If you’re like most people, the last thing you want to think about is pests. Unfortunately, if you live in Newcastle, chances are you’ve had to deal with your fair share of pests. From spiders and rats to cockroaches and ants, it seems like there’s no end to the nuisance these creatures can cause. And if you’re not careful, they can do more than just annoy you; they can damage your property and spread diseases. 

You probably don’t give much thought to pest control until you have a problem. Then, all of a sudden, it’s the only thing you can think about! Of course, once you start looking into pest control providers, you quickly realise there are tons of them to choose from. And, if you’re not careful, it’s very easy to make a decision you’ll later regret. By the time you’re finished reading this blog post, you’ll know exactly what to look for—and what to avoid—when choosing a pest control specialist. To help you make the best decision for your needs, we’ve put together a checklist of things to look for when choosing a pest control service. 

The Pest Control Checklist: How to Choose the Right Service for You 

When it comes to pest control, you have a lot of options. But with so many companies to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you?

  • A company that is fully insured – check 
  • A company that provides a free quote – check                                                      

What Services Do They Offer? 

The first thing you’ll want to find out is what services the pest control specialist offers. Do they specialise in a particular type of pest? Do they use chemicals or traps? What kind of warranty do they offer? Once you know what services they offer, you can start narrowing down your options.

How Much Experience Do They Have? 

Another important consideration is how much experience the pest control specialist has. You don’t want to entrust your home to someone who is just starting out in the business. Instead, look for someone who has been doing this for a while and has a solid track record of success.

So, if you’re looking for a company with a proven track record, Black Label is definitely worth considering.


What Do Others Have to Say About Them? 

Finally, be sure to read online reviews before making your final decision. This will give you an idea of what others have thought about the quality of service they’ve received from the company in question. If there are mostly positive reviews, that’s a good sign; however, if there are mostly negative reviews, it’s probably best to steer clear. Of course, even the best companies will have some negative reviews from time to time; just be sure that those reviews are in the minority.

Where will the rats die?

It is not possible to determine exactly where the rodents will die, but rodents that have been affected by baits, will start to get thirsty and generally, they will leave to go in search for a water source and then die somewhere outside.

Large rodents got to that size due to their ability to survive and are highly intelligent.

What does pest control do?

Pest control is designed to kill pests in your house, roof, around the outside of your house, and from your fence line back through your yard and outdoor space. Treatment of this type provides a protective  barrier preventing pests re-establishing themselves on the property for up to 12 months. 

What do the chemicals do?

The chemicals are designed to target pests such as cockroaches, spiders, crickets, silverfish, ants and various other pests around the family home. Yard areas also harbour unwanted pests that need treating to prevent insects entering the house.

How do the chemicals work?

Spraying surface areas that insects crawl on, or spraying spider webs leads to the insects picking up the chemical which seeps in to their body. This reacts with the enzymes in the stomach and results in the death of the targeted insect.

What are the chemicals used in pest control?

The main chemical, Bifenthrin, is 100% naturally derived from the chrysanthemum flower. There are other products available which are synthetic versions which kill the targeted pests in different ways, and are equally effective.

What areas should be sprayed?

Areas that are treated inside the house are along all flooring edges of each room, to ensure a complete protective barrier internally. Outside spraying should include under eaves, on all wall surfaces, window frames, fences and gardens to cover all areas and leaving nowhere for pests to hide.
