The complete pest control service

Bug King – we’re your reliable, safe, West Auckland pest control experts. We organise clear quotes, give free advice, and provide guaranteed treatments and a set price, no matter where you are in West Auckland.

There is no place for unwanted guests in your home or business

Call Bug King and you’ll get quality service; we’ll make sure those pests are gone for good. Commercial pest control is not just checking traps; it is about knowing the pest, monitoring the environment and being able to interpret what we find, and we’ve been doing it for over a decade. We know what we’re doing.

Treating pests early saves you money and is more effective. We recommend treating pests before they establish themselves and get out of control.  Wait too long and before you know it, you have a large pest population that is difficult to manage or eradicate.

Safe, effective pest control

At Bug King your health and safety are paramount. We are an experienced Auckland based pest management company and we use safe, low toxic methods when dealing with pests. We use carefully selected pest products, state-of-the-art equipment, and professional application methods.

Safe treatments for pregnancy, children, babies and pets

Our treatments are safe for you, your family and your pets.  Most of our treatments use synthetic pyrethroids, which are based on natural pyrethrums found in the chrysanthemum daisy. 

These chemicals have been proven safe in sensitive situations over several decades. They were approved of by the Health Department, Pesticides Board and Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry before being released for use in the commercial and domestic pest control markets.

How do we get rid of pests?

Pyrethroids mimic the activity of pyrethrins, but they are UV and acid resistant, so they remain effective for longer. We use them for long-term, residual, insect control.  Synthetic Pyrethroids (SP) not only kill insects after they come into contact with a treated surface, but they will also deter them from even entering your home.

All treatments are applied and at a level that won’t affect mammals.

Treatments are also readily metabolized. If you were to come into contact with our pest treatment, it would pass straight through your system; there would be no build-up in your body.

Considered, informed pest control

You will be informed. We will provide you with all the information you need for both before and after any pest treatments. If bait treatments are needed, they are always placed in approved containers and thoughtfully positioned to minimise any risk to children or pets.

What do you have to do?

  • For any internal treatments we ask you to vacate the house for a minimum of four hours. Generally, you should plan to be away from home for about five hours.
  • For external treatments, you can stay at home if you remain inside and close all doors and windows.
  • Preparation and aftercare differ depending on the pest we’re treating for. Instructions for treatments are detailed under the individual pest information pages.

Aftercare for internal treatments can involve, for example:

  • Opening windows and doors to allow your home to air for about 15 minutes.
  • Wiping down all food preparation surfaces using rubber gloves while being careful not to rub your eyes.

Preparation can involve, for example:

  • Covering or putting away exposed foods like fruit bowls, etc.
  • Putting clean dishes, tea towels and paper towels away. 
  • Putting away toothbrushes, towels and toilet paper.
  • Covering fish tanks and turning the pump off.
  • Ensuring pet food is covered or put away.
  • Covering all pillows on beds and covering cots.
