Dural Termite Control 

Termites, or white ants, are one of the most typical types of pests that you can experience in the Hills area. Termites form colonies and feed on wood, causing severe residential or commercial property harm. They are one of the most harmful types of pests that can invade your home, and they can significantly reduce its property value or even make it unliveable. Always keeping your home termite-free and decreasing the risk of possible infestation requires an expert solution that will perform routine termite inspections and use effective treatment services. Protect your home or business and keep them termite-free by getting in touch with A1 Pest Control. Our team are the Termite Specialists.

Termite Protection

Dural is a high risk area for termite attack due to the surrounding bush land. There are numerous ways that you can protect your house from termite invasion. These range from Pre Construction methods to Post construction methods.
post construction protection methods involve either a termite Baiting system surrounding the house which involves a bait station being placed every 3m around the house or a chemical termite barrier which involves trenching around the footings and drilling any concrete areas to inject termicide.

 in this video we’re checking on a Sentricon bait station and we’ve got little insects, light insects that are running around. They’re like wood lice, they’re not termites. People confuse them all the time with termites there’s even one on that green plastic holder. You don’t normally see termites unless they’re disturbed timbers and they come out or in their mud and you break up the mud you’ll find them but you won’t find termites running around like that and they’re a much slower moving insect so common misconception these are not termites.

Pre construction protection methods vary widely depending on how your home has been built. If your house is on Bearers and Joists the piers will have pieces of metal called ant-caps between the piers and bearers, although this doesn’t prevent termites altogether they do force them to build their mud galleries out in the open making it easier for early detection and prevention of severe infestation.
if your house is built on a slab some methods of protection used can range from a Termguard reticulation system which is a series of pipelines surrounding the slab perimeter with a number of junction points used to pump chemical around and under the slab to form a chemical barrier or another method can be Termimesh which is placed during construction over service pipes coming through the slab and cavaty walls as a poison free, stainless steel, physical barrier.

Termite Inspection Dural 

The risks of a termite invasion are very real. On average, 1 in 3 homes in Sydney will suffer considerable damage due to a termite infestation, and almost 60% of all properties in Sydney will at one point have a termite problem.

 The only way to avoid a termite infestation is a routine termite inspection by professionals. Termite colonies are notoriously difficult to spot and might cause considerable damage before being discovered. A routine termite examination every 12 months is important for keeping your house termite-free. In high-risk areas examinations should happen each 6 months.

When is the last time you checked your residential property or organisation for termites? Trained specialists at A1 Pest Control Dural specialize in termite control and inspections. Our team even perform thermal termite assessments. Give us a call, and we will be happy to discuss your unique circumstance. Remember, prevention is the best termite control option.

Stored Wood in ground contact is a highly conducive point for termites.

Conducive points for termites that can be avoided are important to address so to decrease the likelihood  of termite attack. any wood debree in ground contact, areas of high moisture like aircon units or heating systems without appropriate run off pipes and even heavy plant foliage around the house perimeter are all attractive points that makes these areas favourable for termites and open for termite attack.

Pest Fumigation Service

Fumigation is one of the most successful approaches of termite control in the USA, as they are plagued by dry wood termites that only exist there.

Fumigation in America requires the substantial use of toxic chemicals such as Methyl Bromide and tenting off the house for a number of days while the pest treatment takes place.

There are a number of strategies of managing a termite infestation, including baiting, chemical barriers, and fumigation. Don’t be mislead by the term “fumigation”. 

This method is rarely used on termite infestations in Australia and is a layman’s term used to describe a gassing technique that we don’t use (as it is too toxic).

Gone are the days when you were forced out of the family home for hours and even days!

The kind of solution recommended is reliant on building construction and environmental conditions and depends on the species of termite. Not all methods work on all kinds of infestation.

End of Lease Flea Treatment

If you rent a domestic house or commercial building, it is essential to carry out a flea treatment once the contract runs out.

One of the most annoying types of pests in domestic buildings is fleas. The sources of a flea infestation are dogs and cats. “Grass” fleas or “Sand” fleas are misnomers for what is typically the cat flea, which attacks both dogs and cats. Pets can easily pick up flea larvae, or grown fleas from other animals. They then rapidly transfer them into the home: infesting bed sheets, carpets, rugs, and other parts of the property.

If your residential or small business property needs end of lease flea treatment, do not hold back to consult with us, a pest control business you can trust.

A1 Pest Control uses the most current techniques when carrying out pest inspections and treatments, utilizing low and non-toxic chemical remedies that are safe for people and pets.

Even So, A1 Pest Control has rigorous methods and process that will safeguard your health and enable you to come back to your house or organisation soon after the treatment method is complete.


Our technicians practice safe methods of treatment through the use of protective equipment such as overalls, rubber gloves and a respirator.


 Pest Control Free Quote in Dural Carpark 

Are you after a free pest control quote in Dural? We attended a carpark recently where birds have been causing problems with noise and droppings.  Here is a short video of what we saw when we arrived:

This is the entrance with no doors barring the way of pest birds. They have no impediment to stop them flying in to roost when they need shelter from the elements.

carpark entrance

So it was no surprise that I found lots of evidence of a chronic infestation that resulted in lots of mess and droppings.  Visitors to the site have been complaining about their cars being soiled by birds roosting above where they were parked. The noise has been pretty bad too. 

So measures had been made to mitigate this and another firm had installed bird spikes and a product called Avistrand wire to prevent them from landing.

This doesn’t get rid of the source of the problem of course.  It just moves them away from these areas.

Have a look at how much effort has been put into getting rid of the problem below:

About the only area that hasn’t got loads of bird spikes is this area, where there is also plenty of bird droppings:

Here is a video that describes what is happening to a very similar carpark in an adjoining area:

So why are pest birds causing so much grief in one carpark, but are completely ignoring another one just a few dozen metres from it?

This is what the other car park looks like:

entrance to first carpark

first carpark no spikes

It’s pretty much like the other carpark, but no bird problems.  Why? The answer is simple.  Just like you and me, the same rules apply.  If you are comfortable where you are, then why move? Crows are very intelligent birds and if they are satisfied living in an area with good shelter and close to food sources, then they will stick to these areas. 

Here are some photos of some pest birds in the area:

The crows just loved all the extra titbits from the garbage bin above! It’s always best to clean up.

We decided to bring in the pest bird control experts from our friends at Australian Pest Bird Management, Jim Woods and Theo Nannes.

"We first used A1 Pest Control a few years ago when we noticed a few termites under a wine barrell in the rear yard of our home. We asked A1 Pest Control Sydney to pay us a visit to have a thorough termite inspection of our home. Bruce and his crew were on time, and very well presented. They explained how they would get rid of the termite infestation using a low toxic method and how their Thermal cameras worked, It worked very well and now we can sleep at night!"
Gary and Carol Harman
"We have been using Bruce form A1 Pest Control for over 4 years now. We bought our new house on the Hills Area, and moved in. our neighbours had problem with rodents and spiders so they are using A1 next door. I asked them if they could come over and treat our house too, as i didn't want to chase pest around our home. The service was not only effective, but carried out without any smelly fumes that we have experienced in our last house. They solved problem next door and I haven't seen a bug since."
