Hours of business

This is a tricky one, In the pest management industry for the small operators, Hours of business is whenver the phone rings or when ever the client wants us at their place.

Pretty well, the same goes for us.

We do however try and keep some weekends free to enjoy the finer things in life ( typically for Bruce, that's spending time with his ute)

We choose not to answer the phone when we are with clients, so please leave us a message and we will ring back as soon as we are able.
