Our Recommendation: Both Internal and External Treated

We respect peoples personal preference and we will abide by all our customers requests. But we believe a full treatment provides the best possible result for our customers. We use is a contact surface water based product where the more area we cover the better the result you can expect. Only having external or specific areas treated will not give a full coverage and therefore can provide a lesser result.

General Insect Treatments

Our product is a biodegradable synthetic pyrethroid contact surface spray. It is a liquid based fine mist which is dispersed with a pump action backpack onto surfaces that insects come in contact with. Please be advised it is not a repellent. The insects have to come into contact with the surface for the treatment to take effect. Registered with the A.Q.I.S. (Australian Quarantine Inspection Service) for the use in abattoirs, the product is used in Australia on apples, pears and cotton. It is odourless, colourless and safe around your plants and pets. Procedure for an average property takes no longer than 1 hour with the occupants able to re- enter once treatment completed. We will ask you to vacate while internal application is in progress.

Areas treated include:
  • Internally, your ceilings, skirting boards, door and window frames.
  • Externally, under eaves, around doors and windows, under verandahs, patios, outdoor living areas, outdoor furniture, a base line for crawling insects and even the kennel and kids swing sets. We will treat anything you feel needs treating including sheds and under fence cappings.
  • Please indicate any areas of concern. Our technicians are trained to provide the best value for money but are happy to treat any areas you require.

We are unable to operate in inclement weather. We will be in contact either the day prior or on the morning of your treatment date to provide a alternative date/time.

Recommended Preparation: General Insect Treatment

  • Please remove any clutter. Our technician needs to walk backward through your premises and safety is important. We also don’t want to step on sensitive objects.
  • Make sure all open food is covered i.e. fruit bowl (a tea towel is sufficient)
  • Cover any aquatic pets including fish ponds and tanks with either an old towel, tarp or old sheet. Please remove once our technician has finished.
  • Cover sensitive objects i.e babies cot and/or change table, toothbrushes and place pillows under donnas.
  • If you are going to wash windows or external walls, do so before we arrive.
  • Please raise any external roller shutters and internal curtains or blinds.
  • For health and safety reasons, you will need to vacate while we treat internally.
  • If you have any “unfriendly” animals, please refrain them before we arrive.

The temperature determines the speed at which our treatment will dry. A good indication is to check your wet area floors. When they are dry, you are ready to return inside. We’ll be happy to advise on these requirements.

Recommended Preparation: Timber Pest Inspections

  • Please advise our technician on arrival if you have seen any suspicious signs that you may think is termite activity. Any information is valuable.
  • If you have had any previous inspections and/or termite treatments, please have these documents on hand.
  • If you don’t have any documentation of any previous inspections/treatments, please advise our technician any information you may remember.
  • If you have any locked areas e.g. sheds, internal rooms or locked electrical meter box, please make sure these are unlocked before we arrive.
  • If you have any “unfriendly” animals, please refrain them before we arrive.

Recommended Preparation: Termite Treatments

  • Our technician may need access to water and power, so please advise the office if you are unable to provide these.
  • Please remove any items e.g. pot plants from the external building walls. Extra costs may occur if we need to move these items.
  • All internal floor traps to the sub floors must be accessible.
  • If you have had any previous inspections and/or termite treatments, please have these documents on hand.
  • If you don’t have any documentation of any previous inspections/treatments, please advise our technician any information you may remember.
  • If you have a locked electrical meter box, please make sure this is unlocked before we arrive so we can install a durable notice on competition.
  • If your building has a sub floor, traps may need to be cut for access. Extra costs will occur.
  • If you have any “unfriendly” animals, please refrain them before we arrive.

Post Treatment/Maintenance: General Insect Treatments

  • Brush all spider webs down with a broom (please don’t power wash) 3-5 days after treatment. This gives you an indication if the treatment is working. The return of webs indicates our biodegradable product breaking down.
  • Wipe down your kitchen bench and any food prep areas.
  • When washing windows, keep to the window only. Keep clear of the frames so you don’t wipe away the treatment.
  • Keep 1-2 inches from skirting boards when washing floors. The friction will remove the product. Using a broom and vacuuming has no effect.
