Our
Service Offerings

Our core services for our commercial clients are as follows

Pest
Management

The design, implementation and maintenance of pest prevention / elimination programmes for cockroaches, rats, mice, flies, bedbugs, fleas, stored product insects and occasional invaders.

Eco Pest provides a fully guaranteed service and call backs in between basic service intervals are not charged for. Emergencies, ie: cockroach, rat, fly etc activity are reacted to immediately and in this respect, we commit ourselves to service our existing clients 7 days a week if and when necessary.

Due to the varied nature of our clients’ businesses, we will accommodate services that are required to be conducted after hours.

Food Safety
Auditing

Food safety audits are provided to reinforce food safety programmes and to prepare such facilities for pending regulatory audits.

This quarterly internal audit will consist of a site-walkthrough with the Client, paying specific attention to identified possible pest problem areas. A review of the Food Safety file will also be undertaken.

All findings and relevant corrective actions will be discussed with the Client and a copy of the audit report will be placed in the Food Safety file. Internal audits will be conducted by a senior management member from Eco Pest together with the identified client representative.

Eco Pest will make themselves available during regulatory audit execution, where necessary.

Hygiene and Sanitation inspections
and programme development

Very often an organization’s pest problems are largely due to hygiene and sanitation issues. For this reason included in our overall pest management programme, is a Sanitation and Hygiene Programme that will address any identified inadequacies and subsequently assist in the reduction of pest problems.

Profume
Fumigation

Profume is the new standard of efficient, professional, and flexible fumigation. Tested and approved in both ISPM 15 and a wide range of commodity fumigation by the world health organization as an environmentally friendly product and the number one alternative to Methyl Bromide, classified as an ozone-depleting gas hence the reason for its progressive phase-out by the Montreal protocol.

This is Eco Pests’ contribution to protecting the environment as an eco-friendly-based company.

Soil Poisoning &
Termite Treatment

Termites

Control

Subterranean termites are controlled in the following ways:

  • Pre-construction: The foundation trenches, v-channels and under solid floor areas must be treated with a termiticide drenching the entire area according to label directions normally at 5 litres per square meter.
  • Post –construction: The entire structure must be drilled through the outside perimeter wall to reach below the floor slab and a solution of termiticide is then injected according to label directions.
  • Nests: Holes must be drilled into the nest and the nest must be flooded with a solution of termiticide according to label directions. Normally a minimum of 75 litres of solution is required depending on the size of the nest.

Control of harvester termites is normally accomplished by establishing where their shallow nests are and a solution of termiticide is then injected into the numerous nests.

The surface area around the nests must also be treated with a solution of termiticide as the harvester termites will strip the surrounding vegetation, taking these clippings down into the nests.

Control of dry-wood termites is accomplished by encasing the entire structure in gas proof plastic sheeting and then introducing a toxic gas for twenty four hours.

If this is not possible then the infested timber must be replaced with new pre-treated timber and the rest of the structural timber must be drilled at 300mm intervals and be pressure injected with a registered wood preservative

Pre-Construction Termites

  •  Ecopest Warrantied Pre-Construction Treatments, often referred to as a Pre-treat, are available for new construction homes, additions, garages, offices, and other Industrial and commercial buildings and are designed to keep termites from infesting your new home or business in the future. The pre-construction termite treatment is often the first step in protecting your home against termite infestations. The pre-construction termite treatment is performed once the foundation, blocks, and backfill have been completed.  The same termite treatment methods are utilized for our pre-treat service as are used in standard termite treatments, including trenching. Our comprehensive Pre-Construction Termite service provides treatment to the surrounding soil of a construction area, as well as treatment to the foundation, slab or basement areas, to create a preventative and protective barrier against possible future termite infestations. This protective barrier is designed to prevent termites from crossing through or under (subterranean termites live under the ground) and will include the entire interior and exterior perimeters of the building foundation of the new construction areas. Pre-construction Termite Treatments may be especially crucial and beneficial to new commercial buildings, to prevent a future termite infestation that could disrupt general business operations when treatment would need to be done later.

Post_Construction Termites

  • Post Construction or preventative termite treatments are available as an option to homeowners and business owners after your home has been built.  The same treatment process is followed for post construction and preventative termite treatments and the soil surrounding your home or business is treated as a protective soil barrier against termites that may pass through or under the treated soil areas.

 

  • Pre-construction and Post Construction Termite Treatments include a one-year GUARANTEE warranty from the date of treatment service, which is the same as all our termite treatments. If the termites are found within the one-year guarantee period, a return visit for additional treatments to the affected area will be made at no additional charge for the guaranteed warranty year

Live
Relocation

Eco Pest as an environmentally friendly company has recently introduced a live relocation initiative with our goal to protect the environment and certain species of animals, from insects to reptiles that happen to find themselves in the wrong place.

Our qualified team is trained in the live removal and relocation of many species (bees, snakes, spiders, mammals as well as exotic birds).
