Default Pest control

Hi,

We've had an outbreak of ants and want to get the balcony sprayed.

Can anyone recommend any decent companies to use?

Thanks!

No need to get a company in. Go to Lulu and buy some MegaGel for Dhs 25. Put dots of it in the corners etc and you won't get any ants for six months.

Best Dhs 25 you will ever spend.

I had some flies or something in my kitchen once, the array of aggressive bug sprays here is fantastic. There was more than likely some better but I'm a sucker for branding and couldn't buy anything but Pif Paf. What a name.

Mega Gel is better than any spray and you only have to put some down every six months. I was skeptical until I tried it but it's marvelous stuff. You can tuck into corner so children and animals don't have to go near it and as it's a gel that sets fairly hard you don't breathe in any nasty chemicals.

You'll thank me later.

We've got an invasion of small roaches and other bugs that may be trying to get jiggy with them and freely multiplying. The kitchen is appalling. The restaurant in the bottom of the building is no doubt the master lair. Someone said paid some pakistani rentakill type guys 150 to sort the apartment out for six months. Are they just going to clean, spray and then drop stuff in the corner or do they have access to industrial (controlled) stuff we can't get?

So, someone in the Middle East should contact a US company, sounds a lot like an advert for people you work for, which is totally against forum rules.
