Commercial Pest Control Services

Commercial Pest Control Services

Commercial pest control services have different needs than residential especially if they have kitchens. Residential pest services should be conducted annually as part of general maintenance and upkeep of a property as we are aware that household insurance does not cover the damage that termites cause. The old saying “prevention is better than cure” should be ringing in anyone’s ears as the cost of the treatment far outweighs the cost of the cure.

We at A1 Pest Control Canberra accommodate our clients by working outside their trading hours as they have special requirements that would interfere with their day-to-day business such as:

  • Dental practice
  • Aged home facilities
  • Hotels
  • Childcare centres
  • Schools
  • Unit blocks
  • Restaurants


RECOMMENDATIONS

Commercial Pest Control that have kitchens that serve food need to be on top of their cleanliness at all times to keep pests at bay. It’s recommended that pest control be undertaken every 3 months to stop the breeding cycle.

On the initial inspection the walk around by the pest control managers looks in cool rooms, bench areas both on the top to the floor with special attention looking at stoves fans and grills where fat and oils spill. With a checklist he thoroughly looks, reports and then gives a recommendation of the areas that need cleaning or repaired to deter pests.

Usually in food court areas where there are a number of food areas if the pest control is only done on one food restaurant the pests will be hunted into the next-door neighbours food eatery – where possible all food properties get treated at the same time.

If a clean up has taken place we would go back in and make a list of products and quantities of chemicals that we are using to give to the health inspector should he visit he can see that commercial property is doing everything possible to keep the property pest free.

Where there are child care centres we treat on a weekend while there are no children around also dental practices. The aim of A1 Pest Control Canberra is that we work to service the customer if we can do anything for you or you need advice please contact Bob 0407 065 413 or email us at bob@a1pestcontrolcanberra.com.au

In the photo shown is unusual bee swarm taken of my brother from pest control Sydney. Bees don’t usually land on grassy areas in the open.

When he came to the the Sydney address he found the bee hive was located on the far left side of the tree, about the middle. The home owner was really lucky as she was mowing the lawn, and only caught sight of the bees at the last moment.

Unfortunately my brother was not as as lucky and got stung by a bee that found an entrance under his protective gear!

Spider Control

Spider ControlLooking for professional spider control? Australia is home to numerous species of spiders, and there’s no shortage of them in most Aussie back yards.

Many are relatively harmless, some will give you a nasty bite, and others like the Red Back, the Funnel Web and the White Tailed Spider are capable of making the recipient of the bite quite ill.

There aren’t too many of us that like spiders, so whether they’re harmless or not, it’s safe to say that most of us would prefer that all varieties of spiders stayed well away from our home!

Your local pest control expert can assist you with this by treating your home once a year to deter spiders. If you have young children or you’re frightened of spiders, annual spider control may already be your habit however there may be some more things you can do to make your home less inviting to spiders:

  • Avoid storing or stacking things up against the outside walls of your home. You may have noticed that Red Backs in particular like to hide behind things. When you have a tidy up to clear these items, wear gloves and move items with caution.
  • If you have a garage or shed, keep it tidy and clean – spiders like to build webs in between or behind items so stacks of boxes and unused items can be an ideal environment. Spiders seem to prefer peace and quiet so a nice dark, infrequently used garden shed makes the perfect home. Consider having a spring clean!
  • Spiders eat other insects so taking steps to control other insect populations around the home may also help. If you have a problem with other insects, speak to your pest controller for advice.
  • In between spider control treatments, consider using a surface spray in the areas you know spiders like to frequent.
  • Ensure fly screens are properly fitted to your windows, and if you don’t have fly screens, consider investing in them – open windows and loose or torn fly screens are an easy entry point for spiders.
  • Spiders aren’t always easy to get rid of – they have millions of years of evolution on their side and appear to be quite intelligent! But persistence and diligence can pay off keeping the area outside your home free from clutter, regularly cleaning behind outdoor furniture, and calling out the pest controller once a year will help to minimize the number of spiders you see around your home.

If you don’t want to be invaded by this summer, speak to us about spider control now.

Call Bob on 0407 065 413 or send us a message if you have a problem with spiders or need spider treatment.

Flea Control

 Flea Control

Flea Control

Have you got fleas at your place? If you’ve already attempted to rid your home of fleas and haven’t been successful you may need to arrange a professional flea control treatment.

