Our expert pest controllers use a high effective natural and organic pest deterrent known as Pyrethrum. It is used in the high tech agricultural industry and exported around the world. We use it in areas which are high sensitive to chemicals such as children play areas or backyard organic gardens.
What is it?
Pyrethrum is found naturally in the environment from the plant pyrethrum daisy, Tanacetum cinerariifolium, which is part of the Asteraceae family. The pyrethrum if found in the flower head and the substance then works to kill insects. While organic, it needs to be used by trained experts, when applied correctly is safe to use near humans, pets, kitchens, restaurants, food processing factories and environments where family members are allergic to harsh human made chemicals. Being organic, it breaks down rapidly especially in sunlight making it non-harmful to the environment.
How does it work?
Pyrethrum disrupts the normal function of cockroaches, spiders, flies and similar crawling insects by affecting the central nervous system. The insect loses its normal ability to send messages to muscles to move. In low concentrations, Pyrethrum creates a behavioural reaction known as avoidance reaction which results in the insects fleeing from the area. When used in the backyard, Pyrethrum causes female mosquitoes to lose focus and the ability to bite and extract blood from humans. Increasing the concentration results in the insects losing the normal behavioural patterns all together resulting in the insects being flushed out from their habitat. Increasing the concentration by a trained pest controller will result in the insects being knocked out and killed. Download the Natural Pest Control Data Sheet

Importantly, these are natural, family and pet friendly bug control methods you can apply now without any cost!
Step 1: Remove water sources
Your first step is to investigate your home to find where bugs may be entering and hiding. You should also check for possible food and water sources. Two areas you’ll want to be sure to check are under your sink in the kitchen and behind your refrigerator. If water is collecting in these areas, this will provide a drinking ground for rats and cockroaches to thrive. Every living rodent or spider needs water. Remove the water source by drying water condensation and getting any leaking pipes fixed.
Step 2: Declutter
If you have piles of unnecessary or unneeded items laying around your house, it’s time to get rid of them. This may include stacks of old magazines and newspapers, old shoes in the closet, and any other clutter that you don’t need. These things give bugs a place to hide, not to mention material for building nests. It is also harder to clean around areas of clutter, resulting in an increased food supply for many types of insects. Cardboard is especially attractive to bugs, so get rid of any empty boxes you may have lying around.
Go through our house and gather up items that you are no longer using or no longer need. Either sell or donate these things, and then organise what belongings you have left. All storage should be at least an inch off the floor and away from the walls. Keep food in tightly latched plastic containers, especially pet food.
Step 3: Clean
In this step you remove any markings and droppings left by insects, as well as getting rid of their food sources. Vacuum, mop, and thoroughly wash all of the cabinets, countertops, and other surfaces in your home, especially under the refrigerator, oven, and kitchen sink. Use your vacuum attachments to make the job of reaching into those corners and crevices easier. Once your initial cleaning is done, continue to clean regularly to keep your house free of food and water sources. Wipe up crumbs and spills immediately, wash your dirty dishes right away, and empty your garbage before you go to bed. Leave pet bowls empty overnight and refill them in the morning. Keep your drains covered when they’re not being used as well.
If you’re facing an infestation of cockroaches, be sure to sweep or vacuum under furniture and in other hiding places to remove any dead cockroaches. These can decay into roach dust, which may trigger allergies and asthma attacks in some people.
Step 4: Close the Entrances
Next, you will need to seal the entrances pests use to get into your house. These are commonly located in kitchens and bathrooms, where pipes enter your house. Concentrate your efforts in the kitchen and bathroom, and work your way outward from there. Use cement, plaster, or caulk to seal the cracks and gaps where pests enter, and apply weather stripping around your windows and doors.
Step 5: Baits
If you’ve done all of the above steps and your vermin problem has not been resolved in a matter of weeks, it may be time to use some bug baits. These kill pests by poisoning them, and therefore should be used with caution. Only resort to this method once all of the above steps have been taken, and keep the baits out of reach of your pets and children.

How to choose a vermin expert
There are some times when you might have the misfortune to discover an infestation going on in your home and you will want to get rid of the vermin as soon as you can. When you are rushing you might jump in for the first bug specialist that you see without even giving it a second thought. Although you have every right to be in a hurry, it is important that you spend some time to find out more about the pest expert so that you are sure you will get the best possible services at a reasonable price. There are a few things that you should definitely discuss with the company that you want to hire so that you can avoid any bad decisions that you will later regret.
When you are consider hiring a fumigation expert, the first thing that you should do is talk to some of the people you know and see if they can recommend you one. Ask around your friends, colleagues and your family if they have previously used such services and if they can recommend you a vermin expert. It is highly important that you do not go making deals with the first company that you see, but rather first find people who have used it and ask them what they think. If you do not have anyone to ask, or you are afraid of talking to people about your little misfortune (which is a lot more common than you might think), then you should look around forums and other places where you can find feedback from any previous customers of the company.
Another thing that should be a factor when you choose a insect eradication company is the type of chemicals that they will operate with during the treatment process. You might be highly sensitive to some chemicals, or they might be using ones that are not safe for any pets or small children. It is a good idea to talk to your doctor about the chemicals in order to find out if there is any chance that they might cause some harm to you and your family.
Followup child and pest friendly treatment
The duration of the whole treatment, including any follow ups and guarantees is also quite important when dealing with pests. This is why you should require of the expertise of an experience bug expert to give you more information about all of these activities. The time that is required by the company for the process might be of
Although there is no denying that you have to hire a pest controller as soon as you see any signs of an infestation you should not go about it blindly. By finding out more information about the company from past customers as well as the services they offer and other things that should be listed on their website, you will be ensured that the services you pay for will be worth it. Suffering from a bug infestation can really be a cause of frustration and stress.
