Tips To Select A Good Pest Control Service

Pest control is not a do-it-yourself job. You need the services of authorized and licensed pest control providers, when the bug infestation needs the use of chemical products. However, it is a very daunting task to find the best pest control service for your home or office premises.

Here is a list of important points to consider, before you pick a Newcastle pest control service provider

  • Check for the credibility of the company offering pest control services. The company should be bonded and insured to save you and your property from liability. Always select a reputed company with experience in treating bugs. Check for the testimonials of clients who have already used the services of the company.
  • The most important thing to do after you select a provider is to ask for the authorizations and licenses of the technician. The technicians, who perform pest control should be certified and should participate in the yearly training programs to keep the license current. The technician should have full knowledge about various bugs and their treatment procedures.
  • Check for the professional appearance of the technicians and equipment used by the company. All the equipment and products used by the company should be of high standard and appear professional. The products should be eco-friendly and organic. They should not harm the humans and pets but should be effective on the bugs.
  • It is better to choose a company based on the referral of your family and friends. This will help you to be sure of the quality of service. You can also check the pest control association ratings to get a clearer picture of the company standards.
  • Do not be misguided for the low price services advertised by the different companies. There may be many hidden costs or the company must be simply trying to fool you by offering a sub standard service.
  • Select a suitable service contract depending on your requirement. The companies offer different contracts like monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and yearly maintenance contracts. Choose the monthly contract if your premises is infested with pests and needs an urgent solution. Once the problem is solved, you can opt for quarterly or half-yearly contract.

These considerations make your task of selecting a Newcastle pest control service very easy. Just call the company and ask for an inspection of your premises and stay safe from the irritating problem of bugs.

ASEAN Media Trip Set To Advertise Myanmar

Tourists and visitors to any hotel in Myanmar Yangon should expect some media from across the region, as a week-long ASEAN media trip to the country has been arranged, which will take the participating media representatives to the country’s notable attractions, including the city of Yangon.

The Myanmar Travel Bloggers Club was responsible for organizing the trip, which will have 30 participating media representatives from leading networks and publications from the ASEAN region, such as Thailand’s Spring News, Malaysia’s New Straits Times, and Cambodia’s Phnom Penh Post, among others, as well as popular travel bloggers from these countries.

The details were revealed by Club Chairman Ma May Zune Win, who says that Myanmar has rarely used foreign media in its attempts to market itself as a tourist destination, with the trip being a good way to introduce the country to foreign media via seasoned representatives, who are regular attendees of travel events and exhibitions, before coming up with a tourist marketing strategy for the country.

The conflict in Myanmar’s Northern Rakhine State has scared off more than few Western and European visitors, with local tour operators adapting by focusing on the ASEAN region as their main target. According to Ma May Zune Win, it’s because Myanmar knows the situation within the ASEAN region well, with direct air link and no VISA requirements for entrance.

Ma May Zune Win says that it’s not important where the visitors hail from, only that they come into the country, sign into a hotel in Myanmar Yangon or anywhere else, and fill the hotels.

The trip has not received any official support from the Ministry of Hotel and Tourism, nor from privately-owned travel groups, but Ma May Zune Win says that groups like Shwe Pyi Nan Myanmar Thanakhar are helping with the funding.

The familiarization tour will be aimed at more countries the next time, with media representatives from other countries in Asia such Japan, and South Korea being considered.

With the lack of proper funding for overseas promotion, the Myanmar Ministry of Hotel and Tourism is planning on collecting taxes from travellers, amounting to US$1 for foreign travellers, and K1000 for domestic ones.

According to data from the Ministry, Myanmar welcomed 3.44M international visitors in 2017, up by 18% from the previous year, with 1.36M coming in with VISAs and 2.08M coming in via the border checkpoints.

Thai Government Supportive Of Marine Industry

If the reason for your travel to Thailand is to experience diving in the Similan Islands, your best option is Thailand liveaboad that allows you to spend a few days enjoying a dive life. Aside from an experienced dive guide, you will enjoy amenities similar to what 5-star hotels in Bangkok offer. You will never regret the decision to experience liveaboard because it is once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

According to Vrit Yongsakul, group managing director of Boat Lagoon Yachting, the yacht industry is expecting a 10% growth rate this year. The yacht sector in Thailand is currently undergoing fundamental changes in facilities, infrastructure and public understanding of yachting as a sport. The Thai government has also reduced the import taxes on boats over the last ten years.

Thailand is fast becoming a boating haven. There is greater of understanding of the boating culture due to expertise gained from abroad. At present, there are 150 yachts in Thailand. Some of them stay in the islands for an average of 2 months. A day of stay in Thailand cost more than 100,000 baht per person.

According to Boat Lagoon Yachting that is also providing boat charter services and after-sales services for Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Maldives, the prices of boats range from 20 million to 4 billion baht. The company managed to sell 30 boats last year with a growth rate of 10% to 15%.

Thailand has the most extensive maintenance facilities in Southeast Asia because the government is supportive of marine tourism. However, in spite of Thailand’s edge over other countries in terms of facilities and infrastructure, there is still competition. To cope up with competition, there must be improvements in repair and berthing facilities to attract more superyachts to come to Thailand. The government is on the process of reviewing various formalities to simplify licenses and visas to attract more charters to the region.

Government support for marine tourism is good news for Thailand Liveaboad that provides tourists a vacation they will never forget. The Similan Islands is considered as one of the best dive sites in the world because of the abundant marine life, white sandy beaches, living corals and underwater treasures of the Andaman Sea.
