Rodents contaminate more food than they eat and in doing so spread diseases harmful to humans. Most activity takes place at night, so you are much more likely to hear a rodent than to see it.
Cockroaches will eat anything humans eat and breed very quickly, they stay close to areas that have a constant food and water supply. The two main species in Sydney are German and American cockroaches.
Red backs, White tails and house spiders are all very common in Sydney. They will make their webs wherever food is available to them. When you notice spiders, leave their webs in place so these can also be treated.
Our technicians are experienced in treating black and brown ants to both the interior and exterior of homes and buildings. Help deter ants by keeping the kitchen free of food scraps.
Bees require treatment before they cause a serious allergic reaction in a stung human. Wasps also require treatment and can sting many times very quickly, so do not spray with aerosols as you will aggravate them.
Possums are protected in NSW so please contact us to trap them safely. Do not bait them as you can be fined or prosecuted. A thorough inspection needs to be carried out to the roof to locate the possum entrances.
A destructive timber pest which can cause major structural damage to your home. Depending on the species of borer, a treatment may be required and timber replacement may also be necessary.
A disease spreading parasite which attacks rodents, pets and humans alike. The treatments we use are safe for your family and effective in breaking their life cycle. We cannot treat pets, please contact your vet.
Silverfish prefer to live in dark undisturbed places such as roof and wall voids. Treatment is usually required all areas using a combination of chemicals to ensure the infestation is eradicated.
Lice require chemical treatment to areas of infestation (usually roof). To prevent this recurring, repair any broken tiles and damaged timbers to stop access. Birds can be deterred by the installation of spikes.
Usually the best treatment is to dispose of infested food stuff in a sealed plastic bag. Surfaces can be treated if required but food items cannot. Unless there is a widespread problem disposal of the infected food stuff will resolve the issue.
Require a very thorough treatment, and depending on the severity of the infestation, follow up visits may be required. Bites occur in the early hours and these bug can hide anywhere.
Don’t just attack carpet and prefer to stay around areas where there is little disturbance such as under furniture and around skirting boards. Carpet beetles do all their damage in larva stage.
