How long does pest control take?

Preventative measures for ants, cockroaches, and other typical pests typically require just 30 to 45 minutes of your time. On the other hand, if you’re dealing with an active ant or cockroach infestation, the removal process can be quite extensive, taking anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes or potentially longer, depending on the scale of the infestation.

How much does pest control in Brisbane cost?

If you’re dealing with a pest issue in Brisbane and are curious about the cost of addressing it, you’ll be pleased to know that standard pest control services are quite budget-friendly. When it comes to common pests such as cockroaches, spiders, ants, or rodents, the typical range for the initial treatment cost falls between $165 and $280.

How often should I pest control my house?

For both apartments and houses, we suggest scheduling pest control treatments every twelve months (annually) or even every six months (bi-annually) as a proactive measure against common pests. This regular maintenance is particularly crucial when you’ve recently moved into a new residence. In cases of more severe infestations, it’s advisable to consider quarterly treatments, spanning a duration of 6 to 12 months for effective pest management.

What do pest control companies use inside the house?

Pest control professionals utilize insecticides containing pyrethrin, permethrin, and bifenthrin to specifically target Spiders, Ants, and other common household pests. These chemical agents have the effect of interfering with the nervous system of the insecta, leading to paralysis or fatality. In conjunction with chemical treatments, physical deterrents like adhesive traps may also be deployed to deter Spiders from infiltrating structures. All modern pest control chemicals and procedures are safe and endorsed by Queensland Health and Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA).

Who pays for pest control in a rental property in Queensland?

When you enter into a lease agreement, it falls upon the property owner to manage pest control. However, it’s essential to carefully review the stipulations outlined in the lease contract pertaining to pest control procedures. If this provision is not present, it is advisable to incorporate it into the agreement to avoid potential unforeseen costs down the line. For further information, contact Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) or your real estate agency to discuss your concerns.,the%20actions%20of%20the%20tenant

How do I prepare for pest control?

Regularly dusting, vacuuming, and maintaining a clean home environment greatly facilitates the work of your pest expert. Ensuring that children’s and pet’s toys are stored away, and removing clutter, is essential to prevent the oversight of potential hiding spots for insects.

Should you mop before pest control?

To maximize the effectiveness of your treatment, it’s crucial to ensure that you thoroughly clean your floors before pest control is carried out. This cleaning step will provide a pristine surface, facilitating better adherence of the treatment. Do no mop your floors for 24 hours after the treatment to ensure effecive treatment.


What are the signs of a pest infestation?

Pests can wreak havoc on your property in Brisbane, posing health risks and causing damage. It’s essential to recognize the indications that signify the necessity for expert pest control services. Here are some unmistakable signs to be vigilant for:

  • Droppings: Discovering pest droppings, such as small dark pellets is a clear indication of pest presence in your vicinity. A professional pest manager can identify the species from the droppings visually and density. 
  • Tracks: Pests leave distinct traces, making precise identification crucial for effective pest management. Rub marks, or small dark spots can indiciate the species and potential size of infestation.
  • Odours: Foul or musty odours in your premises could be an indication of pest infestation. Various pests, including rodents, insects, and specific birds, emit distinctive odors that serve as telltale signs.
  • Sightings: Observing pests crawling or flying within your property is an undeniable sign that necessitates professional pest control. Common pests in Brisbane encompass cockroaches, ants, spiders, and silverfish.
  • Nesting: Stumbling upon nests, webs, or remnants of shredded paper or fabric concealed in obscure areas is a conspicuous indicator of pest activity. These nests serve as breeding grounds and require prompt attention.
  • Sounds: If you detect peculiar sounds like scratching, scurrying, or gnawing emanating from your walls or ceilings, it might be an indicator of a potential rodent infestation. Dismissing these noises isn’t advisable, as rodents can induce structural harm and transmit diseases.
