FAQ’s

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
