Why we're clever
Being clever is a survival technique for pests. By being clever, they manage to evade natural predators, and resist most of the day-to-day products people use to trap or eradicate them.
Often, it's like playing a game of hide and seek, that’s why we need to be clever to outwit them. Take termites for example, back before regulation, exterminators were able to use a range of termite treatment products based on organochlorines. These were lethal – and you really didn’t have to be specific with how they were applied.
Nowadays, products are less toxic – which is great for the health of you, your family and the environment – not to mention our clever technicians! However, to be effective, these products demand that the user have a higher degree of skill and knowledge. They need to be applied cleverly.
Since 1988, the pest management industry in Australia have been governed by the Australian Environmental Pest Managers Association (AEPMA). Membership of this industry association binds pest control professionals to a Code of Ethics. This has raised professional standards in the industry, and reduced unethical activity such as the misuse of chemicals, blanket pest eradication procedures, and harming of native animals. Members are also obliged to carry professional indemnity and public liability insurances.
