During Melbourne’s cooler months – March through to September – businesses throughout the area suffer from an influx of rats and mice. This is when rodents tend to move indoors looking for warm and dry places to shelter. While frequently found in industrial and built-up areas, rats and mice will thrive wherever they feel safe, and have a steady source of food. Rats and mice are the bane of all businesses in the food industry, since they spread disease, contaminate food, and any sign of an infestation can ruin a business’s reputation.
Cockroaches are resilient creatures and an almost universally loathed pest. You can definitely expect to
find cockroaches in dirty, unsanitary spaces, but they will breed and spread in any environment, as long as they have access to food. No business will accept any sign of cockroach activity, but a cockroach infestation presents a very high risk to businesses in the food and hospitality industry. The health risk to customers and employees is enough to cripple any business, but so too can any reputational damage.
A rigorous, proactive approach to cockroach control is essential, and you can expect our pest controllers to not only help implement a long-term cockroach control solution, but to also recommend specific steps you can take to help manage it. This includes preventing cockroach infestations around any stored products on your premises.
Possums love to make their homes in warm dry buildings, and are quite prolific in Melbourne. Possums are considered a pest because once they have found an environment that is dry, and offers easy access to food, they will attract other possums. Because possums are larger than rats and mice, you can expect them to leave a much bigger mess when they go scrounging for food.
Like many other pests, possums spread disease, contaminating surfaces and foods with their droppings and urine, and left unchecked, they will cause considerable structural damage. But possums are also protected wildlife, so you should never attempt to remove possums yourself. Always contact a pest control specialist to help you out with your possum problem.
Not all birds are considered pests, but pigeons and seagulls commonly spread bird diseases, and cause unsightly damage with their droppings and nests. Magpies and plovers pose a different risk, swooping and attacking anyone who strays too close to their nests in spring, something you wouldn’t want your staff or customers exposed to. A pest control professional will be able to advise you on solutions that aren’t harmful to any birds, but will help keep your staff and customers safe, and avoid any failed health audits.

The cooler climate of Melbourne does not exempt the area from termites, and the damage they cause. Termite control regulations afford newer building and houses some protection against termite infestations, but regular termite inspections are still recommended for all buildings and homes.
No, white ants – like wood ants – is simply an older term used for termites. Like many other insects, termites are divided into different species, with appearance varying considerably across the different species. Australia is home to around 300 termite species, and while only some of these are responsible for property damage, you should always contact a professional pest control service to inspect.
Most home and commercial insurance policies do not provide any cover for termite damage. Your commercial insurer may offer separate pest damage cover, but this would not be part of standard commercial cover.
Absolutely. Our pest control services are available throughout Melbourne, from the western suburbs across to the eastern suburbs, and from the northern suburbs down to the southern suburbs. We also provide pest control services to smaller regions around Melbourne, including Ballarat, Craigieburn, the Yarra Ranges, and Werribee. Contact us to find out if your area is covered.
Bed bugs can cause considerable reputational damage to any business operating in the hospitality industry. Train your staff to look for evidence of bed bugs, which includes tiny blood spots on bed linens, and tiny faecal matter that is usually rust coloured or black. Bed bugs are very small – around 5-6mm – so they are not always easy to detect unless you know what other signs to look for.
Bed bug bites pose no serious risk to human life, but they are unpleasant, and can damage the reputation of your business. In the right environment, bed bugs will have no difficulty moving about, and breeding, leading to a wide-spread infestation very quickly. The best response to a bed bug problem is to call in a professional pest control service, for a fast acting, and long-lasting solution.
The most effective way to prevent cockroaches in your business is through the use of professional, proactive pest control services. Cockroaches thrive in environments that offer protection, and a steady supply of water and food. You can take steps additional steps to prevent cockroaches by:
Blocking access to food and water. Don’t leave food out on counters, and where possible, store food in sealable containers, or sealed bags. Keep sinks and buckets clean and dry, and never leave water standing overnight.
Keep workspaces and kitchens clean. Throw away food scraps, and wipe up all food and liquid spills. Make sure all garbage containers can seal, and empty them regularly.
Make sure all storage rooms are dry, and free of clutter. Cluttered storage rooms that are infrequently used make the perfect shelter for cockroaches. Pest control solutions are more effective if areas like this are uncluttered and dry.
Seal cracks and gaps around electrical sockets and plumbing, which cockroaches can use as entry points.
We can not only help keep your Melbourne business clear of cockroaches, but also give you valuable advice on the measures to implement in your building to reduce cockroach infestations.
We commonly refer to rats and mice as rodents, but when it comes to pest control, it is important to know the difference. The methods for control an infestation of mice is different to that for rats, and confusing the two won’t help. Although they are both nocturnal, critical differences between rats and mice include:
Rats are much larger than mice, and can reach up to 40 cm in length. Mice are usually 12 to 20 cm in length.
The tails of rats are long, but scaly and hairless. Mice also have long tails, but they tend to be thinner, and have hair.
Mice have larger ears than rats, while their snouts are triangular in shape. The snouts of rats are much more blunt than that of mice.
Despite these differences, the use of professional pest control is always recommended since both rats and mice carry diseases that can infect humans. On top of the serious health risk presented by rats and mice, there is the risk of costly damage to property and infrastructure.
Like cockroaches, mice are drawn to sheltered environments with a source of food and water. Mice seldom have difficulty getting into closed spaces, with a 6mm hole being more than enough for a mouse to squeeze through.
Mouse traps can be effective for responding to some mouse invasions, but pest control services remain the ideal solution. Being nocturnal, a mouse problem can go undetected for some time, and only become noticeable once the population is large and out of control. Our pest control technicians are trained to detect mouse problems of any size, locate the nests and possible entry points, and to eliminate and control all manner of pest problems in Melbourne.
Mice are able to start breeding from the age of two months onwards, and can easily birth new litters up to 10 times in a year. Mice in the wild typically live for 1-2 years.
