You’ve heard about the pest that would be the only thing capable of living after a nuclear explosion: the cockroach.
In fact, there are four hundred different species of cockroaches; out of which ten are native to Sydney. It has also been noted that most of these species can live without food for up to one month. Their population tends to reproduce heavily at an incredible and fast rate. Cockroaches are usually attracted to food available in your house. They will eat anything from foods, paper, packaging, plastics and fabrics to animal matter (eg. animal droppings). They can climb and enter every nook and cranny available. Cockroaches also can carry disease-causing bacteria, such as salmonella, dysentery and gastroenteritis, to name a few. With so many negatives associated with cockroaches, why take the risk? North Sydney Pest Management know these risks and know how to eliminate these risks. With environmentally friendly insecticides, industry leading strategies and a highly experienced team, we can get rid of any cockroach problem.
Ants are ubiquitous and Australia has over 1,300 known species of ants so far. Ants tend to be a major problem in homes due to their size, they can literally enter your house by crawling through any crack, and once they locate a food source they leave a chemical trail for other ants to follow. Meaning, just one ant in your home means that many, many more will be soon to follow. Furthermore, due to their adaptability they can practically nest anywhere in your house or garden. Most DIY ant control chemicals are not formulated to deal with all ant species, only the most common. You can be guaranteed that our experts will be able to identify which species is nesting in your home and use the right products to get rid of them, all of which are environmentally friendly to humans and your home.

Your house is ideal for rats because they provide food, water, warmth and shelter. Rats are scarily prolific breeders, producing a litter of young almost monthly. This means that just a small rat problem can become a big problem very quickly. If you do see a rat, even just one, it is a sign that an infestation already exists. Rats are also very dirty pests, producing a steady stream of urine to mark their trails, usually all over your floor and benches. Additionally, they produce between 50 and 70 droppings per day! Their droppings are often infectious and can include dangerous bacteria that can lead to various diseases. They do not only just harm your and you family’s health, but they are known to cause damage your house, including chewing through electrical wiring, leading to more health hazards. After a short inspection, our team will use different strategies to eliminate your rat problem, including bait, traps or tracking powders, all of which are environmentally safe.
