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.
