Frequently Asked Questions

At Control Pest Management we receive a large amount of calls from customers asking simple yet important questions, below we list some of the most common questions asked by our customers.

Finding termites inside your home can be a scary experience. Don’t disturb them, call for help immediately. Termites are timid, and if they come into contact with anything unexpected like humans digging into their ‘pathway’, they will simply up and move to another area of your house, where they are undisturbed, and continue destroying your timberwork until you detect them again. They rarely move ‘out’ because the food in the house is far too inviting for them to leave. If you think you have termites, call in the experts, to start the elimination process.

 

For those termites found outside, call the expert straight away, cause due to their nature if they are disturbed they will move, often straight towards the house which provides the security and food bank that they crave.

With Control Pest Management the answer is yes.

Our Pest Control technicians are highly skilled and use only the safest and most effective techniques for pest eradication, all of our chemicals are environmentally friendly and safe to both humans and pets.

Our carefully selected range of registered and thoroughly tested products along with our application methods are designed to cause no adverse health effects, particularly in sensitive situations with children, pets and health conditions such as asthma.

Yes you can remain inside the property because exposure to the chemicals are minimal. The safety precautions are rigidly followed by all technicians. Chemicals are sprayed carefully and directly on the areas that count by our experts, whether around the skirting boards inside the property, or inside the walls, cupboards, or any roof space. The chemicals used in the treatment are specially selected to meet your circumstances without compromising the effectiveness of the treatment.

Most of the treatment is provided in the areas where pests breed and can’t be  seen, which is inside the walls and inside the roof inside the cupboards.

Treatment outside a property includes:

  • Fence line to fence line
  • Fences
  • Gardens – trees and shrubbery
  • Footpaths
  • Clothes lines
  • Rubbish bins
  • Pool areas
  • Sheds
  • Gazebos
  • Outdoor furniture
  • Walls of house/property
  • Wall cavities through weep holes

Treatment for inside a property:

  • Inside roof
  • Cracks and crevices
  • Cupboards
  • Door frames
  • Window frames
  • Skirting boards

For best results, provide as much access for us to spray along the room edges, move furniture to the centre of the rooms, empty kitchen cupboards and ensure all food items are removed from kitchen tops. Think about your garage and accessing the room edges as well as the around the house walls outside. The more we can reach the more effective the treatment.

Our treatments are tailored to meet the individual pest control requirements.

  • Average home: It is recommended to have pest control done by a qualified and registered technician at least annually
  • Working environment: It is recommended for OH&S considerations to have pest control carried out at least 6 monthly.
  • Commercial food establishments: You will find most local council requirements recommend to have pest control carried out at least quarterly.
