Autumn Pest Control

Get Ahead With Autumn Pest Control

Autumn is a very beautiful time of year in Australia. As the leaves of our trees start to turn a rich orange and red colour, the cooler temperatures are the start of pests to seek warmth and shelter indoors, making your home the optimal environment for pests, such as rats, mice, cockroaches and spiders.

The most common Autumn pests in Sydney, Australia are:

Rodents such as rats and mice can do significant damage to cables, insulation and furniture. During Autumn rodents will seek shelter in homes. However, rats and mice aren’t a house guest that you will want. They can contaminate food, become destructive and carry diseases. Preventing rats and mice from entering your home is the best way to stop entry. Pest control will be your best line of defence if rodents manage to find an entry point.

Termites – Subterranean termites are pests that are active all year round and thrive in damp autumn weather. This is because timber can become wet offering a suitable food source for termites. Whilst they cause significant damage, you’re more likely to notice the damage before noticing the termites due to their secretive nature. Except for one customer who found termites in a potted plant that they brought inside from their garden.

Cockroaches – cockroaches are another pest that are active all year round. You may find cockroaches become more active during autumn months as they start to seek shelter from the dropping temperatures.
Understanding why cockroaches can be harmful to your family is important, and precautionary measure to keep them out of your home should be taken. Understanding some great tips and tricks is a great place to start on your journey to preventing pests from coming into your home.

Spiders – Spiders are a common sight in Australia, and while most are harmless, some species can be dangerous. During autumn, spiders often enter homes searching for food or a warm place to hibernate. Some common spiders in Australia include black house spiders, redbacks, huntsman spiders, golden orb spiders and wolf spiders.

I've used KR Pest Control a few years ago and was just as happy this time around for our place in Kellyville Ridge. We had to move our original booking and they accommodated the last minute change without issue. We had Owen this time and he was great. Good communication, tips, info, etc. and the overall service was quick yet thorough. Would recommend and will use again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Looking for an answer to a common question? Read through some of our most commonly asked questions.

Termites, Cockroaches (both large and small), spiders (all kinds) ants, silverfish and rodents.

All areas are covered in our pest sprays without exclusion. This will include all applicable areas externally, internally, gardens, pathways, letterbox, driveway, windows, eaves, guttering, weep holes, garage, sheds, cubby houses, washing lines, subfloor, roof void, storage areas and fences. We also use cockroach bait in kitchen cupboard hinges. We do not spray fruit trees or herb gardens, fish ponds and fish tanks. Please advise our technician of any area you would like excluded before commencement.

If the forecast is for heavy rain it’s best to reschedule – light rain is fine. We need enough time for the external spray to fully dry for it to be effective. If it is forecast to rain not long after the treatment we will call you to reschedule. If it is windy we may also need to reschedule as we cannot control our spray and it may pose a risk to our technician or your neighbours.

Generally, you can be home while we spray. We ask you keep some footwear on for at least two hours and stay inside. Pregnant women and young children must vacate for two hours.

Internally – We spray around all skirting boards, please move loose items at least 30cm from the wall or onto tables or beds. It is not necessary to move large pieces of furniture. The more coverage we can achieve the more effective the spray will be. We don’t use anything airborne internally so there is no need to cover benches or other sensitive areas. Externally – Ensure pet toys and bowls are put away, children toys should be neat and tidy all in the the one area so we can create a ‘safe zone’ that isn’t exposed to any spray. Please remove all washing from clothes lines.

Yes we ensure your pets are safe, our staff have tarpaulins on board for bird and rabbit hutches. We make sure pet bowls are turned upside down before we start spraying and ask for any pet toys to be put away. The pets can be stored in an area like the garage or laundry whilst the rest of the house is treated then released after one hour or alternatively if they can be taken out of the house for 1-2 hours, it will be safe when they return. During the warmer months the external spray dries within 10 minutes so if we start outside the pets can be let into the yard when we start spraying internally.

We ensure that your children are safe, this is achieved with safe practices and the use of the safest products used in the correct areas. No children’s play equipment or toys are sprayed with residual products. We have a non-residual aerosol we can use to treat spiders and other pests in these areas. We also have a company policy not to spray a house with anyone pregnant or young children inside.

No it is not necessary to clean the floors, our internal water based spray is microencapsulated meaning once it is fully dry it is safe, it is recommended you do not mop the floors for 48 hours after our spray.

We also offer termite inspections and treatments, possum control/removal, rodent proofing and bed bugs treatments, speak to our friendly staff for more information.
