What makes a great pest control service?

Great pest control services deliver outcomes with minimal impact to your schedule and wellbeing. It may be helpful to consider the following traits before locking your technician in:

  • Qualified & licensed. Before engaging any pest control technician, ensure they are equipped with all the right credentials. These include appropriate qualifications, such as a Certificate III in Urban Pest Management for populated areas or in Rural and Environmental Pest Management for agricultural areas and national parks. Importantly, all pest control technicians within Wagga must be licensed. With five main pesticide license types in operation across the state, be sure to visit the NSW Environmental Protection Agency’s public register. Finally, when it comes to termites, qualified pest controllers must comply with Australian Standard 3660 for termite management.
  • Insured. As with engaging any service in and around your property always ensure they are appropriately insured. Coverage should include both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance, which protect clients in the event of negligence or property damage.
  • Experienced. The best pest control providers have been in business for years. With this comes a depth and breadth of experience that allows them to handle any pest problem. Be it observational skills, chemical compositions, and compounded treatments, this knowledge ensures your issues are dealt with swiftly.
  • Eco conscious. Chemical use is often an integral component of any pest management program. The best pest control teams apply responsible practices through and through. They opt for eco conscious and safer use alternatives wherever possible and always adhere to approved chemical guidelines.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have a pest and termite inspection?

You should have an inspection on a yearly basis. Termites in particular do considerable damage to building structures when left unchecked, and these problems can usually be avoided or minimised with a yearly inspection.

What pests can a pest control service get rid of?

Pest control services remove unwanted creatures such as cockroaches, rodents, ants, bedbugs, and termites from homes, buildings, and surrounding areas. They can also inspect buildings for signs of pests and provide regular, preventative treatments against pests.

Are there different types of pest control?

Absolutely, and the type a pest control service uses depends on the issue at hand. Methods include trapping, fumigation, poison, sterilisation, and pesticides to control, deter, or kill nuisance pests.

Are there environmentally friendly pesticides?

There are obvious concerns about the risks of exposing yourself to pesticides. Luckily, there are plenty of eco-friendly alternatives available to pest control services. Rather than using chemicals to control pests, pest control services can also use scents, oils and tastes to create safe and natural deterrents for the pests. If the problem does demand chemicals, however, the pest control service should know how to properly handle and dispose of those materials.

When are pests most active?

In Wagga, the most common and problematic pests - cockroaches, spiders, ants, fleas and wasps - are most active during the warmer months. Termites, however, are active all year round.
