Our team is properly licensed, well trained, and closely supervised, so our services guarantee maximum effectiveness in compliance with strict health management guidelines. Regardless of what part of South East QLD you're in, your house is a magnet to bugs and insects.

Annual pest control service
Most premises in Queensland need pest control at least once a year, with others such as restaurants needing it far more often. We can propose an annual pest control program after our initial visit, so that you don't need to think about it anymore. Our scheduled services are ideal for homes and offices, hotels and motels, restaurants and cafes, etc.

It would be nice if there was a 'one size fits all' approach to pest control, whereby spiders, rats, mice, cockroaches etc could all the controlled with the same treatment, but the reality is that different species and sub-species require a different treatment entirely. For example, German cockroaches are far more pervasive and require much more rigorous and ongoing treatment than regular cockroaches. That said, however, it doesn't matter what pest problem you're having - our trained and licensed technicians can inspect, assess, and recommend a solution in any case. Whilst it's always better to prevent an infestation than it is to try to clean one up, and to that end most of the jobs we do each week are routine preventative treatments, we can also deal with infestations.
One thing that attracts and supports the existence of pests around the house, somewhat surprisingly, is leaking plumbing - indeed any stagnant pools of water. They don't just breed mosquitoes, but also provide the neccessary water source for pests to breed and exist in your home. Sources of water can include leaky fittings, plant water trays, outdoor areas such as drains etc, and wet bathrooms. Another point to consider is the placement of plants, shrubs, and trees when you're doing your gardening or landscaping - keep trees, bushes and plants at least 30cm away from your house walls when building your garden, as this will remove the opportunity for crawling insects to use the plants as a bridge to get to your walls, then climb up and into the ceiling cavity, eventually making their way into the house. Most pest control companies will do two things to prevent this type of thing happening; they'll form an invisible chemical barrier around the top of your walls on the outside of the house (just under the eaves), and they'll also apply a dust-based pesticide in your ceiling cavity to help thwart the journey of any insects that might make it past the barrier outside and also to prevent having a breeding place for any insects that might already be inside the house.
If you have outdoor areas that are particularly attractive to insects (sometimes airborne insects) at night time, especially during the summer months, an effective deterrent is to change the color of the lighting - as far as possible from white. Yellow, pink, and even orange lights are less attractive to bugs and insects than regular white lights, and can help prevent your outdoor areas acting as a magnet for pests and insects that are looking for a comfortable place to move in!
Other simple things that you can do regularly that cost nothing are to routinely inspect for pools or puddles of water that might be providing a drinking source for pests, and to maintain good basic hygiene around the home - including but not limited to removing old boxes etc that providing hiding and breeding places for crawling insects, and also regularly vacuuming carpets and sweeping floors to keep sources of food and shelter for the insects to a minimum. Cockroaches particularly are drawn to food scraps, even packaging that might have residual smell or taste on it can provide a rewarding snack for a hungry and hunting cockroach, and given their capacity to breed and replicate in numbers quickly, the last thing you want to do is to feed cockroaches!
A common problem that many Aussie households experience (again, during the warmer months mostly) is outdoor ants. Whilst most pest control companies can offer a treatment for outdoor ants, it will rarely be a singular treatment, because the issue with ants outside is that it's more of a suburb-wide problem than a one-house problem. You can get rid of the ants in your back yard, but it's only going to be a matter of days before the colonies from your neighbours yards realise there is empty territory for them to invade, and then you'll be right back to having a strong population of ants in your yard. Some of the treatments used, depending on the situation, can be to locate the ants nests or holes and treat them with pesticide, and to also place ant bait stations in the areas immediately around the nests.
