Pests aren’t just annoying, they can be dangerous to you as well! Rats and roaches can carry dangerous diseases with them that can pose serious threats to your well-being. This is why you need to make sure that your premises have good hygiene, as these pests are better prevented than exterminated.


However, if all else fails, and you start seeing pests in your property, it’s a good idea to give a pest control service a call. They will inspect your property, identify the issues and deal with it in a timely and effective manner. However, it’s still important to know and take preventative measures to keep these pests out of your property, which is why you might greatly benefit from this FAQ.


Pest Control FAQ – Hear From The Experts


Why might I need more than one pest control treatment?

One treatment is often enough to exterminate the pest, but many animals can lay eggs in hidden areas in your home, which is often the reason for a pest control problem returning, as the eggs hatch again. If you start seeing small cockroaches in your home after a treatment, contact your pest control again for a follow-up treatment.


How often should I schedule pest inspections?

This entirely depends on your area, the season and the type of pests you are dealing with. Sometimes, it’s a smart idea to schedule an inspection every 2 months if you are in an area more prone to issues, whereas some low-risk properties can get away with doing it once a year. If your home has had a history of termites, you should get your house inspected every 3 months. Once the signs show that the termites are completely gone, then you should return to a yearly inspection. This is just an example as there are more factors that come into play. Consult with us to get a better understanding of your problem.


How much does pest control cost?

This depends on the severity and the type of pests you are dealing with. Some pests are harder to find than others, and some can be extremely difficult to get rid of. Also, the cost of goods will often differ based on the pest. Some property owners might request specific treatments that might cost more than the alternatives, so that has to be accounted for as well.


Our house is infested with fleas. How can a pest control service help?

Pest control services can get rid of the fleas in your home, but not on your pet. You need to take them to the vet to get the condition treated. Your pet’s bedding, however, can be treated by a pest control service.


What about cockroaches, ants and other common pests?

Cockroaches and ants sometimes can’t be completely eliminated. They can be exterminated for a time, but may sometimes return. To keep them out of the house, you might need to start off with a few treatments. All Guard Pest Control guarantee their work and provide you with a 6 month warranty. If the pests return before the expected time, we will sort it out.


What can you do about mice and rats?

Mice and rats can be a huge concern, especially in urban areas. We recommend that the primary treatments used are baits and traps, as well as tracking powder. Rodent pests are drawn to food, which means that the population will often grow quite quickly, once food is sourced. It’s always best to keep food securely locked away and all areas of the house clean.


Spiders are a concern in our area.

Spiders can be highly dangerous, especially in Australia. All Guard Pest Control can get rid of the immediate threats of spiders, however they are often a seasonal issue. To keep your property free of spiders, you might need to set up a periodic inspections during the mating seasons, if your house or area has seen issues with spiders before.
