Keeping Critters at Bay: How Often Do You Need Pest Control?

We often get asked this question, and the answer isn’t one-size-fits-all. It depends on a few things. Like what kind of pests, you’re dealing with – ants, cockroaches, spiders, maybe even some sneaky rats. Plus, how bad the infestation is and where your place is situated. If you’re surrounded by greenery or tucked away in a wooded area, pests might be more of a concern.

How Often Should Pest Control Be Done for Residential and Commercial Properties?

Residential Properties (Every 6 Months)

For homes – whether it’s a house, apartment, unit, or townhouse – we generally recommend scheduling pest control every 6 months. If you’re already dealing with unwanted visitors, we’ll tackle them first and then set up a plan for regular check-ups every 6 or 12 months to keep things under control.

Commercial Properties (3 – 12 Months)

For commercial properties, the same logic applies: to proactively prevent pests, we recommend pest control every 6 to 12 months. However, if your business involves handling food like restaurants or other consumable goods, stricter measures are necessary. In such cases, we recommend more frequent pest control, ideally every 3 months, with a minimum of every 6 months to keep up to standards with health and safety regulations.

How Much Does Pest Control Cost?

The cost of pest control services can vary depending on several key factors. These include the size of your property, the specific type of pest requiring treatment, and the severity of the infestation. While pricing may differ between providers, prioritising quality and effectiveness over cost is crucial for long-term success.

To provide you with an accurate quote, our experienced technicians will typically ask a series of questions about your situation. In some cases, an on-site inspection may be necessary to fully assess the scope of the problem. This allows us to tailor a treatment plan that is specific to your needs and ensures the most effective solution for lasting pest control.
