Our key pest control services in Hamilton
Having an annual pest treatment or “spider spray” as its known means your home is free from the common crawling pests. Many customers arrange to have their house sprayed at the same time their termite inspection is carried out – two services in one! Combining the two services can offer significant cost savings compared to booking the two separately.
For other more specific pests, we offer a range of specialist pest control services (including wasp nest removal and bed bug treatments). Click on a pest below to find out more.

Termite Inspections Hamilton
Termites can cause significant damage to a property in as little as 6 months. The best protection against termite attack is to have an annual termite inspection. Your termite inspector will search the property looking for signs of termite activity and will detect any evidence of termite damage. The inspector’s report will also note any building faults or conditions that may increase the potential for termite attack and will make suggestions for addressing the issues.
Termite Treatments Hamilton
The best way to protect against termites is to install a termite protection system, one that suits the structure and condition of your home. Two kinds of termite treatments are available: soil treatments (where the termiticide is applied to the soil around the property) and monitoring/baiting systems (that use bait in locked boxes pushed into the ground). With termite damage not covered by normal home insurance, installing a termite protection system should be considered a top priority for homeowners.
Hamilton – Key Pests
As is typical of the east coast, Hamilton has a subtropical climate. Warm, humid summers are often interrupted by bouts of very hot, dry weather caused by north-westerly winds. Late autumn and early winter sees the heaviest rain, with winters generally being mild and fairly dry.
Warmth and moisture are the two things pests love. The Hamilton climate means termites will be active year round and cockroaches, ants and spiders will make an appearance from early spring into late autumn.
Termites are undoubtedly the top pest of concern for homeowners due to extensive damage they can cause. Other pests that are common in the Hamilton area include spiders, ants and cockroaches. In autumn and winter, rodents can become a problem when they seek warmth and shelter indoors.
Schedorhinotermes is a particular species of termite that is a cause of concern for homeowners along the east coast. It is what’s known as a “multi-nest” species, meaning the termite colony is comprised of a number of nests – not just one. This means that gaining control of a Schedorhinotermes infestation can be challenging, as it requires killing all the nests near the property. For this reason, property owners in Hamilton are advised to install a termite protection system, which acts as a termite barrier to intercept any active termites in the area. An annual termite inspection will still be required to ensure that the protection system is working well and that termites have not gained access.
