Echidna’s Andy Just Keeps on Kicking Goals

Andy Richards, the owner-operator of Echidna Termite and Pest Solutions in Adelaide is, by anyone’s standards, busy.

“Richo” coaches and plays in the SA Collegiate league soccer competition, as well as competing in trail running events in the off-season.

If that isn’t enough, on the weekends and “free” time, he is often found walking on the beach or the bush trails with his wife Taresa, and their dog, Cuba.

Great Scott

When Adelaide’s Scott Lamb started with Garrards, Queen Elizabeth II was our monarch, eggs cost 87 cents a dozen and the national population was 17.66 million people.

Meat Loaf had the number one single, “I’d Do Anything For Love” in 1993, but how things have changed!

Meat Loaf has since passed, Australia is now home to 25.69 million people, or at least according to the 2021 census, and Scott Lamb is still going strong.

Garrards Roadshows – 2023 – It’s a Wrap!

It was an early start – Adelaide, Mildura and Melbourne in March, then to New Zealand in May with five Garrards Roadshows, from Queenstown to Auckland.

Australian Roadshows started in Albury in late May and worked through New South Wales and Queensland to Cairns, with Roadshows every second week, though to mid-July.

A final trip to the west, Bunbury and Perth, pulled the curtain down for 2023.

Good Lordy, Audy

They breed them tough in the tropics, or so it would seem.

Audy Geiszler, of Audy Geiszler Pest Control in Bowen, services far and wide: Airlie Beach, Emerald, Mackay, Sarina and Twonsville and the Whitsundays.

It was a case of Audy almost going missing when he heard hissing, when he recently found brown tree snakes using a rodent bait box for a cosy morning snooze.

Chris, the Flyman, Leaves a Paper Trail

What appears, on the surface at least, to be a massive career change has led to pest management work in far-flung areas of South Australia for Chris Coote

Chris  and his wife Amanda own-and-operate Flyman SA Pest & Termite Management – a far cry from his former 27-year career in newspapers, including as managing editor of the ‘Port Lincoln Times.’

It isn’t too far though from Chris’ time in the building industry before his media stint.

Port Lincoln is the only place in Australia to cage dive with great white sharks, and for nine months after he left the ‘Times,’ Chris worked at Calypso Star Charters, the dominant shark cage diving company, as Office Manager.
