In Australia, it can sometimes feel like pest control is a constant, never-ending requirement. In most parts of the country, we’re blessed with a beautiful climate, however, that comes with a downside. If you’re in the northern states especially, there’s every chance you need pest control.
There’s never a bad time to start thinking about pest management around your home. Here are a few thoughts on when you should take action.
Why Do I Need Pest Control?
It’s likely that every home in Australia will require some form of pest control. If you find yourself constantly chasing bugs away with over the counter aerosols that don’t work – you’ll be pleased to know there’s a better option.

When Are Pests Most Active?
Getting rid of pests in Brisbane can be an all-year-round proposition. This is because the weather is generally warm for 12 months of the year. That being said, you may get somewhat of a reprieve during the cooler months of June through to August. This is a great time to start planning ahead for the warmer months.
While most pests take a bit of a break in the cooler months, they’ll make their presence felt all the way from September to May. They’re likely to become a problem when humidity is high due to a mixture of hot and wet conditions. This means summer is most likely the time you’ll need pest control to take care of infestations.
Best Time of Year To Treat Your Home
If you want to get one step ahead of those pesky ants, rodents and all other nuisances around your home, August – November is a great time to do it. This gives you a chance to catch unwanted intruders before the humidity arrives and draws them out of hiding.
The first step is a thorough internal and external pest treatment. You’ll want to get onto this around August before insects have a chance to take hold. The entire pest control treatment service is specifically designed to target pests in their harbourage areas, this means the products are placed in specific areas that the pest usually breeds, feeds and multiples. Targeted pest control ensures pest management in the right spots, every time.
