Common Pests


There are more than 35,000 species of spiders worldwide, a few thousand of which (including the most dangerous) are found in Australia alone.

Spiders can be a particular nuisance in the home. They are attracted to warm, dark small spaces, like wall cracks, corners, air vents, and in the eaves of your home.


Cockroaches are closely associated with the human environment and have become pests worldwide. Cockroaches are attracted to buildings where there is food, moisture and, in colder climates, warmth. They feed on a wide range of human foods and also organic materials such as cardboard, glue, faeces, dead animals and fellow cockroaches.


As the majority of ant species prefer sunny climates, our environment is perfect for ants to thrive. Ants are ubiquitous. Out of around 15,000 ant species and subspecies worldwide, Australia has just over 1,300 known species so far. The most familiar ant species in Australia are…

There are over 300 different species of mosquito in Australia however, very few of them are of major concern. Mosquitos are at their most active in the morning or at night, particularly in summer when the air is hot and humid.

Mosquitoes appear as small, almost midge-like flies that have long, tube-like mouthparts…


Rats Rat control is important to avoid a number of serious diseases, which rats are known to transmit. The Center for Disease Control lists nearly a dozen diseases directly linked to rats. Rats can be very persistent and if they manage to gain access into your home or business they can spread these diseases, cause considerable damage…


Mice were introduced to Australia by the first European settlers and they have been a problem ever since.

They can multiply quickly and will do significant damage to your home, business and furniture through their gnawing activities. They will also contaminate food and other materials through the droppings they leave behind.

Wasps & Bees

Being stung by a wasp or bee is a painful experience and can be life-threatening to anyone who may be allergic to stings. It is possible to reduce the risks by taking sensible precautions when outdoors and ensuring that wasp or bee nests are properly managed.


Flies are extremely common around Austalia and they are a pest in every sense of the word. They pose a health risk to humans, pets and livestock and can infest your business and spread diseases like Salmonella and E. coli. A few species may even bite humans and animals.


Fleas are a common problem in homes, especially those with pets. You may discover a problem with fleas even if you do not have pets, if previous owners of your property kept cats or dogs.

Fleas may also be carried on other, especially hairy, animals like rabbits, foxes, rats, mice and livestock such as pigs.


While the warmer seasons are a great time for you and your family members to enjoy the outdoors, ticks will be there too, hiding in the foliage of your garden and ready for a bite. Ticks are responsible for the transmission of many diseases to both humans and animals. Out of all the arthropods, ticks spread the widest array of disease-causing organisms.

Possum Removal

Possums are a protected native species in Australia and are loved and adored by many, but they can become a problem if they find their way into your home or workplace.

Like rats and mice, possums like to chew and can cause damage to electrical wiring which can spark a fire. This can put your family, home, or business at great risk.


Silverfish are found in many different parts of the world, such as North and South America, Africa, as well as Australia. These somewhat harmless looking insects live in humid environments and survive by feeding on a variety of substances and objects throughout a regular home environment, and as such have earned the title of pest.


Moths are close relatives of butterflies and this is shown in their large wings. However, there are a number of characteristics that moths have that distinguish them from butterflies. The most telling is the size and shape of their antennae. Butterflies tend to have thin antennae with what appears to be a small ball, or ‘club’ on the end.

Bird Mites

Bird mites are a group of mite species that infest birds of various kinds, ranging from wild birds such as sparrows and ducks to the familiar domestic fowl such as turkeys and chickens. The chicken mite, which resembles a tiny, glossy brown seed with legs, is one of the mite varieties that come in contact with humans most often…


Textile pests include moths and many beetle species that feed on the natural protein ‘Keratin’. This can be found in any textile of animal origin including wool, mohair, silk, animal hair, leather and feathers.

It is only when these insects become established in your property, and are left untreated…

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are becoming an increasing problem worldwide and many travellers encounter them in their accommodation. One of the biggest fears of travellers is waking up in a hotel bed with the tell-tale bites and droplets of blood on the sheets! They are also an increasing problem in student accommodation, care homes, and apartments.


Some bird species are considered a real nuisance for businesses. They are known to cause property damage by dislodging roof tiles, blocking guttering, building nests and leaving droppings that corrode building material. They can be aggressive and attack customers and employees, especially during the breeding season when they are defending their young.
