Frequently Asked Questions

Do I clean the spider webs away after a treatment?

We recommend that you do not clean the spider webs away for up to two weeks after your spider treatment. This promotes a more effective outcome because the chemical residue left on the web will continue to treat all insects that come into contact with it.

What can I expect from a pest control service?

Inspection

Upon our arrival, you will be greeted by one of our friendly pest control technicians. Before we begin the inspection, we will discuss your pest issue with you. This ensures we are well informed so we can determine the best course of action. Some of the things we will discuss with you, include:

  • Pest species
  • Location
  • Reason for activity (why the pest is there to begin with)
  • Treatment options
  • Budget

Once we have been informed of all the details, we will inspect all the areas of concern. This inspection will be different for each service. However, during every inspection we are not afraid to get down and dirty to ensure we are conducting a thorough and detailed inspection. Areas of inspection may include:

  • Roof voids
  • Subfloors
  • Gardens
  • Sheds
  • Internal and external areas of building

 

Treatment

Once the inspection has been completed, the pest control professional will inform the client of their findings and recommendations for treatment. We will provide several different options, based on the best course of action, budget and any other concerns you have.

Our technicians are trained to use various techniques and products to treat your pest control concerns, depending on the level of infestation and the location. We understand pest control is not a one-size-fits-all measure… and therefore, we tailor each pest control job to ensure the best results every time!

After you agree upon a treatment plan, the technician will walk you through each step, so you are fully informed of the process that is to be performed. Additionally, they will discuss with you what they require from you to ensure you and your family are kept safe.

 

Reporting and Follow Up                                          

Upon completion of the treatment, you will be provided with full reporting outlining the service and any other future recommendations to prevent future pest infestations. Not only do we want to help you eliminate your pest control problem, but we also want to prevent you from experiencing it again.

Our professional technicians will inform you if you require any follow up treatments. We will also contact you when your next suggested treatment is due, so you do not need to worry about having to remember to rebook in! We want to make all of your pest control issues as stress-free as possible, which, to us, includes not only the treatment, but also the follow up process.

Do you guarantee your work?

Yes! At The Local Guys – Pest Control, we are confident in our practices. This is why we offer free service periods on all of our services. The length of these warranty periods vary depending on the service provided. For example, a cockroach free service warranty is 3 months after the initial service date (conditions apply). Therefore, if you are still seeing live cockroach activity within this period of time, all you need to do is give us a call and the technician will return and retreat until the problem has been rectified to your satisfaction.

In regard to termite protection, we also deal with Australian leaders in termite management systems, such as Exterra. Exterra offers a $250,000 timber replacement warranty on homes that have their termite management system installed (conditions apply).

We understand having pests in your home or business can be unsettling, this is why we have these warranties in place, so you can feel assured that we will provide 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of our work.

Are you competitively priced? What are your payment options?

At The Local Guys – Pest Control, we are competitive with our pricing. This is why we believe we are more affordable than our competitors. We understand pest control can be a costly expense – that often comes at the worst times and requires immediate attention. We also understand that a lot of pest control issues are not the client’s fault. For these reasons we aim to provide the highest-standard service possible for a reasonable cost. Additionally, unlike some other franchises, at The Local Guys – Pest Control we have much lower overheads. This is because each of our technicians are local small business owners. Lower overheads, mean lower costs for the consumer.

If you receive a cheaper written quote elsewhere, you may discuss price matching with the technician (at the discretion of the technician).

The Local Guys – Pest Control have a range of different payment options available. Not only do we take cash payments, but each technician also has EFTPOS payments available for on the day payment. Commercial businesses may pay on the day or receive an invoice to be paid at a later date (dependant on technician’s terms). We understand that pest control costs can be an unexpected outlay, therefore, we have payment plans available (conditions apply). Please discuss this with our technician for more details.

What do I need to do to prepare for my pest control treatment?

Prior to any of our pest control treatments, your technician will discuss with you the required steps of preparation and outline a step-by-step walkthrough of the treatment. This may include:

  • Putting away your pet’s food and water bowls
  • Putting away any food into cupboards, as inside cupboards will not be treated during a general pest control treatment
  • Covering aquariums (fish and reptile enclosures)
  • Putting away any toothbrushes
  • Clearing away stored items from the outside perimeter
  • Put away any children’s toys/ pacifiers/ bottles and anything that your child may put in their mouth
  • Put away your kettle inside a cupboard

Then, sit back and relax while we take care of it! If required, the technician will tell you how long you need to stay away from the areas of treatment and when it is safe to return.

