Fleas and ticks can get out of control very quickly and generally it's not your fault. It's simply the humid climate we live with in Cairns and in a lot of cases a misunderstanding of the breeding nature of these pests. Fleas and ticks rapidly reproduce and they can only be effectively dealt with by professionals that understands the biology of these pests.
Rental Vacate Treatments
We now experience more tenants being require to treat for fleas and ticks at the end of their lease. If a rental vacate treatment is require, SR Pest Control can help you get back your bond. It is best to schedule your end of lease pest control after all cleaning is completed, as mopping of floors or steam cleaning of carpets will strip our treatment away.
