How We Control Spiders
There are many different types of spiders in New Zealand. The most common found in Auckland include the golden orb web spider, grey house spider, the large brown vagrant spider, and the poisonous white-tailed spider, identified by the white tip at the end of the abdomen. Effective treatment and prevention will keep these nasty looking pests, and their webs, from taking over your home or building. Check out our article on Spiders In New Zealand to help identify spiders around you.
An external surface treatment is applied in areas where spiders typically crawl e.g. skirting boards, window frames, and the ceiling. For web spiders it is also necessary for the webs to be treated directly.
The treatment works on residual contact which means the insect will absorb the product after crawling over it. The product then kills the insect by affecting the nervous system.
Leave cobwebs for at least 14 days after treatment so that visiting spiders (i.e. white tails) will come in contact with the product. Webs can then be brushed away with a broom – do not wash away with water.
How We Control Rats & Mice
Rodents have lived alongside man for well over 300 million years and have survived all natural disasters that the world has incurred over that time. They are a hardy survivor! Home and office caretakers should take rat control seriously due to the number of serious diseases which rats are known to transmit. If rats manage to gain access into your Auckland home or business they can also damage your insulation, walls, joists and electric cables. To prevent diseases, damage and food contamination action should be taken at the first sign of a rat or mouse. For more information refer to our rodent control and identification article.
Our technicians will perform an external and internal baiting programme with anticoagulant rodenticides using tamper proof bait stations where the rodents frequent.
Non-chemical options such as the eMitter system, rat catchers (traps and glue boards) can be used if preferred.
Once the rodent has eaten a lethal dose of bait they will leave the property in search of water.
How We Control Flies
Flies are generally found in organic matter, decaying vegetation, animal excrement, and stagnant water. Odours, such as cooking, can attract flies up to 50 meters from their breeding site. If the wind is right, they can travel several kilometers. Flies can become a serious nuisance, especially in large numbers.
Unfortunately, many people don’t realise that some species of fly also transmit a wide range of diseases including salmonella, dysentery, tuberculosis, cholera and parasitic worms. When you consider that some fly species are able to mature from eggs to adults in just seven days you realise how important fly prevention & treatment is for your building. Read our guide for more information on treatment methods and the different types of flies you get in NZ.
A technician will apply a treatment to external entry points and internal problem areas such as walls, ceilings, window sills and door frames.
The treatment works on residual contact. The insect absorbs the pesticide by crawling over, or landing on, the product. The pesticide then kills the insect by affecting the nervous system.
Additional traps can be setup internally and externally which include aerosol units, smell traps and light traps.
How We Control Fleas
Fleas are a common pest in East and South Auckland homes and offices, especially if there is, or was previously, a pet in the building. As parasites, the greatest concern about fleas are generally their bites, which can result in an uncomfortable itch or rash and even the development of allergies in some pets. They can carry bacteria pathogens and disease.
Considering one flea can lay up to 50 eggs a day, the quick an effective treatment of fleas in essential to prevent infestations. The most common flies you will find are dog, cat, human or rat fleas. Luckily they all require a similar treatment. You can read our article on the flea life cycle and types of fleas occurring in NZ for more info.
The technician will apply a residual pesticide surface treatment, along with an insect growth regulator where flea activity is prevalent e.g. on carpet, mats and wooden flooring.
The treatment works on residual contact, which means the flea must come into contact with the pesticide and absorb the product. The product then kills the flea by affecting the nervous system.
The pesticide cannot penetrate flea eggs, or pupae, so re-infestation may occur between 5 – 21 days after the initial treatment, however the residual product will still be active and the re-infestation will stop after a few days.
How We Control Cockroaches
Cockroaches are nocturnal and omnivore feeders, which can transmit diseases and bacteria pathogens such as salmonella, Dysentery and Gastro-enteritis. In addition, they can cause skin irritations, allergic reactions and breathing difficulties with increases in eczema and childhood asthma being linked to cockroach droppings.
Due to their resilience, adaptability, high reproduction rates and health risks to humans, cockroaches are widely considered a pest. In order to eradicate these pests effectively, the methods must be comprehensive, sustained and systematic. A female cockroach can lay 5 to 30 egg sacs containing 12 to 40 eggs. Knowing this, it is essential that you respond quickly at the first signs of an infestation.
We also offer chemical and chemical free cockroach treatments from north shore to South Auckland for commercial premises. Refer to our guide on the different types of cockroaches in NZ and how we treat them for more information.
Our technician will assess cockroach activity to identify areas needing treatment which may involve an application of a pesticide barrier around the outside of the building.
A barrier treatment is then applied inside the building, along crawl areas such as skirting boards. Additionally insecticide powder, gel bait and monitor traps will be laid/installed.
The treatment works on residual contact. The product then kills the insect by affecting the nervous system. Powder treatment works the same way, while gel bait is treated as a food source and ingested by the insect.
How We Control Birds
Birds are a common pest you will encounter from home or in your business. Generally the 3 biggest types of bird pests that we deal with in our bird control Auckland services are: starlings, sparrows and pigeons.
Starlings breed in October and November. They normally rear one brood a year in holes in trees or walls, and under roof tiles, but a few have a second brood. The clutch of four to seven eggs hatch after 12-13 days, and the chicks fledge in 15 days.
Sparrows breed from spring to summer. The clutch of 3-5 eggs are incubated by both parents and the chicks fledge in 15 days. We only use NZQA approved handlers who are certified in National Urban Pest Control. Contact us today to chat about how our bird control specialists can help you.
