If I’ve already had termite treatment, do I still need to have a yearly inspection?

Yes, because there is no guarantee that termites won’t return. They may still be able find a way to breach the treatment and physical barriers.

How often does a termite barrier need to be replaced?

Every year for termite baiting and monitoring systems and every 6-8 years for Termidor. It also depends of the type of barrier that you have installed.

Creepy crawly questions

Can you remove ants with a spider spray?

No, because ants and spiders are sensitive to different chemicals. Once the aerosol reaches the spider, it is immobilised straight away. To destroy an ant colony, the poison must not immediately immobilise the ants, but instead be collected by worker ants and carried back to the colony underground.

Should I eliminate a spider or ant outbreak first?

The spider infestation as it is the easiest and fastest to control.

Are we allowed to be at home during the spider spray?

For outdoor treatments, you can be at home provided that you keep windows and door shut. For indoor treatments, depending on the weather, you’ll need to leave the house for two to three hours.

Is cockroach spray the same as spider spray?

For regular cockroaches, yes. For German cockroaches you’ll need something stronger and spray more extensively, as they are clever at hiding in tight spots and less affected by spider sprays

Should I spray pesticides inside and outside?

If the pest problem is located indoors, you’ll only need to spray inside.

How often should I apply pesticide spray?

You should start applying these in the lead up to the warmer months of the year.

Rodents, possums and birds

Does rodent bait poison other pests?

Secondary poisoning is very unlikely as we use the highest quality bait stations.

Do you harm the possums?

No. We follow government regulations and safely relocate them in a new home.

How can I tell if I have possums or rodents in the roof?

Rodents are noisy during the day and night as they are always active, whereas possums tend to be active just before dawn and after dusk.

If I have rats and mice, can I just leave them be?

No. We do not recommend ignoring them because they can breed quickly, spread germs and cause extensive damage to your home and electrical wiring.

How do you control a pest bird outbreak?

We normally use gutter mesh, but if an outbreak is severe, or you have a commercial property, we can apply chemical traps. If necessary, we have a bird shooting license to quickly eliminate the problem.

Had a terrible cockroach outbreak in our holiday apartment in Surfers Paradise and 000 Pest Control got onto the job at a time that suited us and even came back to top up the insect gel. Haven't seen a live roach in weeks.Excellent customer service!

The young gentleman who came out was punctual, patient with all the questions fired at him about rodents, helpful and efficient. Haven't heard any mouse noises or seen any mice since he came. Thank you, hoping it stays that way🤣
