Gaps in obscure places

The average rat can enter through holes as small as a 10-cent coin, and smaller pests like cockroaches need even less space. If there are tiny gaps that you haven’t noticed, that is already enough for a critter to randomly enter.

Once they’re in, they might take interest in food in your house, or take up shelter.


Brought in from the outside

Tiny pests can crawl into and hide in luggage or grocery bags without you noticing, causing you to accidentally bring them home. If they exit your bag and find shelter, they may cause an infestation.


Plumbing pipelines

Pests are known to climb through drain pipes and into your home. This is difficult to avoid, as drain pipes must remain clear to provide their important functions.

The Active Pest Management Process in Sydney

Step 1
Step 1

Pest Inspection

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.

Pest Solution

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.

The Follow-Up

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.

Question 1

What time of year is the best for pest control?

Early spring is generally the best time for pest control. Pest activity typically peaks during the warmer weather of summer, making colonies harder to stop. Getting treatment done in spring when pest numbers are relatively lower means the treatment will be more likely to succeed.

Additionally, choosing early spring lets you avoid the rush of pest control requests that flood every summer so that we can give you faster service.

Question 2

Is paying for pest control worth it?

Pest control is no simple matter. If half-hearted measures are taken to combat them, not only will they continue to stay, but they may even threaten your personal safety. Professional pest control is quick and precise, ending your pest troubles as soon as possible without risk.

Question 3

Can I do pest control myself?

It is possible to DIY a solution to a small pest infestation. The problem is that it’s very possible the infestation isn’t as small as you think–there could be additional nests or sources of pests that you are unaware of without a proper inspection. To have complete peace of mind, leave pest control to a professionally trained expert.

Question 4

Why is pest control so expensive?

Pest control experts make the job look easy, but it is anything but. Pest control requires extensive training, costly equipment, and constant proximity to toxic pesticides. Each job also requires a lot of time and physical effort. To offset the costs and labour, pest control prices need to be what they are.

Question 5

How much does pest control cost?

Pest control costs vary greatly depending on the treatment administered and the severity of the infestation. $150 - 300 is an average range for cost, but for a more accurate estimate, contact Active Pest Control Management to get a free quote.

Question 6

Should I clean after a pest control session?

Do not clean your house immediately after pest control treatment has been applied. Once everything has dried after 24 to 48 hours, then it is safe to sweep and vacuum the premises. Wiping and mopping can be done too, but in order for the treatment to remain effective, it is best to reduce the frequency and intensity of mopping for a month or so.

Question 7

How long does pest control last?

Usually, a pest control treatment can last 30-90 days, depending on the type. If the treatment is applied outdoors and it rains, or if the treatment is wiped off with water, the duration will decrease.

Question 8

How often should pest control be done?

For newly built houses or apartments, having quarterly treatments done to deter pests from moving in is recommended. When you have a serious infestation in your home, a treatment once every 3 to 6 months is necessary to get in the clear.

Question 9

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.

Question 10

What are signs of termites?

Termites are sometimes hard to detect until a lot of structural damage has already been done, but if you stay vigilant, you may be able to see some of these early signs:

  • Mud tubes on the ground leading to wood
  • Small pinholes on walls, sometimes under paint or wallpaper
  • Persistently stuck doors or windows
  • Shed wings from alates
  • Termite droppings
Question 11

How do you get rid of rats?

Rat bait and traps are used to dispatch rats that have invaded. Meanwhile, holes and other potential entrances for rats should be plugged to prevent more from entering the household. If necessary, rat poison may be administered, but must be kept away from children and pets.