Why should I use a pest controller over DIY?

A pest control expert will always provide more effective results than a DIY treatment. Many people try DIY treatments because they believe it will be cheaper and more convenient… However, the reality of DIY pest treatments:

  • Only provide temporary fixes: This may feel like you are saving money, however, as the issue is only being band-aided, in the long run you will spend more time and money trying to find the best treatment… and often eventually will call in a professional anyway. Think of the time and money that could have been saved if you contacted a professional pest controller from the start!
  • Can be dangerous: When a professional pest controller treats your home, they are trained and experienced. DIY treatments can be dangerous when your inexperienced and dealing with dangerous chemicals and potentially dangerous pests.
  • Are not used by someone with a trained eye: Anyone can use a DIY treatment without understanding what they are actually treating and the requirements to eradicate the concern effectively. A pest controller has been trained to correctly determine the best treatment plans for every situation.
  • Can have legal ramifications: When dealing with protected species, such as possums, you need to be licenced and have the correct knowledge around government regulations set in place to protect Australia’s wildlife. Not abiding by these laws (including removing or mis-baiting) can lead to major fines.

What if I still see pests after a treatment?

For a short period after your treatment, you will still see pests as they are being forced from their hiding places. This is a part of the treatment process. Once you start seeing dead pests around your home, this is a sign of the treatment doing its job.

If, for any reason, you continue to see live activity within your free service period, notify your technician and they will happily come and retreat the problem areas, until your satisfaction.

I had a rodent baiting treatment... And now there is an odour coming from my roof. What do I do?

Although unlikely, an odour can occur after a rodent baiting treatment. If this is the case, please notify your pest control technician. As a part of our free service period, we will return to your premise to rectify the concern.

How often should I have my house checked for termites/pests?

It is a recommendation as per the Australian Standard that your home/ business is inspected every 12 months as a minimum for termite activity. For general pests, this can be completed at your discretion, however, we recommend you have an inspection/ service completed every 6 months. Regular inspections are a part of prevention! Prevention is better than treatment as you are protecting your home/business before the problem occurs.

Why is pest control important?

Pests will continue to be apart of our everyday lives, which is why the pest control industry is important for everyone. Here are some reasons why:

  • Safety: Although pests are often viewed as just a nuisance, safety is also a major concern. In regards to children and pets, bees, wasps, and spiders can be critically dangerous.
  • Building damage: The structure of homes can be compromised by termites, which can lead to irreversible damage that is not covered by home insurance. Additionally, electrical faults can occur from rodents and birds gnawing at electrical wires, which can lead to fires and electric shocks. Water damage can also occur from damages to plumbing and drainage from pests, which can lead to termite attraction and mould.
  • Health: Pests, such as pigeons, rodents and cockroaches are known carriers of harmful diseases, which can be spread throughout your home and contaminate your food.
  • Peace of mind: Pests can be unsettling; therefore, a technician can provide you and your family peace of mind from their presence. Pest control prevention options are also available.
  • Compliance: Pest Control is essential in many commercial businesses, including the food and hospitality industry to ensure the health and safety of anyone who come into contact with the business.

How are pests getting in my home?

Pests can enter the home in a variety of ways. This may include:

  • Entering through an open door or window
  • Transported in via laundry, groceries, second-hand furniture, pets, etc
  • Cracks and crevices

If you are finding pests in your home, you should also consider why they are present as well as how they are getting inside. Factors which may increase the attraction of pests in your home may include:

  • Food and water sources
  • Cleanliness
  • Pets
  • Warmth and shelter
  • As a result of another pest issue (birds nesting can bring bird mites into your home)

Do you protect bees?

Yes! All of our technicians provide bee relocation options (dependant on the client’s preferences and the hive’s accessibility) to ensure their safety. Due to extinction concerns, we make a conscious effort to protect their existence. We understand bees are important to our ecosystem, which is why we work closely with beekeepers.

I can hear noises in my roof... What could this be?

It is common for rodents and animals to enter the roof void for safety and warmth. If you believe you may have something in your roof void, you may hear:

  • Scratching
  • Scurrying
  • Gnawing
  • Movement
  • Screeching

If you are unsure of what pest it is making these noises, At The Local Guys – Pest Control, we say:

“A mouse sounds like a rat, a rat sounds like a possum, and a possum sounds like an elephant.”
