Did you know that roaches can lay egg sacs that can contain up to 50 roaches per egg sac and hatch within a few weeks? Infestations can get out of control quickly if left untreated. Roaches are typically found in the kitchen and bathroom areas; but in some severe cases, they are found in the bedrooms and other living areas too. Roach droppings can be found around electronics, on the walls, cabinets, floors and appliances.
Dealing with a cockroach infestation that just won’t budge? DIY treatments are often ineffective because they don’t get to the root of the problem. If you see one or two roaches in your home, chances are there are more in the walls. Partner with the professional roach exterminators at Combat Pest and we’ll solve your roach problem once and for all. Proper sanitation is key to eliminating roach infestations.
Ridding your home of fleas can be a daunting and costly endeavour. Unlike most household pests, fleas bite dogs and cats as well as people. The bites can cause intense itching and irritation, and a hypersensitive animal will often require veterinary assistance. Fleas can also transmit tapeworms and bacterial infections. In addition to hundreds or thousands of eggs, larvae, and pupae elsewhere in the home or yard. If early signs of fleas are ignored, infestations can quickly spiral out of control.
Flea eradication requires treatment of pets, and oftentimes the premises. Your level of success will depend on how these treatments are performed. At Combat Pest, our professional vacuuming, insecticide application, traps, deep residential cleaning, and post-cleaning services will keep your home safe from fleas. Fleas have a complex life cycle. At some stages of their life cycle, they are resistant to insecticides and other flea control products. In order to get rid of fleas in all stages of the life cycle, two or more follow-up treatments within 5-10 days after the first application are needed.
Ants are social insects that typically live in colonies located in soil, stumps, or inside structures. The biology and habits of each ant species are different, so ant control methods may vary slightly with each species. The key to successful ant control is knowing exactly what species are invading your home and coming up with the proper ant treatment plan to get rid of them. Carpenter ants, Acrobat ants, Sugar ants, Pharaoh ants, Pavement ants, and Little Black ants are some of the most prominent species of ants in Sydney.
Our basic ant treatment consists of spraying a low-toxic insecticide barrier around the exterior foundation walls and applying ant bait gel to cracks and crevices if there is any activity in the interior areas. Sometimes dust or aerosol wall void treatments are needed to treat nests that are located inside of a wall. Thorough inspection, assessing control strategies, treating with the appropriate methods, and post-removal services will be done at your residence to ensure the prevention of your ant problems.
Hornets, yellowjackets, carpenter bees, bumble bees, honey bees, ground bees, paper wasps, sand wasps, cicada killers, and other related species can easily become established in or on buildings, decks, sheds, garages, walls, and fencing. Species including yellowjackets (ground bees), bald faced hornets, bumble bees and cicada killers are found underground and/or in trees, shrubs, and groundcover. Combat Pest provides professional bee control services across Sydney to respond to situations involving the elimination, extermination, removal, and control of insect colonies and their nests.
It is worth noting that when trying to convey information to Bee Control about your stinging insect problem, it often helps you to identify the nest or hive so we can best prepare to take care of your specific problem.
Silverfish have survived for such a long time because they are known to survive in a variety of very tough environments. Silverfish are best known for their vast destruction of various household items such as books, photographs, artwork, clothing and accessories. Some people may be allergic to the faeces and cast skins (moults) of Silverfish, which may trigger conditions such as asthma. Although Silverfish are not fast or prolific breeders, they do live for a long time (up to six years!). If left untreated, infestations can reach plague proportions.
As Silverfish are highly mobile insects, it is important to treat all areas of the home simultaneously. This will prevent Silverfish moving from one area to the next and starting a new infestation. Once the home has been adequately treated, repeat the same protocol within a few weeks of initial treatment. Silverfish are attracted to materials containing starch, sugar and protein. They also feed on dust, debris, dead insects, dead skin cells, algae, lichen and fungi. Silverfish can survive for many months without food.
Many different kinds of spiders live in and around dwellings. Some, such as the cellar spider, construct webs to help entrap their prey. Others, like the wolf spider, are free-roaming and make no webs. Most spiders are harmless and in fact beneficial because they prey upon flies and other pests. The majority of spiders have fangs too small or weak to puncture human skin. Those that are capable of biting humans generally will not do so, unless they themselves are harmed or threatened.
Routine, thorough house cleaning is the best way to eliminate spiders and discourage their return. A vacuum cleaner or broom effectively removes spiders, webs, and egg sacs. Destruction of egg sacs is crucial since each can contain hundreds of young spiders. To reduce spider entry from outdoors, insecticides can be applied as a ‘barrier spray’ around the perimeter of the building. Pay particular attention to door thresholds, garage and crawl space entrances, foundation vents, and the bottommost edge of the siding.
At Combat Pest, we are experienced in dealing with spiders as they are one of the most common insects in this glorious country. Our professional spider control services are most effective when the problem is getting out of hand.
Nothing ruins the serenity of your home like hearing the scratching and clawing of rodents inside your walls. If you suspect you’re dealing with a rodent infestation, let the experts at Combat Pest help you take back your home with our professional rodent control, providing you with affordable relief.

Peace of Mind
Rats and mice are difficult pests to remove once they’ve invaded your property. They can enter your home through a crack as small as a dime and they reproduce rapidly; one single mouse can produce up to 40 offspring a year. Many store-bought rat removal remedies are an accident waiting to happen. Most homeowners misapply these products putting your family and pets at risk in the process and it’s rare they fully eradicate your rat infestation. Our team at Clancy Bros. prioritizes safety and your peace of mind above all, which is why our rat and mice exterminators employ family-safe treatments. You deserve the peace of mind of being rodent-free and we love the satisfaction of keeping our customers happy.
Trapping and Baiting Safety
The most important factor in rodent trapping is the location of traps; traps should be placed close to the wall along runways where rodents frequently travel to be effective. Trapping can be an effective method of controlling rodents, but it may not be the best approach in some situations with high infestations. However, trapping may be a good option in sensitive accounts or in areas with a lot of food competition. Any rodent baits should always be contained and placed in tamper-resistant bait stations or in areas inaccessible to children and pets. There is a low risk of secondary poisoning exposure for pets and non-target wildlife if the proper baiting practices are followed when using rodenticides.
A wasp is any insect of the order Hymenoptera and suborder Apocrita that is neither a bee nor an ant. The Apocrita have a common evolutionary ancestor and form a clade; wasps as a group do not form a clade but are paraphyletic with respect to bees and ants. The most commonly known wasps, such as yellowjackets and hornets, are in the family Vespidae and are eusocial, living together in a nest with an egg-laying queen and non-reproducing workers.
At Combat Pest, we utilize the most modern Integrated Pest Management protocols to monitor, control and evaluate wasps infestation on a regular interval. Every other month monitoring and service is recommended for optimum control of wasps.
