An efficient and lasting solution
Free from harmful chemicals
What Is It?
Our expert pest controllers use a highly effective natural and organic pest deterrent known as Pyrethrum. It is commonly used in the agricultural industry and exported around the world. It is used for pest control treatments in areas that need to be free from harmful chemicals or areas with children or pets. Examples of these areas are the backyard. Children play areas and organic vegetable gardens. It is considered a very safe pest control solution.
Pyrethrum is found naturally in the plant pyrethrum daisy (Tanacetum cinerariifolium), a part of the Asteraceae family. Found in the flower head, the substance can kill insects. Being organic, it breaks down rapidly, especially in sunlight, making it non-harmful to the environment.
How Does It Work?
The pyrethrum disrupts the normal function of cockroaches, spiders, flies, and similar crawling insects by affecting the central nervous system. An insect loses its normal ability to send messages to muscles to move. In low concentrations, pyrethrum creates a behavioural reaction known as avoidance reaction, which results in the insects fleeing from the area. When used in the backyard, the Pyrethrum causes female mosquitoes to lose focus and the ability to bite and extract blood from humans. Increasing the concentration results in the insects losing the normal behavioural patterns altogether. Download our Natural Pest Control Data Sheet
Why Hire Expert Pest Controllers To Apply Pyrethrum?
Even though pyrethrum is a natural substance, applying pyrethrum still needs to be done by trained experts. If misapplied, it might not be effective in getting rid of pests on your property. It is still best to let experienced pest control experts inspect your property and determine the areas where you need to apply large concentrations of this substance.

Simple Home Remedies to Prevent Pests
Step 1: Remove Any Water Source For Pests.
Your first step is to investigate your home to find where bugs may be entering and hiding. You should also check for possible food and water sources. You’ll want to be sure to check two areas under your kitchen sink and behind your refrigerator. If water is collecting in these areas, it will provide a drinking ground for rats and cockroaches. Every living rodent or spider needs water. That is why you need to remove any of their water sources, such as a leaking pipe or broken home appliance.
Step 2: Declutter Your Property.
If you have piles of unnecessary items lying around your house, it’s time to get rid of them. This may include stacks of old magazines and newspapers, old shoes in the closet, and any other clutter that you don’t need. These things give bugs a place to hide, not to mention material for building nests. It is also harder to clean around areas of clutter, resulting in an increased food supply for many types of insects. Cardboard is lovely to bugs, so get rid of any empty boxes you may have around the home.
Go through your house and gather items that you are no longer using. Either sell or donate these things and then organise the belongings you have left. All storage should be at least an inch off the floor and away from the walls. Keep food in tightly sealed plastic containers, especially pet food.
Step 3: Maintain a clean environment.
In this step, you remove any markings and droppings left by insects and get rid of their food sources. Vacuum, mop, and thoroughly clean your cabinets, countertops, and other surfaces in your home, especially under the refrigerator, oven, and kitchen sink. Use vacuum attachments to make the job of reaching into those corners and crevices easier.
Once your initial cleaning is done, continue to clean regularly to keep your house free of food and water sources. Wipe up crumbs and spills immediately, wash your dirty dishes right away, and empty your garbage before you go to bed. Leave pet bowls empty overnight and refill them in the morning. Keep your drains covered when they’re not being used as well.
If you’re suffering from a cockroach infestation, be sure to sweep or vacuum under your furniture to remove any dead cockroaches. These can decay into roach dust, which may trigger allergies and asthma attacks in some people.
Step 4: Seal Cracks And Gaps.
Next, you will need to seal the entrances pests use to get into your house. These are commonly located in kitchens and bathrooms where pipes enter your house. Concentrate your efforts in the kitchen and bathroom, and work your way outward from there. Use cement, plaster, or caulk to seal the cracks and gaps where pests enter. You may also apply weather stripping around your windows and doors.
Step 5: Use Pest Baits.
If you’ve done all of the above steps and your pest problem has not been resolved, it may be time to use some pest baits. These kill pests by poisoning them and therefore should be used with caution. Only resort to this method once all of the above steps have been done. Make sure to keep the baits out of reach of your pets and children. Reminder: It is best to let expert pest controllers handle termite baits or rat baits to ensure the safety of your loved ones. (Related: How to apply electronic pest control)

Trusted pest control company
When you are considering hiring a pest control expert, the first thing that you should do is talk to some of the people you know and see if they can recommend you one. Ask your friends, colleagues, and your family if they have previously used such services and if they can recommend you a pest control expert. You mustn't make deals with the first company you see, but rather first find people who have used it and ask them what they think.
If you do not have anyone to ask, or you are afraid of talking to people about your little misfortune (which is a lot more common than you might think), then you should look around forums and other places where you can find feedback from any previous customers of the company.