Don’t be too surprised fleas are one of the hardest insects for the householder to eradicate themselves due to their complex breeding cycle.

You may also be surprised to know that you don’t have to have pets in the house for a flea infestation to occur – adult fleas still at the cocoon stage can remain dormant in the cocoon for several months, particularly in carpet in an unoccupied home.

Any activity, including the arrival of new occupants, can drive the fleas to exit the cocoon in search of food.

If you do have pets, fleas may be a frequent problem but there are things you can do to help minimize the problem easily:

  • Consult with your veterinary regarding the most effective methods of flea control for your pets;
  • Take the necessary steps to drive away all the fleas that have chosen to reside in the bedding material being used by your pet.
  • If the problem persists, you might as well dispose off of the old bedding and replace it but don’t do this until after you have taken steps to remove the fleas from your pets and from other areas in the home, or the new bedding may quickly become infested.
  • If you used a vacuum cleaner on a flea-infested carpet, make sure to properly dispose off of the vacuum cleaner bag as fleas and eggs will be present
  • Flea ‘bombs’ are available for purchase from any supermarket; however, they may not be an appropriate flea control solution if the problem is severe or has recurred despite this treatment.
  • You should also think about extending your treatment to outdoor shady areas where your pets often spend time as these areas may be harbouring fleas.
  • If you are having a problem with fleas it’s important to tackle the problem quickly. Fleas are more than a nuisance they are blood sucking parasites that are capable of transmitting tapeworm.

Fleas – where did they come from?

Fleas may have entered your home via any one of a number of means, even if your pets have never had fleas before, for example:

You may have brought bedding, carpet or other items into your home that contained flea eggs or cocooned adult fleas. Your pet may have sat or lay down in a place in your yard, at the local dog park, or elsewhere where fleas were present;

If you don’t have a pet, the previous occupant of your new home may have had one. Of course, how they got there may not be your biggest concern at this point! If you’re being eaten alive, speak to your local pest controller about professional flea control.

Cockroach Management

Cockroach Management

Cockroach ManagementAre you searching for cockroach management? In the country, these insects perform a useful role in the eco-system but in the populated suburbs, some species are just pests.

Nobody likes to see cockroaches and you may have noticed that a percentage of people become extremely alarmed when they see them on opening cupboard doors etc. Cockroaches can carry a range of dangerous bacteria including Salmonella, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus. They may also be capable of carrying viruses such as the poliovirus.

It’s because of the capacity of cockroaches to carry and spread disease that Cockroach management is just as important in the home as it is in a food or restaurant outlet.

What Diseases do Cockroaches Spread?

Cockroaches are scavengers. Not only do they feed on discarded rubbish and dead animals, they also enter sewers to scavenge. They ingest bacteria while eating, and collect it on their body while moving.

As they eat and move about they regurgitate and expel faeces, leaving bacteria behind. When they travel around your kitchen and investigate the food packets in your cupboard, they may be leaving harmful bacteria behind and when you touch the surface of pick up something they have walked on, you may come into contact with those bacteria.

Tips to Discouraging Cockroaches:

  • Ensure that food is sealed and crumbs or residue not left on benches, the floor or in the pantry.
  • Empty rubbish immediately from the home and keeping outside bins with a tightly fitted lid.
  • Wash all pet bowls and do not leave food in the bowl over night.
  • Storing old books, magazines or other items that aren’t in use in well sealed plastic containers rather than cardboard boxes, or just stacking them in a storage cupboard.
  • Regularly clean behind and beneath kitchen appliances like the microwave and fridge, and remove the crumbs daily from your toaster.
  • Using a surface spray.

Whether you’re a restaurant operator or a home owner, the sight of a cockroach scurrying across the floor – or even belly up dead in the cupboard – is something you’d prefer not to see; and it’s certainly something that your visitors or customers don’t want to see.

But sometimes, despite your best efforts in regard to hygiene, cockroaches still appear. This may sometimes be the result of unhygienic conditions at nearby premises, or conversely, the result of a recent pest control or cockroach management treatment nearby that has sent the local cockroaches off in search of new food sources.

If you’d like to speak to a professional about cockroach management you can call us today for more information or to arrange a pest inspection.

You can contact us by calling 0407 065 413 or emailing Bob@A1pestcontrolcanberra.com.au
