General Pest FAQ

General Pest FAQ:

If it rains on the day of treatment, will it wash all the insecticides away?

No. We make use of cutting-edge external control agents like “Biflex Ultra.” Because it is insoluble, this low-toxic but powerful pesticide won’t be washed away by rain or garden irrigation.

If it is going to rain following your treatment, will this lessen the residual effect in all treated areas?

No. Nearly 90% of homes that have been treated are not even exposed to rain. (within a house or building, kitchen cabinets, a roof void, a garage, the sub-floor space, outbuildings, sheds, beneath the eaves, etc.) Please refer to the preceding question’s response for information on exterior garden spaces.

What distinguishes the goods you use from those you can buy at the grocery store?

We don’t use low-quality, off-brand products in our customers’ houses. Our customers appreciate the fact that we take care in providing just the best. Our products withstand the environment better. We can make our items stronger. Not “just the ones you see,” but the root of the issue is what our products are made to address.

Are the chemicals you use safe?

They are all approved chemicals for usage by the general public and are all environmentally friendly. Today’s products are created synthetically from natural derivatives or natural sources.

Many of the products of the new generation target aspects of insect biology that mammals are either not vulnerable to or at least significantly more tolerant of than insects. So we can lessen the effects of our treatments on you, your family, and your pets by making careful choices.

I own pets. What should I do to safeguard them during the treatment?

Animals should be kept away from the building when treatment is being applied, and their food and water bowls should be removed during spraying.

Must I leave during treatment?

Depending on the pest that is being treated. Unless you are worried, you usually don’t even need to leave the area. The technician will let you know where and when you can enter because our procedures are highly localised.

You will have to leave the area for a short while during treatments that entail spraying pesticides into the air or in fine mists (such as flea treatments).

Where do you treat?

Depends mainly on the pest. Every one of our treatments is targeted at the locations where the specific pest may breed, hide, or consume. Most of the time, inside therapies are administered without coming into contact with you. 

If you have any questions, our OCG pest control specialist can review them before he begins work in your house. In most circumstances, if you have any significant concerns, treatments can be slightly modified.

Must I empty my cupboards?

Removing and covering unsealed food packets is all we ask. Our methods target specific locations and use unique covers. Discuss your situation with the courteous OCG personnel at booking or your OCG technician before treatment.

Do you work on weekends?

Yes, we can by appointment without a doubt. However, weekends are quite popular and quickly booked out.

After Treatment FAQ:

How soon can I go back inside?

Generally speaking, the area that has just been treated is okay to access once the liquid treatment has dried.

Pests are still around!

Over time, pests must be flushed out of wall voids, crevices, and cracks. Before becoming active, which usually takes 7–10 days, our goods are made to allow the bugs to thrive. They are making it possible for other members of the nest to share the product. In this manner, the disease is treated rather than the symptom.

How can I aid with pest management?

Keep it tidy! All bugs are searching for three things: warmth, shelter, and food. The first step in managing your pest problem is keeping your home clean inside and out.

How frequently should I get treatments?

Treatment is often only needed every 6 to 12 months. However, every situation is unique, and you might require additional treatments depending on the level of the infestation.

Timber Pest FAQ

Why is it so crucial to get annual Timber Pest Inspections?

A timber pest inspection is recommended by Australian Standards to be performed at least once every 12 months but more regularly in areas with higher risk.

The use of slab-on-ground construction, pine framing and trusses, and other building techniques during the past 20 years have given termites the “upper hand” in the fight against termite entry into buildings. Post-construction elements like landscaping often increase risk.

What isn’t clear today might be clear tonight or tomorrow. Termites forage “randomly and continually,” according to the usual textbook phrase.

Because of this, certified, professional, and experienced Timber Pest Inspectors will discover that a site might undergo significant alteration even after three months. In fact, due to some properties’ high mix of risk factors, we advise inspections every three months.

I discovered termites. What should I do?

1. Keep them undisturbed, and aim to repair the situation to what it was.

2. Remain calm; severe damage from termites won’t happen overnight.

3. Avoid using chemicals or a pressure pack to spray them. This will only have a minor impact and may scare them away temporarily, making it much harder for a professional to help you assess the situation.

4. Get in touch with us, and we’ll send a timber pest expert to visit you.

What could be causing the scratching noises in my roof?

The sounds you’re hearing are commonly attributed to rodents, especially during the colder months. Rodents seek refuge in warmer spaces like your attic when temperatures drop. Light scratching and scurrying noises usually indicate the presence of mice. If the noises sound louder, heavier, and more rapid, it’s quite likely you have a rat visitor.

What types of spiders are congregating along my Colorbond fenceline?

In most cases (about 90%), these spiders are black house spiders, which can also appear brown. They are most active during spring and summer, enjoying the warmth and shelter provided by the ridge caps of fences. If undisturbed, these spiders may eventually migrate to house eaves, windows, doors, cracks, and weep holes.

What kinds of cockroaches are inhabiting my kitchen?

The large, dark brown cockroaches you’re spotting could be Smoky Browns, Australian, American, or Oriental cockroaches. If you’re seeing smaller, light brown cockroaches mainly active at night and found within kitchen cupboards, hinges, and appliance bases, these are most likely German cockroaches. These pests are not native and do not originate from gardens or roofs. Instead, they often hitch a ride from fruit shops, second-hand white goods, or grocery stores. Once they find their way into a dwelling, they seek warmth and begin to colonize, typically under appliances like fridges, dishwashers, kettles, ovens, or microwaves.

What is an ‘End of Lease’ treatment, and why is it necessary?

An ‘End of Lease’ treatment is a preventive measure to eliminate or halt the spread of fleas before a new tenant moves into a property. If the previous occupant had pets, it’s only fair to ensure the incoming tenant does not encounter a flea-infested environment, even if the pets were treated with flea tablets. This treatment serves as an essential step in maintaining a clean, pest-free living space.
