What our clients say
Top Dog Pest Control wasn't the first place we called but Greg called us back straight away (we didn't even hear back from the other two places for a couple of days!). We were glad we got a callback so quickly as Greg was able to fit us in sooner than expected and we have now discovered that my parent's have a major bug infestation that if we left it for much longer could cause some serious damage...and money...to fix. Greg took the time to explain in layman's terms to my elderly parents what was required and what they can do to prevent this happening again. Good old fashioned genuinely friendly service like this is hard to come by these days so I wanted to say thanks! We also love his cute pups that came with him!
I found some new dimpling in my wall after some rain and it felt damp to touch. I wasn't sure if I had a problem or not but just in case I rang Top Dog for some advice. Greg said not to touch it in case I disturbed something which could make it worse. Greg came over in less than 24 hours and I'm so glad I rang! He found termites in several different walls throughout my house. He even showed me them through a thermal camera which was pretty impressive. Greg was professional and thorough. He explained everything while he was doing it, showed me how they were getting in and why they were attracted to those areas. Greg really gives you complete confidence in a scary situation without the fear of being ripped off! (And OMG Bailey and Bella the 2 'Top Dogs' are just gorgeous! 😍🐶)
Greg came and completed my pest inspection prior to buying my first home. The level of professionalism and advice was second to none. He thoroughly checked my house for all pests (especially termites) with infrared technology and other devises (which i have no idea about).
I received Greg's information from a good friend and gave him a go and he did not disappoint. I would recommend him to anyone needing Pest advice and will definitely be using him in do complete our routine checks.
Depending on the type of insects and the problems encountered, a pest control company will have a range of solutions. A termite inspections business will adapt a solution to fight against these pests while preserving the environment. Insects account for the largest share of animal biodiversity and account for more than two-thirds of all living organisms.
In the transmission of infectious diseases, insects most often play the role of a vector, transporting infectious agents, in or on their bodies, from one individual to another. Some are reservoirs, and these organisms ensure the survival of a pathogen over a long period of time. Diseases are most often transmitted during the bite of the insect, which regurgitates infective saliva, or by its droppings, which penetrate through a cutaneous excoriation due to a sting, or by simple carriage of the infectious agent.
The world of insects is wonderful and exciting, but when these little beasts invade the house or the garden they are veritable scourges that destroy everything. The insecticidal products to be used for pest control are different for each group of termites and should be handled with caution as they are sometimes harmful. There are many species of insects. Only your authorized termite treatment and control exterminator specialized in termite detection can identify the existing population and find an effective and adequate solution.
Insects are, in the vast majority of cases, useful for our ecosystem, but some insects are harmful. Insects are found in almost all climates and in continental, terrestrial and aquatic environments. Some are beneficial as predators, others are pollinators, producers of honey, silk or even as a source of food for other animal and human species. They have interactions with humans. They can be pests of crops. Some consume a large amount of our food and can be vectors of diseases.
The frequency of the insect vectors of diseases mentioned below are constantly evolving. Some have become rare because of the progress of hygiene and vaccinations (plague, yellow fever, typhus, etc.). Others are expanding in particular due to climatic changes and the resulting changes in vector ecology (dengue, Lyme disease, chikungunya, etc.). Others, after having virtually disappeared, emerge again (trypanosomiasis).
What to Do to Exterminate Insects?
Fumigation allows pest control services to release fine insecticide particles penetrating each crevice in the treated area where insects may attempt to find refuge. Fumigation is recognized by pest controllers Tweed Heads an effective and targeted means of control, in particular against insects, including beetles, weevils and moths. Fumigation is the process of a pest control business introducing a gas or substance that gives rise to a gas into the atmosphere of a more or less closed enclosure in order to destroy living organisms known as “harmful” organisms. The fumigation treatment of registered insecticide by termite treatment services Tweed Heads is used with a strict methodology.
The applicable methodology and mode of action for insecticide gel for cockroaches is that the insecticide gel will be placed on the preferred places of: electric appliances that generate heat, wet and dark areas, piping, ventilation, etc. After having consumed the gel, the excrements of the cockroach are thus infested. Cockroaches feed on the excreta (coprophagia) of individuals who have ingested the gel and thus recover the insecticide gel. Cockroaches will die quickly. The contaminated cockroach dies quickly and will be eaten by its congeners infecting the active substance The insecticide gel will then be eaten by cockroaches in search of food and then transmitted to the colonies by a cascade effect.
An anthill may contain a population of several thousand ants. Are they dangerous for man? Ants are tiny insects, but their numbers are considerable. They interfere with all corners of the house, in kitchen cupboards, in food and can cause diseases or skin infections.
Ants are not welcome in a home or garden. Carpenter ants, for example, do a lot of damage to wood, carpentry, soil and plants. But their lifestyle and their ability to adapt are sometimes incredible and you will not see the ants in the same way after reading this article. The world of ants is really fascinating. You will find below a list of extraordinary ant species that are frequently found in housing.
For example the panda-ant (Euspinolia militaris) is actually a wasp belonging to the family Mutillidae. She is a native of Chile and her nickname is “cow killer” because she bites the animals and her sting is extremely painful. There are ants in nature that deceive the world. We also find the Cyphonia clavata, a membracid whose particularity is to camouflage in a breathtaking way.
Ants-bulldogs of the genus Myrmecia are endowed with powerful mandibles that secrete venom, much more dangerous than the venom of a hornet. We already know that leaf-cutter ants grow mushrooms, but did you also know that leaf-cutter ants raised aphids? Like true farmers, they treat aphids like cows to recover the sweet honeydew and feed the larvae.
Needless to say, the presence of ants is dangerous and can lead to short circuits and breakdowns. Ants love electric cables, indeed they interfere in computers, cars, televisions, etc. NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) detected red ants (Nylanderia fulva) in its electronic installations and circuits in 2008. Ants die roasted in power grids, but they emit pheromones that attract other ants.
For example, scientists found an abandoned giant anthill, built by ants. A true city, the structure included roads, ventilation pits, garbage depots, nurseries, pantries, etc. To calculate the depth of the giant anthill, scientists had to pour 10 tons of concrete to fill the network of galleries that stretched over 44 square meters.
It is known that carnivorous plants and insects do not mix, because small animals are the favorite food of carnivorous plants. And yet some ants, such as Camponotus schmitzi ants, are responsible for defending these plants against predators. Camponotus schmitzi can live in the stem, flowers and even thorns of these plants and feed on their juices and sap.
The mode of action and application methodology for insecticide gel for ants is that the insecticide gel will be placed on the places where ants pass. The insecticide gel will then be transmitted to the other congeners by a regurgitated food exchange, allowing the ants to nourish the recipient individual, and also to exchange the insecticide molecule that will arrive by a cascade effect to the queen. The entire colony will thus be destroyed.
