Love the app

Used the app to report a number of bugs in my home and garden. All bar one was responded to within hours to a day, with a very detailed and helpful reply. Love it. Thank you.

Unfortunately no response

I submitted a pest with photos but 12 days later I still got no reply.

In theory it’s a good idea but probably they don’t have enough staff to manage it.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. At times we are really busy and might take a bit more time to reply. Users also often forget to submit reports if this is done outside Wi-Fi so we don't receive a report until this happens. In addition, we are a small team of scientists based in Western Australia and may not have the local expertise to identify all organisms, often sending a report to colleagues to review and waiting on their response, which might take a bit more time. We hope in the end you did eventually receive a response and we have improved since your review?
