General Pest Control - Commercial & Domestic
General Pest Control is by far the widest category of pests that we treat for home owners, commercial properties and recreational environments.
Feral Animal Management - Wild Dogs
Wild dogs are declared feral animals under the BIO Security Act. All land holders are required to reduce the number of wild dogs on their properties.
Wild dog management needs to be approached in a co-ordinated manner which involves a group approach (you and the neighbours).
Fumigation Services - Rabits & Foxes
The Fox was introduced into Australia in 1860 as a hunting animal. It became classed as a pest species within 30 years.
Feral Bird Control & Management
Since the 1800's, birds have been introduced to Australia for the purpose of controlling insects, and domestication for food or sport. However, most of the introduced birds are now pests which need to be controlled.
Introduced bird species have adapted very well to the environment. There is an abundance of food and shelter for nesting and roosting. People also contribute to the problem by deliberately feeding or allowing birds to feed from rubbish.
Feral bird management has become a large problem in the urban and rural environment with bird populations steadily increasing.
Some of the feral bird species are responsible for the spread of bird diseases and can cause of health issues in humans.
We have also seen an increase in the displacement of our native bird populations due to the aggressive nature and nesting habits of these birds.
We employ a variety of materials and methods to counter these feral invaders such as:
- Physical Barriers (bird netting, bird spike and track systems)
- Chemical Baits and Gels
- Trained Dogs
- Vigilante Helikites and Eco Hawk Kites. Vigilante Helikites are superb for scaring flocks of pest birds as it is able to enter their safe flight zone (Zero to 200 ft.) and mimics predator birds hovering and swooping. We are the Australian distributors of Vigilante Helikites and Eco Hawk Kites we do supply directly to users.
- Lethal destruction (shooting). This has an instant effect on the bird population and is an ideal solution for commercial premises. We are fully licenced and have the experience to conduct this type of pest management.
Main species of Feral Birds include:
- Feral Pigeon (Colomba livia)
- Indian Myna (Acridotheres tristis)
- Sparrows (Passer domesticus)
- Starlings (Stumus vulgaris)
- Peacocks (Pavo afropavo)
- Little Corella (Cacatua sanguinea)
- Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita)
Drone Assisted Thermal Imagery for Pest Animals
Australia is the world's 6th largest country. In 2015, according to the World Bank collection of development indicators, it was reported that the Agricultural land in Australia made 47.63%. This study refers to Agricultural land as "the share of land area that is arable, under permanent crops, and under permanent pastures".
Wildpest Management is a little different to most other pest management services as we cover a wider variety of pest species.
We are fully licenced and insured to conduct these pest management treatments and services.
Our aim is to work closely with you to develop a good relationship and understanding of your pest management issues. This allows us to provide information and tailor a range of treatment solutions best suited for you.
Health and safety issues are of utmost importance when any pest management work is being conducted, and we have well developed Standard Operating Procedures. Our vast understanding of ecology and habitat of the pests allows us to conduct treatment services without causing hazard to your family, pets and the environment.
All chemicals used are approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA). We operate under the following acts for the management of Feral Animals:
- Animal Care and Protection Act 2001 (Qld)
- Weapons Act 1990 (Qld)
General Pest Control - Rodents
Rats and Mice are responsible for enormous losses of food in storage, either by directly eating food or by rendering it inedible through contamination. As they travel around in stored food areas they cominate the areas with droppings (approx 50 per day), urine and hairs.
They play a significant role in the transmission of diseases and organisms such as fleas, lice, mites and ticks. They are also vectors for rat bite fever, leptospirosis, infectious jaundice, rat mite dermatitus, saimonellosis and and other food poisoning organisms gastro-intestinal diseases.
Another concern with rodents is their teeth are constantly growing and to combat this the gnaw on items such as timber in buildings, food containers, telephone and electrical cables which often result in costly repairs or fire damage.
Managing rodents is not simply achieved by placing baits or traps, it may require removing harbourage, rodent proofing areas and ongoing monitoring.
Feral Animal Management - Wild Cats
Cats have been in Australia since European settlement.
To assist with the management of Foxes and Feral Cats we have trained detection dogs.
Feral Animal Management - Deer
Feral deer cause problems such as:
