Working directly with builders, architects and designers for over 50 years, Rentokil has decades of experience and expertise in delivering pest prevention services to the construction sector. Our accumulated global experience and knowledge of legislation in the construction industry, sector-specific needs and pest control innovation makes Rentokil unmatched across Australia and the world.
At Rentokil, we have an expert team of specialist technicians and technical managers highly specialised in pest control in the construction industry as well as teams dedicated to termite management and specialist bird control.
Backed by some of Australia’s biggest construction and design companies, we offer builders:
During construction, pest harbourages are disturbed, posing health and safety issues. Rentokil offers integrated pest management (IPM) programs to meet specific site needs, mitigate potential pest infestations and protect site workers and the community.
Strategic pest control advice to support the construction project goals. Project assistance through trend-reporting, customised recommended actions and access to service treatment history and supporting documentation.
Seamless management of multi-site customers with a single point of contact, consolidated reporting, tailored programs and combined invoicing.
Deterring pests from a new building before they make home in the establishment is easier than addressing a pest infestation in an existing structure. A simple modification to design, or installing preventative maintenance products during the construction phase can make a substantial difference post construction. Pre-emptive measures taken may also prove to be cost effective, as the building is not in use and there may already be scaffolding and access equipment available onsite.
Every building is different, and every project requires a custom approach. This includes reducing the attractiveness of the building and any conducive conditions for pests. Some pest problems experienced during construction include:
Rentokil can help with pest management strategies and avoid costly implications in complaints, maintenance and liability.
Termite management systems can be installed at the earliest opportunity in both commercial and residential sites, before the main construction stages begin. Consult with your local Rentokil team on which termite management system is best suited to the site. Be it a physical termite barrier or a termite reticulation system, Rentokil are your pre-construction termite experts.
Engaging with bird control specialists at the concept and design stage of the construction process will ensure there is scope and provision for pest bird management and prevention. Bird control measures may include consideration of ledges, flush entrances, roof heights and windows for assurance against future risk of bird pests.
Rodent control on construction sites requires flexibility and continual adjustment with any changes throughout the building process. Rentokil understands that the presence of rats and mice can have a severe impact on the building project and can support builders to protect stock, site sheds, construction material from rodent damage and ensure site sanitation practices are in place.
Rentokil employs a five-stage approach to pest control, focusing on strategic preventative measures rather than a tactical reactive program.
Pest control starts with the design and construction of the building; the internal and external layout as well as construction materials. The design and construction in itself should prevent harbourage of pests - deny access through doors, windows, vents, pipe work, drains etc. and minimise risk of access during business operations.
Rentokil plans the actions needed to prevent a pest infestation, including physical, cultural and chemical methods and will provide recommendations to specify:
Implement the control measures that provide the most effective results and ensure safety:
In the event of a pest outbreak, clear identification of the pest is essential to determine the most appropriate control methods and preventive actions needed to avoid re-infestation.
Evaluate the effectiveness of the pest control program, this can include:
A range of IoT enabled pest management solutions providing commercial customers unrivalled pest data, insights and reporting to proactively prevent and manage pests.
Our mission is Protecting people, enhancing lives. We do that by creating groundbreaking pest control innovations, by making our service solutions more sustainable and by making a positive impact in communities where we live and work.
