As a business owner we all know the stress that comes with owning a business.

 

The last thing that is on our minds after a 15 hour day is pests and the havoc that they can cause.

 

In an ideal world we would love for pests to disappear rather than multiply.

 

What is your responsibility when it comes to pest control in a food premises?

 

As soon as you see any pest in your food business you must always contact a trusted pest controller who will provide you with not only a pest service which eliminates pest but also provides an appropriate pest management program.

 

It is by Australian standards that anyone in the food sector is to not only be trained in safe food handling but also must be on a pest management program which controls the threshold level of pests that enter your premises.

 

So you have this beautiful restaurant with beautiful food in a great part of Sydney don’t ruin it by letting pests take over and scare your customers away.

 

We often get calls from commercial clients who have tried doing pest control on their own or with someone who was cheap but didn’t know what they were doing and they were still experiencing pests.

 

What are some risk that is associated with pests entering your food premises?

 

  • Customers getting sick or dying from contamination from urine or faeces and diseases that pests may carry
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of reputation
  • Bad reviews on your business
  • Fines
  • Your business could be shut down
  • You go on the name and shame website

 

When Redline Pest Control comes out to your commercial premises the technician will always ask you questions regarding what pests you are seeing and where you are seeing those pests, the technician will get you to walk around with them and show them where the problematic areas are.

 

Each Redline Pest Control technician will discuss the method of treatment that is to be carried out on your premises and will advise you on what you need to do in order to reduce the risk of pest infestations in the future.

 

Redline Pest Control doesn’t just provide pest control but will always be available for you at any time of the day and night if needed. We will provide you with helpful hints and if there is a pest that you can get rid of on your own will advise you of the method of treatment, not only does this save you money but it also builds our working relationship with trust that we are not just there to take your money and run.

The cold hard truth about cockroaches and can it cause Asthma

 

Whether we like it or not cockroaches at some point will enter our premises and set up their cosy little living space.

 

Not many people realise that cockroaches can actually cause asthma.

 

Decomposing cockroaches, saliva, faeces and urine from cockroaches has just enough organisms for us to breathe into our bronchial tubes. With some people this can cause an allergic reaction that is also known as asthma.

 

Not everyone who has cockroaches in their home will develop asthma. Usually the people who are affected are people who are more sensitive in their bronchial tubes.

 

Unfortunately as the weather is getting warmer and warmer this makes the perfect breeding ground for cockroaches.

 

Cockroaches are a nocturnal insect and will often come creeping out in search for food at night and will scatter away once the light has been turned on.

 

Cockroaches is not just limited to causing asthma but they can also create other health issues which can make you severely sick or can cause death.

 

The cold hard truth about cockroaches and can it cause Asthma
The cold hard truth about cockroaches and can it cause Asthma

 

Studies have been done and while German cockroaches are on the top of the list for causing asthma this does not exclude the larger cockroaches.

 

German cockroaches will breed every five to six weeks and will have between forty to fifty baby cockroaches in each egg sack.

 

Large cockroaches have less than the German cockroaches with around 15 baby cockroaches.

 

So what can you do to avoid an infestation of cockroaches?

 

  • After every meal clean up and wipe bench tops down
  • Sweep, vacuum and mop floors daily
  • Remove any clutter in and around your home
  • Store all food in airtight containers
  • Clean out your pantry on a regular basis as crumbs can often fall on the shelves
  • Fix any cracks and crevices around your home
  • At the end of the day pack your pets bowl away so there is no food source
  • After shopping check bags and boxes for cockroaches or their egg sacks
  • Check your kids backpacks when they come home from school or when staying out over night
  • Fix any leaky pipes in and around your home
  • Also take the rubbish out each night

Interview with one of our office girls

Pest Control Interview

 

What do you love most about your job?

 

I really love having a chat with our clients, hearing about what pest they have and educating our clients on the life cycle of each pest.

 

What do you dislike about your job?

 

The only thing I would say that I dislike about my job is hearing that their previous pest controller didn’t do their job correctly. I really hate hearing our clients upset and angry.

 

What is a funny storey that you have heard since working at Redline Pest Control?

