Pest Control Services in Torquay

Most homeowners opt for our general pest control treatment to keep their home free from pests. Our treatment covers the common crawling pests such as spiders, large cockroaches, ants, earwigs and millipedes, and comes with a 6-month warranty.

However, to protect a home from termites, it’s vital to have a termite management plan (as termite damage is not covered by normal home insurance). Annual termite inspections are an essential part of this plan. Having the inspection carried out at the same time as our general pest treatment, is not only convenient but our customers benefit from a small discount too!

Although Torquay and indeed the whole Surf Coast have no “termite declared” areas (according to council), this is just nonsense. We deal with homes that have been badly damaged by termites every day, so homeowners need to take termite protection seriously. With termites capable of causing significant damage in as little as 6 months, termite inspections at least annually, are a must for homeowners in Torquay. Termite inspection do more than just check for termite activity and damage, they will also identify any issues or construction faults that may increase the risk of a future termite attack.

Termite inspections provide a snapshot of the current “termite status” of your property, but it doesn’t actually stop a termite attack. To protect your property from termites it is important to have the necessary termite protection measures. Often, the termite protection installed at the time of construction is no longer sufficient and so a termite treatment termite treatment is required. Geelong Pest Control recommend termiticide treatments to the soil around and under homes in Geelong to create a treated zone, sometimes called a “termite barrier”. We only use quality branded products, with our main product being Termidor.

Key Pests in Torquay

The weather in Torquay is mild all year round, with fairly even level or rainfall across the year. This makes it an ideal environment for pests, which don’t get killed off by cold winters, which can be the case in inland areas.

Spiders and ants are probably the key nuisance pests for homeowners, with businesses more focused on cockroaches and rodents. There can be mosquito and biting midge issues along Spring Creek. Pest start to increase in spring (starting with spiders), with peak pest numbers in late summer and Autumn. Although the winters aren’t particularly cold, the lower temperatures will drive rodents indoors looking for warmth and shelter, making the cooler months, “rodent season”.

Although termites do slow down a bit during winter, they are a threat all year round. 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.
