Local Pest Inspection Companies are Struggling to Keep up With Demand
Gold Coast: In the recent months, Gold Coast inspection and control businesses have seen a major market boom with demand reaching a record high. Local businesses have claimed that the phones have been ringing off the hook. Their clients are calling constantly to request appointments all over the area for a number of services.
“We have never seen anything like this,” said Scott Dixon owner of local pest control business, Pro Pest Control Gold Coast. “It seems that everyday we are making at least a half-a-dozen new appointments.”
As the coronavirus pandemic rages on and affects economies all over the world, some industries have been suffering more than others. The pest control and inspection industry has actually benefited from the COVID-19 crisis for a number of reasons, including:
- As more people stay home more often, they are witnessing the appearance of more pests.
- Being at home more often allows residents to better keep track of the state of their property.
- Local real estate markets have seen an uptick in business since the pandemic began, with many people finally deciding to purchase a home after years of putting it off. This has led to more inspections for pests as new homes are being filled with families.
The Gold Coast is home to many annoying pests that could invade your home, from bed bugs and lice to silverfish, spiders, bees, wasps, fleas and ticks and more. Each of these bugs and pests come with their own specific nuisances that need to quickly be addressed. Simply living with these nagging houseguests just won’t do.
Pest control companies can quickly eliminate any number of pests quickly and efficiently. The success rate of most pest companies is high, with repeated visits to a home rarely ever needed. As winter arrives and more families spend their days indoors. This means more pests will infest homes looking for food and shelter. So Gold Coast exterminators are about to see an even larger boom in popularity and demand.
Local businesses will continue to reopen as the coronavirus pandemic winds down. As they do, there will be an even stronger need for pest control companies in the Gold Coast region. Businesses that have been shuttered for months if not an entire year will need assistance to make sure every location is as clean as can be. In the last few months, termite, rats, spiders, and other pests have made their home all over the Gold Coast area. Business owners are returning to locations that have new, unwelcome guests that need to be done away with in record time or else it will affect business.
Termites on the Rise
Termites are of serious concern, especially to residents and business owners on the Gold Coast. They can create serious property damage in very little time. Scheduling regular termite inspections is one of the smartest things a business or home owner can do. Without regular inspection, a problem could arise in no time at all and a solution may be out of reach.
Cockroaches, rates, wasps, snakes, and bed bugs are some of the other larger areas of concern for the Gold Coast. Those creatures are known to populate and reproduce quickly and can almost immediately be a serious problem. During the pandemic, all of these pests have seen their population increase greatly. Moreover the demand to get rid of them has led to a pest control market boom in recent times. It is a surge in popularity that is sure to only grow in the weeks and months ahead.
With plenty of experience leading up to this increase in demand, pest inspection businesses are meeting the moment head on and are taking calls for as many appointments as they can make. They remain reliable, punctual, and affordable and have been offering quote after quote as the calls continue to pour in. From apartment complexes to businesses to homes, the Gold Coast has been keeping the pest control industry busy. The future months for these companies promise to be even more fruitful and exciting.
