Why is pest control important? Can’t I just use DIY?

Pest control is important for both commercial and residential sites for many reasons, including:

  • Safety: Many pests can present serious safety concerns (such as spiders, wasps, bees, etc). This may seem obvious to an informed adult; however, many children and pets are unaware of the potential dangers from pests.
  • Building protection: Pests can compromise some elements of buildings, such as the structural, electrical and water damage. For example, rodents have been known to chew on electrical wires, presenting a serious fire hazard. Termites left untreated can cause irreversible damage to the structure of buildings, which is not covered by insurance. Damage to plumbing and drainage from pests can lead to termite attraction and mould.
  • Health: Many pests are known as carriers of harmful diseases, including pigeons, rodents and cockroaches. These can be transmitted through your home and food.
  • Peace of mind: Pest presence can be troubling. A pest control technician can give you the peace of mind you are looking for through treatment and prevention services.
  • Compliance: Pest control may be required for commercial businesses to maintain health and safety regulations.

We do not recommend DIY (do-it-yourself) treatments for pest control. Here is why:

  • Ineffective and temporary results: A pest controller will always provide more effective and long-term results. You may feel like you are saving money using DIY treatments, but in the long run it becomes more expensive due to the ineffective results and need for regular retreatments.
  • Dangerous: Anyone can use a DIY treatment without understanding the dangers of the pest and chemicals they are using. However, a pest control technician is an expert in the field with a trained eye. They will always provide a safe and effective service, every time!
  • Legal ramifications: Some pests, such as possums, are a protected species that require a licence and understanding of the government regulations to trap them. Failure to abide by these laws (including mis-baiting or illegal trapping) can lead to serious fines.

Do you offer your services to commercial and residential?

Yes! At The Local Guys – Pest Control, all of our technicians are trained to work with both commercial and residential sites. Pest control is essential for compliance in many commercial industries (particularly food and hospitality) for health regulations. However, we believe pest control is equally important at both site types. We have a treatment plan available for every situation. No job is too big or too small for us!
