People working in state and local government have their work cut out for them staying on top of maintaining publicly owned spaces. If you are one of these people, the last thing you need is a pest infestation that you have to deploy extra resources for.

You can trust Statewide Pest Control to manage pests across your public spaces, lowering the chance of infestation (and reputation loss), instead allowing you to focus your efforts elsewhere.

Dedicated pest management solutions

Statewide Pest Control technicians are highly knowledgeable about managing pests in local government-run areas. As a subsidiary of Orkin Australia, we are part of one of Australia’s biggest pest management businesses, which gives us the capability to quickly deploy resources across Victoria or the rest of the country.

We are 100% committed to each of our clients – we provide you with a dedicated account manager and pest technician team who will look after all your pest management strategy, monitoring and service.

Experienced providing pest management to many different types of public facilities, we design a pest management strategy specific to your requirements. We also meet the requirements of any necessary compliance standard, including HACCP and ISO, and all our pesticides are licensed by APVMA.

Comprehensive pest management process

We have a tried and tested process for successfully managing pests in many types of local government-owned spaces.

Step 1. We conduct a thorough audit of the location

It’s important we understand the details of every facility we work with, so we can assess the risk of harbouring pests. We:

  • Inspect the premises and storage areas (if applicable) to find pest entry points and hiding areas
  • Inspect anything involved in the supply chain
  • Assess your existing pest reports
  • Inspect the surrounding environment

Step 2. We assign you your own pest control team

Local governments form part of the backbone of the community, and we are committed to keeping public spaces and facilities safe, comfortable and pest free for all. To succeed in this, we give you a personal account manager and team of pest control technicians, who develop a thorough understanding of your business and keep a close eye on it through our PesTrak monitoring system.

Step 3. We plan out your customised pest management program

Once we thoroughly understand your premises, operations and associated risks, we design an integrated pest management program specific to your business. It is always based around three main focus areas: inspect, identify and treat.

This can include:

  • Any relevant building and maintenance and exclusion practices
  • Advice on good housekeeping and hygiene for staff
  • Pest management inspections and monitoring
  • Physical control methods
  • Chemical control methods
  • Managing the surrounding environment

Step 4. We use PesTrak to keep you up to date on your progress

Our proprietary PesTrak system is a bait station monitoring tool that shows you all your baiting activities in real-time and allows us to keep a close eye on your facilities. If you call us or we get an automatic alert about activity in a baiting station, we can remotely check your facility and take action if required.

If you are ever audited for your pest control, all your compliance-related documents are kept together on the PesTrak platform where you can access them anytime 24/7, 365 days a year.

Legislation, compliance and standards

We are across all required safety standards related to commercial pest control. We use the PesTrak system to allow you to keep your records of all pesticide applications (as required by law), and all of our pesticides are registered with APVMA.

We are also compliant with the following standards:

ISO compliant

If you need ISO compliance, we can adopt ISO standard pest management services within your premises to meet both internal and external requests. Our pest control strategies are compliant with your ISO accreditation.

HACCP certified

For any government-owned areas that sell food, we are certified to apply pest management that meets HACCP standards.

Other certified standards

For any other standards you need, we can roll out a pest management solution that meets both your internal and external pest management requirements.

Pests commonly found in local government-owned areas

Termites

Termites feed on wooden structures and are responsible for millions of dollars worth of damage every year. Once they infest a building, they compromise its stability and safety. They can also infest outside structures such as fences, park benches and trees.

Termites can go unnoticed for a long time, and by the time you do notice changes, it can be too late. We recommend getting a regular termite inspection and can provide necessary prevention and treatment systems.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are attracted to any areas with food, such as commercial kitchens. They spread diseases and can contaminate any stored food.

They are also very fast breeders. The common rule is that for every cockroach you see, there are ten more hidden out of sight, so it’s essential you get professional pest control in as soon as you spot one.

Spiders

While most spiders aren’t particularly venomous, they can be unsightly and create messy webs, which can be off-putting for people using public spaces such as libraries.
