Construction sites need pest control because construction work greatly disrupts the wildlife in the area. As the landscape is transformed, animals that are disturbed, including pests, come out into the open, which may create need for pest control. Moreover, workers and machines kick up dust and leave debris or waste around, creating environments that are very attractive to pests. After work is finished and the new structure is moved into, pests and other animals that originally resided in the area may return, giving the new property owners grief.

Give us a call for our Construction Pest Control Services in Sydney, and we’ll come out to you no matter where you are in the greater Sydney area!
After getting your call, we’ll come to your location and perform a thorough pest and termite inspection in Sydney.
We do this to accurately determine the scope of the pest problem going on, which will influence our methods.
It’s very helpful if you can point out where you’ve seen pests or even where a nest is. However, we will still perform full pest infestations of the building in case there is more than one source or nest.
Based on what we learned from our inspection, we then decide on suitable countermeasures.
Everything depends on the severity of the infestation; the treatment may range from simply leaving traps or poison for the pests, to the full-on application of pesticides and other more powerful treatments.
In the case of the latter, you may consider vacating the premises, but it won’t be a requirement thanks to our completely environmentally-friendly and non-toxic pest control solutions.
After a certain period, we’ll come back to check how effective our solution has been, resetting traps or reapplying pesticides if necessary.
If treatment wasn’t as effective as expected, we always have several backup plans. We have a 12-month guarantee on any job, so rest assured that we’re going to stick around and get things done right, letting your property stay pest-free for at least a whole year.
What pests are most common in construction sites?
Cockroaches and rodents tend to be attracted to the waste and dirt produced from construction, but the biggest threat by far is termites. Wood is a critical material in construction, and it is often exposed during the process. If the weather gets humid or rains, this may attract termites to the site. Termite prevention is absolutely crucial
Can termites eat through concrete?
Termites cannot penetrate concrete on their own, but cracks may form on old concrete with enough strain. This allows termites to enter and get at any wood inside that is reinforcing the concrete.
Do I need pest control when I don’t have pests?
Pest control includes preventative measures, such as termite barriers that block them from entering. While you can trust pest control experts to get rid of your problem when it happens, it is still better to not have had an infestation at all in the first place. That’s why you need preventative pest control.
The best way to keep a construction site free of pests is to not give them a chance to infest in the first place. Here are some tips you can consider to prevent pests:
The best defence against pests is mindfulness. Remain aware of common places pests may hide on site, and check frequently. When building materials arrive from suppliers, inspect them for pests just in case.
Waste from building materials, food scraps left by workers, and more types of rubbish create clutter, presenting a source of food or shelter to pests. Clear the site regularly.
Exposed wood is a termite magnet, especially when the weather is humid. All wood, used or not, should be covered up every night and stored out of direct contact with the ground, so that underground pests can’t get to it.
Water that pools in holes and becomes stagnant ends up being perfect breeding grounds for mosquitos. Drain the water and fill the holes.
Every construction job should absolutely be protected by a termite barrier. The barrier is a wall of termite poison that prevents termites from making it far enough to get to your wood sources. Why deal with the headache when termites can simply be blocked off?
