Pest Control Sydney

Rats, mice, cockroaches – pests are just as active as ever all over Sydney right now.

A few main factors that are contributing to high pest activity in Sydney are:

  1. People are home more in the current environment and noticing unwanted creatures creeping around their homes
  2. Less people are in CBD areas causing pests like rats to search further for food and ultimately entering houses more readily
  3. Winter is the time of year when just like humans, pests like rats and mice like to get inside to keep warm

The major pest that is being found by Enviro-PCS Pest Control Technicians right now though are termites. Every week, we are undertaking multiple termite treatments in Sydney

Termite Control is not restricted to summer like many pests, termites are attacking homes all year round.

Why are we finding so many termites right now? Weather conditions from February through to about April encouraged increased activity levels from late summer through the autumn months. Termites were extremely active in this period, searching for food sources and attacking homes.

Below are some pictures showing examples of how termites can get to your home.

Don’t take the risk when it comes to pests like termites. You really need to be having at the very least annual termite inspections.

Termite Inspections when performed to Australian Standards will allow you piece of mind that your home is not currently being eaten by these highly destructive pests. You will be advised of what conditions around your home make it more likely to be attacked by termites and what to do to make your property less attractive to termites.

You will also be provided with options to protect your home and reduce the pressure of attack from termites that will be practical, cost efficient and effective.
