A qualified pest controller is educated in much more than just chemical application. They must pass a TAFE level course that includes thorough modules on pest identification, breeding patterns, and biology in order to be licenced. Their qualifications give them the knowledge and skills to control pest activity and prevent new infestations using a variety of established ways.
They begin by inspecting your home for any environmental variables that may have triggered the infestation. They know how to look for breeding grounds and access points and where to look. They will assist you in selecting the most appropriate treatment once they have determined the extent of the problem.
Many of the pest control treatments used in homes are also employed in hospitals, restaurants, cafes, and food processing companies.
If a chemical treatment is required, a pest controller will only use the smallest amount necessary to complete the task in the locations where it is needed.
