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!!

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

I have been using for a few years an old bloke by the name of Bernie, his number is 0412562054. he owns the business so he does the job right. The name of his company is Top kill of Canberra.
