Cockroaches – The masters at spreading disease, to almost everything they touch!
It is believed that the cockroach may be a reservoir for a range of bacteria including salmonella, staphylococcus and streptococcus.
The cockroach can also Harbor viruses such as polio virus.
If you’ve noticed 1 or 2 cockroaches around your home, you can guarantee that there are many more hiding in the walls, kitchen cupboards, cracked walls, drains, sinks, grease traps, food storage areas and other dark places around your home or place of work.
Cockroaches breed very quickly, which means having them assessed and treated quickly is critical to avoid Infestation.

The trick to effectively treating cockroach infestation is to treat them quickly and effectively.
Professional spider control is important for people with a real fear of spiders but also to control a large or repeat Infestation.
Spiders are usually not aggressive towards humans and generally only bite or cause problems when their space is invaded and they feel threatened.
However, the sight of spiders, especially in large groups, can evoke uneasiness and fear.
Spiders often venture inside in search of food, but will move on quickly if nothing is available. Eliminate spider webs you see around the corners of home, office, storage areas or behind furniture.
If you do find your home or business has a severe spider problem, leave it to the professionals. Our staff will ensure that spiders are not only professionally controlled, but will also show you how to prevent them from coming back in the future.
Silverfish seek shelter in dark, out of the way places like clothing, warehouses, food and document storage areas. Like many other insects, silverfish are rapid breeders and when left unattended, they can do considerable damage.
Like cockroaches, silverfish can last a long time without food and can be hard to be removed once their colony is established. Ensure your office, factory or home is cleaned regularly to eliminate food crumbs and other sources of food.
Fix leaking taps to eliminate their water source, as silverfish love moisture.
Silverfish can be a real problem for commercial businesses, creating some uncomfortable situations for customers and employees. Not only will silverfish cause damage to many of your goods, they will also spread contamination in foods.
Like most pests a regular routine inspection and preventative treatment is the best way to avoid infestation.
Have you noticed itchiness or bites on your legs and arms? Chances are you may have a flea infestation in your home or commercial workspace.
Although fleas pose very little risks to your overall health, they do cause considerable discomfort and frustration due to itching.
Family pets however are at risk and susceptible to diseases that fleas carry. It is important to treat your pets and area in which your pets live to avoid further infestation to your home or place of work.
Like most pests in your family home or commercial workspace, early detection and treatment is critical in preventing infestation.
Ants can be a nuisance when they get into your home or business.
Ants will travel searching for food and water, following trails they have established and clustering around the source of food.
Small piles of earth around holes in soil and at the base of exterior walls indicate their origin.
Handy tips for reducing ant infestations in your home:
- Track down where they are coming in and seal off the entry point.
- Clear up any sticky residues on worktops, because ants are attracted to sweet things.
- Cover up any foodstuffs which could be a food source for ants

Rodents can be a problem in your home or commercial premise when they move indoors in search of both shelter and food.
Rodents construct their nests utilising soft materials, such as shredded paper or fabrics, close to areas where they scavenge for food and water. These nests are usually situated in wall cavities, roof voids or underfloor areas, anywhere that provides a safe haven away from predators.
The adult female is capable of giving birth to 4-6 litters per year, each litter containing between 5-10 young, which themselves are capable of reproduction three months after birth. Within a period of a year the mating of a single pair of rodents can result in a rodent population of over 400.
Rodents deposit their droppings on all surfaces on which they travel and this, together with stains caused by their almost continual urination, provide obvious indications of the presence of rodents. Greasy smear marks also become evident along their main routes of movement where they make contact with obstacles. Rodents are equipped with incisor teeth that continually grow, and it is essential they gnaw at frequent intervals to ensure that these teeth are sufficiently short to enable them to feed and fight. Fire can result from short-circuiting caused when rodents gnaw electrical conduiting.
Like all pest problems around your home or business, early detection and treatment is critical to preventing an infestation. Control procedures include attention to sanitation and hygiene, trapping, proofing of entry points, and the use of baiting procedures.
