Most common pest control questions answered
Pest Inspection Sunshine Coast
Of course the first question we are asked is always why anyone needs to use a professional pest control company — and how often. The answer is that we identify pest problems using a science based approach and apply solutions designed specifically for you, although many of our treatments are also used in hospitals and restaurants. Everyone on our professional team of Sunshine Coast pest control technicians has gone through an extensive, comprehensive training programme and is able to assess, plan, implement and then continue to monitor your situation and eliminate all pests possible. We use the right tools, the right equipment and the right environmentally friendly and safe pesticide in the correct quantities. Our researchers keep abreast of all updates, and at Little Critters Pest Control we use the most recently released chemicals in both pest control techniques and technologies. Products are selected on stringent criteria for safety and efficiency to ensure quality care for your home and our environment. We also recommend ways to avoid future problems. An annual inspection for termites can usually spot any other nuisance that may arise too.
Are the treatments safe and do they smell?
We use the latest and safest treatments, many of which are also used in hospitals, schools and food production, and will explain our procedures to you before doing anything. We take into account and are especially aware of anyone who is pregnant or who suffers from allergies or asthma. The treatments are odourless.
Do I really need regular termite inspections if I have not noticed anything untoward?
Termites are one of the most destructive pests on the Sunshine Coast and surveys say that one in three homes will be affected. Home insurance policies do not cover the damage. There are several different treatments available, depending on the level of infestation. Properties should be inspected at least once every 12 months.
Is it true that cockroaches can bring on asthma attacks?
Cockroach allergens act like dust mites and can activate an allergic reaction in the bronchial tubes. The American Lung Association believes that cockroaches not only trigger asthma attacks, but may also cause asthma in young children.
Are mosquitoes a health hazard on the Sunshine Coast?
Mosquitoes are a health hazard everywhere. They carry many diseases, including dengue fever, malaria and yellow fever. Ross River virus is Australia’s main mosquito-borne disease and there is no vaccine.
