Important Facts About A Current Pest Control Licence
The head technician for Micropest is Gerard, he has over twentyfive years of pest control experience. Ten years in South Australia and Fifthteen in Sydney.
A very important and significant difference between pest control today and pest control twenty five years ago is that to get a full pest control licence it used to take three years to complete. Today you can buy a franchise and a pest control trainer can give you a licence within seven days.
When I started I had to study at TAFE and spend the allocated time being trained by someone with a full licence which was three years. I was very fortunate as the person who trained me was in his late sixties and had been in the industry for over forty years. He was the number one trouble shooter for Flick pest control Adelaide for ten years. I learn't a lot more than most but he did treat me like an apprentice and a general dogs body.
When you first start with pest control industry you generally go through the motions. You don't really think too much about what you doing. But like a fine wine a good pest controller after five or so years starts to think about why and where they are spraying. Generally after spending 10 years in the pest control industry you're expert and you can pest control in your sleep. Twenty five years in the industry and you're at the top of the food chain.
It is very rare to have a pest control man come to your house with over twenty five years of experience. When you telephone Micropest pest control Sydney you will get a pest control operator who has been in the pest control industry for over twenty five years carry out your pest control service.
What is going on recently?
May has arrived and the weather starting to cool down and the leaves on the trees are starting to change colour and drop to the ground. In turn the rats and possums are starting to relocate from outside to inside the nice warm roof and wall cavities. Termites are still the most prevalent pest problem in Sydney at the moment.
1) With all the rain and mild temperatures I have never had so many phone calls for leeches. Words of wisdom on wet days keep your pets inside as much as possible especially on the North Shore of Sydney. My bird was attacked on my balcony two floors up the other day by a leech and we just about lost her. I have removed a number of leeches from my dog as well.
2) Being it the season for holidays please check your hotel room for bed bugs before you stay in the room.
3) Any signs of German cockroaches in your house or apartment please do not spray them as you will spread them throughout your abode. Ring a professional and they will bait them with a cockroach bait.
4) Make sure you use regular effective flea control treatments on your pets to keep the fleas and ticks at bay.Stongly reccomend advantix flea and tick control drops.
5)If you haven't had a termite inspection (pest inspection) for a while it is strongly recommended to get one this year..
6)Words of wisdom from a very experienced Sydney pest control operator, do not attempt to bait your rats with cheap domestic rat bait. Domestic rat bait is very low in toxicity and not very palatable, so the rats don't eat as much. Therefore they have enough energy to make it back home to your roof cavity or wall cavity and die instead of where their water source is. A dead rat in winter can take two months to decompose. The smell over this time is overbearing.Rat control is best left to the proffessionals.

Pest Control Sydney Testimonial of the Month
To Whom It May Concern.
My name is Debra from Epping and I really like to make it known that Micropest Pest Control in Sydney is a very effective, punctual and a honest Sydney pest control company. There is no way in the world I have ever praised any company with such high regard, but in this case I really think its warranted.
You may wonder what's this old duck talking about. I had a case of very bad cockroaches and spiders around the house so I decided to go through the motions of getting a pest control company to spray my house. What a daunting task this is when you consider the amount of pest control companies there are in Sydney. They promise you this and they promise you that. They all claim they are the best and use the safest chemicals. If I didn't already have grey hair I think I would of after all the drama of contracting a pest control company for such a simple job. In the end I decided to go with a very old and established big company thinking they have being around for a while they must be good.
I made an appointment for 12 in the afternoon, the man never turned up till 2 o'clock. Not only that he walked over my white carpet leaving dirty oil marks from his dirty boots. I couldn't believe it. What made things worse he was finding it very hard to understand me. By this time I was very irate. I told the man to stop and ordered him outside and telephoned the manager of the pest control company. He was extremely rude and insisted that I pay the pest control man for the service even if I wanted to cancel. In the end after pressure from the manager and the intimidating pest control man I paid for the service without having one done.
I still had cockroaches and spiders running around the place so my daughter referred me to Micropest Pest Control. The man was on time and he actually wore plastic booties in my house. He spoke fluent English and was clean shaven, polite and well presented. Well what a big difference. I will definitely be recomending Micropest to all my friends.

Termite Control Sydney Testimonial of the Month
To Whom It May Concern.
We live in Casle Hill situated in the Hills district of Sydney which happens to be the suburb with the highest incidence of termites in Sydney and unfortunately we caught a bad dose of termites in our five bedroom brick veneer house. At the time of the discovery my husband and myself were on vacation over seas and my teenage sons foot went through the floor in his bedroom on the second floor. What a pain in the proverbial.
I naturally thought there can't be to much difference in quality between the termite control companies so we asked our teenage son to organise someone to carry out a termite inspection and termite control treatment. The gentleman from the pest control company came over found termites on all floors of the house and the roof. Significant damage found throughout the house. Lesson number one always get regular termite inspections at least once a year not every five years like us.
The termite control treatment recomended to us was a Sentricon baiting system valued at five thousand dollars and he said he would be three thousand dollars for cash and no paper work. Lesson number two and three and four, never do a termite control treatment without paperwork, always get another quote and never do a termite control treatment cheaper for cash.
The pest control man carried out the termite treatment over a period of four months coming backwards and forth several times. Finally he gave us the all clear and said they had all gone.
I decided not to waste anymore time on that particular company and contracted my neighbours pest control man for a termite inspection. Gerard from Micropest came around to the house with his thermal imaging and termi trac termite inspection equipment and found considerable termite activity throughout the house. He was positive it was the original nest and not a new one. And the worst part of this whole situation was he could eliminate my termite problem for two hundred and fifty dollars. He found a very obvious termite nest in the gum tree in the front garden. He drilled the tree and injected a termite liquid into the nest and inspected the tree and the house two weeks later and we found no termites anywhere.
I payed the original pest control company three thousand dollars to eliminate my termites and the man from Micropest charged me two hundred and fifty dollars and succeeded in the elimination. Gerard really is a god send and I confidently would recomend him for any pest control problem you may have, he is honest and very capable.
