Winter Pest Control

Get Ahead With Winter Pest Control

The best way to prevent infestation is to take precautionary measures.

  1. Barricade any holes in both your roof and walls of your home. 

  2. Ensure your property doesn’t have any rubbish sitting around.
    Pests are drawn to food scraps, so it’s always best to maintain a clean and tidy home.
  3. Ensure your yearly residential pest treatment is carried out 

  4. Keeping up with your regular Termite Pest Control inspections is the first way to reduce cost in the future with termite treatments.

Now, let’s talk about why pests enjoy moving in to our homes during Winter months:

Since cockroaches are nocturnal you may notice these little critters at night and less during the day.
You should find your cockroaches die soon after crossing your invisible pest treatment line. If you notice an abundance of baby cockroaches that aren’t dying, then it’s time to give your pest treatment provider a call as this could be a sign of a new infestation.

While there are hundreds of cockroach species, the most common you will find in Australia are German cockroach and the Australian cockroach, the latter which can reach sizes of almost 4cm.

During Winter months cockroaches will seek shelter at night, so keep the inside and outside of your home free of food scraps and garbage, but also try to avoid leaving food in the sink over night.
The number one reason for preventing cockroaches from being free to roam your home is that they can carry very dangerous pathogens, one of which is salmonella. Another suspected health condition is Hepatitis A, which can cause fatigue or joint pain.

So, if your home is clean and free from garbage or rubbish then the next step is to look for any crevices or holes which should be repaired to prevent these pests finding an entry point into your home.

Rodents – Rats and Mice:

Let’s talk about Roof Rats – as the name suggests you will find these pests scurrying inside your roof. Rats can do extreme damage. Read about what one pack of rats did to a customers Airconditioning cables.
Rats and mice also like to feed off food scraps and seek warmth during cooler months. So, barricade any potential entry points, repoint tiles or repair broken tiles in your roof to deter rats or mice from entering your home.

Pest control is your first line of defence so if you haven’t booked in to have a yearly pest treatment then you can quickly and easily book in with us.

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.
