ANTS & SPIDERS
- We start by identifying the type of ant or spider that is causing the problem. This helps us determine the best course of action for treatment.
- We use a combination of chemical and non-chemical treatments to eliminate ants and spiders from your home.
- We treat both the interior and exterior of your home to ensure that all pests are eliminated.
- We use baits and other methods to target the source of the infestation, rather than just treating the symptoms.
- We offer ongoing pest control services to ensure that ants and spiders don’t come back.
- Home remedies like diatomaceous earth, baking soda, boric acid, citrus, essential oils, and borax.
- Glue traps, bait stations, and liquid roach deterrent concentrates.
- Cockroach bait, which is one of the most effective DIY treatments.
- Cockroach spray, which kills the bug on contact.
- Insecticidal spray, glue traps, and gel bait, which are used by exterminators to eliminate roaches
- Fumigation, which may be required for the most severe infestations
- Use rat poison or snap traps to kill them quickly.
- Clean your home regularly and throw away old food to deter rats from coming back.
- Seal any gaps outside your home to stop rats from getting in.
- Keep trash away from the perimeter of your home and trim back bushes and shrubs so they don’t touch the side of your home.
- Store unsealed food in airtight containers to limit rodents’ access.
- Use a mixture of flour, baking soda, and sugar to kill rodents.
- Minimize sources of shelter and food outdoors, then spray repellents around your garden to discourage the pests from visiting
- Use insecticides, such as sprays, powders, and foggers.
- Use natural solutions, such as vinegar, essential oils, or lawn maintenance.
- Sanitation and pet treatment are the first steps to eliminate fleas and their eggs.
- Vacuum frequently to suck up fleas, eggs, larvae, and pupae from floors, furniture, mattresses, exposed floorboards, and skirting boards.
- Wash all bedding often at the highest temperature appropriate for the material and dry it on a high heat setting.
- Use safe regular flea treatment that is suitable for your pet.
- Check pets and their bedding for signs of fleas regularly.
BEES & WASPS
- Use a bee spray that targets their nervous system and causes paralysis and death.
- Use a powder dust that suffocates and dehydrates them.
- Install an electric bug zapper that electrocutes them.
- Use vinegar that repels them with its strong smell.
- Use an ultrasonic pest repellent that emits high-frequency sounds that annoy them.
- Plant bee repelling plants such as mint, basil, lavender, or lemongrass.
- Light a citronella candle that produces a scent that they hate.
- Use mothballs that contain naphthalene, a chemical that is toxic to them.
- Pour a bucket of boiling water onto the wasp nest to kill and destroy it.
EARWIGS/ MILLIPEDES /SLATERS
- Use rubbing alcohol and water: Mix some together in a spray bottle. Spritz directly on earwigs to kill them on contact.
- Use olive oil and soy sauce: Cook up a trap with these two ingredients by mixing oil and soy sauce in a container and leaving it in a spot where you last saw earwigs.
- Implement pre-sowing control measures in paddocks with stubble pest problems.
- Reducing crop residues: Crop stubble provides a cool, moist habitat that helps invertebrate survival. With stubble retention practises a mainstay on many farms, slaters, millipedes, and earwigs have become common in broadacre crops.
- Managing stubble is likely to be an effective strategy to reduce slaters, millipedes, and earwigs.
- Crop choice: While slaters, millipedes, and earwigs can attack multiple plant species, some crops are more susceptible to damage than others.
- Chemical options: Seed treatment choice will also influence the degree of feeding damage.
