This is a tricky question to answer! The frequency of the pest control inspection depends on many factors. This includes:
In general, you should get your property inspected for termites and other pests and insects annually to minimise the risks of pest infestations. More frequent inspections may be required. The Local Guys – Pest Control Melbourne team will inform you when you should have your place inspected again to ensure your property is kept safe and pest free!
We understand that pest infestations can occur when you least expect it and may come at unfortunate times. For this reason, The Local Guys – Pest Control aim to have fair and reasonable prices. The pricing of your treatment depends on the service being conducted, the treatment plan you select and the severity of the infestation.
We provide our clients with the estimated price for our treatment services in addition to a free service period guarantee. We explain everything in detail to our clients to make sure that they get the best services for their money.
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 Melbourne Team will explain to you all the treatment options and the best treatment option for your property’s problem.
Yes, the products we use are 100% safe. We use only the best, Australian approved products in the industry. We provide services to hospitals, schools, restaurants, childcare centres, so our practices must be safe!
Our technicians are trained to take extra safety precautions to ensure the safety of your children, pets and even your gardens!
The Local Guys – Pest Control Melbourne team will discuss and walk you through the whole process regarding your treatment plan prior to conducting any work. We want you to be fully informed of the process so you have peace of mind!
No. In general, most treatments do not have any odor. We would inform you if we used a certain treatment that has an odor.
The Local Guys – Pest Control Melbourne team uses only best treatment procedures for your pest control concerns. Once the treatment is over, the severity of the infestation will start to reduce during the following few days.
It is totally normal to find some pests moving around your place after the treatment and our experts will explain that to you. You may start to see more pests than you did before. This is because the pests are coming out from their hiding places as they have just been treated, however, they will soon die. If you have had spiders treated, we recommend not wiping away any of the cob webs for a few days as these will have the residue of treatment left on them and will continue to treat the spiders as they return to their webs.
If you believe the pest treatment has not been 100% effective, please contact your technician immediately and they will come back out and retreat the areas of concern (as per the free service period).
No, ‘white ants’ is just another term for termites. White ants is a name given to termites based on their appearance. Termites look similar to ants and are usually a pale brown to a milky white colour. However, termites and ants are completely separate species of insects.
Ants are never white. Termites also have a thicker body than ants.
Yes, they are! In Australia, over 34,000 homes are invaded annually by termites and the damages caused by them cost about $10,000,00 annually. They are a real problem that can cause severe damages to your property if ignored.
Unfortunately, you cannot ignore termites. Ignoring them will not make them go away… and they will not go away on their own.
Unfortunately, no. Nearly all insurance companies exclude termite damages from their insurance policies. The risk of termite damage unpredictable and far too commo, so insurance companies refuse to cover the costs of treating termite infestations or repairing the damages caused from them. This is why we recommend having regular inspections completed to ensure your home is not being damaged by these ‘silent destroyers’. We also recommend having a termite protection system installed as this will also prevent termites from affecting your home.
Detecting termites is not an easy task if you are not a professional pest controller. The Local Guys – Pest Control Melbourne experts know exactly what to look for and where to look. They are highly trained and have the correct equipment to detect termites, in addition to having experience in inspecting termites in a range of conditions.
Our experts report that the owners of the homes that have never had professional termite inspections usually seek professional help after significant damage has already occurred at their properties. Don’t wait until it is too late!
The appearance of results varies depending on the type of pest being treated, the treatment plan used and the severity of the pest concern. However, in most cases, the results appear quickly and last for an extended period of time. The Local Guys – Pest Control Melbourne team’s ongoing follow-up reminders will make sure that your pest concerns are 100% controlled, prevented, and kept out of your place. If pests somehow appear after the treatment plan during your warranty period, The Local Guys – Pest Control Melbourne will come back at no extra charge to retreat your areas of concern.
Baits are more effective because they work on all the pests and insects at your home or business including the ones you do not see. For example, if you have an ant infestation, the ants will take the bait with them to their nests and spread it throughout the entire colony. On the other hand, spray products usually break down fast, and to work effectively, they must be in direct contact with the targeted insects, which is hard to do for the insects you do not see.
The Local Guys – Pest Control Melbourne Team uses both sprays and baits depending on the type and severity of the infestation.
Some pests and insects live and breed outside your home. The Local Guys – Pest Control services are designed to eliminate the infestation where it originates. When we get rid of the pests and insects outside of the property, we prevent them from getting inside.
It is more convenient for our clients when we work outside their properties since they are not required to be home during the treatment process.

Termite swarms exist when a termite colony has become so large that the new reproductive termites leave to start new colonies somewhere else. If you find signs of ‘swarmers’ in and around your property, this is likely sign of a termite infestation. Termites require professional help and the sooner the better! The longer you wait to have a termite inspection and treatment done, the more time you leave for the termites to damage your home.
The good news is… The Local Guys – Pest Control Melbourne Team is here to help!
