Ants are social insects that have many workers and one to a few queens in their colonies. In your home or work place, you will most often encounter the wingless workers trailing to a food source. These pests range in length from 1-6 mm.


Bed Bug:

Bed bugs are becoming a large problem in hotels and Motels across Australia. These insects feed on people while they sleep. These bugs are wingless, flat, and oval-shaped. They are brownish-red in color and 4-5 mm long.
If these insects are not eradicated immediately when discovered they can become a huge problem and spread to other apartments. If you see bed bugs in your home or apartment immediately contact us fo the right pest control treatment. It takes a professional to get rid of bed bugs.


Bees and wasps:

These are beneficial insects in the wild because they prey on pest insects and pollinate plants. They are flying insects 12-35 mm long often with yellow and black markings. Bees appear fuzzy while wasps are not.
These insects can sting and many people have bee and wasp allergies, but they can simply be avoided unless they are building a nest close to human activity. If you notice nests above your doorway, on playground equipment, or any other place where the wasps and bees can interfere with human activity, If a bee or wasp enters your Home or Work Place contact us fo the right pest control treatment.



Cockroaches are oval-shaped insects with long antennae. They come out at night and often are seen in the kitchen or bathroom. These insects have wings, but cannot fly well. The American and German cockroaches are the most common cockroach pests.


American cockroaches:

The large reddish-brown adults are up to 4 cm long. Each has a light colored ring on its body behind its head. These pests can come into your home or work place through openings to the outdoors and also from the sewers and drains.


German cockroaches:

This pest is lighter in color and smaller than the American cockroach, about 1.5 cm long as an adult. It has two black stripes on its body behind its head. These pests are unknowingly brought into your home or work place.



These brown insects are between 5-16 mm in length and have “pinchers” at the end of their abdomens. Earwigs are most often found outside in mulch, but can occasionally invade your Home or Work Place.



As adults, these pests have two wings and are able to fly. Immature flies are called maggots and need rotting organic matter to live. The most common indoor fly pests include house flies and fruit flies.


House flies:

Adults are grey with black stripes. They are up to 7 mm long. Their larvae (maggots) are white and 3-5 mm long.


Fruit flies:

These insects are very small, yellowish-brown flies with red eyes. They are less than 4 mm long. These flies are most often seen on and around fruit, dirty dishes, and garbage cans.
Large numbers of house flies and fruit flies often are seen in apartments with rotting food on the counters, on dirty dishes, or in the garbage. Cleaning spilled food or beverages, taking out the trash regularly, cleaning the dishes, and storing all fruit in the refrigerator will help prevent fly infestations.



Silverfish are grey, carrot-shaped insects. They are 12-19 mm in length and have long antennae and three long bristle-like tails. They can be found throughout an apartment but prefer areas with high moisture.
They feed on fabric and paper.
The easiest way to eliminate silverfish is to reduce moisture in your Home or Work place and remove any food source. Do not let water pool on the bathroom floors, clean up water behind sinks, and run the air conditioner to reduce the humidity. Store paper and any fabric in airtight plastic containers.



Termites live in the soil and they eat wood. It makes sense they prefer to feed on wood touching or buried in the soil. Studies have shown more than 90% of termite infestations in houses can be traced to wood that is either buried in the soil or touching the soil surface. Elimination of wood/soil contact is the number one action people can take to make their home less likely to be infested by termites. Because subterranean termites nest in the soil and need protection from the elements when they invade your house, they build mud tubes over exposed foundations and travel through these tubes to wooden structures in your house.
The presence of these dried mud tubes is solid indication that you may have a termite infestation in your house. Because of the shorter distance from the ground to the wood framing, houses (or parts of homes) that are built on a concrete slab provide easier access for termites to enter the wooden structure.
