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

  • 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.

Dead carcasses and the blow fly!

pest pic

 

Monday I had a frantic call from a concerned client saying there was an unusual amount of blow flies swarming in her home and she didn’t know where they were coming from.

 

I asked her the usual questions like can she smell something decaying, was there any meat left out, does she have pets as maybe it is the food that they might not of eaten, to check to see if there was any animals on her property that may of passed. Nothing I asked was occurring so I asked one of our technicians to do an emergency job to investigate why this customer has blow flies in her home.

 

John arrived at the client’s home in Parramatta and searched the lawns, subfloor, and interior and made his way up to the roof void where he instantly smelled a decaying matter. Upon further investigations of the roof void he had found dead rodents in the roof void.

 

John removed two dead rodents but was unable to get the third rodent as it had slipped into the wall cavity. John advised the customer that he was putting the odour eliminating bag in the roof void and that it will suck up any bad smells that was in the roof void.

 

Our client had used a different pest controller to do a rodent treatment and when she had tried to call that pest controller he no longer had his phone in service.

 

Usually when pest controllers bait for rodents they will use bait that has a thinning agent in it so it coagulates the blood stopping it from releasing a bad smell.

 

Unfortunately for our client the bait that was used was a stock standard bait that you could get from the local hardware house which doesn’t have this thinning agent in it.

 

Needless to say our client was so happy that the blow flies have since disappeared and that we have found the source of the issue.

Cockroaches, Rodents and Flies can cause contamination by urinating and pooping over utensils, bench tops, containers and food which has been left out.  Unfortunately these pests carry a lot of harmful bacteria such as streptococcus virus, Staphylococcus Salmonella and streptococcus virus. Would you put your family’s health or life on the line? I know that I certainly wouldn’t put my family’s life on the line.

 

Bees and wasps may be great from an ecological point of view but what dangers can they bring when they have set up their hives in or around your home. For most of a simple bee or wasps sting will only cause small irritation but for others this could very will send them to the emergency department or even worse cause death.

 

Now is the time to prune those trees and bushy areas, clean up around the kiddies play equipment and keep the lawns cut short.

 

Why do we always advise customers to keep their lawns short and their yards neat and tidy?

Pest which are easily undetected cause can serious harm to you or your loved ones.
