Key Pests in Ballarat

Ballarat has four distinct seasons and being inland and at elevated altitude (400-600m), it is particularly known for its cold winters with significant rainfall during the colder months. Its elevated position means the summer month are mild, rather than hot, despite being inland. Ballarat is known as a pretty windy city which make the temperature feel cooler year round. This weather has an impact on pests and the “pest seasons”.

Spiders and insect pest only really become an issue in the warmer months and the good winter rainfall often create ideal conditions for spiders in the spring. European wasps become a problem in summer and into Autumn. Although rodents, especially mice, can be a problem year round, the cooler months are viewed as the rodent season, when rats and mice come inside looking for warmth and shelter.

Although termites can be active year round, they do slow down during winter. However, homeowners always need to be vigilant and with the surrounding areas of bush, there is always a plentiful supply of new termite queens looking for a place to start a nest year year.
