The Steves family-owned pest control business is opening for business on Sunday.

Owner, Steve Steves, has been in the pest control industry for almost 50 years and says the opportunity is great.

“We have had great support from our local pest control company, as well as the Australian Government,” he said.

“The Government of Australia has backed us and we are really grateful.”

He says the business is already operating in a good environment and there are many people looking to make use of it.

“I’ve always been a big believer in using local ingredients and local produce and we’ve got a lot of people wanting to buy products locally,” he added.

“With our new business coming on line we have a great opportunity for the community to come in and make use, so I think it’s really exciting.”
