Pest Control Critters

Pest Control – Termites (Commonly known as white ants)
Termites are a major problem in the Northern Rivers and can have devastating effects on structures and their surroundings. According to the CSIRO, 1 in 5 Australian homes will be attacked by termites, causing $780 million in damages every year – 5 times that caused by fires, floods and storms combined. Termites are a hidden danger and quite often they can do severe amounts of damage before you know they’re there. There are a number of ways to treat a termite infestation and Insight Pest Management will provide you with the most appropriate eradication or preventative solutions. These could include:

  • Termite Chemical Treatments
  • Termite Non-Chemical Treatments
  • Termite Baiting And Monitoring Systems
  • Pre-Construction Termite Protection
  • Termite Dust Application
  • Termite Inspections
  • Pre Purchase Timber Pest Inspections


Pest Control – Cockroaches
There is a strong link to show children that have been exposed to cockroach allergens from an early age, have a high chance of developing asthma and dermatitis. For those with asthma, control of cockroaches is extremely important as they are known triggers of asthma attacks. Cockroach disease can affect humans. They carry diseases such as dysentery, gastroenteritis, salmonella, typhoid and poliomyelitis.

Pest Control – Rats
Rats carry numerous diseases and cause a large number of house fires by gnawing on electrical wires. They are known to tear up insulation in walls and ceilings for nesting and can undermine building foundations and slabs with their burrowing activities.


Pest Control – Spiders
The Northern Rivers is home to some of the world’s most venomous spiders – these include redbacks, mouse spiders, the northern rivers funnel web spider, wolf spiders, the black house spider and the white tailed spider. These spiders can cause extreme pain and even death, however, since the introduction of anti-venom, deaths are thankfully extremely rare. Our homes and gardens are ideal for spiders, providing them with food, water and shelter. Their messy webs collect dust and debris and can be very annoying to get tangled in!


Pest Control – Ants
Ants are social insects and live in colonies. For most people ants only become a problem when they enter buildings in search of food and water or when they build their nests in buildings or gardens, however, various species of ants on the Northern Rivers can inflict painful bites and stings, such as the Bulldog Ant, the Green-Head Ant and the Jack Jumper Ant. Ants generally do not cause structural damage to buildings. A few species will occasionally attack electrical wiring for unknown reasons, and in these situations extensive damage can occur.
