Competitive Pest Control releases world-first Spider Bite iPhone app

Download free from the App Store

Innovative Sydney-based pest control company Competitive Pest Control has just released the Spider Bite app, a smartphone app to assist clients in identifying household and backyard pests as summer reaches its peak. The brand new Spider Bite app is available free of charge and is useful for parents, teachers, home owners, gardeners, and those travelling around Australia – basically, anyone who spends time outdoors.
Company director Gary Journeaux says the app was developed primarily as a safety tool. “The beauty of the Australian climate is that our backyards become an extension of our living space in that we tend to live outdoors in the warmer months,” he says. “However, since spiders love our gardens as much as we do, it’s important to be aware of them to keep the family safe.”

Journeaux says the app includes images and descriptions of spiders, insects and other pests that allow users to quickly identify potential threats in and around the home. Better yet, if an incident occurs, the app quickly dispenses first aid advice so users can immediately take action, which is of crucial importance when children are involved. “Once downloaded, the app ensures parents are armed with information, so if their child does encounter a creepy-crawly, the threat can be easily assessed, without having to consult Google or search frantically for that long-lost spider chart,” says Journeaux.

Cleverly, the app allows you to call 000 directly, so precious seconds aren’t wasted in the event of an emergency. It also links directly to your smartphone’s camera, so you can instantly snap a photo of the spider to assist hospital staff in identification, while allowing the treatment to be tailored to the species of spider.

Additionally, if you’re concerned about pests in and around your home, you can also call Competitive Pest Control directly from the app, making it a cinch to arrange a consultation. Competitive Pest Control offers its customers a 200% money-back guarantee, so if a client is not satisfied with its services, the company won’t just give their money back, they’ll pay for the pest problem to be solved by the competition. “Customer satisfaction is enormously important to us, and we’re confident our clients will be completely happy with what we do, or they will receive their money back twofold. Either way, they win.”
