Ants – Macarthur
A large ant colony in Macarthur usually requires the services of a pest control company in Canberra. Our pest controllers deal with all ant species found in Macarthur, including black ants, sugar / carpenter ants, bull ants, white-footed house ants, meat ants, Argentine ants, and fire ants. Treating ants requires an in-depth knowledge of ant species (to ensure the correct insecticide is used).
Cockroaches – Macarthur
Cockroaches are dirty, disease-carrying insects that breed all year round. Macarthur has its fair share of German, Oriental, Australian, and American cockroaches. Cockroaches are attracted to food scraps, water, and faeces. As a nocturnal creature, you’re more likely to see cockroaches at night-time. Cockroaches are known to carry and transmit salmonella, streptococcus, and staphylococcus.
Termites – Macarthur
A termite infestation requires the services of a pest control company that’s licensed to treat termites in Macarthur. In Canberra, not all pest control companies are licensed to treat termites (Canberra Pest Control Group has a licence). The two termite species likely to cause problems in Macarthur are Coptotermes frenchi and Nasutitermes exitiosus (both subterranean termites).
Rodents (Rats and Mice) – Macarthur
As a leading pest control company, we come across brown rats, black rats, house mice, and field mice in Macarthur. Rodents transmit diseases to humans, including tularemia, rat-bite fever, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS), leptospirosis, and salmonellosis. Care should be taken to avoid bites and contact with the urine and faeces of rodents. Home repairs are often required to stop rodents returning.
Spiders – Macarthur
Macarthur has its fair share of dangerous spiders, including the Redback, Eastern Mouse Spider, Black House Spider, White-tailed Spider, Huntsman, and Wolf Spider. Our pest controllers can help contain spiders in your home or business. We treat most spiders with a liquid insecticide (spray); however, burrowing spiders, such as the Eastern Mouse Spider, require a powdered insecticide (dust).
Wasps – Macarthur
Wasps usually start to appear in early spring. Macarthur is home to European wasps (the most aggressive kind), Asian paper wasps, common paper wasps, and social wasps (yellow jackets). Wasp nests – in particular European wasp nests – should be dealt with by a pest controller. Canberra Pest Control Group provides effective pest control solutions for wasps in Macarthur.
Possums – Macarthur
In Canberra, possums are protected by law. Canberra Pest Control Group is authorised to “catch and release” brushtail, ringtail, and mountain brushtail possums in Macarthur. Given that possums are nocturnal and search for food at night, we usually install a one-way door over the “exit” hole to stop a possum from returning to your property. We also use possum cage traps from time to time.
