General Pest Management
In addition to termite management, we also carry out general pest management services including cockroach, ants and spider treatments, flea and tick control and rodent control and proofing. We also are accredited to manage noxious weed and pest plant species in both domestic and commercial situations.
Chemical vs non-chemical
We use an environmentally responsible, integrated pest management (IPM) approach to control pests. This involves identifying the target pest’s access points, harbourage areas and food sources and applying a combination of physical, cultural (lifestyle) and chemical controls. Where appropriate, we will provide recommendations of actions that you can take to minimise the recurrence of pests in and around your home.
A range of low toxic and targeted products are now available which means smaller doses can be applied only to specific pests as and if required.
No need to empty cupboards
At Pest Affects, we use cockroach gels for interior applications in preference to pesticide sprays. This eliminates the need to empty cupboards, mop floors, or leave the house during or after treatment. An added advantage of this is that it is also a non-irritant and has no odour. On occasions, we may recommend the use of a pesticide spray, particularly when dealing with certain pest species. If this occurs, we will advise you on the appropriate preparation you will need to do prior to the treatment.
