If this is the first time to this page you are no doubt looking for a pest control company that can help get rid of your pests and also maintain your property with regular termite management and general pest treatments for both domestic and commercial properties.
There are many common pests that are unwanted and find their way into our home or property the pests can bite or sting you and in some cases especially in food areas can make you very sick and if you have an allergic reaction and can have you fighting for your life if you have been stung.
Pest control is something that is needed especially around spring and the warmer months where pests have been dormant over winter and the first signs of spring they come out in their numbers where many have a quick breeding cycle and where you end up with an infestation.
- Paper wasp
- European wasp
- Carpet moths
- Bed bugs
Pests that are a big concern is a pest called the European Wasp which have their hive built under the eaves or they can build underground in garden beds. Why are these pests a concern to pets and small children? Because they may get too close to the hive as they are curious and this signals to the EW that the hive is under attack and not just one but the whole hive will attack the person. What is more concerning is that each European Wasp is capable of stinging 9 times.
A1 Pest Control Canberra wears a bee suit and hood when treating for either bees and European Wasps and the technicians still get stung. Stay away from hives and call in the professionals to get rid of the nest.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU NEED PEST CONTROL SERVICES?
We recommend at least once per year but if you have never had pest control done before to get better results book in twice a year for the first year and then annual pest control treatments.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU NEED A TERMITE INSPECTION?
Termite inspections should be done on an annual basis due to the fact that the Queen Termite produces 30,000 live termites a day and when the termite soldiers go looking for timber they can travel up to 200 metres away from the nest in search of their food.
Many property owners are not aware that they even have termites eating away at their biggest asset their home, as termites eat the timber from the inside out and they do not see the termites until they go through the floor or they touch a beam and it crumbles in their hand. Termite damage can run into many thousands of dollars none of which is covered by insurance.
TERMITE MANAGEMENT IS RECOMMENDED
- Visual inspection
- Thermal Imaging
- Pre-construction termite barriers
- Renovation termite barriers
- Physical and chemical termite barriers
We install all barriers according to the Australian Standards: Australian Standard 3660.1 – 2014 Termite Management – New Building Work is referenced in the Building Code of Australia (BCA). It is part of a trilogy of standards including Part 2 that deals with existing buildings and Part 3 that deals with assessment for termite management systems.
