Urgent Termite Treatment – Pest Control Oatley
What To Do If You Find Termites At Your Home – Termite Control Oatley
If you find active termites at your home during renovations or other discovery, it is very important to apply immediate and correct treatment to the termites.
Call your local termite specialist for advice.
Do not spray the termites with an insecticide from the supermarket or hardware store. You may kill a few of the termites, but the remaining up to a million termites will still be lurking, waiting for the next opportunity to recommence feasting on your home.
The wrong treatment will cause greater difficulty to remove the termites from your home and increase the damage and cost to make your home free of termites.
A thorough termite inspection should be conducted and a suitable treatment plan devised. It could include the use of termiticide dusts, foams, baits or liquid treatments.

How To Get Rid Of Cockroaches
What type of cockroaches do you have?
Cleaning floors, kitchens and bathrooms is useful. Keeping food sources and water away from pests will also help.
Pests can still get inside your home from infested items that you may bring into your home.
They can also get inside from gaps and cracks in your home exterior or enter drain pipes and even just fly in.
Our treatments target all entry points.
You may find that the products that you buy from supermarkets and hardware stores does not kill off enough of the cockroaches.
Our pest control Oatley treatments target pests as they have no little resistance to it.
Are There Any Termites in Oatley? – Yes
The natural bushland surrounding Oatley is a great place to live
Late last year I walked up to the new Oatley Park Adventure Playground with my son. While he was riding his scooter I could not help myself investigating nearby trees. Found 3 trees with termite nests within 30 meters of the playground.
The big tree right in the middle of the park at the exit of the large green slide has termites, genus – nasutitermes.
Next time your visiting the park, see if you can find the other 2 termite nests.
The termites are only doing what is natural to them in seeking out wood to sustain the colony. You just don’t want them in your home.
If you wish to hear what termites sound like when they have been disturbed, refer to the video on our Termite Control Specialist page.

Make Your Home Rodent Free
What do you call vermin, rats or mice or just rodents
Rodents (rats and mice) are vermin and carry disease and bacteria. Their droppings can cause health issues, particularly to pets and children.
They may introduce fleas, ticks and mites into your home.
Rats are neo-phobic, this means that they have a fear of new objects. They are very cautious and this has to be considered when setting up traps and baits.
There are ultrasonic devices that make claims to make your Oatley home rodent free and eradicate other household pests, but there is no scientific evidence to show that they work in real world situations.
Norway Rat – (Rattus Norvegicus) also called the brown rat, sewer rat, street rat or wharf rat.
Roof Rat – (Rattus Rattus) also called the black rat, ship rat or house rat.
How To Get Rid Of Rodents (Rats & Mice)
Vermin are a health issue to your Oatley home
To effectively eradicate rodents from your home, a thorough inspection is required.
The droppings of rodents (rats and mice) differ in size and profile and can be used to identify the location and type of rat or mouse.
Rats and mice leave gnaw marks as they try to keep the shape and sharpness of their teeth.
Rub marks along edges can also indicate rodent activity.
Sightings of rodents during the day can indicate a large infestation.
