They are social insects that live in soil and wood and build large nests.

Those who own properties in heavily populated areas are most at risk of termite infestation. At Global Pest Control, we provide both visual and pre-purchase timber pest inspections in accordance with Australian Standards.

Mice and Rats
Mice and rats are troublesome pests that cause a variety of problems around homes and commercial properties. They spoil food, contaminate areas and spread disease. When food is contaminated with rodents’ urine and feces, humans can contract disease like Leptospirosis. Alarmingly, rats are also known to transmit species of parasitic worms, as well as having fleas that can transmit Murine Typhus. Luckily, there are telltale signs rodents leave around the home to tell they are present. This includes gnaw marks, burrows, damage to food containers, droppings, sounds in the roof or walls and evidence under the fridge or dishwasher. To rid your home of rodents, we tailor make baiting programs to solve the problem.
Portuguese millipedes are drawn to homes as they are attracted by light. Depending on the environment surrounding a home, millipede invasions can vary in intensity. Depending on the situation, hundreds or thousands of millipedes can invade your house. These invasions can occur in as little as a few days. While the millipedes usually die once inside your home and cannot breed, they are unwanted intruders. We deliver comprehensive millipede treatments, which are backed by a six month warranty.
Fleas are mostly invisible pests that can quickly cause irritation. Only 5 per cent of the entire flea population is visible, which are adult fleas. The remaining 3 prior life cycles of fleas are invisible. The first lifecycle of the flea is the egg, which is where the process begins. Fleas lay eggs onto the fur of your pets. However the eggs don’t just stick to the fur, but are scattered into the rest of the environment. Within 1 to 10 days, the eggs hatch into larvae. The larvae burrow deep into carpet fibres and organic debris and feeds on adult flea feces and organic debris. Following 5 to 11 days they then pupate. We provide outstanding flea treatments that are backed with a six month warranty, for your peace of mind.
Silverfish and firebrats are nocturnal insects prone to invading new homes from nearby areas. They can also be transported into houses on wallboard, timber and similar products. During the day they hide, while at night they roam seeking food and water. If their hiding spot is unsettled during the day, they dart to the next segregated place. Silverfish choose hiding places where dry food, clothing, starch and books are available including book-cases, closets and cupboards. Silverfish can exist without nourishment for several months. If you would like to rid your home of these pests, we provide silverfish treatments backed with a six month warranty.
While worldwide incidences of bed bugs rapidly declined through the mid 20th century, infestation is now on the rise.

The arms and shoulders are the most commonly affected areas.
