Finding the best pest control company in Canberra to suit your needs isn’t always easy. The problem is that Canberra is home to many pest control companies that claim to be the best. So how do you decide? In this blog post, we provide readers with some questions to ask themselves and any pest control company in Canberra.
Does the pest control company have an Environmental Authorisation?
A pest control company in Canberra must hold an Environmental Authorisation from the local Environment Protection Authority (EPA). This authorises the pest control company to use commercial pest control chemicals in Canberra.
Important Note: to treat termites, a pest control company in Canberra requires an additional Environmental Authorisation.
Is the pest control company insured?
A reputable pest control company in Canberra will have Public Liability insurance, which covers claims for property damage and personal injury. If you’re unsure about a pest control company in this area, ask to see an insurance certificate.
Does the pest control company offer a wide range of services?
The best pest control companies in Canberra offer a wide range of services. Most pest control companies in Canberra treat ants, cockroaches, rats, mice, wasps, spiders, moths, carpet beetles, silverfish, bed bugs, fleas, earwigs, millipedes, and centipedes. Some of the more established pest control companies deal with termites and possums as well.
Is the pest control company a local business?
Locally owned and operated pest control companies tend to have a vested interest in their community. Consequently, profits are more likely to stay in the Canberra / ACT economy.
How responsive is the pest control company?
You can sometimes judge a pest control company by first impressions. Was the phone answered by a friendly and helpful voice? Was your enquiry handled professionally? If you had to leave a message, did the pest control company get back to you promptly? Given how many pest control companies are in Canberra, the power is in your hands!
Does the pest control company treat termites in Canberra?
If you’re looking for termite inspection or treatment services in Canberra, a pest control company must hold the relevant Environmental Authorisation (see first question). Many of the larger and more established pest control companies in Canberra treat termites.
Does the pest control company handle possums?
Some of the more established pest control companies in Canberra are authorised to “catch and release” possums. Although possums are protected by native animal laws, they become a nuisance if they enter a roof. A pest control company that evicts possums will install a one-way door or a cage trap to (hopefully) solve the problem.
Can the pest control company answer this trick question?
The trick question to ask a pest control company in Canberra is this: can a single insecticide kill all ant species? The correct answer is “no” (no single insecticide kills all ant species).
Is Canberra Pest Control Group one of the best pest control companies in Canberra?
Yes, we’d like to think so. Canberra Pest Control Group is a full-service pest control company that’s fully insured and authorised to treat termites and evict possums. What’s more, Canberra Pest Control Group is locally owned and operated.
