Our Pest Control Services in Canberra
ACT Pest Control is a full-service pest control company in Canberra. We deal with a wide range of common pests, including termites, European wasps, and rats.
No single insecticide kills every ant species. Our experienced pest control technicians in Canberra will identify the ant species causing problems and use the correct insecticide (in spray, bait, or dust form). Problematic ants include the black house ant, the white-footed house ant, the Argentine ant, and the sugar / carpenter ant. For further information on ants in Canberra, please click here.
Cockroaches are some of the dirtiest insects going around. Canberra is home to Australian, German, American, and Oriental cockroaches. Cockroaches carry dangerous bacteria and viruses, including streptococcus, staphylococcus, salmonella, and polio. Cockroaches breed all year round and eat almost anything. You’re most likely to find cockroaches in your kitchen or bathroom. To learn more about cockroaches, please click here.
Rats and Mice
Rats and mice build nests in roofs, basements, garages, sheds, and wall cavities. Rats and mice are attracted to unsecured food, water, and warmth (particularly in winter). Common rats and mice found in Canberra include the black rat, brown rat, house mouse, and field mouse. Rats and mice shouldn’t be handled by humans, as they bite and carry disease.

Highly venomous spiders in Canberra include the Redback and the Eastern Mouse Spider. Less harmful spiders include the Black House Spider, the Wolf Spider, the Huntsman, the Trapdoor Spider, and the White-tailed Spider. Generally, spiders don’t go looking for trouble but can pose a danger to unsuspecting children. At ACT Pest Control, we use a liquid or dust insecticide to deal with spiders in Canberra.

Termites are a menace in Canberra. Many residents neglect to book an annual termite inspection to protect their Canberra property. Termites enjoy nibbling on anything made from wood, including structural frames, hardwood floors, and roof trusses. Termites in Canberra often locate their primary nest in the base of a eucalyptus tree. ACT Pest Control is licensed in Canberra to perform termite inspections and provide termite treatments.
Common paper wasps, yellow jackets, Asian paper wasps, and European wasps are prevalent in Canberra. Property owners should exercise caution if they find a wasp nest – particularly one inhabited by European wasps. Wasps are aggressive and territorial – with the ability to sting a person repeatedly. Wasps stings are painful and potentially life-threatening (if anaphylaxis occurs). To discover how ACT Pest Control can assist with wasps in Canberra, please click here.
ACT Pest Control also provides pest treatments for bed bugs, carpet beetles, earwigs, fleas, millipedes, moths, and silverfish.
