1. Move dumpsters containing food further away from school.
2. Seal all cracks, crevices, and wall voids.

The pests which are usually encountered at schools may have the potential to spread diseases. These pests are cockroaches, rodents, and birds.

 

Redline Pest Control values IPM (Integrated Pest Management) and identifies the pest issues thoroughly on arrival for your pest treatment. What we suggest is that you keep a record of pest problems at the school indicating what pests you are experiencing and where the pest was seen each time. By having a pest sighting sheet available for staff they are able to log the date, time and where they are seeing the pests in and around your school.

Frequently Asked Questions!

 

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.

Termite Prevention Tips for your home.

 

IMG_20150812_101216 (1)

 

Unfortunately over the past few months we have been going out to homes across Sydney with extensive termite damage and high volumes of termites eating their homes away.

 

It is very unfortunate that termites will attack one in four homes but what does that mean for you and are you that one home that will be attacked by termites?

 

It is by Australian Standards that each home owner or property investor is responsible to have a termite inspection done every 12 months and if you are in a bushy area it will be 6 months.

 

IMG_4010 - Copy-1_wm

 

It is also up to the home owner or property investor to make sure that they have an appropriate termite management system put into place.

 

So what are somethings you can do around your home that will help minimise the risk of termites making your home their home?

 

Regular termite inspections is a mustTermite management system put into placeRemove any timbers which are in subfloorRemove any wood chippings in your landscapingFix any leaking pipes and drains in and around your home
Replace or repair any damage to shingles, fascia and soffitsRemove any timber landscaping post or logs.

 

Reduce humidity in subfloor by installing a crossflow ventilation fanDivert water sources away from home

 

Remove any dead stumps or trees

 

Seal cracks and crevices in and around homePruning of bushes and heavy foliage is a mustGet a ladder and check your gutters and remove any left, twigs and debris that maybe in your guttersRemove any moisture in and around your homeCheck for any changes in and around your home
Water overflow pipes and air-conditioning pipes are directed away from your homeFirewood and untreated timber be removed from your premises 

 

 

IMG_20150812_113620

 

If you have found termites in or around your home please do not disturb them as by disturbing the termites will cause the termites to move to another location in your home making it harder for the termite technician to ascertain how bad the termite infestation is in your home and what treatment is right for you.

Cockroach Control Sydney

IMG_20150812_101240

 

Do you have cockroaches running around your home?

 

In the dead of night cockroaches will come out of their hidey-holes and will gobble up anything in their sights.

 

Not many people know that cockroaches will not only eat the crumbs that they find but they will also munch on electrical cables, papers, hair, decaying matters and other organisms.

 

It is true that cockroaches can go around a month without food but cannot survive without water for about a week.

 

So what can our clients expect from cockroach control from Redline Pest Control?

 

Redline Pest Control will firstly inspect your premises to find out what species of cockroaches you have.

 

Once identified Redline Pest Control will treat those affected areas.

 

German cockroaches:

 

german_wm

 

German cockroaches are the little goldy brown cockroaches. They will usually start off in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry areas as these areas are dark and moist. Once an infestation starts growing and harbourage places become over crowded the German cockroaches will spread to other areas of your home.

 

So what do we do to get rid of those dirty little cockroaches?

 

First and foremost the technician will access the level of infestation. The technician will spray the skirting boards and place a gel in the hinges of cabinets in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry, any electrical appliances and high risk areas.

 

Large cockroaches:

  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • Laundries
  • Hot water tanks
