  1. What is pest control and is it neccessary?
  2. Pest control is the removable of undesirable insects and pests from your home or workplace. Pest control is neccessary because pests can cause structural damage to your home or work premisis and can also spread disease.

  3. How often should I have a pest control treatment done?
  4. Regularly, at least once a year. Shorter periods may be recommended, according to environment conditions.

  5. How do I prepare for my pest controller?
  6. Preparation requirements depend on what type of pest treatment is being administered. General preparation can include:

    • Remove all consumable items
    • Clear all floor surfaces
    • Close all doors to wardrobes, drawers etc

  7. Will treatment harm my children, pets or unborn child?
  8. We use the safest, most modern materials available and will not carry out any work which might cause a problem. We ask that pregnant women and any children less that 4 years of age be absent while treatment is being carried out and for 4 hours afterwards. This is just to be extra careful in case any allergy-type reactions occur. This is especially the case for anyone who suffers from asthma, this is recommended to avoid triggering an asthma attack.

    Animals must be kept off treated surfaces until they are dry – usually 30 minutes.

  9. What should I do if I think I have found termites?
    • DO NOT disturb the termites!
    • Contact Pioneer Pest Control immediately
    • DO NOT spray the Termites with fly spray or douse with kerosene or petrol
    • DO NOT remove the damaged timbers

    By disturbing the Termites you can cause them to retreat and re–appear to attack elsewhere in your home. Disturbance can also minimise the opportunity to eliminate the colony (remember the colony may not be on your property).

  10. What can I do to prevent a termite infestation?
  11. Yes! Remove any scrap wood from directly around or under your property, and avoid erecting wooden structures that directly touch the soil to minimise the risk of Termite infestations. Annual termite inspections are recommended.

  12. Will the pest control treament stain my carpet or other surfaces?
  13. No, the treatment we use does not stain. It’s a water based residual spray that doesn’t contain strong solvents.

  14. Do I need to wash everything after the pest control treatment?
  15. There is no need to wash utensils or surfaces once the treatment is carried out.
