A1 Pest Control Canberra is my bet as they are a Canberra company that has grown to win one of the 3 best pest companies in Canberra. Been with them for years and not changing anytime soon!

Adams Pest Management 0499235340, turned up when he said he would, was friendly, professional did a thorough job and charged us half the price we were quoted by one of the other pest companies for our termite barrier. Would most definitely recommend him

Armageddon is the way to go. Prompt, reliable, reasonable price and thorough.

CD CD 2:51 pm 21 Sep 17

I would recommend John at Bugalugs Pest Control – 0427 400 147. Small family business and very focussed on customers

Just used Armageddon Pest Control–very happy with their service and their prices were quite reasonable compared to Canberra Pest Control.

Another recommendation for Canberra Pest Control here. Been using them for years. Always on time, courteous and efficient. They send reminders too when the next treatment is due which is great for me because I’m hopelessly disorganised 🙂

Flick were bought out by a larger national company a while back I think. I go with Canberra Pest Control. They are good value.

HAHAHAHAHA I love it, they would make a little click as he walks.

What a choice name ‘Armageddon Pest control’. I’d use them just because of the name. I have the imagery in my head of a giant astroid smashing down on a cockroach civilisation and a religious, crazy, hobo cockroach with a sign over his body warning about the end of the word, and screaming out I told you so!! (The little sign is made out of the top of a milk carton and he is wearing peanut shells for shoes.)

I’ll second Canberra Pest Control – used them before and will get them back out in the near future.

Cameron Cameron 1:47 pm 04 Sep 09

Armaggedon Pest control; Phone 02 6231 2677. Not only do they have a very cool name, they got rid of our termites and are really nice and reliable. Husband and wife team, local = good!

I have used Canberra Pest Control before and they were great. Turned up when they were supposed to, were local, affordable – and best of all, my wife was happy.

Here are their details:

Canberra Pest Control

1/189 Flemington Rd
Mitchell ACT 2911
(02) 6242 7779

Amalgamated Pest Control offer a 12 month warranty on their services. Not sure about prices, it’d be worth giving them a ring.
