Important Facts About A Current Pest Control License
Gerard Dallow, the head technician for Micropest Pest Control Sydney, has over thirty-five years of experience providing pest solutions. He has tackled numerous pest infestations, spending ten years in South Australia and twenty-five in various districts of Sydney, including the North Shore, CBD, Inner West, Eastern Suburbs, Northern Beaches, and Hills.
One notable difference in licensing today compared to thirty-five years ago is the process of obtaining a full pest license. Previously, it took three years to complete. However, nowadays, one can acquire a license within seven days by purchasing a franchise and undergoing training.
When I first entered the pest industry, I studied at TAFE and underwent a three-year apprenticeship under a seasoned professional with over forty years of experience. He was an invaluable mentor, having been the top troubleshooter for Flick Adelaide for a decade. I received comprehensive training beyond the standard curriculum, albeit in the role of an apprentice and general dogs body.
At the initial stages of one's pest control career, actions are performed without much thought. However, after approximately five years, a skilled pest controller begins to consider the why and where of each spray application. By ten years of experience, one becomes an expert capable of performing tasks almost instinctively. After thirty-five years, it's safe to say you've reached the pinnacle of the industry.
Encountering a pest technician with over thirty-five years of experience is a rarity. So when you contact Micropest Pest Control Sydney, rest assured that your pest service will be carried out by an operator with extensive knowledge gained from more than three and a half decades in the industry.
Differentiation Between Past and Current Pest Management Treatments.
The fundamental difference between past and current methods of pest management lies in the use of repellent and non-repellent chemicals. In the past, pest treatments were cheap, toxic, environmentally unfriendly, smelly, messy, repellent, and hazardous. Some were even believed to be carcinogenic. The prevailing attitude favored potent and pungent chemicals, often applied in excessive amounts. Customers would complain if there wasn't a strong toxic smell or pools of chemicals left behind, adhering to old-school practices.
Today, modern pest control treatments prioritize quality and adhere to different standards. They are characterized by low or no odor, non-repellency, low toxicity, higher cost, cleanliness, and crucially, environmentally friendly attributes. These treatments are designed not to persist in the environment for extended periods. However, it's important to acknowledge that most effective pest treatments contain some level of toxicity, tailored to the target pest rather than causing harm to infants and pets. Applying treatments more strategically allows for reduced volume. Nowadays, customers complain if the applied pest treatment emits any smell. Nonetheless, it's worth noting that some unscrupulous operators may still opt for highly toxic cheap chemicals in order to save a few dollars.
What is going on recently In Artarmon?
Our Sydney spring is just starting and there has being a rapid influx of cockroaches, rats, brush turkeys and termites in the Lower North Shore of Sydney.
1) If you hear noises in the roof, do not delay investigating. Rats do like to gnaw on electrical wires and have been known to cause fires. After the rats have been controlled, if you wash your house with a diluted solution of Chlorine, it will remove the pheromone tracks from the rats making it less likely for a rat re-infestation.
2) Cut trees away from the roof of your house, making it more difficult for possums and rats to gain entry to your roof cavity. Also, install downpipe filters to stop rats from climbing up the downpipes to access the roof.
3) Any signs of German cockroaches in your house or apartment, please do not spray them as you will spread them throughout your abode. Instead, ring a professional, and they will bait them with a cockroach bait called Maxforce Gold.
4) If you go on holiday, please check your hotel room for bed bugs before staying in the room. If found, ask to move to another room if not change hotels. Unpack your luggage outside when you arrive home and never store your luggage in the bedroom.
5) If you haven't had a termite inspection for a while, it is strongly recommended to get one at least once a year. Not only is it necessary, but it will give you peace of mind.
6) As soon as you see a male Brush Turkey in your yard, Rabbits or Bandicoots. Run down to Bunnings and pick up a couple of bags of the smelliest dynamic lifter you can find and spread it evenly over your lawn and gardens, and sometimes if you are lucky, the smell sends them next door. They all have very sensitive noses. Rake up all the leaves starting July to November, so the male bush turkey has nothing to make the nest.
7) If you find termites in the garden or house, ring a termite control expert promptly. Termites cause considerable damage. Do not spray termites. Leave them alone until a professional can evaluate them; otherwise, it might take a lot longer to exterminate them and cost you considerably more.
8) If you find wasps in the garden or house, don't delay ring us promptly. Bees and wasps are dangerous and should be treated by trained professionals.
