WHO IS SPIDERMAN SE?
Spiderman SE Eco Pest Management is an environmentally-friendly pest control, termite management and inspection business servicing the South East of SA and South West of VIC, including the Green Triangle and Limestone Coast regions.
Established in Mount Gambier in October 2014, we've built our small business from the ground up. Our brand, our people, our character and our reputation mean everything to us. We pride ourselves on being an un-franchised, local, family-owned business; providing top quality service with attention to detail and a genuine, friendly approach.
Our pest management technicians are locals; they live here, they know our local area and our local conditions. They are fully qualified, licensed and insured and between them, have many years of experience in the pest control industry. They understand pest behaviour, know which products are safe to use within homes, commercial and food premises and they are technically skilled in offering suggestions on how to prevent further pest problems.
At Spiderman SE, we're saving the world, one pest at a time.
Customer service and satisfaction is our number one priority. We know word of mouth is our greatest advertisement and we're not happy unless you are!
Our Mission is simple:
To provide our clients with the best service in the industry, by ensuring all technicians are licenced and participate in ongoing practical and theoretical training.
To put safety before profit by using only the safest products available on the market.
To provide peace of mind with our stringent security measures, ensuring clients' premises are safeguarded and secure.
To constantly monitor our services with our quality control procedures.
To be readily available to liaise with our clients at any time, allowing us to answer queries or problem-solve in a timely manner.
To ensure our customers are 100% satisfied with our service by aiming to provide the safest, most effective pest control solutions at the most competitive prices.
Our company’s foundation is built on our values, which distinguish us and guide our actions. We conduct our business in a socially responsible and ethical manner. We respect the law, support universal human rights, protect the environment and benefit the communities where we work.

PEST MANAGEMENT TECHNICIAN,
TIMBER PEST INSPECTOR
Michael is Mount Gambier born and bred. In 2013 Michael took a leap of faith to leave his 20-year occupation as an analyst at our local Carter Holt Harvey dry mill and forge a career in the world of pest management and business-ownership.
Michael's always been a people-person and with his love of a friendly banter, his incredible work ethic and passion for customer service, he has been integral in delivering on our mission to provide the best service in the industry.
Michael is fully qualified and licensed to manage both General and Timber Pests in SA and VIC and has been added to the Australian Environmental Pest Managers Association (AEPMA) Timber Pest Inspectors Register.

Born and raised in Mount Gambier, Sam quickly proved he is a perfect fit in keeping with Spiderman SE’s mission, values and standards. Having been in the workforce since his teens, Sam’s work ethic, initiative and drive are outstanding and have been evident from his first day on the job.
Sam is a fully qualified Beekeeper and Pest Management Technician (excluding Timber Pests) and continues to study his Certificate III in Urban Pest Management.

TRAINEE PEST MANAGEMENT TECHNICIAN
We are absolutely chuffed to have Kody Shaw join the Spiderman SE Family.

Kody has a dual role at Spiderman SE and is undertaking a Certificate III in Business Traineeship, while also working towards becoming a qualified General Pest Management Technician.

OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
At Spiderman SE, we are 100% committed to providing our clients with the most effective treatment possible while at the same time ensuring the safety of our environment.
There are so many environmental benefits of the products and application methods we use at Spiderman SE, but here are just a few:
Spiderman SE technicians apply our surface sprays using hand-pumped backpacks. This method ensures peace and quiet and requires no fuels or emission-producing power sources. We don't use smelly, noisy generators or bring messy hoses through your property.
Our surface sprays are 100% safe, biodegradable and they dry completely clear. They are non-irritant and don’t smell.
We never use fumigants or use gasses in our treatments.
The products we spray go exactly where they're meant to go! We will absolutely not leave run-off streaming down your walls, paths, drains etc.
The Spiderman SE team acknowledges just how essential honey bees are to our environment. If you have a swarm or hive of honey bees at your property and you need them gone, we would prefer that you contact a local apiarist (beekeeper) to see if they can remove the hive or relocate the swarm to their own hives.
In addition to our treatments, our office is also keeping with our eco-friendly business model. As of March 2017, the majority of our operational systems at Spiderman SE are paper-free. The adoption of a brand new software application means that we're electronic all the way!
All of our record-keeping is online and written correspondence with clients (apart from those few that still prefer a snail mail) is via email and text. The adoption of this new system has seen a massive reduction in the use and waste of paper at Spiderman SE and has resulted in more efficient administration and a much better experience for our clients.
At Spiderman SE Eco Pest Management, we like to keep it local. The Green Triangle and Limestone Coast is our home and supporting community events, clubs and organisations is important to us! In addition, there are a few National and International charities that we are proud to contribute to.
Spiderman SE proudly supports the following groups:
National Breast Cancer Foundation
The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public. With Sarah undergoing successful treatment for Grade 3 Triple-Negative Breast Cancer in 2019, this is a charity very close to the Spiderman SE family's hearts.
Spiderman SE is a proud Pink Ribbon Partner of the NBCF.
Cambodian Rice Run's mission is to work in partnership with existing non-Government Organisations and communities in Cambodia, providing regular food security to identified at-risk families. They aim to assist in breaking the cycle of poverty and disadvantage through both their food programs and by providing access to emergency relief for trusted NGOs where needed.
