Pest Control Cowandilla

If not addressed promptly, a termite infestation can become a significant issue. Mishandling or neglecting a pest infestation can have profound implications, including the property’s poor structural capacity, destroyed furniture, ruined clothes, and more.
Numerous expert pest control businesses provide services to rid the property of insects, rats, and birds and guarantee a clean environment. However, to stop these tenacious insects from harming valuables and property, it is imperative to seek the assistance of specialists.

Since pest invasion is highly prevalent, dealing with the problem is crucial rather than neglecting the problem without recognizing the severe consequences.

We have years of experience dealing with various kinds of pests thanks to our location in Australia and our service to the people of that nation. We are qualified to handle chemicals, assess the problem, and implement workable solutions to guarantee a clean property.

What Termite Prevention Steps Can You Take?

Do not worry if termites have infested your home. There are ways to stop these pests from spreading inside your homes. To prevent termite infestations in your homes, follow the guidelines.

Look for leaks
Some species of termites require moisture to survive. Keep your home dry, paying specific attention to the roof and air conditioner.

Clear pipes and gutters:
Warm, damp environments are termites’ preferred hiding places. So, periodically clean out your gutters and pipes to prevent termite infestation.

Fill gaps:
To prevent termites from spreading into your home, seal any unneeded gaps or openings in the foundation. Make sure to secure the windows and doors.

Keep an eye on wood:
As previously stated, termites enjoy devouring wood. You cannot, therefore, store firewood up against your homes. Keep your porch, deck, or patio at least six inches above the ground while building your dwellings to avoid termite infestation.

Obtain routine inspections:
Regular home inspections are another method for preventing termite infestation. Pest control services can help with termite infestation.

Is Pest Control Safe?

Yes. Pest control services are generally safe. First of all, not all pest control treatments depend on chemicals and sprays. According to the pest type and the overall situation, The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Team will use the most suitable methods that include techniques like making physical changes to the surrounding environment, trapping, and eco-friendly treatment methods.
If the situation requires using pesticides, we use the safest formulations and baits available and apply them directly where pests are living and reproducing. We do not overuse chemicals and avoid any unnecessary applications to minimize the impact that these products might have on humans and pets.
If there is an allergic child or a pregnant woman, we ask the homeowner to find another place for them while treating the house and until the treatments dry completely. The risks are low, but it is a necessary safety precaution.
If you have any questions or concerns about our pest control services and treatments, speak with our technicians before they start working at your place. They will keep your concerns in mind and consider them while treating your place. After all, pest control services are about the safety of your family.

What happens If I have a Respiratory Problem or An Allergy?

The safety of everyone at your home is the most important thing for us. After inspecting your place, we will be able to determine the type of pest infestation and the different techniques we can use to eliminate it. The techniques do not only include the use of chemical products but also environmental changes and using non-chemical products.
Therefore, if you or any family member has a respiratory problem such as asthma or allergies, or sensitivity to chemical products, we will modify our treatment plan to suit the situation.

Is Pest Control Eco-Friendly?

Treatment is a general concept used in the pest control industry to describe the wide variety of options, techniques, and products available to professional pest control experts like us. The treatment options include pastes, gels, dust, mist sprayers, water-based liquid sprayers, baits, and many other options. Our experts determine the best type of applications to be used according to many factors such as the type of pests, the severity of the infestation, and the best access to the infected area. In some cases, we have to use more than one type of treatment.
The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Team will explain to you all the treatment options and the best treatment option for your property’s problem.

Is Pest Control Safe for My Pets?

The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Technicians can provide you with a checklist of what should be done before treating your place. This may include removing your pets temporarily from the property or at least from the treated area.
After finishing the treatment, your technician will tell you when it is safe for your pets to re-enter the home.
Also, if there is a flea infestation, we may recommend taking your pet to the vet to make sure that it is not infected.

Where Do You Treat Pests and Homes?

This depends on many factors such as the type of the pest infestation and their locations. Our treatments usually focus on the locations where pests live, hide, and breed.
There are usually two types of treatments: internal and external. Internal treatments are usually applied in places that none will come in contact with while external treatments are applied around your property and at areas where pests may be living and breeding.

Do I Have to Empty the Kitchen Cupboards?

Open food packets and containers are the only things that we may ask to be removed and covered. Our technicians will apply the treatments in certain areas, and they have special covers that can be used when necessary.

How Long Do I have to Wait Before Re-entering My Home After the Service?

This depends usually on the type of pest infestation at your home. In most cases, you do not have to leave your place, but in some cases, your technicians may advise you to stay out of your place and re-enter after a certain period.
It is recommended to leave liquid treatment to dry out before entering the treated area.

When external spray pesticides are applied, all windows and external doors must be closed while internal treatments that include applying fine mist pesticides such as flea treatments require leaving the property for a while until the treatments dry out completely.

My Home Is Always Clean, Why Do I Still See Pests and Insects?

Just like humans and animals, pests and insects need food, water, and shelter and they do their best to find all of them no matter how clean you keep your place.

The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide technicians will provide you with effective recommendations to minimize the risk of having pests and insects moving around your place such as closing gaps and openings in window frames and doors, trimming tall trees that may give pests access to the roof, and removing food sources.

What Should I Do If I Noticed a Pest and Don’t Know Its Type?

Some pests do not cause any harm while others can be highly aggressive and cause terrible consequences. If you noticed a pest and you are not sure about its type, The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Team is here for you!

In addition, it is highly recommended to stay away if you do not know the type of the pest and avoid spraying it with chemical products since it may make it more aggressive and lead to a painful bite or severe damages to your property.
If you or anyone of your family members or employees suffer from a bite or sting, apply the following steps immediately.

  • Wash the affected area with water and soap.
  • Apply antiseptic if you have any.
  • Use a cold pack to reduce the pain and prevent swelling.
  • If the person is a child or someone who developed an allergic reaction, he/she should be taken to the nearest hospital immediately.

What Should I Do If I Find Termites at My Place?

Termites are dangerous and can cause severe damages to your property. It is an unsettling experience to have termites at your place. If you see any signs of a termite infestation, you should do the following.

  • Do not do anything that may disturb them.
  • Put things back as they were.
  • Do not overreact. Termites will not cause severe damages overnight. It is important to stay calm to handle the situation well.
  • Do not use any chemicals or try to spray them. A termite colony can include millions of them and trying to spread a few will only make the situation harder to manage for the pest control technician.
  • Contact The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Team to help you get rid of the infestation properly.

How Often Should I Get Pest Control Done?

The frequency of pest inspections and treatments varies depending on many factors such as the type of pests you have, the surrounding environment, and the type of treatment plan used at the first visit.
It is always better to prevent pest infestation before it starts. Besides, damages caused by pests and insects are not covered by home insurance.
The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide technicians will inform you about when you should have your place treated and contact you when the appointment is due.

Do I Need to Prepare for Treatment?

The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Team will discuss with you any required preparation before their visit. You may be asked to do certain things to help us get the necessary access to the areas that should be treated. The preparations vary depending on the type of treatment and whether it is outside or inside the house.

Every situation is different, and we prefer to have this conversation after inspecting your place. However, rest assured, you will not need to turn your home upside down.

The Local Guys – Pest Control Adelaide Team will make the inspection and treatment processes smoother than expected. We are here for you!
