What do you spray/treat?
Our qualified technicians will treat the surfaces that get the most insect traffic. Inside this includes the skirtings, window sills, ceilings and under furniture and bedding. Outside is different – all external surfaces are treated (brickwork, cladding, render, guttering, downpipes, eaves, fascia etc)
What is the product you use?
We use a Pyrethroid which is colourless, odourless and enviro friendly. It is applied in a fine mist spray, from a hand pumped or electric backpack.
How long does it take?
Time varies depending on size of the house. A standard 3 bedroom house may take an hour. A large 5 bedroom house, 2 farm sheds and a dairy may take up to 3 hours.
How does it work?
Any fly, mosquito or spider that touches a treated area, gets a dose and will die. The size of the insect governs how quickly it dies – mozzies die quickly, flies and blowies can take an hour and large spiders may take 24-48 hours.
Will all my insects be gone?
The treatment is NOT a repellant. There is no such thing. You will still have insects around your property but once they come into contact with a treated surface they will get a dose and die.
How safe is it?
Very safe. Our product is 30 times less toxic than the most widely used product in pest control – bifenthrin. Our product is biodegradable and non-accumulative.
What should I do before the sprayer arrives?
We will email you our “Are you ready checklist” – a simple document with a few simple steps to follow. The main things to ensure are covered are: toothbrushes, pillows, kettle, toaster, babies dummies… Goldfish don’t like our product, and should be covered or removed while the treatment takes place.
How long do I need to be out of the house?
Not long at all. Obviously whilst we complete the job and then drying time. Drying time will vary depending on weather conditions. On a hot day it could be 20 minutes or a cold day could take up to 1 hour. We will let you know though.
Is it safe for my pets?
Apart from fish, Yes! Pyrethroid is safe for pets, but we recommend they be out of the house until the treatment is finished and dry. We also suggested covering pet food and removing water bowls.
How much does it cost for treatment?
Our base rate is $148 (inclusive of GST) – this includes 5L of our spray and would typically cover a 16sq house. Our price then goes up $16 per litre thereafter.
In a nutshell you only pay for what we use!
Do you have a loyalty program?
You betcha! It’s called our Green Rewards Program. Book a friend or new customer and accumulate points and dollars off your next treatment.
Do you offer sponsorship for schools & clubs?
YES! Each booking that aligns with your club/school we donate $10 back. Clubs/schools need to call office to register. For more information call 1800 815 730 or send us an email.
Do you have specialised treatments for other pests?
Our additional specialised treatments are for cockroaches, wasps, rodents, and ants. Just ask us and we will tell you if we can help or not. These jobs attract an additional cost.
What do I do after treatment?
Wipe over any food prep areas with a damp cloth or hot soapy water. Brush the cobwebs down about 2-3 weeks after treatment. Wash or throw out any coverings that have been used.
Do not hose down your house!
