The climate in Sydney has ideal conditions throughout the year for insects to multiply. You will see a particular increase in activity in the time following a few hot days when there has been rain.
Regular pest inspections and treatments are important to control pests that can be destructive to property. Many pests are harmful to you and your family or just a nuisance.
Termites continue to cause damage to your Sutherland Shire home throughout the year. Their activity may slow down but it will not stop as they still need to feed the colony. A termite inspection is recommended to be conducted yearly for all Sydney homes. More frequent inspections may be required with certain suburbs in The Shire, particularly if you are close to bushland, wooded parks or anywhere along the tree lined foreshores.

Urgent Termite Inspections with AB1 Pest Control Sutherland Shire
What To Do When You Find Termites At Your Sutherland Shire Home
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.
For a brief introduction to keeping your Sutherland Shire home safe from termites, watch the following video from the Bug Dr.
AB1 Pest Control Sutherland Shire Specialise In Termite Treatments & Termite Inspections
Do I need termite inspections in the Sutherland Shire?
Termites can cause extensive and costly damage to your home if left unchecked. The damage caused by termites is not covered by your insurance.
There are many different types of termites that may be in and around your property. They eat wood and any cellulose based products like paper and cardboard.
Some people refer to them as white ants but they are not part of the ant order (Hymenoterans). They are actually more closely related to the cockroach family of insect (order Blattodea).
Depending on the species there can be up to a million or more termites within a colony. Termites in the colony perform different roles. There are workers that dig tunnels and collect food for the colony. For protection from ants and other invaders, there are soldier termites. The soldiers can be identified with larger darker heads and large jaws or mandibles.
There are flying termites that are sent out annually to start new colonies.
Of course there is the queen that can produce 30,000 eggs per day, depending on the species.

How To Remove A Tick
Do not use household tweezers
Ticks can transmit up to 15 viruses and infections. Some effects from tick bites to people are still yet to be fully understood.
Ticks are pests to people and your pets.
Some symptoms from tick bites include; fatigue, fever, headache, joint pain or skin rashes.
When removing ticks use caution. Grasp between the ticks head and hosts skin with specialist tweezers or tick remover and slowly pull away. Do not squeeze the tick. Better still is to freeze the tick with a skin freezing spray from the chemist.
Watch the video on this page for more information on how to remove a tick.
Make Your Home Rodent Free
How to identify and eradicat rodents – rats, mice and other vermin
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 Sutherland Shire home rodent free and eradicate other household pests, but there is no scientific evidence to show that they work in real world situations.
AB1 Pest Control Sutherland Shire Will Get Rid Of Your Rodents (Rats & Mice)
Vermin are a health issue to your Sutherland Shire 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if it rains on the day
If the rain if only light or intermittent your treatment can proceed as planned.
When the rain is persistent and heavy, the interior areas of your home can be treated first, we return another day to service the exterior of your home.
Heavy and persistent rain in the days following the treatment can compromise the effectiveness but only in areas fully exposed to the elements.
Preparation prior to treatment for your pest control Sutherland Shire service
Usually there is no need to move furniture or remove items within the kitchen cupboards during a standard service.
If your treatment is for fabric or pantry pests, it may require some preparation. Depending on the extent of infestation, some preparation may be required when treating German cockroaches.
How To Get Rid Of Cockroaches
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.

The longer that you can leave the treatment undisturbed the better. For interiors it is OK to fully clean untreated areas. For areas around the skirting boards at the edges of the room a light broom can be completed.
For the exterior areas wait 1 to 2 weeks before cleaning around windows and doors.
