Calling in the professionals – When is it time to contact pest control?

22 Jun 2016

How can we Help?

It’s all too easy to try to deal with it yourself when you discover a pest problem around your home. After all, there are lots of products on the market which promise to deal with the issue. However, these products often don’t treat the problem as effectively as promised and you could still find yourself with an ongoing problem. You could also be using the wrong product for the pest and exposing yourself and your family unnecessarily to chemicals.

Rather than leaving it too late and risking an infestation, it’s important to know when the time is right to call on pest control.

When to get professional pest control solutions

  • You’re spotting pests around the house – It’s normal to see the occasional pest but you might be noticing an increase in numbers around the home. You could lay cockroach baits under furniture but still see cockroaches scuttling away when you turn on the light. Perhaps you’ve tried home treatments but it’s not making a difference. This is a definite sign that it’s time to get pest control in to take a look at your home.
  • You can see damage in the home – Although some points are merely an annoyance, there are some pests which can cause serious damage. Pests such as rodents and carpet beetles can be very destructive but are easy to get rid of with professional help. If you’re seeing the start of damage caused by pests, such as damaged textiles or chewed electrical insulation, call in pest control before the damage gets worse.
  • You neighbours have had an infestation – Whether it’s rats, cockroaches or any other form of household pests, if your neighbours have had an infestation dealt with then it’s also a good idea for your house to be inspected to see if you’re at risk or infested. This is particularly important if you live in an apartment or in close proximity housing.
  • You’ve gone a year without an inspection – Even if you can’t see signs of pests, it’s a good idea to have a pest control expert come to your house on an annual basis to do a routine inspection. This can help stop any problems before they arise, such as the beginning of termite damage, and you can have preventative and barrier treatments put in place.

What our Clients say

We had an appointment scheduled very quickly and easily with Bug Busters. Aaron was on time and a true professional. He was knowledgable, open, and explained the whole process easily and clearly. Gave us a guarantee that our problems would be solved and if there were any future issues he would attend to them himself with the utmost expedience. Aaron was a real pleasure to work with and i feel significantly more comfortable after working with him. Would recommend their services to anyone who needed them.

Chey Bowers

I found the young man named Deryn who came to deal with our rodent problem to be extremely polite, personable and knowledgeable. He was on time and friendly and knew a lot about the behaviours of the rat species. I would highly recommend Bug busters and will definately them for future pest problems when they arise.

Sarah Garrett

Bugbusters installed termite traps around my house and shed many years ago. Every 3 months the traps are inspected for any termite activity. At intervals the house, ceiling and shed are are checked for termites. They have also dealt with wasp infestations and put rat baits in the ceiling.. Their operatives have always been helpful and friendly. I would recommend Bugbusters to anyone.

Margo Beilby

I have used Bug Busters on a number of occassions over the last 15 years. The last time only a few days ago.. Derryn was absolutely client focussed; professional; neat and cleaned up impeccably my jarrah floors that had just been re varnished. I have no hesitation to recommend this company.. Five stars from me. Paul Vic Park.
