What To Ask Your Pest Control Contractor
Are they fully licensed?
Pest controllers in Queensland must be licensed by Queensland Health and if they inspect for or treat termites they must also be licensed by the Queensland Building Services Authority. Some pest control companies have been given exemption from insurance requirements by the QBSA.
You should ensure your pest control contractor is fully insured so you know they’re a qualified professional.
How long have they been in business?
Some companies have a VERY short history or change hands frequently.
When spraying a house for general pests, do they also treat inside the roof and wall cavities as pests often lurk in these areas?
This is an important question to ask when getting quotations as some operators will cut corners and give you a substandard pest spray.
Are the products they use highly effective, with low irritancy / toxicity and are they always used at the recommended rate?
There are some cheaper products on the market that are higher in irritancy / toxicity. We always use the products that are safest for our clients and the environment.
Are they going to respect your house by removing their shoes before walking inside your home?
All Care will always respect your property and will always remove their shoes prior to entering your home
Do they have the best technology available to inspect buildings for termites?
We use the latest microwave technology, thermal imaging and moisture detection when inspecting for termites.
We are certified to use Bayer, Termidor and Sumitomo products plus Exterra, XTerm and Termatrix termite (white ant) baiting systems and many more.
Are they familiar with all the regulatory requirements that are involved with all pest control work?
There are strict regulations when using pest control sprays and it is important that your pest control contractor knows how to follow those regulations to keep you and your family safe.
