I later saw that they were using a chemical-free solution and was relieved. The team completed the pest control work within the estimated time and delivered the best result.

I have my own business in Canberra so I know that regular inspections and pest control treatments are important. But for the past few months, the pest control company we hired hasn't done a good job. I never saw dead pests and the pest population continued to increase. So after some time I canceled the service and chose Markss Pest Control Canberra. After the technician from Markss Pest Control Canberra came to inspect and the pest control service was completed, we went to sleep. When we came back the next day we were surprised to see dead pests everywhere. We are very grateful for the quick and accurate removal of them. We will maintain Markss Pest Control Canberra recurring services for the foreseeable future.

It's been almost 10 years since I've lived in Canberra and during that long time I've tried quite a few pest control companies in Canberra.
