Pest Control

Spiders

Do you have Spiders at your home or work?

Are you constantly walking through webs around your home? Are you concerned that someone will get bitten with spiders that you notice are in your garden? Is your Arachnophobia alive and well? Do you have spiders in and around your house and you just don't like them there? Maybe you need to have a professional to take a look and advise you on what to do.

Spiders can be divided into two main groups:

* Crawling or Hunting spiders; and
* Webbing Spiders

Crawling or Hunting Spiders

Ground dwelling spider - mouse spider This group of spiders are not found on webs but commonly make their home under leaf litter or bark, in hollows or purpose built burrows and in general garden areas. Unlike the webbing spiders they hunt down their prey down or lie in wait to ambush their prey.

Webbing Spiders

Garden or webbing spiders depend upon silk for their movements. When young spiderlings disperse from the parent web, they produce a strand of silk which is carried by the wind. The spiderling sits or hangs on to the silk and then builds its web wherever it lands. This process is known as ballooning. Mature spiders, when moving in search of food, produce a strand of silk which is carried by the wind until it comes into contact with a building or other stationary object. The spider then travels across this strand of silk and proceeds to build a new web. This is known as bridging.

Bed Bugs

Got bed bugs stay out & call Jae Pest

This is the pest that you will never like to have in your home they will bit you also fast infestation and it is very hard to treat this pest.

This pest Can live for 1 year without food also they don’t die under very hot temperature. If you see this pest act now!


The activity of bedbugs in the home is usually detected by the irritation caused to sleepers. In infested premises evidence of activity can include: live bugs hiding in cracks and crevices in furniture, behind skirting and architraves, among books, in bedding and in other harbourages. Eggs cemented to similar surfaces, hatched or un-hatched, cast skins, leaving small dark-brown marks on sheets, walls and other surfaces on which they may excrete. In the case of heavy infestation a sickly sweet 'buggy odour' may be noticed.

Bedbugs disperse largely by being carried by humans in furniture, clothing and so on. Well established infestations are usually associated with poor housekeeping and low standards of hygiene. When brought into even the cleanest premises, however, they may find suitable hiding places and hosts and thus commence an infestation, although their mobility is restricted to a crawling habit.

Bedbugs have a tendency to 'test bite', which often results in a line of bites. For some people the bite is painless and there is no allergic reaction. However, many people react with local swelling at the site of the bites, followed by mild to severe irritation. Movements of the bugs or scratching may facilitate infection of wounds. In severe infestations, sleeplessness may result.

Cockroaches

Jae pest management offer different type of treatment for different type cockroaches and cost of treatment is depending on it.

Mainly two types of treatment

  • Gel baiting
  • Wet chemical spray and dusting

Types of Cockroaches

roach1roach1roach1roach1
German Cockroaches

German Cockroaches are 10-15mm in length, dark orange/brown in colour.
They are only found internally amongst electrical appliances and warm environments. Cracks, crevices and kitchen door hinges supply great breeding areas for this species and they are usually found in large numbers. German Cockroaches are the WORST of them all as they breed a lot faster and are the hardest to control.

Brown Banded Cockroach

Brown Banded Cockroaches are 13-14mm in length, gold/brown in colour.
These are commonly mistaken as German Cockroaches but they are only found in low numbers (eg. 1 or 2) and usually fly in from the outside neighbouring trees.

American Cockroach

American Cockroaches are 28-44mm in length. Dark orange in colour.
Found in roof voids, drains and sewers and are the largest cockroach found in the Sydney Metropolitan area.

Australia Cockroach

Australian Cockroaches are 30-35mm in length. Dark Brown/Black in colour.
These cockroaches are more easily defined in colour as they have distinct yellow/white markings down the sides of the wings. Found in gardens and subfloor areas.

Smoky Brown Cockroach

Smoky Brown Cockroaches are 30-35mm in length. Dark Brown/Black in colour Found in fences, stored timber and subfloor areas
Oriental Cockroach
Oriental Cockroaches are 20-24mm in length. Dark Brown in colour.
Found in basements, cellars, cool damp areas.

Features of CocKroaches

  • Cockroaches are very adaptable, and often live in human dwellings.
  • The carrying of human diseases in and on their bodies has given the cockroach a pest status. Eg. Salmonella food poisoning.
  • Live among decaying leaf matter, under bark, in caves & burrows, on the foliage of shrubs and in the nests of social insects.
  • Some may even bore into wood or adapt a semi-aquatic habit.
  • They are mostly oval shaped (when viewed from above) with usually long and threadlike antennae.
  • Compound eyes are usually well developed, the legs are often endowed with protective spikes, and some species may have wings.

Life Cycles of Cockroaches

Adult life span may be a few months to over a year. Depending on the species and conditions, the female may produce up to 5-30 oothecae (each oothecae may contain 12-40 eggs).

Habits of Cockroaches

Cockroaches may be carried from place to place as live individuals or as egg cases, in foods and their packaging, luggage, furniture, buses, trains, ships and aeroplanes. They eat virtually any human or animal food or beverage and any dead animal or vegetable materials. These may include leather, cardboard, fabrics, hair, glue and starchy bindings in books. They are mostly nocturnal. Most cockroaches rest in tight cracks and crevices. They groom themselves so as to keep their sensory receptors clean and well functioning. They may contaminate food, utensils and various areas with droppings, cast skins, empty egg cases, dead cockroaches and vomit marks on surfaces. Their mouth and cuticle secretions may cause an unpleasant odour.

Ants


Ants are more of a nuisance pest, although they can also cause health risks and nest can cause subsidence in soil. Ants generally become a problem in houses and other buildings when their nests have become disturbed after rain, or conversely, during dry weather to look for water. Poor household hygiene and pet bowls also draw them indoors. Outside conditions such as sandy areas, pavers and garden pots also are favorable conditions for ants.

