QUESTIONS

What exactly is pest control?

Pest control is the location, identification and effective removal of undesirable insects and pests from your home or workplace.

Is it really necessary?

Without effective and regular pest control, you risk damage to the structure of your home or business. You may also be putting the health of your family and work colleagues at risk, as some pests can quickly spread disease.

Can't I take care of these pests myself?

Supermarket or hardware pest treatments can be helpful in eliminating the few, visible and 'regular' pests you may encounter around your home. Only a professional pest control treatment will properly identify, treat and remove the pests at the source - to provide immediate and ongoing peace of mind.

How often should I have a pest control treatment done?

You should have your property comprehensively treated at least once per year. Many factors may require you to have a treatment done more often - such as the environment you live in, the age and construction of the property, the proximity to other risk factors, pets and other animals etc.

Do I need to do any preparation for your visit?

This largely depends on the type of treatment you have booked - and our highly qualified team will clearly explain if any preparation needs to be done.

Some simple items may include removing food and drink from areas being treated, clearing out cluttered spaces, lifting items from the floor or something as simple as closing some doors and drawers.

What should I do if I think I have found evidence of termites?

The safest course of action is always to call Aim High Pest Control. Disturbing the nest, spraying them, or trying to remove them is likely to aggravate and spread the problem. It is best to call in a professional and try to keep the termite nest intact until it can be properly dealt with.

How do I prevent termites?

There are some simple steps you can take, such as removing scrap timbers from around your house, or ensuring any wooden structures you may have are built up off the ground (so timber is not meeting the soil).

Ultimately - your best course of action is an annual termite inspection.

Will I need to leave the property during treatment?

This largely depends on the treatment that is taking place, and our friendly team will advise you on this at your time of booking. Please always ask us to address any concerns you may have - we are more than happy to answer any and all questions you may have!
