Do you notice holes in the wood around your property? If so, this is a sign of a termite infestation, which is common in Australia. Other signs of pests may include the droppings of a rat or mouse, mess in the food cupboard and structural damage. As soon as you notice a problem, it is important that you call a pest management company to assist you in eliminating the issue. There are certain places to check for the signs of an infestation, such as the kitchen, the garage and areas where appliances are situated. To ensure you are hiring the right company for the job, there are a few questions you ought to ask the pest removal experts.
What Pests Can You Manage?
The Australian Department of Health considers a pest to be a critter or an animal that could potentially have a bad effect on the health of a human. Pests might damage food that is being stored in the home, they might chew through crops and wooden structures, they could damage clothing, or they might even attack. Ask the pest management specialist about the pest species they can manage before deciding if you want to work with them. Should they manage fleas, cockroaches, louse, termites, rats, mice, mosquitoes and more, chances are that their techniques are very diverse, so you can trust them to keep things under control.
What Jobs Have You Completed in the Past?
Finding out who the pest management specialists have helped in the past will allow you to make an informed decision. Request to see before and after photos of various premises that have been de-pested. Asking to view videos is also a good way of assessing the technique and approach to managing pests. Focus on reviews from previous customers and if any of the previous clients are well-known, you can guarantee that the professionals are good at what they do.
What Methods of Pest Management Do You Perform?
New techniques are being tried out all of the time by people working in the pest management industry. The method performed by the team you hire will depend on which pest is causing a problem. However, you should avoid working with a company that uses toxic chemicals and pesticides, unless this is a last resort option used to tackle a sizeable infestation. A good pest control worker will pay attention to the environment, will wear protective clothing and will maintain all equipment on a regular basis.