 

Oh gee there is quite a few funny stories but my favourite would have to be Mrs Allan a widower from Parramatta who fell asleep watching tv with a bar of chocolate next to her. When Mrs Allan woke up she glanced down and saw a mouse nibbling on her chocolate she had such an awful fright that she had flung the mouse up in the air along with the chocolate and went darting into the other room.

 

What is your favourite pest?

 

Oh I would have to say the peacock spider the way it moves and the amazing colours that come from these little spiders is amazing.

 

What is your least favourite pest?

 

Ground dwelling spiders would have to be my least favourite. Something about them that creeps me right out.

 

If you have one word to described Redline Pest Control what would it be?

 

I can only chose one word now that is hard as we stand for so much but I would have to say reliable. Can I still say the rest?

 

If you could change one thing in the pest industry what would it be?

 

I would regulate the pest industry, there is too many cowboys out there trying to make a quick dollar from unsuspecting clients. It truly breaks my heart when I hear that our clients have been ripped off and still experiencing pests.

With the current weather becomes increasingly hot out comes those annoying pest that we all loathe.

 

I usually get pest control done at the end of spring closer to weather but I had found that over the past few days I had a large increase of large cockroaches and bees swarming around my house.

 

Anyone that knows me knows that I generally don’t have an issue with pest except pest that can contaminate my food and could potentially sting me.

 

Spiders don’t really bother me as much as I find spiders so fascinating with the way they spin their webs and the amazing patterned colours that each spider has.

With rodent treatments we will ask you where you are experiencing the issue whether it will be internal, external or both. We will also ask you what times are you hearing the noise if you are hearing noises in roof void as this very well could be a possum. Rodents love their run paths and will often dart from place to place in a blink of an eye.

 

Internal Areas:

 

Bait will be placed in roof void if you are hearing noises, bait will be placed in cardboard bait stations and will be placed strategically behind furniture, fridges, washing machines, dryers and any other places that rodents will frequent.

 

External Areas:

 

When we bait outside for rodents we always try to look for places that the bait in cardboard bait stations can be strategically placed. If there is no place that the bait can be placed we will advise you that you will need to purchase lockable bait stations which is yours to keep and the best thing is they are reusable and all you need to do if you have a rodent issue again is to replenish the lockable bait station.

What is spider control and how does it work?

 

Every home at some point will have spiders whether they are your annoying friendly house spider or your poisonous spider which is hunting for its next victim.

 

Spider Control Sydney

How does Redline Pest Control eradicate spiders?

 

First and foremost our technicians will go around your home or business and will correctly identify any spiders which are on your premises before any treatment is carried out.

 

Depending on the type of spider which is lurking in your home there is different treatments that we carry out.

 

Spider control Sydney

Your typical webbing spider will need to be sprayed directly as spraying around the perimeter will not eradicate them.

 

Unfortunately spiders are not like other pest and will not die once they walk over the chemical barrier which is set in place once a treatment has been carried out.

 

The reason why spiders needs to be directly sprayed is that their feet or paws have tiny little velcro hairs which doesn’t absorbed the chemical which has been sprayed around the spiders habitat.

Ground dwelling spiders are also known as wanders and will make burrows in the ground and depending on what species of Ground dwelling spider that is lurking in your home or business some will have small silk trip lines to catch their prey.

 

What are ground dwelling spiders and webbing spiders

Redline Pest Control needs to comb over both your front and back yard to see if there is any little burrows and once a ground dwelling spider infestation has been identified  the technician will spot treat each burrow and then will do a blanket spray over the yard.

If you have ground dwelling spiders inside your home Redline Pest Control will need to do a treatment which involves smoke bombs. Using smoke bombs will kill off any pest or spider which is hibernating in cracks and crevices in your home. You will need to leave home for around 4 hours once the smoke bombs have been activated and will need to stay at least another half an hour outside once you have opened your windows and doors after the 4 hour period is up.

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.

 

Pest Control Sydney

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.
  • Do mini inspections in and around your home for pest and termites.
  • Remove any timbers, stumps and wood chippings as this will attract termites.
  • If you have a subfloor make sure that there isn’t any debris as this will attract termites.
  • Have regular Termite Inspections every 6 to 12 months to avoid termite damage to your home.