The best of best treatment is termidor. Termidor is not just for termite it is best treatment for ants.
It kills nest and longer protection time then most of other treatment.

I only use termidor for any ants job.

 

Wasps

Most wasps have carnivorous larvae that feed on other insects and spiders. The adults provide food for them by capturing prey or by laying the egg on or near the food source, which might be an egg, larva or pupa of another insect. Wasp and hornet control is essential when they have large populations near your living areas. Why are they a pest? If you invade their space they will attack you and sting repeatedly, unlike bees which can only sting once. For controlling infestations, please do not try to control them yourself. Be sure to read all of it before you call a pest control company. Call in an expert with the right protection and equipment for the safest treatment of wasps.

 

Bees

Wall
Bees

Bees are most active during the warmer months of the year, from, early Spring to late Summer. They invade houses in order to establish new colonies and to shelter. Scout bees will fly around a building, looking for entry points. Usually these are holes in the mortar of brick walls, in ventilation holes (weep holes) and under tiles on roofs etc. They do not fly far from a previous colony and it is not unusual to see a swarm of bees settle onto a house in just a few seconds.

This is why bee jobs are considered to be an emergency as many people are allergic to their stings, some severely. They are not naturally aggressive except when defending an established hive. People normally get stung by bees when they step on, lean on or pick them off their clothing. Walking within their flight path can agitate them, as will fast and jerky movements near the hive.

Rats and Mice


Man creates the ideal environment for rats and mice by providing a constant source of food, water and harbourage.

Rodent control is necessary and desirable because:

  • Rodents spread disease either through direct contact or as a vector for another organism.
  • Rodents cause extensive structural damage with their constant gnawing and
  • Rodents damage and contaminate foodstuffs before and after harvest by consumption, gnawing and contamination with their urine, faeces and hair follicles.

For effective rodent control, the main steps are:

  • Inspection, identification, sanitation and rodent proofing. Doors, windows, screens and cracked concrete are easy access for rodents. Look for openings near the top of buildings such as roof vents, eaves, overhangs and roof top air conditioning units. Drainpipes need a screen on the bottom as well as the top.

Do's and Don’ts of Rodents

  • Stored products contaminated by droppings or urination MUST be destroyed. This can be a very expensive process.
  • Look for signs of their existence like well defined runways which show the regular routes the rodents might take. Look for this outside on the soil – their runways will be well packed and free from vegetation. Look inside for pathways free from dust or cobwebs. Also look for droppings, teeth marks and urine stains.
  • Sanitation and hygiene are crucial in the fight against rodents and maintaining your home after pest control services. Piles of garbage, old machinery, timber piles, weed growth and general litter should be removed. Garbage must be kept in rat proof bins with tight fitted lids.
  • Develop a well organised and supervised cleaning and maintenance plan.
  • Proof against re-entry as this is the most effective method when the infestation is widespread across a property.
  • Commercial premises should be aware of the importance of storing and the handling of food and the role this can play in attracting a rodent infestation.

Some information about Rodents

For such tiny (relatively speaking) creatures, the damage caused by rodents can be huge, not to mention costly. Not only is the discolouration and contamination from their droppings and constant urination a ghastly thing to look at, it’s also extremely dangerous to the health and well being of your family.

Wall
Rats

Rodents tend to have razor sharp incisors which can cut through aluminium, lead, cardboard, wood, soft asphalt, mortar and most plastics with ease. This can result in damage to packages and containers. Structural foundations are also at risk by rodents tunnelling in search of food and shelter. Rodents actively forage for food at night using the same routes of movement to and from the food sources.

Don’t be fooled by the fact that rodents have poor vision – this is made up for by the fact that their other senses are extremely sensitive. Their sense of smell and taste are so highly developed they can detect minute quantities of chemical in foodstuffs. Rodents deposit their droppings on all surfaces over which they travel and these, together with stains caused by their almost continual urination, are indications of their presence. Greasy smear marks also become evident along their main routes of movement where they make contact with obstacles.

How can you spot their presence in your home?

It’s possible for you to notice the more obvious signs of rodent infestation; however the slightly less obvious evidence is best spotted by a trained professional pest controller. Treatment is a specialised process as rodents tend to be complicated and sly. Treatment of the problem consists of laying special bait depending on the type, size and food source of the infestation.

Silverfish

These are often encountered pests in homes and buildings throughout Australia. They occur anywhere in homes, but are mostly found in roof cavities, wall voids and sub floor areas. They prefer starchy materials, cotton, linens and photographic prints. Silverfish are a common household pest, living and breeding in cool damp places. Silverfish eat almost anything including paper, book bindings, wallpaper and clothing.

Wall
Silverfish
Silverfishes have shiny bodies covered with scales. They are flattened, long and slender, broad at the front and tapering gradually towards the rear. They are wingless, uniform silvery in colour and grow to just over 1 cm in length.

While silverfish are among the group of fabric pests, they do have a surprisingly varied diet. They eat both animal and plant products but they prefer items containing starch or glue such as paper, starched clothes, flour, paper, photographs, books, and wallpaper. They are frequently found in cardboard boxes that may be used for storing old or unused clothes, books, newspapers and the like and can do considerable damage to these materials.

Silverfish can live up to four years and each year the female lays around 60 eggs. Generally nocturnal (active at night time), they can be often seen scurrying for cover if disturbed. Behind skirting boards and picture rails, in ceiling and wall cavities and inside cupboards are all excellent hiding and breeding areas. They are commonly found in bath-tubs, where they become trapped while seeking food or moisture.
