as you need to spray spiders directly as they go from web to web and have oil glands at the end of their legs that don’t soak up the chemical if they do happen to walk over the barrier.

 

A general pest treatment will vary depending on the size of your property.

 

Units: around 40 minutes give or take

 

Single storey home: around 1 hour give or take

 

Double storey home: around 1.5 hours give or take

 

General pest control should cover the following pests:

 

  • Large cockroaches
  • Webbing spiders
  • Silverfish
  • Creamy colour crickets
  • Wasps

 

What is involved in a general pest treatment:

 

Firstly, the technician will chat to you about your concerns with pests and then the pest technician will do a mini inspection to ascertain the level of infestation of each pests.

 

Internally: Skirting boards spray Spraying under all furniture dusting of the roof void, and spraying any cracks and crevices.

Externally: Perimeter spray around your property, around door frames and window frames, Gutters and fascia boards, fence-line, Garden beds, scrubs, bushes, any ornaments on your property, close-line, bins, letterbox, dusting of the sub-floor and in cracks and crevices.
