Pests no match for the Pest­man


FOR STEPHEN Ge­orge, he loves Childers and for that rea­son he is ded­i­cated to erad­i­cat­ing pests from the re­gion one day at a time.

Al­though he be­gan his busi­ness Childers Pest­man only 12 months ago, as owner and pest tech­ni­cian, Steve brings an amaz­ing 21 years in the in­dus­try to his role.

Steve and his fam­ily orig­i­nally moved to Childers in search of a warmer cli­mate and were im­me­di­ately taken with the area.

See­ing a need for a lo­cal pest man, Steve be­gan his busi­ness and hasn’t looked back since with cus­tomers re­spond­ing to his com­plete en­thu­si­asm and com­mit­ment to his work.

Steve said that his cus­tomers can al­ways be as­sured of a qual­ity job as he not only owns but runs his own busi­ness, there­fore do­ing all the work him­self.

“I have had such a wealth of di­rect in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence, have com­mit­ted to live and work in Childers, there­fore en­sur­ing hon­esty, in­tegrity, and ser­vice to the com­mu­nity of Childers and the lo­cal area,” he said.

“I am re­ally en­joy­ing the di­ver­sity of farm­ing, the his­tory and her­itage of Childers and the Wide Bay area, es­pe­cially be­cause it is an area where the peo­ple and the life­style are unique and it never hurts that I can of­ten make it home for lunch.”

Steve cov­ers a wide range of gen­eral pests in­clud­ing cock­roaches, ants, sil­ver­fish, spi­ders, fleas, ro­dents and even bed bugs and wee­vils.

He also car­ries out pre-pur­chase tim­ber pest in­spec­tions, an­nual ter­mite in­spec­tions and treat­ments while al­ways re­main­ing up to date with the lat­est prod­ucts on the mar­ket.

“The lat­est prod­ucts I am ex­cited about are the ‘al­ways ac­tive’ ter­mite baits be­cause we are al­ways look­ing to use the best qual­ity prod­ucts on the mar­ket.

“We also in­stall ter­mite bar­ri­ers when re­quired.

“This re­search also ex­tends to en­sur­ing we are up to date with the safest prod­ucts avail­able to us be­cause wher­ever pos­si­ble we use en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly prod­ucts to keep our clients’ chil­dren, fam­ily and pets safe.”

Steve rec­om­mends that a gen­eral pest con­trol and ter­mite in­spec­tion of your home, should be car­ried out at least once a year, to en­sure a pest free, safe en­vi­ron­ment for your fam­ily.

Busi­nesses, es­pe­cially ones serv­ing food, should also be treated ev­ery three to six months, depend­ing on the vol­ume of cus­tomers, as per the Queens­land Health stan­dard.

He is happy to ser­vice as far afield as is re­quired by his cus­tomers be­cause as he jokes that he doesn’t mind pack­ing his lunch, es­pe­cially if the cus­tomer gives him a cof­fee.

“I am from an ex­ten­sive farm­ing back­ground, and I re­ally en­joy get­ting out onto prop­er­ties, see­ing a di­verse range of crops, an­i­mals and farm­ing meth­ods.

“I am fully li­cenced and in­sured for cus­tomers’ peace of mind, and pro­tec­tion.

“I would def­i­nitely like to see more of the lo­cal busi­nesses us­ing Childers’ own pest man, with our com­pet­i­tive pric­ing, in­stead of sourc­ing it out of the area, ‘use lo­cal busi­nesses, so in turn we can use you’.

“If your real es­tate is not rec­om­mend­ing the Childers Pest­man, ask them why not? Af­ter all, we do it all, from pre-pur­chase pest and build­ing in­spec­tions, or pre-sale in­spec­tion of your in­vest­ment prop­erty or your own home to or­gan­is­ing car­pet and bond clean­ing.

“If you’re not us­ing the Childers Pest­man, you’re not us­ing the best man.”

Feel free to call Steve for a quote or ad­vice as he will al­ways re­turn your call.
