In an Australian first, Adelaide firm innovative Pest Consultants (IPC) has launched 'Pest Help', a new iPhone app that lets you take a picture of the offending bug or rodent and send it for analysis by experts and a quotation on removal or extermination.
Available now for download from iTunes, the app means you no longer have to wait for a consultant to come to your home for the quoting process.
"It's all taken care of through the Pest ID function on the app," says Innovative Pest Consultants Managing Director Neil Raw.
With scary statistics like 3 out of 5 South Australian houses experiencing a termite infestation and the State seeing an increase of rat and mice infestations due to the cold weather -- encouraging them to move inside your home, Mr Raw wanted to help consumers save time and money with pest identification and removal.
"Everyone's busy these days so the last thing we all need is to be sitting around waiting for someone to quote for a job," Mr Raw says. “We are the only pest control company in Australia that has this kind of app, which lets you take a picture of the offending pest and send it directly to us. We then identify it and send you information about that pest along with a quote from our team to help with removal.”
If your problem is termites, a technician must see the damage and the surrounding material to be able to quote accurately, but Mr Raw's team will take the guesswork out of the process with an initial diagnosis to be sure your problem is indeed caused by termites and not wood rot.
Pest Help also provides important information on common pests that are found in South Australia along with suggestions to aid in removal. Innovative Pest Consultants specialises in using the most efficient and effective tools for the job, and stand by their work.
The Pest Help App is available now from iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/pest-help/id540913509?mt=8
Innovative Pest Consultants
Innovative Pest Consultants was founded by Neil Raw in September 2003.
Neil has worked in Pest Control in both South Australia and New South Wales for over 30 years . During this time he had felt that the industry at times lacked a degree of professionalism and customer care.
When he founded Innovative Pest Consultants, Neil set out to provide the best customer service and to truly value his clients. Neil's team was selected because they share those values - a genuine concern for a customer at what can be a distressing time and a concern to protect their valued homes and properties.
Neil Raw is regularly invited to provide specialist advice and report on pest problems on such shows as Today Tonight and on Channel 10 News.
