What do you do when your professional pest controller becomes the pest?
Hannah Shaw had a problem with spiders and flies around her house, and she wanted them gone.
So, she employed an organic pest control company by the name of Wild Weta.
But Hannah says the company's spray treatment didn't work. The company also failed to return her phone calls, until Hannah says she threatened Fair Go.
David Thornber employed Wild Weta to spray for borer, but the company failed to deliver the guarantee it had promised him, or return his phone calls.
We looked in to Wild Weta, and discovered its sprays aren't organic.
Wild Weta's Craig Beere has apologised, and changed the way he advertises his spray treatments, removing the word organic.
We also take a look at how effective natural sprays are for treating common pests.

Horrible own goal for power company and telemarketer
Kaye from the Manawatu got a phone call offering a great deal on her power bill. She took it, as did hundreds of other Manawatu residents.
It was from Nova Energy, a retailer owned by the Todd Group.
But we think there was a problem. We think the offer was a dud. We think the telemarketer didn't offer a fair comparison.
It seems the price offered excluded GST and included the prompt payment discount (PPD) that energy companies routinely offer. Add those on, and the prices were nothing special.
There's another problem. We can't prove the prices were dud and Nova can't prove the prices were fair, because there's no recording of the sales call. The telemarketing company had a technology meltdown. It can't access 16 days of recordings.
We think this is a horrible own goal for Nova and its telemarketing partner, Active Communications Consultants.
To their credit, both agree and both apologise profusely.
Kaye doesn't want to be a Nova customer but other unhappy customers are being offered two months' free power.
We want to hear from you if you got the Nova sales pitch, or if you've got any problem with power company marketing.
'TILL DEBT DO US PART

In most of the "wedding-gone-wrong" stories we get here at Fair Go, it's the bride and groom who feel they've been let down. This story's a bit different.
Three small business suppliers owed a total of almost $9000, by a bride who planned her big day in expensive style, then failed to pay them what they're owed. Five months later, they're still waiting.
We talk to two of them; wedding stylist Amber Roper (who did the bridal party flowers) and members of the band Halo (who played at the reception) about the efforts they've made to get their money from the bride - beauty pageant boss Michyla Harry. And we hear from Michyla herself, about why they haven't seen their money.
