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?
