Tackling household pest control without any stress

No one wants the horror of finding a pest in your home, let alone an infestation. That’s why it’s important to address and understand household pest control.

Common household pests, such as termites, can cause serious damage to your property and cause unwanted repair and expense in the future.

Pests can also pose a risk to your health, with NSW Health warning that there are a number of pests in Australia that carry diseases and parasites.

To avoid infestations and potential health hazards, it is vital to keep on top of any pest control issue that presents itself in your home, no matter the size.

Common pests found in Australian homes

The NSW Department of Primary Industries has identified a list of common pests that present a threat to our environment and wellbeing in the home. These include both insect and vertebrate pests.

We target a wide range of critters that are considered to be common Australian homes, including:

  • Ants
  • Spiders
  • Bees
  • Wasps
  • Carpet beetles
  • Cockroaches
  • Fleas
  • Pigeons
  • Rodents
  • Silverfish
  • Rats
  • Mice
  • Termites


What are they doing hanging around?

Many pests are drawn to your home for a variety of reasons, so identifying the cause of an infestation may start with which pests are actually the problem.

Pests such as cockroaches, rats and mice are often drawn to food and warm environments, and commonly carry a variety of diseases.

Whilst you might not be able to see the pests themselves, you can often find their droppings and even hear rats and mice in in your walls or ceilings. This is often a good indication of the start household pest control issue that needs a solution.

Ants are another common pest found in residential environments that have been known to cause painful bites and destroy electrical wiring in your home.

They are drawn to warm and sunny places, and feed on organic matter. If you see an increasing number of ants in your home, it might be time to consider professional domestic pest control services.

Termites are known to be one of the most expensive pests. A University of Technology Sydney’s study found that these small but mighty pests cause more than $1.5 billion in damage to Australian homes every year.

Termites love warm weather and are fond of damaging homes with timber used in their construction, as this is their main source of food.
