Residential Pest Control Sydney

We understand that your home is where your heart is. You definitely don’t want to think of your home as the place where pests live too!

Pests such as cockroaches, rats and mice carry diseases such as bacteria, viruses (especially salmonella and streptococcus) and even worms which can cause serious health issues for you or your loved ones.

Keeping your home pest-free is something our highly skilled technicians pride themselves on. We carry out building and pest inspections throughout Sydney.

You should have a property inspection and general pest treatment carried out at least every 6 – 12 months to ensure a pest-free environment for you and your family.

So You Think You Have A Pest Problem?

If you live in Sydney and you think you have any of the following common household pests in or around your home, call us to discuss your problem. We’ll give you the option of either a targeted or general pest control treatment.


Cockroaches are nocturnal creatures. They rest during the day in cracks and crevices before coming out at night. If you’re seeing any cockroaches in your home during the day or before you go turn off the lights at night, there’s likely to be plenty more lurking and running around after dark!

We’ll talk to you about what you’re seeing and give you an obligation-free quote over the phone.

Rats and Mice

Are you hearing or seeing physical evidence of rats and mice?

Rats and mice are not only highly infectious creatures, they are also prolific breeders. Eradicating them is crucial before they contaminate your food, spread disease and damage your electrical wiring.

Australia has more than 2,400 different species of spiders, and about 50 that are harmful to humans.

If you’re not sure what spiders you’re seeing or you’re unsure of how big of a problem you really have, then we’ll talk to you about what you’re seeing and give you an obligation-free quote over the phone.


Ants love to live in communities, so if you’re seeing some ants in and around your home, rest assured there are plenty more nearby.

Bed Bugs

Often the first sign of bed bugs is spots of blood on your sheets where these pests have pierced your skin to enjoy a meal. Alternatively, you may notice evidence of bed bug droppings.

Bed bugs bite and they are also prolific breeders. An adult female bed bug can lay between 200 and 500 eggs a year. Bed bugs are nocturnal and spend their days hiding in cracks and crevices in and around your bed before coming out at night.

And what about the pests you might not see, hear or feel?


Termites are perhaps the most damaging of all pests and the hardest to identify.

You may have seen flying termites which are often the first sign of a larger termite infestation in your home. Or you might have seen spare pieces of timber around your house along with termite tunnels or galleries.

Termites can cause a lot of damage to your home’s foundations. It’s crucial to prevent termite infestation or to eradicate them as soon as possible if you’ve already been infested. They are prolific breeders and they can damage your home very quickly.

We’ll talk to you about what you’ve found (or what you may not be seeing) and give you an obligation-free quote over the phone.

    In most cases you do not need to leave, however we advise our clients to at least vacate the premises until the control agent dries normally between 1-2 hours.

  • Do I have to empty the kitchen cupboards out?

    Your welcome to but with careful consideration. When you hire a Licensed Pest Control Technician you will find they have been highly trained in the correct identification of pests and also how to identify the correct source of the problem before applying pesticides.

I was looking for a solution to evict the dozen pigeons roosting under my solar panels, they were making a constant mess including building a massive nest. I came across Forensic Pest control via their website and found dealing with the team a real pleasure, the team was punctual and efficient. Right from the start dealing with Janelle kept me up to date and then to Chris and the team, they are really professional and take their business seriously. Highly recommended.
