Austrapest is the pest management company of choice for home owners in Concord, Balmain, the Inner West, North Shore, Gladesville, Hills District and in fact we are recommended to customers throughout the Sydney Metropolitan District.
Home owners want quality pest control, they want to know that technicians will arrive at scheduled times, have clean and safe work practices. Home owners want to be sure that their pest management company will be available for after sales services and inquiries. Work required by Home owners is very specific and we take time to discuss and accommodate your safety-related or technical concerns.
Your Austrapest local expert identifies the pest and the extent of the problem thoroughly on arrival.
The pests encountered may have a potential to spread or are vectors of disease, such as cockroaches, rats, birds and cause unnecessary aggravations for the occupants of the property.
Some pests may cause structural and therefore financial damage to the owner of the property, including termites, borers and rats. Some pests can be a real nuisance, such as bed bugs, bird mites, ants and fleas, and some pests can be dangerous, including spiders and wasps.
Our Inspections are carried out in accordance to the Code of Practice for Prior to Purchase Timber Pest Inspections and ustralian Standard 4349.3 - 2010. All our Timber Pest Specialists are Pest Inspector Registrar Accredited.
Rest assured that the problems are dealt with using the best and fastest ways possible. Ask us about our environmentally responsible approach to pest control.

Did you know that termites work in the dark and secret long before home owners may be aware of any activity? Termites can cause thousands of dollars in structural damage to buildings in Sydney. Therefore, a quality pest inspection can save home owners a lot of money. In addition to our comprehensive visual inspection, why not try our new state of the art thermal imaging, Termatrac Xrays, or borescopic inspections to be sure that your home is free from termites. These technologies can pick up thermal energy emitted by termites, which can be as high as 30 degrees C. For more information see invasive inspections.
Ask us about our comprehensive visual pest inspection reports, which are packed full of ideas to maintain your property and keep termites at bay. For example, good subfloor ventilation is extremely important. This is because termites and other household pests love dark, damp and undisturbed conditions. Combine that with loose timbers and leaky pipes in low subfloors and you will be sure to encourage pests into your home. Austrapest can compliment its pest inspections and services with the installation of brass mesh vents in external walls or electric fans to improve subfloor ventilation.
When active termites are found, Austrapest provides a proposal so that consumers can make informed choices when looking at the various strategies in termite management. Austrapest uses modern techniques in termite monitoring and baiting and uses products that are non toxic, which ensure home owners have peace of mind. The aim of the termite management is to monitor and bait termite activity before it reaches your home.
Austrapest uses safe treatments for the control of household pests, such as cockroaches, ants, spiders, wasps and bees, carpet beetles, and bed bugs.
Cockroaches, especially German cockroaches can be found all year round, especially in our kitchens and bathrooms. Not only are they unsightly, but they also have the potential to spread disease. Austrapest uses Synthetic Pyrethroids and gels, which are safer methods to control cockroaches.
The control of rats and mice is important, not only for the health of your family, but also for their safety. This is because rats need to continually gnaw on hard material to wear down their front teeth and in your house this may include electrical and telephone cables, which could cause damage and can even lead to fires. Austrapest uses tamper proof lockable rat and mouse bait boxes for the eradication of these pests.
Fleas and their eggs can remain dormant for many months. Often a home may have a domestic pet that carries flea eggs into the home. These eggs may then hatch when vibrations are felt. This could be why you may have experienced a flea infestation when returning from holidays. Have a look at how Austrapest controls fleas here.
