Geelong pest control FAQs
What are “bed bugs”?
Bed bugs are small crawling insects with a flat oval shape and about the size of an apple pip. Their flattened body allows them to squeeze into small cracks and crevices and as a result they are hard to detect and get rid of. They are blood-sucking insects that require blood for nutrition and growth and often live in the mattresses, hence their name. Bed bugs come out at night to feed, and inflict itchy and sore bites on those sleeping.
Geelong, Bellarine and Surfcoast Pest Control are your local and professional experts to rid you of bed bugs in your home or business.
Are the chemicals used safe for pets and humans?
The treatment and chemicals we use depend on the pest we are trying to deal with. In the case of fumigation, we advise that all humans and pets leave the home or premises during the treatment for a minimum of two hours. In the case of baits, we ensure baits are sealed and unable to be opened except by a professional. Please be assured that Geelong, Bellarine and Surfcoast Pest Control uses only the most environmentally-friendly pest control products available on the market today from leading manufacturers such as Bayer, FMC and Exterra.

Are scorpions dangerous?
Scorpions are common arachnids found in gardens and bushland throughout Australia. Of the 1000-plus known species of scorpion, only 25 have venom that is deadly to humans, and none live in Australia. They can still be a pest as they can deliver a nasty sting which is best treated with ice an analgesic.
